White Sox's Geovany Soto feeling good at the start of spring games
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

White Sox catcher Geovany Soto said he is feeling good after being limited to 78 games the last two seasons due to injuries. He missed time in 2014 because of arthroscopic surgery on his left foot and a torn meniscus in his right knee.

"I love where I'm at," Soto said, per The Chicago Tribune. "My legs feel great. My whole body feels great. I'm just anxious to get started and show these guys what I can do, hopefully stay healthy and break camp."

White Sox C Tyler Flowers: 'It's my job to lose' behind the plate
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers told reporters he doesn't plan on giving up his starting job easily, per MLB.com. On Thursday, Geovany Soto signed a minor-league deal with an invite to spring training.

"I really don't think there's much of a question going in there," Flowers said. "I would definitely say it's my job to lose. Barring an injury, there's really no doubt I'll be the guy catching opening day."

Flowers avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year deal, worth $2.675 million for this season. The 28-year-old hit .241/.297/.396 with 15 homers and 50 RBI over 407 at-bats in 2014.

"At this point, there's no reason to move off of that," general manager Rick Hahn said. "Competition is good. It brings out the best in people. And if someone comes in and fights for that job and earns it, I'm sure we'll be flexible. But certainly, we view Tyler as the starter."

Geovany Soto talking to four teams
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Free-agent catcher Geovany Soto is talking to four teams, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

The 31-year-old Soto was limited to just 24 games due to knee and back issues. He hit .250/.302/.363 over 80 at-bats. Soto has had issues staying healthy the past couple seasons, and it's unclear if he's viewed as anything more than a backup at this point in his career.
