Geovany Soto: Becomes free agent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto (elbow) will become a free agent after the White Sox declined to exercise his 2018 club option.

Soto hit .190/.271/.405 in 13 games with the White Sox before elbow surgery ended his season in mid-May. He'll look to catch on elsewhere as catching depth, though he'll need to prove he's healthy before doing so. His recent injury issues could force him to settle for a minor-league deal.

White Sox's Geovany Soto: Still hopeful to play in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto, who has been sidelined since mid-May following right elbow surgery, remains hopeful to return from the 60-day disabled list before the 2017 season ends, Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports.

Soto said he's 100 percent recovered from the procedure and has been rehabbing in Chicago so he can serve as a mentor to the team's relatively inexperienced healthy backstops, Omar Narvaez and Kevan Smith. Even so, it's unclear how close Soto is to playing in games, and with the minor-league schedule set to end shortly, Soto could be forced to pick up at-bats in simulated games if the White Sox are serious about activating him before season's end. If he doesn't return in 2017, the 34-year-old Soto, who will be a free agent this winter, said he fully intends to keep playing next season.

White Sox's Geovany Soto: Lands on 60-day DL in advance of surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list after it was announced that he would undergo arthroscopic elbow debridement surgery Tuesday.

Although the issue was initially tabbed as a bout of elbow inflammation, it seems that the ailment at hand is much worse than that, ultimately leading the veteran backstop to head under the knife. The White Sox anticipate Soto to be out for at least 12 weeks, which would put his return date sometime in August at the earliest. Expect Omar Narvaez and Kevan Smith to shoulder the load behind the plate until Soto returns.

White Sox's Geovany Soto: Considering surgery for elbow issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto hasn't ruled out surgery to address the inflammation in his right elbow, Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports.

Soto was placed on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday after experiencing a recurrence of loose bodies in the elbow, the same issue that resulted in a trip to the DL in mid-April. The White Sox are still assessing treatment methods for Soto, but if surgery is ultimately deemed the best solution, the veteran backstop could be in store for an extended absence. While Soto is out, Omar Narvaez figures to serve as the team's regular catcher.

White Sox's Geovany Soto: Lands on DL with elbow inflammation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Soto was placed on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday with right elbow inflammation, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

The veteran backstop was scratched from Tuesday's lineup due to soreness, a troubling sign considering he was on the DL last month with the same injury. Soto missed nine games in his previous DL stint and has appeared in just 13 games this season, where he's racked up a .190 average. Omar Narvaez will, once again, be in line for the lion's share of starts behind the plate.
