Texas Rangers C Geovany Soto (groin) was activated from the disabled list Friday, Aug. 8. In a corresponding move, SP Jerome Williams was designated for assignment.
Fantasy Tip: Soto is worth considering in deep mixed leagues, two-catcher formats and AL-only leagues. However, you should keep your expectations in check.

Texas Rangers C Geovany Soto (groin), who will be activated from the disabled list Friday, Aug. 8, is set to split playing time with C Robinson Chirinos when he returns. Chirinos hit his 10th and 11th home runs Tuesday, Aug. 5, and leads American League catchers by throwing out 40 percent of attempt base stealers. Soto will be the primary catcher for SP Yu Darvish, and Soto could have a slight edge in playing time over Chirinos.
Fantasy Tip: It's unfortunate for those Chirinos owners out there in AL-only and two-catcher leagues. He's still worth owning in those formats, but his PT will be cut considerably. Soto should be owned in similar leagues.

Texas Rangers C Geovany Soto (groin) is eligible for activation from the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, Aug. 6, but he will not come off the DL until Friday, Aug. 8. He is 5-for-12 with a home run in five minor-league rehab games for Triple-A Round Rock. The final step before he is activated will be to play a full nine-inning game.

Texas Rangers C Geovany Soto (groin) was placed on the disabled list Tuesday, July 22, with a strained right groin. Soto left the game early Monday, July 21, with tightness in the same groin.
Fantasy Tip: If you took a leap of faith on Soto, and cannot stash him in a disabled list slot, he is safe to drop. When healthy, he has marginal value in two-catcher formats and AL-only leagues, so check back for his return.

Texas Rangers C Geovany Soto (knee) was activated from the 60-day disabled list Thursday, July 17, and C J.P. Arencibia has been recalled from Triple-A Round Rock.

Texas Rangers C Geovany Soto (knee) will be activated this weekend to take the roster spot of RP Jason Frasor, who was traded to the Kansas City Royals.
Fantasy Tip: Soto is expected to split time at catcher with Robinson Chirinos for the remainder of the second half of the season. Soto would be a nice addition in two-catcher or AL-only leagues if you need some at-bats from your catcher spot.
