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.
