The Texas Rangers could be in the market for a veteran catcher, even though general manager Jon Daniels believes C Robinson Chirinos is capable of starting at least 100 games next season. C Tomas Telis, who has performed well in winter ball, is currently slated to be the No. 2 catcher. C Jorge Alfaro is expected to be added to the 40-man roster but is unlikely to reach the majors before September 2015.

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 (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.
