Geovany Soto (knee) caught a bullpen session for Nick Tepesch on Sunday and has begun taking live batting practice as he continues to work his way back from March's knee surgery.

As long as he continues to progress, he should be cleared to rejoin the Rangers shortly after the All-Star break. The veteran backstop could be an interesting power option in deeper two-catcher mixed leagues.

Geovany Soto has been diagnosed with a torn lateral mensicus and is expected to miss 10-12 weeks.

It's already been a rough spring for the Rangers, and here's another punch in the gut.

Arencibia and Robinson Chirinos are the Rangers' backup options at catcher.

Geovany Soto will undergo what is being described as a "precautionary" MRI exam on his ailing right knee.

While the Rangers say it's precautionary, any type of knee injury that requires an MRI at this stage of the spring certainly puts his availability for Opening Day in jeopardy. With Robinson Chirinos tearing the cover off the ball this spring, and J.P. Arencibia struggling, the Rangers catching situation could get very interesting in the coming days.
