Rival executives told Buster Olney of ESPN.com that they don't expect the Rangers to tender Geovany Soto a contract.

It's no surprise, as Soto will get a raise in his final year of arbitration after making $4.3 million this season. The 29-year-old hit 11 homers but batted a paltry .198/.270/.343 this season for the Cubs and Rangers. It's not a given that he'll find a team willing to give him a starting job.
