Geovany Soto Out 10-12 Weeks

More bad injury news for the Rangers: starting catcher Geovany Soto will miss 10-12 weeks with a torn lateral meniscus in his right knee.

Soto, 31, hit .245/.328/.466 (114 OPS+) with nine doubles and nine home runs in 54 games as A.J. Pierznyski’s backup last season and re-signed with Texas on a one-year, $3.05 million contract over the winter with the intention of serving as their starter behind the plate.

With Soto out, catching duties figure to fall on J.P. Arencibia and Robinson Chirinos.
