Last night there was news of catcher Geovany Soto re-signing with the Rangers after being non-tendered last week and now Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com says it’ll be a one-year deal worth around $3 million.
Soto once looked like a long-term building block for the Cubs, winning Rookie of the Year in 2008 as a 25-year-old, but he’s hit just .215 with a .674 OPS in 224 games during the past two seasons while struggling to throw out runners and turns 30 years old in January.
