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.

Mike Napoli is reportedly set to sign with the Red Sox, so Soto sits atop the Rangers’ catching depth chart for now at least.
