News: Kottaras was reassigned minor league camp Friday.
Impact: Kottaras was initially announced as the White Sox's backup catcher, but later backtracked and Geovany Soto was awarded the spot. He'll likely begin the season in Triple-A, but probably remains one of the options to return as a backup should one of the to catchers suffer an injury.

News: Kottaras will not be awarded the White Sox's backup catcher role after it was announced Geovy Soto will serve in that role Tuesday.
Impact: Kottaras did little to help his cause this spring, slashing .174/.240/.391 in 23 at-bats. It is not clear yet if he will remain in the organization, or if he will be free to try his luck with yet another club (he is up to eight).
