News: Soto has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right groin, less than a week after he returned from right knee surgery. Impact: It's the latest disheartening injury for the Rangers in a dreadful season full of them. Soto got hurt running the bases Monday night and left a 4-2 victory over the Yankees.(STATS, 7:50pm)

News: Soto was placed on the 15-day DL on Tuesday with a right groin strain. Impact: Just three games into his 2014 season -- Soto missed the first three and a half months recovering from knee surgery -- the 31-year-old was forced out of action due to a groin strain. He wasn't especially optimistic after the game, and sure enough, he'll require a stint on the 15-day DL. Nick Martinez was optioned in the corresponding move and will start Tuesday against the Yankees, while Robinson Chirinos will likely handle the bulk of the work behind the plate for Texas.(RotoWire, )

News: Soto (groin) is out of the Rangers' lineup Tuesday against the Yankees. Impact: Groin tightness forced Soto from Monday's game, his third game back after missing the first three and a half months with a knee injury, and he's out of the lineup Tuesday as a result. He was not optimistic about the injury when asked about it after Monday's game, so it would seem another DL stint is at least a possibility for the 31-year-old.(RotoWire, )

News: Soto left after the top of the sixth Monday with tightness in his right groin. Impact: Soto is 4 for 11 in three games this season.(STATS, 11:57pm)
Mon. July 21, 2014
News: Soto is not optimistic about the groin injury that he suffered during Monday's game, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. Impact: Soto was removed in the sixth inning due to tightness in his right groin, just three days after making his season debut. The Rangers have three other catchers on the roster, meaning Soto's injury could lead to extra at-bats for Robinson Chirinos, J.P. Arencibia, and/or Chris Gimenez.(RotoWire, )
Mon. July 21, 2014
News: Soto was removed from Monday's game due to tightness in his right groin. Impact: Soto, who sustained the injury while crossing home plate in the sixth inning, finished his night 2-for-3 with a run and an RBI. He was replaced by Robinson Chirinos, one of four players on the Rangers' active roster with experience behind the plate. If Soto can't go Monday, the Rangers could turn to Chirinos, Chris Gimenez or J.P. Arencibia. There's no indication that Soto's injury is related to the knee issue that kept him out for the entire first half of the season.(RotoWire, )

News: Soto is out of the Rangers' lineup Saturday against the Blue Jays. Impact: Making his 2014 debut Friday after a lengthy recovery from arthroscopic knee surgery, Soto went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in a 5-1 Rangers win. It looks like Soto will split duties behind the plate with Robinson Chirinos for the time being, with J.P. Arencibia seeing the bulk of the work at first base.(RotoWire, )

News: Soto (knee) was activated from the 60-day disabled list Thursday. Impact: After suffering a torn meniscus in spring training, Soto is finally fully recovered and appears poised to make his season debut Friday vs. the Blue Jays. At present, the Rangers still have all of Robinson Chirinos, Chris Gimenez and J.P. Arencibia on the 25-man roster to soak up at-bats at catcher, but Soto is generally expected to emerge as the Rangers' primary backstop.(RotoWire, )

News: Soto (knee) will be activated from the 60-day DL during this weekend's three-game set in Toronto, Anthony Andro of FOX Sports Southwest reports. Impact: Soto will cozy into the 25-man roster spot vacated by reliever Jason Frasor, who was dealt to the Royals on Wednesday. After missing the entire first half due to a torn meniscus in his right knee, Soto will add some pop to the backstop, as he's belted a homer every 23.5 at-bats during his major league career. However, he failed to leave the yard during his rehab assignment between Double-A Frisco and Triple-A Round Rock, slashing .200/.263/.257 with one RBI and four runs scored in 35 at-bats.(RotoWire, )
