Texas Rangers C Geovany Soto (groin) was activated from the disabled list Friday, Aug. 8. In a corresponding move, SP Jerome Williams was designated for assignment.
Fantasy Tip: Soto is worth considering in deep mixed leagues, two-catcher formats and AL-only leagues. However, you should keep your expectations in check.

Texas Rangers C Geovany Soto (groin), who will be activated from the disabled list Friday, Aug. 8, is set to split playing time with C Robinson Chirinos when he returns. Chirinos hit his 10th and 11th home runs Tuesday, Aug. 5, and leads American League catchers by throwing out 40 percent of attempt base stealers. Soto will be the primary catcher for SP Yu Darvish, and Soto could have a slight edge in playing time over Chirinos.
Fantasy Tip: It's unfortunate for those Chirinos owners out there in AL-only and two-catcher leagues. He's still worth owning in those formats, but his PT will be cut considerably. Soto should be owned in similar leagues.
