Angels | Geovany Soto signs with Angels

Tue, 24 Nov 2015 16:39:00 -0800

Free-agent C Geovany Soto (White Sox) agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Tuesday, Nov. 24. Financial terms of the deal weren't disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Soto was more or less a backup catcher in Chicago last year when he hit just .219 (41-for-187) with nine home runs and 21 RBI. He'll probably fill a similar role with the Halos behind Carlos Perez next year. The move to a more pitcher-friendly environment does nothing to boost Soto's already weak fantasy value. He's nothing more than a desperation second catcher in the deepest of formats.

White Sox | Adam LaRoche, Tyler Flowers out

Tue, 29 Sep 2015 14:31:59 -0700

Chicago White Sox 1B Adam LaRoche and C Tyler Flowers are not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Sept. 29. OF Trayce Thompson is starting in left field and hitting cleanup against Kansas City Royals SP Johnny Cueto, while C Geovany Soto is doing the catching and batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: The rookie Thompson ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has intriguing upside but is batting only .214 (15-for-70) with three home runs and nine RBI in September. He's a sleeper pick this evening against Cueto if you're feeling lucky. Soto ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is hitting .222 (41-for-185) on the year and is even more of a gamble in daily leagues.

White Sox | Tyler Flowers on the bench

Wed, 23 Sep 2015 09:16:00 -0700

Chicago White Sox C Tyler Flowers is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 23. C Geovany Soto is starting and hitting ninth against Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander.

Fantasy Tip: Soto ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is a backup catcher to avoid on FantasyScore on a day with a full slate of games. Soto is also facing a pitcher in Verlander that has really looked good of late now that he is fully healthy.

White Sox | Tyler Flowers resting for Game 1

Mon, 21 Sep 2015 09:09:47 -0700

Chicago White Sox C Tyler Flowers is not in the starting lineup for Game 1 of a doubleheader against the Detroit Tigers Monday, Sept. 21. C Geovany Soto is behind the plate and is batting seventh against Detroit Tigers SP Kyle Ryan.

Fantasy Tip: Soto ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is a very mediocre option as a backup catcher on FantasyScore if you're looking for a little salary cap relief on a day with fewer games. He's batting just .230 (41-for-178) on the year but does have nine home runs and 21 RBI.

White Sox | Adam LaRoche still sidelined

Thu, 17 Sep 2015 09:21:06 -0700

Chicago White Sox 1B Adam LaRoche (knee) remains out of the lineup Thursday, Sept. 17. C Geovany Soto is serving as the designated hitter and batting fifth, while 3B Mike Olt receives the start at first base and is hitting sixth against Oakland Athletics SP Sean Nolin.

Fantasy Tip: Soto ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) mainly is a source of cap relief at the catching position, but he does have some power with nine home runs this year and is facing a weak pitcher. Olt ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) has plenty of power to spare but has struggled to make contact at the major league level. He's a deep sleeper pick.

White Sox | Tyler Flowers receiving a breather

Tue, 15 Sep 2015 14:58:25 -0700

Chicago White Sox C Tyler Flowers is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Sept. 15. C Geovany Soto is catching and is hitting ninth against Oakland Athletics SP Aaron Brooks.

Fantasy Tip: Soto ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) could be a sneaky pick at catcher if you're looking to save some money in daily formats. However, his daily upside is limited while hitting ninth.

White Sox | Tyler Flowers out Thursday

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 09:17:22 -0700

Chicago White Sox C Tyler Flowers is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Sept. 3. C Geovany Soto is starting and is hitting seventh against Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson.

Fantasy Tip: On a day with very few games to choose from on FantasyScore and when many starting catchers could be rested, you could certainly do worse than Soto ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) as your starting catcher.

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 14:19:35 -0700

Chicago White Sox C Geovany Soto is batting sixth as the designated hitter against Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone Wednesday, Sept. 2. 1B Adam LaRoche is not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Soto ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has been opportunistic against lefties with a .325/.400/.575 slash line through 45 plate appearances this season. He stands as a potential value play at FantasyScore Wednesday.

Chicago White Sox C Geovany Soto is starting behind the plate and batting sixth against Seattle Mariners SP Edgar Olmos Sunday, Aug. 30. C Tyler Flowers is not in the starting lineup Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Soto ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has been a beast against southpaws this season with a .351/.429/.622 slash line over 42 plate appearances. He stands as a potential budget play for FantasyScore players Sunday.

White Sox | Tyler Flowers receives night off

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 15:54:07 -0700

Chicago White Sox C Tyler Flowers is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 25. C Geovany Soto is starting behind the plate and batting seventh against Boston Red Sox SP Wade Miley Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Flowers ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has really struggled down the stretch with a .205/.263/.273 slash line in the second half. He should be avoided everywhere but cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. Soto ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) owns a .324/.410/.618 line over 39 plate appearances against lefties this season, and he checks out as a potential value play at FantasyScore Tuesday.
