GEOVANY SOTO NEWS

What’s On the Angels Grocery List?

Left Field Embed from Getty Images The Los Angeles Angels are notorious for their outfield, primarily for one reason. Mike Trout is the best outfielder in Major League Baseball and Kole Calhoun is a great compliment to him in right field.  Left field is where the Angels fall off the map a bit, as their players out there are anything but dependable.  Efren Navorro isn’t...

FREE AGENT ALERT: Angels sign Geovany Soto

The Angels decided to get one final piece of business done Tuesday afternoon before breaking for the holiday weekend, signing veteran backstop Geovany Soto to a one-year, $2.8 million contract. The 32-year-old can’t be a platoon partner with Carlos Perez—they both hit from the right side—so he’ll likely fill the more traditional role of back-up catcher, stepping in when/if...

How the Cardinals Could Fix their Bench in 2016

Part 1 of this article looked in depth at the St. Louis Cardinals bench in 2015 and how its low usage seemed to have contributed to what manager Mike Matheny admitted may have been “overuse” of key players. Here in Part 2, I offer my thoughts on how the Cardinals might build a stronger bench in 2016. In the recent past, the club has economized on reserve positions and the bullpen...

On Derek Norris’ Surprising Strength

Last year Derek Norris didn’t look much like the kind of catcher who was going to stick at the position for a long time. In 2014, among catchers with at least 700 innings behind the dish, Norris’ caught stealing percentage of 16.7 ranked ahead of only Colorado’s Wilin Rosario. It got so bad — apparently —  that Norris ceded the A’s everyday catcher role to backup Geovany...

They out-hit the White...

The Chicago White Sox Have The Most Pathetic Catchers In MLB
