Geovany Soto injury: Soto out 10-12 weeks with knee surgery

Geovany Soto will be out 10-12 weeks after knee surgery, and Engel Beltre has a fractured right tibia.

Geovany Soto injury:  More bad news, as Texas Rangers starting catcher Geovany Soto is undergoing surgery for a torn right meniscus in his right knee, and will miss the next 10-12 weeks.

In the same T.R. Sullivan piece linked above, it is mentioned that Engel Beltre has a fractured right tibia, and will start the season on the disabled list.

The injury to Soto means that the Rangers will be rolling with their #2 and #3 catchers, J.P. Arencibia and Robinson Chirinos, to start the season.  Sullivan says that the Rangers are looking for additional catching depth, which makes sense, since they are currently about one injury away from Pat Cantwell being on the 25 man roster.

Soto and Beltre being hurt, together with Jurickson Profar being out for 10-12 weeks, means that three of the thirteen position players expected to be on the Opening Day roster are going to start the year on the d.l., and likely spend significant time on the d.l.
