Geovany Soto leaves game with tight groin

Geovany Soto, recently off of the disabled list, was pulled from tonight's game with a tight groin

Texas Rangers catcher Geovany Soto was lifted from tonight's game with the New York Yankees in the sixth inning with a tight right groin muscle.

Soto suffered the injury while scoring in the midst of the team's three run sixth inning, and was replaced by Robinson Chirinos.

Soto was activated from the disabled list for the first game after the All Star Break after missing the entire first half of the season due to knee surgery.

The Rangers are already short-handed with their position players as a result of Alex Rios spraining his ankle over the weekend in Toronto.  Texas does have four catchers on their roster right now, though, so they are at least in a position to weather the absence should Soto end up having to miss time.
