Geovany Soto lasted three games before going back on the disabled list

At this point the Rangers’ injury situation is absurd.

After missing the first two-plus months of the season following spring training knee surgery catcher Geovany Soto finally came off the disabled list last week, rejoined the Rangers’ lineup … and lasted all of three games before going back on the shelf.

Soto has been placed on the DL with a strained right groin muscle, which he injured Monday while running the bases and scoring a run.

Presumably the Rangers will turn back to Robinson Chirinos again as their primary catcher and perhaps use J.P. Arencibia behind the plate as well after misguidedly thinking he could be a decent first baseman.
