The Angels continue to be ravaged by injuries. MLB.com’s Alden Gonzalez reports that catcher Geovany Soto will miss the next four to six weeks after undergoing surgery to repair a torn right meniscus. The club has called up Jeff Bandy from Triple-A Salt Lake to bolster their catching corps.
Soto will be the 10th Angel concurrently on the disabled list, joining Craig Gentry, Andrew Heaney, Daniel Nava, Cliff Pennington, Cory Rasmus, Garrett Richards, Andrelton Simmons, Huston Street, and C.J. Wilson.
Soto, 33, was hitting a solid .283/.338/.483 with three home runs and seven RBI in 67 plate appearances. He was sharing catching duties with Carlos Perez. Perez will grab the lion’s share of starts now that Soto has hit the DL.
