Bruce Levine of 670 The Score reports that catcher Geovany Soto has signed with the White Sox on a minor league contract. According to Levine, Soto has a “great shot” once the White Sox configure their 40-man roster.

Soto, who turns 34 years old later this month, was limited to just 26 games with the Angels this past season. When he was in the lineup, he was productive, hitting .269/.321/.487 with four home runs and nine RBI in 86 plate appearances.

The White Sox don’t have great catching depth as Omar Navaez and Kevan Smith are No.1 and 2, respectively, on the club’s depth chart.
