Rangers’ Geovany Soto out 10-12 weeks with torn meniscus

0-162 is one step closer to reality.

More bad injury news for the Rangers: starting catcher Geovany Soto will miss 10-12 weeks with a torn lateral meniscus in his right knee. He missed time with a foot problem earlier in camp.

Geovany Soto, 31, hit .245/.328/.466 (114 OPS+) with nine doubles and nine home runs in 54 games as A.J. Pierznyski’s backup last season. Texas re-signed him to a one-year, $3.05 million contract over the winter and intended to use him as their starter behind the plate.

With Soto out, catching duties figure to fall on J.P. Arencibia and Robinson Chirinos.

I had no idea that Kinsler was Roma.

I wonder how many HRs Arencibia can hit while still being a bad player, 25?

What is the record for most HRs by a 0 WAR catcher?

20. Benjie Molina in 2009. According to B-Ref it was -0.5 WAR John Bateman was next with 10 HR in 1971 @-0.1 WAR

Adam Dunn holds the record for any position with 38 in 2009 and -0.4 WAR.

Just goes to show how undervalued HR have become, The new market inefficiency which is why Bill Beane values HR's now.

I was going to suggest Arencibia hit 21 in 2013. But he actually had 0.1 WAR. Lame.
