Sox make 40-man roster moves, decline option on Soto
CHICAGO — The Chicago White Sox say they have declined their option for next season on catcher Geovany Soto, making him a free agent.
The NL Rookie of the Year with the Cubs in 2008, he agreed to a minor league contract with the White Sox in January. The 34-year-old Soto missed most of last season because of a right elbow injury that required surgery and batted .190 in 13 games.
The team announced the moves on Thursday.
