God Relents: Soto is Back, But Who Goes Out?

Chicago Cubs catcher Geovany Soto finally returns today from a strained oblique, an injury that’s had him out for the better part of a month. Soto, who had just started to hit when he went down with the injury, had a successful rehab stint in the minors. The Cubs hope he’ll bring his big boy […]

God’s Wrathwatch: Geovany Soto Could Be Back As Soon As Wednesday

Chicago Cubs catcher Geovany Soto has been out for, well, a long time with a strained oblique. Fortunately, he’s been rehabbing successfully (he went 1-2 in a rehab outing last night for the Cubs’ AA affiliate in Tennessee), and he might be back sooner than expected. “Wednesday wouldn’t be soon enough for me,” [manager Lou] […]

God’s Wrathwatch: Soto is Rehabbin’

So much freaking wrath this week. On the brighter side, Geovany Soto (strained oblique) is getting closer to being back with the Cubs. He started his rehab assignment yesterday with the Mesa Cubs of the AZL, DH’d, and went 1 for 3. As for the rest of his rehab stint: Geovany Soto will begin a […]

God’s Wrathwatch: Geovany Soto Could be Back Next Week

Chicago Cubs catcher Geovany Soto has been out for a couple weeks now with a strained oblique muscle, but he is recovering normally.

Lilly, Dempster, Soto Injury Updates

The Chicago Cubs have so many players recovering from injuries, it is, at times, difficult to keep them all straight. For example, what the hell happened to Aaron Miles? Don’t get me wrong – I’m not exactly pushing for his return. But, like, did he break his femur or something? For now, we’ve got updates […]

God’s Wrathwatch: Geovany Soto Hoping to Be Out Only Two or Three Weeks

Though when Chicago Cubs catcher Geovany Soto was first placed on the disabled list late last week, the word was not good: out one month, minimum. But Soto, currently rehabbing in Arizona, is hoping he can be back much sooner. “We’re going to attack [the injury] quickly and see where we’re at,” Soto said earlier […]

Sam Fuld Back to Chicago to Replace Soto

Sam Fuld is heading back to Chicago to take Geovany Soto’s place on the roster once he’s DL’d. Fuld was more than adequate in a brief stint a couple weeks ago, and with Alfonso Soriano and Milton Bradley continuing to struggle, Fuld could actually see some at bats this time around. Then again, he may […]

Sorry Steve Clevenger and Chris Robinson, But the Cubs Think You Suck

When starting catcher Geovany Soto went down this week with an oblique injury, the Chicago Cubs had to scramble for a back-up catcher.

God’s Wrathwatch: Soto Might Be Going to the DL

The Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh away. Or in the case of the Chicago Cubs, He just taketh away.

The team had long awaited the return of third baseman Aramis Ramirez (and […]

Geovany Soto Smoked Some Pot

At the World Baseball Class, Geovany Soto tested positive … wait for it … for marijuana. Duuuude. The good news is that he won’t be suspended by MLB, though he’s been booted from international competition for two years. Additional bad news includes an increasingly diminished supply of Ho-Hos and Funyuns on the North Side. “I […]

Cubs Stick With Absurd Number of Pitchers For Now

When Rich Harden returned from the disabled list this weekend, the Chicago Cubs sent down an infielder, despite the fact that the team already had 12 pitchers (more than the typical 11). Well, it wasn’t a completely temporary thing. Lou Piniella says it’s going to stay that way for a little while. ”The big reason […]

Cubs Place Zambrano on Disabled List, I Place Hot Poker in My Ear

It is barely May, and the Chicago Cubs have already seen Derrek Lee, Aramis Ramirez, Milton Bradley, Geovany Soto, and now Carlos Zambrano miss significant time. It’s a g-d miracle this team is above .500. Carlos Zambrano was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a Grade 2 left hamstring strain. Infielder Bobby Scales was […]
