      Rangers put C Soto on DL, activate RHP Martinez


      Texas Rangers catcher Geovany Soto has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right groin, less than a week after he returned from right knee surgery.


      It's the latest disheartening injury for the Rangers in a dreadful season full of them. Soto got hurt running the bases Monday night and left a 4-2 victory over the Yankees.


      The move opened a roster spot for right-hander Nick Martinez, reinstated from the disabled list to start Tuesday night against New York. Martinez was injured taking batting practice and had been sidelined since July 2 with discomfort on his left side.


      Soto had surgery in March and was not activated until last Thursday during the All-Star break. He started three games behind the plate and was 4 for 11 (.364) with a double and an RBI.
