Recovering Soto likely to see action Saturday
MESA, Ariz. -- Cubs catcher Geovany Soto was able to catch on Sunday, and if he continues to progress, he should see his first game action this Saturday.

Cubs manager Dale Sveum said Soto did everything on Sunday but run 100 percent.

"Everything's going well," Sveum said Monday. "He'll probably be ready to go by [Wednesday], but we'll put him through a few more tests. Everything's going good, he's not feeling anything now in anything he does. That's a good thing. Sometimes groin [injuries] can hang on for a long time."

Soto is the Cubs' regular catcher and his being sidelined has given the team a chance to look at the candidates for backup, which include Welington Castillo, Steve Clevenger and Jason Jaramillo.
