8/7 Soto update

Geovany Soto was not available Saturday because of a mild ligament sprain in his right shoulder.
Soto’s shoulder bothers him when he’s hitting, not throwing. He was not expected back in the Cubs lineup until Monday at the earliest.

“We were down to one catcher, Soto wasn’t available,” Lou Piniella said after Saturday’s 4-3 loss to the Reds. “We couldn’t even pinch-run for our catcher when we bunted. We had chances in the ninth with the middle part of the lineup and didn’t get it done.”

Koyie Hill caught Saturday and will be behind the plate Sunday as well.Also, expect to see Xavier Nady in right field against lefty Travis Wood.
