6/18 Soto activated

Geovany Soto was activated from the 15-day disabled list Monday and Welington Castillo optioned to Triple-A Iowa. Soto has been sidelined since mid May after undergoing arthroscopic surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee.

“I had a good week down there and was in plenty of games,” said Soto, who was 3-for-16 (.188) in five games with two doubles.

Soto was batting .161 when he was sidelined with the knee injury, which he felt May 16.

“I had a lot of at-bats [in Iowa] and tried to find myself and I think we’re on the right track,” Soto said.

The Cubs had talked about keeping three catchers, but decided Castillo needs regular at-bats to develop. Steve Clevenger is the backup catcher, although he started at first base on Monday.
