Soto Still the No. 1 catcher

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Manager Dale Sveum has liked everything he's seen from rookie catcher Steve Clevenger. But veteran Geovany Soto is still the Cubs main catcher, Sveum said.
``I don't think it's platooning,'' he said of Clevenger hitting against some right-handed pitchers. ``Soto will catch 60 to 70 percent of the time. Clevenger [a left-handed hitter] will get his at bats, but Soto will play more.''
Soto was in the lineup Saturday against Houston left-hander J. A. Happ. Soto, who missed time because of left knee arthroscopic surgery, entered the game hitting .160 with five home runs and 9 RBI.
