(Source) The Texas Rangers‘ disappointing season took another hit this week when injured catcher Geovany Soto was arrested on misdemeanor marijuana charges.

Soto, was stopped for speeding at 10 p.m. Wednesday in Grapevine, Tx., and that’s when officers discovered marijuana in his car. Soto had less than two ounces, according to the Dallas Morning News, and was accordingly charged with a misdemeanor. Authorities said Soto was cooperative. He was later released on $500 bail.

 Soto and the Rangers both released statements Friday.  “I was stopped by Grapevine Police on Wednesday night. I am embarrassed and would like to apologize to my family, the Rangers organization, and our fans that I was taken in on this charge,” Soto said in a written statement. “Because this is an ongoing case, I cannot discuss this matter any further at this time.”

4. Geovany Soto, I’ll never forget the time you hit 2 three run homers in an early season game against the Brewers in 2008 and we all were like whoa, this guy is the greatest catcher of all time. Then you made the Hall of Fame in 2008, then you became what you are, an average catcher, below average hitter and a guy who gets stopped for weed in Texas. Fun times though. Thanks for the memories.






At one point in time I owned a pretty sweet Soto Shirsey. Popped the sleeves off that bad boy and everything. No regrets.
