The White Sox are bringing back Geovany Soto, who shared the team’s catching duties with Tyler Flowers in 2015, on a minor league deal, a major league source confirmed.

The Sox unsuccessfully tried patching up the position with a new platoon of Alex Avila and Dioner Navarro last season. Injuries to both gave rookie Omar Narvaez an opportunity to appear in 34 games and Narvaez, who bats left, batted .267 with one homer.

Soto, who turns 34 on Jan. 20, had health issues of his own last season, appearing in only 26 games for the Angels due to knee injuries. Soto tore the meniscus in his right knee in May and returned to the disabled list in August with problems in his left knee. When he played, Soto produced a .269/.321/.487 slash line with four homers.
