According to Tim Brown, national baseball writer for Yahoo! Sports, the Texas Rangers have acquired catcher Geovany Soto from the Chicago Cubs. The Cubs had been looking to unload Soto before the July 31st trade deadline:

For his career, Soto has a batting average of .252 with an OBP of .341 and a SLG of .445. He has also hit 77 home runs in his career and has 264 RBI's.

The Rangers traded minor-league pitcher Jacob Brigham for Soto.
