Former Chicago Cubs catcher Geovany Soto has signed a minor-league deal on Monday along with seven other free agents to the White Sox according to a team release.

Soto was invited to the White Sox spring training as a non-roster invite.

He hit .269 with four homers, nine RBIs, and .321 on-base percentage last season with the Angels. For his career, he is a .246 hitter with 105 home runs, 352 RBIs, and an on-base percentage of .331.

Soto will be best remembered by Cubs fans winning the 2008 Rookie of the Year when he hit .285 with 23 homers and 86 RBIs. He was also named to the All-Star team in his rookie season.

He was drafted by the Cubs in the 11th round (#318th overall) of the 2001 MLB Draft.
