Manager Ron Washington refuses to anoint Geovany Soto as Yu Darvish's personal catcher, but they are together again Tuesday as against the Astros. The statistical differences between Soto and A.J. Pierzynski with Pierzynski are minimal, but Soto has been throwing to Darvish since he shooshed away Pierzynski as he came to the mound Sept. 4 at Oakland. "This is Soto's chance to play," Washington said.
