SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Texas Rangers catcher Geovany Soto has a tear in his right knee that will sideline him for 10 to 12 weeks.

The Rangers said Monday that Soto will have surgery on Wednesday to repair a torn cartilage.

Soto's knee locked up Sunday and he left the game in the second inning against San Diego.

This is the second severe injury to a Rangers starter in 24 hours. The club announced Sunday that second baseman Jurickson Profar would miss at least 10 weeks with a torn muscle in his right shoulder.

"We've lost two everyday players and there is no way to sugarcoat that," Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said Monday. "It is what it is. We'll look towards our depth and see where we go from here."
