“We're going to talk about it this time,” manager Dale Sveum said. “We'll just see what happens. But we'll definitely talk about it a little more."
Soto has been out since the middle of May with a partially torn meniscus in his left knee that required an arthroscopic procedure.
A three catcher system will allow the Cubs to use Clevenger in more of a utility role on the days he isn't behind the plate. He can be more of a pinch hit option since there is another catcher available in case of emergency and he can also be used at first base in possible late-inning double switches.
Soto's minor-league rehabilitation assignment is expected to be completed by Sunday and he could join the Cubs for the start of a three-game series against the White Sox beginning Monday.
