GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — Infielder Neftali Soto has been traded from the Cincinanti Reds to the Chicago White Sox.

The 26-year-old was a third-round pick in the 2007 amateur draft. He was on Cincinnati’s opening-day roster last year, then was sent to Triple-A Louisville on May 22.

Soto was called up from July 12 to July 19, made four starts and had three hits in 30 at-bats.

The Reds assigned him outright to Louisville after the season. He became a free agent and signed a minor league deal with the Reds in December.

Soto has appeared in four spring training games with the Reds, going 2 for 7.
