The White Sox acquired infielder Neftali Soto from the Reds on Monday for cash considerations, per CSN Chicago's Dan Hayes. Soto has appeared in 34 games for the Reds over the past two seasons. He hit .286 in seven spring at bats this year.
The Reds made their first round of spring cuts Tuesday, optioning outfielder Juan Duran to Double-A Pensacola and outfielder Yorman Rodriguez to Triple-A Louisville. The team also re-assigned eight players to minor league camp, including infielder Neftali Soto, outfielders Ryan LaMarre and Jesse Winker and pitchers Jonathon Crawford, Ismael Guillon, Nick Howard, Robert Stephenson and Nick Travieso.
The Reds have outrighted infielder Neftali Soto to Triple-A Wednesday. The move frees up a spot on the team's 40-man roster. Soto received just 30 at-bats in the majors. He hit .100.
Reds outfielder Skip Schumaker (concussion) was activated off the 7-day disabled list Sunday. Catcher Neftali Soto was optioned to Triple-A Louisville to clear a roster spot.
The Reds have promoted outfielder Donald Lutz from Triple-A Louisville and dispatched infielder Neftali Soto to the same team. Lutz made his major league debut in 2014 and managed a stat line of .241/.254/.310.
