Infielder Neftali Soto has been traded from the Cincinanti Reds to the Chicago White Sox for cash considerations.
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.
