We’ll track the day’s minor moves in this post. For starters:
- The Nationals have signed corner infielder Neftali Soto, according to Matt Eddy of Baseball America. Soon to turn 27, Soto has spent most of his professional time with the Reds, with whom he reached the majors briefly in 2013-14. He was acquired by the White Sox last year and ultimately spent the season at Triple-A, putting up a .246/.343/.307 slash and just two home runs in 231 plate appearances. Soto has shown more in the past, especially in the power department — he hit 30 homers in 414 Double-A plate appearances back in 2011 — though it’s been a while since he had sustained success in the upper minors.
