White Sox claim lefty Soto off waivers from A's

The White Sox claimed left-hander Giovanni Soto off waivers from the A's on Monday. Soto, 25, was previously claimed by Oakland on Oct. 26 from the Cubs.

Soto began the 2016 season with Cleveland before being traded to Chicago on April 11 for cash considerations. He was 1-3 with a 5.14 ERA in 33 relief appearances at Triple-A Iowa, striking out 55 and walking 31 in 49 innings.

Soto has a 3.29 ERA in 200 Minor League games (64 starts). He appeared in six Major League games with the Indians in 2015, tossing 3 1/3 scoreless innings.
