MILWAUKEE -- The Brewers sent cash to the White Sox on Thursday for versatile infielder Tyler Saladino and optioned the 28-year-old to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Saladino has appeared at every position but pitcher and catcher for the White Sox over the past four seasons while hitting .231/.281/.330 with 12 home runs and 24 stolen bases in 863 career plate appearances. He made Chicago's Opening Day roster and was 2-for-8 to start the season.

To make room on their full 40-man roster, the Brewers designated well-traveled right-hander Alec Asher for assignment, two days after claiming him off waivers from the Dodgers.

Last call
• Left-handed reliever Boone Logan, on the disabled list with a strained left hamstring, threw 25 fastballs in Wednesday's successful bullpen session and reported feeling "great." He might mix in a few sliders in his next mound session this weekend.

• Fans can track progress of the Brewers' Spring Training renovation via a streaming video camera at Brewers.com/ConstructionCam, the club announced Thursday. Crews broke ground at the end of March on a $56-$60 million renovation of Maryvale Baseball Park.
