Prior to tonight's game at Cleveland, the Chicago White Sox placed catcher Geovany Soto on the 10-day disabled list (retroactive to April 12) with right elbow inflammation and purchased the contract of catcher Kevan Smith from Class AAA Charlotte.
 
Smith, 28, is hitting .438 (7-16) with two doubles, nine RBI, four runs scored and three walks over his first four games with Charlotte this season. The nine RBI are tied for the second-most in the International League. He batted .343 (12-35) with two doubles, one homer and four RBI over 16 Cactus League games this spring. Smith, who spent most of 2016 with the Knights, appeared in seven games with the White Sox after making his major-league debut in September.
 
Soto is 4-15 (.267) with three home runs, five RBI and three runs scored over five games this season, his second with the White Sox (also 2015). His three home runs are tied for the fifth-most in the American League. Soto hit three homers over the club's first four games, becoming just the sixth White Sox to accomplish the feat. He signed with Chicago as a minor-league free agent on January 10.
 
Following the moves, the White Sox 40-man roster increases to 40.
