CLEVELAND — The Chicago White Sox have placed catcher Geovany Soto on the 10-day disabled list because of an inflamed right elbow. They purchased the contract of catcher Kevan Smith from Triple-A Charlotte.
Soto is batting .267 with three home runs and five RBIs in five games. He was a late scratch from Wednesday's lineup. He signed a minor league contract with the White Sox in January after playing in only 26 games last season with the Los Angeles Angels because of knee injuries.
