White Sox acquired C Brett Hayes from the Diamondbacks for cash considerations; assigned him to Triple-A Charlotte.

Hayes has yet to see an at-bat in the majors this season, and in 164 at-bats last year at Triple-A the 32-year-old backstop batted just .189/.221/.268. Consider this a depth move and nothing more.

Hayes took just 32 at-bats at the major league level in 2015 and he slashed .189/.221/.268 in 164 at-bats at Triple-A Columbus. This is nothing more than an organizational depth move for the Snakes.

The Indians will call up Brett Hayes before Tuesday's game.

That means Carlos Santana will serve as the backup catcher for only one day, so you can forget him adding eligibility there in fantasy leagues. Hayes will back up Roberto Perez while Yan Gomes (knee) is out.

Brett Hayes went 0-for-3 while filling in for Salvador Perez on Wednesday and is 0-for-22 as the Royals' backup catcher this season.

The Royals let George Kottaras go and decided to save money by keeping Hayes as their backup, figuring he'd play less than any other backup in the league. That'd be for the best, since he really is a brutal hitter. He's at .207 with nine homers and a 124/21 K/BB ratio in 372 career at-bats.
