White Sox sent C Adrian Nieto outright to Double-A Birmingham.

The move clears him from the 40-man roster. The former Rule 5 draft pick appeared in 48 games with the White Sox in 2014, but he played exclusively in Double-A this season while batting .207/.344/.316 over 81 games.

White Sox optioned C Adrian Nieto to Triple-A Charlotte.

The White Sox kept Nieto on their active roster all of last season after taking him from the Nationals in the Rule 5 Draft, so they are now able to send him down to the minors. Tyler Flowers and Geovany Soto are likely to split catching duties with the big club.

Adrian Nieto went 3-for-3 and drove in both White Sox runs Sunday against the Astros.

Nieto hasn't played as much as expected with Tyler Flowers off to a nice start, but he's done well in his limited opportunities, going 11-for-34. We wouldn't expect him to keep it up if his role expands.

Adrian Nieto has been told he'll make the White Sox' Opening Day roster.

The news comes courtesy of Nieto's agent, Joshua Kusnick. Nieto, who will be making the jump from High-A, has batted just .250/.318/.350 over 13 games this spring but has impressed the White Sox with his defense. He'll back up Tyler Flowers, with Josh Phegley likely heading to Triple-A.

White Sox prospect C Adrian Nieto was 2-for-2 with two RBI and walk on Sunday against the Rangers.

The White Sox selected Nieto from the Nationals in December's Rule 5 draft, so he'll have to stick on the team's 25-man roster to avoid being returned to the Nationals. Prior to Sunday's game, the 24-year-old switch-hitter had gone 1-for-10 and received minimal playing time. However, the organization is likely to give him more looks moving forward with a need to start trimming its potential Opening Day roster. In 2013, Nieto batted .285/.373/.449 with 68 runs, 11 home runs and 53 RBI in 110 games at High-A Potomac. Keep in mind he'll be making the rare jump from High-A to the major leagues should he break camp with the White Sox.

White Sox selected C Adrian Nieto from the Nationals in the 2013 Rule 5 draft.

Say hello to your new backup catcher, Chicago. The 24-year-old Cuban hit .285 with 68 runs, 53 RBI and 11 homers across 110 games for High Class-A Potomac in 2013. That would seem to suggest that he isn't close to the majors -- "Talked to scouts who saw him in [the] Carolina League, thought of him as [an] iffy MLBer," tweeted Baseball America's JJ Cooper -- but Nieto opened eyes in the Arizona Fall League, hitting .271 with six RBI in 13 games. His addition is bad news for Tyler Flowers.
