  • Reds' Livan Soto: Claimed by Cincy

    The Reds claimed Soto off waivers and optioned him to Triple-A Louisville on Friday.

    The 23-year-old was designated for assignment by Baltimore earlier in the week and will now join his third team of 2024. Soto has 10 appearances at the Triple-A level this season and has a .780 OPS in 32 at-bats.

  • Orioles' Livan Soto: DFA'd by O's

    The Orioles designated Soto for assignment Tuesday.

    Soto has now been designated for assignment four times since the beginning of February -- twice by both the Orioles and Angels. He'll go through the waiver process and could perhaps draw interest from the Halos again, or another organization may be willing to take a chance on the 23-year-old infielder.

  • Orioles' Livan Soto: Back in Baltimore

    The Orioles claimed Soto off waivers from the Angels on Thursday and optioned him to Triple-A Norfolk.

    Since early February, Soto has gone from the Angels to the Orioles, back to the Angels and then back to the Orioles via the waiver process. Soto has managed a .375/.414/.531 batting line in 71 career plate appearances, but his .244/.339/.331 line from the minors is a better representation of his talent level. The 23-year-old will provide organizational infield depth for Baltimore.

  • Angels' Livan Soto: DFA'd by Angels

    The Angels designated Soto for assignment Monday.

    Soto was claimed off waivers by the Angels on Feb. 18 after being DFA'd by the Orioles two days prior. He was then optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake towards the end of spring training, where he has slashed .214/.324/.286 with two doubles, three RBI and one stolen base over 35 plate appearances. Should Soto clear waivers, he'll look to catch onto another organization in need of a left-handed bat and infield depth.

  • Angels' Livan Soto: Sent to minor-league camp

    The Angels optioned Soto to minor-league camp Friday.

    Soto was briefly off the Angels' 40-man roster this offseason and never had a realistic chance of making the Opening Day roster. He had a .736 OPS in 79 games at Triple-A Salt Lake last season and will likely return to the affiliate to begin 2024.

  • Angels' Livan Soto: Returns to Halos

    Soto was claimed off waivers by the Angels on Sunday.

    The 23-year-old was designated for assignment by the Orioles on Friday and will now return to the Angels, who also designated him for assignment in early February. Soto is now back on the Halos' 40-man roster and will provide middle-infield depth.

  • Orioles' Livan Soto: DFA'd by Baltimore

    Soto was designated for assignment by Baltimore on Friday.

    Soto was claimed off waivers from the Angels last week but didn't stick on the Orioles' 40-man roster for long. The 23-year-old appeared in four big-league games last season and had a .700 OPS over 477 plate appearances at Triple-A.

  • Orioles' Livan Soto: Claimed by O's

    The Orioles claimed Soto off waivers from the Angels on Thursday, Daniel Alvarez-Montes of ElExtraBase.com reports.

    Soto was DFA'd by Los Angeles on Saturday, and he'll now head across the country to fill the opening on Baltimore's 40-man roster. The 23-year-old infielder slashed .237/.342/.358 across 477 plate appearances in the minors last season, and his ability to play multiple infield positions could increase his chances at seeing MLB action this year.

  • Angels' Livan Soto: Departs 40-man roster

    Soto was designated for assignment by the Angels on Saturday, Taylor Blake Ward of The Sporting Tribune reports.

    Soto has managed a .946 OPS over 71 plate appearances at the major-league level, but a .670 OPS in the minors is closer to his real ability. The 23-year-old offers a solid glove at multiple infield positions, so it's possible he'll draw some interest on waivers.

  • Angels' Livan Soto: Optioned to Double-A

    The Angels optioned Soto to Double-A Rocket City on Tuesday.

    Anthony Rendon (groin) has been activated from the injured list in a corresponding move. Soto, 22, went 2-for-9 with three walks and two strikeouts during his nearly three-week stay on the major-league roster.

  • Angels' Livan Soto: Promoted from Double-A

    The Angels recalled Soto from Double-A Rocket City on Monday.

    As anticipated, the Angels placed third baseman Anthony Rendon (groin) on the 10-day injured list to facilitate Soto's first promotion of the 2023 season. Soto received a late-season call-up to the big leagues in 2022 and delivered a .400/.414/.582 slash line in 59 plate appearances, but that level of performance stands out as a major outlier compared to every other stop he's made in the minors. He's mustered a pedestrian .566 OPS over 17 games at Rocket City this season and will likely have to settle for limited use in a utility role while he's up with the Angels.

  • Angels' Livan Soto: Getting call-up Monday

    The Angels plan to call up Soto from Double-A Rocket City on Monday, Daniel Alvarez-Montes of ElExtraBase.com reports.

    Soto's promotion may come as a bit of a surprise just looking at the numbers, as the 22-year-old was demoted to Double-A after hitting just .157 with Triple-A Salt Lake and he's posted just a .566 OPS since joining Rocket City. However, since he's on the 40-man roster and has the ability to play a few different infield positions, the Angels may view him as an ideal utility option while Anthony Rendon tends to a groin injury. Rendon is expected to be placed on the 10-day injured list Monday in a corresponding move.

  • Angels' Livan Soto: Demoted to Double-A

    The Angels moved Soto from Triple-A Salt Lake to Double-A Rocket City on Tuesday, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.

    The 22-year-old infielder looked to be something special during the brief time he spent in the majors last season, slashing .400/.414/.582 through 59 plate appearances. However, a slow start in Triple-A (.554 OPS) through 13 games has derailed any potential plans for Soto to rejoin the Angels anytime soon. If he's able to get things going in Double-A, there's a good chance he might get the call to return to Salt Lake relatively quickly.

  • Angels' Livan Soto: Optioned to Triple-A

    Soto was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake by the Angels on Tuesday.

    Soto comes up short in his bid to be a bench option for the Angels to begin 2023. The infielder performed well in an 18-game sample with Los Angeles last year with a .400/.414/.582 slash line over 59 plate appearances. There's a very good chance Soto will be up with the Angels before the end of 2023, but he's likely to spend just as much time -- if not more -- with Salt Lake.

  • Angels' Livan Soto: Productive from leadoff spot

    Soto went 2-for-5 with a run scored in Monday's extra-inning loss to the Athletics.

    The 22-year-old has exploded onto the scene for the Angels over the last few weeks, and he kept it going with a strong game batting out of the leadoff spot Monday. Soto's multi-hit effort was his eighth over his last 10 games, during which he is 18-for-36. Soto will likely come back to earth next season, as he sports an unsustainable BABIP north of .500, but he will be worth keeping an eye on to see if he earns regular playing time.

  • Angels' Livan Soto: Keeps hitting in win

    Soto went 3-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a run scored in Sunday's 8-3 win over the Rangers.

    Soto had a hot finish to September, and it's carried over to October with three-hit efforts in each of his last two games. He's also knocked in at least one run in five of his last seven contests. The shortstop now sports a .413 batting average with a home run, five doubles, nine RBI, seven runs scored and a stolen base through his first 50 plate appearances in the majors.

  • Angels' Livan Soto: Three-hit effort in win

    Soto went 3-for-3 with two doubles, an RBI and a run scored in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Rangers.

    Soto was part of the Angels' rally for the lead in the seventh inning, knocking a game-tying RBI double and scoring the go-ahead run on a fielder's choice. This was his sixth multi-hit effort in his last eight games, with five of his 13 hits in that span going for extra bases. The infielder is now batting .381 with a home run, a triple, four doubles, seven RBI, six runs scored and a stolen base through his first 14 major-league contests. Soto's hot hitting should help protect him from losing playing time to David Fletcher, who returned from a hand injury Thursday.

  • Angels' Livan Soto: Piling up hits

    Soto went 2-for-4 with a triple and an RBI in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Athletics.

    The 22-year-old rookie has turned in four consecutive two-hit games to lift his batting average up to .379 through his first 32 big-league plate appearances. A .500 BABIP has had a major role in propping up Soto's batting average, and his 28.1 percent strikeout rate is another data point that suggests some regression could be in the forecast. Even if that's the case, Soto should at least continue to enjoy a full-time role in the Los Angeles infield while David Fletcher (hand) remains on the injured list.

  • Angels' Livan Soto: Logs first career steal

    Soto went 2-for-5 with a double, two RBI, a run, a stolen base and a strikeout during Sunday's 10-3 win over Minnesota.

    Soto capped off a productive series in Minnesota on Sunday, as he put up a third consecutive multi-hit performance during the blowout win. He also recorded his first career stolen base in the majors in the top of the sixth inning. Over nine games since making his big-league debut, the 22-year-old has hit .346 with a home run, two doubles, five runs, four RBI and a stolen base.
