CHICAGO -- The Chicago White Sox made two minor moves Sunday in preparation for the start of the season, signing reliever Mitchell Boggs to a minor league deal and trading right-hander Omar Poveda to the Washington Nationals for cash considerations.

Boggs was signed by the White Sox to a one-year, $1.1 million deal this offseason but struggled in spring training and was released. He is back in the fold, and expected to be headed to Triple-A Charlotte, but the White Sox did not make that official.

Poveda was signed as a free agent by the White Sox in December. Prior to that, the 26-year-old right-hander pitched in the Atlanta Braves organization. He made just two Cactus League appearances with the White Sox this spring, posting a 15.00 ERA over three innings.
