DETROIT — The White Sox made a minor trade Saturday, acquiring left-hander Frank De Los Santos from Tampa Bay for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

De Los Santos, 25, went 2-2 with a 4.89 ERA and one save and 26 strikeouts in 30 games with Class AAA Durham, Class A Port Charlotte and the GCL Rookie Rays in 2013.

He brings the Sox 40-man roster to 40 but will not be added to the major-league roster.

De Los Santos has pitched in 193 games, including 85 starts, over seven seasons in the minors.

The deal was not part of the Jesse Crain trade made with the Rays in July.
