KODAK, Tenn. – The Tennessee Smokies, Class AA minor league affiliate of the Chicago Cubs, announce today that INF Dustin Harrington will join the team in advance of today’s game against the Jackson Generals.  In a corresponding roster move, INF Elliot Soto has been sent to the Class High-A Daytona Cubs.  Both moves are immediate, with Harrington being available for the team’s 7:15 p.m. game at Smokies Park.

Tennessee’s roster is at 25 active players, which is the Southern League maximum.

Harrington, 23, joins the Smokies for the first time in his professional career.  In 42 games with the D-Cubs in 2012, he was batting .198 (24-for-121) with four doubles, three triples and eight RBIs.  The right-handed infielder was drafted by the Cubs in the 34th round of the 2010 MLB Draft out of East Carolina State University.

Soto, 22, held a .215 batting average (42-for-195) with five doubles, four triples and 12 RBIs in 73 games with the Smokies in 2012.  The Elgin, Ill. native was drafted in the 15th round of the 2010 MLB First-Year Player Draft.
