The Chicago White Sox acquired minor league right-hander Thyago Vieira from the Seattle Mariners in exchange for international signing bonus pool money, the teams announced Thursday.

Vieira also made one appearance with the Mariners last season, retiring all three batters faced in his major league debut versus the Baltimore Orioles on Aug. 14. The 24-year-old became the fifth native of Brazil to play in the majors, joining Yan Gomes, Andre Rienzo, Paulo Orlando and Luiz Gohara.

The 6-foot-2, 210-pound Vieira posted a 2-4 mark with four saves and a 4.00 ERA in 41 appearances between Double-A Arkansas and Triple-A Tacoma in 2017. He limited right-handers to a .194 batting average and tossed two-thirds of a scoreless inning for the World Team at the All-Star Futures Game in Miami.
