Nieto was born in Cuba, but raised in Florida. He attended American Heritage High School in Plantation, Florida. He played for the school's baseball team as a catcher. After Nieto graduated, the Washington Nationals selected him in the fifth round of the 2008 Major League Baseball (MLB) Draft. He signed with the Nationals, receiving a $376,000 signing bonus, roughly twice as much as MLB suggested he should receive based on his draft position.

Nieto struggled in his early career. In 2011, he was suspended for 50 games for violating the league's performance-enhancing drug policy after testing positive for an anabolic steroid.

After the 2013 season, the Chicago White Sox selected Nieto with the third pick in the Rule 5 Draft. Because Nieto was a Rule 5 Draft pick, he had to be on the Chicago White Sox roster for the entire season, so for 2014, he was the backup to Tyler Flowers. Nieto spent the 2015 season in the minor leagues, and was released after the season.
