Report: White Sox sign pitcher Mike Pelfrey to minor-league deal


The White Sox added some depth to their rotation in Triple-A Charlotte.

According to FanRag Sports' Jon Heyman, the White Sox will sign veteran starting pitcher Mike Pelfrey to a minor-league deal.

After signing a two-year, $16 million deal with the Detroit Tigers during the 2015-16 offseason, Pelfrey was released by the team last week.

The White Sox become the third AL Central organization that Pelfrey has been a member of after he spent three seasons with the Minnesota Twins (2013-15) and one with the Tigers (2016). 

Pelfrey, 33, has a career record of 65-91 with a 4.57 ERA across 11 MLB seasons.

Pelfrey broke into the majors in 2006 with the New York Mets — a year after he was selected in the first round (9th overall) by the team in 2005.
