White Sox claim outfielder Jerry Sands off waivers from Indians


The White Sox added a new piece to their roster on Wednesday by claiming outfielder Jerry Sands off waivers from the Cleveland Indians.

Sands, 29, appeared in 50 games last season for the Indians, batting .239 with four homers, 19 RBI and 11 runs scored. 

Sands also saw some time in the minors, where he hit .287 with 14 homers, 46 RBI and 41 runs scored in 66 games with Class AAA Columbus.

Sands began his career with the Los Angeles Dodgers, where he was drafted in the 25th round of the 2008 draft. He made his MLB debut in 2011. Later that season, Sands smacked his first career homer off Mark Buehrle of the White Sox.

In 2014, the outfielder spent some time with Joe Maddon's Tampa Bay Rays.

In his major league career, Sands has battled .238 adding nine homers and 50 RBI in 134.

The move pushes the White Sox's 40-man roster to 37.
