Chicago White Sox Sign Veteran Workhorse Reliever

An intriguing addition by the Chicago White Sox.

The Chicago White Sox have signed right-handed pitcher Bryan Shaw to a minor league contract with an invite to spring training. Shaw, who ranks fifth among active pitchers with 753 career appearances, brings a wealth of experience to the table.

He logged an MLB-leading 81 relief appearances for Cleveland in 2021, but struggled in his final season with the Cleveland Guardians.

Despite appearing in 60 games and tallying 58.1 innings, Shaw posted a disappointing 5.40 ERA, 1.44 WHIP, and 52 strikeouts.

Cleveland subsequently removed him from their 40-man roster in the final week of the regular season.

The thirty-five-year-old will have to impress during spring training if he hopes to make the White Sox bullpen for Opening Day.

Over his 12-year career, Shaw holds a 3.92 ERA, 1.34 WHIP, with 637 strikeouts across 714.2 innings. Photo Credit: Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports
