Chicago White Sox Sign Six-Year Veteran Pitcher

The Chicago White Sox have signed right-handed pitcher Luke Farrell to a minor-league contract after being a free agent since the conclusion of the 2022 season.

Despite his mediocre performance in the big leagues, the White Sox see potential in him and plan to send him to their spring training complex in Arizona to help him get back into playing shape.

Farrell is then expected to join the White Sox's Triple-A affiliate, the Charlotte Knights, where he could take on a versatile role as both a starter and reliever.

Farrell has pitched in 69 major league games since 2017, with seven of those being starts.

During the 2022 season, he made six appearances (two starts) for both the Chicago Cubs and Cincinnati Reds, pitching a total of 15 innings with a 5.40 ERA and 1.67 WHIP. Nevertheless, Farrell brings his veteran experience to the team at Triple-A Charlotte, providing extra relief depth.

For his six-year career, the 31-year-old holds an even 5.00 ERA, 1.49 WHIP, with 107 strikeouts across 102.2 innings and 69 appearances. Photo Credit: Kareem Elgazzar/The Enquirer / USA TODAY NETWORK
