Chicago White Sox Sign 9-Year Veteran Pitcher

The Chicago White Sox recently made a move by signing pitcher José Ureña to a minor league deal, and he has been designated to play for their Triple-A team in Charlotte.

Ureña's journey took a turn after his release from a similar contract with the Washington Nationals due to a less-than-stellar performance during the current season.

Despite these struggles, the White Sox are banking on Ureña's veteran nine-year MLB experience, recognizing the value he could bring to their minor league system.

Starting the season with the Colorado Rockies, Ureña encountered difficulties, conceding 22 runs across just five starts spanning 18.1 innings.

His recent track record has been marked by inconsistency, yet the White Sox view his depth and seasoned background as assets to help navigate the remaining part of the season.

Over his nine-year career, the 31-year-old has compiled a 4.92 ERA, 1.42 WHIP, with 545 strikeouts across 813 innings and 194 appearances. Photo Credit: Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports
