White Sox agree to terms with minor-league free agent pitchers

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The White Sox agreed to terms with free agent left-handers Donnie Veal and Jose Quintana.

Veal, a 27-year-old second-round draft pick by the Cubs in 2005, pitched at four levels in the Pittsburgh Pirates farm system in 2011, combining to go 0-2 with a 4.22 ERA with 31 strikeouts over 32 innings. He had Tommy John surgery performed on June 4, 2010.

Quintana, 22, was 10-2 with a 2.91 ERA over 102 innings for Class A Tampa in the New York Yankees system this season, limiting opponents to a .236 average. Over five minor league seasons with the Mets and Yankees, Quintana is 18-8 with a 2.76 ERA.

Quintana's fastball is in the 89-91 mph range. He also throws a curveball and changeup, and according to one scouting report, "throws with some deception.'' He struck out 88 last season.

The Sox last week re-signed corner infielder Dallas McPherson, who played most of this past season at AAA Charlotte.
