White Sox sign Scott Olsen to minor-league deal

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The White Sox signed former Florida Marlins and Washington National left-handed starter Scott Olsen to a minor league contract on Wednesday. Olsen, who is 37-49, with 4.85 ERA in his career, had shoulder problems and was released by the Pirates last May. He did not pitch for Pittsburgh.
Olsen's deal includes a big-league option for 2013 but does not include an invitation to big-league camp this spring, a Sox official said.
Olsen, 28, was a sixth-round Marlins draft pick out of Crystal Lake South High School in 2002. He made 31 or more starts for the Marlins in 2006, '07 and '08.
