Sox sign two pitchers
This is from the Sox' Facebook page and there was no link, so here it is:
NEWS: The White Sox have agreed to terms with free agent left-handed pitchers Donnie Veal and Jose Quintana.
Veal, 27, combined to go 0-2 with a 4.22 ERA (15 ER/32.0 IP) and 31 strikeouts in 19 appearances (five starts) between Class A Bradenton, Class AA Altoona, Class AAA Indianapolis and Rookie Gulf Coast League Pirates in 2011. He did not pitch until May 22 while recovering from Tommy John surgery performed on June 4, 2010.
Quintana, 22, spent the entire 2011 season with Class A Tampa in the Yankees farm system, going 10-2 with a 2.91 ERA (33 ER/102.0 IP), one save and 88 strikeouts in 30 appearances (14 starts). He limited opponents to a .236 (86-364) average and was 6-1 with a 2.83 ERA (20 ER/63.2 IP) as a starter.
All I have to say is that there better be a Lou Gehrig or Frank Thomas quality kid available for the 2014 draft......
