The Chicago White Sox have agreed to a one-year deal with pitcher Felipe Paulino, who missed most of 2012 and all of 2013 following Tommy John elbow surgery and underwent shoulder surgery two months ago, CSNChicago.com reported.
According to the report, Paulino will get $1.75 million. The White Sox have a $4 million option or $250,000 buyout for 2015.
The White Sox are taking a bit of risk with the 30-year-old Paulino, who has not pitched since 2012. But in his seven starts for the Kansas City Royals that season he was 3-1 with a 1.67 ERA.
