White Sox Sign Left-Hander Hector Santiago To A Minor League Deal

Published

on

The Chicago White Sox have agreed to a minor league deal with left-handed pitcher Hector Santiago.

The contract includes a non-roster invitation to spring training.

Santiago, 30, went 4-8 with a 5.63 ERA in 15 games (14 starts) for the Minnesota Twins last season. Originally drafted by the White Sox back in 2006, he spent the first three seasons of his Major League career in Chicago.

After the 2013 season, Santiago was traded to the Los Angeles Angels. In 2015, he was named to the American League All-Star team. That season, Santiago went 9-9 with an ERA of 3.59 ERA in 33 games (32 starts). He spent two-and-a-half years with the Angels before getting traded again, this time to the Twins.

Throughout his career, Santiago has proven himself to be a competent starting pitcher. He has not produced stellar number, but has always been a decent backend of the rotation guy. It will be interesting to see if Santiago can perform well enough in spring training to earn a spot on the White Sox 25-man roster.
