White Sox signed LHP Joe Savery to a minor league contract.
The deal includes an invitation to spring training, as well. The 29-year-old southpaw appeared in just three games with the Athletics in 2014, hurling four scoreless innings. He was terrific at Triple-A Sacramento, compiling a 2.84 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 45/17 K/BB ratio over 44 1/3 innings. He'll have a strong chance of cracking the White Sox bullpen on Opening Day.

Athletics designated LHP Joe Savery for assignment.

Savery has posted good numbers this year at Triple-A and owns a decent 3.83 career ERA in the majors, but the A's needed to open up a 40-man roster spot to improve their position player depth for the stretch run.

Athletics optioned LHP Joe Savery to Triple-A Sacramento.

Athletics optioned LHP Joe Savery to Triple-A Sacramento.

Savery had a good spring but didn't have a spot in the Athletics' bullpen, as three lefties -- Sean Doolittle, Fernando Abad and Drew Pomeranz -- slotted ahead of him on the depth chart. Savery, who's gone from pitcher to position player back to pitcher in his career, will likely make an appearance in Oakland before the season is out.

Joe Savery tossed two shutout innings in Monday's start against the Cubs.

Savery, impressively, struck out five while allowing just two hits and a walk. The lefty has had a solid spring showing with his new club, despite some control issues. He has struck out 11 and walked five in 6 2/3 innings in the Cactus League. Still, he's very likely to open the season at Triple-A.

Athletics claimed LHP Joe Savery off waivers from the Phillies.

Savery was designated for assignment by Philadelphia this past weekend to clear a 40-man roster spot for new starter A.J. Burnett. Savery is a former first-round draft pick, but the 28-year-old left-hander hasn't found much success at the major league level. He will have to earn a spot in the highly talented Oakland bullpen this spring.

Phillies designated LHP Joe Savery for assignment.

The move was made in order to clear room on the 40-man roster for the addition of A.J. Burnett. A former first-round pick, Savery holds a 4.15 ERA with 32 strikeouts over 47 2/3 innings during his career. The 28-year-old could receive some interest on waivers.

Phillies recalled LHP Joe Savery from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Savery holds a 1.38 ERA but an ugly 6/9 K/BB ratio over 13 innings in the majors this season. He'll be used in the middle innings.
Mon, Sep 2, 2013 06:31:00 PM

Phillies activated LHP Joe Savery from the 15-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Savery, out since mid-July with elbow stiffness, had two scoreless rehab appearances over the past week. The 27-year-old southpaw could be an option to join the Phillies' bullpen in September.

Joe Savery (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment later this week.

Tue, Aug 20, 2013 09:36:00 PM

Phillies placed LHP Joe Savery on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 14, with left elbow stiffness.
