Yet another White Sox reliever out the door. Jennings had registered a 3.45 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 38/19 K/BB ratio in 44 1/3 innings this season for Chicago and will now slide into a left-handed setup role with Tampa Bay. The 30-year-old southpaw is under contractual control through 2019.

White Sox and LHP Dan Jennings avoid arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.4 million contract.

He made $810,000 last year and gets a nice bump in his second year of arbitration eligibility. The 29-year-old lefthander comes off an excellent season in which he put up a 2.08 ERA in 60 2/3 innings. He has a 2.74 career ERA in 233 games. Despite his effectiveness he has tallied only one save and 20 holds spread over five seasons.

Dan Jennings (concussion) began a rehab assignment with the Gulf Coast League Marlins on Tuesday.

Jennings expects to be activated next month.

Dan Jennings left Thursday's game against the Pirates after a Jordy Mercer line drive caught him in the head.

It was a scary situation in Pittsburgh, as Jennings slumped to the ground as the ball ricocheted off his head before being caught by shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria. He arose briefly before stumbling and needing to be assisted by catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia. The good news is that while Jennings was certainly dazed, he never lost consciousness and saluted the crowd as he was carted off the field. The Marlins will perform concussion tests, and Jennings is almost surely headed to the disabled list.
