Ronald Belisario has elected free agency.

Belisario had been removed from the White Sox' 40-man roster earlier this month. The veteran reliever served as Chicago's closer for a portion of the 2014 season but ultimately posted a 5.56 ERA and 1.45 WHIP over 66 1/3 innings. He might have to settle for a minor league deal this winter.

White Sox signed OF Tony Campana to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Campana's wife, Whitney, revealed the news of her husband's signing on Twitter. The deal presumably contains an invitation to spring training, where Campana will compete for a bench job. The speedy outfielder batted just .187/.197/.227 in 44 games in the majors this past season for the Angels and Diamondbacks.

White Sox sent RHP Ronald Belisario outright to Triple-A Charlotte.

The veteran right-hander passed through waivers unclaimed. He'll now have to decide whether to accept the outright assignment or to hit the free agent market and attempt to find a better opportunity elsewhere. He posted a 5.56 ERA and 1.45 WHIP over 66 1/3 innings with the club in 2014.
Nov 26 - 7:16 PM

White Sox designated RHP Scott Carroll for assignment.

The move clears a spot for the newly-signed Adam LaRoche on the 40-man roster. Carroll, 29, had a 4.80 ERA and 64/45 K/BB ratio in 129 1/3 innings across 19 starts and seven relief appearances this past season. There's not much upside here, but he could draw some interest from other teams.

White Sox signed 1B Adam LaRoche to a two-year, $25 million contract.

The agreement was reported last Friday and it's now official. LaRoche will make $12 million next season and $13 million in 2016. With Jose Abreu already in-house, the 35-year-old figures to serve as the regular DH for Chicago. LaRoche amassed 26 home runs and 92 RBI in 140 games with the Nationals this season and should continue to post strong power numbers in the hitter-friendly U.S. Cellular Field.

White Sox signed LHP Joe Savery to a minor league contract.

The deal should include 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.

White Sox signed INF Juan Diaz to a minor league contract.

The 25-year-old spent the 2014 campaign in the Marlins organization where he slashed .278/.310/.418 with 12 homers and 63 RBI in 131 games at Triple-A New Orleans. He could have a chance to crack the White Sox roster as a utility infielder.
Nov 22 - 9:01 AM

White Sox signed RHP Logan Kensing to a minor league contract.

The deal is expected to include an invitation to major league spring training. The 32-year-old has appeared in just one big league game since the 2009 season. In 49 appearances for Triple-A Tacoma in 2014 he registered a 3.58 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 79/33 K/BB ratio over 88 innings.
Nov 22 - 8:43 AM

Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports that the White Sox and Adam LaRoche have agreed to a two-year, $25 million contract.

With Jose Abreu entrenched as the team's first baseman, it's likely that LaRoche will see most of his time in the DH role in the White Sox lineup. The 35-year-old slugger slashed .259/.362/.455 with 26 homers and 92 RBI in 140 games with the Nationals in 2014 and should see increased power numbers with the move to the hitter-friendly confines of U.S. Cellular Field.

ESPN's Buster Olney has been told by rival evaluators that the asking price for Alexei Ramirez has been "steep."

The Dodgers are one team known to have interest in Ramirez, but the White Sox have reportedly fielded plenty of inquiries (which could be why they're asking for so much). Ramirez, who batted .273/.305/.408 with 15 homers, 74 RBI and 21 steals in 2014, will make $10 million in 2015 and has a $10 million club option for 2016.
Nov 20 - 8:28 PM

White Sox claimed LHP Onelki Garcia off waivers from the Dodgers.

Garcia missed basically the entire 2014 season after undergoing surgery on his pitching elbow last November. The left-hander should be healthy for the start of the 2015 campaign and will be trying to win a spot in the White Sox bullpen next spring in camp. He has a 3.06 career ERA and 9.9 career K/9 in the minors.
Nov 20 - 3:40 PM

White Sox sent OF Jared Mitchell outright to Triple-A Charlotte.

Mitchell was a first-round pick in 2009 and once considered a top prospect, but he has not met the hype. The 26-year-old is no longer on Chicago's 40-man roster.
Nov 20 - 3:39 PM

White Sox purchased the contract of C Kevan Smith from Triple-A Double-A Birmingham.

Smith is now on the 40-man roster and protected from selection in December's Rule 5 Draft. The 26-year-old catcher batted .290/.376/.437 with 10 home runs and 48 RBI in 106 games this past season at Double-A.
Nov 20 - 3:36 PM

White Sox purchased the contract of OF/INF Tyler Saladino from Triple-A Charlotte.

Saladino, a seventh-round pick in the 2010 MLB Amateur Draft, hit .310/.367/.483 in 82 games this past season at Triple-A. He is now on Chicago's 40-man roster.
Nov 20 - 3:34 PM

White Sox purchased the contract of 1B Rangel Ravelo from Double-A Birmingham.

Ravelo batted .309/.386/.473 with 11 home runs and 10 stolen bases in 133 games this past season at Double-A. The first baseman is now on Chicago's 40-man roster and protected from December's Rule 5 Draft.
