The White Sox sign Alan Embree

alan embree headshot athletics.jpgHave left arm, will travel: the Chisox have signed Alan Embree to a minor league deal and assigned him to Charlotte.

Embree, of course, began the year in the Bosox organization, but was let go by the team without throwing a pitch for the big club.

Embree actually pitched 39 games for the White Sox back in 2001, but you’re forgiven if you forgot about that. He’s bounced around so much in his career that his Baseball-Reference page looks like someone spilled bacon grease all over it and tried to wipe it off with a donut.  Really, if you look hard enough at that thing I’m pretty sure you could find that he pitched 14 games for the Brooklyn Superbas.

    I think he’s only one team behind Matt Stairs now.

    His goatee had a clubhouse fracas with Youk’s so they had to let him go. Good thing they didn’t sign Clay Zavada, he’d have face-whipped Youk right out of town.

    Well, now his goatee can have a deathmatch with Bobby Jenks’ goatee.
