Conor Jackson was released by the Rangers earlier this week after batting just .091 (3-for-33) during Cactus League action, but he has already found a new home.

According to Mark Gonzalez of the Chicago Tribune, the White Sox have signed Jackson to a minor league contract. The 29-year-old will begin the season with Triple-A Charlotte and offers some first base and outfield depth.

Jackson still owns a .271/.351/.407 batting line in the majors, but he really hasn’t been the same player since Valley Fever limited him to just 30 games in 2009. He batted just .244/.310/.341 with five homers, 43 RBI and a .651 OPS over 390 plate appearances last season between the Athletics and Red Sox.

    Finally, the missing piece in our rebuilding effort; the future is bright indeed. I see like 50 or maybe even 60 wins this coming year, which is 50 or 60 more than what we started out with!

    Sad to see CoJacks career take a turn for the worst. Before 2009 I always thought CoJack was a solid piece on the dbacks roster. He was also really involved with the fans and the community in Phoenix. Good luck CoJack!
