I can only assume Ozzie Guillen recommended him before leaving for Miami.
The White Sox on Tuesday acquired infielder Jose Castro from the Reds for a player to be named and assigned him to Triple-A Charlotte.
Castro, a 25-year-old second baseman and shortstop, hit .306/.343/.354 with no homers and no steals in 291 at-bats between Double-A Carolina and Triple-A Louisville last year. The White Sox are currently going with a light-hitting 23-year-old in Eduardo Escobar as their utilityman and needed some extra infield depth. Castro fits the bill, but it’s doubtful he’ll have a significant major league career.
