Felipe Paulino, who missed most of 2012 and all of 2013 following Tommy John elbow surgery and also underwent shoulder surgery two months ago, has agreed to a one-year deal with the White Sox.
Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com reports that Paulino will get $1.75 million and the White Sox have a $4 million option or $250,000 buyout for 2015.
Prior to all the injuries Paulino had found some success with the Royals after years of struggling despite a mid-90s fastball, throwing 162 innings with a 3.55 ERA and 158 strikeouts for Kansas City. He has experience as a starter and reliever, so his role will likely depend on the health of his arm and whether the White Sox trade someone from their current rotation.
