The Chicago White Sox signed left-handed pitcher Hector Santiago to a minors deal with an invitation to major league camp, the team announced Wednesday.
Santiago, 30, is coming off one of his worst seasons, as a member of the Minnesota Twins. Over 15 appearances — 14 of which came in a starting role — he finished 4-8 with a 5.63 ERA, 1.436 WHIP and 6.08 FIP. He was tagged for 44 runs on 70 hits and 31 walks over the course of 70 1/3 innings.
Santiago got to Minnesota late during the 2016 season, traded from the Los Angeles Angels in return for Ricky Nolasco, Alex Meyer and cash. Santiago wound up going 3-6 with a 5.58 ERA in his first cup of coffee with the Twins.
