Reliever Mike Myers and the Chicago White Sox reached agreement on a contract today, two weeks after the New York Yankees cut the submarining lefty.
The 38-year-old Myers will get the prorated minimum salary for the rest of this season. The White Sox hold an around $1 million option for next year with no buyout.
Myers was 3-0 with a 2.66 ERA in 55 games this season. Expected to be a situational left-hander, he was actually more effective against righties. Lefties hit .312 against Myers while righties batted .182.
The White Sox optioned infielder-outfielder Andy Gonzalez yesterday to Tripe-A Charlotte.
