White Sox claim Dolsi off waivers

The Chicago White Sox continued to add relievers to their roster as they claimed right hander Freddy Dolsi formerly of the Detroit Tigers.

Dolsi had been placed on waivers by the Tigers in order to clear up roster space following the blockbuster trade that sent Curtis Granderson to the Yankees. He put up a 1.69 ERA in 10 2/3 innings with Detroit this season and in 47.2 innings in 2008 had a 3.97 ERA and a 1.63 WHIP.

The 26 year old from the Dominican Republic had compiled a 3.54 ERA and a 1.38 WHIP in 226.1 innings over six seasons in the Tigers minor league system.

Dolsi isn’t much of an option for the White Sox in the late innings at this point but with Bobby Jenks trade rumors still in the air and a group of lackluster relievers vying for the remaining spots in the White Sox pen he figures to have a pretty fair shot of making the club this spring. At worst he’s someone the White Sox can stash at Triple-A and call up later in the season.
