The Chicago White Sox have signed infielder Jose Lopez and assigned him to their Triple-A affiliate, the team has announced:

Lopez was designated for assignment by the Cleveland Indians earlier this month and released by the club five days later. Cleveland could have outrighted the veteran to their Triple-A club, but he would have had to sign off on that move.

Lopez signed with the Indians this off-season after being granted free agency by the Miami Marlins following the 2011 season. Over the 28-year-old’s 231 at-bats with the Colorado Rockies and Marlins in 2011, he hit at a clip of .216/.245/.372 with twelve doubles and eight home runs.

This season for the Indians Lopez posted a line of .249/.272/.366 with thirteen doubles and four home runs before he was designated. He owns a career clip of .262/.293/.396 over nine seasons in the majors.
