The 30-year old former Astro heads to his third organization of the season.

The Chicago White Sox have signed shortstop Tommy Manzella to a minor league contract, a source has confirmed to MLB Daily Dish. The 30-year old will report to Double-A Birmingham after being released by the Blue Jays earlier in the week.

After signing with the Rockies last offseason, Manzella appeared in 32 games for Triple-A Colorado Springs to start the season, and hit .190 with 10 RBI before being released in late May.

He signed with the Blue Jays on June 4th, and reported to Double-A New Hampshire. In 53 games between Colorado Springs and New Hampshire this season, Manzella has hit .220 with 20 RBI in 173 at-bats.

Manzella appeared in 90 big league games with the Astros in 2009 and 2010, hitting .224 with 1 RBI.

He spent the last two months of his 2012 season in the White Sox' system with Triple-A Charlotte after seeing time in the Brewers and Diamondbacks organizations to begin the year.
