The Chicago White Sox have agreed to terms with a pair of free agent southpaws in Donnie Veal and Jose Quintana, the club announced via Twitter. The two signings put the White Sox's 40-man roster at 34.
Veal, 27, posted a 4.22 ERA with a 2.07 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 32 innings of work with the Pittsburgh Pirates' minor league system in 2011. After undergoing reconstructive left elbow surgery, Veal sat out from June 4, 2010 to May 22, 2011. The 27-year-old hasn't made it to the majors since 2009, during a bullpen role with the Pirates.
The other southpaw, Jose Quintana, comes over to the South Side after spending four years with the New York Yankees' minor league system. The 22-year-old posted a 2.91 ERA, 7.8 K/9 and 2.5 BB/9 across 102 innings of work (12 starts). It was his best season in the minor thus far, though it was only in Advanced-A ball.
