Chicago White Sox Sign Kip Wells

The Chicago White Sox have signed right-hander Kip Wells to a minor league deal, reports Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.

An 11-year big league veteran, Wells hasn't pitched in the majors since 2009, when he put up a forgettable 5.33 ERA in 72 innings for the Nats and the Reds.

The 34-year-old recently tried out for several teams, reportedly hitting in the 93-94mph range with his fastball.

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports adds that Wells' tryout with the White Sox may have been unplanned:

Pitching for eight different teams in his 11-year career, Wells has a career 4.71 ERA, 4.3 BB/9 and 6.5 K/9.

Wells will begin his second stint in the Chicago White Sox organization at their Triple-A affiliate.
