The Chicago White Sox have claimed right-hander Hector Noesi off waivers from the Texas Rangers, according to an announcement from the team. Noesi was designated for assignment on Tuesday.
Noesi, 27, heads to his third team of the season after making appearances with the Mariners and Rangers. He has struggled mightily in five games, surrendering ten earned runs on 13 hits in 6.1 innings, which amounts to a 14.21 ERA.
Noesi could start for the White Sox on Sunday against the Rays, but is more likely to work out of the team's bullpen as a long man in the near future. He is out of options, so he will immediately join Chicago's 25-man roster and be available for this weekend's series against Tampa.
In parts of four major league seasons with the Yankees (2011), Mariners (2012-2014) and Rangers (2014), Noesi is the owner of a lifetime 4-16 record and 5.81 ERA in 69 games (21 starts) at the major league level. He was involved in the 2011 trade that sent Jesus Montero to the Mariners and Michael Pineda to the Yankees.
