(CBS) The White Sox agreed to terms with free agent left-handed pitchers Donnie Veal and Jose Quintana Thursday.
Only Veal, 27, has spent time in the major leagues and he hasn’t done so since 2009. He was originally selected by the Cubs in the second round of the 2005 draft and his only major-league experience came when he made 19 relief appearances with the Pirates in 2009. Veal underwent Tommy John surgery in 2010 and spent 2011 recovering in the Rookie Gulf Coast League.
Meanwhile, Quintana, 22, has never reached the majors after originally signing with the Mets as a free agent in 2006. He moved on to the Yankees in 2008 and last year went 10-2 with a 2.91 ERA in 30 appearances (14 starts) with Class-A Tampa.
