White Sox - Signed E. Perez

Chicago White Sox - Signed 1B Eduardo Perez to a minor-league contract.

Perez obviously wouldn’t start with the White Sox, with Thome and Konerko on the team, but he’s still good enough to give Thome an occasional day off against a tough lefty and serve as an emergency 1B/DH for either of those 2 starters.  The big problem is the White Sox roster construction doesn’t leave room for Perez currently.  The Sox do have a good offense, but sooner or later, having a complete joke of a player in left field every game is going to come back and bite them.

I'm hoping the team can find room for Perez somewhere on their Opening Day roster.

Podsednik should start the season on the DL, so Perez might take his spot at first.

Any chance we can see a TO for the Erstad signing, Dan?

It's too bad about his leg problems, Eduardo used to be a pretty capable corner outfielder. He was particularly good at robbing home runs, apparently he took extra practice just doing that over and over.

I'm waiting for the Jeff Weaver TO entry.

I think I'm still waiting for a Mulder entry. :-)

Perez used to play some OF. If he still can, he'd be a nice platoon-mate for Podsednik ... assuming they're not just gonna sit his butt on the bench. (Note, for all I know, Perez makes Manny Ramirez look like Geoff Jenkins in LF.)
