Chicago White Sox signing RHP Johnny Cueto to minor league deal

The Chicago White Sox and right-hander Johnny Cueto are in agreement on a minor league contract.

The deal is worth up to $4.2 million, prorated for days spent in the big leagues, a source told ESPN’s Jeff Passan.

Cueto, 36, started 21 games for the San Francisco Giants last season and went 7-7 with a 4.08 ERA in what was a resurgent campaign for the two-time All-Star.

He was average-ish last year, missed about 4 weeks early then again in Sept but came back to pitch 2 reasonably effective innings on Sept 30 presumably to show teams he was healthy enough. Given he had to wait this long, I assume teams didn't exactly believe that small sample. If he's pitched for anybody this spring, b-r didn't track it. Anyway, assuming it has the standard sort of "paid little while in the minors and must be promoted or released by date X" structure, this seems a no-brainer.

That's exactly it, Walt. It's a minor league deal so he can start in AAA since he didn't pitch anywhere in ST.

This is a good deal for white Sox. Surprised a team like the cubs or d-backs or reds didn't sign him.

One of the things about having TLR as manager is that he gets in the face of the owner/GM when he feels like he needs help. I don't think a lot of managers fee like they can do that.
