The Chicago White Sox are seeking a short-inning relief pitcher. The Chicago White Sox are a Major League Baseball team in the American League, and have a proud tradition of adequate levels of winning dating back to 1901. Position will be called upon to pitch in 6th, 7th, and 8th innings on average of three nights a week, but occasionally on back-to-back nights. Need fastball of at least 91 mph with movement. Additional breaking pitches preferred, but not required. Preference will be given to left-handers, but right-handers are still encouraged to apply. Must be mobile with the ability to field position as a lot of backing up of the catcher is likely to be required. Please provide a list of references with no more than three other professional organizations that have given up on your career. Must understand that injuries are a risk in this line of work, especially with our team's history. Minorities encouraged to apply. Conversational Spanish is a VERY big plus. Email resumes and video files of game footage. No calls please.
