Former Pirates right-hander John Van Benschoten has signed a Minor League contract with the White Sox, officially severing ties with the Pirates organization that made him the eighth overall pick in the 2001 First-Year Player Draft.

I thought maybe they were trying to replace Griffey Jr's production in the White Sox lineup...

Well, at least they succeeded in replacing his injury risk.

Quite obviously a panic move after the Royals signed Osario...look for them to chase Paulino in a trade to offset the JR House deal. I'm buying the MLB package this year to catch all the AL Central action....can't wait to see JVB go toe to toe with Bullington and Osario. I think I might buy some stock in baseballs, too....they are going to lose a few.

Wow....taking the Pirates rejects is like going to a yard sale at the landfill.
