White Sox Rumors: Chicago signs veteran free agent RHP Brad Penny

The Chicago White Sox have signed veteran right-hander Brad Penny to a minor-league contract, adding potential depth to their starting rotation if Penny impresses during spring training.

Here SBNation's Chris Cotillo with the report:

The 36-year-old Penny is looking to put together a late-career comeback after failing to make the Kansas City Royals out of spring training last year. He did, however, join the Miami Marlins last year, posting a 6.58 ERA and 4.5 K/9 in 26 innings (four starts, four relief appearances) with the team.

Penny may have an uphill battle to make the White Sox roster come opening day, but could very well be an option later in the 2015 MLB season if called upon to fill a hole in the rotation.
