The Chicago White Sox have signed Matt Lindstrom to a one-year deal. He has spent six years in the league bouncing around between five different teams. He hopes to find a new long-term home in Chicago, but he will have to prove himself first.
According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, Lindstrom will undergo a physical, then signs one-year deal with the White Sox.

The club option for 2014 will be key for Lindstrom. If he can perform well enough to convince the White Sox to pick that up, he will be with the same team for more than one year for just the second time in his career.
Lindstrom has a career 3.64 ERA in 358 games. He has pitched out of the bullpen for his entire career. Last season, with Orioles and the Diamondbacks, Lindstrom had a 2.68 ERA in 46 relief appearances.
