The White Sox agreed to terms with free-agent right-handed pitcher Ronald Belisario on a one year, $3 million deal on Thursday.
Belisario ranked second in appearances in the National League last season as he went 5-7 with a 3.97 ERA in 77 games with the Dodgers last season.
“Belisario provides us with a veteran reliever who owns a proven record of recording key outs at big moments of games,” general manager Rick Hahn said via the team press release. “He is a power arm with plus stuff who profiles well for our ballpark. He has experience pitching in hold and save situations, and we see him as yet another very strong option for Robin Ventura in the back end of our bullpen.”
Throughout his last four seasons in Los Angeles, Belisario recorded four saves, 220 strikouts and a .227 opponents average in 273 games (all relief).
He is scheduled to be arbitration eligible following the 2014 and 2015 seasons and is not eligible for free agency until after the 2016 season.
The White Sox 40-man roster now stands at 40.
