Octavio Dotel Signs With White Sox

UPDATE, 1-21-08 at 2:29pm: According to Ken Rosenthal, this deal is done, though the AP won't quite confirm itSox Machine debates the pros and cons of the signing and ultimately doesn't mind it.

UPDATE, 1-18-08 at 2:27pm: Scott Merkin at MLB.com talked to Dotel's agent, who will only say that Dotel is in the mix.  No deal has been reached.  Apparently six teams are in "active discussions" about Dotel.

FROM 1-18-08 at 7:15am:

According to Impacto Deportivo, the White Sox have signed Octavio Dotel to a two-year, $11MM deal.  The 32 year-old reliever had a 4.11 ERA and 12.0 K/9 in 30.2 innings last year.

The White Sox have decided to buy a bullpen this year, always a risky move.  Dotel can still bring it; it's just a question of health.  He dealt with shoulder and oblique strains last year, and had Tommy John in June of '05.  The White Sox seem to have a good medical staff, and they'll be crucial in making this signing pay off.
