White Sox Sign Van Benschoten

According to MLB.com’s Jenifer Langosch, the White Sox signed former Pirates first-round pick John Van Benschoten to a minor league deal.  JvB posted a 3.92 ERA in 80.1 Triple A innings this year, with less-than-exciting peripheral stats.  His Major League trials have not gone well.

Van Benschoten had surgery to repair a labrum tear and remove a cyst in his pitching shoulder in January of ’05, and the shoulder continued to bother him the following year.
