White Sox, J.J. Putz Agree To Terms

The White Sox reached a one-year, $3MM deal with reliever J.J. Putz, tweets MLB.com's Noah CoslovAOL FanHouse's Ed Price tweets that Putz can earn another $3MM in incentives for games finished.  Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports tweets of another $250K in incentives for appearances.  A Bobby Jenks trade might be good for Putz's wallet. 

Putz was scheduled to throw for teams today; he had also drawn interest from the Cubs, Nationals, Pirates, Tigers, D'Backs, and Phillies.  The righty, 33 in February, tallied only 29.3 innings this year for the Mets due to elbow issues.  He was dominant for the Mariners in '06 and '07.

On a related note, MLB.com's Scott Merkin reports that Sox reliever D.J. Carrasco could be non-tendered tomorrow.  Carrasco, 33 in April, posted a 3.76 ERA, 6.0 K/9, and 2.8 BB/9 in 93.3 innings this year.  His peripheral stats weren't much different from Brandon Lyon's.
