White Sox Sign Jeremy Reed

The White Sox signed outfielder Jeremy Reed to a minor league deal yesterday, according to the team's transactions page.  Reed has been assigned to the Triple A Charlotte Knights.

Reed, 29, signed a minor league deal with the Blue Jays in January.  He elected free agency after being outrighted earlier this month.  Reed has come full circle since being ranked the 25th-best prospect in baseball as a member of the Knights heading into the 2004 season.  He was traded to the Mariners in June of that year as the centerpiece in the Freddy Garcia deal.  Reed hasn't hit as expected in his big league career, but he has been able to handle center field.
