Mat Latos has agreed to a $3 million, one-year contract with the Chicago White Sox, giving manager Robin Ventura another option for the back end of his rotation.
The team announced the deal on Tuesday. ESPN was first to report the agreement.
Latos had consecutive 14-win seasons with Cincinnati in 2012 and 2013, but the 6-foot-6 right-hander hasn't been able to duplicate that success in recent years. He played for the Marlins, Dodgers and Angels last season, finishing with a 4-10 record and a 4.95 ERA.
His fastball velocity dipped to 92-93 mph for most of last season, down from 93-96 in 2012.
