The White Sox have claimed right-handed pitcher Emilio Vargas off waivers from the Arizona Diamondbacks.
The 24-year-old sports low-90s stuff with good offspeed alternatives. Vargas made his way to the AA Jackson Generals last year. Over the course of the 2019 season, he posted a 3.84 ERA across multiple minor league levels.
This transaction shores up some depth for White Sox minor league pitching going forward. New pitching coach, Ethan Katz, will have plenty of opportunities to prove himself working with the 40-man roster as it comes to fruition.
