CHICAGO -- The Chicago White Sox have declined to offer 2006 contracts to pitchers Jon Adkins and Felix Diaz, infielder Willie Harris and outfielder Timo Perez, making all four free agents.

Adkins, a 28-year-old right-hander, spent most of 2005 at Class AAA Charlotte, going 4-9 with a 5.37 ERA (76 ER/127.1 IP) in 23 games (21 starts). He was 2-4 with a 5.08 ERA (45 ER/78.2 IP) in 59 relief outings with the Sox from 2003-05.

Diaz, a 25-year-old right-hander, spent all of the 2005 season at Charlotte, going 6-8 with a 5.00 ERA (68 ER/122.1 IP) and 108 strikeouts in 21 starts. He went 2-5 with a 6.75 ERA (37 ER/49.1 IP) in 18 games (seven starts) with the Sox in 2004.

Harris, 27, spent most of last season with the White Sox, hitting .256 with one home run, eight RBI and 10 stolen bases. He scored the winning run in the Sox 1-0 victory in Game 4 of the World Series at Houston. Harris is a lifetime .242 (207-854) hitter in 317 major-league games, all with the White Sox.

Perez, 30, batted .218 (39-179) with two home runs and 15 RBI with Chicago in 2005. He owns a career .263 (408-1,550) average with 25 home runs and 169 RBI over six major-league seasons, including the last two with the Sox.
