CHICAGO -- The Chicago White Sox have agreed to terms on a one-year contract that includes a 2008 club option with veteran left-handed reliever Mike Myers. Under terms of the contract, Myers will receive the prorated minimum salary for the remainder of the 2007 season, and the White Sox hold a $1.1-million option for 2008 with no buyout.

Myers, 38, went 3-0 with a 2.66 ERA (12 ER/40.2 IP) and 21 strikeouts in 55 games with the Yankees this season before being designated for assignment on August 6. The 6-foot-3, 225-pounder held right-handers to a .182 (14-77) average, while lefties hit .312 (24-77).

Over 13 seasons in the major leagues with eight teams, Myers is 24-24 with a 4.11 ERA (241 ER/548.0 IP) in 866 games. He has limited left-handers to a .218 (233-1,071) average. Among active players, his 866 appearances are tied for sixth and rank second among left-handers behind only Mike Stanton (1,164), while his 162 holds are tied for fourth.

Myers takes the roster spot of infielder/outfielder Andy Gonzalez, who was optioned to Class AAA Charlotte following Sunday's game at Seattle.

With the moves, the White Sox 40-man roster increases to 38.
