White Sox claim reliever Dolsi off waivers

Tigers had designated hurler for assignment last week

Last week, the Tigers designated right-hander Freddy Dolsi for assignment as part of a flurry of moves to make room for the four players acquired in a three-team trade with the Yankees and D-backs.

On Friday, Dolsi found a new home, as the White Sox claimed him off waivers and added him to their 40-man roster.

Dolsi would have been assigned to Triple-A Toledo, had he passed through waivers unclaimed.

In '09, Dolsi spent most of the year with Toledo, compiling a 4-3 record to go along with a 3.83 ERA and 10 saves in 39 appearances with the Mud Hens. He also logged six outings with the Tigers, going 1-0 with a 1.69 ERA. He made 42 appearances for the Tigers in 2008, going 1-5 with a 3.97 ERA and two saves.

Dolsi, a Dominican Republic native, was originally signed by the Tigers in 2003.
