The Chicago White Sox apparently have solved their search for a late-inning reliever.
They have agreed to terms with free agent Matt Lindstrom, according to a tweet from CBSSports' Jon Heyman.
Lindstrom, 32, was one of the hardest throwers in the majors during his first three seasons with Florida (2007-09). He has struck out 263 in 326 major league innings with the Marlins, Houston, Colorado, Baltimore and Arizona. Lindstrom has a 3.64 ERA over 358 major league appearances.
According to Heyman, Lindstrom agreed to a one-year contract and an option for 2014, pending a physical examination.
Lindstrom earned $3.6 million last season.
The addition of Lindstrom adds depth to the right side of the Sox's bullpen that already includes closer Addison Reed, Jesse Crain (in the final year of a three-year contract) and Nate Jones.
