    The White Sox added a veteran reliever to their bullpen on Friday, signing right-hander Matt Lindstrom to a one-year contract with a club option for 2014. The Chicago White Sox say they have agreed to a one-year contract with reliever Matt Lindstrom that includes a club option for 2014. Lindstrom has also pitched for the Marlins , Astros and Rockies during his six-year Major League career. "I kept on wondering where the White Sox were," said Lindstrom, who made his first official appearance as part of the team during SoxFest on Friday after agreeing to terms on a one-year, $2.3 million deal with a $4 million club option or $500,000 buyout for 2014. Described as a high-energy, great clubhouse guy with a great arm, Lindstrom has become more of a pitcher than the high-octane thrower who hit 100 mph on the speed gun early in his career. "Having a deal work out with this team, I'm just really excited to get going with this group of guys in the bullpen." "It's the first time in my career I actually had an opportunity to choose where I wanted to play, as opposed to having other people make that decision for me," he continued.
