The White Sox have signed pitcher Daniel McCutchen to a minor league contract and assigned him to Triple-A Charlotte, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

McCutchen, 31, made one appearance in the major leagues for the Rangers on April 4. He lasted 2 1/3 innings, allowing three runs (two earned) on four hits and two walks without striking out a batter. With Triple-A Round Rock, McCutchen posted a 7.05 ERA with a 54/13 K/BB ratio and 22 home runs allowed in 60 innings across eight starts and seven relief appearances.

Ken Rosenthal reports that the Milwaukee Brewers have signed Gio Gonzalez. Gonzalez will get a $2 million base salary with $2 million in potential performance bonuses.

Gonzalez was excellent for the Brewers down the stretch last season, posting a 2.13 ERA over his final five regular season starts. While it’s not likely he can replicate that, given how terrible Milwaukee’s rotation has been thus far — they have a 5.74 ERA as a group this season — he can’t hurt.

Not a bad landing pad for a guy who had to settle for a minor league deal with the Yankees before being released over the weekend.
