White Sox designate Ronald Belisario for assignment

0 Comments

Ronaldo Belisario, who served as the White Sox’s closer for part of this season, has been designated for assignment and dropped from the 40-man roster.

Belisario was arbitration eligible, so the White Sox made this move rather than simply non-tendering the 32-year-old right-hander ahead of the December 2 deadline.

Prior to this year Belisario had a solid track record for the Dodgers, tossing 265 innings with a 3.29 ERA from 2009-2013, but he struggled for the White Sox with a 5.56 ERA and 47/18 K/BB ratio in 66 innings.

He figures to latch on somewhere as a middle reliever.
