Red Sox Sign RP Sean White

In an effort to improve their bullpen depth, the Boston Red Sox have signed right handed relief pitcher Sean White to a minor league contract, according to a report on NESN.com.

White comes to Boston after spending the 2011 season pitching for the Colorado Rockies Triple A-affiliate.

Prior to 2011, White had spent four seasons in the Seattle Mariners organization, during which he logged 105 major league appearances, posting a 4-4 record and a 4.16 career ERA. White was originally a 2003 draft choice of the Atlanta Braves, whom he spent the first four seasons of his professional career with.

Unlike previous offseasons, the Red Sox have shied away from major money acquisitions, opting instead to rebuild their bullpen in the wake of Johnathan Papelbon's departure by trading for Andrew Bailey and Mark Melancon, both of whom carry reasonable price tags.

Saturday marked "Truck Day" in Boston, during which members of the Red Sox organization packed up the Fenway Park clubhouse and began their trek down to Florida for the start of Spring Training, which will be held at JetBlue Park at Fenway South for the first time.
