Sox ink RHP to one-year deal

CHICAGO -- The Chicago White Sox on Monday announced they have reached a one-year, $1.2 million deal with right-handed pitcher Tony Pena.

The deal means left-hander John Danks is the last arbitration-eligible player for the Sox. Last Saturday, the Sox reached one-year deals with closer Bobby Jenks and outfielder Carlos Quentin.

The 28-year-old Pena went 1-2 with a 3.75 ERA last season for the Sox. Pena, who was acquired from the Arizona Diamondbacks on July 7 in exchange for minor-leaguer Brandon Allen, also had one save and 29 strikeouts in 35 relief appearances. Pena combined to go 6-5 with a 3.99 ERA and 55 strikeouts in 72 games between the Diamondbacks and the Sox.
