Last week, the Tigers designated right-hander Freddy Dolsi for assignment as part of a flurry of moves to make room for the four players acquired in a three-team trade with the Yankees and D-backs.

On Friday, Dolsi found a new home, as the White Sox claimed him off waivers and added him to their 40-man roster.

The 40-man roster is now at 40.

Stats: FG.

B-R shows a 3.55 ERA and 1.629 WHIP with 32 BBs and 32 Ks in 58.1 IP on his 2 years with the Tigers.

Right-hander Ely, one of the top Sox pitching prospects, found out from his agent he was on the short list of potential compensation for the Dodgers as Internet reports claimed he and pitcher John Link would be the players dispatched. Should he depart for Los Angeles, that will end a childhood dream of pitching for the Sox.

“I’d be excited either way, but I grew up a Sox fan,” said the 6-foot-1, 190-pound Ely, a Homewood-Flossmoor alum who was the Sox’s third-round draft pick out of Miami (Ohio) in 2007. “I wanted to pitch for a team I grew up watching.”

“Honestly, I was a little surprised,” he said of being on the list. “But the Sox have a very solid rotation. The more I thought of it, the more excited I was. There would be plenty of opportunity (as a Dodger).”
