The White Sox have signed 2011 25th round pick RHP Chris Devenski:

Bats: Right

Height: 6’03″
Weight: 200
Born: 1990-11-13
Hometown: Santa Ana, CA
Class:  Junior

Devenski was assigned to Great Falls.

Baseball America’s scouting report:

So does Devenski, a converted shortstop who transferred from Golden West JC. He fell out of favor early in the year before coming on again a bit in the second half, though he had a 4.98 ERA in 22 innings through 15 appearances on the spring. Devenski ran his fastball up to 94 mph in the fall, but he’s been more 90-92 and straight this spring, and there were outings when he worked in the high 80s. His slider and changeup are serviceable.

Here are his College Stats:

Year ERA W-L APP-GS CG SHO/CBO SV IP H R ER BB SO 2B 3B HR AB B/Avg WP HBP BK SFA SHA
