White Sox sign free agent pitcher Freddy Garcia

Freddy Garcia is back with the team that he helped win the 2005 World Series, SI.com has learned.

The veteran right-handed pitcher re-signed with the Chicago White Sox on Monday after passing a physical. Garcia, who will be 34 on Wednesday, had been a free agent since being released by the New York Mets on April 28. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Garcia has a 118-77 record and 4.07 ERA over 10 major league seasons, including a 18-6 and 3.05 performance for the Seattle Mariners, his first team, in 2001.

He went 14-8 with a 3.87 ERA for the White Sox in 2005, a year after being traded by the Mariners. He was the winning pitcher in Game 4 of the 2005 World Series, when the White Sox swept the Houston Astros.

Garcia, a native of Venezuela who underwent shoulder surgery in August 2007 while with the Philadelphia Phillies, has also pitched for the Detroit Tigers.
