Marinez has pitched in 26 Triple-A games in the 2012 season, sporting a 3.14 ERA and 3.46 FIP. In his one previous stint in the major leagues -- a 2010 callup with the now-Miami Marlins -- Marinez featured a mid-90s fastball, a high-80s two-seamer and slider.
He joins a White Sox bullpen that has the third-worst bullpen ERA in the American League with a 3.78 ERA.
