ATLANTA (AP) - Carl Everett rejoined the Chicago White Sox Sunday when the veteran outfielder was acquired from the Montreal Expos for minor league
pitchers Jon Rauch and Gary Majewski.
Everett played the final 73 games of 2003 for Chicago after starting the season with the Texas Rangers. He batted .301 with 10 home runs and 41 RBIs
with Chicago, then signed a $7.5 million, two-year contract with Montreal in December.
This season, the injury-plagued Everett has a .252 average, with two homers and 14 RBIs in 39 games. He missed 30 games with an injured shoulder
early, then hurt his ankle while on a minor league rehab assignment.
When he returned to the Expos' lineup, he aggravated that ankle injury and went back on the disabled list.
With Magglio Ordonez still slowed by a knee injury, the White Sox needed another outfielder. Ordonez came off the disabled list last week after
missing 36 games, but has been able to play only as a designated hitter since his return.
Rauch, 6-foot-11, was 6-3 with a 3.11 ERA at Triple-A Charlotte, while Majewski was 3-3 with a team-high 14 saves.
