Rox sign Vargas, White to Minor League deals
By Thomas Harding / MLB.com
Vargas, 32, posted a 1.78 ERA in 28 relief appearances for the Brewers in 2009 but had a 7.32 ERA in 17 games with Milwaukee last season before the club cut ties with him. He is 48-40 with a 4.83 ERA in 217 Major League games, including 114 starts, with the Expos, D-backs, Brewers, Mets and Dodgers.
White, who turns 30 on April 25, recorded a 2.80 ERA in 52 appearances for the Mariners in 2009 but saw that number balloon, to 5.24, with Seattle last season.
The pair will compete for bullpen jobs.
