The Chicago White Sox agreed to a minor-league deal with outfielder Brian Goodwin, reports MLB Network's Jon Heyman.

The 30-year-old was released by the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday after he was reassigned to the team's alternate training site following spring training.

Goodwin is a lifetime .250/.317/.455 hitter with 42 home runs and 129 RBIs in five big-league seasons. His best year came with the Los Angeles Angels in 2019 when he belted 17 homers and posted a .796 OPS.

The White Sox were on the hunt for outfield help after losing Eloy Jimenez (ruptured pectoral tendon) and Luis Robert (torn hip flexor) to long-term injuries.

Jimenez is expected to miss five-to-six months following surgery on April 1.

The White Sox placed Robert on the 10-day injured list Tuesday after he suffered an injury Sunday against the Cleveland Indians.
