Add two more names to the list of pitchers that will have a chance to earn their way onto the White Sox's 2011 pitching staff.

According to a major league source, the White Sox have agreed on minor league contracts with right-handers Josh Kinney and Shane Lindsay.

Kinney spent the 2010 season with the Cardinals' Triple-A club in Mempis, posting a 1.80 ERA in 60 innings. He spent parts of the three previous seasons, though, in the major leagues with St. Louis, posting a combined 4.56 ERA and 1.33 WHIP in 47 1/3 innings, all in relief.

Lindsay, a native of Australia, has never pitched in the major leagues, reaching the Triple-A level last season. Primarily a reliever the past two seasons, he has spent the bulk of his career with the Colorado Rockies organization.

Kinney and Lindsay join Brian Bruney and Jeff Gray as pitchers who have signed minor league deals with the White Sox. All four are expected to receive non-roster invitations to big-league camp at spring training.
