Scott Podsednik agreed a minor league contract with the Chicago White Sox Tuesday, insurance for a team stretched thin in center field after Dewayne Wise was placed on the 15 day DL with a separated right shoulder.

Podsednik played with the White Sox from 2005 to 2007, helping the team to its first World Series since 1917.

A former base-stealing machine, he hit .290 during the '05 championship season and hit a memorable walk-off home run in Game 2 of the World Series that year.

His performance wavered through 2007 and was released after the season was up, going on to find a home with the Colorado Rockies until he was released on April 1 this year.

As something of a hometown hero, Podsednik will be welcomed back with open arms to the south side of Chicago as he tries to win back his position in the outfield and the top of the batting order.
