White Sox Receive 2 Players In Guillen Deal
MIAMI (AP) -- The Chicago White Sox have acquired right-hander Jhan Marinez and infielder Ozzie Martinez as part of the agreement that allowed the Florida Marlins to hire Ozzie Guillen as manager.

The Marlins acquired minor league right-hander Ricardo Andres in the deal announced Thursday.

Guillen was released this week from the final year of his contract with the White Sox and signed a four-year deal with the Marlins.

Marinez's only major-league experience came in 2010, when he had a 1-1 record in four games with Florida. Martinez had a .258 average in 34 games over the past two seasons.
