LaMarre, 29, hit .263 with five doubles and eight RBIs in 43 games with Minnesota this season before he was designated for assignment on July 2. He played in 13 games with Triple-A Rochester, batting .313 (15-for-48).

The White Sox will be LaMarre's sixth team in four years since he broke into the big leagues with Cincinnati in 2015. A second-round pick of the Reds out of the University of Michigan in the 2010 Draft, LaMarre also appeared in a handful of games for the Red Sox ('16) and A's ('17). He began the 2016 season with the Angels organization, but he didn't reach Majors before he was dealt to Oakland in late April. 

LaMarre is a .206/.264/.243 career hitter through 72 games in the big leagues.
