CHICAGO - The Chicago White Sox have claimed left-handed pitcher Bill Pulsipher off waivers from the Boston Red Sox.

Pulsipher, 27, was 0-0 with a 5.32 ERA (13 ER/22.0 IP) in 23 games with the Red Sox this season, all in relief. Left-handed batters are hitting .212 (7-for-33) against Pulsipher in 2001.

In parts of six major-league seasons with the New York Mets (1995-96, '98, '00), Milwaukee (1998-99), Arizona (2000) and the Red Sox (2001), Pulsipher is 13-19 with no saves and a 5.06 ERA (177 ER/315.0 IP) in 87 games (46 starts). He went 5-7 for the Mets in 1995, setting career bests for ERA (3.98), IP (126.2) and strikeouts (81).

Pulsipher was 1-1 with a 2.87 ERA (10 ER/31.1 IP) and 10 saves in 10 chances in 24 games at Class AAA Pawtucket before joining Boston on June 28.

To make room for Pulsipher on the 40-man roster, the White Sox transferred left-handed pitcher Jim Parque to the 60-day disabled list.

A corresponding move will be made to the 25-man roster before Friday's game at Tampa Bay.
