Machi signed with the Sugar Land Skeeters of the Atlantic League on Sunday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.
The 36-year-old has pitched just 7.2 big-league innings since 2015, all of them coming last season with the Mariners. He has a 3.38 career ERA in 191.2 innings in the majors.
Machi was acquired by the White Sox from the Mariners for cash, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Machi is a well-traveled veteran reliever who was pitching at Triple-A Tacoma. For the White Sox, he'll pitch at Triple-A Charlotte and could work his way up to Chicago if the team trades any more relievers.
Machi was outrighted to Triple-A Tacoma on Sunday.
Machi was designated for assignment Saturday and is headed to the Pacific Coast League. Machi allowed just one run over 7.2 innings (five games) with the big club before being sent to Tacoma, but he's coming off a 2016 campaign that saw him post a 5.12 ERA and 1.40 WHIP.
Machi was designated for assignment Saturday.
Despite a 1.17 ERA, the veteran reliever had a measly 4:4 K:BB in 7.2 innings in the majors this season. This move opened up a spot on the 40-man roster for Saturday's starter, Ryan Weber.
Machi (1-0) fired a scoreless inning in Wednesday's 8-7 win over the Angels.
Making his second appearance in as many nights, Machi was highly effective once again, disposing of Andrelton Simmons, Ben Revere and Cliff Pennington in 11 pitches. The 35-year-old right-hander has surrendered just one hit through his first three innings and looks like a viable multi-inning option out of the bullpen for manager Scott Servais thus far.
Machi had his contract purchased from Triple-A Tacoma on Tuesday, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.
Machi worked his way back to the majors after spending all of 2016 in the minor-leagues. The 35-year-old recorded four saves across eight scoreless appearances (eight innings) with Tacoma this season. Given he hasn't posted an ERA under five in the majors since 2014, he'll likely only be used in lower leverage situations.
Machi reported to spring training camp Saturday after being delayed by a visa issue, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.
Machi will take a physical Saturday, but should return to normal spring training activities shortly. The 35-year-old signed a minor league deal with Seattle in January and will likely serve as organizational depth to begin the season.
Machi will be late to camp due to a visa issue, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.
Machi will likely be at camp soon, as it is just a paperwork issue that has kept him away. He signed a minor league deal with Seattle over the winter and will likely open the year in Triple-A as organizational depth.

The veteran reliever spent the 2016 season in Triple-A, splitting time with the Cubs and Giants while accumulating a 3.65 ERA across 61.2 innings in the process. He hasn't pitched in the Majors since 2015, where he struggled to a 5.12 ERA in 58 innings with the Giants and Red Sox. The soon-to-be 35-year-old will likely start the year out in Triple-A and offer organizational depth in the bullpen.
Machi signed a Triple-A deal with San Francisco on Thursday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Machi was released by the Cubs on Thursday and was subsequently arrested that night for public intoxication. The Giants seem comfortable dealing with any potential character issues, however, and signed him to a contract with Triple-A Sacramento. The 34-year-old will head there in the coming days and offer organizational bullpen depth.
Machi was released by the Cubs' organization on Thursday, the Des Moines Register reports.

Machi was reassigned to minor league camp Friday, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.
Machi has had some success at the big-league level, but there were too many mouths to feed in the Cubs' bullpen. He'll likely spend the year on the Iowa-to-Chicago shuttle.
Machi pitched a scoreless inning in a split-squad loss to Kansas City on Monday.
Machi has had an up-and-down career as a reliever. He is probably not going to make the Cubs out of camp, but if he pitches well enough he could see himself in Chicago at times this year.
Machi agreed to a minor league contract with the Cubs that includes an invitation to spring training Sunday, CBS Sports reports.
Machi split time with the Giants and Red Sox last season, and briefly served as Boston's closer, but struggled for much of the year en route to posting a combined 5.12 ERA. His track record the previous two seasons should help give him an extended look in spring training, but it looks as though a major league roster spot is not guaranteed for the 33-year-old.
Machi elected free agency after being outrighted off the 40-man roster Friday, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.
Machi struggled in both San Francisco and Boston last season, posting an ERA above 5.00 in both stops. He briefly served as the Red Sox closer before losing the job, but the 33-year-old's strong 2013 and 2014 campaigns should help him find a bullpen role in the majors again next season.
Red Sox reliever Jean Machi picked up his fourth save of the season on Monday, but it wasn't without drama. Machi entered the ninth inning with the Red Sox up by two. He allowed the first two batters to reach base safely, one of which came around to score.
But Machi was ultimately saved by a terrific catch in right field by Rusney Castillo to end the threat and close out the game, preserving the 4-3 win over the Yankees.
Machi has been scored upon in five of his 14 appearances since joining the Red Sox at the July 31 trade deadline. He is a perfect 4-for-4 in save opportunities, however. Despite Monday's rough outing, manager Torey Lovullo is committed to Machi as his closer for the time being.
