Report: White Sox Sign Melky Cabrera To Three-Year Contract In $45M Range


Dec 14, 2014

The Chicago White Sox are continuing the Windy City arms race.

The White Sox reportedly signed free-agent outfielder Melky Cabrera to a three-year contract Saturday night, according 670 WSCR-AM in Chicago. The deal could be worth as much as $45 million, according to WSCR’s Bruce Levine, who was the first to report the news.

The team nor Cabrera’s agent confirmed the report to Levine, but Cabrera did retweet a tweet from White Sox outfielder Adam Eaton welcoming Cabrera to the South Side.

Chicago has been the center of the baseball universe this offseason, as the White Sox continue to make moves. The Sox already added starting pitcher Jeff Samardzija in a trade with Oakland and signed free-agent closer David Robertson.

The addition of Cabrera should give the White Sox — who finished 13th last season in Major League Baseball in runs scored — some valuable offensive depth. Cabrera played in 139 games last season for the Toronto Blue Jays, hitting .301 with 16 home runs and 73 RBIs.
