 CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago White Sox have agreed to a six-year, $68 million deal with Cuban slugger Jose Abreu. The White Sox announced the move on Tuesday, about a week and a half after they reached an agreement.
The 26-year-old Abreu will receive a signing bonus of $10 million and earn $7 million in 2014.
Abreu, who defected over the summer, batted .360 (9-for-25) with three home runs and nine RBIs at the World Baseball Classic last spring. The 6-foot-3, 250-pound Abreu is expected to play either first base or fill the designated hitter role. Abreu can help bolster a White Sox offense that scored the fewest runs in the American League and hit only 148 home runs, tied for third fewest in the AL, en route to a 63-99 record one year after finishing second in the AL Central.
During his 2013 season with Cienfuegos in the the top-level league in Cuba, Abreu hit .316 with 19 home runs and 60 RBI in 83 games.
