CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago White Sox say they have agreed to a three-year, $12 million contract with infielder Jeff Keppinger.
The team announced the deal Monday after reaching an agreement last week. He is set to earn $3.5 million next season, $4 million in 2014 and $4.5 million in 2015.
Keppinger hit a career-high .325 in 115 games with Tampa Bay last season. He made 41 starts at third base, 23 at second, 21 at first and 19 as the designated hitter. He is expected to play third for the White Sox. Kevin Youkilis finished last season there for Chicago and became a free agent.
Keppinger is a career .288 hitter over eight seasons with the New York Mets, Kansas City, Cincinnati, Houston, San Francisco and Tampa Bay.
