White Sox Sign Jose Abreu to Three-Year Deal

Jose Abreu will be staying on the South Side for three more years.

Shortly after Jose Abreu accepted a qualifying offer for $17.8 million from the White Sox, the two sides got to work on a longer-term deal. This morning, the club announced that Abreu has agreed to a three-year deal worth $50 million, including a $5 million signing bonus. The breakdown is $11 million for 2020, $16 million for 2021 and $18 million for 2022. $4 million will be deferred.

This is a perfect signing for the Sox, who have now pulled off two stellar moves over the last two days. Abreu is the heart and soul of this team. He’s the only player who has been around throughout the entire rebuild (since 2013). He’s a great clubhouse guy who produces on the field. It’s promising to see the Sox reward him for his success and take some initiative to begin this crucial offseason.

Let’s hope this means the Sox will sign Zack Wheeler tomorrow. 2020 = playoffs?
