White Sox Sign Gio Gonzalez

The White Sox have agreed to a deal with veteran left-handed pitcher, Gio Gonzalez.

The White Sox have agreed to a deal with veteran left-handed pitcher, Gio Gonzalez, per Robert Murray.

This will be Gonzalez’s third go-around with the White Sox organization, as he was drafted by the club, traded away, and then reacquired at a later date. Despite the frequency of his stints here, he never pitched for the big league club at 35th and Shields.

This move shores up depth at the back of the rotation. Although Gonzalez was hurt last year, he was still a fairly solid arm. He had a 127 ERA+ and 4.04 FIP while being worth 1.7 bWAR in a limited amount of innings. This is a good deal for the Sox that fills a much-needed role on the team.

They still need to acquire additional starting pitching depth, but this is certainly a step in the right direction. Give kudos when it’s warranted.

UPDATE: The signing became official on Friday when the White Sox announced the terms of the deal.

The deal also includes up to $1 million in incentives.
