The White Sox continued their long-time trend of identifying and extending key young players to (possible) team-friendly extensions. Like Luis Robert, Eloy Jimenez, Tim Anderson, and many others, the White Sox signed Aaron Bummer to an extension on Saturday morning. The 26-year-old Bummer agreed to a deal worth $16 million with two club options that could give the team control through the 2026 season.

Bummer was one of the bright spots in a developmentally key season for the White Sox rebuild. He was one of the most dominant relievers in the league and arguably the best left-handed reliever in the American League last season.

In the 2019 campaign, Bummer looked like the second coming of Baltimore’s version of Zack Britton, posting a 2.13 ERA in 67.2 innings with a WHIP less than one. If Bummer continues his production from last year, this is beyond a steal for a team that has given another example on how to lock up young talent.
