The Chicago White Sox have added some depth while also addressing their hole at second base. Saturday night, the team agreed to a one-year deal with infielder Josh Harrison. The deal includes a club option for 2023. Jon Heyman tweeted out the terms of the agreement.
Harrison split time between the Washington Nationals and Oakland Athletics in 2021. The veteran slashed a .279/.341/.400 line across 505 at-bats. He also added eight home runs and 60 RBIs.
Josh Harrison can fill a glaring hole at second base. Said need was created when the White Sox traded Nick Madrigal to Cubs last season. The Sox still have Craig Kimbrel on the roster for the 2022 season, part of a loaded bullpen.
The veteran also adds depth throughout the field, as he has spent time at 2B, SS, 3B, LF, CF, and RF throughout his career. Harrison is also a two-time All-Star, in 2014 and again in 2017.
He’s also prolific at avoiding the tags, as the video below shows. Finally, a Chicago baseball team can say that about their infielder.
