The Chicago White Sox were active in the international market with seven signings, with potentially more to come.

Juan Uribe Jr.

An infamous name among White Sox Fans. Juan Uribe was a key member of the 2005 World Series Champions. This time, the son of the team legend will join the organization. 

Not a lot of information exists about the younger Uribe. Hector Gomez tweeted videos of the Dominican prospect. The existing footage clearly shows the similarities between him and his father.

This is not the first time White Sox fans have heard of Juan Uribe Jr. His dad expressed his desire for his son to play for his old team last winter.  

Luis Reyes

Reports are indicating that the club has agreed to a $700,00 contract with the right-handed pitcher. Reyes is ranked 41st in the Top 50 list of international prospects. The deal is pending a physical, per MLB.com. Reyes has a big fastball and a big frame to go with it. 

The right-hander is 6-foot-3 and still filling out as he matures. Scouts hope that additional size will make him even more powerful. Reyes is considered the 4th best pitcher in the his class and best this year from the Dominican Republic.
