The White Sox signed outfielder Peter Bourjos to a minor league deal with an invitation to Spring Training, according to Colleen Kane of The Chicago Tribune.
Bourjos, 30, didn’t have much success with the Phillies last season, hitting .251/.292/.389 with five home runs and 23 RBIs. Still, with a productive spring, Bourjos should be able to earn a spot on Chicago’s roster.
A career .243 hitter, Bourjos has proven to be a plus defender and could be a versatile piece for the White Sox.
Here is the latest from around the American League Central:
- The Indians signed Austin Jackson to a minors deal, and there is reason to believe he will perform notably well.
- Daniel Norris changed his delivery in 2016, and that should only prove to be beneficial entering 2017.
- Former Royal Greg Holland joined the Rockies, but it didn’t seem the Royals were that interested in re-signing him anyway.
- For some, a Jose Quintana trade can’t come soon enough because of the state of the team’s farm system.
- The Twins might be the real winners of the Rays/Dodgers trade because now, they could keep Brian Dozier on the roster.
