Chicago White Sox Sign 15-Year Veteran Second Baseman

He's back.

The Chicago White Sox have reportedly agreed to a one-year, $3 million contract with veteran shortstop Elvis Andrus, according to Jeff Passan of ESPN.
Andrus, who was traded to the Athletics in February 2021 and then to the White Sox in August 2022, is expected to be the White Sox' starting second baseman this season.

The 34-year-old infielder slashed .252/.306/.410 with 17 home runs, 58 RBIs, 18 stolen bases and 66 runs scored over 148 games last season.

Andrus will also provide some additional insurance in case of injury to starting shortstop Tim Anderson, who missed two months of the 2022 season due to a hand injury.

Andrus is entering his 15th major league season, holding a solid .270/.326/.371 triple-slash line, with 96 home runs, 731 RBIs and 335 stolen bases over 1,947 games.

He's spent 12 seasons of his career with the Texas Rangers, two with the Oakland Athletics and one with the White Sox.
