In addition to trading for Jeff Samardjiza and signing three big names in Adam LaRoche, David Robertson and Zach Duke, the team landed another big one. Agreeing to terms with outfielder Melky Cabrera, the team took this off season to a whole new level.melky cabrera

According to Brett Levine of 670 The Score, the deal is pending a physical and will total around $45 million a three year deal.

Last season, Cabrera was highly productive as he hit .301 with a .351 OBP and clubbed 16 home runs in 139 games, making it one of his best years to date. His season ended on an right pinkie fracture he suffered after being picked off by Boston Red Sox rookie catcher Christian Vazquez.

2012 however, takes home the title of Melky Cabrera’s best year to date. In 113 games, he smacked 11 home runs and 10 triples. He hit .346 with a .390 OBP and made his sole All-Star appearance of his career but was shut down late in the season when he was suspended for 50 games for use of performance-enhancing drugs. Even though he was eligible to return to the Giants late in the post season, they decided to keep him off the roster and still gave him a ring for his contributions to the team.

For the White Sox, the addition of Cabrera will be huge. He will most likely be the team’s starting left fielder while Adam Eaton mans center field and Dayan Viciedo will see most of his playing time in right field.

Right now, the Chicago White Sox look like they are heading in the right direction for 2015. They have spent a great deal of money this off season, so do not be surprised if they are a highly competitive team this off season. It will be interesting to see what they have in store next.
