White Sox signs Emilio Bonifacio to a one year contract

Emilio Bonifacio, the free agent baseball infielder/outfielder, agreed to a US$ 4 million, 1 year contract with Chicago White Sox, reported Jon Paul Morosi (FOX Sports MLB Insider) earlier on Monday.

Emilio, now 29, hit .259/.305/.345 along with 3 homers, twenty-four RBI as well as twenty-six stolen bases for Chicago Cubs as well as Atlanta Braves in the year 2014. He was doled out from the Cubs to Braves on 31st July.

Even though he played mostly in the center field previous season, Emilio also began matches games at the 2nd base, right field, left field and shortstop. Emilio is a .262 career hitter along with hundred-and-sixty-four stolen bases in 8 MLB seasons. He played for teams like Washington, Arizona, Miami, Kansas City, Toronto, Atlanta and the Cubs.

The inclusion of Emilio is the newest move by busy White Sox, who have signed closer David Robertson, right-hander Jeff Samardzija, first baseman Adam LaRoche, reliever Zach Duke as well as outfielder Melky Cabrera earlier in the off-season.

Meanwhile, an insider has suggested that infielder Stephen Drew has signed with New York Yankees. They have already finalized a 1 year, US$ 5 million deal. In fact, Drew will also get $1.5 million in performance incentives from his new team. In the off-season, New York Yankees also secured shortstop Didi Gregorius from the Arizona Diamondbacks.
