Avisail Garcia, Brett Lawrie sign one-year deals with White Sox

CHICAGO -- The Chicago White Sox have agreed to a $3 million, one-year contract with outfielder Avisail Garcia and a $3.5 million, one-year deal with second baseman Brett Lawrie.

Garcia, 25, hit .245 with 12 home runs, 51 RBIs and 59 runs over 120 games last season.

Lawrie, 26, missed the final 10 weeks because of a hamstring injury and knee pain. He batted .248 with 12 homers, 36 RBIs and 35 runs in 94 games.

Chicago also declined to tender a contract for 2017 to right-handed pitcher Blake Smith on Friday.
