Report: Dan Jennings agrees to 1-year, $1.4M deal with White Sox

CHICAGO -- The Chicago White Sox and reliever Dan Jennings have avoided arbitration by agreeing to a $1.4 million, one-year contract, a person familiar with the situation says.

The person spoke Thursday on condition of anonymity because the deal had not been announced. FanRag sports first reported the deal.

Jennings made a career-high 64 appearances last year in his second season with the White Sox, going 4-3 with a 2.08 ERA. His 46 strikeouts matched a personal best set in 2015.

The White Sox finished fourth in the AL Central at 78-84 last year -- their fourth straight losing season. They promoted Rick Renteria from bench coach to replace Robin Ventura as manager and traded ace Chris Sale to Boston and outfielder Adam Eaton to Washington for hefty packages of young players.
