Chicago White Sox sign Yasmani Grandal to 4-year contract

CHICAGO (WLS) -- The Chicago White Sox have signed free agent catcher Yasmani Grandal to a four-year-contract, the team announced Thursday.

The deal is worth $73 million and Grandal will get $18.25 million each season, the White Sox said.




Grandal, 31, had a .246 batting average and .380 on-base percentage with 28 home runs and 77 RBI in 153 games with the Milwaukee Brewers last season. The two-time All Star has played eight MLB seasons with the Brewers, Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres.

The contract is the largest free agent deal in White Sox history, eclipsing the 6-year, $68 million deal signed by Jose Abreu in 2013.
