      White Sox's Matt Albers: Signs one-year, $2.25M contract with White Sox on Thursday

      Albers signed a one-year, $2.25 million deal with the White Sox on Thursday, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports. Albers was with the White Sox last season, but elected for free agency following the conclusion of the World Series. The 33-year-old was very effective out of the bullpen last season, producing an excellent 1.21 ERA and 1.07 WHIP. While his K/9 was an unspectacular 6.8 and he sits in the low-90s with his fastball, he kept the ball on the ground consistently and stranded 94.6% of baserunners. Albers should garner a decent role in the White Sox bullpen after his strong showing last season.

      Matt Albers: Files for free agency

      Albers filed for free agency Monday, the Chicago Tribune reports. Albers was one of four White Sox to file for free agency following the conclusion of the World Series on Sunday. Albers quietly put up a solid season after returning from a finger injury in mid-July, failing to yield a run over the season's final two months. He may never close, but he can be a valuable short-inning cog in a bullpen.
