It's purportedly going to be worth $13 million per season. After wrapping up a four-year, $56 million deal for Adam Dunn earlier in the week, that adds up to a heavy commitment to heavy hitters by the White Sox. Konerko's return also means Dunn will spend a lot of time as the designated hitter, which is not his preference, but he can just cry himself to sleep on a giant mattress stuffed with money.
Konerko, 34, has played 12 years in Chicago, and is coming off a resurgent season in which he batted .312/.393/.584 with 39 homers and 111 RBI. His .977 OPS was the highest of his career. The Diamondbacks, Orioles and Cubs were reported as having varying levels of interest in him.
