White Sox will attempt to extend Jeff Samardzija
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The White Sox are expected to try and extend pitcher Jeff Samardzija before he reaches free agency, according to CSNChicago.

The news shouldn't come as a surprise. Samardzija is under control for just one season, but has been adamant about reaching free agency. General manager Rick Hahn said the club will attempt to get Samardzija to sign a long-term deal, but understands these things take time. "I look forward to Jeff getting to know us and know what we are about and understanding how he fits and how he can fit for the foreseeable future," Hahn said.

Samardzija has been quiet about signing a long-term deal, saying he needs to get used to his new organization first. "Long-term deals are all about relationships and the future," Samardzija said. "For me, to be able to be on this team all year and really get to know all the players and what the future holds is exciting."

Samardzija posted a 2.99 ERA over 219 2/3 innings last season.

White Sox acquire Samardzija, Ynoa in six-player deal with A's
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The White Sox announced Tuesday they acquired starting pitcher Jeff Samardzija and starting pitcher prospect Michael Ynoa in a trade with the Athletics. Chicago sent Marcus Semien, Chris Bassitt, Josh Phegley and Rangel Ravelo to Oakland to complete the trade.

Samardzija is coming off his first All-Star season in 2014. He spent most of his seven-year career with the Cubs before being traded to Oakland in July. He is 36-48 with a 3.85 ERA and 1.27 WHIP in 222 career outings (99 starts).

He is in the final year of arbitration, but White Sox general manager Rick Hahn said Tuesday the team will try to sign Samardzija to a contract extension.

"We're going to make every effort in the coming weeks and months to try to make this a long-term relationship," Hahn said.

The 23-year-old Ynoa went 4-2 with a 5.52 ERA in 31 relief appearances for high Class A Stockton in 2014. The former starter is 8-10 with a 4.81 ERA in 70 career appearances (36 starts).
