Report: White Sox, Melky Cabrera agree to three-year deal
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The White Sox have agreed to a three-year deal with outfielder Melky Cabrera pending a physical, 670TheScore.com reports.

The White Sox have been on the radar in the Cabrera market for weeks, as CBSSports.com baseball insider Jon Heyman reported on Nov. 20 that the team was considering pursuing the outfielder. As pointed out in the report, the White Sox managed just a .279 on-base percentage from the No. 2 spot in the batting order last season, a slot that Cabrera is the favorite to now fill.

The Mariners were seen as the favorites to land Cabrera earlier this week and reportedly offered him a three-year deal as well, but the outfielder has apparently chosen to return to the AL Central, where he hit .305/.339/.470 with 18 home runs, 87 RBI, 20 stolen bases and 102 runs with the Royals in 2011. He delivered similar numbers in 2014, hitting .301/.351/.458 in 568 at-bats with the Blue Jays. Cabrera has spent most of the past three seasons in left field, where he'll presumably line up for the White Sox.
