CHICAGO -- Kosuke Fukudome is joining the Chicago White Sox for a fraction of the price he cost the Cubs four years ago.

The outfielder agreed Tuesday to a one-year contract that guarantees $1 million. He will get a $500,000 salary this year, and the White Sox have a $3.5 million option for 2013 with a $500,000 buyout.

Now 34, Fukodome joined the Cubs for the 2008 season with a $48 million, four-year contract. An All-Star in 2008, he was traded to Cleveland last July 28.
