White Sox's Welington Castillo: Inks deal with White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castillo signed a two-year, $15 million contract with the White Sox on Friday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

This agreement comes with a club option for a third year worth $8 million, and will give Castillo a little more security after declining a $7 million option from Baltimore in November. During the 2017 season, the backstop slashed .282/.323/.490 with a career-high 20 home runs, and 53 RBI. The 30-year-old will likely slide into a starting role with Chicago, as Kevan Smith serves as his backup.

Welington Castillo: Opts to become free agent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Castillo turned down his $7 million option for the 2018 season on Monday and will become a free agent, Jon Heyman of FanRagSports.com reports.

After hitting .282/.323/.490 with 20 home runs and 53 RBI games in 2017, Castillo is set to hit the free agency market for the upcoming season. Castillo battled miscellaneous injuries and shared quite a bit of time behind the dish with Caleb Joseph last season. As a result, he played in 96 games, a significant decline from 2016's mark of 113 games. However, this didn't stop him from being productive. His 20 home runs were a career-high, and he surpassed the 50 RBI mark for the third consecutive year.
