CHICAGO (AP) — Free-agent catcher Welington Castillo agreed Friday to a $15 million, two-year contract with the Chicago White Sox, who avoided arbitration with right-hander Danny Farquhar by reaching a $1.05 million, one-year deal.
The 30-year-old Castillo will make $7.25 million in each of the next two years, and the White Sox have for $8 million for 2020 with a $500,000 buyout.
Castillo, who broke into the majors with the crosstown Cubs in 2010, hit .282 with 20 homers and 53 RBIs in 96 games with Baltimore last season. He also threw out 24 of 49 would-be base stealers for a major league-best 49 percent success rate.
“Adding Welington benefits us both in the short and long term,” general manager Rick Hahn said in a statement.
