White Sox Bring Back Miguel Gonzalez On One-Year Deal

While the eerily passive offseason continues, the White Sox remain active, albeit in a modest fashion appropriate for their situation.  On Wednesday, Miguel Gonzalez agreed to return to the South Side on a one-year, $4.75 million contract.  After pouncing on Gonzalez once Baltimore put him on waivers in 2016, he and Don Cooper gelled marvelously and […]
