White Sox set to make LaRoche signing official
Chicago will pay the 35-year-old left-handed hitter a total of $25 million after he batted .259/.362/.455 with 26 homers and 92 RBIs for the Nationals in 2014. He is expected to share time with fellow slugger Jose Abreu at both first and designated hitter.
Rogers adds that the White Sox, who also have signed left-handed reliever Zach Duke this offseason, are “stockpiling” depth at shortstop. That could lead them to trade starter Alexei Ramirez, who is owed $10 million in the final year of his contract.
