The Chicago White Sox look to be at the end of their long rebuild after an active offseason.
The Chicago White Sox spent last offseason chasing Manny Machado and Bryce Harper only to fall well short of both. This winter of 2019/20 has already proven to be more ruthless for the ChiSox with Yasmani Grandal and Jose Abreu signed long-term.
Yasmani Grandal declined a $16 million mutual option with the Milwaukee Brewers to re-enter free agency after a frustrating offseason in 2018/19.
After the Washington Nationals won its first ever World Series championship in 2019, it’ll be all smiles for now, which the long-suffering franchise deserves at last. However, soon it will be time for free agency and GM Mike Rizzo’s task to remain among the MLB’s elite could prove more difficult than expected.
Third baseman Mike Moustakas was a headline figure in the slow-moving 2017/18 free agency. He’s gone under the radar in 2018/19, but it has been much the same.
Catcher Yasmani Grandal has agreed to a one-year, $18.25 million contract with the Milwaukee Brewers, as reported by Jeff Passan.
