White Sox bring back Miguel Gonzalez for 2018

White Sox bring back Miguel Gonzalez for 2018”

The Chicago White Sox have signed free-agent starting pitcher Miguel Gonzalez to a one-year contract at $4.75 million.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic was the first to report the Gonzalez signing.

Gonzalez was one of the White Sox' most consistent pitchers over the past season and a half up until his trade.

Gonzalez, 33, spent the 2016 season with the White Sox and much of 2017 there before being traded to the Rangers last August. In five starts with the Rangers after the trade Gonzalez pitched to the tune of a 6.45 ERA, clearly the change in scenery hurt him.

His first year in Chicago was solid, as he recorded a 3.73 ERA through 23 starts.

He went on to make his major league debut that ensuing season, going 9-4 with a 3.25 ERA across 18 outings and 15 starts. The veteran pitcher has pitched a total of 268.2 innings with the Sox over the past two seasons and he will be relied upon to provide stability for 2018.

With the addition of Gonzalez, the Sox announced they designated outfielder Jacob May for assignment.

A popular and steady presence in the Sox clubhouse, Gonzalez gives the Sox a veteran in a rotation that includes young starters Lucas Giolito, Reynaldo Lopez, Carlos Rodon and perhaps Carson Fulmer as well as veteran James Shields.
