White Sox | Agree with Cuban sensation

The Chicago White Sox agreed to a six-year, $68 million deal with Cuban 1B Jose Abreu Thursday, Oct. 17, which will be the largest free-agent contract given to an international player. Abreu hit .453 with 33 home runs and 93 RBIs in 63 games in the 2010-11 season in Cuba and missed time with a shoulder ailment. He's expected to take over the first base position from 1B Paul Konerko, who is set to become a free agent and may retire. The Texas Rangers, Boston Red Sox, Houston Astros, Miami Marlins and San Francisco Giants were all interested in Abreu.
