The White Sox have agreed to a $4.75 million, one-year contract with pitcher Miguel Gonzalez and are bringing back the right-hander after trading him late last season. Gonzalez pitched 2016 and most of 2017 with the Sox.

Gonzalez spent the 2017 campaign split between the White Sox and the Texas Rangers, going 8-13 with a 4.62 ERA in 27 starts.

Gonzalez spent almost two full seasons with the Sox before they traded him to the Rangers on August 31 for minor-league infielder Ti'Quan Forbes. Gonzalez then become a staple of the Orioles' starting rotation for four years, serving as a rather reliable starter in 2013 and 2014, posting ERAs of 3.78 and 3.23, respectively, over those two seasons.

The White Sox have brought back a familiar face to add depth to their rotation as needed.

To make room on the 40-man roster, the White Sox designated Jacob May for assignment.

With James Shields likely slated to start Opening Day, Gonzalez could start the White Sox' second game of the season, setting him up to potentially start the April 5th home opener against Detroit.

With the addition of Gonzalez, the Sox starting rotation for 2018 is almost complete. Gonzalez will need to provide valuable innings and consistent outings with the uncertainty surrounding the young arms.
