The Chicago White Sox have signed relief pitcher Zach Duke to a three-year contract.
Duke will earn $15 million over the course of the deal after joining the Milwaukee Brewers as a non-roster invitee last offseason.
In 58 2/3 innings of work last year with the Brewers he posted a 2.45 ERA and 74/17 K/BB ratio. He will now try to put up those same numbers for the White Sox.
The contract is a lot to pay for a left hander who has been up and down in the last handful of seasons. The White Sox are currently entertaining offers for shortstop Alexei Ramirez with the Dodgers pressing hard currently.
