Leury García Signs a Three-Year Deal With White Sox

Leury García, the longest-tenured active White Sox player, will stay on the South Side after signing a three-year contract, word leaked out on Tuesday. García is set to earn $16.5 million ($5.5 million AAV) from 2022-24…

García’s flexibility was valuable for the White Sox, who had many position players who suffered long-term injuries in 2021. The supersub-forced-starter finished with a slash line of .267/.335/.376 (98 wRC+) despite an ice-cold April, when he slashed only .207/.220/.241. García redeemed himself throughout the remainder of the season and proved that he deserves playing time in the majors, even for a contending team. When we combine García’s defensive flexibility with his performance at the plate (quite close to league average), we get a player who was worth 2.0 fWAR/2.1bWAR in 126 games.

That's a nice deal from Garcia's perspective.
