White Sox agree to terms with 23 players on 2022 contracts

by Joe Binder

Early Wednesday afternoon, the White Sox announced they have agreed to terms with 23 players.

To start off, the club reached one-year deals with outfielder Adam Engel ($2.0 million) and right-handed pitcher Reynaldo Lopez ($2.625 million) for the upcoming season, effectively avoiding arbitration.

In addition to those two, the following reached 2022 contracts:

  • Pitchers (11):
    • Jason Bilous
    • Ryan Burr
    • Dylan Cease
    • Garrett Crochet
    • Matt Foster
    • Michael Kopech
    • Jimmy Lambert
    • Jose Ruiz
    • Anderson Severino
    • Bennett Sousa
    • Jonathan Stiever
  • Catchers (3):
    • Zack Collins
    • Yermin Mercedes
    • Seby Zavala
  • Infielders (4):
    • Jake Burger
    • Romy Gonzalez
    • Danny Mendick
    • Gavin Sheets
  • Outfielders (3):
    • Micker Adolfo
    • Blake Rutherford
    • Andrew Vaughn

With the aforementioned signings, 39 players on the White Sox 40-man roster have agreed to terms for the 2022 season. Lucas Giolito, most notably, will be the lone member heading to an arbitration hearing over minor differences with the organization. The team’s “ace” was rightfully upset about the two sides being unable to settle, and didn’t hold back his emotions in a recent presser.

Tuesday was the deadline for teams and arbitration-eligible players to exchange salary figures for the 2022 season. Though usually much earlier, this year’s deadline was forced back due to the 99-day lockout.

I’m with Giolito, pay the man Sox and get on with the business of trying to win a world series title. Ridiculous
