(SportsNetwork.com) – The Chicago White Sox and utilityman Emilio Bonifacio
have reportedly agreed to a one-year contract.
According to FOXSports.com, the deal is worth $4 million.
Bonifacio spent 2014 with the Cubs and Braves, finishing the campaign with a
.259 batting average, 17 doubles, three homers and 24 runs batted in over a
combined 110 games.
The 29-year-old Dominican native will give the White Sox versatility, having
played all three outfield positions as well as second base, shortstop and
third base in his eight-year big league career.
Bonifacio is a career .262 hitter in 722 games with Arizona, Washington,
Miami, Toronto, Kansas City, the Cubs and Braves.

LaRoche and outfielder Melky Cabrera.
