CHICAGO – White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu is getting a raise next year.
Abreu was in line to make $10.5 million on his original contract.
He’ll now take in $10.825 million after agreeing to terms on a one-year deal with the Sox, allowing the team to avoid arbitration.
The 29-year-old slugger batted .293 with 32 doubles, 25 home runs and 100 RBI last year.
Abreu is just the seventh player in league history to record 100-or-more RBI in each of his first three seasons.
