    The Chicago White Sox will add another outfielder to their spring training roster, as Brandon Guyer has reportedly agreed to a minor-league deal with the team.

    Guyer, who spent the last three seasons with the Cleveland Indians, hit seven home runs and drove in 27 RBI last season in 221 plate appearances for the club.

    Dave Ross of Stadium had the deal first, with Fancred’s Jon Heyman confirming the initial report.

    The White Sox will have plenty of competition for Guyer as he tries to make the roster, with Nicky Delmonico, Adam Engel, Leury Garcia, Jon Jay, and Daniel Palka all figuring to have good chances to make the opening day roster. The White Sox will also be welcoming Eloy Jimenez at some point in the early going of the season, likely making Guyer more of an injury insurance policy than a legitimate contender to make a big splash on the roster.

    The White Sox will report to spring training later this month in Glendale, Arizona, with their first spring game slated for Feb. 23.
