    The Chicago White Sox have agreed to terms with four arbitration-eligible players on contracts, including first baseman Jose Abreu.

    The team announced the signings on Friday afternoon, and the squad will not have to go to arbitration with any of their players this offseason.

    Abreu agreed to a one-year deal that will pay him $16 million in the coming season. The first baseman hit 22 home runs and drove in 78 RBI last season, and was named to the MLB All-Star Game for the second time in his career.

    The White Sox also agreed to a one-year, $7.325 million deal with relief pitcher Alex Colome, a $4.2 million pact with pitcher Carlos Rodon, and a $4.625 million deal with infielder Yolmer Sanchez.

    The team had previously agreed to a contract with outfielder Leury Garcia.
