CHW All-Star + GG Benintendi Contract Completed The Largest in the Club’s History
The Chicago White Sox have officially signed outfielder Andrew Benintendi.
The White Sox said on its official website and SNS on the 4th (Korea Standard Time), “The club has confirmed five years and $75 million with outfielder Benintendi. The contract includes a $3 million signing bonus and is the largest contract in franchise history,” he announced.
Benintendi was highly anticipated in the first round of the 2015 draft, winning seven nominations overall. After that, he made his big league debut right away in 2016 and secured the starting outfield position for the Boston Red Sox. In 2018, he also contributed to winning the World Series.
However, the batting began to drop sharply in 2019, and in the 2020 season, he played only 14 games due to injury. Boston immediately attempted a trade and moved to Kansas City in a triangular trade with the Kansas City Royals and the New York Mets.
Since then, he has been selected as the first All-Star in his career with Gold Glove for better-than-expected performances, and was traded to the New York Yankees last year. Last season, he batted 0.304 5 home runs, 51 RBIs, 54 points, and 0.772 OPS.
Benintendi, who wore the White Sox uniform for his good performance, received the best treatment in franchise history. The previous best contract was Yasmani Grandal’s four-year, $73 million.
Benintendi is the first White Sox, but ‘MLB.com’ said, “When he was in Kansas City, bench coach Pedro Griffol took over as the White Sox’s manager. In addition, Mike Tosa, a batting coach, is also a field coordinator. “It will greatly help me adapt,” he predicted.
He is expected to play the starting left fielder for the White Sox. The White Sox build an outfield line that leads to Benintendi, Lewis Robert and Gavin Seats 토토사이트
