The White Sox made an early Hot Stove splash this morning by announcing a four-year, $73 million contract with free-agent catcher Yasmani Grandal. And, yes, they actually announced the terms in the press release, which is unusual and very much appreciated. It's a terrific pickup for a team on the verge of turning the corner. Grandal is a switch-hitter who frames well behind the dish, one of the few all-around catchers in the game right now.

Odorizzi, Abreu accept $17.8M qualifying offers

Jake Odorizzi, who had a career-high 15 wins and a 3.51 ERA for the Twins last season, and White Sox slugger Jose Abreu, who led the AL with 123 RBIs, have accepted qualifying offers for 2020.

Jeff Passan ESPN 

The White Sox and Jose Abreu have discussed a long-term deal. Abreu, 32, is facing a tough market for aging first basemen — and has a qualifying offer attached to him. Teams already are loath to go in big at that age and position. The QO could make it even tougher.
