Abreu became eligible for arbitration after opting out of the final three years of a six-year, $68 million deal he signed prior to the 2014 season. He made that move earlier in the off-season, which also making him a possible trade candidate.
The 29-year-old hit .293 with 25 home runs and 100 RBIs last season, as he got hot after a slow start to the year. In his three seasons with Chicago, he has a .299 career average with 91 big flies.
Chicago was one of a few teams expected to make a lot moves this off-season. The likes of Todd Frazier, Jose Quintana, and Melky Cabrera have been rumored to be on the move, and as we've already seen this winter, the White Sox aren't afraid to strike the deals.
