Let’s all hope all of our weekend’s went as well as it did for the Chicago White Sox, as the ball club continued to add to roster with another big potential signing.

On late Saturday night it was reported the White Sox made a deal with free agent left fielder Melky Cabrera for three years. Once this deal does become official just imagine what this team will be capable of next season.

In the article from the official White Sox site by Scott Merkin, he wrote:

"“Cabrera, 30, not only provides the White Sox an upgrade offensively and defensively in left field, but he also fits perfectly into the two spot in the White Sox lineup behind Adam Eaton. He hit .301 with a .351 on-base percentage and a .458 slugging percentage for the Blue Jays in 2014, to go along with 16 homers and 73 RBIs.”"

So that gives Rookie of the Year Jose Abreu protection in from of him with Cabrera and behind him in Adam LaRoche or possibly Avisail Garcia.

Bruce Levine was the reporter who broke the news on Twitter on Saturday night, and in his CBS Chicago article it says the following:

"“The White Sox have taken on close to $145 million in contract obligations in the last five weeks, adding seven new players.”"

As for that above number, that money includes the additions of Jeff Samardzija, Zach Duke, LaRoche, Dan Jennings, Cabrera and David Robertson.

Here is the tweet by Levine that got the Cabrera talk going:

If nothing else, 2015 games for the White Sox will be exciting to watch to say the least.
