The Chicago White Sox have agreed to terms on a one-year, $3.45-million contract with left-handed pitcher John Danks, avoiding arbitration.
Danks, 24, was 13-11 with a 3.77 ERA (84 ER/200.1 IP) and 149 strikeouts in 32 starts last season. He set career highs in wins and IP and limited opponents to a .245 average, fourth-lowest among American League left-handers.
Danks has gone 25-20 with a 3.55 ERA (156 ER/395.1 IP) and 308 strikeouts in 65 starts over the last two seasons combined.
The White Sox have no remaining arbitration-eligible players.
