Robertson and White Sox finalize $46 million deal
SAN DIEGO (AP) — Closer David Robertson and the Chicago White Sox have finalized a $46 million, four-year contract.
The right-hander, who turns 30 in April, gets $10 million next year, $11 million in 2016, $12 million in 2017 and $13 million in 2018 under the agreement announced Wednesday.
He was 4-5 with a 3.08 ERA and 39 saves this year, when he took over as the New York Yankees’ closer following Mariano Rivera’s retirement.
White Sox general manager Rick Hahn says “David fills an immediate need in the back end of our bullpen, and we feel he will be an important piece to our pitching staff for the next four seasons.”
