Jose Abreu has opted out of his current contract with the White Sox and will be arbitration-eligible this offseason.
Abreu's contract called for him to be paid $34 million over the next three seasons, but he had the option to go year to year in arbitration instead. He remains under team control through 2019 and will have a chance to make a bit more money through the arbitration process now. Abreu has batted .299/.360/.515 and averaged 30 homers and 103 in his first three seasons with the White Sox. Nov 14 - 4:22 PM

A rival executive told MLB Network's Jon Morosi that the White Sox are more likely to trade Adam Eaton than Jose Abreu at the winter meetings.

The White Sox seem to be in the mode of listening to trade offers for virtually anyone on their roster, but it's not surprising that Eaton appears likelier than Abreu to be dealt. The outfielder should be able to fetch a nice return, as he's a career .284/.357/.414 hitter and is under team control for just $38.4 million through 2021.

Neither player is accused of any wrongdoing. South Florida sports agents Bartolo Hernandez and Julio Estrada have pleaded not guilty on charges of conspiracy and bringing immigrants into the United States illegally. It's alleged that baseball players have paid the smuggling ring more than $15 million to get them out of Cuba. The trial is set for January 3.

Zack Cozart (quad) is out again Thursday.

Cozart made an early exit from Monday's series opener against the Cubs with tightness in his lower right quad and will now miss Thursday's series finale. Eugenio Suarez is starting at shortstop and Jordan Pacheco is playing third base versus Cubs righty Jason Hammel.
