White Sox and INF Brett Lawrie avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $3.5 million contract.
Lawrie will see a massive drop in salary from the $4.125 million that he made in 2016 after hitting just .248/.310/.413 with 12 homers and 36 RBI in 94 games in his first season with the White Sox. Still just 26-years-old, Lawrie is expected to be fully healthy and ready to go for the start of spring training and could represent a nice buy-low opportunity in the late rounds of fantasy drafts.

Brett Lawrie (knee, calf) is currently working out at the team's spring training facility in Arizona.

Lawrie still has his sights set on rejoining the White Sox lineup before the end of the season, though he may have to first log some action in the Instructional League before he's ready to return. He has been sidelined since July 22 due to a left hamstring strain.

MRIs on Brett Lawrie's left knee and calf came back negative.

Brett Lawrie is undergoing more tests in Chicago after reaggravating his quad.

Lawrie was pulled off his rehab assignment and the White Sox aren't sure when he might return to live minor league games, let alone the major league roster. "He hasn’t played enough to make it through a game so there’s something going on there," manager Robin Ventura said Tuesday. Lawrie originally landed on the disabled list July 22 with a left hamstring strain. He's also been dealing with fluid in his knee.
