White Sox sign three-time All-Star infielder to minors contract

The White Sox have signed veteran infielder Mike Moustakas to a minor-league deal. He is in camp as a non-roster invitee for spring training.  

According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, if the Boras Corporation client makes the Opening Day roster, he will be guaranteed a $2 million salary. The arrangement includes an additional $2 million in performance incentives. 

Moustakas will attempt to make his way onto an MLB team for the 14th consecutive season. The left-handed hitter made his Royals debut in 2011 

He was colleagues in Kansas City with Chris Getz, who is now leading baseball operations in Chicago.  

Moustakas had a successful eight-year career with the Royals, collecting two All-Star selections and helping the team win the World Series in 2015. 

Cincinnati released him 75 percent of the way through his contract. Moustakas hit.216/.300/.383 with the Reds while suffering heel and calf issues along the way. 

Cincinnati ate the final $22 million of his contract last season. 

The three-time All-Star signed a minor league contract with the Rockies immediately after being released. 

He made the Opening Day roster and posted a.270/.360/.435 batting line in 47 games.
