CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago White Sox answered
one of their offseason questions on Friday , agreeing to a $2.5 million, one-year contract with catcher James McCann.The White Sox had an opening at the position after trading Omar Narvaez to Seattle on Nov. 30 for reliever Alex Colome. They also lost Kevan Smith when he was claimed off waivers by the Los Angeles Angels in October.Zack Collins and Seby Zavala are coming up through the minors, but the addition of McCann allows the White Sox to move slowly with the catching prospects. They also have Welington Castillo on their major league roster.A person with direct knowledge of the situation confirmed to The Associated Press the deal for McCann on condition of anonymity because the contract is pending a physical. Yahoo Sports first reported the agreement.The 28-year-old McCann hit .220 with eight homers and 39 RBIs in 118 games last season with Detroit. The rebuilding Tigers didn’t offer him a contract for the 2019 season Zack Greinke Jersey , making him a free agent.McCann was selected by the White Sox in the 31st round of the 2008 draft, but he decided to go to the University of Arkansas instead. He then was drafted by the Tigers in the second round in 2011.McCann made his major league debut in September 2014 and spent his first five seasons with Detroit, batting .240 with 40 homers and 177 RBIs in 452 games. He set career highs with 13 homers and 49 RBIs in 2017. Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig's home was the target of a burglary earlier this week.Per TMZ Sports Paul Goldschmidt Jersey , two men attempted to break into Puig's house in San Fernando Valley on Thursday when his Ring security device went off on his cell phone and he was able to yell at them to get them to run away from the scene.TMZ added this marks the third time since March 2017 that burglars have made their way to Puig's home.In March 2017, police officials told reporters more than $170,000 in jewelry and other items were taken from Puig's home.Shortly after Game 7 of the 2017 World Series against the Houston Astros last November , a man broke into the house and stole costume jewelry that carried a value of $150.Mark David of Variety reported the Dodgers All-Star purchased his house in San Fernando Valley in October 2014. He also bought another place in Encino, California, three years later.TMZ noted there aren't any suspects in the latest attempted burglary at Puig's house.The 27-year-old Puig is in his sixth season with the Dodgers. He was named to the National League All-Star team in 2014.
