Sox, Herrera finalize pact for $18M

Print Article

CHICAGO (AP) - Two-time All-Star reliever Kelvin Herrera and the Chicago White Sox have finalized an $18 million, two-year contract.

Herrera will earn $8.5 million in each of the next two years as part of the deal announced Tuesday, and the White Sox have a $10 million option for 2021 with a $1 million buyout.

Herrera was part of a dominant bullpen that helped Kansas City win back-to-back pennants.

The 29-year-old right-hander has a 2.82 ERA and 60 saves over eight seasons with the Royals and Washington. He had a 2.44 ERA with 17 saves in 48 games last year for Kansas City and the Nationals, who acquired him on June 18. Herrera did not pitch after Aug. 26 because of a broken left foot.
