Chicago White Sox starting shortstop Tim Anderson is left with the last option after this season.
Anderson said in an interview with ‘MLB.com’ on the 24th (Korean time), “Now I have the last option left, but I want to know what will happen after that. I am comfortable and happy to be here now. I want to sign a contract quickly and feel comfortable as soon as possible.”
The White Sox exercised Anderson’s $12.5 million club option this season and succeeded in staying. And it leaves a final option of $14 million in 2024. Rumors about an extended contract are circulating.
“I’m not saying, ‘Give me the money,'” Anderson said. I just want to be sure to stay here.”
He was selected by the White Sox in the first round of the 2013 draft. He later made his debut in 2016 and has been the team’s starting shortstop to this day. 슬롯사이트
During the 7 seasons, he had a batting average of 0.288, 97 homers, 313 RBIs, 476 points, 104 steals, and an OPS of 0.759. Last year, due to a torn tendon in his middle finger, he recorded a batting average of 0.301, 6 homers, 25 RBIs, and an OPS of 0.734.
If he doesn’t sign a contract extension this season, his future with the White Sox could be uncertain. ‘MLB Trade Rumors’ predicted, “If a decision is not made by the trade deadline, it may be traded.”
Currently, the White Sox shortstops are re-signed Elvis Andrews and Romy Gonzalez, and the team’s number one prospect Colson Montgomery is at Double-A. Depending on Montgomery’s growth, whether or not Anderson’s contract will be renewed and the size of the contract will all change.
