News: Kottaras agreed to a minor league deal with the White Sox on Thursday, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports.
Impact: The 31-year-old will presumably be invited to attend major league camp for spring training, with a chance to compete for the backup job behind Tyler Flowers. Kottaras played for three different teams last season (Indians, Cardinals, Blue Jays), slashing a combined .233/.351/.533 with three homers and five RBI in 18 games. He's just a .215/.326/.411 career hitter at the major league level.

News: Kottaras will become a free agent after being outrighted to Triple-A Buffalo, Sportsnet reports.
Impact: Kottaras is now set to hit the open market, though GM Alex Anthopoulos said the team would like to bring him back. After signing with Toronto in August, Kottaras appeared in just four games with the team, but he went 7-for-30 with three homers in 18 games overall.
