Santos get new deal with White Sox

BY foxsports • September 30, 2011

White Sox closer Sergio Santos has agreed to an $8.25-million, three-year contract that includes three club options.

The 28-year-old Santos went 4-5 with 30 saves and a 3.55 ERA in 63 appearances this season. He made a major league-record 25 straight scoreless appearances on the road to start the season from April 2-August 30.

The White Sox announced the deal on Friday.

Santos will receive $1 million next season, $2.75 million in 2013 and $3.75 million in 2014. The options are for $6 million in 2015, $8 million in 2016 and $8.75 million the following season.

Santos also gets $750,000 if the White Sox decline any of the three options.

Chicago acquired Santos in a trade with San Francisco in 2009.
