MLB free agency is in full swing now that the first major dominoes have fallen. The Chicago White Sox figure to be busy over the next few weeks as they look to retool after missing the playoffs for the first time in three years.

Now Chicago has improved its roster and hurt a division rival in the process.

Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports the White Sox are signing outfielder Victor Reyes to a minor-league contract. He has received a non-roster invitation to spring training as part of the deal.

Chicago will be very familiar with the 28-year-old, who spent each of his first five years in the majors with the Detroit Tigers. Reyes was a solid depth option for Detroit, recording 16 home runs and 107 RBIs from 2018-2022 while slashing .264/.294/.379.

The outfielder played in 92 games for the Tigers this past season and recorded a career-high 34 RBIs. He'll need to work on his plate discipline if he hopes to carve out a role with his new team, however, after posting the most strikeouts (77) in a campaign so far.
