The Dodgers non-tendered reliever Ronald Belisario earlier this week, but it didn’t take him long to find a new home.
According to Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune, Belisario has agreed to a one-year, $3 million contract with the White Sox. He also drew interest from the Angels and Cubs during his brief time on the market.
One of the most surprising non-tenders from this year’s class, Belisario posted a 3.97 ERA and 49/28 K/BB ratio over 68 innings this past season. The 30-year-old right-hander had a 2.54 ERA in 68 appearances last year. The Dodgers might have done him a favor by letting him go, as MLB Trade Rumors projected his salary to rise to $2.3 million via arbitration.
