SHARE White Sox agree to terms with Noesi, Jones, Guerra

The White Sox agreed to terms on one-year contracts with right-handers Javy Guerra, Nate Jones and Hector Noesi, avoiding arbitration.

Noesi signed for $1.95 million, Guerra for $937,500 and Jones for $660,000.

Noesi, 28, was a combined 8-12 with a 4.75 ERA in a career-high 33 games including 27 starts between the White Sox, Rangers and Mariners last season.

Guerra, 29, went 2-4 with a 2.91 ERA and one save in 42 relief appearances in his first season with the Sox.

Jones, 29, is recovering from Tommy John surgery and isn’t expected back till the All-Star break at the earliest. He was expected to contend for a closer’s role last spring but appeared in two games due to hip and elbow injuries last season and is 12-5 with a 3.55 ERA over three seasons with the Sox.

Right-hander Jeff Samardzija and catcher Tyler Flowers are the Sox’ last two arbitration-eligible players.
