Veteran right-hander Freddy Garcia will be back with the White Sox next year, according to a report on ESPN Chicago.

Garcia went 3-4 with a 4.34 ERA for the South Siders after being picked up in June as a free agent. Next year’s contract would be for $1 million in base salary with another $2 million in incentives.

Prior to being traded in 2007, Garcia compiled a 40-21 record with the White Sox and was a vital part of the 2005 World Series championship, winning the clinching game in Houston.

On Saturday, the 33-year-old threw seven innings of one-run ball against the Detroit Tigers, notching a season-high seven strikeouts.
