Tommy Pham White Sox deal

The White Sox and veteran outfielder Tommy Pham are nearing an agreement on a Minor League deal, a source told MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand. The club has not confirmed.

Pham, 36, began last season with the Mets and ended it with D-backs, whom he helped make a surprise run all the way to the World Series. Overall, he slashed .256/.328/.446 with 16 home runs and 22 steals in 129 games. He was also very productive in the postseason for Arizona, hitting .429 against the Dodgers in the National League Division Series and .421 with three doubles and a homer against the Rangers in the Fall Classic.

Pham made his MLB debut with the Cardinals in 2014, and he’s also had stints with the Rays, Padres, Reds and Red Sox.

The White Sox have been hit hard by injuries right out of the gate this season, with outfielders Luis Robert Jr. and Eloy Jiménez, as well as third baseman Yoán Moncada all currently sidelined. It’s one of the reasons the South Siders are off to a 2-13 start.

Though the reported agreement is on a Minor League contract, Pham is expected to be called up as soon as he’s had enough at-bats after missing Spring Training.
