White Sox make it official: Outfielder Jon Jay agrees to 1-year, $4 million deal

The White Sox made it official Thursday, announcing they agreed to a one-year, $4 million contract with free-agent outfielder Jon Jay.

If the idea is to make Manny Machado’s comfort zone so big he won’t think twice about choosing the 100-loss White Sox over the 100-win Yankees, the Sox may as well go for broke.
