White Sox, Dye have $22M deal in place

The White Sox have reached agreement with right fielder Jermaine Dye on a two-year, $22 million contract extension, has learned.

The deal will include a mutual option for a third season.

Dye, 33, would be the second potential free agent to remain with the White Sox at a below-market rate, joining left-hander Mark Buerhle, who agreed to a four-year, $56 million extension at the All-Star break.

After batting only .214 before the All-Star Game, Dye has rebounded to hit .311 since the break with 12 homers in 122 at-bats.

The White Sox discussed trading Dye to the Red Sox before the July 31 non-waiver deadline, but the two sides could not come to an agreement.

Dye, the 2005 World Series MVP, had a career year in 2006, hitting .315 with 44 HRs and 120 RBIs. He was fifth in AL MVP voting.

Despite the dropoff in batting average in 2007, Dye is tied for fourth in the American League with 24 HRs.
