Welington Castillo made a profitable move when he declined his $7 million option for 2018 with the Orioles. The catcher has reportedly reached agreement on a two-year deal with the Chicago White Sox for $15 million with an $8 million option for 2020.
News of the agreement was reported by The Athletic and terms of the deal by Yahoo Sports.
Castillo came to the Orioles after he was non-tendered in December 2016 by the Arizona Diamondbacks. He signed a one-year deal for $6 million with the player option.
He hit .282 with a career-high 20 home runs and 53 RBIs in 96 games. Castillo had two stints on the 10-day disabled list.
Caleb Joseph and rookie Chance Sisco are expected to share catching duties for the Orioles in 2018.
