The Chicago White Sox are renewing their subscription to one player from last year’s team.

ESPN’s Jeff Passan is reporting Sunday that the White Sox have agreed to a deal with veteran infielder Elvis Andrus, pending a physical. The two-time All-Star Andrus, who was a free agent, will be receiving a one-year contract.

Andrus, who turns 35 this year, signed with the White Sox in the middle of last season after getting DFA’d by the Oakland Athletics. He filled in nicely for injured shortstop Tim Anderson, hitting .271 with nine homers, 28 RBIs, and 11 stolen bases in just 43 games with them. Andrus is now expected to play second base for the Sox now that he is back for Round 2, Passan adds.

It has been a fairly quiet offseason for Chicago (other than the one big free-agent contract that they handed out). But with Andrus returning to a roster full of other steady veterans, the White Sox (under first-year manager Pedro Grifol) will look to build off last year’s 81-81 finish.
