The Chicago White Sox would have signed the Venezuelan shortstop, Elvis Andrus, after being released by the Oakland Athletics this week.
According to the ESPN journalist, Jeff Passan, the white-legged have become the new destination of the Venezuelan, with whom he signed this Thursday.
“Shortstop Elvis Andrus is signing with the Chicago White Sox, sources tell ESPN. Andrus approved waivers and he is expected to join the White Sox in Cleveland tomorrow,” Passan said on his Twitter account.
Andrus, 33, was placed on waivers to be traded in the off-season, though they were unsuccessful in the process.
The team decided to release him to raise infielder Sheldon Neuse, who works in the Triple A affiliate.

“They told me, but yes, I am super surprised. Everyone knows that I am an everyday player. So doing this, it's not fun for me… Of course I'm upset, ”Andrus said after his dismissal.
This season, the shortstop has a .237 offensive line with eight home runs and 30 RBIs in 106 games.
