The Chicago White Sox signed shortstop Elvis Andrus to a contract for the remainder of the 2022 season Friday.

Chicago optioned rookie infielder Lenyn Sosa to Triple-A Charlotte in a corresponding roster move to clear space for Andrus on the roster.

The Oakland Athletics released Andrus earlier this week after the two-time All-Star posted a .673 OPS in 106 games this season.

The White Sox will likely turn to Andrus at shortstop while All-Star Tim Anderson is on the shelf for an extended period after undergoing surgery for a torn tendon in his finger.

Andrus owns a career .270/.326/.369 slash line with 87 home runs, 703 RBIs, and 324 stolen bases across 1,904 contests.
