Bruce Levine of 670 The Score is reporting that the White Sox have signed outfielder Melky Cabrera to a three-year deal, pending a physical. The specific terms of the contract are not yet known.

Cabrera had drawn a significant amount of interest from several teams throughout the off-season, even receiving a three-year offer from the Mariners on Friday. The addition of Cabrera is the latest in what has been a busy off-season for the White Sox. They traded for starter Jeff Samardzija and signed closer David Robertson last week, and signed 1B/DH Adam LaRoche in November.
