Jeff Samardzija’s agent, Mark Rodgers, said that his client would consider an extension with the White Sox, per MLB Network Radio’s Jim Duquette. Rodgers added Samardzija would want to see “how it is” with the White Sox for half a season first before making a decision.
The White Sox traded with the Athletics to acquire Samardzija in December, sending Marcus Semien and three others to Oakland in the process.
Samardzija, 30, finsihed with an aggregate 2.99 ERA and a 202/43 K/BB ratio in 219 2/3 innings between the Cubs and the Athletics. He can become a free agent after the 2015 season.
