White Sox To Sign Erstad

Pending a physical, the White Sox will sign center fielder Darin Erstad to a one-year deal with an option.  The Sox don't have much certainty in left or center field, so Erstad will have plenty of opportunity.  The average AL CF hit .275/.334/.437 in '06, which is probably out of Erstad's reach.

Brian Anderson seems to have fallen out of favor with Chicago, leaving Ryan Sweeney as Erstad's main competition in center.  Scott Podsednik is expected to hold down left field again once he recovers from groin surgery, though he'll have to hold off Josh Fields.

To hear PECOTA tell it, the Sox should go with Sweeney and Anderson at the same time above all other options.
