GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Chicago White Sox came to contracts terms with 25 players for the upcoming season, including projected starting position players Dayan Viciedo and Tyler Flowers.

Also coming to an agreement on a deal was closer Addison Reed and starter Chris Sale.

All the players who reached agreements Friday are those on the 40-man roster and are still in the early part of their careers and under team control. All players on the White Sox’s 40-man roster are now under contract.
