CHICAGO (AP) All-Star catcher Yasmani Grandal agreed to a $73 million, four-year contract with the Chicago White Sox, finding a more lucrative free-agent market now that he no longer is burdened by draft-pick compensation.

Grandal will earn $18.25 million annually as part of the deal announced Thursday.

"In addition to what he brings to the field, Yasmani is also a great benefit in the clubhouse," general manager Rick Hahn said in a statement. "We foresee him playing an integral role on both the further development of our young pitchers and the continued improvement of our offense as we reach our championship goals."
