The White Sox and right-handed pitcher Michael Kopech have agreed to a $2.05 million deal for 2023 avoiding arbitration, according to Red Sox beat writer Chris Cotillo.

The 26-year-old is finishing his first full season as a starter in the White Sox rotation posting solid numbers marred by a 5-9 win-loss record.

Kopech amassed a 3.54 ERA over 25 starts and 119.1 innings, hitting 105 batters along the way and setting up a WHIP of 1,190.

The strong right-hander has performed well as a reliever in 2021, after two seasons away from baseball due to Tommy John surgery and the COVID-19 pandemic.

Kopech, a first-round pick in 2014, was a prospect in the Red Sox system before being sent to Chicago along with Ioan Moncada and two other prospects in exchange for top-notch southpaw Chris Sale.

Although Kopech ended the season on the injured list with a sore right shoulder, the White Sox are hoping to get the right-hander back in action in time for spring training.
