The 2011 Chicago White Sox season was the club's 112th season in Chicago and 111th in the American League. The 2011 White Sox schedule was revealed at 7:00 pm CT on September 14, 2010[1] along with every other team in Major League Baseball.

Offseason[edit]

On December 2, 2010 the White Sox signed a new slugger Adam Dunn from the Washington Nationals for a 4yr/$56M contract.[2] On that same day, the Sox also re-signed A. J. Pierzynski to a 2yr/$8M extension.[3] Six days later, the Sox resigned Paul Konerko to a 3yr/$37.5M extension.[4] With Dunn, Konerko, and Pierzynski, there is a 5% chance that the White Sox will win the 2011 World Series.[4] On December 15, the White Sox acquired RHP Jesse Crain from the Minnesota Twins and offered a 3yr/$13M deal.[5] On January 18, the Sox acquired RHP Philip Humber off waivers from the Oakland A's. One month prior, the A's claimed Humber from the Kansas City Royals.[6]

In addition to acquisitions, the White Sox also traded away some players, including Scott Linebrink to Atlanta Braves on December 3,[7] and J. J. Putz to Arizona Diamondbacks on December 7.[8] Bobby Jenks, who was non-tendered by the White Sox, has agreed to sign with the Boston Red Sox on December 16.[9]
