Today, the White Sox announced the signing of three returning players -- lefthanded starter John Danks, outfielder Carlos Quentin and righthanded reliever Tony Pena -- to one-year contracts, avoiding arb hearings.

Under terms of the agreements, Danks will receive $6 million in 2011, Quentin $5.05 million and Pena $1.6 million. In addition, today the Sox claimed righthanded pitcher Phil Humber from the Oakland Athletics on waivers, making the total on their 40-man roster 38 players. The Sox have no further arb-eligible players, and in less than four weeks, it's time for players to report and start getting ready for the 2011 season.
