    CHICAGO (AP) — Jon Jay sees the rebuilding Chicago White Sox
    poised for big things with promising young players. He’s looking forward to
    being a part of it.“It’s a great
    organization Roberto
    Osuna Jersey
    , a great city,” he said.The free agent outfielder and the
    White Sox finalized a $4 million, one-year contract on Thursday.The 33-year-old
    played for Kansas City and Arizona last season, batting .268 with three homers
    and 40 RBIs in 143 games. He also made at least 24 starts at each spot in the
    outfield.The addition gives the White Sox another veteran hitter after they
    struck out 1,594 times last season, tops in the majors. Jay also is friends with
    slugger Manny Machado, one of Chicago’s top targets in free agency.“Manny’s
    going to do what’s best for his family,” Jay said. “That’s going to be up to
    them, privately. I haven’t been involved in any of that. Those are their
    matters. Let’s see how everything shakes out. Obviously, would we love to have
    Manny Machado on the team? Absolutely. The guy is unbelievable. … Who knows what
    is going to happen?”Chicago also acquired Yonder Alonso — Machado’s
    brother-in-law — from Cleveland last month. But general manager Rick Hahn
    insisted the White Sox brought them in because of their attributes, not
    recruiting usefulness.“We feel that they make us better in 2019 and have the
    potential to have a lasting impact on what we’re trying to build for the long
    term,” Hahn said. “I’m not going to get into the relationships they have with
    other players throughout the game. It’s certainly a positive, but it’s by no
    means a reason to make a move to acquire either player.”Jay, a Miami native, is
    a .285 career hitter in nine years in the majors. He made his debut with St.
    Louis in 2010 and helped the crosstown Cubs win the NL Central in 2017.Chicago
    cleared a roster spot for Jay by designating outfielder Charlie Tilson for
    assignment. There’s not much distance between the top three

    reach the topBruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY SportsMake no mistake: there are no
    runaway winners in the AL Central right now. Yes, the Twins are on top, but
    largely because they have not played as many games as the Indians or Tigers. No
    team in the AL Central has more than eight wins at the moment. While they are
    certainly not the worst division in the American League (that nod can go to the
    AL East, where only the Tampa Bay Rays seem interested in a winning season,
    presently), things don’t look great in the Central. Minnesota Twins (8-4)The
    Twins had a remarkably light week this past week, playing only four games total.
    Frst they split their series against the visiting New York Mets, before they
    welcomed the Tigers into town for what was meant to be a three-game series.
    Mother Nature had other plans in mind — as she often does in spring — and the
    Friday game was preemptively cancelled due to impending snow (insert “get a
    dome!” calls here).The Twins “swept” the abbreviated two-game series.This coming
    week will see the Blue Jays come to down for three games, followed by a visit to
    Baltimore to play the Orioles for three games. The Jays have struggled on the
    road significantly this year so far, with a 1-5 record, and the Twins have done
    almost as well at home, winning 4-1. The Orioles, on the other hand have
    struggled at
    home Paul

    , with a 1-6 record, meaning the Twins might be in for a
    very good week ahead. Up Next: vs Blue Jays (3 games); @ Orioles (3
    games)Cleveland Indians (8-7)For a team that seemed poised to easily take the
    division, the Indians have struggled early against their AL competition. This
    past week they faced the Tigers and won the series two games to one, but then
    they headed to Kansas City where they were swept by the Royals in a three-game
    series, including one shutout game. The week ahead won’t offer much kindness.
    First it’ll be a trip to the west coast to face off against the Mariners who
    have no intention of yielding their first place position in the AL West. The
    Mariners are 5-4 at home right now, but the advantage is still theirs with the
    Indians an uninspiring 3-6 on the road. Then they’ll return home to play host to
    the Atlanta Braves for a three-game weekend series. The Braves are 7-3 over
    their last 10 games, but they have faltered a little on the road this season,
    with a 2-3 record. The Indians could take advantage of that. Up Next: @ Mariners
    (3 games); vs Braves (3 games)Detroit Tigers (8-7)The week’s AL Central heavy
    schedule didn’t do the Tigers many favors this week. They dropped two series in
    a row, the first losing two of three to the Indians, and then heading to
    Minneapolis, where the series was shortened by snow and then the Twins won the
    remaining two games. They’ll have a busy week ahead facing their interleague
    rivals the Pittsburgh Pirates for a two-game series. The Pirates are on a
    winning streak, going 7-3 in their last 10 games, but they’re 4-4 on the road,
    so the Tigers might have some luck there. As for the weekend, the Tigers will
    face the White Sox in a four-game series at home. The White Sox aren’t doing
    terribly ,
    but also not awesome, pretty much on-par stats wise with the Tigers over the
    last stretch of games, so it’ll be an opportunity for one of the two clubs to
    potentially push ahead in the standings. Up Next: vs Pirates (2 games); vs White
    Sox (4 games)Chicago White Sox (5-9)Speaking of the White Sox, they had a mixed
    bag of luck against the AL East last week. First they hosted the Tampa Bay Rays
    for a three-game series, and were handily swept by the division leaders. Then
    they visited the Yankees, who were expected to be the division leaders. Not so
    much. The White Sox won that series two games to one. This coming week is all
    about the Central for them as well (sensing a trend here). First they’ll see the
    Royals come to town for a three-game set. The Royals have yet to win a single
    game on the road, so the Sox could be in luck there. Then they’ll head to
    Detroit for the aforementioned four-game series this weekend.Up Next: vs Royals
    (3 games); @ Tigers (4 games)Kansas City Royals (5-10)If the Mariners recent
    visit to Kansas City is any indication of what the Indians can expect this
    week... well... it’s bad. The Mariners swept the Royals in a four-game series
    and were not particularly subtle about it, starting the week off with a 13-5
    victory.The Royals were then swept a second time in a three-game series against
    the Indians. This coming week they’d probably just like to win a game.They’ll
    need to do it either against the White Sox, or when they head to New York to
    play a four-game series against the Yankees. The Yankees are actually only 3-6
    at home right now, so although the Royals haven’t won an away game yet, they
    might have some luck against the Yankees. Up Next: @ White Sox (3 games); @
    Yankees (4 games)
