The Chicago White Sox have welcomed back right-handed starter Miguel Gonzalez on a one-year deal worth $4.75 million, the team announced on Thursday.

“It’s good to be back. The coaching staff, they treated me well. And obviously the players, we had a really good connection,” said Gonzalez during a conference call.

Gonzalez, 33, pitched for the White Sox the previous two seasons, going 12-18 with a 4.02 ERA in 46 games (45 starts). This past year, he was traded to the Texas Rangers on August 31 just prior to the league’s waiver trade deadline, after going 7-10 in 22 starts for Chicago.

“You saw Gonzo pitch very well for us,” said White Sox manager Rick Renteria. “One of the hardest workers, most prepared professionals that I’ve seen in a while. We’re glad to have him. It puts us in a better position to move forward, especially with all the young guys we have.”

In six Major League seasons since 2012, Gonzalez is 52-54 with a 3.95 ERA in 152 games (145 starts). His best years were in 2013-14 for the Baltimore Orioles, as he went 21-17 with a 3.51 ERA in 57 games (54 starts).

“I know we’re rebuilding, but I’m excited for this season. Who knows? We can surprise some people,” added Gonzalez.
