Sox Re-sign Mark Buehrle

Mark Buehrle is staying with the White Sox.

The left-hander signed a four-year deal today, ending weeks of trade speculation about Chicago's best pitcher.

Fans at today's game were told over the public address system that Buehrle had signed as the White Sox left the field following a 6-3 win over the Minnesota Twins.

In the eighth inning, Buehrle was seen in the dugout hugging manager Ozzie Guillen and his teammates.

Buehrle, a three-time All-Star, could have been a free agent after this season.

Reports earlier said he'd agreed to a four-year, 56 million dollar deal but it hit a snag over a no-trade clause.

With the White Sox struggling this season just two years after winning the World Series, Buehrle's name popped up often in trade rumors.

He is 6-4 this season with a 3.03 ERA.
