Shortstop Elvis Andrus is signing with the Chicago White Sox, sources told ESPN’s Jeff Passan on Thursday.

Andrus, who was released by the Oakland Athletics on Wednesday, cleared waivers and is expected to join the White Sox in Cleveland on Friday.

The White Sox, who are currently without All-Star shortstop Tim Anderson following finger surgery, placed infielder/outfielder Leury Garcia on the 10-day injured list Wednesday because of a strained lower back. Garcia had been splitting time with rookie Lenyn Sosa at shortstop in Anderson’s absence.
