Jon Heyman of CBS Sports adds that Jose Peraza Scott Schebler and Brandon Dixon will go the Reds, and Frankie Montas, Micah Johnson and Trayce Thompson will go to the Dodgers.
White Sox division rivals, the Royals and Indians, were also after Frazier, but the White Sox get there man. This likely takes them out of the running for David Freese.
The White Sox were largely seen as the offseason winners after the 2014 season, but 2015 did not turn out as they would have liked as they finished with a 76-86 record.
The White Sox also recently acquired Brett Lawrie who they will likely move over to second base. It will still be difficult, however, for the White Sox to compete with the Royals depth.
Frazier hit .255 with 35 home runs in 2015.
