Inked to a comeback: Burks re-set his career on the South Side, then found glory in Colorado. (@KnightsBaseball)
The White Sox signed oft-injured outfielder Ellis Burks to a one-year contract. Burks would have a breakout season in 1993 with 17 homers, 71 RBIs and a .275 batting average in the divisional championship season. He’d catch the final out to clinch the division title that season as well. Unfortunately, GM Ron Schueler wouldn’t give Burks the multi-year deal he was looking for when the season ended, and the outfielder left for Colorado and became an All-Star.
