The Chicago White Sox have signed shortstop Tim Anderson to a six-year, $25 million contract extension, the team announced Tuesday. 

The deal is a record for a player with less than one year of service time.

Anderson, 23, is scheduled to make $850,000 this season. The contract also allows the team to buy out all of Anderson's arbitration years plus two years of free agency.

Anderson hit .283 with nine home runs and 30 RBIs in 99 games for Chicago last season.

He was drafted with the 17th pick in 2013 by the White Sox and made his major league debut last June.
