Bonds was only with the team for six weeks and in those days the salary was minimal.

May 16, 1978 - With the Sox record a dismal 9-20 and knowing that there was no way he was going to be able to re-sign him, Sox owner Bill Veeck trades Bobby Bonds to the Rangers for Claudell Washington and Rusty Torres. Bonds would only play in 26 games for the Sox, with two home runs and eight RBI’s. Making matters worse is that to get Bonds the previous December, Veeck traded three players including future All Star Brian Downing.
