    • Al Alburquerque: Non-tendered by White Sox
      By RotoWire Staff

      The White Sox declined to tender Alburquerque a contract for 2018, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports. Alburquerque allowed just one run on three hits in eight innings with the White Sox as a September callup, and his numbers over a larger body of work at Triple-A were solid as well (2.87 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, 43:10 K:BB). It's unlikely that Alburquerque will find his way into a prominent major-league role next season, but he should at least find work.

    • White Sox's Al Alburquerque: Promoted to majors
      By RotoWire Staff

      Alburquerque was called up by the White Sox on Friday. Alburquerque will join the 40-man roster, along with Chris Volstad, prior to Friday's game with the Giants, putting the White Sox at full capacity. After signing a minor-league deal with the club in early August, the right-hander has compiled a 4.91 ERA and 1.36 WHIP over the course of 11 innings for Triple-A Charlotte. Alburquerque figures to be deployed in low-leverage situations out of Chicago's bullpen moving forward.

    • Alburquerque signed a minor-league contract with the White Sox on Friday, Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports. Less than a week after being released by the Royals, Alburquerque has found a new home in the White Sox's organization. He will report to Triple-A Charlotte. Once considered a potential future closer during his time with Detroit, Alburquerque has been quite good at the Triple-A level this year, and it's possible he will get a chance with the big-league club later this season.

    • Al Alburquerque: Released by Royals
      By RotoWire Staff

      Alburquerque was officially released by the Royals on Saturday. This move comes just five days after the club designated Alburquerque for assignment. The 31-year-old provided a steady presence out of the bullpen for Kansas City this season, posting a 3.60 ERA and 1.30 WHIP, but the team decided to go in another direction and made deals to acquire more relief depth for a playoff chase.

    • Royals' Al Alburquerque: DFA'd on Monday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Alburquerque was designated for assignment by the Royals on Monday. The Royals made a flurry of moves Monday, topped off by a trade to acquire Brandon Maurer and Ryan Buchter from the Padres, so Alburquerque was no longer needed in the big leagues. Now 31, the right-hander performed reasonably decently during his time in Kansas City, notching a 3.60 ERA and 1.30 WHIP in 10 innings, but he'll have to bide his time in Triple-A if he clears waivers.
