Ynoa agreed to a minor-league deal with the White Sox. Ynoa spent the majority of this year with the big club, tossing 29 innings and posting an ERA of 5.90. He looks to have taken a step back after earning a 3.00 ERA in 2016. The 26-year-old should have a chance to make the major-league roster in spring training, but is more likely to begin the season with Triple-A Charlotte.
Ynoa cleared waivers and was sent outright to Triple-A Charlotte on Saturday. Ynoa was DFA'd on Thursday to clear a roster spot for David Robertson, but will stay within the organization and assume relief duties in the minors. The right-hander has struggled recently with the White Sox, posting a 9.82 ERA over six appearances last month and compounding that by allowing three earned runs over an inning of work against the Rangers last week. He'll have a chance to work out the kinks down in Charlotte, serving as organizational depth for the time being.
The White Sox designated Ynoa for assignment Thursday. The right-hander is sent packing from the 40-man roster to make room for returning closer David Robertson. Ynoa had been saddled with a 5.90 ERA over 22 games for the Pale Hose. He'll await his next destination, whether it be Triple-A Charlotte or another organization.
Ynoa (hip) was reinstated from the 10-day disabled list Thursday. The right-hander has a 4.35 ERA in 16 appearances this season but at least has 19 strikeouts over 20.2 innings. Ynoa should go back to working in middle relief.
Ynoa was placed on the 10-day DL with a right hip flexor strain on Saturday. Injuries continue to mount for the White Sox's pitching staff, as there are now seven MLB pitchers on the disabled list. Righty Brad Goldberg was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte as a corresponding move.
