Skole was released by the White Sox on Friday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Skole rejoined the White Sox on a minor-league deal in January after making brief appearances for the major-league squad the past two seasons. The 30-year-old hit .248/.384/.497 with 21 home runs for Triple-A Charlotte in 2019, but he'll hit free agency ahead of the shortened 2020 season.
Skole signed with the White Sox as a non-roster invitee Tuesday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Skole recorded a .208 batting average with seven runs and six RBI in 27 games for the White Sox last season before being released to minor-league free agency in October. The veteran designated hitter will get another chance to impress the coaching staff this spring in an attempt to land a spot on the White Sox roster for the third time.
Skole was outrighted to Triple-A Charlotte on Monday in order to be released to minor-league free agency at the end of the World Series. Skole got into just 27 games at the big-league level, hitting just .208/.275/.236. As a 30-year-old with only 93 MLB plate appearances under his belt, he's unlikely to be a coveted asset on the market this winter.
Skole (abdomen) is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against Detroit. Skole hasn't seen the field since leaving Wednesday's game with right abdominal tightness and won't rejoin the starting nine for the season finale.
