      White Sox's Nomar Mazara: Makes adjustments

      Chicago White Sox hitting coach Frank Menechino guided Nomar Mazara through changes to his hand positioning in his swing, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.The changes started in spring training and continued into summer camp. The goal is to minimize the movement as Mazara begins his swing. "Don't try to go all crazy in the batter's box and just keep it simple, because I'm a big guy with long arms," the 6-foot-4, 215-pound Mazara said. "If I go all the way around, I have no chance with guys throwing 98 [MPH] with movement. Make it simple as possible." Mazara showed off the new swing during Saturday's intrasquad game, when he fouled off three pitches against left-hander Carlos Rodon before rapping a single to center. The lefty-hitting outfielder has a history of struggles against left-handed pitching, which prompted the notion that Mazara might be better in a platoon, but the White Sox believe in him as an everyday player.

      White Sox's Nomar Mazara: Pegged as primary right fielder

      Nomar Mazara will get the chance to prove he's an everyday right fielder early in the season, Vinny Duber of NBC Sports Chicago reports.The question of Mazara playing every day is based on the left-handed hitting outfielder's history against left-handed pitching. He's compiled a .231/.272/.361 slash line over four seasons in MLB, suggesting a platoon could be a possibility. "He'll be out there the bulk of the time, obviously," Chicago White Sox general manager Rick Hahn said. "Historically he's had some struggles against lefties, but he's now going to get the opportunity, at least early on, to show what he's capable of doing." It looks like Mazara will get the chance early on against both lefties and righties, but if he's overmatched by southpaws, the White Sox have Leury Garcia or Adam Engel to potentially serve as part of a platoon.

      White Sox's Nomar Mazara: Avoids arbitration with White Sox

      Nomar Mazara signed a one-year, $5.56 million deal with the Chicago White Sox on Friday, avoiding arbitration, freelance baseball writer Robert Murray reports.The 24-year-old was traded from the Rangers to the White Sox exactly one month ago, and he's now officially under contract for 2020 with his new team. Mazara had an up-and-down 2019 season while dealing with multiple injuries and posted a .268/.318/.469 slash line with 19 home runs and 66 RBI in 116 games. He could end up being a platoon option if he's unable to improve his numbers against southpaws (.646 OPS last season).

      White Sox's Nomar Mazara: Shipped to White Sox

      The Rangers agreed to trade Nomar Mazara to the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.Mazara endured an up-and-down 2019 campaign with multiple injuries but will now get a fresh start in Chicago. The 24-year-old had a .268/.318/.469 slash line with 19 home runs and 66 RBI in 116 games, but his outfield defense continues to be subpar. Mazara should be an option in right field and at designated hitter as the White Sox attempt a push toward contention in the AL Central, having also added Yasmani Grandal this offeason. According to T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com, minor-league outfielder Steele Walker is heading back to the Rangers in the deal.

      Rangers' Nomar Mazara: Doubtful to play this weekend

      Nomar Mazara (thumb) is doubtful to play against the Yankees this weekend, TR Sullivan of MLB.com reports.Mazara had tried to play through an oblique injury during September but had been limited. That injury prevented him from playing consecutive days, and now he hasn't played since Sept. 22 due to the thumb. While the Texas Rangers haven't declared he's being shut down, it appears unlikely he'll play at all in the final series of the regular season. Mazara is hitting .268/.318/.469 with 19 home runs, one shy of a fourth straight 20-homer season.

      Rangers' Nomar Mazara: Dealing with thumb injury

      Nomar Mazara aggravated his right thumb, which is why he was scratched from Tuesday's lineup against the Red Sox, Jeff Wilson of the Forth Worth Star-Telegram reports.This is the same injury that cost him 26 games in 2018. He aggravated it Sunday but stayed in the game and managed to hit a home run. However, he couldn't even get his glove on his right hand Tuesday, so he is clearly dealing with significant swelling. It sounds like he is day-to-day but is running out of time to return this season.
