  • White Sox's Mike Moustakas: Invited to White Sox camp

    Moustakas signed a minor-league contract with the White Sox on Wednesday and received an invitation to major-league spring training.

    After a solid start to the season with the Rockies in 2023, Moustakas' production fell sharply upon being traded to the Angels in late June. He slashed just .236/.256/.371 across 250 plate appearances with the Halos. The 35-year-old Moustakas will have a chance to make the White Sox's Opening Day roster, but he would likely be limited to a reserve role with the big-league club.

  • Angels' Mike Moustakas: Smacks three-run homer

    Moustakas went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run and an additional run scored in Friday's 9-7 loss to the Mariners.

He's slashing .270/.336/.451 with 34 RBI, 37 runs scored and 11 doubles over 76 contests between the Rockies and the Angels this season, but his power production has actually increased since leaving Coors Field -- six of his 10 long balls have come in his 29 games as an Angel. Moustakas should continue to see a strong-side platoon role at a minimum at third base.
