White Sox's Oscar Colas: Likely to start year in minors
Colas is likely to begin the 2024 season with Triple-A Charlotte, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
Colas earned the starting right field job for the White Sox to begin the 2023 season, though he posted just a 53 wRC+ across 263 plate appearances. He was also demoted to Charlotte from early May to early July, and once again in mid-September. If the 25-year-old returns to the minors to start 2024, Gavin Sheets and the newly signed Kevin Pillar would be the top options in right field, but Colas could still re-establish himself with a big spring....

White Sox's Oscar Colas: Demoted to Triple-A again
The White Sox optioned Colas to Triple-A Charlotte on Monday.
Colas has now been sent down to the minors for the second time this season, as he was also optioned back in early May following a slow start to the campaign. Colas slashed just .219/.253/.331 in 50 games after being recalled in early July and is hitting only .216/.257/.314 overall in his rookie campaign. Gavin Sheets and Trayce Thompson are likely to form a platoon in right field with Colas headed back to Triple-A.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Oscar Colas: Heads to bench
Colas will sit Saturday against the Tigers.
The White Sox's 55-86 record means they have little reason not to give purported pieces of the future like Colas as many at-bats as they can handle down the stretch. The rookie right fielder made 11 consecutive starts prior to Saturday's off day, but his .175/.214/.350 slash line over that stretch has hardly been promising. Trayce Thompson will take a turn in right field in Colas' absence.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Oscar Colas: Blasts homer in win
Colas went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 6-4 win over the Royals.
Colas has just five homers this year, two of which have come in his last seven games. In that span, he's gone 5-for-25 (.200) with six strikeouts and one walk. The 24-year-old outfielder is slashing a meager .218/.260/.315 with 19 RBI, 31 runs scored and four stolen bases over his first 73 major-league games.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Oscar Colas: Smacks fourth homer
Colas went 1-for-4 with a walk, two RBI and two runs scored Wednesday against the Orioles.
Colas has started 21 of 26 games for the White Sox in August, despite his performance being uneven. He did manage three homers and 15 runs scored in that span. On the other hand, he's carried a 27.4 percent strikeout rate and hit just .231. Given that the White Sox aren't playing for positioning in the standings. Colas should continue to get regular run in the final month of the season, and he could emerge as a potential source of power.... See More ... See Less

Colas is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rockies.
The lefty-hitting Colas will take a seat for the second time in the series, with both of his absences coming against right-handed starting pitchers (Peter Lambert and Chris Flexen). Since being called up from Triple-A Charlotte on July 4, Colas hasn't fared much better in the big leagues than he did earlier in the season, when he secured a spot on the Opening Day roster coming out of spring training. He's slashing .215/.248/.299 with two home runs and two stolen bases and is striking out at a 30.7 percent clip over his 32 games since rejoining the White Sox.... See More ... See Less

White Sox's Oscar Colas: Homers in return
Colas went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and an additional run scored Wednesday in a 9-2 win against the Yankees.
Colas missed a couple game due to leg soreness, but he looked strong in his return Wednesday. The rookie outfielder added to Luis Severino's season-long struggles with a two-run shot off the veteran hurler in the second inning. The long ball gave Colas a modest five-game hitting streak, during which he is slashing .316/.350/.632 with two homers, three RBI and six runs scored.... See More ... See Less

White Sox's Oscar Colas: Picks up fourth steal
Colas went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Wednesday's 10-7 loss to the Cubs.
Colas has logged two of his four steals this season over his last three games. The outfielder is still struggling for consistency at the plate -- he's batting .220 (11-for-50) over 15 contests since his recall to the majors July 4, failing to carry over his strong hitting from Triple-A Charlotte. Despite the struggles, he's seeing the bulk of the playing time in right field. Colas has a .214/.246/.270 slash line with one home run, nine RBI and 14 runs scored over 40 major-league games....

White Sox's Oscar Colas: Three-hit day Sunday
Colas went 3-for-5 with a run and a stolen base in Sunday's loss to the Twins.
Colas notched the first three-hit game of his MLB career and stole his first bag since April 8. The 24-year-old is still trying to settle in at the major league level, as he's slashing .233/.227/.279 with two extra-base hits, two RBI, five runs and a 0:16 BB:K in 43 plate appearances since being recalled July 4. Colas has settled in as Chicago's everyday right fielder, but he could be at risk of losing some at-bats when third baseman Yoan Moncada (back) returns from the injured list during the upcoming week. Jake Burger has been one of the Chicago's top bats and could settle in at designated hitter once Moncada is in the fold, perhaps resulting in Eloy Jimenez poaching starts from Colas in right field....
