Top Oscar Colas News

  • White Sox's Oscar Colas: May not start Opening Day

    White Sox manager Pedro Grifol told reporters Wednesday that Colas will "play a lot" in the early part of the season, but he may not be in the lineup for Opening Day on Thursday against the Astros, Scott Merkin of reports.

    Grifol said that it will either be Colas, Eloy Jimenez or Romy Gonzalez that gets the start against the Astros on Thursday. The rookie outfielder has been informed he'll be part of the Opening Day roster for the White Sox, and it's possible Chicago will try and ease him into the lineup with tough left-hander Framber Valdez on the mound for the Astros.

  • White Sox's Oscar Colas: Expected to make Opening Day roster

    The White Sox have informed Colas that he'll make the Opening Day roster, Francys Romero of reports.

    Colas made his affiliated debut last season and played just seven games at the Triple-A level, but he performed well in big-league spring training this year, slashing .270/.281/.444 with three homers, eight runs, six RBI and a stolen base over 26 Cactus League games. The 24-year-old will presumably begin the year as Chicago's starting right fielder, but it's also possible Gavin Sheets pushes for some playing time early on if Colas experiences some growing pains in his first taste of major-league action.

  • White Sox's Oscar Colas: Power emerging

    Colas went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's Cactus League game against the Angels.

    Colas has been impressive throughout spring training, though it took some time for him to hit for power. However, he now has two home runs across his last two starts and continues to push for the starting job in right field to begin the season. Across 30 at-bats in the Cactus League, Colas is hitting .400/.419/.633 with only one strikeout.

  • White Sox's Oscar Colas: Keeps hitting

    Colas has gone 9-for-21 with one RBI and three runs scored across 10 Cactus League games.

    Colas is battling for the starting right field job this spring and is making a strong case to start the year in the majors. In addition to the impressive batting average, he has struck out only once -- a notable development after he struck out at a 24 percent clip across 225 plate appearances with Double-A Birmingham in 2022. The one downside to Colas' spring training performance is that he has only one extra-base hit.

  • White Sox's Oscar Colas: Hot start to spring training

    Colas has gone 5-for-11 with one run scored and one RBI through five games of Cactus League action.

    Colas has a chance to win the starting right field job with a strong spring, and he's seemingly taken a step in that direction with his early performance. While he has yet to tally an extra-base hit, he has struck out only once across 11 plate appearances. Colas' primary competition for a job with the big-league club is Gavin Sheets, who posted a .706 OPS across 410 plate appearances in 2022.

  • White Sox's Oscar Colas: Will have chance to win RF job

    White Sox manager Pedro Grifol said in a radio interview with 670 The Score Saturday that Colas will be giving an opportunity to become the starting right fielder.

    Colas is one of the top prospects in Chicago's system, and is coming off a 2022 campaign where he forged a slash line of .314/.371/.524 with 23 home runs over three different levels. He'll compete with players like Gavin Sheets and Jake Marisnick for the starting gig, but even if he begins the season with Triple-A Charlotte, it's only a matter of time before he's playing every day with the White Sox. Colas will be worth late-round consideration in a variety of formats, but there's obvious risk as a rookie that comes with the potential reward.

  • White Sox's Oscar Colas: Bumped up to Triple-A

    The White Sox promoted Colas from Double-A Birmingham to Triple-A Charlotte on Sunday, baseball journalist Francys Romero reports.

    With Birmingham's season coming to an end Sunday, Colas will head to Triple-A to pick up some more plate appearances to close out his first year in affiliated ball. Charlotte marks the third stop of the season for Colas, who slashed .309/.367/.516 with 47 extra-base hits between stints at Double-A and High-A Winston-Salem.

  • White Sox's Oscar Colas: Cleared to play Sunday

    Colas (neck) started in center field and went 1-for-3 with a walk and a run scored Sunday in Double-A Birmingham's 8-5 loss to Tennessee on Sunday.

    Colas missed only one game after he exited Friday's 3-2 loss to Tennessee after being hit in the neck by a pitch. Since receiving a promotion from High-A Winston-Salem on July 12, the 23-year-old outfielder has produced a monstrous 1.273 OPS in his first 11 games with Birmingham.

  • White Sox's Oscar Colas: Hit by pitch Friday

    Colas was removed from Friday's game at Double-A Birmingham as a precautionary measure after he was hit in the neck by a pitch, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    Colas tested negative for a concussion after leaving Friday's matchup and is being further evaluated Saturday. The 23-year-old has slashed .395/.465/.842 with five home runs, 11 runs scored and 11 RBI over 10 games since being promoted to Birmingham, and it's not yet clear whether his injury will force him to miss additional time.

  • White Sox's Oscar Colas: Bumped up to Double-A

    The White Sox promoted Colas from High-A Winston-Salem to Double-A Birmingham on Tuesday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    Colas will get a few games under his belt at Double-A prior to the All-Star break before likely spending most of the second half of the minor-league season in Birmingham. The 23-year-old outfielder from Cuba, who signed a $2.7 million deal with the White Sox in January, hit .311 with 23 extra-base hits in 268 plate appearances for Winston-Salem.

  • White Sox's Oscar Colas: Returns to action at High-A

    Colas (wrist) went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a walk and an additional run in his return from the 7-day injured list Sunday in High-A Winston-Salem's 5-1 win over Rome.

    Back in action for the first time in two and a half weeks, Colas picked up right where he left off prior to suffering the wrist injury. The 23-year-old outfielder is now slashing .312/.376/.519 in his first season of affiliated ball and could soon be in store for a promotion to Double-A Birmingham.

  • White Sox's Oscar Colas: Shelved with wrist injury

    High-A Winston-Salem placed Colas on its 7-day injured list Wednesday due to a wrist injury, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    According to Winston-Salem manager Lorenzo Bundy, the wrist issue had been bothering Colas since the 23-year-old last appeared in the lineup April 28. Bundy is optimistic that Colas will be ready to return early next week, so the outfielder doesn't look as though he's in danger of a long-term absence. Thus far during his first season in affiliated ball, Colas is slashing .301/.363/.479 with two home runs in 80 plate appearances.
