  • 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: 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.

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.
