Jerry Sands: Heads to Atlantic League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sands signed with the Somerset Patriots of the Atlantic League on Monday, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports.

Sands leaves MLB after failing to land a spring training invite this offseason. He spent 2016 in the White Sox organization, hitting .236 with seven RBI in just 24 major league games. The utility man has been relatively ineffective over five seasons, posting a career batting average of .238.

White Sox's Jerry Sands: Receives outright to Triple-A Charlotte
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sands was outrighted to Triple-A Charlotte on Friday, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Sands was designated for assignment on June 7, making him available to be picked up by another organization but no team made a move on him. As a result, he'll remain with the White Sox but will be removed from the 40-man roster. The 28-year-old will likely remain at the Triple-A level until the White Sox are in need of additional outfield depth.

White Sox's Jerry Sands: Designated for assignment Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sands was designated for assignment Tuesday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Sands had mostly been relegated to pinch-hitting duties, as he's tallied just one hit since May 21. He'll clear room on the roster for James Shields, who was officially added to the major league roster Tuesday after last week's trade.

White Sox's Jerry Sands: Will start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sands is in the lineup and batting fifth for Thursday's game against the Royals.

Sands will get the start at DH while Avisail Garcia takes Adam Eaton's place in right field. The 28-year-old is hitting .250 with one home run and six RBI in 18 games this season.

White Sox's Jerry Sands: Starting, batting seventh Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sands will serve as the designated hitter and bat seventh Saturday against the Orioles.

With Avisail Garcia out Saturday with a hamstring injury, Sands will step in for his sixth start of the season. Sands hasn't done a whole lot in his limited opportunities so far, but he does have a home run, and more at-bats should be available for as long as Garcia remains sidelined.

White Sox's Jerry Sands: Homers in first 2016 start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sands went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer and three strikeouts in Wednesday's win over Minnesota.

Getting his first start of the year, Sands teased his enticing power potential with a bomb to deep center, but displayed his painful lack of contact skills in every other at-bat. While Sands can slot in at a few different positions -- first base, left field, right field, DH -- those spots are pretty well accounted for on the South Side. That leaves the 28-year-old slugger with only the occasional fill-in start.

White Sox's Jerry Sands: Starting at designated hitter Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sands will bat seventh as the designated hitter on Wednesday against the Twins, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Sands has only gotten one at-bat this season in his first year with the White Sox. The 28-year-old hit for a .236/.286/.390 slash line in 50 games with the Indians last year, but is unlikely to see too much playing time this season. He replaces Avisail Garcia in the lineup.

White Sox's Jerry Sands: Makes Whitesox Opening Day Roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sands has made the White Sox Opening Day roster, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Sands has batted .188 (9-for-48) this spring along with three homers, nine runs, and nine RBI. Last year with Cleveland, he played 50 games and compiled a .236 average with 11 runs and 19 RBI over 123 at-bats. Given his experience at first base and in the outfield, he could play multiple roles for the White Sox this year, possibly filling in for Jose Abreu when he needs an off day or replacing Austin Jackson or Adam Eaton late in games.

White Sox's Jerry Sands: Could make MLB roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sands in the mix for the White Sox's final roster spot, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Sands has shown his characteristic power this spring (his first in the White Sox organization), but he has also shown his characteristic strikeout tendencies. Still, the White Sox are in need of some bench power, and he could fit the bill.

White Sox's Jerry Sands: Hits two home runs in win Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sands hit two home runs in Sunday's spring win over the A's.

The home runs were Sands' second and third in 32 at-bats this spring, but he has gotten on base at a below-average rate (.265 OBP) in his first White Sox camp. Sands entered camp with little chance of making the big league club, but he may now be on the bubble of an Adam LaRoche-less roster.

White Sox's Jerry Sands: Claimed by White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sands was claimed off waivers by the White Sox on Wednesday, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

Sands landed on waivers after being DFA'd by the Indians late last week. He'll join the White Sox after compiling a .236/.286/.676 slash line in 2015. Sands also brings some versatility with his glove, having played three positions last season with the Tribe.

Indians' Jerry Sands: Designated for Assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sands was designated for assignment on Friday, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Sands added some versatility to the Indians in 2015 with his ability to play the infield and outfield, but the Tribe's recent additions such as Mike Napoli and Rajai Davis made him expendable. He was designated for assignment to clear a roster spot for Dan Otero, who was acquired for cash considerations Friday.

Indians right fielder Lonnie Chisenhall is not in the lineup against the Red Sox on Saturday.
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Indians right fielder Lonnie Chisenhall is not in the lineup against the Red Sox on Saturday.

Chisenhall had been dealing with a sore hamstring earlier in the week, so it's no surprise to see him out of the lineup Saturday. With the 26-year-old out, Jerry Sands will get the start in right field and hit ninth in the order.

Indians outfielder Jerry Sands was 2 for 4 with a home run and two RBI in Cleveland's win over Boston on Friday night.
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Indians outfielder Jerry Sands was 2 for 4 with a home run and two RBI in Cleveland's win over Boston on Friday night.

He was once considered a decent power prospect, but his days as a prospect are in the rearview mirror. Sands has four home runs to go with a pedestrian .233 average and his ability to play first base and either corner outfield spot provides some value as a utility man for the Indians, but he typically doesn't get enough playing time to have an impact in any but AL-only fantasy leagues.

Chisenhall (hamstring) remains out of the lineup Wednesday against the Twins.
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Indians right fielder Lonnie Chisenhall (hamstring) will not start the opener of the Wednesday doubleheader against visiting Minnesota.

Chisenhall was a late scratch Monday after returning from the hamstring issue Sunday, and even the day off Tuesday wasn't enough for him to rejoin the lineup. Jerry Sands will replace him in right field, batting seventh for Cleveland.
