Skole was dropped from the White Sox's 40-man roster in early September after making the first four big-league appearances of his career and going 3-for-11 with a home run. The first baseman will stick in the organization in 2019 and will most likely report to Triple-A Charlotte to begin the campaign.
Skole was outrighted to Triple-A Charlotte on Tuesday.
The 29-year-old reached the big leagues for the first time this season, appearing in four games. Now that he's off the 40-man roster, it's difficult to see where his next opportunity will come from.
Skole was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte on Monday.
Skole will report back to the Knights to clear room on the roster for Matt Davidson, who was brought back from the disabled list in a corresponding move. The 28-year-old held his own in his first taste of the majors, going 3-for-11 (.273) with a homer and a pair of walks in four games. He'll continue to serve as organizational depth with Davidson and Jose Abreu blocking his path.
Skole is out of the lineup Sunday against the Brewers.
Following Matt Davidson's (back) placement on the 10-day disabled list in late May, the White Sox have taken a platoon approach to the designated-hitter spot, with Skole garnering the bulk of the starting assignments as the left-handed hitter. However, with southpaw Brent Suter starting for Milwaukee on Sunday, Skole will head to the bench, allowing Jose Rondon to slot in at DH and bat fourth.
Skole went 2-for-3 with a single, a home run, a walk and two runs scored in Monday's 9-6 loss to the Indians.
The 28-year-old Skole made his major-league debut Monday and helped build the White Sox's lead early before defense and faulty pitching turned the game into yet another loss. Skole had his contract purchased from Triple-A Charlotte earlier as a replacement for Matt Davidson, who landed on the 10-day disabled list with back spasms. Davidson is not expected to miss much more than the 10-day minimum, so Skole has a short window of time.
