White Sox's Matt Skole: Joins White Sox on minors deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skole signed with the White Sox as a non-roster invitee Tuesday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Skole recorded a .208 batting average with seven runs and six RBI in 27 games for the White Sox last season before being released to minor-league free agency in October. The veteran designated hitter will get another chance to impress the coaching staff this spring in an attempt to land a spot on the White Sox roster for the third time.

Matt Skole: Needs new club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skole was outrighted to Triple-A Charlotte on Monday in order to be released to minor-league free agency at the end of the World Series.

Skole got into just 27 games at the big-league level, hitting just .208/.275/.236. As a 30-year-old with only 93 MLB plate appearances under his belt, he's unlikely to be a coveted asset on the market this winter.

Skole exited Wednesday's game against the Indians with right abdominal tightness.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skole went 2-for-3 in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Angels.

White Sox's Matt Skole: Checks out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skole is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Astros.

With the Astros using a lefty starting pitcher (Wade Miley) for the series finale, Skole will bow out of the lineup as Welington Castillo checks in as the White Sox's designated hitter. Skole, who has posted a .607 OPS since being called up from the minors earlier this month, still appears to be manager Rick Renteria's preferred DH versus right-handed pitching.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skole will be the designated hitter and bat cleanup Saturday against Oakland.

Skole was called up to the big-league club on Aug. 2 and appeared only as a pinch hitter in his first three games. However, including Saturday, he's now started four of the team's past six contests. He's 2-for-12 with seven strikeouts in those starts, but the team appears intent on giving him continued opportunities.

White Sox's Matt Skole: Rejoins Chicago on minors deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Skole re-signed with the White Sox on a minor-league contract, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports.

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.
