White Sox's Juan Minaya: Outrighted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minaya cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Charlotte on Wednesday.

Minaya threw 27.2 innings for the White Sox this season, recording a 3.90 ERA. However, the ERA estimators suggested regression was coming, as his FIP comes in at 4.66 while his xFIP sits at 5.63. He'll remain in an organizational depth role for Chicago.

White Sox's Juan Minaya: Designated for assigment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minaya was designated for assignment Saturday.

This is the corresponding move for Dylan Covey coming off the injured list. Minaya has a 3.90 ERA in 27.2 innings, but his 4.65 FIP is a better gauge of how he has pitched this season.

White Sox's Juan Minaya: Extends scoreless run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minaya allowed a hit and recorded a strikeout over two innings in Tuesday's 9-5 loss to the Nationals.

Minaya has quietly put together a nice season out of the White Sox's bullpen. His two innings Tuesday extended his scoreless streak to nine innings over six appearances, and the right-hander has a 1.17 ERA over 15.1 frames overall in 2019. None of his outings, however, have been in high-leverage spots. While he's not going to threaten Alex Colome for closing duties, Minaya became the temporary closer in 2017 (nine saves) after the White Sox traded David Robertson. If Chicago eventually deals Colome, Minaya is putting together a body of work that could thrust him into a more prominent role.

White Sox's Juan Minaya: Back in big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The White Sox selected Minaya's contract from Triple-A Charlotte on Sunday.

Chicago will add Minaya and Caleb Frare to the bullpen to replace Carson Fulmer and Jose Ruiz, who were both optioned to Charlotte following Saturday's 15-2 loss to the Red Sox. Minaya logged 52 appearances out of the White Sox bullpen in 2018, posting a 3.28 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 58:29 K:BB in 46.2 innings.

White Sox's Juan Minaya: Outrighted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minaya cleared waivers Friday and was outrighted to Triple-A Charlotte, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Minaya had struggled so far this spring, allowing 11 runs in 4.2 innings. He finished 2018 with a 3.28 ERA in 46.2 innings, so he still could provide capable performances at some point this season.

White Sox's Juan Minaya: Spring ERA rises
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minaya allowed two runs on two hits and two walks while striking out three in an inning of relief Monday against the Brewers.

Both runs Minaya allowed scampered home after wild pitches. It's been a troubling spring for the White Sox's returning bullpen members. Minaya's ERA rose to 21.21 after the outing. He joins Aaron Bummer (13.50), Jace Fry (14.73), Ian Hamilton (36.00) and Thyago Vieira (7.71) as members of the bullpen that finished the 2018 season in Chicago and are now scuffling in the Cactus League.

White Sox's Juan Minaya: Grabs first save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minaya allowed a hit and a walk over 1.1 scoreless innings to record his first save of the season in Saturday's 2-0 win over the Orioles.

Nate Jones and Jace Fry both pitched the night before, so manager Rick Renteria turned to Minaya instead to close out the game. He's at best third in the pecking order for ninth-inning duty, so don't expect the 27-year-old to get many more save opportunities over the final weeks of the season.

White Sox's Juan Minaya: Blows save chance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minaya allowed a hit and a walk while striking out two over two-thirds of an inning and was tagged with a blown save in Friday's 3-2 extra-inning win over the Rays.

Minaya was part of an eighth-inning crew that blew a 2-0 lead that illustrated the unsettled nature of the White Sox's back-end picture. After a shift-beating infield single off Jace Fry, Minaya was victimized by two stolen bases and a wild pitch that allowed the Rays to tie the game. Luis Avilan, another member of Chicago's committee of closers, prevented any further damage in the eighth inning, but ran into a spot of trouble of his own making in the ninth.

White Sox's Juan Minaya: Mentioned as fill-in closer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minaya was one pitcher mentioned as part of a closer-by-committee approach after the White Sox traded Joakim Soria to Milwaukee on Thursday, Doug Padilla of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Minaya filled a similar role in 2017 when he picked up nine saves as a fill-in closer after the White Sox traded David Robertson to the Yankees. Manager Rick Renteria said he didn't plan on naming a closer and also mentioned Jace Fry as a possible member of the committee. Hours after Renteria mentioned Minaya, the reliever was dinged for a three-run home run in two-thirds of an inning, throwing just nine strikes in 23 pitches.

White Sox's Juan Minaya: Picks up second hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minaya retired the only batter he faced to earn his second hold of the season in Wednesday's 4-0 win over the Cardinals.

Minaya has slowly chipped away at an ERA that was 7.11 on June 15. Since then, he's allowed two earned runs over 11.2 innings (1.54 ERA) with six walks and 14 strikeouts. He served as the White Sox's closer for a period of time last year after David Robertson was dealt and could be in line for save opportunities later this season if the White Sox trade Joakim Soria. For that to happen, he'll need to manage the free passes more effectively -- he's walked 17 batters in 18 innings.

White Sox's Juan Minaya: Saddled with loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minaya was hit with the loss Saturday against the Athletics, allowing a run on two hits while striking out a pair in one inning.

Minaya failed to keep the game tied after entering in the top of the eighth inning. He struck out a pair of tough batters in Khris Davis and Matt Olson but allowed a run to score on a double and a single. Minaya has bounced between the majors and Triple-A so far this season and has a 4.63 ERA in his 11.2 big-league innings.

June 13, 2018 05:00 PM
White Sox's Juan Minaya: Recalled from Charlotte
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minaya was called up from Triple-A Charlotte on Wednesday.

Minaya will take the roster spot of Nate Jones, who was placed on the 10-day DL with a muscle strain in his right arm prior to Wednesday's game against the Indians. Across five appearances with Chicago this season, Minaya has allowed four earned runs in 3.1 innings of relief. Expect him to pitch in low-leverage situations during his time with the big-league club.

White Sox's Juan Minaya: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minaya was returned to Triple-A Charlotte on Tuesday.

Minaya was summoned to the majors to act as the team's 26th man in Tuesday's doubleheader. He'll return to Charlotte where he currently holds a 4.64 ERA over 21.1 innings.

June 5, 2018 04:20 PM
White Sox's Juan Minaya: Brought up as 26th man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The White Sox added Minaya to the big-league roster to serve as the 26th man in Tuesday's doubleheader against the Twins.

Minaya appeared in five games for Chicago earlier this season, accruing a 10.80 ERA and 3.60 WHIP with five strikeouts across 3.1 innings. He will provide the bullpen with a fresh arm during the doubleheader.

White Sox's Juan Minaya: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minaya was sent back down to Triple-A Charlotte on Friday.

Minaya has appeared in five games for the White Sox thus far in 2018, allowing four earned runs off three hits and nine walks while striking out five in 3.1 innings of relief. The right-hander will look to focus on his control back in the minors, while Jace Fry takes his 25-man roster spot in a corresponding move.

White Sox's Juan Minaya: Saturday's 26th man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minaya was called up from Triple-A Charlotte to serve as the 26th man for Saturday's doubleheader in Kansas City.

The White Sox are adding some short-term bullpen depth for the twin bill against the Royals. Minaya has allowed five runs while striking out eight in 8.1 innings (six appearances) at Triple-A. He should return to Charlotte after the doubleheader.

April 8, 2018 10:32 AM
White Sox's Juan Minaya: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minaya was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte on Saturday, James Fegan of The Athletic Chicago reports.

Minaya finished the 2017 season as the closer in Chicago and was assumed to be in the conversation to fill the role again this season. Instead, after just one inning of work -- and three runs, two hits and four walks -- he's been sent down. He'll likely be back up with the White Sox at some point this season, though the team seems to have little faith in him. He's unlikely to be anywhere close to the top of the closer depth chart if and when he does return.

March 22, 2018 08:16 AM
White Sox's Juan Minaya: Allows run Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minaya allowed one run on one hit over two innings in Wednesday's game against the Padres.

Minaya finished up as the White Sox's closer in 2017, but we're not expecting him to reprise that role. He's given up runs in four straight appearance while allowing three home runs during that span. To see him pitch multiple innings Wednesday suggests manager Rick Renteria is looking elsewhere, such as Joakim Soria or Nate Jones, for his closer.

White Sox's Juan Minaya: White Sox closer plans TBD
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The White Sox have not named a closer to begin the 2018 season, but Minaya may end up yielding the job to veteran Joakim Soria.

Coming off of his best season since 2010, Soria's experience in the role may ultimately be the difference-maker as the White Sox put together their bullpen for the upcoming season. In order to make a strong case for the job, Minaya will need to cut back on the free passes and long balls. Additionally, the White Sox could consider Nate Jones as an option to pitch the ninth if he proves to be healthy following a season-ending elbow procedure that cut his 2017 campaign short.

White Sox's Juan Minaya: Earns ninth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minaya struck out one in a perfect ninth inning against the Indians on Saturday en route to his ninth save of the season.

The 27-year-old has provided a nice late-season lift for his fantasy owners, racking up five saves in the last 10 days. He became the closer by default after the White Sox traded away David Robertson, Tommy Kahnle, Anthony Swarzak and Tyler Clippard during the summer. Minaya's issues with walks and homers make him a risky bet heading into 2018.
