  • White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Could see reps at third base

    Manager Rick Renteria said Moncada could play some third base in spring training, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Renteria apparently talked to Moncada about playing third base in 2018, and the 23-year-old was open to it. While the added positional flexibility won't hurt, Moncada figures to provide more fantasy value as a second baseman. The 23-year-old hit .235/.315/.400 with 17 homers and 12 steals across 149 games last season.

  • White Sox's Ivan Nova: Acquired by White Sox

    The Pirates traded Nova to the White Sox on Tuesday in exchange for minor-league pitcher Yordi Rosario and $500,000 in international bonus pool money, Jon Heyman of reports.

    The White Sox will hope that Nova can help stabilize the back of the rotation as the team attempts to head towards competitiveness. "Stable" seems to adequately describe the 31-year-old, who has posted three straight seasons with an ERA between 4.14 and 4.19. He won't strike out many players (just a 16.7 percent strikeout rate in each of the last two seasons), but his consistency has made him a useful option in deep leagues.

  • White Sox's Ryan Goins: Signs minor-league deal

    Goins agreed to a minor-league contract with the White Sox on Monday and has been invited to spring training, Chris Cotillo of reports.

    Goins appeared in 41 games for the Royals a season ago, batting .226 with nine extra-base hits and six RBI. He figures to begin the 2019 campaign at Triple-A Charlotte after latching on with Chicago.

  • White Sox's Alex Colome: Dealt to White Sox

    Colome was traded to the White Sox from Seattle on Friday in exchange for Omar Narvaez.

    Colome began this past season as Tampa Bay's closer before getting shipped to Seattle in late May. He wound up serving as Edwin Diaz's setup man, logging a 2.53 ERA and 1.04 WHIP with 49 strikeouts in 46.1 innings with the Mariners. The soon-to-be 30-year-old was able to bounce back from a rough 2017 campaign in which his walk rate (3.1 BB/9) and strikeout rate (7.8 K/9) each took a negative turn. Looking ahead, Colome will have the opportunity to step back into the ninth-inning role for the White Sox during this upcoming season after registering a total of 96 saves in 110 chances since the start of 2016. He will be under club control for two more seasons before becoming a free agent.

  • White Sox's Leury Garcia: Avoids arbitration

    Garcia signed a one-year, $1.55 million deal with the White Sox on Friday to avoid arbitration, Jon Heyman of Fancred reports.

    Garcia only played in 82 games due to knee and hamstring injuries that forced him to spend two separate stints on the disabled list. The 27-year-old also missed time the previous season with hand and finger issues, so there's real durability concerns here. He wound up slashing .271/.303/.376 with four home runs, 32 RBI and 12 stolen bases for the White Sox in 2018.

  • White Sox's Ian Clarkin: Back with White Sox

    Clarkin was claimed off waivers by the White Sox on Monday.

    This marks the second time in less than a week that Clarkin has moved from one Chicago team to the other; the Cubs claimed him from the White Sox last week before unsuccessfully attempting to pass him through waivers. Clarkin spent most of the 2018 season with Double-A Birmingham, posting a 4.98 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 35:31 K:BB across 68.2 innings. The White Sox may try to pass the 23-year-old through waivers once more before the start of the season.

  • White Sox's Matt Skole: Rejoins Chicago on minors deal

    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.

  • White Sox's Seby Zavala: Moved onto 40-man roster

    Zavala's contract was selected from Triple-A Charlotte on Tuesday.

    Zavala was added to the White Sox's 40-man roster for protection ahead of the Rule 5 draft. He split time between Charlotte and Double-A Birmingham in 2018, hitting a combined .258/.317/.418 with 13 homers across 104 games. The 25-year-old backstop will likely head back to Triple-A to begin the 2019 season after struggling during his first stint with the Knights (.243/.267/.359 across 48 games).

  • White Sox's Jordan Stephens: Shielded from Rule 5 draft

    Stephens had his contract purchased from Triple-A Charlotte on Tuesday.

  • White Sox's Kodi Medeiros: Joins 40-man roster

    Medeiros had his contract purchased from Double-A Birmingham on Tuesday.

    The White Sox added Medeiros -- a first-round pick in 2014 -- to their 40-man roster in order to protect the southpaw ahead of the Rule 5 draft. Medeiros was acquired from the Brewers in exchange for Joakim Soria in July and notched a combined 3.60 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 9.2 K/9 across 137.2 innings between Birmingham and Double-A Biloxi.

    Cease was added to the 40-man roster Tuesday.

    With that, the White Sox protected Cease from the Rule 5 draft. He was named the Minor-League Pitcher of the Year by MLB Pipeline following an impressive showing across stops at High-A Winston-Salem and Double-A Birmingham in 2018 (2.40 ERA with 160 strikeouts over 123 frames).
