Top White Sox News

  • White Sox's Michael Kopech: No timeline

    White Sox general manager Rick Hahn said he has no timeline for Kopech's return from a personal matter, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    To alleviate any concern, the general manager stressed that Kopech, who was finishing his recovery from Tommy John elbow surgery during spring training, is now healthy. ''I do not have a timeline for his return, and given the personal nature of the matter he's tending to, I won't provide updates until we know the actual plan for Michael going forward,'' Hahn said. Van Schouwen added that the absence has the look of something that could keep Kopech away for a while.

  • White Sox's Cheslor Cuthbert: Arrival delayed for several days

    Cuthbert's arrival from his native Nicaragua is expected to be delayed until July 9 or 10, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    Cuthbert's delayed arrival will see him join White Sox camp roughly two weeks before Opening Day. That's unlikely to leave him enough time to be ready to play at the start of the season, but he's buried down the depth chart and has always been unlikely to fill a major role -- even if available -- unless injuries strike the players ahead of him.

  • White Sox's Michael Kopech: Absent for personal reasons

    GM Rick Hahn said Kopech (elbow) is healthy but is away from the team to address a personal matter, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    The 24-year-old missed last season while recovering from Tommy John surgery in September 2018, but it appears he's now fully healthy. It's unclear when Kopech is expected to join his teammates at summer training or what role he'll have during the shortened season.

  • White Sox's Leury Garcia: Expected to start at second

    Garcia is the likely starter at second base for the White Sox.

    Garcia and prospect Nick Madrigal were contenders for the starting job during spring training, but the White Sox were leaning toward the veteran in March. As Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reported last week, the White Sox are not sure if Madrigal will be ready for an everyday job on the new Opening Day, but general manager Rick Hahn said the prospect will "help us at some point over the course of the summer." Garcia's value as a utility man -- he can play infield and outfield -- will keep him active through the 60-game schedule but not as busy as 2019, when he appeared in 86 percent (140 of 162) of Chicago's games.

  • White Sox's Luis Robert: Included in player pool

    Robert is included in the White Sox's 60-man player pool.

    This comes as no surprise. Robert was always expected to start the season in MLB as the team's starting center fielder. The lone uncertainty is where Chicago's top position prospect will hit in the batting order. Robert may eventually fill the leadoff role, but the team will likely have him hit down in the order initially.

  • White Sox's Luis Alexander Basabe: Included in player pool

    The White Sox announced Monday that Basabe will be included as part of the team's 60-man roster pool.

    Though Basabe will join the big club when it resumes workouts Friday, he's unlikely to see more than a handful of at-bats with the White Sox in 2020, assuming the team's outfield stays reasonably healthy. The 23-year-old switch hitter struggled during a repeat season at Double-A Birmingham in 2019, batting .246 with three home runs and nine steals over 291 plate appearances.

  • White Sox's Andrew Romine: Earns spot in 60-man pool

    The White Sox announced Monday that Romine will be included as part of the team's 60-man roster pool.

    Romine's positional flexibility should come in handy for the White Sox, though the 34-year-old probably isn't a serious candidate to see everyday at-bats at any point during the abbreviated season. Romine spent most of the 2019 campaign with the Phillies' Triple-A affiliate at Lehigh Valley, slashing .289/.342/.408 with eight home runs and 21 steals across 417 plate appearances.

  • White Sox's Cheslor Cuthbert: Filling spot in 60-man roster pool

    The White Sox announced Monday that Cuthbert will be included as part of the team's 60-man roster pool.

    Cuthbert attended spring training with the White Sox as a non-roster invitee and had made a serious run at an Opening Day gig, so his inclusion on the expanded roster comes as little surprise. The 27-year-old is expected to work as a backup at both corner-infield spots behind presumptive everyday starters Jose Abreu and Yoan Moncada.

  • White Sox's Yermin Mercedes: Added to 60-man pool

    The White Sox announced Monday that Mercedes will be included as part of the team's 60-man roster pool.

    Chicago added a pair of catchers in Mercedes and Zack Collins to its pool of available players in advance of the MLB season resuming in late July. The White Sox are expected to lean heavily on Yasmani Grandal and James McCann to handle nearly all the starts behind the plate, but Mercedes could get a look if either or both of the aforementioned players succumbs to an injury at some point.

  • White Sox's Zack Collins: Joining big club for 60-game season

    The White Sox announced Monday that Collins will be included as part of the team's 60-man roster pool.

    Since none of the White Sox's minor-league affiliates are expected to have proper seasons in 2020, Collins will join the parent club when it opens its summer training camp Friday. One of four catchers for the Pale Hose, Collins isn't expected to find himself any higher than third on the depth chart with Yasmani Grandal and James McCann locked in as the top two options behind the plate. Collins could also see occasional work as a designated hitter or pinch hitter off the bench.

  • White Sox's Jose Ruiz: Included in 60-man player pool

    The White Sox announced Monday that Ruiz will be included as part of the team's 60-man roster pool.

    After optioning Ruiz to Triple-A Charlotte shortly after spring training was suspended in March, the White Sox will reverse that transaction with MLB having extended extra roster spots to teams ahead of the 60-game season. Ruiz will provide another depth arm out of the bullpen after he logged a 5.63 ERA and 2.00 WHIP across 40 appearances with the big club in 2019.

  • White Sox's Dane Dunning: Added to 60-man pool

    The White Sox announced Monday that Dunning (elbow) will be included as part of the team's 60-man roster pool.

    Dunning is believed to be nearing the finish line in his recovery from his March 2019 Tommy John surgery, and though he may not be deemed ready to go when the season opens in late July, his inclusion in the player pool suggests he should be able to pitch at some point in 2020. However, since Dunning is coming off a major injury and has yet to pitch above the Double-A level, he's unlikely to log many meaningful innings for the big club during the 60-game season.

  • White Sox's Jimmy Lambert: Gets spot in player pool

    The White Sox announced Monday that Lambert (elbow) will be included as part of the team's 60-man roster pool.

    Lambert is just over a year removed from Tommy John surgery, so he won't necessarily be ready to go when the MLB season resumes July 23 or 24. Even so, the White Sox's decision to include him in in their player pool suggests Lambert is expected to be ready to go at some point before 2020 ends. Prior to getting hurt last June, Lambert spent the 2019 campaign at Double-A Birmingham, posting a 4.55 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 70:27 K:BB across 59.1 innings spanning 11 starts.

  • White Sox's Michael Kopech: Included in 60-man roster pool

    The White Sox announced Monday that Kopech (elbow) will be included as part of the team's 60-man roster pool.

    Chicago has yet to decide on Kopech's role entering the restarted season after sitting out all of 2019 while recovering from Tommy John surgery, but his inclusion in the roster pool at least officially makes him an option for the Pale Hose. Though Kopech was initially expected to be sidelined until late May or early June while recovering from surgery, he may be close to 100 percent health in the wake of baseball's four-month hiatus. The extended break should also allow Carlos Rodon (elbow) to be nearly ready to go when the season begins, which could provide the White Sox with more reason to exercise caution with Kopech's usage coming off injury. If that's the case, Kopech may make the most sense for the White Sox as a multi-inning reliever or opening pitcher rather than a traditional starter.

  • White Sox's Tyler Johnson: Receives spot in 60-man pool

    The White Sox announced Monday that Johnson will be included as part of the team's 60-man roster pool.

    Considering the 2017 fifth-round pick has logged fewer than 20 innings above the Double-A level, the White Sox are likely viewing Johnson as luxury depth out of the bullpen due to the expanded roster. His initial opportunities will presumably come in lower-leverage spots, though he could see his role grow if he makes a strong early impression out of the big-league bullpen.

  • White Sox's Nicky Delmonico: Gets spot in 60-man player pool

    The White Sox announced Monday that Delmonico will be included as part of the team's 60-man roster pool.

    Delmonico had previously joined the White Sox for spring training as a non-roster invitee. A career .227/.315/.393 hitter at the big-league level, Delmonico isn't expected to be in the mix for regular at-bats with the White Sox, though he'll provide the club with another left-handed bat off the bench.

  • White Sox's Andrew Vaughn: Included in 60-man roster pool

    The White Sox announced Monday that Vaughn will be included as part of the team's 60-man roster pool.

    With the 2020 minor-league season expected to be cancelled, Vaughn, one of the White Sox's top prospects, will join the big club for its summer training camp that begins Friday. Though Vaughn will be available to play during Chicago's 60-game regular-season slate, he'll most likely see most of his reps in simulated games while Jose Abreu and Edwin Encarnacion handle regular duties at first base and designated hitter for the big club. After being selected with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2019 first-year player draft, Vaughn appeared in 55 games between three different affiliates in his first pro campaign, slashing .278/.384/.449 with six home runs and 17 doubles.

  • White Sox's Codi Heuer: Gets spot on 60-man roster

    The White Sox announced Monday that Heuer will be included as part of the team's 60-man roster pool.

    A 2018 sixth-round pick, Heuer has yet to appear in the majors after finishing his second season of professional ball at Double-A Birmingham. Over his 22 appearances out of the Birmingham bullpen, Heuer posted a 1.84 ERA and 1.09 WHIP across 29.1 innings. Given his lack of prior big-league experience, Heuer likely won't be tasked with covering many high-leverage innings for the White Sox in 2020.

  • White Sox's Tayron Guerrero: Included in 60-man pool

    The White Sox announced Monday that Guerrero will be included as part of the team's 60-man roster pool.

    The hard-throwing reliever has posted some solid strikeout rates during stints in the majors the past two years with the Marlins, but poor control and command have hindered his overall effectiveness. Though the expanded roster will allow Guerrero to stick around with the White Sox in 2020, expect most of his use to be limited to lower-leverage spots.

    ... See More ... See Less
  • White Sox's Ross Detwiler: Joins 60-man roster pool

    The White Sox announced Monday that Detwiler will be included as part of the team's 60-man roster pool.

    Before spring training was suspended in mid-March, Detwiler, a non-roster invitee, was on the outside looking in for a spot in the White Sox's Opening Day rotation. While that still remains the case nearly four months later, the expanded roster will at least allow Detwiler to stick around with the White Sox when the 60-game season starts in late July. Assuming the White Sox have their ideal rotation intact for Opening Day, Detwiler will likely work out of the bullpen as a long reliever.
