White Sox's Michael Ynoa: Inks minor-league deal with Royals
Ynoa signed a minor-league contract with the Royals on Tuesday.
Ynoa didn't play affiliate ball in 2018 after being cut loose by the White Sox in March. He appeared in the Dominican Winter League, however, posting a 0.87 ERA, 0.77 WHIP and 13:4 K:BB through 10.1 innings. It's unclear if the deal includes an invitation to spring training at this point. Ynoa, who last pitched in the majors for the White Sox in 2017, owns a career 4.42 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 53:39 K:BB across parts of two major-league seasons (59 innings).... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Evan Marshall: Signs with White Sox
Marshall agreed to a minor-league contract with the White Sox on Friday, Paul Hoynes of Cleveland.com reports.
Marshall will provide added depth to Chicago's bullpen, though he'll have to show some improvement during spring training to warrant a spot on the Opening Day roster. He only appeared in 10 games for the Indians last year, posting a disastrous 7.71 ERA. He fared much better at the Triple-A level, logging a 1.13 ERA and 0.88 WHIP with 21 strikeouts across 24 innings.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Zack Burdi: Shut down from fall league
Burdi (elbow) will not pitch again in the Arizona Fall League due to "general fatigue," though he's expected to be fully healthy prior to spring training, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
Burdi missed a majority of the 2018 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in late July of 2017. He wound up pitching in seven fall league games in August and then returned for a few more appearances this past month before getting shut down for the rest of the year. He's expected to vie for a spot in the major-league bullpen this spring if he's back to 100 percent.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Manny Banuelos: Dealt to White Sox
Banuelos was traded to the White Sox from the Dodgers on Thursday in exchange for Justin Yurchak.
Unfortunately, injuries have derailed a once-promising career for Banuelos, as the 27-year-old has only appeared in seven big-league games, all coming in 2015 with Atlanta. That said, he began to show some signs that once made him a top prospect this past year, posting a 3.73 ERA and 1.40 WHIP with an impressive 127:42 K:BB across 108.2 innings with Triple-A Oklahoma City in the Dodgers' system. The White Sox are hoping that he'll be able to make another jump and battle for a spot in the majors come spring training.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Nate Jones: Has option picked up
The White Sox exercised Jones' $4.65 million club option for 2019.
Jones will stick with the White Sox for at least one more season after finishing out the 2018 campaign as the team's primary closer. While injuries limited Jones to just 30 innings out of the bullpen, he notched five saves and posted a solid 3.00 ERA and 9.6 K/9 when healthy. As it stands heading into the offseason, the hard-throwing right-hander is one of the top candidates to serve as the White Sox's closer in 2019.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Rob Scahill: Outrighted to Triple-A
Scahill was outrighted from the 40-man roster to Triple-A Charlotte on Friday and will become a free agent following the conclusion of the 2018 season.
Scahill spent a majority of this past year at the Triple-A level, only joining the White Sox in September once rosters expanded. In six appearances with the big-league club, he allowed three earned runs on five hits and three walks while striking out three across five innings of relief.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Ryan LaMarre: Cast off 40-man roster
LaMarre was outrighted to Triple-A Charlotte on Friday and is set to become a free agent at the conclusion of the season.
Senior vice president and general manager Rick Hahn didn't rule out LaMarre's return to the organization but stated that Friday's moves -- the team also outrighted Danny Farquhar (head) and Rob Scahill -- provided the club with flexibility for the offseason. In 76 games split between Chicago and Minnesota this year, LaMarre slashed .279/.322/.382 with a pair of home runs and 18 RBI.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Danny Farquhar: Outrighted from 40-man roster
Farquhar (head) was outrighted to Triple-A Charlotte on Friday and will become a free agent following the conclusion of the 2018 season.
Farquhar appeared in eight games for the White Sox this year but had his season cut short when he collapsed in the dugout due to a brain hemorrhage in late April. The 31-year-old spent a couple weeks at a hospital and was ruled out for the remainder of the year. His timetable for getting back on the mound is unclear, though he's expected to try and make a comeback for the 2019 campaign.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Luis Robert: Returns to Arizona Fall League
Robert (hamstring) went 1-for-4 with a run scored in Monday's Arizona Fall League game.
Robert is good to go after missing a little more than a week with a minor hamstring injury. The 21-year-old prospect is slashing .286/.318/.286 with a pair of RBI and seven runs scored through five games with the Glendale Desert Dogs.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Luis Robert: Dealing with hamstring issue
Robert suffered a hamstring injury Friday and should be considered day-to-day moving forward, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
Robert was forced to exit Friday's Arizona Fall League contest after picking up the injury running to first base. Fortunately, he appears to have avoided any sort of major injury. Look for him to return to action in the near future.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Luis Robert: Exits game with apparent injury
Robert left Friday's Arizona Fall League game after beating out a fielder's choice in the seventh inning.
It's unclear what kind of injury Robert is dealing with, though it appears to be some sort of leg issue. The outfield prospect was able to leave the field under his own power after trainers came out to check on him. This is another unfortunate event for Robert after he missed a decent chunk of time in 2018 due to thumb injuries.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Avisail Garcia: Recovering from knee surgery
Garcia underwent successful arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Oct. 2, Scot Gregor of the Chicago Daily Herald reports.
Garcia played through the knee discomfort for most of September before going under the knife shortly after the season concluded. Considering that Garcia is just getting a scope of the knee rather than reconstructive surgery, his recovery timeline will likely be measured in weeks rather than months. With that in mind, it's expected that Garcia will be in store for a rather normal offseason and return to spring training at full strength.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Alfredo Gonzalez: Re-signs with White Sox
The White Sox recently re-signed Gonzalez to a minor-league contract, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports.
Gonzalez reached the big leagues for the first time in his career this past May, appearing in three games with Chicago before being optioned to Triple-A. Though he's no longer a member of the 40-man roster, Gonzalez will stick around in the organization and likely earn an invite to big-league spring training. It's likely that he'll open the 2019 campaign at Double-A Birmingham with the White Sox expected to deploy Zack Collins and Seby Zavala at Triple-A Charlotte.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Zack Burdi: Pitching in instructional league
Burdi (elbow) is scheduled to pitch in an instructional league game Thursday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
Burdi is working his way back from Tommy John surgery, which he underwent in July of 2017. The 23-year-old made seven appearances for the AZL White Sox in August, posting a 2.84 ERA with seven strikeouts across 6.1 innings. He's now set to throw a few innings in the instructional league before the Arizona Fall League kicks back up Oct. 9. Burdi is expected to transition to a pitching plan that resembles how he would be used in the big-league bullpen. He could compete for a high-leverage role next spring if his arm is ready....
