White Sox's Micker Adolfo: Suffers sprained UCL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adolfo has sprained the UCL in his right (throwing) elbow, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

UCL injuries are always scary. A sprained UCL isn't far from a torn UCL, which typically requires Tommy John surgery. For now, that's just the worst case scenario, and Adolfo will get a second opinion to determine the best course of action. Even if he avoids surgery, though, rehabbing from the sprain should take at least six weeks. He has yet to reach Double-A, so he wasn't likely to debut until at least 2019, but if he misses significant time this year his debut could be pushed back a bit.

White Sox's Carlos Rodon: Throwing without discomfort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodon (shoulder) has been throwing from 90 feet without discomfort, James Fegan of The Athletic Chicago reports.

Rodon isn't yet throwing with full intensity, but the lack of discomfort is an encouraging sign. It seems that the White Sox are following through with their plan to take things slowly with Rodon. He likely won't be pitching until early June.

White Sox's James Shields: Hopes to recapture past success with altered motion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shields (knee) adjusted his delivery over the offseason with the hope to improve his fortunes on the mound, Bruce Levine of 670 The Score reports.

According to reports, the veteran starter is working on implementing a lower arm slot in his delivery. He also has a renewed focus on his off speed offerings now that he understands his fastball isn't good enough to simply blow it past professional hitters. Shields struggled a lot last season, posting a 5.23 ERA in 21 starts, but as long as his body holds up over the course of the season, he hopes that this new approach is just what he needs to return to being a respectable pitcher in the majors.

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 Joakim Soria: Ready to close for White Sox if needed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The White Sox have not officially named Soria as the team's closer, but he's ready to fill that role if needed, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Juan Minaya finished 2017 as the White Sox's preferred ninth-inning option, but Soria's experience as a 33-year-old with 204 career saves may be enough for him to be named to the role before the end of spring training. Last season, Soria's 3.70 ERA was backed by solid peripherals (10.3 K/9, 3.2 BB/9, 0.16 HR/9), which suggest that he may have been somewhat unlucky while he delivered his most valuable season (according to fWAR) since 2010. If healthy, Nate Jones could also enter the mix to push Soria for the closer role.
