White Sox's Carson Fulmer: Competing for rotation spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fulmer is expected to be given a shot to earn a spot in the starting rotation during spring training, Vinnie Duber of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

The 24-year-old right-hander made a cameo late last season and fared well in his final four starts, giving up just three runs in 17.1 innings while striking out 16 batters. But his success should be viewed with circumspection. He walked 11 batters in 18.1 innings as a starter, and a minuscule .204 BABIP is due for a correction as opponents develop a book on him. Prior to his callup to Chicago, Fulmer was tagged at Triple-A Charlotte, posting a 5.79 ERA. That suggests his unfamiliarity to major-league hitters played a role in his effectiveness. Nevertheless, there's a spot in the 2018 rotation available and he'll be given an opportunity to earn it. The question the White Sox are looking to answer is if there's a rotation spot beyond this season.

White Sox's Michael Kopech: Could reach majors in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kopech is not expected to break spring training in the White Sox's starting rotation, but could reach Chicago at some point in 2018, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports. "I'm anxious for him to get there and stay there," White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper said. "I'm anxious to see the continued work we will put into Spring Training but also the continued work he will get to continue to improve, because for a lot of these guys, not only Kopech, their time is coming."

Kopech reached Triple-A Charlotte last season, increasing his inning count to 134.1. The right-hander with the legendary fastball improved his command, a bugaboo since he was drafted by Boston in 2014, dropping his BB/9 from 6.00 during the first half to 2.71 in the second half. If he continues on the same path that he finished up last season, we could see Kopech at in the second half. That's the same path followed by fellow prospect Reynaldo Lopez, who made eight starts in the majors after 22 (121.0 IP) at Charlotte.

White Sox's Gonzalez Germen: Inks minor-league deal with White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Germen signed a minor-league contract with the White Sox on Tuesday, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports.

Germen is looking to make his way back to the majors after spending the 2017 season in Japan, where he posted a 2.68 ERA and 51 strikeouts in 47 innings of relief for the Orix Buffaloes. He last appeared in the majors in 2016, though he struggled to a 5.31 ERA and 1.62 WHIP across 40.2 innings with the Rockies that season.

White Sox's Micker Adolfo: Had fractured knuckle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adolfo spent his time during the Instructional League rehabbing a fractured knuckle on his left pinky suffered in August, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

The injury was the result of a freak accident and ended Adolfo's 2017 season prematurely, but not before the 21-year-old outfielder put himself on the prospect map. He hit .264 with 16 home runs, 28 doubles and 68 RBI across 112 games for Low-A Kannapolis. Countering that production was a 31.5 strikeout percentage, which suggests some plate discipline is in order for 2018, when Adolfo is expected to start at High-A Winston-Salem. Adolfo, an international free agent that signed with the organization in 2013, credited the club's conditioning and strength programs for helping him establish career highs.

White Sox's Luis Avilan: Agrees to terms with White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avilan agreed to a one-year, $2.450 million contract with the White Sox on Friday, avoiding arbitration.

Avilan baffled left-handed hitters again in 2017, holding them to a .195 average and .260 wOBA, but the Dodgers decided they were fine on lefty relievers and recently unloaded Avilan as part of a three-team swap. He figures to serve as the top setup lefty for the White Sox as the team looks to build up his value and flip him at the trade deadline.
