Should the White Sox Pursue: Kenta Maeda

The White Sox could be able to land their No. 2 starter for an affordable price The Chicago White Sox need starting pitchers, and may need to look externally for options. There is a terrific option available with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Kenta Maeda. But does Maeda make sense for the White Sox? Oh yes, he does. Let’s count the ways. The White Sox rotation is very bad It is no secret that the White Sox rotation needs help. They have one guy you may have heard of who has a 2.22 ERA and is...

Pitching in: The latest White Sox UDFA signings

Undrafted players have a tougher road than anyone to the majors, but now Allan Beer and Vlad Nuñez Jr. are ready to start their journeys

When an athlete who believes he’s earned the chance to be selected in a professional sports draft discovers at the end that nobody was interested in services, it has to be disappointing, frustrating and heartbreaking. This is most evident in baseball, when three days, 40 rounds and 1,217 selections transpired earlier this month.

Last year, however,...

Draft Signings: where the White Sox stand

Plenty of upper-tier talent was selected ... so how will all the final bonuses be alotted?

It’s been more than a week since Day 3 of the draft concluded, and while many draftees have signed, a few minor rumblings have been stirred regarding the top three Chicago White Sox selections: Andrew Vaughn, Matthew Thompson and Andrew Dalquist.

On the surface, this could be a concern, because this was a very top-heavy draft for the White Sox. Many of the second-day picks were expected to be...

White Sox to promote catching propsect Zack Collins

The White Sox are set to call up catcher Zack Collins from Triple-A, tweets Jonathan Mayo of MLB.com. Collins is not on Chicago's 40-man roster, so the White Sox will need to make a corresponding move to clear room for him. Collins, a 24-year-old catcher from the University of Miami, was a first-round pick (10th overall) by the White Sox in 2016. MLB Pipeline regards Collins as the 11th-best prospect in the Chicago farm system, lauding his combination of power and on-base skills....

White Sox reportedly calling up top prospect Zack Collins

The Chicago White Sox are continuing their youth movement. According to Andy Slater of 640 The Hurricane, the White Sox are calling up 2016 first-round draft pick Zack Collins. Collins, a catcher, ranked as a top 100 prospect before the season began. He hit .258 with nine home runs in 48 games for Triple-A Charlotte this season. While it’s unclear if he’ll stick as a catcher in the long-term, he’s there now, but it’s his power bat that is generally the most intriguing thing about...

White Sox to call up top prospect Zack Collins?

Catcher Zack Collins is having a great year in the Chicago White Sox system. On Sunday, it was reported that he’ll be heading up to the majors. Collins was selected No. 10 overall in 2016 out of the University of Miami. He’s one of many young players whom the White Sox are depending upon to form the foundation of the roster. He’s been solid at the plate for Triple-A Charlotte in 2019, hitting .250/.374/.482 with nine home runs in 164 at-bats. In 2018, he hit .234/.382/.404 with 15 home...

Well, the first two innings went fine

Sox lose to Yanks by a TD, 10-3

Before you could say Odrisamer Despaigne, the new Chicago White Sox starter had given up a couple of cheap singles to start the game, but then he cruised through the next six batters, including four strikeouts. It didn’t hurt that the New York Yankees were mostly playing their second string.

Meanwhile, José Abreu scalded one into the bullpen:

Just a whiff of .500

Sixteen Ks and another rough Reynaldo outing drop Sox, 8-4

Yours truly, coming from the ballpark on this rainy day (but hey, the Hawaiian shirt was worth it alone).

It was a welcome sight to see a game even get started at all after the abysmal drive in, but given the second sellout of the season and the Chicago White Sox at .500, it was a can’t-miss game.

But, to the game, an 8-4 loss to the New York Yankees, because that’s the important part for you all. (But also, yes WIN05, I went...

Evan Marshall: ‘Changed’ for good

The veteran has bounced around for years, signed this offseason for just 550k, and now is an integral part of the Sox bullpen

Way back in 2011, Evan Marshall was selected in the fourth round of the draft, and three years later made the big leagues.

And he was pretty good: In 2014, Marshall had a 2.89 FIP in 49 1?3 innings. He was more of a strikeout pitcher then with some questionable command, but he was very effective. Unfortunately for him, it was downhill for the next few years, and not...
