    2 White Sox have Covid 19

    Kopech could have Covid but he's not one of the two. He never reported. The two names were from intake testing and Bilek's educated guess seems to be pretty accurate. Kopech is out with an undisclosed personal issue

    Not Steve Cishek: White Sox could be “Big Time” buyers this offseason

    I'm not sure that's the best plan because the CBA expires in December 2021 and I'm not sure they'd make more that off-season than this off-season honestly

    2 White Sox have Covid 19

    They'll get a year back from him this year if he doesn't play though.

    FS: Prospect Focus- Chase Krogman

    I like Krogman better. I think he can stay in CF. I will say that I don't know as much about Glass though.
  5. The White Sox selected Chase Krogman in the 34th round of the 2019 draft. I interviewed him recently and talked to area scout Robbie Cummings. Read his story here: https://www.futuresox.com/2020/07/06/prospect-focus-chase-krogman/

    2020 Schedule

    Nope. It's 6 regionals vs Cubs and 14 vs the other 4 teams.

    Sox summer camp roster announced

    The two players that tested positive did so on their intake exams. The tests were positive on Wednesday when players reported I believe. If it's Moncada, it's because he showed up and was positive initially

    Badler Day - our 2020 Intl Review

    The youngest brother is supposed to be the best of the bunch and the Sox are reportedly signing him too. It's 2022 though international draft could mess up those plans potentially.
  10. The youngest brother is supposedly the best of the bunch. He’s rumored to the White Sox as well but an international draft could put a wrench in those plans.
  11. I think the White Sox were pretty much down to one spot back in March so this might not be hard to predict. I'm thinking they'll carry 16 pitchers and 14 position players initially.

    Will There Be a 2020 Season?

    It's impossible. MLB can play because they will get paid their salaries due to television revenue. You can't have minor league baseball without fans. The operation itself can't pay anyone without stadium revenue. The hope was that an extended fall league in Arizona would occur. You could have a team full of prospects for each organization. These ideas were focused on Arizona and Florida however and doing anything in those states appears to be unlikely at the moment

    Top 3 Things You’re Looking Forward To

    When would Yermin Mercedes play? That's my only issue. Collins makes more sense because he's a left-handed bat. Yermin could be on the roster to pinch hit potentially. But you can't justify starting him over Grandal, Abreu or EE.

    Predict the White Sox 30 man opening roster

    What? They don’t need 16 position players. It’ll be 16 pitchers at a minimum and maybe 17. There’s no reason not to carry that amount

    Predict the White Sox 30 man opening roster

    I feel like they need another lefty. I would've had Adalberto Mejia on there but he's not an option currently.

    Sox summer camp roster announced

    The White Sox have room to add 16 more names. Zack Burdi, Matt Foster, Bernardo Flores, Seby Zavala, Micker Adolfo and Blake Rutherford are all on the 40 man and not on the initial 44. Some others who seem like options for the next 16: Luis Gonzalez, Gavin Sheets, Jake Burger, Jonathan Stiever, Garrett Crochet, Kodi Medeiros, Jacob Lindgren. That leaves these guys unaccounted for right now: Jaycob Brugman, Daniel Palka, Alex McRae, Adalberto Mejia, Bryan Mitchell, Brady Lail. Jared Kelley, Matthew Thompson and Andrew Dalquist could be options as well
  19. The White Sox selected Jared Kelley of Refugio High School with the 47th pick. I wrote about it here: https://www.futuresox.com/2020/06/11/white-sox-select-prep-right-hander-jared-kelley-with-47th-overall-pick/

    Amateur Draft Signings

    He means if they went over. They could’ve gone 5% over which is like $380K and then paid a 75% overage tax on that amount. They didn’t do that this year. Honestly though, this draft only cost Reinsdorf $360K right now. Rest of the bonus is deferred
  21. Auburn southpaw Bailey Horn was the 3rd best player in the Sox draft class. They signed him for $150K. I wrote about him here: https://www.futuresox.com/2020/06/28/white-sox-give-fifth-rounder-bailey-horn-third-biggest-signing-bonus-of-their-2020-draft/

    Taxi Squad Candidates

    This is pretty much what I'm looking at for today. The full 40 man roster will be part of the 60 player pool. I'm guessing Lambert goes on 45 day DL whenever that's allowed. Seby Zavala and Jose Ruiz could have 40 man spots in jeopardy. These are the options in my opinion for the other 20 players. Position Players Nick Madrigal Andrew Vaughn Gavin Sheets Luis Gonzalez Jake Burger Cheslor Cuthbert Nicky Delmonico Daniel Palka Andrew Romine Carlos Perez Jaycub Brugman Yolbert Sanchez Pitchers Codi Heuer Tyler Johnson Jonathan Stiever Garrett Crochet Will Kincanon Jared Kelley Andrew Dalquist Matthew Thompson Jacob Lindgren Drew Anderson Ross Detwiler Tayron Guerrero Brady Lail Alex McRae Kodi Medeiros Adalberto Mejia Bryan Mitchell
  23. Does anyone really care that much? This idea never really moved the meter for me. I think the movie is terrible though.

    Sox planning on having fans present in small amounts

    This isn't actually the truth though so, no. When was it denied? I've heard similar to Danny. He never reported that it was happening. He said that the White Sox are planning on having fans in the stands this year that's true. So are the Cubs. The governor is allowing it at 20% capacity. The mayor is not as of now. They won't have games for 4 weeks though. If Illinois' numbers stay where they are and Lightfoot allows it, the Sox will absolutely let 8K people into the ballpark as another revenue stream. One month from now, filling a stadium in Illinois at 1/5 capacity won't seem as crazy as it one month ago.
