    Jay injury update

    This opens the path for Eloy without them having to make a decision on which of the outfielders to dump. Jay to IL, Eloy called up to the big leagues.

    Should the White Sox experiment with the "opener"?

    It may make for more balanced lineups, rather than the LH or RH heavy lineups you see against certain pitchers

    If you position it to a starter correctly, they may go for it. We've announced Jace Fry as the opener. They've went with 6 righties and 3 lefties. I'm putting in you Carson Fulmer in the second inning as they only have 3 lefties in the lineup. Carson Fulmer is going to love going up hitters he has more of a chance of getting out. It maximises the matchups. I could see teams like the Rays or the A's using this in a few years time if the rosters are expanded. It would cause a huge outcry from the players union but Owners would love it as potentially it would reduce the payroll for pitchers.

    I'm not saying it's a good idea but a team with a low payroll such the Rays, it would work for. It may be the future, especially if rosters get expanded.

    Should the White Sox experiment with the "opener"?

    It's an interesting idea that could be abused if done correctly. Think about it. You have an opener who pitches the first inning, then depending on how they set up their line up, depends on what "long reliever you use". Make all your starters "long relievers and you can get the six innings when you want from them. Even replace the opener for the 2nd inning with another reliever before bringing in your long guy. You have a flexible 13 man pitching squad, one you utilise when you need it. It would need an inventive manager to manage it properly though. I wonder if Tampa Bay may eventually try this.

    The Angels have reported him to MLB for tampering. He could get a fine. https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2019/03/angels-notify-mlb-of-harper-comments-on-trout-recruitment.html

    Rutherford is lightning. Looks like he could pick up a few infield hits.
