Who's Got Options?

Recommended Posts

With the Jay news, the OF of miscast characters becomes a bit more crowded.  It's been asked a few times who on the 40 man has options and who doesn't, so I will summarize.

Out of Options; potentially at risk of not making opening day roster

Yolmer Sanchez (not really at risk)

Jose Rondon

Leury Garcia

Manny Banuelos

Juan Minaya

Group with Options Remaining; potentially at risk (admittedly varying degrees) of not making opening day roster

Daniel Palka (1)

Adam Engel (2)

Charlie Tilson (1)

Nicky Delmonico (3!)

Ryan Cordell (1)

Caleb Frare (3)

Ian Hamilton (3)

Dylan Covey (2)

Carson Fulmer (1)

Thyago Vieria (1)

Aaron Bummer (2)

Jose Ruiz (2)

Ryan Burr (3)

James McCann (3)

 

Information complied from https://www.rosterresource.com/mlb-chicago-white-sox/ which I would definitely recommend pinning.  It has a ton of great info.

Delgado and Marshall are on MiLB deals and ST invites, so the options won’t be affected.

if they land Manny, i could see them dealing Yolmer.  Also could see them dealing Minaya to clear roster space.

Main takeaway here is the Engel, Palka and Delmonico can all be shipped to Charlotte without the risk of losing them.  When the OF gets a bit crowded when Eloy arrives (or if another OF is signed), 1 or 2 of these guys can go down to Charlotte and get everyday at bats until their name is called again.

This also guarantees that even if another OF was signed, one of them makes the opening day roster and probably starts for 2 weeks.

Really hope the Sox hang onto Rondon. He's got some sneaky pop in that bat of his. Hit 18 HR's in the minors + 6 in 100 AB with the Sox.

Dang when did Ruiz burn one?

He was first brought to the bigs by the Padres in 2017 so sending him to the minors for 2018 would have used an option.

Agree on Rondon.  If we don't sign Machado and have another semi tank year why not let him try 3b.  A little concerned it was his first year with power.  Either developed or something else

I too would like to keep Rondon around.  I think the fact that he doesn't have an option gives him a decent chance of sticking.  The Sox talked about getting him some OF playing time in winter ball - seems that was more talk than action.  He has primarily played 3B in winter ball - 208 innings at 3B, 11 at 2B, 19 in LF, 1 in CF, and 22 at SS.  

He's also been pretty dreadful with the bat in winter ball.  119 PA, .213/.269/.315 slashline - 2 homers, 5 doubles, 15 RBI, 0 steals, 8/18 BB/K ratio.
