Not too shocking if he’s going to miss a chunk of the season. They could re-sign him to a minor league deal.

This was also my thought, if he’s not going to be 100% to start the year then you don’t want him on a guaranteed deal where you only can do a rehab stint with him.

Can anyone explain why they tendered Ruiz? 

Bueller? Bueller? Anyone? 

I probably would have too. He will only get like $1 million and they don’t have bullpen depth that is even as good as him.

Ruiz at that salary and as the ~7th or 8th best reliever in the pen is fine, but I think you'd get more use from that spot going with a slightly worse pitcher who has options remaining to maintain roster flexibility. Tendering Ruiz puts the Sox in a position where almost no one in the pen can be optioned during the season.

That’s a bargain for him too. He’s out of options though and the bullpen is full. 

Eh, a -0.1 WAR pitcher last year might be hard for the white Sox to replace, but that’s still not a bargain.
