Nick Madrigal signed and made his pro debut with the White Sox on Tuesday, and that’ll get its own separate post.
Draft class aside, Thursday’s biggest news was the departure of Donny Roach. He stepped away from an All-Star season with the Charlotte Knights to explore opportunities in Japan.
He went 9-2 with a 2.65 ERA as the staff leader for Charlotte, giving up three homers in just 95 innings. He also just has 61 strikeouts over 95 innings, so if he were to get any action with the White Sox, it’d probably only come as a spot starter here in there. More MLB reps would be nice for him, but so would a guaranteed and healthy six-figure contract if he is indeed at the height of his earning potential at age 28, so I’ll be looking forward to see what he gets overseas.
