White Sox Minor Keys: May 14, 2022

After just about three full weeks out of action due to a bone bruise in his hand, Colson Montgomery returned to the Kannapolis lineup on Friday.

Montgomery improved upon the .236/.353/.382 line he carried into the game with a 2-for-5 night, singling twice and striking out twice. He tried to boost the slugging line with hopes of stretching a single into a double, but he was cut down at second.

Charlotte 12, Indianapolis 2

  • Jake Burger had a perfect night at the plate: 3-for-3 with a homer and three walks.
  • Adam Haseley was 1-for-4 with a homer, walk and strikeout.
  • John Parke in relief: 5 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 9 K


*Yermín Mercedes was ejected arguing balls and strikes, but Charlotte has automated balls and strikes, so he didn’t even have deaf ears for airing his grievances.

Biloxi 13, Birmingham 3

  • Lenyn Sosa went 1-for-5 with a strikeout.
  • Yoelqui Céspedes was 2-for-5 with two strikeouts.
  • José Rodriguez went 0-for-4 with a K.
  • Sean Burke’s Double-A debut: 5 IP, 7 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 1 BB, 7 K, 2 HR. He opened with three scoreless innings, but the second time through gave him trouble.

Rome 7, Winston-Salem 1

  • Bryan Ramos and Adam Hackenberg both were 0-for-4.
  • Luis Mieses, 2-for-4 with a strikeout.
  • Matthew Thompson: 4 IP, 9 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, 2 HBP

Fredericksburg 7, Kannapolis 5

  • Wes Kath went 1-for-5 with a homer and a strikeout.
  • Colson Montgomery was 2-for-5 with two strikeouts in his return to the lineup.
  • Wilfred Veras had his best game yet at Low-A, going 4-for-4 with a walk.
  • Chase Krogman was 0-for-5 with a K.
  • James Beard doubled and struck out thrice.
  • Brooks Gosswein: 5 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 5 K


  • Jim Margalus

Of course Mercedes got tossed for arguing with a robot ump. That’s so on-brand for Yermin.


“I’m sorry, Yermín, I’m afraid I can’t do that.”


Yermin, don’t make the robots angry
