Tim Elko cant stop wont stop 2-4 330 ave 1000 ops


That’s just so weird, seeing a Sox catcher with good pop skills.

White Sox Wade

Don’t worry, this organization will screw him up. I’ll give it one off-season.

Augusto Barojas

I hope the Sox keep Sosa at AAA the rest of the year. I’m really interested in seeing what Andrus can do.


Apparently, these guys were released from the organization, yesterday. Luke Schilling was supposed to have a crazy arm, but was always injured, and Evan Skoug was a bat-first catcher who fell to the Sox in the 7th round. He never hit.

C Keegan Fish
3B Taylor Snyder
INF Layant Tapia
RHP Luke Shilling
RHP Brian Carrion
RHP Eric Hildebrand
LHP Jose Jimenez
LHP Ben Holmes
C Anthony Espinoza
C Evan Skoug
INF Kean Wong


Luke was definitely a feel good story coming back from major Lat surgery to resign with the organization. Its sad injuries never let him really get up to speed


Obviously a tiny sample size, but none of the tradees the White Sox received have had good starts with the team. Hopefully Nastrini, Lee, and Eder have better luck in their debuts.


Tiny? LOL.


Scouting report on Quero throwing is that he’s not got a cannon for an arm, but he gets it out quickly and he’s really accurate with his throws. Was on display both times there: knee to thigh high and slightly on the 1st base side of 2nd, textbook placement, and Popeye mostly just has to catch it and hold on for the out. He’s not gonna make up for runners getting great jumps, but a guy doesn’t get one, he’s toast.

Knowing the reputation, it’ll freeze a lot of the running game against.


Arbitrary endpoints
Montgomery 6/19 – 7/24
.384/.567/.603 26% BB 11.5% K
7/25 – 8/1
.217/.357/.435 17.9% BB 35.7% K
Obviously he’s been in higher levels in the second split than the first, which includes the ACL.


Bryan Ramos, when not injured, has been great since AA went back to the regular ball.


Korey Lee is starting at DH in the first game of Charlotte’s doubleheader. Nick Nastrini is on regular (pitching once a week) rest and I wonder if he’s available to pitch in the second game of Birmingham’s double header today.
