White Sox Minor Keys: July 16, 2022

Oscar Colás didn’t have a starring role in the Futures Game on Saturday at Dodger Stadium, and he didn’t even have a starting role.

But he did come to the plate a couple times from off the bench during the American League’s 6-4 victory over the NL, and he put together strong plate appearances both times.

In the fourth, he replaced Gunnar Henderson and lined out to right against Braves prospect Jared Shuster at 103.3 mph. Two innings later, he faced Nationals lefty Jose A. Ferrer and shot a single throught he right side at 106.7 mph.

If you missed the game on Peacock, you can watch a replay of it on MLB Network at 8 a.m.

Does Montgomery have a nickname yet? If not, I cornily nominate The Count, because we’re counting his on-base streak and he’s working the pitch count.

Joliet Orange Sox

I’m pretty sure his nickname either is or will be Monty much like Dondi in the comics hung out with Web Webster and Baldy Baldwin.
