The fresh week of minor league action opened with Oscar Colás and Colson Montgomery still in roster limbo. Both are still listed as active, but neither has played in a considerable amount of time (Colás last appeared April 28, Montgomery April 24).
In the meantime, the White Sox made a few other minor transactions of note:
*Luis Basabe was released by the Sox after an ugly start to his organizational return. he went 2-for-25 with one walk and 15 strikeouts with the Knights.
*Lincoln Henzman received a promotion to Charlotte, as he’s experiencing more success in his return to the bullpen. He couldn’t miss enough bats to survive in the rotation, but pitching for the first time since 2019, Henzman looked like somebody who’d closed in college. He struck out 13 against four walks over 11 innings with the Barons, picking up a couple saves. His introduction to Triple-A relief work was considerably rougher, as you’ll see below.
*Rafael Dolis joined the White Sox on a minor league contract. The 34-year-old righty has appeared in five different seasons between 2011 and 2021, most recently with the Toronto Blue Jays. He still averages 94-95, but walks are a problem.
*Brody Koerner doesn’t throw hard, but the White Sox transaction page says the club also acquired him. The 28-year-old righty completed his own lengthy climb from the 15th round to pitch in a couple of games for the Yankees last year, but he had to settle for a contract with Dos Laredos of the Mexican League to open this season. He averaged 89 mph with his fastball lsat year, using a cutter to throw hitters off his harder stuff.
- Adam Haseley went 1-for-5 with a triple.
- Yolbert Sánchez was 2-for-5 with two strikeouts.
- Yoán Moncada played third and went 1-for-4 with a K.
- Carlos Pérez struck out for the second time this year, but he also homered twice during a 3-for-5 day.
- Wes Benjamin got a dose of regression: 3.2 IP, 7 H, 7 R, 7 ER, 4 BB, 3 K, 4 HR. His ERA is now 3.38.
- Lincoln Henzman’s Triple-A debut: 1 IP, 3 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 0 K.
*Pérez is now hitting .321/.348/.631 after these dingers:
- Lenyn Sosa went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts.
- Yoelqui Céspedes, 1-for-4 with a strikeout.
- Jose Rodriguez went 0-for-4.
- Jason Bilous: 6 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 6 K, 1 HR
- Bryan Ramos started a new hitting streak by going 2-for-5 with a double.
- Luis Mieses was 0-for-4 with a walk and a strikeout.
- Adam Hackenberg went 1-for-5 with two strikeouts.
- Harvin Mendoza had a perfect night at the plate, going 4-for-4 while coming up a double short of the cycle.
- Matthew Thompson: 5 IP, 9 H, 6 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 4 K, 1 HR
*Thompson gave up all six runs in the fourth inning. Only one was earned, but Thompson allowed five consecutive hitters to reach after Ramos’ error extended the inning, so he wasn’t completely blameless.
- James Beard went 0-for-4 with a walk and two strikeouts.
- Wes Kath, 2-for-5 with two strikeouts.
- DJ Gladney was 0-for-3 with a walk.
- Wilfred Veras went 1-for-4.
- Noah Owen: 4 IP, 8 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 0 BB, 7 K, 3 HR
