A pretty big news dump for the Chicago White Sox this Friday afternoon. Starting with the most pressing is, officially, Tim Anderson is on the 10-day Injured List with a sprained ankle. With it being retroactive to June 26th, if Anderson’s ankle feels better in a week, there is a chance he could be back for the Cubs series. If not, then Anderson will get a few more days of rest during the All-Star Break. The White Sox have a pretty arduous road trip after the break visiting Oakland, Kansas City, and then Tampa for ten games.
The second news item first reported by Mark Feinsand of MLB.com yesterday is Yonder Alonso being designated for assignment is official. No word yet if his charity bowling tournament scheduled this weekend with White Sox charities is still happening.
With Anderson on the mend and Alonso off the team, Rick Hahn purchased the contract of starting pitcher Ross Detwiler and recalled outfielder Daniel Palka. In eight starts with the Charlotte Knights, Detwiler 3.98 ERA and a high LOB% of 91.4%. His FIP was 6.21, and his HR/9 was 2.3, so hopefully, those numbers stay behind in Charlotte. MLB.com’s White Sox beat reporter, Scott Merkin, is reporting that Detwiler will start tonight against the league leader in home runs, the Minnesota Twins.

Palka didn’t have the extreme home and away splits like his Knights counterparts, but still struggled against left-handed pitching.

In 2019 MLB Draft news, third-round pick Andrew Dalquist has officially signed with the White Sox according to our good friend, Jim Callis. The amount is $2 million, which is well over the slot value of $755,300, and it buys him out of his college commitment with Arizona.
3rd-rder Andrew Dalquist signs with @WhiteSox for $2 mil (pick 81 value = $755,300). California HS RHP, took nice step forward this spring, 91-95 mph fastball, curveball shows flashes of becoming a plus pitch. Arizona recruit. @MLBDraft— Jim Callis (@jimcallisMLB) June 28, 2019
Finally, with MLB All-Star starters announced yesterday, the Futures Game rosters were released. Luis Robert and Nick Madrigal will be representing the White Sox which looks like a no-brainer when seeing how well they are performing in Birmingham.
