Article says sox at 35 on the 40 roster with  Eloy, Gillaspie, Peter, Guerrero, Brian Clark, Polo & Ian Clarkin all due to be put on the 40.

Aren't Adams & Stephens due also?

I'd cut Jacob May and someone else.

Tough choices.

The WhiteSox have acquired minor-league pitcher Thyago Vieira from the Seattle Mariners in exchange for international signing bonus pool money.

Oakland interested in Avisail Garcia.

I'm in the "Trade Avi" camp.


Not me and if IRCC I was the only one who didn't want to trade/non-tender him last off-season. 

Keep Avi and hope last season was his breakout and not a fluke year.  Maybe, just maybe, trade him mid-season if Eloy is considered ready to join the major league club.

I'm on the fence. One side says trade him while his value is high and the other side says maybe there is still an upside and hold off. The bottom line is he is still an unknown and its hard to tell which is the real Avi. I am sure not going to cry and whine if he is moved. We tolerated the bad Avi long enough.

can't believe the Sox put Basabe on the 40 roster. What a stupid move. No one is going to use a Rule 5 pick on a guy who sucked in single A.

Hope we don't lose anyone.

Putting Basabe isn't the problem. I would have done the same given the Padres Rule 5 picks last year. The problem I had was keeping guys like Putnum, Petricka, Saladino, Hansen, etc. on the 40.

Hopefully do not lose the LP Guerrero or the Inf Peter, I would have cut some others off the list (as Juan said)

just can't see protecting a guy that sucked in A ball. Peter, Clark, Guerrero & Polo are all more likely to play in the majors next year than fricking

Those guys will probably be cut/demoted/downgraded later.

If its going to happen later, that won't help us keep Guerrero and Peter. The 40 man roster is now frozen for the rule 5 draft

Cards are looking for a OF, wonder what we'd have to add to Avi to get Carson Kelly.

Boston is interested in dealing for Abreau according to this link too:

https://chicago.suntimes.com/sports/jose-abreu-trade-white-sox-red-sox/

I will say this, that he has improved defensively since coming to the White Sox. I really am not totally opposed to a trade.

White Sox sign Welington Castillo.  Two years + club option.

We need to sign a lot of Rob Scahill type of players.

Always liked Wellington Castillo's hitting, kinda surprised we signed a catcher - thought our catchers were a pleasant surprise last year.
