So who's the 26th man for today's doubleheader?  MLB rules allow teams to expand their roster to 26 on days they play two games.  see: https://www.baseball-reference.com/bullpen/26th_Man_Rule

Nothing is listed on the White Sox website or twitter account. Could have kept Jose Rondon active for one more day as insurance in case there is an injury in one of today's games. A's active roster only shows 25 players too.  ????

Rondon is supposedly being sent down, so that means likely Trayce is gone and that makes room for the two Garcias. Tilson and Palka should be safe.

...at least until Nicky Delmonico returns.

My favorite too is Dunning. I am hoping he is improving and moving up to the next level.

designating Trace will at least free up a spot on the 40.

Don't want to see either Tilson or Palka sitting on the bench, they need to be playing.

    On June 22 in Baseball History...


    1925 - Max Carey gets two hits in both the first and eighth innings when the Pirates beat the Cardinals at Sportsman's Park, 24-6. The feat will not be accomplished again until Rennie Stennett, also with Pittsburgh, collects two hits in one inning twice, the first and the fifth frames, in 1975.

    1926 - The Cardinals pick up 39-year-old Grover Cleveland Alexander on waivers from the Cubs to help in the pennant chase. He'll go 9-7 down the stretch.

    1932 - The National League finally approves the use of uniform numbers to identify players. Although some teams in the AL implemented digits on their jerseys on a regular basis a few seasons ago, the Senior Circuit had refused to follow suit, probably as the result of the Cardinals being harassed by opposing players and fans when they wore numerals on their sleeves in 1923.

    1936 - At Brooklyn's Ebbets Field, Ival Goodman hits an unusual home run when his fifth-inning fly ball lands and stays on top of the scoreboard in right field. With the perched ball considered in play, the three Dodger outfielders watch the Reds' right fielder round the bases for an easy inside-the park round-tripper in their 7-2 loss to Cincinnati.


    1941 - In their 5-4 victory over Detroit, the Yankees establish a new record by hitting at least one home run in 18 straight contests. Joe DiMaggio's sixth inning blast not only breaks the major league mark, previously held by the Tigers, but also continues his own consecutive game hitting streak to 35 games.

    1944 - Charley Schantz gets the win when the Phillies blank Boston for 15 innings, matching the longest shutout in franchise history. Philadelphia right-fielder Ron Northey's homer in the top of the frame scores the game's only run in the 1-0 victory at Braves Field.

    1946 - Bill Veeck heads a syndicate that purchases the Cleveland Indians. This launches Veeck on a long career as a lively promoter.

    1947 - Ewell Blackwell just misses pitching back-to-back no-hitters when Eddie Stanky of the Brooklyn Dodgers singles with one out in the ninth inning. Blackwell then gets Al Gionfriddo before Jackie Robinson bangs out a single. Blackwell wins 4-0, his ninth straight win to improve to 11-2. Stanky's hit ends Blackwell's hitless-inning skein at 19.

    1959 - Sandy Koufax goes the distance beating Philadelphia at the L.A. Memorial Coliseum, 6-2. The Dodger southpaw fans 16 Phillies to set a new record for strikeouts in a night game.

    1962 - Boog Powell becomes the first player to homer over the center field hedge at in Baltimore's Memorial Stadium.The Orioles first baseman's 469-foot blast comes off Don Schwall in the Birds 4-3 victory over Boston.

    1966 - At the Astrodome, Houston sets a home attendance mark which will last for 22 years. Dodger southpaw Sandy Koufax, who tosses a complete game to improve his record to 13-2, beats the hometown team, 5-2, in front of the 50,908 fans attending the Wednesday contest.

    1976 - Randy Jones pitches the Padres to a 4-2 win over the Giants, and ties Christy Mathewson's 63-year-old N.L. record by going 68 innings without a base on balls. He receives a standing ovation from the home crowd after striking out Darrell Evans to end the seventh. His streak ends when he walks catcher Marc Hill leading off the eighth. It is Jones's 13th win of the year.

    1977 - In a 7-4 victory over the Orioles at Memorial Stadium, the Red Sox collect their 100th round-tripper of the season, the earliest the club has ever reached the milestone. Today's homers, hit by George Scott, Jim Rice, Carlton Fisk (2) and Butch Hobson all off Jim Palmer, contribute to a major league record of 29 home runs launched by one club in a span of eight consecutive games.

    1979 - With the Orioles trailing 5-3, going into the bottom of the ninth inning, Doug DeCinces hits a two-out walk-off home run off reliever Dave Tobik to give the team a 6-5 victory over the Tigers at Memorial Stadium. The win is credited for triggering the start of "Oriole Magic”, igniting an atmosphere of unbridled enthusiasm in the Charm City for the franchise.


    1982 - Pete Rose doubles off John Stuper in the third inning of a 3-2 loss to the Cardinals for his 3,772nd career hit, moving him past Hank Aaron into second place on baseball's all-time list.

    1984 - In a teary home plate ceremony before the Twins-White Sox game at the Metrodome, Calvin Griffith and his sister, Thelma Haynes, sign a letter of intent to sell their 52 percent ownership of the Twins to Minneapolis banker Carl Pohlad for $32 million. Griffith and his sister had been involved with the franchise since 1922, when owner Clark Griffith of the then-Washington Senators adopted them.


    1987 - Tom Seaver abandons his comeback attempt with the injury-riddled Mets and retires with a career record of 311-205, an ERA of 2.86, 3,640 strikeouts, and 61 shutouts.

    1990 - The last-place Braves fire manager Russ Nixon and replace him with general manager Bobby Cox, who last managed Toronto in 1985.

    1993 - On his final day as a professional baseball player, 45 year-old White Sox backstop Carlton Fisk catches his 2,226th game to surpass Bob Boone as the all-time leader. 'Pudge' played the first 11 seasons in his 24-year major league career with the Red Sox.



    1994 - Hitting his 31st home run of the season, Ken Griffey Jr. breaks Babe Ruth's record for most homers before July 1. Although the Yankee slugger needed only 63 games to reach 30 homers in 1928 and 68 games in 1930, Junior accomplishes the feat in the Mariners' 70th game of the season.

    1994 - In the Mets' 5-2 victory at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium, southpaw closer John Franco picks up his 253rd save‚ breaking Dave Righetti's record for most saves by a lefthander.. The first two Braves' batters in the lineup, Roberto Kelly and Jeff Blauser‚ both hit home runs off New York starter Pete Smith, but the back-to-back first inning round-trippers will prove to be the only scoring done by the team for the rest of the game.

    1998 - At Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, the Marlins defeat the Devil Rays in an inter-league contest, 3-2. The Citrus Series contest marks the first time the two major league teams from Florida have faced one another in the regular season.

    1999 - Although he has been dead for fifty-one years, Hack Wilson is awarded another RBI increasing his major league RBI record to 191. The commissioner's office revises the total after baseball's historian Jerome Holtzman discovered the Cubs outfielder did not get credit for driving in Kiki Cuyler with a third-inning single inning in a game played in July of 1930.

    2001 - The Braves trade John Rocker along with minor league third baseman Troy Cameron to the Indians in a four-player deal in return for relievers Steve Karsay and Steve Reed as well as cash. The Atlanta fireballer became a national figure after his negative comments about New Yorkers, homosexuals, unwed moms and immigrants appeared in Sports Illustrated.

    2002 - Commissioner Bud Selig decides to postpone the scheduled game between St. Louis and the Cubs when pitcher Darryl Kile is found dead in his Chicago hotel room. The 33-year old Cardinal pitcher is found dead in his Chicago hotel room apparently dying from natural causes as no signs of forced entry or foul play are found.


    2006 = Opposing a pitcher who was born in the year before he began in major league career, Roger Clemens makes his much-hyped season debut against the Twins. The 'Rocket', starting his 23-year major league season, is bested by Francisco Liriano, a 22-year-old pitching sensation from the Dominican Republic, as Minnesota beats the Astros, 4-2.

    2007 - The fifth longest consecutive game streak in baseball history comes to an end at 1,152 as Migel Tejada sits out when Baltimore plays the Diamondbacks in Arizona. The Oriole shortstop, who was struck by San Diego's Doug Brocail two games ago resulting in non-displaced fracture of the left radius, continued his streak yesterday with an attempted sac bunt, but was lifted for a pinch runner in the first inning.

    2010 - The Milwaukee Brewers released Brian Bruney.

    2011 - The Marlins tie the franchise record for most losses in a month when they are beat by the Angels in 10 innings, 6-5. The defeat is team's 20th out of 22 decisions in June.

    2011 - In the nightcap of a twin bill split with New York, Chris Heisey blasts three homers and drives in half of the Reds' runs in the team's 10-2 inter-league rout of the Bronx Bombers. The Cincinnati leadoff hitter goes deep off Brian Gordon in the first and fifth, and in the eighth frame connects off Hector Noesi in the Great American Ball Park contest.

    2016 - The Chicago White Sox claimed Juan Minaya from Houston Astros on waivers.

Avi G is going to be activated for the next game, if it ever stops raining.   Guessing this means bye bye Trace.

Leury G also close to coming back as well.

Trayce and either Tilson or Palka will be off the 25-man roster when Leury is activated. Neither Avi or Leury were in the lineup tonight for the Knights so both of them might already be heading back to Chicago.
