White Sox lock up Tim Anderson with a bargain extension

Tim Anderson’s deal is the latest in a series of very team-friendly contracts the White Sox have handed out to young players recently. Over the last decade, the Tampa Bay Rays have been famous for their propensity to lock up their young talent to early long-term contracts. The comprehensive list is long and distinguished, and ranges from Carl Crawford’s $15.25-million contract...

Making Tyler Saladino a main course

Coming into the 2017 season, the White Sox infield looked fairly set. There weren’t really any questions as to who would be playing where, at least not until the service time shuffle games passed and Yoan Moncada getting called up became a realistic proposition. Jose Abreu and Todd Frazier would man the corners (until one of them — looking at you, Frazier — gets traded)....

White Sox sign Tim Anderson to 6 year/$25 MM deal

According to Colleen Kane the sides have agreed to a six year deal worth $25MM with two additional option years believed to be worth and additional $26.5MM. It may seem a bit early to buy out the pre-free agent years of someone who hasn’t yet reached...

Carlos Rodon looks like himself in spring debut

White Sox’ No. 2 starter shows no signs of rust in delayed start If you hadn’t followed Carlos Rodon’s spring and assumed that Sunday was a regular start on a regular schedule, you would have been hard-pressed to know he had been the subject of some concern. Rodon held the Angels to just one hit (a squibbed Albert Pujols single through a vacancy in the shift), one walk (to...

Can White Sox’s Michael Kopech throw 107+ mph?

One of the top prospects the Red Sox had to give up to acquire Chris Sale was Michael Kopech, who is known for lighting up radar guns. He hit 105 mph in a minor league game last year that was played in Salem, Va., one of the fastest pitches ever recorded. So it’s clear that the guy can throw some serious gas. And apparently, 105 isn’t even his ceiling. Kopech’s personal trainer...

Lucas Giolito on Striking a Balance Between Smart and Simple

For Lucas Giolito, KISS doesn’t mean Keep It Simple Stupid. Given his intellectual curiosity — picking Max Scherzer’s brain didn’t hurt — the acronym more aptly equates to Keep It Simple Smart. Giolito is now in the White Sox organization, having been acquired by Chicago from Washington in December’s Adam Eaton mini-blockbuster. Blessed with a big arm and a made-for...
