Garcia and Rienzo Give Sox a Glimpse of the Future

Today’s News

Tonight’s Game

White Sox Welcome Garcia, Three Other Prospects With Open Arms

By now you know that after last’s night’s game, we completed a three-team deal with the Tigers and Red Sox. We traded Jake Peavy and acquired 22-year-old top outfield prospect Avisail Garcia from Detroit as well as minor league infielder Cleulius Rondon and pitching prospects Francelis Montas and Jeffery Wendelken from Boston.

GM Rick Hahn shared his excitement about obtaining Garcia, whose first name is pronounced “ah-VEE-saah-EEL”:

“We truly feel this is a five-tool player, someone who is not only going to hit, hit for average, but hit for power, can run well and play above average defense. He’s still young and has a little bit of development ahead of him, but we feel we’ve acquired someone with a great deal of upside who will have a big impact on the South Side for many years to come.”

Garcia, who will be assigned to Class AAA Charlotte to get regular at bats, is hitting .380 with seven doubles, three triples, six homers, 27 RBI and 32 runs scored over 39 games with both Class AAA Toledo and Class A Lakeland (where he appeared in six games on a rehab assignment recovering from a bruised heel). Between the two stops, the 6-foot-4, 240-pound righthanded hitter, had a .424 on-base and .561 slugging percentage. He was Detroit’s Minor League Player of the Year in 2012 and entered the season as the No. 2 prospect in the Tigers organization. In his brief experience in the major leagues (53 games in 2012-13) he is hitting .269 with three homers and 13 RBI. He actually made his big-league debut last August vs. the Sox.

The switch-hitting Rondon, who is 19, is hitting .276 with Class A Lowell in the Boston system. From Venezuela, he has split time between shortstop and third base, playing primarily at short. 

Montas, 20, is from the Dominican Republic. He has 96 strikeouts over 19 games with Class A Greenville this season and has K’d 171 in 49 games over four seasons. 

Wendelken, 20, was a 13th round draft choice in 2012. Known as J.B., he is 2-0 with a 2.77 ERA with 10 saves and 54 strikeouts over 27 appearances with Greenville this season. He is 4-0 with a 2.40 ERA, 12 saves and 82 strikeouts in 40 relief appearances in two seasons. 

Rondon, Montas and Wendelken all will report to Class A Kannapolis.

Avisail is Happy, Too

@AvisailGarcia34: I’m also looking fwd to my new journey in the @whitesox organization and I am very grateful for this opportunity.. #Chicago here we come!

Jordan Danks Recalled

Outfielder Jordan Danks has been recalled from Class AAA Charlotte to replace Peavy on the 25-man roster.

Play of the Day

Andre Rienzo, who last night became the first native Brazilian to pitch in the major leagues, was impressive in his debut. In seven innings, he allowed just five hits while striking out six without giving up an earned run.

Quote of the Day

Robin commenting on Rienzo’s solid debut:

“The kid was good. For all the excitement he had of having his first start, he was great. The one inning there was a little blip (the fifth when three unearned runs scored and he was spiked at first base)…but coming back that next inning with energy and composure was big. He’s got a neat little personality, brings his own energy, gets everybody into it. It was fun seeing him pitch.”

Tomorrow’s Schedule

White Sox vs. Indians at Progressive Field (11:05 p.m., CT, CSN). Starters: LHP Chris Sale (6-10, 2.69) for the Sox, RHP Justin Masterson (12-7, 3.42) for Cleveland.

Memories

Ron KIttle, the A.L. Rookie of the Year in 1983, will throw out the ceremonial first pitch before tonight’s game as part of the on-going celebration of the ’83 “Winning Ugly” Sox. Here, Kitty reminisces about that championship season.

 
Robin Debriefs ESPN
 
Prior to tonight’s game, RV met with a small army of ESPN broadcasters, reporters and producers to talk about the team’s season to date and this evening’s starter Chris Sale. Among his comments, Ventura confirmed just how much losing Gordon Beckham has hurt the team’s defense.
 
Wells vs. Wilson
 
It’s no wonder why Sox outfielder Casper Wells is in the lineup tonight against C.J. Wilson. In his career, Wells has gone 4-9 (.444) with two doubles, two homers, two RBI and three walks (.583 OBP and 1.333 SLG).

Jose Quintana had another solid outing last night in the 3-2 loss to the Angels, working six 
innings and allowing two earned runs, five hits and a walk while striking out five. On top of that, Quintana executed a perfect pickoff play to surprise L.A. standout Mike Trout.
 
Tomorrow’s Schedule
 
White Sox vs. Twins at Target Field, Minneapolis (7:10 p.m., CT, CSN). Starters: Hector 
Santiago (1-1) for the Sox, Pedro Hernandez (1-0) for the Twins.

…that brothers John and Jordan Danks were both in the lineup this afternoon for the Class AAA Charlotte Knights vs. the visiting Pawtucket Red Sox? John, in another rehab stint, earned the victory with six innings of work, allowing two earned runs, seven hits, three walks and five strikeouts. Jordan, just optioned to the Knights by the Sox, certainly had his brother’s back with a pair of hits, three RBI and an outstanding catch in centerfield in the 6- 4 win.

The Game

Final: White Sox 2, Royals 1 (11 innnings)

Highlights: Jordan Danks’ long solo homer in the 11th proved to be the game-winner in a very sweet victory…The Sox loaded the bases in the ninth on singles by Jeff Keppinger, Alex Rios and Adam Dunn and with two outs tied the score at 1-1 on an Alexei Ramirez single…After giving up a run in the first inning and throwing 57 pitches through two, Chris Sale settled down and was superb, going 7.1 innings. He gave up just six hits, didn’t allow a walk and struck out five. His pitch count ended up at 119, tying a career high…Matt Lindstrom (0.2), Matt Thornton (1.0), Jesse Crain (1.0) and Addison Reed (1.0) pitched scoreless ball in the final 3.2 innings. Reed got credit for his 11th save.

Surgery for Gavin

Gavin Floyd will undergo season-ending surgery tomorrow in New York City to repair the ulnar collateral ligament and a torn flexor muscle in his elbow. Expected recovery time for the 30-year-old Floyd is approximately 14-19 months. Surgery will be performed by Dr. David Altchek.

Viciedo Update

Dayan, on the DL with a strained oblique, starts his 4 or 5 game rehab stint tonight with Class AAA Charlotte in Columbus, OH.

Family Field Day

White Sox fans have the opportunity to experience U.S. Cellular Field like the pros on Saturday, May 18 at Family Field Day. Our annual event provides fans the chance to play catch on the outfield grass, warm-up in the bullpens and visit the dugouts. Tickets for the event are $30 per adult and $12 per child with all proceeds benefitting White Sox Charities.

Additionally, we will be holding the Garage Sale in the Patio area from 9:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. with free admission. The Garage Sale allows fans to shop for game-worn items including jerseys, game-used equipment, such as bats and gloves, along with other memorabilia. All sales from the Garage Sale benefit White Sox Charities.

Today we had the chance to catch up with long-time White Sox fan and Tinley Park native Shane Mosely. Shane has been attending Family Field Day for the last six years with his wife and son. This year, the couple has a newborn son that will experience U .S. Cellular Field for the first time at Family Field Day.

Upon chatting with Shane, he provided some insight about what drew him to the event and what keeps them coming back.

“Family Field Day is an atmosphere unparalleled by game days or other events” said Shane. “At Family Field Day, you have the opportunity to relax and explore U.S. Cellular Field surrounded by other families that are also passionate Sox fans.”

The event also allows a White Sox fan to experience the field from a player’s perspective, something that even the best seats don’t allow. Shane’s oldest son, now six, loves exploring the field—from the dugouts to the bullpen.

“He pretends to manage the team from the dugout; phone in calls and make base running signs. In the bullpen, he imagines himself warming up as a reliever.”

Family Field Day isn’t only for kids, though. Last year, the Mosley’s brought Shane’s father-in-law who, according to Shane, had more fun than anyone else there.

“He loved playing catch on the grass” said Shane. “He was able to feel like a ballplayer, even at his age”. 

Family Field Day has become a tradition for the Mosley’s and part of that tradition means stopping by the Garage Sale to purchase a game-used bat. Each year, they purchase a cracked bat—Shane noted they’re surprisingly affordable—as a memento of their experience.

“We’ve purchased something each year we’ve attended Family Field Day. It’s a perfect way to remember the event.”

Play of the Day

Mr. Danks’ extra-inning blast, which proved to be the difference. It was Jordan’s second career home run and second game-winner. Last season, on August 10 against the A’s, he became the second player in franchise history to hit his first major-league homer on a game-ending blast (Dave Gallagher did it in 1988).

Quote of the Day

Jake Peavy on his health status after missing a start due to back problems:

“I think we’re all on point to go on Wednesday night (against the Mets). I’m super excited about that. Can’t thank our training staff, Herm (Schneider) and A.T. (Allen Thomas), enough–please give them the due respect. A few days ago I didn’t feel good at all…For me to feel the way I did and only to miss one start, I can’t thank them enough getting me back out there…Hopefully we can help turn this thing around and start getting in the win column more often.”

Tomorrow’s Schedule 

White Sox vs. Mets at Citi Field, New York (6:10 p.m., CT, CSN). Starters: Hector Santiago (1-1) for the Sox, Matt Harvey (4-0) for the Mets.

Casper Wells Joins Sox

On yesterday’s off-day the White Sox acquired righthanded-hitting outfielder Casper Wells from the Oakland A’s for cash considerations. To make room on the 40-man roster, pitcher Leyson Septimo was transferred to the 60-day disabled list.

Wells, a four-year major leaguer who is a career .244 hitter with 25 homers and 80 RBI in 244 games, takes Blake Tekotte’s spot on the 25-man roster. Tekotte was optioned to Class AAA Charlotte after Sunday’s game.

In addition to the A’s, Wells has seen action with the Tigers and Mariners. Here’s what was waiting for him in his locker in Arlington:

Good Report

Dayan Viciedo, on the disabled list with a strained oblique, feels a lot better today. He took about 25 swings and didn’t have any pain.

Jordan Danks

Jordan was in the starting lineup tonight, but removed in favor of Dewayne Wise due to an inflamed bursa sac in his right knee. The lineup change was a precaution and Jordan is day-to-day.

Quote of the Day

Robin on managing with key players on the DL:

“Guys are playing hard. You try to make do and make sure everybody’s giving some constant effort. That’s all you can ask.”

Quote of the Day
 
Robin on the value of Hector Santiago, whose ERA remains at 0.00 after pitching 1.2 innings in last night’s 4-3 victory:
 
“He’s kind of like a Swiss Army knife. He’s a little bit of everything–he’s closed, he’s been in-between, been a lefty guy, been a long guy, been a starter. There’s a lot of different ways you can use him. The biggest thing is that he’s effective and he gets the job done. How we use him from this point forward, he’s probably forcing your hand to use him a little more. He’s got good stuff, he throws strikes and he gets a lot of swings and misses for a guy who throws a fastball… Personality-wise, the way he views himself, he can do a lot of different things. He has a lot of energy when he comes in the game, which is great…”

It’s Official: Chris Sale will be the Opening Day Starter

Saturday, March 16, 2013

Today’s News

Lefties Rule for Sox on Opening Day

After today’s game, Robin Ventura named Chris Sale as the Opening Day starter on April 1 vs. the Royals at the Cell. The decision means lefties will have started each of the past six Opening Days for the Sox (Danks, 2012, Buehrle 2008-11) and 14 of last 15 (the only righty was Jose Contreras in 2007).

“(Sale) will be the Opening Day starter. We feel very confident with him going forward and giving him the ball for the first game,” said Ventura, who then explained why the announcement wasn’t made earlier in the spring. “(We wanted) him to get his work in and get ready to go. (This is now) something for him to get motivated the last two weeks and get out there and go. He’s ready to do that.”

What a Difference Three Years Make

Just for fun, I looked up April 1, 2010 to see what Sale was doing then. Couldn’t tell you.

But on April 2, 2010, just three years ago, he started Game 1 of a doubleheader for Florida Gulf Coast University against Mercer. Sale earned the victory in the 9-1 FGC win, striking out 14 over 8.0 IP, allowing just one unearned run on four hits and one walk. With the win, he improved to 4-0 on the season.

Three years later, he starts Opening Day in a Major League ballpark. Here’s how Sale looked as a Florida Gulf Coast Eagle:

20130316-194429.jpg

More Sale and a Sox Victory

Sale got credit for today’s 11-5 win over the A’s at Camelback Ranch-Glendale, working six innings. He got strong offensive support from the likes of Hector Gimenez (2-3, three RBI); Conor Gillaspie (2-3, two RBI); Jordan Danks (2-4, two RBI); Steve Tolleson (Triple, RBI, two runs scored); Jim Gallagher (1-1, RBI); Bryan Anderson (2-2, RBI); and Tyler Saladino 1-1, RBI). The Sox pounded out 17 hits after collecting 15 against the Cubs on Friday and scored 26 runs in the two games.

Quote of the Day

Robin, commenting on Dayan Viciedo’s monster day on Friday, highlighted by a grand slam homer to right-center: “He’s special when he’s hitting the ball (to the opposite field)…he’s strong enough to take it over there and put up some big numbers.”

Play of the Day

Back-to-back triples by Gimenez and Tolleson in the Sox’s four-run third inning.

Tomorrow’s Schedule

St. Patrick’s Day in Surprise: White Sox vs. Royals (3:05 p.m., Chicago time). It’ll be Zach Stewart starting for the Sox vs. the Royals’ Luis Mendoza. Jose Quintana, Hector Santiago and Jesse Crain are scheduled to pitch in a B-game at Camelback Ranch (Noon, Chicago time).

Did You Know…

…that as a result of his outstanding game at the plate today Gimenez has reached base safely in seven of his last nine games, going 11-20 (.550) with six RBI. He’s batting .500 overall this spring.

Rios to the Rescue

In Wednesday night’s WBC elimination game between Puerto Rico and Italy, Alex Rios was a key factor in PR’s 4-3 win. He singled in the eighth inning and scored the go-ahead run on Sox minor leaguer Andy Gonzalez’s infield single. Let’s hope Alex celebrates like this frequently in 2013.

Alexei’s Passion

Apparently, a certain White Sox shortstop from Cuba has a certain passion for more than just baseball.

Try the canned air horn.

A grinning Alexei Ramirez can often be heard well before he’s seen in camp over the past few days, sneaking up on unsuspecting teammates and startling them with a burst of an air phone.

Then he laughs.

Sox Still Unbeaten, Danks Takes a Step Forward and A.J. Sure Looks Different in Ranger Red, White and Blue

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

Today’s News

Sox 14, Rangers 8

The White Sox scored six runs in the third inning, assisted by five walks from Texas pitcher Cody Buckel, a Rangers error and a passed ball. Conor Gillaspie singled home two runs in the inning and Hector Gimenez drove in another with a single.  The Sox added five in the fourth highlighted by Gillaspie’s two-run triple, giving him four ribbies for the day, and RBI singles by Alex Rios and Andy Wilkins. Wilkins also singled in run No. 12 in the fifth. In the eighth inning Josh Phegley hit the lone Sox homer and Marcus Semien singled in the 14th and final run in the ninth. Starter Nestor Molina, who got credit for the win, and Brian Omogrosso each pitched two scoreless innings. Zach Stewart held Texas scoreless in 1 2/3 innings while striking out three.

Sox now stand at 2-0-2.

A Bit Surreal

As strange as it was to see A.J. Pierzynski in a Rangers uniform, batting cleanup against the White Sox today (he lined out and singled in his two plate appearances), it must have been equally as disorienting for A.J. to see Conor Gillaspie wearing No. 12  for the Sox.

In their first at bats, Dewayne Wise, Gordon Beckham, Rios and Adam Dunn were among those Sox who exchanged pleasantries with their former teammate, who was in his usual spot behind the plate.

Danks on Track

John Danks threw 50 pitches today in live BP–two groups of 25. Hitters included his younger brother Jordan, Gillaspie, Stefan Gartrell and Trayce Thompson. John seemed happy with his progress and said he has reached the point where he can focus on the pitching side of things instead of worrying about being healthy.

Danks is scheduled for a bullpen session on Friday and will make his Cactus League debut Monday against the Giants at Camelback Ranch. Here he is talking to the media after today’s outing:

20130226_103746

A Good Sign

Brent Morel, attempting to come back after missing most of last season with a back injury, made a nice diving stop down the third base line in the bottom of the seventh inning to throw out the runner–alleviating some concerns about his health.

Also Healing

Two Sox who suffered minor injuries in the last few days, Leyson Septimo (leg) and Dayan Viciedo (arm), are good to go.

Quote of the Day

Asked if brother Jordan gives input on his progress, John replied, “Yeah, (we) talk. I think more of our conversations are me talking to him (about) what I would do if I were facing him. But certainly I’ll ask him today. I threw him a couple of front door cutters and change-ups and I want to know what he saw. (We) will talk.”

Play of the Day

Let’s give it to newcomer Gillaspie, who singled, tripled and drove in four. Wearing No. 12 with Pierzynski in the house turned out to be a good omen.

Tomorrow’s Schedule

White Sox vs. Rangers at Camelback Ranch-Glendale (2:05 p.m., Chicago time). Simon Castro will start for the Sox vs. Alexi Ogando.
