Welington Castillo’s suspension puts White Sox in tough spot

Welington Castillo’s 80-game suspension for violating MLB’s joint drug agreement, which was first reported by Dominican reporter Americo Celado and confirmed by The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal, puts the White Sox in a position of both dealing with and reacting to a player being hit with such a punishment, as well as stuck with a roster hole […]

Hitting development still the key to the White Sox future

We’ve written about it several times in the past, but one of the more interesting changes in player acquisitions we’ve seen in recent years, coincidentally or not, is the White Sox targeting position players who are at or close to major league-ready.
