The Chicago White Sox Rebuild

With the White Sox having one of the best farm systems in baseball at this writing March 5, 2018 I will take you back to before it started, February 26th 2016.

From that date until I get to the beginning of the 2018 season I will make only the trades and transactions on the date they actually happened in real life as close as the game will let me.

When we get to the start of the 2018 season I will then take over as the GM making all decisions on trades and signings. I will update the team performance every 20 games or so and add a year end recap as well as a pre-season preview. Here we go......

The Sox pitching staff to start the 2016 season
Chris Sale
Jose Quintana
Carlos Rodon
Miguel Gonzalez
Anthony Ranaudo

Starting Lineup
CF Adam Eaton
SS Tim Anderson
1B Jose Abreu
3B Todd Frazier
LF Melky Cabrera
2B Brett Lawrie
RF Avasail Garcia
C Alex Avila

The Yankees sweep the Dodgers to win the 2016 World Series

The offseason gets started i the week of November 3 as the Sox grant 16 players free agency, most of them minor leaguers, but include ML players RP Matt Albers, C Alex Avila SP Anthony Ranaudo and OF Austin Jackson.

They do pick up C Giovani Soto off waivers from Oakland on Nov. 7th

On December 6th the Sox pull off the blockbuster trade to get the rebuild rolling as they send their ace SP Chris Sale to the Boston Red Sox for 4 prospects including #1 ML prospect Yoan Moncada as well as top pitching prospect Michael Kopech. The Red Sox also added OF Luis Alexander Basabe and SP Victor Diaz.

The very next day the call is the the Washington Nationals as they send RF Adam Eaton for 3 top pitching prospects, Lucas Giolito, Reynaldo Lopez and Dane Dunning.

The Sox made several minor free agent signings in the off season the most notable include
SP Mike Pelfrey
RP Anthony Swarzak

on to spring training 2017......

The 2017 Season begins

Starting Rotation
James Shields
Carlos Rodon
Jose Quintana
Derek Holland
Mike Pelfrey

Starting Lineup
3B Tyler Saladino
SS Tim Anderson
1B Jose Abreu
LF Melky Cabrera
RF Avasail Garcia
2B Carlos Sanchez
DH Matt Davidson
CF Charlie Tilson
C Giovany Soto

First 25 games have the Sox at 8-17, team pitching ranks surprisingly in the top 10, but offense is dead last in the AL.

Abreu starts off hot hitting .330, but LF Melky Cabrera goes down with injury and will be out at least 3 months and CF Charlie Tillson will be out 3-4 weeks. Sox call up CF Adam Engel and LF Jason Coats.

A 17-36 record through June 1st, the worst record in the Major Leagues
Offense still an issue last in HR's and runs scored
Starting pitching ranks next to last, the bullpen is middle of the pack

Pelfrey's 9.31 ERA gets a demotion to the pen Kolmberg goes to the rotation with his 3.21 ERA.

Abreu .319 and Saladino .300 the only offensive bright spots



OF Jason Coats injured out 3-4 weeks, OF Jacob May called up from AAA
May 2th Ryan Rayburn was traded to the Pirates, he was hitting .156
June 9th Giovany Soto was released
also on that day Alen Hanson was picked up on waivers from Pittsburgh and placed on ML roster, Jacob May sent to AAA

28-61 through July 9, the big news is the transaction in July

July 9th big trade with the Cubs as they send Jose Quintana for 4 prospects,OF Eloy Jimenez, SP Dylan Cease and Inf. Bryan Flete and Matt Rose.

6 days later David Robertson and Tommy Kahnle sent to the Yankees for OF Blake Rutherford and Tyler Clippard

Injuries make things even more difficult as recently signed OF Alen Hanson goes out for 6 weeks and Yolmer Sanchez joins him and is out 5 weeks.

Sox call up a developing prospect CF Aaron Schnurbusch and 2B Bradley Strong

Jason Coats comes off the DL and Charlie Tilson is optioned to AAA

Finish off the month with 2 wins and no longer have the worst record (47-85) in baseball as the Padres and Pirates battle it out for the #1 pick in the draft.

Giolito has 5 starts in August, 3 quality starts and a couple bad ones including a 4 IP game against the Red Sox where he allowed 8 runs, 8 hits. His record goes to 2-5 ERA 4.95.

After Sox catchers have averaged right around the Mendoza line, Sept. call up Kevan Smith has hit .282 in 21 starts.

Notable September Call ups
SP Michael Kopech
SP Reynaldo Lopez
2B Yoan Moncada
1B Casey Gillaspie
CF Blake Rutherford
