Rymer Liriano has elected free agency.

The former highly-touted prospect has seen just 167 plate appearances at the big league level in his career, slashing a mere .220/.293/.287 with two homers and 12 RBI. He's still talented enough that there should be clubs willing to take a shot on him on a minor league deal.

Cody Asche has elected free agency.

The 27-year-old didn't see much big league action in 2017, hitting just .105/.177/.175 in 57 at-bats. With his ability to play third base as well as the corner outfield, he could attract some suitors on the free agent market.
Oct 21 - 12:27 PM

Rob Brantly has elected free agency.

The 28-year-old had a nice showing with the White Sox in September, slashing .290/.389/.516 with a pair of homers and five RBI. That could be enough to earn him a shot at competing for a reserve role someplace during the spring.
Oct 21 - 12:23 PM

David Holmberg has elected free agency.

The 26-year-old saw his first extended action in the big leagues in 2017, registering a 4.68 ERA, 1.68 WHIP and 33/34 K/BB ratio in 57 2/3 innings. He'll look to latch on elsewhere on a minor league deal.
Oct 21 - 12:21 PM

Chris Volstad has elected free agency.

The 31-year-old right-hander appeared in six games (two starts) for the White Sox in 2017, posting a 4.66 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 10/5 K/BB ratio across 19 1/3 innings. He was able to prove that he still has something left in the tank and should attract some interest this winter.
Oct 21 - 12:18 PM

Jean Machi has elected free agency.

The 35-year-old hurler made it back to the big leagues for the first time in two years, posting a 1.17 ERA and 1.44 WHIP in 7 2/3 innings with the Mariners. He could attract some interest on a minor league deal for teams that are starving for bullpen depth.

Jake Petricka had a nerve transposition in his right elbow on Friday.

The operation was performed by Dr. James Andrews. Petricka will begin a throwing program in 3-4 months, so he should have a relatively normal spring training if all goes well during his rehab.

Former White Sox pitcher Daniel Webb was killed in an ATV accident on Saturday evening.

The 28-year-old right-hander appeared in 94 games with the White Sox from 2013-2016, compiling a 4.50 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 93/69 K/BB ratio in 110 innings before undergoing Tommy John surgery. Our deepest condolences go out to his friends and family at this difficult time.

Nick Delmonico will be shut down for 3-4 weeks as he recovers from shoulder inflammation.

Delmonico injured his shoulder in the last week of the regular season. The 25-year-old utility player batted .262/.373/.482 with nine home runs over his first 43 major league games this season with the White Sox, though his minor league numbers suggest he's in for some regression in 2018.

Charlie Tilson (ankle) will play in the instructional league for the second straight day on Tuesday.

Tilson missed the entire 2017 season with a navicular stress fracture in his right foot, but he's finally getting back to normal. With the White Sox rebuilding, the 24-year-old speedster should be in the mix for an outfield spot next spring.
Oct 10 - 12:55 PM

White Sox sent OF Rymer Liriano outright to Triple-A Charlotte.

Liriano batted just .220/.304/.341 in 46 plate appearances this season with Chicago. The 26-year-old former top prospect will be a free agent this winter.
Oct 4 - 2:52 PM

White Sox sent LHP David Holmberg outright to Triple-A Charlotte.

Holmberg struggled this season as both a starter and reliever and owns a career 5.49 ERA and 1.68 WHIP in 119 2/3 total major league innings. The 26-year-old left-hander will be a free agent this winter.
Oct 4 - 2:51 PM

White Sox sent RHP Chris Volstad outright to Triple-A Charlotte.

Volstad will become a minor league free agent in November. The well-traveled 31-year-old right-hander holds a 4.92 ERA and 1.44 WHIP in 725 career innings at the major league level.
Oct 4 - 2:49 PM

White Sox sent RHP Brad Goldberg outright to Triple-A Charlotte.

Goldberg will remain in the White Sox organization, though he is now off the 40-man roster. The 27-year-old right-hander posted an ugly 8.25 ERA in 12 innings of relief this season with the major league club.
Oct 4 - 2:47 PM

White Sox sent C Rob Brantly outright to Triple-A Charlotte.

Brantly homered in the final game of the regular season, but the 28-year-old former prospect has been a disappointment overall as a major leaguer. He owns a .230/.294/.333 career batting line.
