White Sox complete 9 Spring Training roster moves

by Jordan Lazowski

As the White Sox creep closer to Opening Day in a few weeks, they have made their latest round of roster moves that will ultimately bring them to their 26-man roster to begin the season in Houston. Today, the club announced nine cuts following their tie with the Angels 1-1:

  • Optioned Carlos Perez and Lenyn Sosa to Triple-A Charlotte
  • Optioned Bryan Ramos and Jose Rodriguez to Double-A Birmingham
  • Re-assigned Yoelqui Cespedes, Edgar Navarro, Nate Fisher, Andrew Perez, and Sammy Peralta to minor league camp

With the moves, the White Sox’ Spring Training roster now sits at 50.

Among the nine players listed, Bryan Ramos has seen some of the most action this Spring thanks to Yoan Moncada spending time playing for Team Cuba in the World Baseball Classic. In 21 Spring Training plate appearances, Ramos hit .368/.429/.526 with one home run, three strikeouts, and two walks. After being part of Project Birmingham to end last season, Ramos will start his age-21 season in Double-A in what will be his biggest challenge yet.

As for the other players listed, we didn’t get to see too much from any of them. Here are their 2023 Spring Training statistics:

  • Sosa: 15 PA, .133/.133/.133, 0 HR, 2 RI
  • C. Perez: 9 PA, .375/.444/.500. 0 HR, 3 RBI
  • Rodriguez: 8 PA: .125/.125/.125, 0 HR, 0 RBI
  • Cespedes: 1 PA, .000/.000/.000, 0 HR, 0 RBI
  • Navarro: 5 G, 0-0, 9.00 ERA, 3 BB, 5 K
  • Fisher: 3 G, 3.38 ERA, 0 BB, 4 K
  • A. Perez: 3 G, 6.00 ERA, 0 BB, 4 K
  • Peralta: 3 G, 3.00 ERA, 1 BB, 4 K

White Sox fans will likely be most closely watching Lenyn Sosa and Jose Rodriguez, two players who figure to be part of the second base puzzle not too far into the future. Perez functions as the team’s third-string catcher, and at any point, could see some time in the major leagues. Yoelquis Cespedes was briefly discussed among fans as a fourth outfielder for the team this season, however, the club ultimately wants to see more seasoning from him before bringing him to the major league roster. As for Navarro, Fisher, Perez, and Peralta, all four figure to be moved to Triple-A Charlotte for the season and could easily find themselves getting time at the major league level due to injury/ineffectiveness in the bullpen.
