White Sox Update: Roster Moves, Kopech, Grifol, Schultz

by Tim Moran

Monday featured reassignments of some big names in White Sox camp, as well as a rather uneventful 7-2 loss to the Colorado Rockies. Pedro Grifol‘s club now boasts the worst spring training record and run differential.

Elsewhere, Grifol expressed impatience with the team’s struggles and Sox staff discussed Noah Schultz’s roadmap for 2024.

White Sox re-assign Colson Montgomery, Bryan Ramos, others

The Sox announced seven roster moves Monday morning. Montgomery, Tim Elko, and Carlos Perez remained in Arizona at the minor league camp. Meanwhile, Ramos and a trio of three prospects were optioned to Double-A Birmingham and Triple-A Charlotte, respectively. Perhaps the most interesting piece is Zach DeLoach getting sent down, as some felt the 25-year-old outfielder had a shot at cracking camp with the South Siders.

Sox fall to Rockies 7-2

Looking to build off prior encouraging starts, Michael Kopech took the mound Monday for Chicago. Yet the hard-throwing righty was battered to the tune of a 2.1 IP, 4 ER, 4 H, 2 BB, 2 K final line, surrendering two bombs in the process. Notably, Tanner Banks and Prelander Berroa threw 1.2 and 0.1 scoreless innings late in the game.

Offensively, only Paul DeJong and Gavin Sheets stood out. DeJong bashed his second homer of the spring, and Sheets reached base twice, registering a double and a walk.

Grifol comments on team’s lack of winning attitude

Aware of the aforementioned ugly 4-13 record, Pedro Grifol conveyed urgency for a shift towards a winning mindset for the Sox.
