After optioning Charlie Tilson to AAA Charlotte yesterday, the White Sox made their corresponding move this afternoon.
As Tony Marchese speculated in his blog about possible call-ups last night, Adam Engel is indeed rejoining the big league club for this weekend’s series in Tampa Bay. He will be in the lineup immediately, batting ninth and playing center field against the Rays tonight.
Engel will undoubtedly be a defensive upgrade over Tilson in the outfield. While his numbers improved at the plate in Charlotte, his MLB offensive track record leaves much to be desired. He will have another opportunity to get his cuts in at the highest level while Luis Robert continues to “check the boxes” at AAA Charlotte.
