White Sox Tenders and Non-Tenders

Yesterday, the White Sox non-tendered three players and tendered contracts to five others.

Yesterday, the White Sox non-tendered Ryan Burr, Caleb Frare, and Yolmer Sanchez. Additionally, Thyago Vieira signed with the Yomiuri Giants, so he will no longer be with the team.

As for players that will remain on the South Side, the White Sox tendered contracts to Alex Colome, Carlos Rodon, Evan Marshall, Leury Garcia, and James McCann, all of which were expected. The projected contracts are as follows:

Sánchez will most likely find a spot as a utility man for another team, but he was the odd man out for the Sox despite winning a Gold Glove this past season. Madrigal will take his slot at second base, and Leury Garcia can handle both infield and outfield utility duties as needed.

These moves correct a previous report that Ryan Burr was designated for assignment, which was incorrect. Does this mean the Sox go after another reliever? I believed Burr could have filled a long-relief role, but the White Sox seem to have other plans.

The 40-man roster now stands at 36. This clears room for acquisitions at the Winter Meetings, so look for the Sox to make some more noise. They have already been linked to Cole Hamels and Zack Wheeler, but why can’t we do both?

In all seriousness, it looks like the White Sox are on a mission this offseason. Maybe they’ll ruin the narrative that they don’t spend money. Hell, they started down that path a couple weeks ago in signing Yasmani Grandal.

UPDATE: Ryan Burr and Caleb Frare have signed minor-league contracts with the White Sox, and they will have non-roster invites to spring training.
