The White Sox announced this morning that Nomar Mazara has joined the team for their upcoming series in Milwaukee against the Brewers. Yermin Mercedes rejoins the taxi squad in Schaumburg. In turn, Jimmy Lambert moves to the 45-day injured list, ending his 2020 season.
This is tough news for Jimmy Lambert after undergoing Tommy John Surgery last season. Mazara is a welcome addition, as the White Sox have been filling in the gaps with Nicky Delmonico and Adam Engel through the first week-plus of the season. Although Mazara will more than likely platoon with Adam Engel in right field and mainly bat against right-handed pitchers, this gives the White Sox the opportunity to put their best foot forward at their weakest position.
