With MLB rosters shrinking from 28 to 26 players, the Chicago White Sox made a pair of moves to comply. On Monday morning, the club optioned infielder Danny Mendick and left-handed pitcher Anderson Severino to Triple-A Charlotte.
In 10 games this season, Danny Mendick is slashing .250/.318/.500 with one home run and three RBIs. The 28-year-old last appeared in a game for the Chicago White Sox on April 27.
Typically the “last option” out of the bullpen, Anderson Severino has appeared in just six games for the White Sox this season. He owns a 6.14 ERA, 3.09 FIP, 1.500 WHIP, and 11.0 K/9 rate across 7.1 innings. If Severino can harness his command at the Triple-A level, he could be in line for a call-up later in the season when inevitable bullpen struggles and/or injuries occur.
