2021 Chicago White Sox

Yasmani Grandal is the latest to go down. It didn't look good at all. Tony says he was on crutches after the game.

This is insane. I don't know how many injuries to key players the Sox can overcome. The good news is the division is pretty weak this year. Hope for the best on Yaz but expecting the absolute worst.

Grandal out 4-6 weeks with a torn tendon.

Yermin Mercedes, who was recently demoted to Triple A, wrote in an Instagram post tonight that he is "stepping aside" from baseball indefinitely while also apologizing to the team for "not accepting some of their decisions."

It was interesting listening to Cody Decker on WSCR yesterday afternoon talk about this. He and Mercedes have similar stories, putting up consistent, solid numbers at every level of the minors and then never really being given a full shot in the Majors.

Mercedes has to be incredibly frustrated being sent back down, mashing again at AAA, and not getting brought back up despite all the Sox’s injuries. He’s 28 years old. Not like he has many more chances to prove himself. Wonder if he asked for his release to try to hook on with another team and the Sox refused.

Clutch 3-run bomb by Eloy tonight. More impressive was his defense in left, which has never been his strong suit. Made a few nice running grabs and threw out a runner at the plate that.

I think he's back.

Sox made a few moves today.

They acquired 2B Cesar Hernandez from the Indians/Guardians and picked up reliever Ryan Tepera from the Cubs.

Solid pickups that didn’t require the Sox to move any prospects of note.
