Happy New Year from Australia
There are still rumors of the Sox adding to the team for next year. Waiting to see how a couple of things I have seen on Twitter play out.
Before New Year’s I will give you an update and my thoughts on the rebuild for the 2020 season
Checking out Twitter this morningI found some amazing news. Jerry actually opened his wallet and signed Yasmani Grandal to a 4 year deal worth 73 Million dollars. Yas played with the Brewers.
The Sox have also purchased the contracts of Zack Burdi, Dane Dunning, Matt Foster, Jimmy Lambert, Bernado Flores Jr, Yermin Mercedes and Black Ruthford. 5 of the 7 players aer ranked in the top 30 prospects of the White Sox according to MLB.
According to Jason Benetti, yas leads the MLB in fwar by catchers since 2015 (24.9). Part of that also is that Yas leads all catchers in home runs since 2015 with 117.
“I Loved their professionalism, preparation and vision towards the future. I want to thank them for allowing me to be a part of this process moving forward.” —Yasmani Grandal
