    Kevan Smith to the DL, Hector Sanchez called up from AAA.

    Jesus, what a shitty way to (fail to) make your MLB debut.

    Good news for him is that he made $500k for flying to Toronto and stretching with the team. Not the worst way to earn half a mil

    I mean, that's league minimum. He got called up so pretty sure that's when that kicks in. :shrug:

    It's league minimum for a season. He gets a day's pay, so 500,000/162 = $3086

    You really think every call up gets a half a million dollars? That'd throw team's payrolls so out of wack.

    Hmm, yeah - assumed yearly league miminum salary (in full?) kicked in once you made it to the show, whether it was just a quick call up or not. Maybe that's just something I thought forever and never really investigated. Fuck it.

    Maybe that's why he pitched last night.

    http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2016/04/28/white-sox-place-closer-david-robertson-on-bereavement-list/

    The White Sox have placed closer David Robertson on the bereavement list, they announced prior to Thursday evening’s contest at the Baltimore Orioles. Under league rules, Robertson will remain on the list for at least three days and up to seven.

    Robertson is 8-of-9 in save chances this season and has a 0.87 ERA in 10 1.3 innings, in which he’s struck out 13 and held opponents to a .152 batting average.

    In a corresponding move, Chicago called up 23-year-old infielder Carlos Sanchez from Triple-A Charlotte. He’s hitting .309 with three homers and nine RBIs in 20 games[​IMG] at Triple-A this year.

    That has to be why he pitched in a non-save situation last night. Saves using someone else from the 'pen and takes advantage of D-Ro having a few days off.

    Also Turner and Volstad should be in the mix. I'd rather try Johnson at first though.

    Will they take a look?

    The answer is yes, absolutely, they will have scouts there. :shrug:

    This isn't like a one or two year aberration from Lincecum. This is a dude who's been consistently awful since 2011 with only small hints of being "almost average" last season in only 15 games. The dude is toast. By all means, do your due diligence and have a scout look at him but don't expect any decent production out of the guy. He's getting chances based on reputation alone at this point.

    They were saying he was throwing in the 70's by the fifth inning the other day. Whoosh.

    Maybe he'd be decent as a one inning guy out of the pen, but he sure doesn't look like a SP anymore.

    Yeah I'm surprised he's still trying to make it a go as a starter. Could make a nice additional 5-6 year career for himself if he can just hit the low 90's for one inning.

    Carroll called up, at least until they need a 5th starter.

    Avila started his rehab assignment at Charlotte.

    Wonder what's gonna happen there with Navarro contributing to the offense and pitchers praising him for his pitch calling since Avila was gone. Might have injured himself out of a gig.

    #WhiteSox acquire RHP Anthony Ranaudo from Texas in for RHP Matt Ball and have optioned right-hander Scott Carroll to Class AAA Charlotte.

    Looks like Ranaudo was optioned as well. Expect Webb to be activated to take Carroll's spot tomorrow or Saturday.
