White Sox Opening Day Trade Block

The Chicago White Sox have made the following players available leading up to Opening Day 2019....

 

/\ 2B/SS Juan Cintron -- elite defensive middle infielder.  25 year old switch hitter on a league minimum salary with 2 option years remaining.  

 

/\ CF Jared Mitchell -- has had a 308/379/519 Spring.  Can play all three OF positions.  On a minor league deal so could be stashed at AAA before Opening Day on Thursday.  Will be owed $3.2m if retained at the Major League level.  Also has good speed and base running skills.  Solid role player or can start at any OF position as needed.

 

/\ LH Michael Blake -- Left-handed specialist reliever.  28 years old on a league minimum salary.  We have a couple other left handed relievers in our bullpen this year so Blake is expendable.  Has a 91% ground ball rate this Spring.

 

/\ SP Hudson Boyd -- We acquired Boyd from CIN this offseason.  He's a 26 year old SP on a league minimum salary who had a 2.48 ERA in 13 starts for CIN last season and a 1.8 WAR in less than half a season for a full starter.  But we've decided Jonathan Ware is ready to start this season and don't have room for Boyd.
