White Sox List 21 Non-Roster Invitees to Spring Training

The White Sox have announced their non-roster invitees to their 2014 Spring Training. This year there will be 21 of 'em. Photo credit: Paul Sancya, AP Photo Familiar big league names on the list include Brian Omogrosso, Hector Gimenez, David Purcey, Dylan Axelrod, and Blake Tekotte. I'd say Purcey has the best shot from these guys to break camp with the big...

White Sox Bring Back our Buddy Brian Omogrosso

The minor move train rolls on, as the White Sox have brought back 29 year-old righty reliever Brian Omogrosso on a one-year minor league contract. He rejoins the club after missing most of 2013 with a tricep injury. We at GSB! are very pleased to see this news. Brian is a good, funny dude that was kind enough to talk to us awhile back. As far as 2014 goes, it's...

White Sox' Brian Omogrosso recovering from triceps strain, team still interested

For Chicago White Sox pitcher Brian Omogrosso, 2013 was a season to forget. Omogrosso spent the second half of it on the disabled list with strained right triceps, hitting the DL on June 29 and remaining there until the season ended. He appears on the mend, and according to Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish, the White Sox have a some interest in re-signing the right-hander, who...

Phegley & Tekotte Get Their Chance in Wake of Demotions

Finally, with the 2013 White Sox hitting new lows seemingly every day, we're seeing the first moves of the transition into the fire sale be made. Recently, the team announced they'd seen enough of Brian Omogrosso, as they sent him down for highly-touted prospect Simon Castro. And on Wednesday, news broke that Jesse Crain and Paul Konerko were headed to the...

With Omogrosso Out, Simon Castro Gets His 1st Shot

During spring training, one of the most attractive prospects on the White Sox was starter Simon Castro. And now, after another failed stint in the bullpen from Brian Omogrosso, Castro is getting his first chance to make an impression with the MLB team. Last season, Omogrosso pitched in 17 games for the Sox and had a very good 2.57 ERA. And after he dominated this past...

Heath Optioned to AAA, Omogrosso Recalled

In what’s surely to be the most groundbreaking move in Major League Baseball this season, the White Sox optioned Deunte Heath to AAA Charlotte after yesterday’s loss in Minnesota, and Brian Omogrosso was recalled to take his place in the bullpen. Ok, I’m being sarcastic. This is pretty insignificant when it comes to roster moves, as we are talking about a team basically...

Heath & Troncoso to Replace Peavy & Omogrosso

On Wednesday afternoon, we learned that Jake Peavy would be out for six weeks with a non-displaced rib fracture. So we knew we were going to get one roster move on Thursday ... most of us just didn't expect two. With Hector Santiago stepping in to replace Peavy in the rotation, we didn't need to call up a starter like Jason Berken, although that would still be a possibility...

What To Do With the Erratic White Sox Bullpen

All White Sox fans are well aware that Addison Reed and Jesse Crain have been nothing short of phenomenal out of the team's bullpen this season. But outside of them, the unit has not been nearly as strong as we expected it to be. With youngsters that burst onto the scene like Reed, Nate Jones, Donnie Veal, Hector Santiago, and Brian Omogrosso in 2012, expectations...

May 5: Royals 6, White Sox 5

Another day, another frustrating, stinging loss to the Kansas City Royals. However, the White Sox found a new way to make us all pull our hair out: blow a lead in the ninth inning. Addison Reed blew his first save of the season, and then Brian Omogrosso coughed up the lead in the tenth. Let’s take a look at what to take away from this one ... DEFENSIVE CIRCUS CONTINUES...

Donnie Veal Optioned, Our Friend Omogrosso Promoted

At this point, a roster move breaking out of nowhere is nothing new for us Sox fans in 2013. But Wednesday afternoon, an unexpected demotion took place as Donnie Veal (pictured below, H/T AP) was sent to AAA Charlotte. Last year, Donnie Veal was dominant out of the White Sox' pen. He appeared in 24 games, pitching 13 total innings and bolstering a staggering 1.38 ERA...

Duente Heath Called Up in Wake of Beckham Injury

White Sox manager Robin Ventura certainly cut the breaks and pulled a wild card on us all by calling up 27 year-old relief pitcher Duente Heath instead of others like Brian Omogrosso, Brent Morel, or Jordan Danks. First of all, I should apologize to all of you non "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" fans who didn't understand the 'wild card' reference...

Indians win 6-4, knock White Sox out of first place

Baseball is a really weird sport. Well, maybe not weird so much as it has a really grueling, long season with streaks, peaks and unfortunately for the Indians, collapses. What in the world am I talking about? I’m filling in for TD today on the recap, so I’ll just lean on him anyway. These were some of his comments on Twitter last night. I cannot believe this White Sox team has...
