The Mystery of Ramon Troncoso

Often times when watching a White Sox game, Ramon Troncoso enters from the bullpen, and I wonder why he is on the team. Last night’s game was one of those times, as he served up an off-speed pitch up in the zone to Jason Giambi that still hasn’t landed yet, ending the game on a walk-off home run.   Troncoso was close to dominant for the Charlotte Knights before...

June 11: Blue Jays 7, White Sox 5

Heartbreak reared its ugly head at the Cell for the Sox, as the Southsiders found a way to let one slip away. One strike away from a victory, Addison Reed gave Jose Bautista a hittable fastball that he didn’t miss, tying the game by sending it into the Sox bullpen. An inning later, Ramon Troncoso got hit by the Blue Jays, and by the fact that Tyler Flowers is his catcher. The Sox...

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...

We've spent a lot of times discussing the guys on the fence, or those who might make the White Sox major league roster out of spring training. So I figured why not take some time to update you on those who don't really have that chance. I want to be clear, this isn't meant to be a list of everyone with potential who there isn't room for on the 25-man roster...
