Locked On White Sox - Daily Podcast On The Chicago White Sox

Mar 21 2023 • 31 mins

Yoán Moncada and Eloy Jiménez are day-to-day as the injury bug has made it's annual visit to the White Sox. Getting out of spring training without any player ailments seems like an impossible mission. The White Sox have been fairly healthy until a few days ago. Moncada collided with a teammate during the USA/Cuba game and has a bruised rib. Then on Monday, Jimenez, left the game early due to a cramp in his right calf. Both players are day-to-day however both players have a history of spring training injuries that have forced them to miss considerable regular season games. If the Sox do not decide to use a closer by committee then Reynaldo Lopez should get serious consideration for the 9th inning role. Either way, Lopez will get plenty of action this season in high leverage situations. New kid on the block, Andrew Benintendi has had a quiet spring but manager Pedro Grifol does not focus a lot of time worrying about him. Benintendi seems to be healthy and happy where his swing is at. His defense and lefty bat should be a key contributors to the 2023 Sox season. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!
