Tim Anderson did what he could with contract extension

Tim Anderson did what he could with contract extension

Shortstop could actually come out ahead in arbitration years, at a cost of delaying free agency two years It’s been a couple years since we’ve seen the front side of an early extension, and it seems even longer than that. In the two years since Adam Eaton signed his five-year deal with two club options, the White Sox have traded him and another one of their best business decisions (Chris Sale) while dangling the other (Jose Quintana) for months. While the Sox struggled in vain to escape the crushing disappointment, fans and media often sought to project a residual dissatisfaction onto...

Chicago White Sox’ philosophy behind signing players to early extensions

“Extensions make it rarer that you will see star players in their 20s on the free-agent market,” wrote Tom Verducci for SI.com in 2014. “Over the past eight years, teams have bought only 50 seasons on the free-agent market that covered players in their 20s or only six prime seasons per year. (includes only key players […] The post Chicago White Sox’ philosophy behind signing players to early extensions appeared first on OutsidePitchMLB.

Moncada, Giolito, Fulmer, Kopech, and Lopez among today’s spring cuts

The White Sox make another round of expected moves. The White Sox continued their weekly moves by optioning top prospects Yoan Moncada, Lucas Giolito, Carson Fulmer, and Reynaldo Lopez to Charlotte. Michael Kopech was also reassigned to minor league camp. While many people will bemoan the facts that these players will not be starting the season in Chicago, we will take a quick look at their service time to see when they might come to Chicago. As a quick refresher, in baseball math, a year of service time is 172 days. If a player is on the 25 man roster or the DL for more than 172...

Fun with White Sox Catch Probability

Fun with White Sox Catch Probability

Ken Harrelson's first rule of baseball A couple weekends ago, MLBAM released version 1.0 of Catch Probability, an advanced metric for outfield defense derived from Statcast data. You can read more about it here (and here and otherwise on Mitchel Lichtman's Twitter, if you really want to dive into the weeds) but, essentially, it divides batted balls hit into the air to the outfield into five buckets. These buckets represent the likelihood of an outfield catch being made based on "opportunity time" and "distance needed". Opportunity time starts when the ball is released by the pitcher....

The future of the White Sox lies beyond early extensions

Great contracts alone couldn’t hoist the club above .500 in the first rebuild Catching up with old friends over the last few days brought A Christmas Carol into spring training. In chronological order, we have: The extension that worked out: Chris Sale, who is making Boston writers aware of 1) his intensity, 2) his unsparing self-criticism, and 3) his fundamental defensive lapses. Sale failed to cover first base in the fourth inning, his last in a 4-3 Red Sox win over the Pirates at JetBlue Park. “That’s stupid,” said Sale, who punched himself on the head with the ball afterward....

White Sox, Tim Anderson talking multi-year deal

According to MLB.com's Scott Merkin, the White Sox are discussing a long-term extension with shortstop Tim Anderson. The White Sox are "no commenting" the report and no announcement is expected today. Anderson has been out of the lineup the past three days with a "personal matter". Serious negotiations regarding a multi-year deal that would presumably buy out at least some arbitration years, if not free agent years, would certainly rise to the level of a personal matter that might distract him from relatively meaningless spring training games. The 23-year-old made his debut with the White...
