CHICAGO, IL – SEPTEMBER 28: Rob Brantly /

Rob Brantly, C

2017 Season: 14 games, 2 HR, 5 RBI, .290

The White Sox signed Rob Brantly to a minor-league contract in June. He appeared in just 14 games for them and hit .290 while hitting two home runs and driving in five RBIs. The catcher will probably be most remembered for hitting a home run in the last game of the season against the Cleveland Indians.

The 27-year-old hasn’t really stuck in the majors. He debuted with the Reds in 2012 but prior to this season last played in the big leagues in 2015. Coincidentally that was also for the White Sox. And that was also for 14 games. Brantly is a career .230 hitter and has seven home runs and 37 RBIs for his career.

The team purchased his contract from Triple-A Charlotte when Nicky Delmonico went to the disabled list. They probably opted to bring him up because he is a left-handed hitter and they didn’t have much in the way of lefties.

Brantly has opted to become a free agent.
