White Sox Add Five Prospects to 40-Man Roster Ahead of Rule 5 Draft
The White Sox added five prospects to their 40-man roster. This will protect those players from being Rule 5 Draft selections. The Rule 5 Draft is Dec. 14.
The Chicago White Sox filled their 40-man roster by adding five more prospects to it. This means all five players won’t be eligible to be selected as a Rule 5 Draft pick. The Rule 5 Draft is on Dec. 14 during the Winter Meetings. Teams had until 7 PM CST on Monday to add players to their rosters.
In a corresponding move, the organization outrighted Tyler Danish and Chris Beck to Triple-A Charlotte. That leaves the White Sox 40-man roster at 39.

Beck pitched out of the bullpen this season to the tune of 64 2/3 innings. However, he struggled posting a 6.40 ERA. Danish on the other hand was once thought of as a top prospect in the White Sox system. However, he struggled when he got to the higher levels of the minors. He threw in just 6 2/3 innings in the majors the past two seasons.
