The Chicago White Sox have made some roster moves that should make fans excited for what they might bring back to the lineup.
The Chicago White Sox have made some notable roster moves following their series with the New York Mets. It’s been tough treading for the team since play resumed following the All-Star break. They needed a bit of a spark and you could say they are getting that.
The big addition is reinstating Tim Anderson from the injured list. Tim has missed some time due to injury and has been seriously missed over his time off. He is batting .317 to complete his slash line of .317/.342/.491. He has 11 home runs and 37 RBIs as well as those numbers. He is having an incredible season for the White Sox and losing him for all that time really hurt.
He is in the starting lineup tonight vs the Mets and is batting seventh. The White Sox also need some of what he brings as far as attitude. He has taken over as one of the leaders of this team and the things he brings that don’t show up on the score sheet have also been greatly missed. He is obsessed with winning and it has shown to rub off on some of the other guys in the lineup and on the team. Every team in baseball needs an emotional leader that also produces, and Tim Anderson is that guy.
Room was made for Tim Anderson when the White Sox sent Dylan Covey to AAA following the loss on Sunday. They also called up RHP Carson Fulmer from Triple-A Charlotte and optioned Ryan Cordell to Charlotte. Fulmer will be the fifth starter for this team in place of Covey and Anderson will replace Cordell as a position player.
Hopefully, these are some moves that help get the White Sox back on track. The important thing is that the right players continue to do well, and Anderson is one of those players that will be with the White Sox for the long haul so it is good to have him back.
