Dylan Cease was dealing on Thursday night for the Chicago White Sox.
The Chicago White Sox played a big inter-squad game on Thursday. It was big because the plan was to play eight innings and they ended up playing nine. They had a lot of big storylines in this game much like the rest of the storylines in the games prior. This team is so much fun to watch and it is time for people to start paying attention if you aren’t already.
Dylan Cease was DEALING
The Chicago White Sox would be so happy to see Dylan Cease become a superstar. They got him with Eloy Jimenez in a deal with the Chicago Cubs. Of course, the White Sox would love to say they fleeced the Cubs in trade and Cease being a star would complete that. He looked amazing in this Thursday night scrimmage.
Yes, it was just a scrimmage, but he looked as good as he ever was. There hasn’t been a time where he looked better in a White Sox uniform. His breaking pitches were fantastic and his fastballs had confusing movement on them. If Dylan Cease pitches this well during games that count, they are going to be so set with their starting rotation.
Edwin Encarnacion is going to hit a BILLION home runs
Edwin Encarnacion was sort of the final cherry on top of a great offseason for the White Sox. He is going to be the best DH this team has had in a long time and he gave fans a taste of it on Thursday night. He hit two home runs in the game and threw up the parrot celebration while doing it. Hopefully, he is able to hit lots of home runs once the games start going for real.
Yasmani Grandal plays for our team
When you think about Edwin Encarnacion as the cherry on top of a great offseason for the White Sox, think of Yasmani Grandal as the exact opposite. He was the first domino to fall in the offseason for the White Sox and he looks like he is totally worth it. From an offensive and defensive perspective, he is one of the best catchers in the world.
He hit a home run in this game which was good to see. He is one of the big reasons that people see this team as one that is incredibly improved so he does need to have a good year for them to improve their winning percentage.
Yoan Moncada is back
The Chicago White Sox didn’t announce why Yoan Moncada was out but with the results of their COVID-19 tests, it was assumed that he was one of them. He confirmed that rumor last night as he returned to the field for the first time this summer. He didn’t play in the game but hopes to be in the lineup by Opening Day one week from today. He is one of, if not the best player on this team so hopefully, he is.
The White Sox are going to be right back at it on Friday afternoon at one o’clock. This team continues to grind out the practice games and they are starting to look like that exciting team we saw developing back in Spring Training. Keep watching and supporting this team because there is no doubt that they are going to be fun to watch.
