Perhaps the reason the White Sox pivoted away from Arizona as their dance partner for Eduardo Escobar at the trade deadline was finding a prettier option, closer to home.On the heels of the announcement that Escobar was shipped yesterday to Milwaukee, the White Sox struck for Cleveland Gold Glove second baseman Csar Hernndez.In return, the White Sox send Double-A starter Konnor Pilkington east. Make no mistake, this is a good get for Cleveland, as Pilkington is by any account the top starter definitely, the top southpaw starter in the White Sox system. That it the White Sox system, thereby reducing the potency of all prospects remaining in the minors by some 25% or so https://www.whitesoxsportsstore.com/herb_score_jersey-117, eases some of the sting. But this reduces the major league-prepatory arms in the upper minors to ... zero? Jimmy Lambert , Jonathan Stiever , and Kade McClure ...In order to fit Hernndez on the roster, Tyler Johnson was released. He was a touted arm who some believed was our top reliever in the system. There is a thought that, injured, Johnson will go unclaimed and, as happened with Ryan Burr release two offseasons ago, Johnson will return to the White Sox to rehab and work back into the system https://www.whitesoxsportsstore.com/michael_kopech_jersey-112.On the other hand, this was Tyler reaction to the news, so, maybe not:And they said the post surgery anesthesia hits hard.
