    Tilson is just going to be one of those guys who never plays, isn't he? He'll be back for a week in August and then mysteriously gone again for the year.

    Bourjos has been a plus WAR player for most of his career, and his MLB production has been better than May's AAA/AA production. May isn't that much younger. Yet, when Bourjos was May's age, he had already posted a 4.8 WAR season in MLB.

    I assumed that they signed him because there was plenty of OF PT available and a hot start could net them a prospect mid-season. If you don't want to keep him that long (even after Tilson's injury) and can't ever flip him for a prospect, then why sign him in the first place?

    Aside from his 2011 season Bourjos hasn't done much to indicate he's more than a bench option. May might suck but at least we can find out and also #TankForBeer

    Sure but, on any given day, the Sox starting lineup will include at least 5 guys who haven't done much to indicate that they're more than a bench option. Given the number of holes and dearth of position prospects, I'm surprised that Hahn didn't really add any sign and flip candidates. FA for position players was a buyer's market.

    Ben Revere would been a great sign and flip. Brett Anderson too but I doubt he turns down the Cubs

    Bourjos is about to be 30 this week. 5 years isn't that much older?

    :cmon:

    I don't care what he did when he was May's age, his last 2 years have been nothing to write home about. Don’t think it's worth being upset that Hahn got free money for a guy he gave a minor league deal to prove himself in camp.

    Who's upset? Minor injuries & transactions are all we have to talk about until another trade happens.

    If Hahn "gave a minor league deal to prove himself in camp," then he proved himself in camp and the move makes no sense. "His last 2 years have been nothing to write home about" could refer to either guy. Especially May, who did nothing in the minors while Bourjos was doing about the same at the MLB level.

    :lol: at giving a shit about "free money." The Sox surely must be well below their max payroll and should be fixing to eat most of the remaining money on whichever spendy veteran they're able to trade.

    John Castro It looks like Jacob May might be the regular CF, I saw him play in the minors and thought he had upside, I like him a lot better than Tilson.

    Some dude put that on the Facebook. I just love how everyone is a scout.

    MLB.com has May as the Sox 26th best prospect and 7th best MiLB OF. Keep in mind that the Sox are still extremely weak wrt position prospects. Scouting report: can't hit, no power, weak arm, mediocre defense, plus speed.

    Tilson is 12th overall and the #2 OF. He's just made of glass, apparently.

    The White Sox placed right-handed pitcher Jake Petricka on the 10-day disabled list (retroactive to April 5) with a strained right lat on Thursday and recalled right-hander Tommy Kahnle from AAA Charlotte.

    Petricka can't stay healthy. Sucks because he seems like a good bullpen arm. Someone we can flip for a good propsect at the deadline.

    Sox sign Ryan Raburn, probably because the Knights needed another OF.

    Pelfrey ate shit in his first start for Charlotte:
    2.2 IP, 3 R, 61 pitches.

    Moncada already has a HR, BB, and SB tho.

    Willy Garcia up again, this time in place of May.

    I'm sure LGarcia will continue to get almost every start in CF.

    WGarcia will back him up and perhaps help form the all-Garcia OF again.

    That's just needlessly vague and dickish. No one cares if they're overly cautious with Rodon and he doesn't pitch until July. Just say that or whatever the truth is. I really have no idea if Rodon is a top 3 starter for them when they're good again, so this stupid footbally answer is just dumb.

    Not sure what is gained from it being a secret if Rodon is out for 2 months. But yeah good thing even MLB managers want to be like John Fox and act like their injury information is some sort of trade secret!!!

    Especially since the Sox are never really this cryptic about injuries.

    Maybe there's a disconnect between the player and team on the diagnosis/treatment. That's when these things tend to get weird.

    Rodon's a 20 game winner.. I'll tell you what. He is going into the Hall the same year as Baby Mags will be.

    Is there evidence behind this? His control isn't quite there yet but I don't recall him ever coming off as a headcase.

    Rodon going to the 60 day. June 1st sounds like a long shot at this point.
