Lefty competition gets more crowded

New, 2 comments

ChiSox.com's Scott Merkin reports that two in-house candidates have emerged from the White Sox minor league camp to enter into the LOOGY competition, Boone Logan and Heath Phillips.

During a 'B' game on the back fields of the Kino Sports Complex, Logan pitched 1 1/3 perfect innings. That effort was made even more impressive by the fact that he struck out Rob Mackowiak looking and Jim Thome swinging, finishing with three strikeouts in four batters faced.

[...]

Pitching coach Don Cooper said a few Minor Leaguers could be joining the White Sox in Tempe against Anaheim on Wednesday, including Logan and fellow left-hander Heath Phillips, who also struck out three in his two scoreless innings Sunday morning.

I think the Sox are looking at this the wrong way. I mean, haven't all of the Sox hitters looked bad this spring? Shouldn't we send Thome down to A-ball, and Mackowiak to Great Falls?
