If you pay attention to Twitter, you have noticed that some teams have already reassigned or optioned players this Spring Training. Today, the Chicago White Sox made their moves, with 13 players reassigned to minor league camp or optioned to the minors.

Heading to the minor league camp

  • Tim Anderson
  • Tyler Danish
  • Jared Mitchell
  • J.D. Martin
  • Andy LaRoche
  • Dan Black

See you in Charlotte

  • Trayce Thompson
  • Kevan Smith
  • Tyler Saladino
  • Adrian Nieto
  • Matt Davidson

Way down in Birmingham

  • Raul Fernandez
  • Michael Ynoa
None of these moves should come as a surprise. Anderson had just a handful of at-bats to make an impact offensively, but his three errors in just 8 chances didn't help his cause to stick with the major-league camp longer. Danish had difficulty striking anyone out. Thompson had the best Spring out of the group, but as Jim mentioned this morning, he could use some more seasoning in Charlotte. Jared Mitchell is Jared Mitchell, and probably something to keep an eye is Davidson's bum shoulder.

The White Sox are down to 51 in the major-league camp.
