The White Sox continued making roster moves to prepare for the regular season by assigning Jesse Crain and Carlos Rodon to minor league camp.

Carlos Rodon pitched well over spring training.  Over six games, including five starts, he walked five, plunked three, struck out 21, and gave up a homer and six runs in 17⅔ innings. That's and ERA of 3.06 and an approximate FIP of 2.08.  His changeup is still a bit of a work in progress, so he's off to Charlotte to work on it.

Jesse Crain didn't appeared in a major league spring training game this year.  He did start off the spring working with the rest of the major league squad including some bullpen sessions.  He was getting ready to appear in a minor league game, but ran into a shoulder setback in his preparation.  For now, he'll be heading to extended spring training to get ready for some tuneup time at Charlotte.

For now, this leaves the White Sox with the final outcome of the second base and bullpen battles to finish off the 25 man roster to start the season.
