As things wind down in the White Sox roster vote, we’re speeding things along a bit by naming two winners from the last vote.

Luis Avilán, with 42% (22 of 53 votes), is the 24th-most important member of the White Sox roster. Daniel Palka, with 28% (15 of 53 votes), is the 25th-most important member of the White Sox roster.

With no new additions to the ballot, the forthcoming could be the final roster vote of 2018.
