Who is the 31st-most important member of the White Sox major-league roster?

MLB: Chicago White Sox at Oakland Athletics
Where’s No. 31? There’s a good chance one of the guys in this bullpen gets the call as our next winner.

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

Jace Fry, with 45% (14 of 31 votes) is the 29th-most important member of the White Sox roster. Chris Volstad, with 26% (eight of 31 votes), is the 30th-most important member of the White Sox roster.

Two peel off, one player, José Rondón, jumps in.
