Congratulations, Daniel Palka, you are the 44th most essential White Sox player!

Palka earned 24% (nine of 37 votes). Earlier this season, Palka was named the 25th most important member of the White Sox roster, earning 28% of the 25th vote.

If there’s a player you feel has been overlooked so far in voting, write him in by making a comment below.

Juan Minaya and Chris Volstad were shut out of this past vote, so each player is dropped from the ballot and are effectively eliminated from this 50-round vote.

With Palka advancing, the last eligible member of the roster, Danny Farquhar, is added to the ballot. With Minaya and Volstad dropping off, prospects Kade McClure and Tyler Johnson are added.
