The White Sox have set their opening roster for Opening Day originally published on NBC Sports Chicago
The White Sox have officially set their opening roster. Due to an abbreviated spring training, MLB decided to allow teams to carry 28 players on the roster through May 1, instead of the typical 26 players. The Sox decided to split that with 14 position players and 14 pitchers.
There are several new names on the South Side this season, like AJ Pollock, Josh Harrison and Kendall Graveman. There was a surprise omission, as Yoan Moncada was sent to 10-Day IL to start the season. Moncada was scratched from the team’s final spring training game with a side injury, but at the time it was believed that this would not affect his availability for the start of the season.
