Default White Sox outright Anderson, Troncoso, Omogrosso to AAA

Opens 3 spots on the 40-man roster

Opens the roster spots up for Cano, Granderson, and Jose Dariel Abreu. In all seriousness though, I'm glad the Sox are trimming some of the dead weight off the 40 man. Troncoso was hot garbage, Omogrosso is hurt, and Bryan Anderson can't hit. I look at this move as Hahn "laying the drop cloth down" on his White Sox renovation. Looking forward to more moves this offseason.

Also, Leyson Septimo and Hector Gimenez decline assignments and opt for free agency.

Disagree

Can't understand why Axelrod hasn't got his walking papers yet because he is useless.

Teams that are going through rebuilding usually have to roster a handful of useless players to eat innings and at bats

The Sox were the 3rd worst MLB team this past season and probably still have a Bottom 5 farm system; beggars can't be choosers. I mean, if you dump Axelrod, whose the next man in line... Zach Stewart? Probably not even a lateral move.

His uncle is an agent. Look at what Reinsdorf did to Doug Collins.

I agree. I don't think even Axelrod wants to pitch anymore.

I'm sure that will work out well for them.

For the 2nd time, the "BA" era is over for the White Sox.

Hard to believe that those 3 were on the 40 man. I guess that's why we lost 99.
