The Mailbag: Sox Prospects Ain’t Gettin No Respect!

Welcome to The Chicago Homer’s Mailbag. It runs once a week unless it doesn’t, and in it I answer questions from readers via Twitter or email. The questions can be about any damn thing you please, and there likely isn’t a question I won’t answer. There may be questions I can’t answer, but I’ll try.

If you’d like to submit a question for the next edition of the mailbag it’s pretty simple. Either ask the question on Twitter using the #AskTCH hashtag — as long as you use the hashtag I will see it — or send an email to TCHMailbag@gmail.com.

Carlos Rodon Could Be In Chicago Next Month

The Road to Rodon could pass through Chicago as early as next month.

Rodon has only pitched nine innings in five games for the White Sox in the minors — in the Arizona League and at Winston Salem — since being drafted in June, but like Chris Sale before him, he could be on the fast track to Chicago. MLB.com’s Scott Merkin writes that there’s a “better than average” chance Rodon could be on the roster come September when they expand.

There’s No Reason To Play Dayan Viciedo Every Day

The MLB Trade Deadline came and went without the White Sox making a deal, which means that Dayan Viciedo will likely spend the rest of the 2014 season in Chicago. But just because he’s still here doesn’t mean he needs to keep getting regular playing time.

To be blunt, there’s simply no reason to keep playing him now that you aren’t showcasing him for a possible trade. The White Sox have a better option on their bench names Moises Sierra.

A Possible Home For Adam Dunn

Thursday’s trade deadline came and went without the White Sox making a move. All your favorite White Sox trade bait is still here, from Gordon Beckham and Dayan Viciedo, to John Danks and Adam Dunn. But just because they’re still here now doesn’t mean they’ll still be here come September.

There is still the waiver deadline, in which teams can pass players through waivers, and if they go unclaimed, teams are then free to try and negotiate a trade. While I don’t expect any major changes to the Sox roster over the next month, I do think there’s a relatively decent chance that Adam Dunn could find a new home.
