White Sox acquire Rangers prospect for international bonus slot

The White Sox added more talent to their farm system on Saturday as they acquired infielder Yeyson Yrizarri from the Texas Rangers in exchange for international bonus pool money.

The 20-year-old Yrizarri is slashing .258/.285/.399 with seven home runs and 37 RBI across 82 games between Class-A Down East and Class-A Hickory in 2017.

Yrizarri, who was the Rangers No. 17 prospect as ranked by MLB Pipeline, was originally signed by the Texas as an international free agent out of Venezuela in 2013.

Yrizarri has a career .269./.289/.373 slash line with 17 home runs, 148 RBI and 39 stolen bases in 331 minor-league games in the Rangers system.

White Sox call up not-Yoan Moncada, not-Reynaldo Lopez to active roster

White Sox call up not-Yoan Moncada, not-Reynaldo Lopez to active roster

The White Sox had two open roster spots after Thursday's blockbuster trade of Jose Quintana to the Cubs and a demotion of Willy Garcia to Triple-A earlier this week.

And if White Sox fans were waiting to see top prospect Yoan Moncada or one of the organization's talented pitching prospects join the big league club, they'll have to wait a little longer.

The White Sox returned Tyler Saladino and pitcher Miguel Gonzalez from their injury rehab assignments and reinstated both players from the 10-day disabled list. Saladino and Gonzalez will both be with the White Sox as the team begins the second half with a series against the Seattle Mariners on Friday night.

Saladino originally went on the DL on May 26 with back spasms. In six rehab games with the Knights, Saladino batted .350 with a home run and four RBI.

Saladino, 27, has a .200/.302/.273 slash line with four RBI in 30 games with the White Sox in 2017.

Gonzalez made two rehab starts between Charlotte and Birmingham after being placed on the DL on June 15 with A/C joint inflammation in his right shoulder.

Gonzalez, 33, has a 4-8 record with a 5.49 ERA in 13 starts with the White Sox this season.

Rick Hahn inches closer in quest to acquire every MLB Pipeline Top 100 prospect

Rick Hahn inches closer in quest to acquire every MLB Pipeline Top 100 prospect

In his quest to acquire every member of MLB Pipeline's Top 100 prospects, White Sox GM Rick Hahn's plan came one step closer to fruition on Thursday morning.

In a blockbuster trade that nobody in Chicago saw coming, besides two Reddit users, the White Sox gained two Top 75 prospects in their haul from the Cubs for pitcher Jose Quintana. 

Joining the White Sox farm system are MLB's No. 8 prospect in outfielder Eloy Jimenez and No. 63 prospect in starting pitcher Dylan Cease.

The White sox are now tied with the Atlanta Braves for the most (9) MLB Pipeline Top 100 prospects.

Jimenez and Cease join second baseman Yoan Moncada (No. 1), pitcher Michael Kopech (No. 11), outfielder Luis Robert (No. 23), pitcher Lucas Giolito (No. 28), pitcher Reynaldo Lopez (No. 36), pitcher Carson Fulmer (No. 59) and Zack Collins (No. 68) in the stable of White Sox MLB Pipeline Top 100 prospects.

The current list doesn't factor in any of the players the White Sox selected in the 2017 MLB Draft, nor does it include current prospects in the midst of a standout season like pitcher Alec Hansen, Dane Dunning, Jordan Guerrero or Spencer Adams.

The White Sox could add even more Top 100 prospects before the deadline with trade chips like David Robertson, Todd Frazier, Anthony Swarzak, Melky Cabrera, James Shields and Tommy Kahnle.
