Chicago White Sox Sign Left-Handed Starting Pitcher

Joining the Chicago White Sox.

The White Sox have signed left-handed pitcher Ricardo Sanchez to a minor-league contract.
The 25-year-old made his major-league debut with the St. Louis Cardinals during the pandemic-shortened 2020 season, where he made three relief appearances, and allowed four earned runs over 5.1 innings of work.

Since then, Sanchez has spent time in the minor leagues, posting a 4.95 ERA and 1.50 WHIP in 116.1 innings and 26 starts between the Triple-A affiliates of the Philadelphia Phillies and Detroit Tigers in 2022.

For his minor-league career, the southpaw holds a 4.60 ERA, 1.47 WHIP, with 573 strikeouts over 633.2 innings and 137 appearances (132 starts).

The signing adds organizational depth to the White Sox's starting pitching options for the 2023 season.

He'll likely spend the majority of the season with Triple-A Charlotte, although he may get called up if there is an injury to a member of the White Sox' rotation. Photo Credit: Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports
