Chicago White Sox Place Former Promising Pitcher On Waivers

The Chicago White Sox designated right-hander Brent Honeywell Jr. for assignment, marking a challenging turn in his once-promising baseball career.

Acquired from the San Diego Padres in August, Honeywell struggled during his brief tenure with the Sox, conceding seven runs across just 5.2 innings over four appearances.

Hindered by previous elbow surgeries, the talented pitcher's journey has been riddled with obstacles.

In a corresponding move, infielder Zach Remillard was sent to Triple-A Charlotte, making room for the recall of righty Edgar Navarro and lefty Sammy Peralta from the same minor league team.

Despite maintaining a respectable 4.05 ERA during his time with the Padres, Honeywell's underlying performance metrics raised concerns, culminating in his designation by the White Sox.

This decision now subjects him to the waiver process, offering other teams the opportunity to claim him and potentially provide a fresh start for his career.

Over his two-year career, the former second-round pick holds a 5.08 ERA, 1.48 WHIP, with 49 strikeouts across 56.2 innings and 43 appearances. Photo Credit: Jamie Sabau-USA TODAY Sports
