KANSAS CITY, Mo. – USC baseball alumnus Bernardo Flores Jr. made his MLB debut for the Chicago White Sox last night, becoming the 116th Trojan to play in the Major Leagues.

Flores entered in relief for the White Sox in the eighth inning, tossing one frame in an 11-6 victory over the Kansas City Royals. The southpaw was drafted by Chicago in 2016 and added to the club’s 40-man roster last year, before receiving his first call-up last month and then making his MLB debut on Thursday.

Flores progressed steadily through the White Sox system, reaching Hi-A in 2017 and AA the following season. In four minor league seasons, Flores owns a 3.18 ERA, with 342 strikeouts and 92 walks.

During his collegiate career, Flores tossed 91.1 innings in three seasons, serving mainly as a reliever, but also making eight starts for the Trojans. He had his best season in 2015, tossing a career high 44.2 innings while posting a 3-1 record, one save and a 3.83 ERA. For his career, Flores struck out 85 batters and walked 35.

He was drafted in the seventh round of the 2016 draft by the White Sox as one of 12 Trojans selected that year. He joins fellow 2016 draftee Brooks Kriske as the second USC alum to make their MLB debut this season after Kriske broke through with the Yankees in July.

Rosenthal bounced back with the Kansas City Royals, prior to a midseason trade to San Diego. The 30-year-old threw 23 2⁄3 innings with a 1.90 ERA. The 6´2´´, 235 pound righthander averaged nearly 15 K/9 while only walking just more than three batters per nine. He posted a 2.22 FIP, as well. Rosenthal missed the 2018 season after Tommy John surgery, and he then proceeded to struggle in 2019.

Treinen threw just more than 25 innings in 2020, but his strikeout rate was down significantly. The 6´5´´, 225 pound righty averaged 7.71 K/9 and only 2.81 BB/9. The 32-year-old sinkerballer posted a 3.86 ERA with a 3.15 FIP. The member of the World Series champion Dodgers will likely be looking for his fourth team this winter.

Brad Hand and Archie Bradley are two more names that joined the free agent reliever class. Hand, a 6´3´´, 220 pound southpaw was available to the league on outright waivers from Cleveland earlier this offseason and nobody claimed Hand for mere money. The 30-year-old reliever pitched in 23 games last year encompassing 22 innings. The lefty averaged 11.86 K/9 with 1.64 BB/9 and compiled 1.1 fWAR with a 2.05 ERA and 1.37 FIP.

The 28-year-old Bradley was traded from the Diamondbacks to Cincinnati at the deadline and he pitched 18 1⁄3 innings total, with a 2.93 ERA and 2.59 FIP. The 6´4´´, 225-pounder didn’t strike out as many hitters in 2020, averaging ony 8.84 K/9 last year after 10.93 K/9 in 2019, but he did increase the walk rate.

Overall, this market has been slow-moving so far, but it’s ripe with talent that can help teams.

Call to the Pen
The White Sox have done a pretty solid job overall of cobbling together bullpen assets and displaying a representative level group of arms. La Russa is often credited with inventing the modern bullpen. He likes using a designated closer, setup men from the right and left sides, and having the rest fall in line. New rules could change the way he operates, but bullpen management should be a strength in the new-look dugout.

With the eighth-best bullpen in the sport last year, this isn’t an area of weakness for the White Sox — but strengthening a strength is likely necessary in a wide-open American League. The majority of their above-average group will return in 2021. Aaron Bummer, a 27-year-old southpaw, ran into some injury issues last year after signing a contract extension but he still managed to average 13.5 K/9 with a 0.96 ERA. In 2019, Bummer threw 67 2⁄3 innings and posted a 2.13 ERA.

Evan Marshall just signed a $2 million deal to remain with the club and the 30-year-old has been stellar. The right-handed changeup specialist posted a 2.04 FIP and 2.38 ERA over 22 2⁄3 innings. Marshall struck out almost 12 hitters per nine innings and walked just 2.78.

In addition to those stable veterans, some young hurlers burst onto the scene in 2020 as well.

Codi Heuer, 24, posted a 1.52 ERA in 23 2⁄3 innings. The 6´5´´, 195-pounder averaged 9.5 K/9 with a 2.77 FIP. Matt Foster is a 25-year-old righty who displayed a plus changeup with increased fastball velocity. Over 28 2⁄3 innings, the former 20th-rounder averaged 9.73 K/9 with a 2.20 ERA and 2.88 FIP. Garrett Crochet’s role is yet to be defined, but he could be an option in the 2021 bullpen before too long as well.

Lefty Jace Fry and rubber-armed righty Jimmy Cordero are still on the roster as well. The 27-year-old Fry posted a 1.83 FIP vs lefties and averaged more than 12 K/9 against righthanders. Cordero pitched in seemingly every game for the 2020 club and he dealt with some overuse. He would strand lots of runners, and his FIP (3.87) was much better than an ERA that came in higher than six.

One look at the 40-man roster indicates a plethora of younger options, as well. Zack Burdi’s stuff looked all the way back while harboring similar command issues to the past. Bernardo Flores Jr. is a starter, but could be used in a relief role. Jimmy Lambert looked solid in a brief stint, and he’s a bullpen candidate if he gets healthy once again. Tyler Johnson was added to the 40-man roster this offseason, Emilio Vargas was acquired via waivers and José Ruiz is hanging by a thread.

The argument can be made that the White Sox have enough in the current bullpen to compete in the American League. Bummer, Heuer and others could handle the ninth inning. Deadline trades are common for contenders, and 2021 likely won’t be any different. Should the White Sox spend a considerable piece of their arbitrarily set budget on a closer? It’s a valid question.

Fans and observers in many cases would prefer that money be spent on another starting pitcher, or a better option in right field or designated hitter. The club hasn’t shown a willingness or propensity to play at the very top of the free agent market in the majority of cases. They did it last year with catcher Yasmani Grandal — a rarity. But they’ve done it in the past with relief pitching, multiple times.

All indications are that they’d be content doing it with Hendriks. He’s the top target, and while it shouldn’t be beyond criticism, at least it’s the right player for the closer role. The White Sox feel comfortable when the financial ceiling is lower, and the bidding for the 31-year-old shouldn’t get too uncomfortable.

Hendriks would make an already-great White Sox bullpen one of the very best in the sport. La Russa likes shortening games, and having the Aussie fireballer at the back end does just that. The conjecture over the appropriate use of resources will and should continue, but nobody can deny that the club would be setting themselves up to be one of the favorites in the American League by adding Hendriks. And that’s kind of the point of this whole operation.

Flores is the first USC alum to pitch for the White Sox since the late Tom Seaver, who passed away earlier this week.

USC has produced 116 major leaguers over the years — more than any other NCAA program in the nation. Trojan alums boast 67 All-Star appearances, 29 World Series appearances, nine Cy Young awards, three Hall of Fame inductions, three Rookie of the Year Awards, one American League MVP and one World Series MVP.

Welcome to the Show, Bernardo!

Garrett Crochet is part of the 2021 plans for the Chicago White Sox.
When the 2020 season ended for Garrett Crochet and the Chicago White Sox, we were forced to fear the worst. He left game three of their series with the Oakland Athletics with an injury that had us all fearing he was going to need Tommy John surgery.

Well, when Rick Hahn addressed the media after the season, he announced that Crochet would not need the surgery and would be ready to go by Spring Training. It was a sigh of relief because losing him for all of 2021 would have been a tough pill to swallow.

White Sox Garrett Crochet Jersey

Crochet was drafted in the 2020 MLB Draft. It is very rare for a player to make his MLB debut during the season he was drafted but those sorts of things happened during the COVID-19 season. He was brilliant but when the season ended you had to wonder if the White Sox would have him down in the Minor Leagues when they get their seasons back.

It sounds like he will be given the chance to make the MLB team for the 2021 season. New White Sox pitching coach, Ethan Katz, went on the White Sox Talk Podcast to discuss all things involved with White Sox pitching. Of course, the topic of Garrett Crochet came up and Katz had some interesting things to say.

Womens Garrett Crochet Jersey

Katz told Chuck Garfien that “He is going to be a big part of what we do next year”. That really sounds like Katz believes that Crochet will be used with the big club starting on Opening Day. You have to think that he has big-time input and inside information into what the organization believes as well. Katz is a very smart pitching mind and has been successful with helping out some of the best young pitchers in the game.

HOT: The White Sox made the right catching decision
Crochet has all of the talents in the world. He can throw the ball north of 100 miles per hour. He played in five games in 2020 and he was dominant in that short sample size. We saw what happened with Giolito when Katz started helping him in the 2018-19 offseason. It makes you wonder what he might be able to do with a kid like Garrett Crochet. We don’t know if it will be as a reliever or a starter in 2021 but Katz definitely sees him as someone who will be with the big club right away.

If you’re unsure of what this is, read our Top Prospect Vote primer.

Matthew Thompson absolutely cruised to a win as our No. 10 prospect, taking 49% (120 of 243 votes). Last year, Thompson finished 12th in our poll.

In the 2020 poll, Blake Rutherford finished as our No. 10 prospect in the vote.

Thompson’s easy win appears to be setting up an incredible race for the No. 11 prospect, as four very different players — Yermín Mercedes, Benyamin Bailey, Blake Rutherford and Zack Burdi — are fighting to move on.

What grade does Jimmy Cordero deserve for his busy 2020 season?
Jimmy Cordero began his career with the Washington Nationals in 2018. He made his way over to the Toronto Blue Jays in 2019 but was traded to the Chicago White Sox in the same season. He has now played with the White Sox longer than any other team in only two years but he is starting to become well known.

Jimmy Cordero Jersey

He hasn’t been as good as he would have liked but a lot of it doesn’t feel like his fault. Rick Renteria overused him so bad in 2020 and it looked like it affected his numbers.

The Chicago White Sox, along with all of Major League Baseball, were forced to play a short 60-game season because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Out of those 60 games, Renteria used Cordero in 30 of them. It was a remarkable amount of games to use one reliever. It makes even less sense when you consider his numbers and some of the other names in the White Sox bullpen.

White Sox Jimmy Cordero Jersey

His numbers were probably skewed the wrong way because of his usage but at the end of the day, his 6.08 ERA and 1.575 WHIP are awful numbers. He had a -0.9 WAR but the team still decided to give him 26.2 innings over 30 games. They were a playoff team and one of the best teams in the American League so they get somewhat of a pass but they can’t be doing that next season.

CHICAGO — Right-handed reliever Evan Marshall and the White Sox avoided arbitration by agreeing on a one-year, $2 million contract.

The White Sox announced the deal on Thursday, one day after agreeing on a one-year, $1.375 million deal with outfielder Adam Engel to also avoid arbitration.

Womens Jimmy Cordero Jersey

Marshall, 30, finished 2-1 with a 2.38 ERA in the abbreviated 2020 season during the White Sox first playoff appearance since 2008 and their first winning season since 2012. Marshall recorded eight holds, 30 strikeouts in 22 2/3 innings and a 1.06 WHIP over 23 relief appearances, marking his second season with the White Sox. He averaged a career-best 11.91 strikeouts per nine innings and limited opponents to a .198 batting average (17-for-86), including a .119 mark (5-for-42) vs. left-handers.

Originally signed by the White Sox as a free agent on Oct. 30, 2018, Marshall has a 6-3 record with a 2.45 ERA over 73 1/3 innings and 78 appearances over his last two seasons. Marshall was one of nine White Sox pitchers who took the mound in the deciding third game of the American League Wild Card Series loss to the A’s, hurling two innings and throwing a season-high 45 pitches.

Staff ace Lucas Giolito and fellow right-handed pitcher Reynaldo López represent the only two arbitration-eligible players remaining on the White Sox. Marshall will play an important role once again in a bullpen featuring Aaron Bummer, Garrett Crochet, Codi Heuer, Matt Foster, Jace Fry, Jimmy Cordero and an expected veteran addition or two, potentially at closer.

2020 grade: C-
Cordero’s numbers are bad that he deserves a D for this season but he gets bumped up to a C- because of his usage. He probably could be an effective reliever if he is used the right way over the course of a full season.

Youth Jimmy Cordero Jersey

2021 outlook:
The Chicago White Sox are certainly going to have him back next year so they need to figure out a plan for him. There is no way that he needs to be playing in half of the games under any circumstances. There are some great arms in this bullpen around him and they might not even be done adding.

HOT: James McCann says goodbye to the Chicago White Sox online
2021 will be a big year for Cordero because he should (hopefully) be given a humane amount of innings and be put in a better position to succeed. If he does that and still has the WAR and ERA that he had in 2020 they might cut ties with him. Hopefully, it works out for him because that would also be great for the team.
