San Diego gets Machado Tony Perez Jersey , Philly signs Harper, Angels re-up Trout, Boston snags Sale ... and the South Siders secure Alcides Escobar"It’s your second-favorite ... or second-most frequent ... or whatevermost game recapper here to try to polish today’s new South Side turd.Ah hell, it’s late, and the subhed above says it well enough: While other, big boy-pants franchises sign or extend real major leaguers, the White Sox hone in on putrid and pointless AAAA talent.Exhibit mfing A of this spring: Alcides Escobar.Bless you, Alcides http://www.redsfanproshop.com/authentic-cliff-pennington-jersey , for bringing your Venezuelan shortstop lineage to the one franchise that can best appreciate it. For practical purposes, while I’m sure you are a swell guy, as Fancy H. Yancy (who let me say is bringing the hell out of it in the stretch run to Opening Day) sort of hilariously shaded, three of your top 10 B-R comps are the offensively-challenged Ozzie Guil n, Luis Aparicio and Omar Vizquel.Besides, there’s an aesthetically-displeasing trend developing here, with the White Sox snagging rejects from the Baltimore Orioles organization. Ten days ago it was Josh Osich, today, Escobar.So, while 29 other teams struggle to find the latest market inefficiency (apparently, it’s not competing with one another to pay top wage to top tier talent on the open market http://www.whitesoxfanproshop.com/authentic-paul-konerko-jersey , and completely avoiding any MLB wage for the middle class of players), the White Sox have found their new one: Collect Oriole droppings. Did I say something yesterday about sun peeking through the clouds?Oh well, this is just some weird, b.s., squeeze-Danny-Mendick-or-Jos茅-Rond贸n’s-innings-at- Charlotte move, anyway. No harm. Less than zero upside. Gave me a chance to rant and mock to bulk of a gamethread, in lieu of, like, an actual Eloy Jim茅nez extension signing press conference.Oh, and to make room for Escobar (who is not reporting to major league camp but directly to Charlotte), not in any real way but perhaps in a pretend fashion like the team needed to open up a locker or lunchroom ration Bo Jackson Jersey , the White Sox released Brandon Guyer. You know, a guy who almost has hope of being a major league hitter.OK, brohans, game’s on NBC Sports Chicago, at 3:10 p.m. CT. The lineups: A look at what’s happening around the majors today:THE SHO GOES ONShohei Ohtani doesn’t need two good elbows to help the Angels. Doctors this week recommended the two-way rookie sensation have Tommy John surgery on his right pitching elbow, but Ohtani has been crushing it at the plate, hitting four homers in his past three games. Ohtani has 19 home runs and leads all rookies with a .579 slugging percentage, and he says he’ll keep hitting through the end of the season before deciding whether to have surgery that would keep him off the mound until 2020. The Angels will face White Sox veteran James Shields.NEW BREWGio Gonzalez is set to make his first start with the Brewers against the Giants. The left-hander was acquired from the Nationals a week ago. He had lost three of his final four starts with Washington while posting an 8.71 ERA, but Milwaukee is hoping he can help the team’s postseason push.BUCK UPClay Buchholz’s resurgent season keeps getting better, a trend Arizona hopes he extends against Atlanta. The 34-year-old right-hander is 7-2 with a 2.05 ERA, including 2-0 with an 0.64 ERA in his past four starts. The Diamondbacks are trying to close ground on the Rockies and Dodgers in the NL West Luis Aparicio Jersey , a tough task with the NL East-leading Braves in town. Atlanta is set to pitch right-hander Julio Teheran (9-7, 4.05).RIGHT DECISIONMets third baseman David Wright is scheduled to participate in a simulated game at Citi Field, his next step as he tries to make a major league comeback from neck, back and shoulder injuries. The 35-year-old team captain hasn’t played in the big leagues since May 2016. He batted a combined .171 (7 for 41) with one double in 10 games for Class A St. Lucie and two with Triple-A Las Vegas last month before his rehab assignment expired on the final day of August.PITCHING PIGSKINSDavid Hess is set to start for the Orioles, a day after he was hit in the eye while playing catch with a football at Tropicana Field. It’s a normal sight across the majors to see pitchers doing running work involving football passes before batting practice. A specialist examined Hess’ left eye, and he was back in the Baltimore dugout Friday — wearing an LSU football helmet.
