When the White Sox claimed Javy Guerra off of waivers from the Dodgers it seemed clear that he would be among those making the trip to Chicago when spring training ran its course. Today it’s evident that’s not the case, Guerra has been outrighted to Charlotte. Contributing to the assumption of his destiny with the big squad was his lack of minor league options, which means that he’ll have to clear waivers before reporting. He may be claimed by another team but the Sox brass making this decision so soon after their own claim leads me to believe they find that an unlikely turn of events.
The general assumption is that Daniel Webb may be the one to get that spot on the 25-man, but that would still leave an open spot left on the 40-man roster, which stands at 39. The White Sox are expected to make an official decision sometime after they wrap up their final exhibition game of the season tonight in Birmingham.
