White Sox Outright Ramon Troncoso

The White Sox announced, on Twitter, that they have outrighted right-handers Ramon Troncoso and Brian Omogrosso and catcher Bryan Anderson to Triple-A Charlotte, thereby removing each from the team's 40-man roster.

Troncoso, 30, found his way back to the Major Leagues this season after struggling through 2012 with the Dodgers' Triple-A affiliate. He posted a 4.50 ERA In 30 innings for the White Sox, though his 5.4 K/9 and 4.8 BB/9 suggest that his ERA was somewhat of a mirage. He also missed a month with pericarditis — inflammation of the tissue surrounding his heart. Troncoso was eligible for arbitration and projected to earn roughly $700K, according to MLBTR contributor Matt Swartz. 

The 29-year-old Omogrosso allowed 17 earned runs in 16 1/3 innings for the ChiSox with 16 strikeouts and nine walks. Anderson went 1-for-18 in a brief stint with the White Sox but spent the majority of the season playing for Charlotte, where he slashed .224/.302/.400 in 235 plate appearances.

Chicago's 40-man roster is now down to 37.
