26 year-old White Sox starter Sean Tracey doesn’t have much chance of making the team this spring, and he hopes Kenny Williams can accomodate him with a trade.
Tracey posted a 4.30 ERA at Triple A last year. His minor league equivalents: 6.27 K/9, 7.73 BB/9, 1.38 HR/9, and 10.07 H/9. Pitchers with that kind of control aren’t exactly hot commodities. PECOTA sees about a 10% chance he brings that walk rate under 5.0 per nine in the bigs this year. Tracey throws in the low 90s with unimpressive secondary pitches and profiles as a reliever according to Baseball America.
He’s best known for being berated by Ozzie Guillen for failing to hit Hank Blalock with a pitch last year. Give Tracey credit for trying twice.
