The White Sox designated righty Clevelan Santeliz for assignment, according to a team press release. The move created a spot on the 40-man roster for Gregory Infante, who was called up along with Alejandro de Aza and Tyler Flowers.
Santeliz, unfortunately, was designated on his 24th birthday. The reliever has a 4.65 ERA, 8.8 K/9, 5.9 BB/9, and nine home runs allowed in 50.3 Triple A innings this year. Heading into the season, Baseball America ranked Santeliz ninth among White Sox prospects. He has a closer mentality and a fastball/slider combo that can be "eye-popping," but clearly has command issues.
I swear the weirdest named players get DFA, why cant it be simple like Cherry Pie.
I was just thinking remember when Luke Jackson signed and Ray King thought his name was Sandwich Pick Jackson!!! That was funny.
I was actually thinking that the Indians should pick up Clevlan Santeliz. That would make namely sense right?
I think you’re thinking of Rocky Cherry.
Man. Couldn’t they have done it yesterday, or tomorrow?
I hope he ends up with the Indians one day.
Claim him Tigers.
