The White Sox announced today that they have acquired outfielder Paulo Orlando from the Dodgers. He has been assigned to Triple-A Charlotte.
The return isn’t know, but it’s likely a deal for cash considerations. Orlando had been serving as depth in the Los Angeles organization after signing a minors deal over the winter.
Orlando, 33, appeared in each of the past four seasons with the Royals but failed to reach 100 plate appearances in 2017 and 2018. He’s a .263/.289/.384 hitter over 918 plate appearances at the game’s highest level.
We have no OF depth. That’s why.
Could Reinsdork cheapness have any thing to do with it?
Why would any owner be stupid enough to pay a ton of money to fill a 4th OF spot on a AAA team? Pretty silly, don’t you think?
But if it makes you feel better, go ahead and blame this meaningless minor league move on JR’s cheapness.
It’s a minor league deal and Preston Tucker just left. He’s simply filling out a depth spot
It might have something to do with their AAA team having only 3 OFs after letting Preston Tucker go to Japan. In other words, organizational depth. The likelihood that he wears a Sox uniform at any point this season is virtually nonexistent.
Tucker went to Korea
You’re right, my bad. My point still stands as to why this otherwise meaningless transaction took place.
I thought they acquired his brother, Tony this morning very early….you know…Tony Orlando at dawn…..(I know, don’t quit my day job!)
I hereby knock that comment three times.
Twice on the pipe for me.
Means you ain’t gonna’ show
Next target = Tony Orlando

Hi I’m Troy McClure,you may remember me from telethons such as “Let’s save Tony Orlando’s house”
Well, someone has to keep Jon Jay’s spot warm.
