Chicago White Sox rumors are hard to come by these days.
The fact is that White Sox general manager Rick Hahn runs a pretty tight ship and appears to have all of his shopping done early.
Take for example the minor league contract that he signed Brian Omogrosso to on Tuesday, via MLB.com's Scott Merkin. The move was not necessarily made to improve the 25-man roster. Rather, it provides the organization's minor league depth and provides an added level of insurance should one of Chicago's relievers go down with abn injury during the regular season.
Getting deeper in the minor leagues is what it has come to for Hahn and the White Sox following a series of unexpected moves over the past few months. Sure, White Sox fans would love to see Adam Dunn get launched and are champing at the bit for a new catcher, but let’s be realistic, neither of those moves are likely to happen before the regular season starts.
There is, of course, one rumor involving a Japanese free agent. Other than that, though, a vast majority of the conversation nowadays regarding the White Sox involves projected finishes, offensive metrics and the direction of the franchise under Hahn.
Let’s dig in and take a look at each of them.
