Spring Training Game Wrap 3/2/2017: White Sox 8 Giants 6

The pitching lines were ravaged by some ragged fielding which was too much for the hitters to overcome.  Key Lines:

Jimmy Rollins 2B- 0 for 3.  BA= .200.  Rollins played 2B and handled several chances including a nice toss to the SS to start a GIDP.

CJ Hinojosa 2B- 1 for 2, 2B.  BA= .167.  CJ had a couple of errors.  Not sure how much 2B he's played in the past.

Nick Hundley C- 2 for 4.  BA= .333.  Hundley made couple of throwing errors.

Orlando Calixte RF- 2 for 5, 2B, SB(1).  BA= .273.  Calixte shows off his versatility, both at the plate and in the field.  Darkhorse to make the Opening Day Roster.

Steven Duggar CF- 2 for 2, 2 BB, SB(1).  BA= .375.  Great day at the plate that's getting some national attention but made 2 fielding errors that seemed to contribute to Matt Moore's poor stat line.

Matt Moore LHP- 2.2 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 2 BB, 2 K.  ERA= 11.25.  I'm a little confused because the beat writeup said that Duggar's errors contributed to the runs given up here, but the are all officially earned.  Still in the get-your-work in stage of spring training.

Mark Melancon RHP- 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K.  ERA= 0.00.  Melancon is getting his work in and not allowing any baserunners.

Albert Suarez RHP- 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K.  ERA= 0.00.  With bullpen candidates giving up runs in bushels, does Suarez have a shot at a roster spot?

Derek Law RHP- 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K's.  ERA= 0.00.  A roster spot is Law's to lose.


Jeff Samardzija gets his second spring start against the A's today.

  1. Rollins: One of the beat writers says Rollins is playing well enough in a utility role around the infield that he's got a good shot at making the bench. I can't remember which one. Maybe Pavs. But thought I'd bring it up, especially since I really thought it was pointless signing when it happened and I never bury my errors.

    Dugger: I said something nice about his fielding. Goes out and commits two errors. Not gonna say another nice word... ;)

    Hundley: One of his throwing errors was to gun down a runner stealing. But Crawford didn't cover the bag. Unfortunately, baseball penalizes the thrower, not the receiver.
