Making Tyler Saladino a main course

Coming into the 2017 season, the White Sox infield looked fairly set. There weren’t really any questions as to who would be playing where, at least not until the service time shuffle games passed and Yoan Moncada getting called up became a realistic proposition. Jose Abreu and Todd Frazier would man the corners (until one of them — looking at you, Frazier — gets traded)....

Can White Sox’s Michael Kopech throw 107+ mph?

One of the top prospects the Red Sox had to give up to acquire Chris Sale was Michael Kopech, who is known for lighting up radar guns. He hit 105 mph in a minor league game last year that was played in Salem, Va., one of the fastest pitches ever recorded. So it’s clear that the guy can throw some serious gas. And apparently, 105 isn’t even his ceiling. Kopech’s personal trainer...
