Royals/White Sox washed out in Chicago, doubleheader to be played Tuesday

Monday night’s game between the Kansas City Royals and the White Sox in Chicago was postponed due to rain. The teams will engage in a straight doubleheader on Tuesday, commencing at 3:40 p.m. Central Time (CT).

Kansas City right-hander Brady Singer (8-10, 5.34) will take the mound against Chicago right-hander Dylan Cease (6-7, 4.98) in the opener. Royals righty Jordan Lyles (4-16, 6.24) will face off against White Sox righty Touki Toussaint (3-6, 4.70) in the nightcap.

The Royals, who entered Monday’s play with the worst record in Major League Baseball at 44-100, and the White Sox, with a 55-88 record, the fourth-worst in MLB, have both been mathematically eliminated from postseason contention.

Earlier on Monday, the White Sox recalled right-hander Deivi Garcia and catcher Carlos Perez from Triple-A Charlotte. Chicago sent outfielder Oscar Colás and right-hander Edgar Navarro down to the farm team.

Colás initially made the White Sox opening day roster and was expected to be a regular in right field. However, the 24-year-old Cuban struggled, batting just .216 with five homers and 19 RBIs in 75 games. Despite his talent, he still needs to work on fundamental baseball skills and reducing mistakes.

Manager Pedro Grifol commented, “He’s got the tools to make an impact on this team. However, fundamentally, he still needs a lot of work. He needs to go down there and focus on improving those fundamentals.”

Grifol also mentioned that Colás would benefit from playing winter baseball after the season to refine his game.

Garcia, 24, was claimed by the White Sox off waivers from the Yankees on August 10. He has started in eight of 10 career games with New York over three seasons, posting a 3-4 record with a 4.84 ERA.

Grifol expects the 27-year-old Perez to see some playing time behind catcher Korey Lee, a 24-year-old prospect the White Sox recalled on August 24, and veteran Yasmani Grandal, who also plays at first base and serves as the designated hitter.

“He’s a right-handed bat that we think has promise,” Grifol stated.

On Monday, the Royals selected the contract of catcher Logan Porter from Triple-A Omaha and designated catcher Tyler Cropley for assignment.

Porter, 28, is a Las Vegas native who went undrafted and was signed as a free agent into the Royals’ system from Dixie State University. Porter attended high school across the street from the Royals’ spring training facility in Surprise, Arizona, and worked as a clubhouse attendant there.

Porter joined the Royals in Chicago and will have his first opportunity to play in the majors behind eight-time All-Star catcher Salvador Perez.
