From Rotoworld as of about 20 minutes ago.

White Sox signed infielder Ricky Gutierrez to a minor league contract and assigned him to Triple-A Charlotte.
Now they won't have to go back to Pedro Lopez next time they lose an infielder.

He's a shortstop, right? We could definitely use a backup there. See: Oakland series. :wink:

Maybe it's blue because Gutierrez used to be a sCrUB?

I agree about Lopez - looked good in the field, and better at the plate than a few of our regulars.

Gutierrez joins another former Cubbie in Charlotte, Roosevelt Brown.

Never hurts to have a little depth in the system, he'll never be a starter again but if someone goes down he'd be a decent guy off the bench for a week or so.

He is a fossil, but we would need help on that side of the field if Uribe has any more injuries. Hopefully, he has a little more gas in the tank. Just don't expect a miracle worker.

D'oh! I guess it'll be better to have a more experienced infielder if we need him down the stretch, but still. . . D'oh!

:gulp:

After seeing Gutierrez play 3b for Charlotte tonight I can say I am less than impressed. While he handled the bat well, he had 1 throwing error and almost a 2nd as he pulled the 1b off the bag with a second poor throw.

Lopez however looked very sharp at short and hit a 2r HR. I thought Lopez did OK while he was up. I would rather give lopez another look than the 33yr old Gutierrez.

I think this is all for a little extra depth. Lopez has to be higher on the call up list then Gutierrez. Or so I hope.

He has only played 44 games at 3b throughout his entire career. Most of his time has come at SS: 878 out of a total of 1079 major league games. I'd give him more of a chance than one game.

The blue is the color RotoWorld uses for its editorial comments.

I would hope so too, after all, Lopez has gotten a hit in both of his starts off some relatively good pitchers and played a capable middle infield.

Nothing wrong with this move. It couldn't have cost much and you never know what the 'baseball gods' have in mind for the Sox down the road.

FWIW - this may also be insurance for Charlotte in the event we need Lopez at the big club again. I doubt Gutierrez sees the majors.

A good move-WINNING teams have major league experience for depth

Lopez looked a little shakey, but he did come up with a couple of bit hits...especially that one in the Sunday Detroit game on the last homestand.

hopefully the infield will stay healthy and no call ups will be necessary

Ominous, Lip. Very ominous. I hope the baseball gods are thinking about a ball through the wickets of a former scrub in Game 7 of the ALCS.

Rotoworld has been badly scooped by WSI's own minor league forum.

No? The Blue is from rotoworld.

You are getting a ticket for impersonating an officer.

Can "EY" and Rod Beck be far behind?

I think we might be out of players in triple a. Some might be on dL.
