They are just way better at keeping their players healthy than any other team in the league. PECOTA does not take that into account. It's not, at all, about players not currently on the roster.

No. The article did a really good job of explaining that away. It's not interesting, really. Nor is it reason to assume the White Sox have anything but extremely long odds of winning 90 games.
