White Sox Outright Zach Remillard

Published on

White Sox utilityman Zach Remillard went unclaimed on outright waivers, according to the transaction log at MLB.com. A previous career outright gives him the right to test minor league free agency, but Chicago’s Triple-A affiliate announced that Remillard is back on their roster.

The Coastal Carolina product sticks with the only organization for which he’s played. A 10th-round draftee in 2016, Remillard slowly climbed the minor league ladder. He got his first big league call a year ago. Remillard played in 54 games as a rookie, turning in a .252/.295/.320 line through 160 plate appearances. The Sox outrighted him from the 40-man roster over the winter.

Remillard stuck in the organization at Triple-A Charlotte. Chicago selected him back onto the MLB roster in mid-April, but he only took five plate appearances in two games. He was designated for assignment last week when the Sox needed to clear 40-man roster space for Danny Mendick. While Mendick had been tearing the cover off the ball in Triple-A, Remillard has gotten out to a .120/.224/.160 start.

The 30-year-old has a fairly modest .237/.333/.365 slash in more than 1100 career Triple-A plate appearances. He’s a versatile defender who has extensive experience at all four infield spots and in left field.
