White Sox morning roundup

From yesterday:

Missed any of Inside Look featuring Jerry Reinsdorf? We've got you covered.

The White Sox made their first round of cuts, although perhaps the most notable roster move Wednesday was bumping Tyler Saladino up to big league camp. Saladino started at second base and struck out twice in three hitless at-bats against Los Angeles.

But Adam Dunn homered to help the Sox net their third win of the spring. Chris Sale was touched up, but at least he's getting the kinks out in spring training, not the regular season.

Kenny Williams admitted to asking for top-quality prospects in return for his players this offseason, which would explain why he didn't lead the Sox into the realm of rebuilding many expected.

Sox players who made our all-city team of the 1970s: Brian Downing, Dick Allen, Chet Lemon, Bill Melton, Carlos May, Wilbur Wood, Jim Kaat, Steve Stone, Goose Gossage and Terry Forster.

Around the division: Prince Fielder had a really good day, newly-extended Royals catcher Salvador Perez has a torn meniscus and will undergo surgery and the Twins got to Roy Halladay.

White Sox mourn passing of former pitcher Daniel Webb

Former White Sox pitcher Daniel Webb died at the age of 28 in an ATV accident on Saturday night, according to Humphreys County Sheriff Chris Davis.

Davis called it a “tragic accident, and we should rally around the family.”

Webb, a Paducah, Ky. native, was with the White Sox from 2013-16 and went 7-5 with a 4.50 ERA.

The White Sox released this statement:

Daniel left many friends within the Chicago White Sox organization, and we are all shocked and stunned by the news of last night's terrible accident. He was a terrific young man with a full life ahead of him. All thoughts and prayers go to his family and friends as they deal with today's tragic news.
