Kenny Williams: Addison Reed to be called up only if the Sox are in contention [UPDATE]

Besides the close to sure call-ups of Shane Lindsay, Eduardo Escobar, and Hector Santiago before tomorrow’s game Kenny is thinking about calling up Addison Reed BUT:

Manager Kenny Williams said this week that he is prepared to recall [Addison] Reed only if the White Sox are in contention. It’s possible that Williams might wait to make a decision on Reed until he knows where the team stands after this weekend’s series against the Tigers.

One move Williams doesn’t seem prepared to make is to call up outfielder Jordan Danks, the brother of pitcher John Danks, who will start in the series opener Friday. Williams believes the White Sox have enough outfield coverage at this time.

What about Lastings Milledge? He’s hitting .291/.361/.431/.802.

UPDATE: The Sox called-up Reed, Lindsay and Escobar.

BTW, Sickels is giving a B+ grade to Reed. /UPDATE

Other White Sox links: Ozzie Guillen is rather a popular topic.

  1. Nice for them to implicitly say they’re not contending.

    The quadruple slash always gets me wrongly excited (ex: He’s slugging .802?!?!?! Oh wait….oh….oh. Darn)
