CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago White Sox lost 100 games , struck out more times than any other team in major league history and had several key prospects suffer serious injuries.They missed the playoffs for the 10th straight year, too.Still, the White Sox hope the worst of the rebuild is behind them and general manager Rick Hahn expects to see more signs of a turnaround next season with the young players on the roster continuing to mature and promising prospects in the pipeline.“I don’t think it’s too early to say we expect to be certainly more competitive,” Hahn said.After dropping 95 games last year, the White Sox came within six losses of the franchise record at 62-100. Only the Baltimore Orioles and Kansas City Royals had worse marks. They also set the major league record by striking out 1,594 times.“A lot of ups and a lot of downs,” manager Rick Renteria said. “Probably more downs than ups but some moments of clarity that we see for some of the guys that we have that we believe will be impactful for us going forward.”STAY OR GOThe White Sox hung onto Jose Abreu and Avisail Garcia last winter. The question is whether they will this time. Both players could be attractive to contenders with prospects to spare, though they had their seasons cut short by injuries. Abreu made his second All-Star team, but missed most of the final six weeks because of surgery to repair a testicular torsion and then an infection in his right thigh shortly after returning. Garcia went from hitting .330 in a breakout All-Star season in 2017 to .236 while being limited to 93 games because of discomfort in his right knee. He will have surgery.PITCHING INThe White Sox appear to have three solid rotation pitchers for the future in Carlos Rodon, Lucas Giolito and Reynaldo Lopez. Dylan Cease could join them at some point next season. The right-hander dominated at Class A and Double-A this year. Hahn might also look for outside help to boost the rotation and bullpen in the short term.“Just because we foresee a guy like Dylan Cease, let’s say, being a stalwart in a championship rotation in the future Brent Suter Jersey , we are going to wait until he’s fully ready to start that process,” Hahn said. “In the interim, we need to come up with alternatives.”ON THE MARKETManny Machado and Bryce Harper are due to hit the free agent market. That raises a question: Would the White Sox make a move for a big star now?“If we see long term pieces that make sense, in addition to augmenting the pitching or filling certain needs for 2019, I think we have the flexibility to pursue them and we are going to be opportunistic and respond to the market accordingly,” said Hahn, who did not mention any players by name.IN THE PIPELINEPrized outfielder Eloy Jimenez looks like he’s ready to make his major league debut. Jimenez — who along with Cease came to Chicago in the deal that sent Jose Quintana to the Cubs last season — hit a combined 337 with 22 homers and 75 RBIs for Double-A Birmingham and Triple-A Charlotte this year. Despite those numbers, the White Sox did not call him up. If they wait until mid-April, they will have him under contract control until 2025 rather than 2024. A similar scenario unfolded in 2015 between Kris Bryant and the Cubs.“At some point over the course of next year, either at the start or for the majority of the season, we’ll have Eloy Jimenez we project joining us and certainly by the middle or end of next year I suspect there will be some other young potential core pieces forcing their way to Chicago and allowing us to further solidify what this is going to look like going forward,” Hahn said.ON THE MENDWhite Sox fans might be as interested in the medical reports as the box scores. Pitcher Michael Kopech had Tommy John surgery in September after making four starts for the White Sox and will miss next season. Minor league third baseman Jake Burger — the No. 11 overall pick in the 2017 amateur draft — tore his left Achilles tendon in spring training and did it again walking in his backyard in May. Potential closer-of-the-future Zack Burdi is working his way back from Tommy John surgery in 2017. ST. PETERSBURG Boone Logan Jersey , Fla. (AP) The Tampa Bay Rays finished a long day of making trades by producing a long inning for Los Angeles starter Tyler Skaggs on Tuesday night in a win over the Angels.After making a series of deals just before the non-waiver trade deadline, the Rays broke through with a seven-run inning and beat the Angels 10-6 Tuesday night despite Mike Trout’s 30th home run.Trout’s homer, which came off Ryan Yarbrough in the seventh inning, made him the second major leaguer to hit 30 home runs and steal 20 bases in a season three times before the age of 26. The only other player to do it was Willie Mays.”It’s a cool accomplishment,” said Trout, who also doubled and scored the Angels’ first run.Yarbrough (10-5) became the first rookie to win 10 games this season despite giving up a career-high six runs on nine hits in five innings.”Obviously I’m happy about getting the win for the team and everything, but it’s not the way I envisioned my outing to go,” said Yarbrough. ”All I was worried about was being aggressive and sometimes you give up runs like that.”Yarbrough took over in the second inning after Rays starter Ryne Stanek pitched the first.”We probably pitched just good enough,” noted Rays manager Kevin Cash, whose staff had given up 37 runs in the last three games of a weekend series at Baltimore. ”Yarbs got hit a little but . . . it was better than what we saw over the weekend.”Carlos Gomez had two of the Tampa Bay’s six hits in a seven-run fourth inning off Angels starter Tyler Skaggs (8-7). That inning left the Rays with a 10-1 lead.Matt Duffy had three of the Rays’ 14 hits and every hitter in the lineup had a hit by the sixth inning.Jake Bauers‘ eighth home run got the Rays on the board in the second inning.”It was a crazy day. So to go out and put up the numbers that we did, that was a big thing for us,” Bauers said. ”We did it our way , good at bats strung together.”Skaggs lasted only 3 1/3 innings in his shortest start of the season, giving up 10 runs. The left-hander had given up only eight earned runs in his preceding eight starts, which included five wins.”Baseball is a humbling game,” he said. ”I really didn’t give our team a chance to win today. I feel like I’ve been throwing the ball as well as I ever had and today was probably the worst outing I’ve ever had in my life.”Skaggs entered the game with a 2.62 ERA, sixth in the American League, but it rose to 3.34.Kole Calhoun had three hits for the Angels including a two-run homer, his 13th of the season and seventh in 13 games.TRADE DEADLINE AND BEYONDIn the final hours before the non-waiver trade deadline, the Rays acquired OF Tommy Pham from St. Louis, traded C Wilson Ramos to Philadelphia, and traded RHP Chris Archer to Pittsburgh for OF Austin Meadows and RHP Tyler Glasnow. It was their 17th trade since Jan. 1 involving players on their 40-man roster, one short of the club record for an entire calendar year, set last year.The Rays also traded LHP Hunter Schryver to the Chicago White Sox for international signing bonus pool money. Schryver Max Kepler Jersey , 23, is a combined 1-3 with a 2.40 ERA and nine saves in 31 Class A appearances.INFIELD SHUFFLEDavid Fletcher is the regular second baseman in the wake of Ian Kinsler’s trade to Boston, manager Mike Scioscia said, and the Angels will ”mix and match” at third base with Luis Valbuena, Jefry Marte and Kaleb Cowart. Fletcher played shortstop Tuesday night with Andrelton Simmons getting a day off.TRAINERS ROOMAngels: P/DH Shohei Ohtani is ”out to 90 feet” on his long tosses, according to Scioscia, but will throw longer tosses before any consideration is given to starting the process of his return to the mound. He has not pitched since June 6.Rays: LHP Blake Snell (left shoulder fatigue) will have a bullpen session Wednesday in the hopes of turning to the rotation this coming weekend. Snell last pitched in the All-Star Game on July 17. . . RHP Jake Faria (left oblique strain) will be re-activated Wednesday. RHP Andrew Kittredge was optioned to Triple-A Durham.RAYS TWO-WAY PROSPECTBrendan McKay, Tampa Bay’s version of Ohtani, hit .209 with three homers and 14 RBIs through his first 18 games as a 1B/DH since a promotion from Low-A Bowling Green to High-A Charlotte. The left-hander has gone 2-2 with a 4.10 ERA in six mound appearances, including four starts entering Tuesday.UP NEXTRHP Nick Tropeano will pitch for the Angels on Wednesday night against newly acquired Glasnow. The newly acquired Pham will be in the lineup, Cash said.
