Phase one of the White Sox rebuild, the trading of top major league assets including Chris Sale, Adam Eaton and Jose Quintana for top prospects, is essentially done. Phase two is about developing those prospects at the major league and minor league levels, while continuing to bolster the farm system through the draft and also exploring more trade possibilities to expand and deepen the core of talent the Sox envision translating into repeated championship-caliber rosters.
The White Sox claimed corner outfielder Daniel Palka from the Twins, the club announced Saturday morning. Palka had been placed on waivers by the Twins. The left-handed hitting Palka, who hit 34 homers in the upper minor leagues in 2016, connected for 12 homers at Class AAA in 2017 while hitting to a .278/.330/.444 slash line over 362 plate appearances. He missed close to two months with a fractured left index finger. Palka was the Diamondbacks’ third-round draft pick in 2013.
The White Sox named 27-year-old Class A Kannapolis manager Justin Jirschele Minor League Coach of the Year and Phil Gulley Scout of the Year Thursday. In his first season as manager, Jirschele led Kannapolis to a first-half division title and a berth in the South Atlantic League finals. Gulley recommended and/or signed fourth-round pick Lincoln Henzman, sixth-round pick Kade McClure and 16th-round pick Logan Taylor in 2017.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
