The Chicago White Sox are calling up highly regraded second baseman Nick Madrigal, sources tell ESPN. He’ll join the team in Kansas City. The White Sox chose him fourth overall in the 2018 draft.
Prior to tonight’s series opener at Kansas City, the Chicago White Sox purchased the contract of second baseman Nick Madrigal from the Schaumburg training facility and designated right-handed pitcher Kelvin Herrera for assignment.
THE WHITE SOX ARE CALLING UP NICK MADRIGAL!!!
Nick Madrigal will start at 2nd tonight and he’ll hit 9th. The team just got a touch smarter. Nick’s baseball acumen is off the charts. Don’t expect Whit Merrifield right off the bat. Give a Nick some time to adjust. He’s young. Sox defense just got better. TA and Nick for awhile

Nick Madrigal has joined the @whitesox
, and we’re all going to love watching him. Exciting player who creates action all over the field. He struck out in only 3% of his minor league PA. “Insane hand-eye coordination,” @Rody1618

Network @Cut4 @MLB

The smallest guy on the team should always wear No. 1 and that's what the 5-foot-7 Nick Madrigal will do.
The White Sox have called up Nick Madrigal. What can we expect from MLB’s No. 39 prospect? @JimCallisMLB breaks it down: https://t.co/YIeuDVpcnu
Six games into last season at High-A Winston-Salem, Nick Madrigal was hitting .200/.250/.200. His teammate, Luis Robert, sidled up to him and told him that was about to change.
As told by @Joe_Weil
Want to Win $5 tonight!? Just Retweet this (and follow), and if Nick Madrigal Homers in his debut tonight 7/31 (inside the parkers count), one lucky Retweet-er will win 5 bucks cold hard cash (Via PayPayl) (approximate odds are substantially better than SoxSplit).
You can make a lineup better than 1/3 of MLB w/ only players who have batted 9th this season.

Nick Madrigal went 72 plate appearances without striking out to begin his professional career in 2018. Doesn’t walk much, either. You can count on him putting the ball in play! https://t.co/Wjp0OB8Xod
