The White Sox optioned Mercedes to Triple-A Charlotte again on July 2, and he’s been ripping via minor league pitching since that point. In 14 video games and 61 plate appearances, he’s batting .309/.377/.655 with 4 residence runs, 5 doubles and a triple.
Regardless of Mercedes’ submit tonight, the White Sox say they haven’t acquired any formal indication from the participant himself. The staff launched the next assertion:
“The White Sox are conscious of tonight’s Instagram submit by Yermín Mercedes, who’s at present on the energetic roster of our Class AAA staff in Charlotte, NC. At this cut-off date, the White Sox haven’t acquired any official notification from Yermín regarding his future plans.”
