INF Steve Tolleson agrees to terms on minor league deal with White Sox. #orioles wanted him back. Chisox view him as potential super utility


Kind of wanted him back. Not a huge deal though.

He was certainly a known quantity but there lots more like him on the market.

Tolleson might have hung on as a backup but with Machado a fixture at third for a long time it was a smart move he chose another organization 8-)

He w/have been a real useful infield sub if he could have hit a little more, something like Chris Gomez. But since he didn't hit, his departure shouldn't elicit too much grief in Birdland.

Nobody thinks Tolleson was an answer they just liked him as UTIL player or AAA depth.
