Thoughts on Chicago White Sox prospect Caleb Frare

The White Sox add another rookie arm

Minor League Baseball: Eastern League All Star Game Gregory Fisher-USA TODAY Sports

Last week, the Chicago White Sox promoted relief prospect Ryan Burr.

Yesterday, the White Sox promoted their second-ranked relief prospect, Ian Hamilton.

Today, the White Sox announced that they have added another relief prospect, Caleb Frare, to their active roster with the rosters expanding from 25 to 40.

The White Sox acquired Frare in July from the New York Yankees in exchange for international bonus pool money. The Yankees dealt Frare because of their inability to protect him from the Rule-5 draft by keeping him on their 40-man roster.

In 43 appearances between Double-A and Triple-A in the White Sox and Yankees organizations, Frare is 5-1 with a 0.78 ERA. In 57.1 innings, Frare has struck out 77, and has given up just 32 hits. Frare has allowed just one home run the entire season.

Frare is a lefty whose role projects as a late-inning reliever/situational lefty. Back when the White Sox acquired Frare, our own John Sickels wrote about him:

Frare should get tons of opportunities in the final month of the season for the White Sox, and figures to break camp next season in the White Sox bullpen if his minor league success can carry over to Chicago.
