Andy Wilkins: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
After leading the International League in home runs in 2014, the White Sox lost Wilkins to waivers in spring training last year. He spent time with the Blue Jays and Dodgers organizations in 2015, but the Dodgers exposed him to waivers again in September and Baltimore snatched him up. He did not play a game at any level for the Orioles in 2015. Wilkins has spent about two and a half seasons at Triple-A with 55 home runs, but he struggled in the only 17 games of his MLB career with the White Sox in 2014. The Orioles saw Chris Davis enter free agency over the offseason and that leaves Wilkins and Christian Walker as internal candidates. The organization figures to sign or trade for a player, but if not Wilkins figures to get a shot at the job in spring training. Either way, he will compete for a bench spot at the minimum.
Wilkins led the International League with 30 home runs in 2014. He also contributed 38 doubles to achieve a career-best .265 ISO. Combine that power with Wilkins' plate discipline, and he could be an under-the-radar candidate for a roster spot on a Paul Konerko-less White Sox team.
