White Sox Spring Training Twitter Deluge Will Melt Winter Away

577

Let the deluge of tweets and media vignettes rain down upon the White Sox cheery masses as Spring Training inches closer. Those of importance have arrived in Glendale, Arizona and seem to have challenged each other to beat the veterans to camp. And besides a parade of prospects swarming the White Sox spring training complex, a gaggle of journalists has descended on sunny Arizona as well.

One essential follow on Twitter is The Athletic’s, James Fegan. He was one of the first beat writers for The Athletic in 2017 covering the White Sox and now that the roster has grown into an all-star team (adding Jayson Stark, Eno Sarris and Jim Bowden today alone) Fegan is easily lost among the crowd.

But…the talented scribe has an eye for giving the fanbase what they want, and he dumped a heaping pile of it on Twitter this afternoon.

Below is a collection of videos from Fegan, whose sweet pops and misty hums will melt away the avalanche of snow dumped on Chicago in the past week. So pull out your shorts and turn the heat up to 88 – it’s baseball season.

Dylan Cease and Ian Clarkin tossing light 45s to get a feel for pitches. This is a typical warm-up drill to start tweaking mechanics and feel for the pitch in the hand.

One of the newest White Sox players, Thyago Vieira tosses with Alec Hanson – don’t worry, it’s a very light toss.

Nate Jones tossed a little bit in a sign of optimism after undergoing nerve-repositioning surgery in his elbow last season. Aside from how ugly the mechanics look, it will be great to have Jones back in the bullpen.

Adam Engel feeding Tim Anderson in the cage.

Steaks getting some work in on the tee. Appears he and Anderson were working on a drill to get the hands activated all the way through the zone.
