The Chicago White Sox are in agreement with right-handed pitcher Jake Woodford. The deal is a minor-league deal with an invite to spring training. Jake Woodford has spent his entire four-year career with the St. Louis Cardinals, and now, he ends up with the White Sox, where he can work to play in the MLB with them.
The Cardinals mainly used Jake Woodford as a swing man. So, if they ever needed a starter, he would start. Also, he'd be coming out of the bullpen. He did a little bit of both with the Cardinals, so that's what mainly stands out about the type of pitcher Jake Woodford is.
For Woodford's career, he's always been a solid pitcher for the Cardinals. Jake Woodford is someone who you can rely on to always be there when you need a pitcher. In his career, Woodford has pitched in 80 MLB games. He's posted a 10-7 record, 184.2 IP, 4.29 ERA, 119 SO, and a 1.370 WHIP
This will be the first time ever that Jake Woodford will be pitching somewhere else then the Cardinals. Woodford was drafted by the Cardinals in 2015. Jake Woodford will have to have a good spring training to earn himself a spot on the major league roster with the White Sox, so Woodford will be working hard in spring.
