(670 The Score) The White Sox have placed infielder Yolmer Sanchez on waivers, according to reports.

The White Sox's decision to part ways with him doesn't come as a surprise, as Sanchez was projected to earn $6.2 million in arbitration and the organization has touted prospect Nick Madrigal waiting in the farm system with a quality chance to earn the starting second base job out of spring training or soon thereafter.

Sanchez, 27, has been an elite defender, winning a Gold Glove this past season. His troubles have come at the plate, where he's a career .244 hitter with a .656 OPS. Sanchez hit .252 with two homers, 43 RBIs and a .638 OPS in 149 games this past season.
