White Sox's Korey Lee: May not make Opening Day roster
The White Sox won't carry three catchers on the Opening Day roster, which could mean Lee begins the season in the minors, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
The White Sox added both Max Stassi and Martin Maldonado this offseason, neither of whom have minor-league options. While Lee is a more logical fit for the rebuilding roster, he does have one option remaining. Lee has only six plate appearances to this point in the spring, but he has homered once and collected one other hit.... See More ... See Less

Lee is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Nationals, according to Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times.
Lee did not record a hit over his last five games and owns just a .270 OPS at the big-league level this season, so he will get a day to clear his head after starting three of Chicago's last four contests. Yasmani Grandal will replace Lee behind the dish.... See More ... See Less

White Sox's Korey Lee: Swats first career homer
Lee went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run in Tuesday's 7-6 loss against Kansas City.
Despite entering Tuesday's game hitless over his last eight appearances and sporting a 1-for-25 (.040) tally on the season, Lee delivered a three-run home run off Brady Singer for his first career long ball. Although Tuesday's performance was encouraging, fantasy managers shouldn't get their hopes up moving forward considering his previous struggles.... See More ... See Less

White Sox's Korey Lee: Heads to bench Sunday
Lee is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Athletics.
Lee will take a seat for the series finale after he started behind the plate in each of the past three games following his promotion from Triple-A Charlotte while going 1-for-10 with two walks a run. Though he'll give way to Yasmani Grandal on Sunday, Lee looks as though he's going to get a look as the White Sox's primary catcher down the stretch, at least until Seby Zavala (oblique) returns from the 10-day injured list....

White Sox's Korey Lee: Another start at catcher
Lee is getting another start at catcher and batting ninth Friday versus the Athletics.
Acquired from the Astros ahead of the Aug. 1 trade deadline in exchange for Kendall Graveman, Lee went 1-for-4 with a single and a run scored in his White Sox debut Thursday versus Oakland.

White Sox's Korey Lee: Promoted to big leagues
Lee was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte on Thursday.
Acquired from the Astros in the Kendall Graveman trade, Lee has batted .278/.325/.386 with five home runs and 13 stolen bases over 357 plate appearances at the Triple-A level in 2023. It's been a significant power drop-off after he slugged 25 homers in the minors last season, but Lee still has the potential to be an above-average hitting catcher who also offers some rare speed at the position. It's possible he receives regular at-bats down the stretch as the White Sox turn the page to 2024.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Korey Lee: Ready to debut for new organization
Lee (oblique) said Monday that he's "100 percent" healthy and will be ready to make his White Sox organizational debut for Triple-A Charlotte this week, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
Before the Astros traded him to the White Sox on Friday in exchange for reliever Kendall Graveman, Lee said that he was on track to return from Triple-A Sugar Land's 7-day injured list to start that same day. The trade delayed Lee from playing over the weekend, but now that he's settled with Charlotte, he looks set to be activated Tuesday. Lee, who had been on the shelf since July 7 with the right oblique strain, could be the first catcher in line for a promotion to the big leagues if the White Sox end up moving Yasmani Grandal prior to Tuesday's trade deadline....

White Sox's Korey Lee: Acquired in Graveman trade
Houston traded Lee (oblique) to the White Sox on Friday in exchange for Kendall Graveman, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
Lee has been on the minor-league injured list since early July because of a strained oblique, but he should be able to join up with the Triple-A affiliate of the White Sox sometime in August. When healthy this season, the 25-year-old catcher has slashed .283/.328/.406 with five homers and 12 steals across 68 games in the Pacific Coast League. He batted .160/.192/.240 over 12 major-league games (26 plate appearances) for the Astros in 2022.... See More ... See Less

Astros' Korey Lee: Overcomes groin injury
Lee (groin) rejoined the Triple-A Sugar Land lineup Friday and has gone 10-for-17 with a home run, four doubles, six runs and five RBI in his last three games.
Lee missed just a couple days of action last week with a left groin injury before returning to the lineup with a bang over the weekend. The 24-year-old maintains a spot on the 40-man roster, but he's at least fourth on the organizational catching depth chart with all of Martin Maldonado, Yainer Diaz and Cesar Salazar up with the big club at the moment....
