White Sox Decline To Tender 2015 Contracts To Scott Carroll and Scott Snodgress

CHICAGO - The Chicago White Sox have declined to tender 2015 contracts to right-handed pitcher Scott Carroll and left-hander Scott Snodgress.

Carroll, 30, went 5-10 with a 4.80 ERA (69 ER/129.1 IP) over 26 appearances (19 starts) with the White Sox last season, his first in the major leagues. He was 3-1 with a 1.57 mark (4 ER/23.0 IP) in four starts with Class AAA Charlotte before having his contract purchased on April 27. Carroll was designated for assignment on November 25 to make room for first baseman Adam LaRoche on the 40-man roster.

Snodgress, 25, spent most of the 2014 season in the White Sox minor-league system, going 6-7 with a 3.89 ERA (53 ER/122.2 IP) over 21 starts between Charlotte and Class AA Birmingham. He also made his major-league debut with the Sox last season, allowing seven runs (four earned) in 2.1 IP over four relief appearances in September. Snodgress was selected by Chicago in the fifth round of the 2011 draft out of Stanford University.

With the moves, the White Sox 40-man roster is at 39.
