White Sox blame 'glitch' for omitting Middleton's name from scoreboard

The Chicago White Sox say they didn’t intentionally omit Keynan Middleton‘s name from the scoreboard during Wednesday’s game against the New York Yankees.

Middleton was making his first appearance against his old team since being traded to the Yankees. The 29-year-old reliever made headlines following the deal by blasting the “no rules” culture within the White Sox.

So the White Sox decide not to acknowledge that Kenyan Middleton is currently pitching right now….

Guess he doesn’t exist?

“The omission was not intentional but resulted because of duplicate players listed under one uniform on MLB’s downloadable Yankees roster,” the White Sox said postgame, according to Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times. “This glitch has arisen from time to time this season when multiple players have worn the same number for a team, and we regret it occurred tonight.”

The Yankees also have prospect Everson Pereira on their 40-man roster. He wears No. 93, which is the same number Middleton received when he joined New York.

The White Sox also refuted Middleton’s claims that a rookie reliever was allowed to sleep regularly during games and that other players missed meetings and practices. However, another ex-White Sox pitcher, Lance Lynn, backed up his former teammate’s revelations.
