Brewers' Connor Sadzeck: Gets invite to Brewers camp

The 30-year-old right-hander last appeared in the majors in 2019 with the Mariners, making 20 relief appearances while posting a 2.66 ERA and 27:15 K:BB across 23.2 innings.

White Sox's Connor Sadzeck: Joining White Sox for camp
Sadzeck signed with the White Sox as a non-roster invitee Thursday.
The 29-year-old righty owns a strong 2.18 ERA in 33 career innings at the highest level, though that's not backed up by his poor combination of a 22.4 percent strikeout rate and 17.1 percent walk rate. He missed most of 2019 with elbow troubles and didn't make the Mariners' 40-man roster at any point last season, so his chances of cracking the White Sox's Opening Day roster appear to be slim....

Mariners' Connor Sadzeck: Gets procedure for elbow
Sadzeck (elbow) underwent a non-surgical procedure in Texas earlier this week, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Divish's report labels Sadzeck's injury as a right elbow strain, which differs from the initial diagnosis of inflammation that was provided when the righty reliever first landed on the injured list June 4. Since he has yet to even graduate to mound work over the subsequent two months and is now on the mend from a minor procedure, Sadzeck seems unlikely to make it back from the 60-day IL until September, if at all....
