Sands was outrighted to Triple-A Charlotte on Friday, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sands was designated for assignment on June 7, making him available to be picked up by another organization but no team made a move on him. As a result, he'll remain with the White Sox but will be removed from the 40-man roster. The 28-year-old will likely remain at the Triple-A level until the White Sox are in need of additional outfield depth.

Sands was designated for assignment Tuesday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sands had mostly been relegated to pinch-hitting duties, as he's tallied just one hit since May 21. He'll clear room on the roster for James Shields, who was officially added to the major league roster Tuesday after last week's trade.

Sands is in the lineup and batting fifth for Thursday's game against the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

Sands will get the start at DH while Avisail Garcia takes Adam Eaton's place in right field. The 28-year-old is hitting .250 with one home run and six RBI in 18 games this season.

Sands will serve as the designated hitter and bat seventh Saturday against the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

With Avisail Garcia out Saturday with a hamstring injury, Sands will step in for his sixth start of the season. Sands hasn't done a whole lot in his limited opportunities so far, but he does have a home run, and more at-bats should be available for as long as Garcia remains sidelined.

Sands went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer and three strikeouts in Wednesday's win over Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

Getting his first start of the year, Sands teased his enticing power potential with a bomb to deep center, but displayed his painful lack of contact skills in every other at-bat. While Sands can slot in at a few different positions -- first base, left field, right field, DH -- those spots are pretty well accounted for on the South Side. That leaves the 28-year-old slugger with only the occasional fill-in start.

Sands will bat seventh as the designated hitter on Wednesday against the Twins, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sands has only gotten one at-bat this season in his first year with the White Sox. The 28-year-old hit for a .236/.286/.390 slash line in 50 games with the Indians last year, but is unlikely to see too much playing time this season. He replaces Avisail Garcia in the lineup.

Sands has made the White Sox Opening Day roster, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sands has batted .188 (9-for-48) this spring along with three homers, nine runs, and nine RBI. Last year with Cleveland, he played 50 games and compiled a .236 average with 11 runs and 19 RBI over 123 at-bats. Given his experience at first base and in the outfield, he could play multiple roles for the White Sox this year, possibly filling in for Jose Abreu when he needs an off day or replacing Austin Jackson or Adam Eaton late in games.

Sands in the mix for the White Sox's final roster spot, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sands has shown his characteristic power this spring (his first in the White Sox organization), but he has also shown his characteristic strikeout tendencies. Still, the White Sox are in need of some bench power, and he could fit the bill.

Sands hit two home runs in the White Sox's win over the A's on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

The home runs were Sands' second and third in 32 at-bats this spring, but he has gotten on base at a below-average rate (.265 OBP) in his first White Sox camp. Sands entered camp with little chance of making the big league club, but he may now be on the bubble of an Adam LaRoche-less roster.
