White Sox non-tender Dylan Axelrod, re-sign Tyler Flowers

Dylan Axelrod, Tyler Flowers

Dylan Axelrod spent much of the 2013 season in the rotation for the Chicago White Sox. He will not be on the roster in 2014.

The 28-year-old Axelrod had put up solid numbers in the minor leagues before posting a 5.68 ERA and 1.66 WHIP in 128 1/3 innings of work in 2013.

With the decision to non-tender Axelrod the White Sox will have an additional spot on their 40-man roster.

The White Sox also avoided arbitration with catcher Tyler Flowers agreeing to a one-year deal worth $950,000. He will serve as a back-up catcher to Josh Phegley this seaon after hitting just .195/.247/.355 in 2013.

There are still flashes of power in Flowers bat which the White Sox are hoping to see in 2014.
