Yoelqui Céspedes signed with the White Sox in January of 2021 for $2.05 million. Unfortunately visa issues delayed his debut and he would have to wait to make his professional debut June 19th with the Advanced A Salem Dash. This was after initial projections had him starting at Double A with The Birmingham Barons. He would be promoted to the Barons on August 18th and proceed to slash .298/.340/.404 with 1 HR (video below) in 94 at bats.
