White Sox' Yermin Mercedes returns to minor-league club

Chicago Sun-Times Sports
Less than 24 hours after saying he was stepping away from baseball, Yermin Mercedes was in uniform for the White Sox’ Triple-A Charlotte Knights for their game in Durham, N.C., on Thursday.
That word came from the White Sox, who learned from everyone else Wednesday that Mercedes, demoted from the major-league club to Charlotte after falling into a prolonged hitting slump, said on Instagram that he was quitting.
“It could be just a little frustration,“ White Sox manager Tony La Russa said. "I’ll explain to him that he has a big-league future.”
Apparently it was just that. Mercedes apologized for his actions Thursday.
“I will never give up,” Mercedes posted. “I last 10 years in the minor leagues. My dream is to be a player established in the big leagues.
“I apologize.”
