WSC Birth Years: Tommy Kahnle
Born: August 7, 1989
Tommy was drafted in the fifth round of the 2010 amateur draft by the New York Yankees. He racked up relief appearances in the Yankees farm system through 2013. Kahnle was even invited to 2013 spring training by the Yankees. On December 12, 2013, Tommy was selected by the Colorado Rockies in the Rule V draft. He made his MLB debut on April 3, 2014 for the Rockies against the Miami Marlins, relieving Franklin Morales in the bottom of the sixth inning.
On November 24, 2014, Kahnle was traded to the Chicago White Sox. He made his White Sox debut on April 29, 2016 against the Orioles in Baltimore. Tommy appeared in five games before he was sent down, resulting in a 6.23 ERA. While he was sent down, chances are Kahnle will be back up before too long.
