There is a good chance that if you’ve found this page then you’re playing the Immaculate Grid.
That also means that today’s grid has asked for players that have played for both the New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox.
And, it also means that you’re probably stuck on this particular box and you’re looking for a little help. Sound about right so far?
Well, good news, you’re in the right place.
I’ve done some research and have found players who played for both the Yankees and White Sox.
David Wells, nicknamed “Boomer”, was a major force on the baseball mound from 1987 to 2007, spending time with the Blue Jays, Yankees, Padres, and several other teams including Tigers, Red Sox, Dodgers, Reds, Orioles and White Sox.
A key player in the Yankees’ ’98 World Series win, Wells also pitched a rare perfect game that same year.
His career stats are impressive, with a total of 239 wins and over 2,200 strikeouts over the course of 21 seasons.
Bartolo Colon, affectionately known as “Big Sexy”, was a fixture on the mound in baseball from 1997 until 2018. He played for a whole bunch of teams (11), which makes him an extremely versatile player for the Immaculate Grid.
Colon’s career stops included the Indians (now Guardians), Dodgers, Mets, Athletics, White Sox, Twins, Braves, Red Sox, Rangers, Montreal Expos and Yankees.
Colon was a 4-time All-Star and even bagged a Cy Young Award in 2005. He had over 240 wins and more than 2,500 strikeouts.

Lance Lynn was drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals in the first round of the 2008 MLB Draft. He made his major league debut in 2011 and quickly became a key part of the Cardinals’ rotation. During his time in St. Louis, he helped the team win a World Series championship in 2011.
After leaving the Cardinals, Lynn had stints with the Minnesota Twins and New York Yankees, continuing to demonstrate his ability as a solid starting pitcher. In 2019, he joined the Texas Rangers, where he had one of his best seasons, leading the American League in starts and finishing fifth in Cy Young Award voting.
Lance Lynn later joined the White Sox and now the Dodgers, where he continues to be a valuable asset to the team’s pitching staff. His consistent performances, strong work ethic, and ability to pitch deep into games have made him a sought-after pitcher and a leader on the mound.
