23-year-old Chicago White Sox prospect Anderson Comas has officially come out as gay, making him the third minor leaguer in history to come out, and is the only active out player in the minor leagues.

The Dominican Republican native as signed by the White Sox as an international free agent in 2017, and has most recently played in the Arizona Complex Rookie League in 2022.

He made the announcement via Instagram, sharing:

“Disclaimer: if you’re homophobic this post is may not for you or maby yes so you can see we all matters and we all are the same…

This may be my most personal thing I ever share and it’s that I’m proudly and happily part of the LGTBQ+ community. I’m also a human with a great soul, I’m respectful, I’m a lover, I love my family and friends and that’s what really matters.

I enjoy my work a lot, being a professional baseball player is the best thing that happened to me so I just wanna say something to those people that says that gay people can not be someone in this life, well look at me I’m gay and I’m a professional athlete so that didn’t stopped me to make my dreams come true.

I’m doing this cause I wanna be an inspiration for those like me out there fitting for their dreams, please don’t listen to those stupid things that people say about us, fight for your dreams, believe in yourself and go for it.”

White Sox assistant General manager Chris Getz weighed in on the news in a statement:

“Anderson first shared his news with us last year, and I was very pleased that he was comfortable sharing with us in player development.

I also was happy at the reaction across the organization, which, as you would expect, was to support, help and congratulate a teammate.”
