Report: Former White Sox prospect breaks into Pittsburgh office, eats pizza, falls asleep

Former White Sox pitching prospect Cory McGinnis has been charged with burglary after allegedly breaking into a Pittsburgh-area office over the weekend.

According to the New York Daily News, police found McGinnis asleep atop a pile of pillows with slices of pizza scattered nearby.

McGinnis, 26, was drafted by the White Sox in the 22nd round of the 2012 draft. He never advanced higher than Rookie-level ball, where he played 20 games between 2012-2013 and had a 4.53 ERA.

The company’s CEO, Phil LaBoon told KDKA in Pittsburgh that the pizza was left over from an office party on Friday.

“The fridge was filled with leftover pizza, and he came in and just dumped a whole bunch of stuff out, dumped pizza out, and there’s trails of pizza leading to the backroom,” LaBoon told the news station.

According to the report, McGinnis made himself comfortable – turning up the heat and even plugging in his cell phone.

He was found with pizza sauce on him, the report said. I guess you could say he was caught red-handed.

According to the White Sox, McGinnis is the nephew of “Home Improvement” star Tim Allen.
