Chicago White Sox

  1. White Sox clip Tigers to open up three-game lead

    Sep 17, 2012, 6:10 PM EST

    A.J. Pierzynski, Addison Reed

    It wasn’t exactly a classic duel, but the White Sox put themselves another game up in the AL Central by beating the Tigers 5-4 in Monday’s makeup game. The game’s decisive play took place in the fifth, when Dayan Viciedo hit a grounder to short with the bases loaded and one out. Jhonny Peralta decided…

  2. The Tigers in a nutshell

    Sep 17, 2012, 4:51 PM EST

    Infante Fielder Error

    The game is still going on — as I write this the White Sox are leading the Tigers 5-4 in the eighth — but a play that happened in the bottom of the fifth sums up the frustration of the Tigers season. Bases loaded, one out and Dayan Viciedo at the plate. Doug Fister, a…

  3. Ryan Braun hits 200th, 201st career homers versus Mets

    Sep 16, 2012, 3:22 PM EST

    Ryan Braun

    3:40 p.m. EDT update: Braun just added his second solo shot of the game, giving him 201 career homers. /// Ryan Braun became the seventh player in major league history to reach 200 homers within his first six seasons when he took the Mets’ Chris Young deep on Sunday. Here’s the list of players with…

    Adam Dunn AP

    According to Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com, Adam Dunn is back in the starting lineup this afternoon against the Twins after missing seven straight games with a strained right oblique. He’s playing first base in his return. Dunn originally tweaked his oblique on a check swing on August 29 and hasn’t played since aggravating the injury…

  5. Edwin Encarnacion joins the 40-homer club

    Sep 14, 2012, 11:51 AM EST

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim  v Toronto Blue Jays

    For the third straight season the Blue Jays have a 40-homer hitter, as Edwin Encarnacion went deep last night for the 40th time after Jose Bautista reached that mark in both 2010 and 2011. Encarnacion has always had a ton of offensive upside, especially in terms of power potential, so much so that the Reds…

  6. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 14, 2012, 3:46 AM EST

    St Louis Cardinals v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Cardinals 2, Dodgers 1: A must-win for both teams if they wanted to stop the bleeding, but a muster-win for L.A. since they’re behind in the standings. Just didn’t happen, though. Lance Lynn, back in the rotation in a spot start, allowed one run in six innings and struck out seven to give the Cardinals a…

  7. The Red Sox win the championship!

    Sep 13, 2012, 10:30 PM EST

    Pawtucket Red Sox

    OK, it was just the Governors’ Cup, the trophy given to the winner of the Triple-A level International League championship. But it is one thing for the Red Sox to celebrate in a dismal 2012 season. They hadn’t won the title in 28 years. The Pawtucket Red Sox finished a sweep of the best-of-five series…

  8. White Sox and Indians reschedule their September 25 game for Yom Kippur

    Sep 13, 2012, 11:00 AM EST

    white sox logo

    The Chicago White Sox announced yesterday that their September 25th home game against the Indians has been moved up from 7:10 p.m. to 1:10 for Yom Kippur. Though it wasn’t the team’s original intention to move game time up from 7:10 p.m., the White Sox will gain the services of third baseman Kevin Youkilis, who…

  9. That was fast: Francisco Liriano is back in the White Sox rotation

    Sep 13, 2012, 10:31 AM EST

    Francisco Liriano

    The White Sox rotation is rather fluid these days. The other day, they decided to go with Hector Santiago — who was once this team’s closer — Jose Quintana and Jake Peavy as their starters this weekend, eschewing Francisco Liriano.  Then, last night, Santiago threw 49 pitches in relief. So now, Dan Hayes reports, Francisco Liriano appears to be back in line…

  10. Adam Dunn’s right oblique is not making much progress

    Sep 12, 2012, 8:31 PM EST

    dunn getty

    White Sox manager Robin Ventura suggested to reporters after Tuesday night’s 5-3 loss to the Tigers that designated hitter Adam Dunn might be ready to return to the starting lineup Wednesday evening. But Dunn failed to make it through batting practice on Wednesday afternoon, according to Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com, and has experienced little to…

  11. Francisco Liriano is out of the White Sox rotation for now

    Sep 12, 2012, 4:05 PM EST

    Francisco Liriano

    When the White Sox bumped Francisco Liriano from his start tonight in favor of Gavin Floyd, it was supposed to be a two-day move, with Liriano possibly pitching out of the pen against the Tigers and then starting Friday against the Twins. That plan is out the window now. The White Sox announced that they’d…

  12. Bobby Valentine brings boxing gloves to radio show, plans to manage Red Sox in 2013 “and beyond”

    Sep 12, 2012, 3:40 PM EST

    Bobby Valentine

    Last week Bobby Valentine made headlines for saying he wanted to punch WEEI radio host Glenn Ordway following what the Red Sox manager thought was an obnoxious question. Valentine was back on WEEI and Ordway’s show this afternoon and jokingly brought boxing gloves to the studio. In addition to proving (or at least attempting to…

  13. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 11, 2012, 6:22 AM EST

    A.J. Pierzynski, Alex Rios

    White Sox 6, Tigers 1: The offense continues to snooze. And the Tigers are getting so little respect that some clever wags out there are calling them the “Kittens.” That’s just sad, dude. Alex Rios and Gordon Beckham did most of the damage for the Sox. Phillies 3, Marlins 1: Fifth straight for Philly, as…

  14. Kittens come up short again in 6-1 loss to White Sox

    Sep 10, 2012, 11:40 PM EST

    Austin Jackson

    Going 0-for-10 with runners in scoring position isn’t a recipe for success. Since sweeping the White Sox from Aug. 31-Sept. 2, the Tigers have been tamed at the plate: Sept. 3: Lost 2-3 vs. Clev Sept. 4: Lost 2-3 vs. Clev Sept. 5: Won 7-1 vs. Clev Sept. 7: Lost 2-3 at LAA Sept. 8:…

  15. White Sox pick Gavin Floyd over Francisco Liriano versus Tigers

    Sep 10, 2012, 6:42 PM EST

    Gavin Floyd

    The White Sox won’t be easing Gavin Floyd back into the rotation in his return from a sore elbow; he’ll start Wednesday night in the third game of a four-game series against the rival Tigers. The change pushes Francisco Liriano back to Friday, when he’ll face the Twins. By making the move, the White Sox…

  16. Adam Dunn might not return for another five days because of strained right oblique muscle

    Sep 9, 2012, 2:38 PM EST

    adam dunn getty

    White Sox slugger Adam Dunn was not in the lineup Saturday, is not in the lineup Sunday and is not expected to return to action anytime soon. Toni Ginnetti of the Chicago Sun-Times reports that Dunn “could miss another five days” as he continues to battle through a strained right oblique muscle. Which means that…

  17. 2013 Top 111 Free Agents: Nos. 50-1

    Sep 7, 2012, 12:10 PM EST

    Josh Hamilton

    Here’s the top 50 of a rather weak free agent class. Again, I didn’t include Robinson Cano, R.A. Dickey and some others whose options are sure to be picked up. Also absent is Mark Reynolds. He is not eligible for free agency, though there’s a good chance he’ll be non-tendered this winter. All ages are…

  18. 2013 Top 111 Free Agents: Nos. 80-51

    Ichiro Suzuki

    Here’s part two of the top 111 free agents list. Part one can be found here, and I’ll be posting the top 50 tomorrow. 80. Carlos Lee (1B Marlins – Age 36): Lee still hits a fair number of liners at age 36, but his home run total has dropped six straight seasons and he…

  19. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 6, 2012, 5:40 AM EST

    Bryce Harper

    In addition to the box scores, I also watched Bill Clinton last night. No matter what your politics, I hope we can agree that Clinton makes everyone want to listen to their “Siamese Dream” cassette and drive around in their Chevy Cavalier, waiting for their pager to blow up.  Anyway: Nationals 9, Cubs 1: Gio…

    Sep 5, 2012, 6:11 AM EST

    Orioles Tolleson, Machado, and Betemit celebrate defeating the Blue Jays during their MLB American League baseball game in Toronto

    Orioles 12, Blue Jays 0: Zach Britton throwing seven shutout innings + Mark Reynolds driving in four + Yankees losing = First place for the Orioles dudes. Rays 5, Yankees 2: This is that Yankees loss I just mentioned. Freddy Garcia allowed five runs over five. I know this isn’t the case, but as I sit…

  21. Royals prospect Wil Myers named Baseball America minor league player of the year

    Sep 4, 2012, 12:46 PM EST

    Wil Myers

    Baseball America announced its annual minor league player of the year today and the winner is Royals prospect Wil Myers, who hit .314 with 37 homers in 134 games between Double-A and Triple-A at age 21. J.J. Cooper’s lengthy article about Myers includes this interesting tidbit: He joins Paul Konerko, Troy Glaus, Jose Canseco, and…

  22. Injured Gavin Floyd calls bullpen session “a step in the right direction”

    Sep 4, 2012, 11:51 AM EST

    Gavin Floyd Getty

    On the disabled list with elbow problems for the second time this season, Gavin Floyd threw a 20-pitch bullpen session yesterday and called it “a step in the right direction.” Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports that Floyd will throw another bullpen session Thursday, mixing in breaking balls along with fastballs, at which point the White…

  23. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 4, 2012, 5:40 AM EST

    Baltimore Orioles v Toronto Blue Jays

    Orioles 4, Blues Jays 0; Rays 4, Yankees 3:  As mentioned yesterday, this combo brings the Yankees lead over the O’s down to one game in the AL East, with the Rays only two and a half back themselves. I don’t suppose we’re so lucky to have a Yankees collapse come a year after the…

  24. White Sox activate Alejandro De Aza from the disabled list

    Sep 2, 2012, 1:57 PM EST

    de aza getty

    From beat writer Mark D. Gonzalez of the Chicago Tribune comes word that White Sox center fielder Alejandro De Aza has been activated off the 15-day disabled list. MLB rosters expanded on September 1, so no corresponding move was necessary. De Aza wound up missing a little more than two weeks with a bruised left…

  25. Lastings Milledge, Wily Mo Pena among league leaders in Japan

    Aug 31, 2012, 4:13 PM EST

    Lastings Milledge Pirates

    Here’s a quick look at how some major leaguers are faring in Japan. Remember, the Japanese leagues started strongly favoring pitchers with the switch to a new baseball last year. In the six-team Pacific League, 13 pitchers currently qualify for the ERA title and the worst of the bunch has a 2.91 ERA. Three of…
