Chicago White Sox

  1. Chris Sale will rejoin White Sox rotation in 5-6 days

    Jul 31, 2012, 11:19 AM EDT

    Chris Sale

    Yesterday the White Sox announced that they’d be giving Chris Sale some time off amid concerns about his declining velocity and back-to-back poor starts in his first season as a big-league starter. It turns out that time off will basically amount to one skipped turn in the rotation, as manager Robin Ventura told Mark Gonzales…

  2. White Sox demote Opening Day closer Hector Santiago to minors

    Jul 30, 2012, 3:45 PM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Chicago White Sox

    Hector Santiago was manager Robin Ventura’s surprise choice as the White Sox’s closer coming out of spring training, but his time with ninth-inning duties was short-lived and now the 24-year-old rookie is headed back to the minors. Chicago optioned Santiago to Triple-A to make room on the roster for Francisco Liriano, who was acquired from…

  3. Chris Sale is “going through a little dead-arm period”

    Jul 30, 2012, 11:51 AM EDT

    Chris Sale

    Chris Sale‘s transition from reliever to starter has gone exceptionally well, but the left-hander admitted yesterday that he’s now “going through a little dead-arm period” and the White Sox plan to give him some rest. Sale made it clear that he doesn’t think the issue is anything serious, telling Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune…

  4. White Sox get left-hander Francisco Liriano from the Twins

    Jul 28, 2012, 11:22 PM EDT

    liriano twins getty

    As first noted by Mike Axisa of MLB Trade Rumors, the White Sox acquired lefty starter Francisco Liriano from the Twins on Saturday night for infielder Eduardo Escobar and left-hander Pedro Hernandez. Liriano drew trade interest from the Angels, Orioles, Cardinals, Blue Jays, Mets and Braves in recent weeks, but it was the Pale Hose…

  5. The Rangers are preparing to move Alexi Ogando back into the rotation

    Jul 28, 2012, 12:02 PM EDT

    Alexi Ogando Reuters

    We heard earlier this week that the Rangers were considering moving Alexi Ogando back in the starting rotation. Well, they got the ball rolling in last night’s loss to the White Sox. Last night’s starter, Yu Darvish, was knocked out of the ballgame after 6 1/3 innings, so Ogando ended up pitching the final 2…

  6. Kevin Youkilis leaves White Sox game with sprained ankle

    Jul 25, 2012, 5:02 PM EDT

    White Sox Youkilis celebrates game-winning single in MLB American League baseball game against Rangers in Chicago

    UPDATE: He’s fine, apparently, and will play Friday. 5:02 PM: The Youk gets hurt again: he left this afternoon’s Twins-White Sox game with a sprained ankle.  The injury happened in the fourth inning, though it wasn’t immediately apparent how he suffered the injury. Youkilis is hitting .249/.333/.415 and has 20 RBIs in 25 games since joining…

  7. The White Sox want Zack Greinke “badly”

    I want you, I want you so bad. I want yooooouuuu, I want you so bad, it’s driving me mad, it’s driving me mad. She’s so HEAVVVVVY!!!!

    Actor Sherman Hemsley dies at age 74 portrayed George Jefferson

    Holy moley, an awful lot of big news happened overnight. Ramirez a Dodger? Cole Hamels almost remaining with Philly? There were even some games! Athletics 7, Blue Jays 2: The A’s are streaking. That’s six in a row. Derek Norris hit a two-run homer and Yoenis Cespedes drove in three with a single. The A’s success at…

  9. Alex Rodriguez’s 2,000th career strikeout goes uncelebrated

    Jul 24, 2012, 11:48 PM EDT

    Alex Rodriguez

    I don’t get it; there really should have been a ceremony. Alex Rodriguez became just the fifth player in major league history to strike out 2,000 times when he went down swinging against Felix Hernandez in the sixth inning tonight. Rodriguez clearly looked the video board after the strikeout, obviously expecting at least some sort…

  10. Even when Angel Hernandez is right, he’s wrong

    Jul 24, 2012, 10:48 PM EDT

    Darin Mastoianni

    With the White Sox down 4-2 to the Twins, Alejandro De Aza hit a liner to shallow right to lead off the top of the seventh tonight. Darin Mastroianni made a diving play on the ball, but came up a little short, and replays made it clear he grabbed the ball on a hop, leaving…

  11. Indians acquire Brent Lillibridge from Red Sox

    Jul 24, 2012, 4:16 PM EDT

    Brent Lillibridge

    Brent Lillibridge is on the move again. Traded from the White Sox to the Red Sox in the Kevin Youkilis deal and then almost immediately designated for assignment by Boston, Lillibridge has now been dealt to the Indians for minor leaguer Jose De La Torre. He’s expected to join the Indians’ active roster and will…

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

    Jul 24, 2012, 6:16 AM EDT

    New York Yankees v Seattle Mariners

    Yankees 4, Mariners 1: Obviously Ichiro in Yankees clothing is the weirdest thing to hit baseball in some time. Must be how it felt to see Willie Mays wearing a Mets jersey or — and I really don’t think it’s hyperbole to say it — Babe Ruth in a Boston Braves uniform. OK, if that’s…

  13. Gavin Floyd returns from disabled list for tonight’s start

    Jul 23, 2012, 2:50 PM EDT

    Gavin Floyd Getty

    Out since July 7 with a sore elbow, Gavin Floyd is back from the disabled list and will start tonight versus Minnesota. Floyd has struggled against the Twins throughout his career, going 5-11 with a 5.87 ERA in 17 starts, and that includes 1-7 with an 8.06 ERA since 2010. Prior to the injury Floyd…

  14. Miguel Cabrera hits two bombs to reach 300 homers

    Jul 22, 2012, 6:08 PM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera

    Miguel Cabrera took Phil Humber deep twice Sunday to reach 300 career homers and help the Tigers top the White Sox 6-4. Cabrera’s second homer made him the second Venezuelan to reach 300 career homers. The first was Andres Galarraga, who finished his career with 399. Quintin Berry and Brennan Boesch also homered for Detroit…

  15. John Danks plays catch again, nearing mound work

    Jul 22, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    danks reuters

    Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com has a positive update on White Sox left-hander John Danks‘ ongoing rehab: The White Sox pitcher said a left shoulder strain, which has kept him on the disabled list since May 20, has responded well to recent activity and treatment. But after previous deadlines have arrived and passed, Danks refusees to…

  16. White Sox acquire Brett Myers from Astros

    Jul 21, 2012, 3:18 PM EDT

    Brett Myers Getty

    After completing a 10-player deal with the Blue Jays yesterday, Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow isn’t done wheeling and dealing. According to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com, the White Sox have acquired right-hander Brett Myers from the Astros. No word yet on who the Astros will receive in return. Myers was moved into the closer role…

  17. Gavin Floyd on track to return from disabled list Monday

    Jul 20, 2012, 9:31 PM EDT

    Gavin Floyd Getty

    It looks like Gavin Floyd‘s first career stint on the disabled list will be a brief one. Floyd, currently sidelined with right elbow tendinitis, threw 40-50 pitches in a bullpen session this afternoon. The White Sox want to see how he responds tomorrow before making an official announcement, but pitching coach Don Cooper told Dan…

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

    Jul 20, 2012, 6:22 AM EDT

    Chicago White Sox v Boston Red Sox

    Red Sox 3, White Sox 1: All Cody Ross does is hit three-run homers. The walkoff one here was his third in two days. Mets 9, Nationals 5: David Wright his a two-run and a three-run homer. He’s like a poor-man’s Cody Ross! R.A. Dickey is the first player in the NL to notch 13…

  19. Cody Ross plays hero as Red Sox top White Sox

    Jul 19, 2012, 11:13 PM EDT

    Cody Ross

    Cody Ross badly wanted a multiyear deal as a free agent over the winter. The Red Sox probably wish they had given one. Ross’s 16th homer of the season was a three-run shot off White Sox closer Addison Reed in the bottom of the ninth Thursday, giving the Red Sox all of their runs in…

  20. Adam Dunn stole a base

    Jul 18, 2012, 11:33 AM EDT

    Adam Dunn steals base

    Before last night, the last time Adam Dunn stole a base the Eliot Spitzer sex scandal was big news. Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers still existed. “Single Ladies” and “I kissed a girl” were big hits. It was 2008, and it seems so long ago. But he did it against the Red Sox. Watch it…

  21. Kevin Youkilis is hitting .319 with 18 RBIs in 18 games for the White Sox

    Jul 18, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    White Sox Youkilis celebrates game-winning single in MLB American League baseball game against Rangers in Chicago

    Kevin Youkilis‘ return to Boston has so far consisted of four hits in two games, including a homer and two doubles, and the Red Sox castoff is now batting .319 with four homers, a .965 OPS, and 18 RBIs in 18 games since being traded to the White Sox. It’s early, of course, but he’s…

  22. White Sox place Gavin Floyd on DL, activate Philip Humber

    Jul 17, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

    Gavin Floyd

    Gavin Floyd was scratched from his scheduled Monday start with an elbow injury that the White Sox hoped would prove minor, but today they placed him on the disabled list. The move was made to create a roster opening for Philip Humber, who returns from the DL after missing the past month with an elbow…

  23. Report: White Sox target Yankees prospect Dellin Betances in trade talks

    Jul 17, 2012, 1:50 AM EDT

    Dellin Betances

    From The Trentonian’s Josh Norris, maybe the best minor league best writer around, comes word that the White Sox have scouted Dellin Betances’  last three starts and are attempting to trade for the Yankees prospect. Betances’ stock has tumbled this year, with the 6-foot-8 right-hander getting demoted to Double-A Trenton after going 3-5 with a…

  24. The Red Sox designate Brent Lillibridge for assignment

    Jul 16, 2012, 4:30 PM EDT

    Brent Lillibridge

    The initial significance of the news that the Red Sox are going to designate Brent Lillibridge for assignment: that makes room for Carl Crawford on the 40-man roster. The larger significance: it means that the Red Sox effectively traded Kevin Youkilis for a 25 year-old minor league pitcher in Zach Stewart. Makes me wonder why…

  25. The White Sox are reportedly interested in Zack Greinke

    Jul 16, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    Zack Greinke

    Jon Heyman says that according to “sources” — god, I love mid-to-late July! — the White Sox are interested in Zack Greinke. No word on how serious it is or what they’d offer, but Greinke would certainly help them out.  The Sox’ rotation looks good at first blush with Chris Sale, Jack Peavy and Jose…
