    Chris Sale Getty

    After tossing a one-hit shutout against the Angels in his last start on Sunday, Chris Sale got the best of them again last night. Sale struck out a season-high 12 over 7 2/3 scoreless innings as the White Sox topped the Angels 3-0 at Angel Stadium. The 24-year-old southpaw gave up just three hits and…

  2. Jeff Keppinger’s first walk of the season won the game

    May 17, 2013, 10:47 AM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v Chicago White Sox

    Heading into the eighth inning of last night’s White Sox-Angels game Jeff Keppinger had yet to draw a walk in 140 plate appearances this season. Angels reliever Michael Kohn was struggling to throw strikes, walking Conor Gillaspie and Dayan Viciedo back-to-back to load the bases with two outs for Keppinger, who came into the game…

    Detroit Tigers' Verlander reacts after leaving the game against Texas Rangers in their MLB American League baseball game in Arlington

    Rangers 10, Tigers 4: So much for pitching porn. Darvish wasn’t exactly sharp early but he ultimately settled down. Meanwhile, who put the benzedrine in Mr. Verlander’s Ovaltine? He was a hot mess. And I do mean hot. He was lighting up the radar gun in the early innings but was overthrowing and seemed to…

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

    May 16, 2013, 6:31 AM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v New York Yankees

    Mariners 12, Yankees 2: This one was over almost before it started, with Phil Hughes getting knocked around for seven runs in the first inning, which he did not escape. Raul Ibanez hit two homers and drove in six off his old team. Which, I imagine, will cause some columnist who has been lauding Brian…

  5. Paul Konerko returns to White Sox lineup after benching

    May 15, 2013, 11:19 AM EDT

    Paul Konerko

    Might this be the beginning of the end for Paul Konerko? Konerko, who turned 37 years old in March, is hitting just .214 with a .623 OPS and White Sox manager Robin Ventura has decided to bench him for the past two games. And possibly more. Konerko handled it well following a conversation with Ventura,…

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

    May 15, 2013, 6:26 AM EDT

    Andrew McCutchen, Jean Segura

    Pirates 4, Brewers 3: Andrew McCutchen with a walkoff bomb in the 12th. John Axford surrendered the lead in the eighth. He’s got a nifty 9.20 ERA now. Dodgers 2, Nationals 0: Clayton Kershaw stuck out 11 in eight and two-thirds shutout innings. He tossed 132 pitches: the most in his career and the most…

  7. Yankees School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

    Every now and again — well, let’s face it, pretty much every day now — I get another email telling me that Vernon Wells — Vernon Bleepin’ Wells — just got another two hits with another homer with another three RBIs and so on. The emails are from Michael Schur, Parks and Recreation executive producer,…

  8. Aaron Hicks had himself a game

    May 14, 2013, 9:13 AM EDT

    Chicago White Sox v Minnesota Twins

    Twins center fielder Aaron Hicks has had a pretty lousy year at the plate so far, but he sure had a night to remember last night against the White Sox. He took Sox starter Hector Santiago deep twice last night, both solo shots, one in the fourth and one in the sixth. But the highlight…

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

    May 14, 2013, 6:49 AM EDT

    Braves Diamondbacks Baseball

    Braves 10, Diamondbacks 1: Justin Upton went 4 for 5 with a homer and 2 RBI. Chris Johnson went 3 for 4 with a homer and 3 RBI. Martin Prado had a couple of hits and I suppose he was gritty. Gonna say that the first visit to Arizona for the Braves post-trade falls to…

    May 13, 2013, 5:30 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim v Chicago White Sox

    White Sox 3, Angels 0: Chris Sale was fantastic. And not just because of that suh-weet 1983 throwback jersey. A perfect game into the seventh and then the hit that inning to Mike Trout was all the Angels could muster. Indians 4, Tigers 3: Watched this one with the girlfriend’s parents. Tigers fans. Let’s just…

  11. White Sox activate Dayan Viciedo from the disabled list

    May 10, 2013, 2:44 PM EDT

    Dayan Viciedo Getty

    Chicago activated Dayan Viciedo from the disabled list after the left fielder missed three weeks with a strained oblique muscle. As usual with oblique injuries, Viciedo initially hoped to avoid the DL altogether and ended up missing more than the minimum 15 days once he was shut down. He played four games on a minor-league…

    May 9, 2013, 6:56 AM EDT

    Angel Hernandez, Bob Melvin

    Indians 4, Athletics 3: Angel Hernandez said there was not enough evidence with which to overturn the original call of double on Adam Rosales‘ would-be game-tying home run.  Of course, the replay clearly shows that it was a home run, with the ball hitting off the railing above the wall.  This is pretty simple: If…

  13. Dayan Viciedo set to begin rehab assignment

    May 6, 2013, 4:48 PM EDT

    Dayan Viciedo Getty

    On the disabled list with an oblique injury, White Sox left fielder Dayan Viciedo will begin a minor-league rehab assignment today at Triple-A. Viciedo is already eligible to come off the DL, but manager Robin Ventura told Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com that Viciedo is expected to spend 4-5 days on the rehab stint. Viciedo was…

  14. Gavin Floyd to undergo Tommy John surgery

    May 6, 2013, 3:25 PM EDT

    Gavin Floyd

    Gavin Floyd got a bunch of different opinions on his elbow injury, but the end result is the same: He’ll undergo Tommy John surgery. And because he has a torn flexor muscle in addition to a torn ulnar collateral ligament the White Sox announced that Floyd is expected to miss 14-19 months, which is longer…

  15. Jake Peavy cleared to start Wednesday after back injury

    May 6, 2013, 2:14 PM EDT

    Jake Peavy

    Jake Peavy was scratched from starts Thursday and today because of back spasms, but he’ll avoid the disabled list and start Wednesday against the Mets. Peavy threw a bullpen session this morning to test his back and Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports that he’s “good to go.” Peavy told Van Schouwen that…

  16. Billy Butler, Alex Gordon power Royals to victory in dramatic fashion

    May 5, 2013, 8:55 PM EDT

    The American League's best left fielder?

    The Royals won their fourth consecutive game this afternoon thanks to clutch hitting from Billy Butler and Alex Gordon. Trailing the White Sox 5-3 going into the ninth, the Royals were 18% to win according to FanGraphs win expectancy. It fell as low as 9% when Alcides Escobar flied out to center with runners on…

    As first reported by MLB.com’s Jordan Bastian, Indians outfielder Michael Bourn has been cleared to begin a minor league rehab assignment on Monday evening with the Triple-A Columbus Clippers.

    peavy getty

    As first reported by beat writer Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times, White Sox right-hander Jake Peavy has been ruled out for his scheduled Monday start against the Royals due to lingering stiffness in his lower back. Chris Sale will either be bumped ahead one day to make the start or the White Sox…

    May 3, 2013, 11:51 AM EDT

    John Danks AP

    John Danks took a big step in his recovery from August shoulder surgery, throwing seven innings at Double-A yesterday. Danks allowed two runs on five hits and one walk, striking out one. He needed just 86 pitches to record 21 outs and Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com reports that Danks was working at 87-90 miles per…

    May 3, 2013, 6:42 AM EDT

    St. Louis Cardinals v Milwaukee Brewers

    Cardinals 6, Brewers 5: Jake Westbrook with career win 100. And get this: dude allowed only one run in six innings and his ERA increased. Which, yes, will happen when you come in at 0.98. It’s now an unsightly 1.10. He talked after the game how 100 was a goal for him. And while, no,…

  21. Jake Peavy scratched from tonight’s start with back spasms

    May 2, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    Jake Peavy

    Hector Santiago was supposed to start in place of the injured Gavin Floyd tomorrow, but instead he’ll be needed tonight after the White Sox scratched Jake Peavy from his scheduled start with back spasms. Peavy was off to a very strong start with a 3.38 ERA and 39/6 K/BB ratio in 32 innings, building on…

  22. A.J. Pierzynski faces White Sox, gets plunked, talks about it

    May 2, 2013, 1:48 PM EDT

    A.J. Pierzynski, Addison Reed

    For most of A.J. Pierzynski‘s career we’ve heard some version of “opponents hate him, but teammates love him” applied to his ability to ruffle feathers on the field. Last night, after spending eight seasons as the White Sox’s starting catcher, Pierzynski faced the White Sox as a member of the Rangers. He came off the…

  23. Gavin Floyd seeking “multiple opinions” on elbow injury

    May 2, 2013, 12:46 PM EDT

    Gavin Floyd

    Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com reports that White Sox right-hander Gavin Floyd “will get multiple opinions on the severity of his injury” after being placed on the disabled list with a strained elbow. An MRI exam showed no structural damage, but Floyd has a history of elbow problems–including two disabled list stints last season–and went 0-4…

    May 2, 2013, 10:15 AM EDT

    Chase Headley AP

    After failing to agree to a long-term contract extension with the Padres this offseason Chase Headley explained that the two sides “weren’t on the same page” and added that “this close to free agency, it has to be a good deal for us.” Two months later Corey Brock of MLB.com reports that “Padres executive chairman…
