Chicago White Sox

  1. White Sox release left-handed reliever Will Ohman

    Jul 3, 2012, 6:39 PM EDT

    Will Ohman

    Last week the White Sox designated Will Ohman for assignment just hours after he finished a blowout win and today they released the veteran reliever. Ohman and his $2.5 million salary predictably passed through waivers unclaimed, but now that he’s available for a prorated share of the minimum salary the left-hander should be able to…

  2. Chipper Jones is leading the NL Final Vote thing; Bryce Harper third

    Jul 3, 2012, 11:33 AM EDT

    Chipper Jones AP

    Major League Baseball announced the in-progress Final Vote totals a little while ago and the fans are going with history over the future: Chipper Jones leads the thing with David Freese second and Bryce Harper third. Can’t really blame this on homer ballot box-stuffing given that, as so many of you remind me when I…

  3. Robinson Cano picks his AL Home Run Derby team

    Jul 2, 2012, 6:28 PM EDT

    Jose Bautista

    There was no talking Josh Hamilton into taking part in the Home Run Derby, so Robinson Cano went with some pretty good fallbacks Monday: Jose Bautista, Prince Fielder and Mark Trumbo. Bautista leads the AL with 26 homers at the moment, one more than Hamilton. Cano and Trumbo both have 20 apiece, while Fielder lags…

  4. The Red Sox is outfield about to get very crowded

    Jul 2, 2012, 6:16 PM EDT

    Carl Crawford, Jacoby Ellsbury, Darnell McDonald

    Jacoby Ellsbury homered in his rehab game Monday, Carl Crawford is moving his rehab up to Double-A Portland with an eye towards returning right after the All-Star break and Scott Podsednik is rehabbing at Triple-A just awaiting his activation. Ryan Sweeney (toe) will probably be back before the end of the month, too. In the…

  5. “Final Vote” balloting now open for 2012 All-Star Game

    Jul 1, 2012, 3:35 PM EDT

    final vote

    Major League Baseball revealed its 2012 All-Star rosters Sunday on TBS. But not everything is set for next Tuesday night’s game in Kansas City. Over the next week, online ballots can be cast to send one additional player from each league to participate in this year’s Midsummer Classic. MLB calls it the “Final Vote,” and…

  6. Austin Jackson, Bryce Harper lead All-Star snubs

    Jul 1, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    You knew it was coming. In truth, I think those in charge did a better job of picking this season’s All-Stars than they have in recent years. Still, I have some disagreements, even if none of them are quite as vehement as last season’s. Austin Jackson (OF Tigers) – Jackson’s DL stint probably cost him…

  7. Selection Sunday: Your 2012 All-Star rosters are revealed…

    mlb all-star patch

    Major League Baseball is announcing the All-Star rosters for each league this afternoon during an hour-long special on TBS. We’ll update this post as the names come in: The 2012 MLB All-Star Game is next Tuesday, July 10, at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri.

  8. Hiroki Kuroda strikes out 11 in win over White Sox

    Jun 30, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    Hiroki Kuroda Getty

    Who needs CC Sabathia and Andy Pettitte, anyway? OK, well the Yankees do if they hope to go anywhere. But Hiroki Kuroda is holding things down quite nicely at the moment. Kuroda was dominant this afternoon, allowing just three hits over seven shutout innings as part of a 4-0 win over the White Sox. He…

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

    Jun 29, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Pittsburgh Pirates

    Pirates 5, Phillies 4: All of you who predicted that A.J. Burnett was going to rattle off eight straight wins at some point this year, please cut it out because you’re lying. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m gonna go piss off a bunch of Yankees fans by suggesting that Brian Cashman should trade for…

  10. Where did all of the doubles go?

    Jun 28, 2012, 6:18 PM EDT

    Does this look like a doubles swing to you?

    It’s still early enough to turn around, but there are a lot of hitters this year with many more homers than doubles: Jose Bautista – 25 HR, 9 2B Adam Dunn – 24 HR, 10 2B Curtis Granderson – 21 HR, 9 2B Carlos Beltran – 20 HR, 9 2B Dayan Viciedo – 13 HR,…

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

    Jun 28, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Dodgers v San Francisco Giants

    Giants 3, Dodgers 0: The season nadir for the Dodgers who got swept by their arch rivals in three straight shutouts and lost their lead in the division. And, to add insult to injury, Andre Ethier got hurt. Wait, that’s adding injury to insult I suppose. Ah, you know what I mean. Oh, and Timmay…

  12. Will Ohman finishes White Sox win, gets let go

    Jun 27, 2012, 5:08 PM EDT

    Will Ohman

    Up 12-2 against the Twins in the eighth inning today, the White Sox went to Will Ohman to finish the game off. Six outs and three runs later, he was sent packing by the club. CSNChicago.com’s Dan Hayes reports that Ohman was designated for assignment immediately after Wednesday’s game. Ohman ended the day with a…

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

    Jun 27, 2012, 6:15 AM EDT

    arroyo getty

    Reds 4, Brewers 3: Bronson Arroyo had a no-hitter through seven and then ended up with a no-decision. Guess that happens when you ask a starter who usually throws less than seven innings a start to go eight, eh?  Still a nice game until that eighth, and a win for the Redlegs. Giants 2, Dodgers…

  14. Kosuke Fukudome released by White Sox

    Jun 26, 2012, 5:27 PM EDT

    White Sox pinch hitter Fukudome hits into an out in the ninth inning against the Boston Red Sox during their MLB baseball game in Chicago

    No other teams claimed him off waivers and the White Sox couldn’t find a taker via trade, so they released Kosuke Fukudome today after designating him for assignment last week. Fukudome played sparingly and poorly after signing a one-year, $1 million deal as a free agent and was on the disabled list with a back…

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

    Jun 26, 2012, 6:10 AM EDT

    Kevin Youkilis

    Twins 4, White Sox 1: Kevin Youkilis made his Chisox debut and went one for four in a loss and gave us this odd picture of him in a White Sox uniform. Adam Dunn went 0 for 4 and struck out four times, but the list of things he gives less of a crap about…

  16. How much longer will the Rangers hit Michael Young fifth?

    Jun 25, 2012, 6:56 PM EDT

    Michael Young

    There are 178 players with at least 150 plate appearances against right-handed pitching this season. Michael Young ranks 172nd in the group in OPS: 169. Rickie Weeks (Mil): .580 170. Sean Rodriguez (TB): .576 171. Danny Espinosa (Was): .575 172. Michael Young (Tex): .566 173. Jamey Carroll (Min): .565 174. Orlando Hudson (SD/ChW): .562 175.…

  17. Kevin Youkilis starts off hitting second for White Sox

    Jun 25, 2012, 6:05 PM EDT

    Kevin Youkilis

    White Sox No. 2 hitters have batted a pathetic .215/.265/.323 this season. He won’t have to be the old Kevin Youkilis to improve on that. White Sox manager Robin Ventura will ask Youkilis to help set the table for Adam Dunn and Paul Konerko following his acquisition from the Red Sox on Sunday. Here’s the…

  18. The final AL All-Star balloting update before the teams are set

    Jun 25, 2012, 2:49 PM EDT

    All Star Game Logo

    There’s still time to vote, but if it ended now, the AL All-Star team would look like so. The only change to a starter over last week’s results: Robinson Cano taking over first place at second base from Ian Kinsler. Downballot, we see A-Rod passing Evan Longoria for third place at third base, a flip-flop…

    Derek Norris

    I’m back after a week’s vacation. I wrote up a long sappy version of it last week, but here’s the short version: San Diego for five days, during which I took Mookie and Carlo to their first ever major league game to see the Rangers vs. the Padres last Monday night. It was a doubly…

  20. Directionless Red Sox hope for addition by subtraction

    Jun 24, 2012, 7:13 PM EDT

    Kevin Youkilis

    Make no mistake about it: this is a pretty nasty storm the Red Sox have had to weather. The team has already had to use 41 players. The left fielder and the closer have missed the entire season so far. The All-Star center fielder has missed most of it. At one point, the team’s top…

  21. Kevin Youkilis sent to White Sox for Zach Stewart, Brent Lillibridge

    Jun 24, 2012, 5:26 PM EDT

    Kevin Youkilis

    The White Sox announced after Sunday’s game that they’ve acquired Kevin Youkilis from Boston in exchange for right-hander Zach Stewart and utilityman Brent Lillibridge. The Red Sox are also sending $5.5 million in cash to help cover Youkilis’ salary, according to FOXSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal. “I just got off the phone with him, he’s very excited to…

  22. Kevin Youkilis expected to be traded soon

    Jun 23, 2012, 3:52 PM EDT

    Kevin Youkilis Reuters

    UPDATE, 9:35 PM ET: According to Rosenthal, the Indians are now considered a “longshot” to land Youkilis and the Dodgers have only had “minimal contact” with Boston’s front office. It sounds like it might come down to the White Sox and Pirates. 3:52 PM ET: Jim Bowden of ESPN.com and MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM…

  23. Zack Greinke vs. Chris Sale lives up to hype

    Jun 22, 2012, 11:35 PM EDT

    Zack Greinke

    There was a tremendous pitcher’s duel in Chicago tonight, as the Brewers edged the White Sox 1-0 in 10 innings. With the Brewers scoring in the top of the 10th, Zack Greinke was able to get the win. He allowed three hits in nine innings of work. Closer John Axford, who has been very shaky,…

  24. Philip Humber placed on DL after posting 7.47 ERA since perfect game

    Jun 22, 2012, 4:16 PM EDT

    Philip Humber

    Phillip Humber has been a mess since throwing his perfect game on April 21, making 10 starts with a 7.47 ERA, and the White Sox have placed him on the disabled list with a strained elbow. Brian Bruney was called up from Triple-A to take Humber’s place on the roster after posting a 1.85 ERA…

  25. White Sox designate Kosuke Fukudome for assignment

    Jun 22, 2012, 3:45 PM EDT

    White Sox pinch hitter Fukudome hits into an out in the ninth inning against the Boston Red Sox during their MLB baseball game in Chicago

    Kosuke Fukudome seemed like a solid low-risk pickup for the White Sox considering it took only a $1 million commitment compared to the $48 million he earned while being a disappointment on the other side of Chicago, but the outfielder played sparingly and has been designated for assignment. The move comes instead of activating Fukudome…
