  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. Gavin Floyd scratched from tonight’s start with elbow injury

    Jul 16, 2012, 3:15 PM EDT

    Gavin Floyd

    Gavin Floyd won’t make his scheduled start tonight against the Red Sox because of forearm and elbow soreness, but Scott Powers of ESPN Chicago reports that an MRI exam showed no structural damage and for now at least he’ll remain on the active roster. Dylan Axelrod will make the spot start in place of Floyd…

  5. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 16, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Ben Sheets

    Braves 6, Mets 1: Ben Sheets emerges from the restorative chemical waters of the Lazarus Pits to throw six shutout innings against the Mets. Too bad this series is over. I heard the Braves were going to run Rich Harden out there tonight and maybe Mark Prior on Tuesday to see if the Mets are just as prone…

  6. Adrian Gonzalez hurt his back being nice to a kid

    Jul 14, 2012, 8:03 PM EDT

    Adrian Gonzalez

    Maybe the Red Sox can add fraternizing with children to the ban list. Adrian Gonzalez is sitting out a second straight game Saturday because of a sore back, the cause of which finally came to light today. According to the first baseman, Gonzalez was at the mall Friday afternoon when he “ran into a family with…

  7. Francisco Liriano becomes 30th ever to fan 15 and lose

    Jul 13, 2012, 11:35 PM EDT

    Francisco Liriano

    Francisco Liriano whiffed a career-high 15 batters on Friday night, but he still took a loss in a 6-3 game after giving up four runs — three earned — in eight innings against the A’s. Jonny Gomes hit a grand slam in the fourth inning to account for all of the scoring off Liriano. It…

  8. Yankees sign Kosuke Fukudome to minor-league contract

    Jul 13, 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

    Released by the White Sox last month, Kosuke Fukudome has signed a minor-league contract with the Yankees. Marc Carig of the Newark Star Ledger reports that the 35-year-old outfielder will head to Triple-A and try to convince the Yankees he’s worth adding as a bench bat down the stretch. Fukudome obviously never lived up to…

  9. Philip Humber throws six shutout innings in rehab start

    Jul 13, 2012, 12:48 PM EDT

    Philip Humber

    Philip Humber was a mess following his perfect game on April 21, posting a 7.47 ERA in 10 starts before the White Sox finally shut him down with a strained elbow in mid-June. Now he’s on the verge of returning from the disabled list, throwing six innings of shutout, two-hit ball last night at Double-A…

  10. What to watch for in tonight’s All-Star Game

    Jul 10, 2012, 4:22 PM EDT

    Mike Trout

    Tonight’s 83rd Major League Baseball All-Star Game will officially open with Detroit’s Justin Verlander throwing to Colorado’s Carlos Gonzalez. Still, my favorite part will take place before that. The Midsummer Classic isn’t the must-see event it was before Baseball Tonight, MLB Extra Innings and MLB.tv made seeing the league’s stars in action so much easier.…

  11. The worst of the worst at the All-Star break

    Jul 9, 2012, 6:26 PM EDT

    Tim Lincecum

    Because the non-All-Stars deserve recognition too — even when they’d prefer to hide their faces — here’s a look at some midpoint leaderboards in reverse order. OPS 1. Dee Gordon (SS LAD): .562 2. Cliff Pennington (SS Oak): .563 3. Cameron Maybin (CF SD): .596 4. Jamey Carroll (INF Min): .597 5. Justin Smoak (1B…

  12. C.J. Wilson scratched from All-Star Game, replaced by Jake Peavy

    Jul 8, 2012, 5:38 PM EDT

    C.J. Wilson

    Angels left-hander C.J. Wilson won’t take part in Tuesday’s All-Star Game in Kansas City because of a blister on his middle finger, and the White Sox just announced that Jake Peavy has replaced him on the American League roster. Peavy was the obvious choice to step in for any AL pitcher. The right-hander ranks fifth…

  13. Pedro Ciriaco saves Boston’s bacon in 9-5 win

    Jul 8, 2012, 12:45 AM EDT

    Pedro Ciriaco

    Pedro Ciriaco is so good he even collects hits after the game ends. Making his Red Sox debut Saturday, Ciriaco went 4-for-5 with four RBI in Boston’s 9-5 win over the Yankees in the second game of a doubleheader. His performance caused the Fenway faithful to bring back the “Pedro” chant for the first time…

  14. White Sox add first-round bust Daniel Moskos on waivers

    Jul 6, 2012, 6:03 PM EDT

    Daniel Moskos

    The Pirates made Daniel Moskos the fourth overall pick in the 2007 draft, selecting him ahead of Matt Wieters, Jarrod Parker, Madison Bumgarner and Jason Heyward, among others. Five years and 24 1/3 major league innings later, he’s now a member of the White Sox organization after being claimed off waivers. The selection of Moskos…

  15. 2012 midseason awards: AL MVP

    Jul 6, 2012, 5:41 PM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    Josh Hamilton was far and away the AL’s best player for two months, but he’s definitely come back to the pack after hitting just .223 with four homers in June. He struck out 35 times last month, nearly matching his total of 39 times from April and May combined. That said, he still leads the…

  16. 2012 midseason awards: AL Cy Young

    Jul 5, 2012, 3:53 PM EDT

    Chris Sale

    The AL Cy Young balloting turned into a rout last year, as Justin Verlander lapped the field on his way to taking league MVP honors. At the midway point, this year’s Cy is still very much in doubt. Here’s the league top 10 in ERA: Jered Weaver (LAA): 9-1, 2.13 ERA, 68/21 K/BB in 88…

  17. A.J. Pierzynski speaks about his reputation as a clubhouse cancer and overall jerkface

    Jul 5, 2012, 2:30 PM EDT

    Barrett Pierzynski Getty

    A.J. Pierzynski has a reputation as a clubhouse cancer. That’s not just some broad opinion. One of his teammates on the San Francisco Giants actually called him a cancer back in 2004.  Apart from that, he’s always at the top of “most hated” lists and stuff. But Pierzynski wants to set the record straight: “Basically…

  18. Kevin Youkilis likes his new shade of sox

    Jul 5, 2012, 9:41 AM EDT

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

    Kevin Youkilis is doing just fine with the change of scenery. Last night he singled home Alejandro De Aza in the bottom of the 10th to break a 4-4 and give the White Sox a walkoff win. He finished his night 2-for-4 with a walk. So far since the trade he’s 11 for 36 (.306) with…

  19. Yu Darvish, David Freese lead “Final Vote” balloting

    Jul 4, 2012, 1:16 PM EDT

    Yu Darvish

    With one day remaining in the “Final Vote” contest for All-Star spots Rangers starter Yu Darvish leads the AL balloting and Cardinals third baseman David Freese leads the NL balloting. Braves third baseman Chipper Jones had been leading in the NL, but yesterday he was removed from the “Final Vote” ballot after being named the…

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

    Jul 4, 2012, 6:00 AM EDT

    Chicago Cubs v Atlanta Braves

    Braves 10, Cubs 3: Chipper Jones was named to the All-Star team and then went out and put up a 5-for-5, 4 RBI night. Dude even stole a base. Which is nuts considering he was rejected from the leg transplant list as an unsuitable recipient at least five years ago. Of course I talk about…

  21. The White Sox take out their frustrations on the Rangers

    Jul 3, 2012, 11:46 PM EDT

    A.J. Pierzynski

    A.J. Pierzynski made his displeasure about being snubbed from Ron Washington’s AL All-Star team perfectly clear, and his teammates were none too pleased either. Tonight, the White Sox exacted a little revenge, drubbing the Rangers 19-2. It was the Rangers’ most lopsided defeat during Washington’s term at the helm. In fact, they hadn’t lost so…

  22. 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…

  23. 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…

  24. 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…

  25. 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…
