    Aug 9, 2012, 8:23 AM EDT

    Minnesota Twins v Chicago White Sox

    Paul Konerko missed yesterday’s game. Originally Robin Ventura said it was due to general soreness. After the game, though, the story was different: Afterward, Ventura said Konerko had a mild concussion and needs further evaluation on Friday. Ventura didn’t dismiss the possibility for Konerko to go on the seven-day DL. Konerko is hitting .316/.388/.504 with 18…

  2. Matt Cain hasn’t been himself since throwing perfect game

    Aug 7, 2012, 12:48 PM EDT

    Matt Cain, Buster Posey

    He hasn’t reached Philip Humber territory in terms of struggling after throwing a perfect game, but Matt Cain has a 4.40 ERA since making history on June 14 and the Giants have lost six of his nine starts during that time. Cain has a strong 46/16 K/BB ratio in 57 innings over that nine-start stretch,…

  3. White Sox demote Philip Humber to bullpen three months after perfect game

    Aug 7, 2012, 11:19 AM EDT

    AP Phil Humber

    Philip Humber has struggled mightily since throwing a perfect game on April 21, posting a 7.21 ERA in 14 starts while spending some time on the disabled list, and the White Sox have decided to demote him to the bullpen while ditching their brief six-man rotation. Humber took the demotion in stride, mostly because he…

  4. Chris Sale benefits from the extra rest

    Aug 7, 2012, 10:00 AM EDT

    Chris Sale

    Chris Sale‘s velocity was down, he had a couple of bad starts and there was talk of the dreaded “dead arm.” But after some extra time off, Sale came roaring back last night. From CSNChicago.com: After hovering around 90 mph July 27 in Texas, concerns about Sale’s drop in velocity evaporated as the 23-year-old was…

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

    Aug 7, 2012, 6:10 AM EDT

    New York Yankees v Detroit Tigers

    Tigers 7, Yankees 2: Justin Verlander was amazing, striking out 14. I’m not sure why Jim Leyland kept him in there for 132 pitches given that the Tigers had a five run lead by the sixth inning, but I guess the fans liked it. And heck, he was still throwing 100 miles per hour, so…

  6. Should Bobby Valentine be fired? Red Sox owner responds

    Aug 6, 2012, 6:44 PM EDT

    Bobby Valentine

    Red Sox owner John Henry answered the calls for Bobby Valentine’s dismissal with an email sent to WEEI’s Rob Bradford and others Monday: I’ve gotten questions about Bobby and about ownership from you so I’ll say the following on the record. To blame Bobby Valentine for the Red Sox being .500 at this point in…

  7. John Danks had his shoulder surgery

    Aug 6, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    John Danks

    The White Sox announced that John Danks had his surgery today. And you’re not gonna believe this, but it was a success. In White Sox speak, Danks underwent sugery to “arthroscopically repair a capsular tear & minor debridements of the rotator cuff and biceps in his left shoulder.” Which sounds kinda icky, but the good…

  8. Angels protest of Friday night’s game denied

    Aug 6, 2012, 2:30 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim v Chicago White Sox

    The Angels lodged a formal protest of Friday night’s game against the White Sox. The basis for the protest: In the first inning of the game, Paul Konerko hit a grounder to third with the bases loaded and no outs. Alberto Callaspo started what was to be a 5-2-3 double play. He went home with…

  9. A.J. Pierzynski homers in fifth straight as White Sox win

    Aug 5, 2012, 5:55 PM EDT

    A.J. Pierzynski

    A.J. Pierzynski didn’t start Sunday, but it didn’t stop him from hitting his 21st homer as the White Sox beat the Angels 4-2. Pinch-hitting for Tyler Flowers, Pierzynski hit a tie-breaking two-run homer off Jason Isringhausen in the bottom of the seventh. It was his fifth straight game with a homer, matching a White Sox…

  10. White Sox don’t plan on exercising Youk’s $13 million option

    Aug 5, 2012, 12:15 PM EDT

    Kevin Youkilis

    Kevin Youkilis has posted an .864 OPS with eight home runs and 25 RBI in 33 games since joining the White Sox. They love him, but that love has limits. A White Sox official told Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe this weekend that the club is unlikely to exercise Youk’s $13 million club option for the…

  11. Francisco Liriano fans eight Twins in White Sox debut

    Jul 31, 2012, 11:41 PM EDT

    Francisco Liriano

    Pitching against his old team in his first start for his new one, Francisco Liriano allowed two runs in six innings and struck out eight as the White Sox beat the Twins 4-3 on Tuesday. The game was tied 2-2 after the top of the seventh, so Liriano didn’t factor into the decision. The White…

  12. Tales of Feliz, Bard figure to scare off future starting conversions

    Jul 31, 2012, 6:51 PM EDT

    Aroldis Chapman

    If the Reds were still thinking of putting Aroldis Chapman into the rotation next year, today’s announcement will surely give them pause. Former Rangers closer Neftali Feliz will undergo Tommy John surgery and miss most or all of 2013 after being diagnosed with a torn UCL in his elbow. It means two of this year’s…

  13. John Danks needs shoulder surgery, out for season

    Jul 31, 2012, 6:35 PM EDT

    John Danks

    John Danks, who has spent the last month and a half on the disabled list with shoulder soreness, will undergo exploratory surgery and miss the rest of the season. His status for 2013 won’t be known until after the surgery. Danks’ name came up in trade rumors after last season, but the White Sox felt…

    Lets make a deal

    The 2012 non-waiver trade deadline has come and gone. Here’s your summary of who went where and for whom: 7/31/12: The Indians Acquire 1B Lars Anderson from the Red Sox for RHP Steven Wright.

  15. Royals phenom Wil Myers hits 31st, 32nd homers in minors

    Jul 31, 2012, 2:20 PM EDT

    Wil Myers

    Wil Myers reclaimed the professional lead in homers from Adam Dunn on Monday, smacking his 31st and 32nd homers in Triple-A Omaha’s game against Oklahoma City. The 21-year-old Myers has gone 7-for-12 with three homers, eight RBI and four walks in the series versus Oklahoma City. He’s hitting .294/.380/.596 with 19 homers in 255 at-bats…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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…

  21. 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…

    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…

  24. 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…

  25. 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…
