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

    Jun 25, 2012, 2:49 PM EDT

    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…

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

    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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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,…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. Mike Trout is now qualified for the batting title, ranks second

    Jun 21, 2012, 2:24 PM EDT

    Mike Trout Getty

    Not only did Mike Trout go 6-for-9 with two doubles and four runs in back-to-back wins over the Giants the past two nights, in doing so he logged enough plate appearances to qualify for the batting title (and other leaderboards). Trout, who spent the first three weeks of the season at Triple-A, now ranks second…

  10. White Sox-Cubs drama: Alejandro De Aza thinks Manny Corpas hit him on purpose

    Jun 21, 2012, 11:19 AM EDT

    De-Aza_Alejandro

    White Sox outfielder Alejandro De Aza and Cubs reliever Manny Corpas are off-field friends, but that didn’t stop them from creating some drama in the Chicago interleague series yesterday. With the White Sox up 7-0 in the eighth inning Corpas came into the game and plunked De Aza on the leg with his first pitch,…

  11. John Danks diagnosed with torn shoulder muscle

    Jun 19, 2012, 12:16 PM EDT

    john danks ap

    Last week John Danks had his shoulder injury examined by Dr. James Andrews and said the visit involved “no bad news,” but another opinion from the White Sox medical staff apparently showed otherwise. Scott Powers of ESPN Chicago reports that Danks has been diagnosed with a torn subscapularis muscle in his left shoulder. The good…

  12. Josh Hamilton out of the lineup again Monday following intestinal virus

    Jun 18, 2012, 7:30 PM EDT

    Josh Hamilton Getty

    Josh Hamilton will miss his fourth straight game tonight after being hospitalized Friday with an intestinal virus. The good news, at least for the Rangers, is that he appears to be close to returning. Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that Hamilton participated in an early workout this afternoon, which included shagging flyballs…

  13. AL All-Star balloting update: Jose Bautista joins the leaders

    Jun 18, 2012, 6:18 PM EDT

    Jose Bautista

    The latest American League ballot totals are in and the red-hot Jose Bautista has moved into third place in the outfielder voting, with Nelson Cruz dropping out of the lineup to fifth place. Bautista had the AL’s highest vote total last year, but his slow start guarantees he won’t duplicate that feat this year. Instead, it looks…

  14. John Danks checks out fine after visit with Dr. Lewis Yocum

    Jun 16, 2012, 10:08 PM EDT

    john danks ap

    White Sox left-hander John Danks felt renewed discomfort in his throwing shoulder after making a start last week at Triple-A Charlotte, but a visit with Dr. Lewis Yocum this weekend turned up “no bad news” and the starter should be cleared to resume his rehab work at some point in the near future. This via…

  15. Settling the Score: Friday’s results

    Jun 16, 2012, 8:55 AM EDT

    James Loney, A.J. Pierzynski, Matt Thornton AP

    Last night’s matchup between Clayton Kershaw and Chris Sale had all the makings of a classic pitchers’ duel. But as it often happens in this game, things didn’t exactly turn out as expected. Adam Dunn set the tone early by slugging a two-run homer off Kershaw in the top of the first inning. It was…

  16. What to watch tonight: Clayton Kershaw vs. Chris Sale, with Vin Scully on the mic

    Jun 15, 2012, 2:48 PM EDT

    What-to-Watch

    Sure, some people think going out on a Friday night sounds like fun, but I’m here to offer a far more exciting alternative (assuming you have the MLB Extra Innings package or MLB.tv): Clayton Kershaw versus Chris Sale. Not only are two of the best young pitchers in baseball facing off in some late-night, interleague,…

  17. Baseball’s hottest hitter? Would you believe Trevor Plouffe?

    Jun 15, 2012, 11:19 AM EDT

    Trevor Plouffe

    Trevor Plouffe was hitting .133 on May 14 and the 26-year-old former first-round pick had a .212 batting average for his career, which along with the Twins not trusting him to play shortstop had him in danger of potentially being designated for assignment. Instead he’s been the hottest hitter in baseball since then. Seriously. Plouffe…

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

    Jun 15, 2012, 5:40 AM EDT

    Dusty Baker, Brandon Phillips

    Reds 12, Indians 5: One in a bunch of lopsided Thursday games. Brandon Phillips simply abuses Indians pitching as a rule and he did so again yesterday, driving in four. And he likes it too. He said after the game: “Deep down, it feels good to beat up on the Tribe.” Michael Brantley extended his hitting…

  19. Flawless: Matt Cain throws a perfect game versus Astros

    Jun 14, 2012, 1:08 AM EDT

    Matt Cain

    Matt Cain turned in one of the most dominant performances in recent memory Wednesday night, going 27 up and 27 down against the Astros for the 22nd perfect game in MLB history. Cain was overpowering with 14 strikeouts, which ties Sandy Koufax for the most ever in a perfect game. And the Giants right-hander also…

  20. Adam Dunn scratched Wednesday due to slight ankle sprain

    Jun 13, 2012, 8:02 PM EDT

    adam dunn getty

    From Mark D. Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune comes word that slugger Adam Dunn has been scratched from Wednesday night’s game against the Cardinals due to a “slightly” sprained left ankle. It’s obviously not a serious injury, but Dunn seems likely to remain sidelined for Thursday’s series finale in St. Louis given that the DH…

  21. Men’s Journal survey: A.J. Pierzynski is baseball’s most hated player. Philly has the most obnoxious fans

    Jun 13, 2012, 10:00 AM EDT

    Barrett Pierzynski Getty

    Men’s Journal didn’t exactly get a scientific sample, but they did survey 100 ballplayers to find out who the most hated man in baseball is. Because he always tops such lists you will not be surprised to learn that A.J. Pierzynski tops this one too: In a Men’s Journal survey of 100 Major League Baseball players, White…

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

    Jun 13, 2012, 6:02 AM EDT

    Kansas City's Mendoza delivers a pitch against Milwaukee in their MLB baseball game in Kansas City

    Royals 2, Brewers 1: Luis Mendoza took a no-hitter into the seventh, but it was still close as prodigal Royal Zack Greinke was pretty sharp too, striking out eight and allowing one run over seven innings. Billy Butler‘s RBI single in the eighth was the difference. White Sox 6, Cardinals 1: Paul Konerko is batting…

  23. AL All-Star voting updates

    Jun 11, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    All Star Game Logo

    The league just announced the latest in the All-Star Game voting for the American League. Here’s where it stands. The only particularly close race right now is for the third outfield slot, which is a three-way deal between Nelson Cruz, Jose Bautista and Adam Jones. Catcher Mike Napoli: 1,640,160 Joe Mauer: 912,997 First Base Prince…

  24. Philip Humber, April’s Mr. Perfect, could soon be bullpen bound

    Jun 10, 2012, 6:35 PM EDT

    Philip Humber

    Philip Humber‘s rotation spot will likely be up for grabs with one more bad outing. After the right-hander gave up six runs — five earned — and three homers in 5 1/3 innings in a loss to the Astros on Sunday, manager Robin Ventura said that Humber would make one more start, but declined to…

  25. Chris Sale throws eight shutout innings, lowers ERA to 2.05

    Jun 9, 2012, 8:15 PM EDT

    chris sale getty

    We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: White Sox starter Chris Sale needs his own video game. The lanky left-hander threw eight innings of shutout ball on Saturday afternoon against the Astros, striking out seven and walking none as the Pale Hose rolled to a 10-1 victory. He now has a 0.92 WHIP,…
