  1. AL All-Star voting updates

    Jun 11, 2012, 4:00 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jun 10, 2012, 6:35 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jun 9, 2012, 8:15 PM EST

    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,…

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

    Jun 8, 2012, 5:50 AM EST

    Norichika Aoki

    Brewers 4, Cubs 3: Norichika Aoki hit two homers including the walkoff. Overall, he’s kicking some major butt. Mets 3, Nationals 1: As I said yesterday: Dickey beats Wang. I’m still giggling, by the way. Pirates 5, Reds 4: Aroldis Chapman finally allowed a run. You see? You see? He’s not a machine, he’s a man, he’s a man!  Someone alert…

  5. White Sox place Kosuke Fukudome on DL, call up John Danks’ brother Jordan Danks

    Jun 7, 2012, 2:48 PM EST

    jordan danks white sox

    Kosuke Fukudome needs a disabled list stint for his injured rib cage and the White Sox have called up Jordan Danks to replace him. In addition to being a 25-year-old outfield prospect Jordan Danks is also the little brother of White Sox left-hander John Danks. Jordan has mostly been a disappointment since the White Sox…

  6. Paul Konerko’s wrist procedure wasn’t any fun

    Jun 6, 2012, 6:41 PM EST

    Paul Konerko

    Paul Konerko is sitting out his third straight game tonight, but hopes to be back Thursday or Friday. That’s pretty impressive, considering what he went through on Tuesday. Doctors didn’t actually remove it, though… they just flushed it into a different area in which it wouldn’t cause as many problems. An actual surgery to remove…

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

    Jun 6, 2012, 6:51 AM EST

    Bryce Harper

    Nationals 7, Mets 6: The legend of Bryce Harper grows. A game-winning hit in the 12th inning. What say you, Harper? “I’m happy to get the W, of course. I’m happy to get that walk-off hit, but I don’t like going 2 for 7,” Harper said. “I don’t like striking out twice in one game,…

  8. Jarrod Parker’s no-hit bid broken up in the eighth inning

    Jun 5, 2012, 12:28 AM EST

    Jarrod Parker AP

    UPDATE: Parker is done after eight shutout innings. He gave up just the one hit while throwing 69 out of 111 pitches for strikes and now owns a 2.40 ERA over his first eight starts with Oakland. If everything pans out the way the A’s hope, he’ll have many more chances at a no-no in…

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

    Jun 4, 2012, 5:40 AM EST

    New York Yankees v Detroit Tigers

    Yankees 5, Tigers 1: If I were to tell you that one of this game’s starting pitchers — Justin Verlander or Phil Hughes — was going to toss a complete game, I’m guessing none of you would have guessed it would be Hughes.  But that he did, allowing one run on four hits. Verlander loses…

  10. You’re not gonna believe this, but Mike Trout and Bryce Harper were MLB Rookies of the Month

    Jun 3, 2012, 2:10 PM EST

    Mike Trout Getty

    Get used to this. From a bevy of MLB press releases that just filled my inbox: Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim outfielder Mike Trout has been voted American League Rookie of the Month for May … Bryce Harper has been voted National League Rookie of the Month for May. Trout hit .324 (35-for-108) with six doubles, two triples,…

  11. Ichiro hit two homers yesterday

    Jun 3, 2012, 9:00 AM EST

    Ichiro Suzuki

    Ichiro is not a power hitter. He has just 98 homers in his career. Two of them came last night, however, as he hit two solo shots off Gavin Floyd to help the M’s — who suddenly have a ton of offense — beat the White Sox 10-8. Ichiro, who was recently moved to the…

  12. Joe Maddon: people throw at us intentionally; we never do it

    May 31, 2012, 10:30 AM EST

    Joe Maddon Getty

    A commenter said yesterday that Joe Maddon often accuses other teams of throwing at his players but that he has never even once hinted that the Rays do the same. Here he was on a radio show yesterday talking about the Red Sox doing just that — and the Red Sox doing nothing — over…

  13. Hawk Harrelson goes crazy

    May 30, 2012, 5:02 PM EST

    hawk harrelson

    In today’s Rays-White Sox game, A.J. Pierzynski got plunked. Later, be it by coincidence or not, Jose Quintana threw one at Ben Zobrist and was immediately ejected by umpire Mark Wegner. Then White Sox announcer Hawk Harrelson went crazy: UPDATE: MLB pulled the You Tube video, but they have it over at MLB.com, with complete Hawk…

  14. White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper thinks you should shut up about pitch counts

    May 30, 2012, 10:47 AM EST

    Don Cooper

    Chris Sale throwing 115 pitches in his dominant, 15-strikeout start Monday has led to some talk about whether the White Sox were smart to let him stay in the game that long considering it was his ninth career start and came just weeks after temporarily shifting him to the bullpen amid elbow problems. White Sox…

  15. R.A. Dickey, Paul Konerko named players of the week

    May 29, 2012, 5:03 PM EST

    Minnesota Twins v Chicago White Sox

    The Player of the Week Awards came out, and the winners are R.A. Dickey in the NL and Paul Konerko in the AL. Dickey was 2-0 in two starts, striking out 21 batters and allowing a single earned run in 14 and a third innings pitched for a 0.63 ERA for the week. No surprise at all…

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

    May 29, 2012, 5:47 AM EST

    Chicago White Sox  v Tampa Bay Rays

    White Sox 2, Rays 1: Chris Sale: 15Ks and three hits in seven and a third. Adam Dunn hit a two-run homer. Red Sox 7, Tigers 4: Jim Leyland said that we saw what we saw and should write what we saw, so let’s do that: The Red Sox’ second inning rally never should have happened…

  17. Chris Sale strikes out 15 in win over Rays

    May 28, 2012, 5:58 PM EST

    Chris Sale

    Making his first ever start in Florida, Lakeland native Chris Sale struck out 15 batters while limiting the Rays to one run and three hits in 7 1/3 innings in the White Sox’s 2-1 victory Monday. An Adam Dunn homer, his 16th of the year, was responsible for both White Sox runs. Sale, a first-round…

  18. Paul Konerko hitting .466 with 6 homers in his last 20 games

    May 28, 2012, 4:16 PM EST

    Minnesota Twins v Chicago White Sox

    Paul Konerko is on a ridiculous tear right now, hitting .466 with six homers and a 1.303 OPS in his last 20 games dating back to May 4. Even more amazing is that sitting out three days in the middle of that stretch after taking a Jeff Samardzija pitch to the face didn’t slow him…

  19. A.J. Ellis: All-Star?

    May 27, 2012, 10:48 AM EST

    aj ellis ap

    The Dodgers picked up their MLB-best 31st victory on Saturday when catcher A.J. Ellis hit a walkoff three-run shot against the Astros’ Wesley Wright. The heroics are nothing new this year for Ellis. A 31-year-old former 18th-round pick, he’s batting .317/.442/.517 with five home runs, seven doubles and 23 RBI through 149 plate appearances. And…

  20. Indians to place Carlos Santana on 7-day concussion disabled list

    May 26, 2012, 2:34 PM EST

    Carlos Santana Getty

    The first-place Indians will have to get by without another important piece of their lineup. Nick Camino of WTAM in Cleveland reports that the Indians will place Carlos Santana on MLB’s seven-day disabled list for concussions. The 26-year-old backstop left last night’s game in the eighth inning after a foul ball off Alex Rios‘ bat…

  21. Josh Hamilton homers for first time since May 12

    May 25, 2012, 9:35 PM EST

    Josh Hamilton AP

    Josh Hamilton‘s home run drought is finally over. And yes, I write that with tongue firmly planted in cheek. After Aaron mentioned this morning that Hamilton hadn’t homered in nearly two weeks, the Rangers’ slugger went deep in the bottom of the second inning tonight against the Blue Jays. His solo shot off right-hander Carlos…

    Angel Pagan

    Giants 14, Marlins 7: There have been times over the past couple of years when the Giants wouldn’t score 14 in a week. And when he played in New York and Atlanta, there were weeks when Melky Cabrera wouldn’t drive in four, but here we are. Angel Pagan did the same. The Marlins bullpen gave…

  23. John Danks goes on disabled list with sore shoulder

    May 24, 2012, 6:36 PM EST

    John Danks

    White Sox southpaw John Danks is coming off his best start of the year, an outing in which he blanked the Cubs for 6 1/3 innings, but now he’s going on the disabled list due to shoulder soreness. The move is coming even though Danks thought he would have been fine to pitch Friday. Jose…

  24. Robin Ventura finally names a closer and it’s Addison Reed

    May 24, 2012, 10:15 AM EST

    Chicago White Sox v Detroit Tigers

    For months Robin Ventura has played coy about the White Sox’s closer role, refusing to give anyone that title, but yesterday he finally relented and made official what has been obvious: The job belongs to rookie Addison Reed. “He’s earned that,” Ventura told Scott Powers of ESPN Chicago. “I feel comfortable with him in there.…

    Kansas City Royals v New York Yankees

    Yankees 8, Royals 3: Alex Rodriguez would like the New York sporting press to write more career obituaries for him. It seems to suit him nicely (2 for 4, 2 HR, 3 RBI). Reds 2, Braves 1: Todd Frazier hit a walkoff homer. It came off  Cristhian Martinez because, as everyone knows, Fredi Gonzalez would be drummed…
