    Joe Mauer broke up Anibal Sanchez’s no-hit bid last night with a one-out single in the ninth inning. He has made a habit out of spoiling history. Last night was the third time in Mauer’s career that he has broken up a no-hit bid in the ninth inning. He previously did it in on May…

    May 6, 2013, 3:25 PM EDT

    Gavin Floyd

    Gavin Floyd got a bunch of different opinions on his elbow injury, but the end result is the same: He’ll undergo Tommy John surgery. And because he has a torn flexor muscle in addition to a torn ulnar collateral ligament the White Sox announced that Floyd is expected to miss 14-19 months, which is longer…

    May 2, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    Jake Peavy

    Hector Santiago was supposed to start in place of the injured Gavin Floyd tomorrow, but instead he’ll be needed tonight after the White Sox scratched Jake Peavy from his scheduled start with back spasms. Peavy was off to a very strong start with a 3.38 ERA and 39/6 K/BB ratio in 32 innings, building on…

    Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com reports that White Sox right-hander Gavin Floyd “will get multiple opinions on the severity of his injury” after being placed on the disabled list with a strained elbow.

  13. Jeff Keppinger for $12 million is a bit of a reach

    Dec 5, 2012, 2:17 PM EDT

    Jeff Keppinger

    Obviously, it’s a good idea not to give three-year contracts to part-time players unless you have to. Unfortunately, in this winter’s free agent market, the White Sox felt they had to. Jeff Keppinger probably had multiple teams interested in him at $8 million for two years, so the first team to go to $12 million…

  14. Gavin Floyd may not be long for Chicago with White Sox open to trading starting pitching

    Nov 5, 2012, 12:46 PM EDT

    Gavin Floyd Getty

    After picking up Gavin Floyd‘s option and signing Jake Peavy to a two-year contract the White Sox have more rotation depth than most teams and new general manager Rick Hahn is hinting that he might shop a starting pitcher for help in other areas. “I suspect given this market for pitchers that is out there…

  15. John Danks ahead of schedule in recovery from surgery

    Nov 1, 2012, 12:16 PM EDT

    John Danks

    By bringing back Jake Peavy and Gavin Floyd the White Sox now have five starters in place even with John Danks out following shoulder surgery. However, it sounds like Danks might be back on the mound sooner than initially expected. Dan Hayes of CSNChicago.com reports that Danks has already started a throwing program three months…

  16. White Sox sign Jake Peavy to $29 million contract, decline Kevin Youkilis’ option

    Oct 30, 2012, 6:16 PM EDT

    Jake Peavy

    The White Sox’s 2013 rotation is set to look a whole lot like the 2012 group after all.

    Sep 28, 2012, 11:31 PM EDT

    Alex Rios

    The White Sox still aren’t hitting. Fortunately, Gavin Floyd and the bullpen were good enough to overcome that for one night. Floyd allowed one run over five innings and combined with five relievers on a three-hitter Friday in a 3-1 win over the Rays. The White Sox moved to within one within one game of…

  18. Francisco Liriano is out of the White Sox rotation for now

    Sep 12, 2012, 4:05 PM EDT

    Francisco Liriano

    When the White Sox bumped Francisco Liriano from his start tonight in favor of Gavin Floyd, it was supposed to be a two-day move, with Liriano possibly pitching out of the pen against the Tigers and then starting Friday against the Twins. That plan is out the window now. The White Sox announced that they’d…

  19. White Sox pick Gavin Floyd over Francisco Liriano versus Tigers

    Sep 10, 2012, 6:42 PM EDT

    Gavin Floyd

The change pushes Francisco Liriano back to Friday, when he’ll face the Twins. By making the move, the White Sox…

    Sep 7, 2012, 12:10 PM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    Here’s the top 50 of a rather weak free agent class. Again, I didn’t include Robinson Cano, R.A. Dickey and some others whose options are sure to be picked up. Also absent is Mark Reynolds. He is not eligible for free agency, though there’s a good chance he’ll be non-tendered this winter. All ages are…

  23. Red Sox could seek out big-name targets this winter

    Aug 25, 2012, 4:22 PM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    The Red Sox have had an average payroll in excess of $170 million the last three years. With Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford and Josh Beckett departing and David Ortiz, Daisuke Matsuzaka and Cody Ross all set to become free agents, they’re currently looking at something less than half of that for 2013. It figures to give…
