Top White Sox News

  • White Sox's Eloy Jimenez: Earns three walks across twin bill

    Jimenez went 0-for-5 with three walks and a run scored across both games of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Royals.

    Jimenez was in the lineup for the first time since being activated from the injured list, and he served as the designated hitter in both contests while batting cleanup. It's also possible that Jimenez will see time in the outfield, though the team may be cautious with his usage given his lengthy injury history.

  • White Sox's Gavin Sheets: Forcing outfield rotation

    Sheets went 1-for-7 with a walk and a solo home run across both games of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Royals.

    Sheets had been serving as the White Sox's primary designated hitter in the absence of Eloy Jimenez, while also picking up some playing time at first base. With Jimenez back in the mix, Sheets started both of Wednesday's games in right field, forcing Andrew Benintendi to the bench in one contest and Robbie Grossman to the bench in the other. It will take some additional time to see how the playing time sorts out in the team's outfield, particularly if Tommy Pham also reaches the big-league roster. For now, it appears that Dominic Fletcher may be the only full-time starter in the outfield.

  • White Sox's Paul DeJong: Five hits in twin bill

    DeJong went 5-for-6 with a walk, a double and a two-run homer across both games of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Royals.

    The veteran shortstop provided Chicago's only runs in Game 1 with a two-run home run during the second inning, and he collected two more singles in the nightcap. DeJong entered the day with a .618 OPS through 13 games this season, but the five-hit barrage raised his season slash line to .275/.293/.600.

  • White Sox's Deivi Garcia: Picks up rare save

    Garcia earned the save in Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader versus Kansas City after allowing a hit and a walk over two scoreless innings.

    Closer Michael Kopech and setup men Jordan Leasure and Steven Wilson all pitched in Wednesday's matinee, and Garcia was called upon for the multi-inning save in Game 2. It's just the second save of Garcia's career, and the scoreless outing brings his ERA down to 7.27 and WHIP to 1.62. The 24-year-old is pitching better of late with four straight scoreless appearances, though he likely has a lot more work to do in order to be in the mix regularly for high-leverage chances.

  • White Sox's Erick Fedde: Collects first victory

    Fedde (1-0) earned the win in Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Royals after he allowed three hits and three walks over 5.2 scoreless innings. He struck out five.

    It's Fedde's first win since Sept. 4, 2022 as he delivered his best start of the season in Wednesday's nightcap. The right-hander generated 30 combined called and swinging strikes and didn't allow a baserunner to reach third base. Through four starts Fedde now has a 3.10 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 19:9 K:BB across 20.1 innings.

  • White Sox's Jared Shuster: Returns to minors

    The White Sox returned Shuster to Triple-A Charlotte on Wednesday.

    Shuster did not make an appearance during Wednesday's doubleheader against Kansas City, and he'll now head back to the minors after being promoted as the 27th man. The 25-year-old lefty owns a 1.42 ERA through 6.1 big-league innings this season but has run into trouble since being demoted to Charlotte.

  • White Sox's Michael Kopech: Takes loss, blown save vs. Royals

    Kopech (0-2) blew the save and ultimately took the loss in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Royals, allowing two runs on two hits while striking out one.

    Called upon to protect a one-run lead in the eighth inning, Kopech gave up a one-out single to Bobby Witt before Salvador Perez launched a two-run homer, sticking Kopech with his first blown save and the loss. The right-hander has already earned a pair of multi-inning saves this season, meaning Kopech is 2-for-3 in save chances this year with a 3.48 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 15:6 K:BB through his first 10.1 innings.

  • White Sox's Jonathan Cannon: Solid in debut

    Cannon did not factor into the decision Wednesday against the Royals, allowing one run on three hits and a walk while striking out three over five innings.

    Cannon turned in a strong effort in his first major-league appearance, holding Kansas City to a lone run in the second inning. The 23-year-old right-hander won't offer high strikeout totals, but he's demonstrated advanced control and an ability to generate groundballs thanks to a sinker that he threw 39 percent of the time in his debut. At this point it's not entirely clear whether Cannon will stick in the rotation.

  • White Sox's Andrew Benintendi: Not starting in second matchup

    Benintendi is not listed amongst the starters for the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Royals.

    Benintendi started in the first game of the twin bill and went 1-for-4 in a 4-2 loss, but he will get a break for the second contest. The 29-year-old now has a .175/.224/.190 slash line through 16 games this season.

  • White Sox's Martin Maldonado: Sitting for nightcap

    Maldonado isn't in the White Sox's lineup for the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Royals.

    Maldonado went 0-for-2 with two strikeouts during Game 1, lowering his batting average down to .061. He'll be replaced behind the dish by Korey Lee, who will bat eighth.

  • White Sox's Robbie Grossman: Sitting for Game 1 of twin bill

    Grossman is out of the lineup for the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader with the Royals.

    Grossman had started in the corner outfield and occupied the leadoff spot in each of the previous eight games, reaching base at a .417 clip during that stretch while providing limited counting stats (zero home runs, one stolen base, three runs and one RBI). Given how poorly the White Sox offense as a whole has performed this season, Grossman has probably done enough to retain a near-everyday role, though he could sit more frequently than he had been over the past week after Chicago welcomed Eloy Jimenez back from the injured list Monday. Jimenez will serve as the White Sox's designated hitter in the opening game Wednesday, while Andrew Benintendi and Gavin Sheets start at the corner-outfield spots.

  • White Sox's Paul DeJong: Regaining playing time

    DeJong will start at shortstop and bat sixth in the opening game of Wednesday's doubleheader with the Royals.

    DeJong will stick in the lineup for the fourth time in five games and may have at least temporarily wrested the primary shortstop gig back from Braden Shewmake. The 30-year-old hasn't built up much job security, however, as he enters Wednesday's doubleheader with a .176/.176/.441 slash line and a 44.1 percent strikeout rate over his 34 plate appearances on the season.

  • White Sox's Braden Shewmake: Losing work to DeJong

    Shewmake will start at third base and bat seventh in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader with the Royals.

    Shewmake will crack the lineup for the front end of the twin bill, but he seems to have moved into more of a utility infield role after he initially looked on track to unseat Paul DeJong as the team's primary shortstop. DeJong will cover shortstop for the fourth time in five games in Wednesday's opening contest.

  • White Sox's Lenyn Sosa: Sitting for first game of twin bill

    Sosa is out of the lineup for the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader with the Royals.

    Sosa will likely start in the second game of the twin bill, but he'll give way to Braden Shewmake at third base in the opening contest of the day. Since Yoan Moncada (adductor) was placed on the injured list earlier this month, Sosa has settled in as Chicago's primary option at the hot corner. He had started each of the White Sox's last six games, going 3-for-23 with a pair of doubles, a walk, an RBI and two runs.

  • White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Headed to Arizona for rehab

    Moncada (adductor) plans to head to extended spring training in the coming days to continue his rehab, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

    Moncada is just over a week removed from suffering a left adductor strain but is already feeling much better. The process will be deliberate, though, as he's on the 60-day injured list and isn't expected to return to action until around the All-Star break.

  • White Sox's Jared Shuster: Back as 27th man for doubleheader

    The White Sox recalled Shuster from Triple-A Charlotte on Wednesday.

    Shuster was just optioned Tuesday, but he's back a day later to serve as the 27th man for Wednesday's doubleheader against the Royals. The left-hander is a good bet to eat some innings either in the first game or second game of the twin bill.
