White Sox Rumors & News

  • Both Rangers' Martins shine in 12-0 win vs White Sox

    Dallas Morning News "It is spring. Leonys Martin is blossoming. For the Rangers offense, which has stagnated for most of the first three weeks of the season, no development could be more important. Not even the continued growth of Martin Perez, who pitched a complete-game 12-0 win over the Chicago White Sox on..." April 19

    News doesn't sound overly encouraging right now on Jones, whose back problem is a little worse than they first imagined per RV

  • Chris Sale has no use for statistics and that’s totally fine

    Yahoo! Sports "When it came time to talk about the tall, skinny kid who threw like nobody else, the debate wasn't much of a debate at all. The Kansas City Royals held the fourth pick in the 2010 draft. The top three picks were gimmes: Bryce Harper, Jameson Taillon and Manny Machado. Where they would go at No. 4..." April 18

  • Lester’s excellence doesn’t go to waste thanks to Red Sox’ 9th-inning rally against White Sox

    WEEI Boston "The Red Sox once again didn’t come away with a bunch of hits Thursday night, but David Ross made sure the one he claimed counted. With one out in the ninth, Ross ripped a double to right field, scoring Mike Napoli and paving the way for a 3-1 win over the White Sox. The Red Sox had entered..." April 18

  • White Sox Designate Donnie Veal For Assignment

    MLB Trade Rumors "The White Sox have designated southpaw Donnie Veal for assignment, tweets MLB.com's Scott Merkin. Zach Putnam had his contract purchased to join the big club, which used every one of its relievers in last night's ballgame. After a strong (albeit brief) 2012 campaign in which he posted a 1.38..." April 17

  • Red Sox outlast White Sox in 14 innings, 6-4

    CSN New England "The Red Sox went 13 innings in between a hit that left the infield Wednesday night. Incredibly, they managed to somehow win. Jackie Bradley Jr. slapped a double down the right field line off utility infielder Leury Garcia, the ninth Chicago White Sox pitcher of the night, sending the Sox to a..." April 17

  • White Sox capitalize on late Red Sox error in 2-1 win

    CSN Chicago "Tuesday night's White Sox-Red Sox game was generally boring, a three-and-a-half hour frigid slog through walks, pitching changes and feeble offensive rallies. And yet the White Sox found a way to make things interesting, defeating the defending World Series champs, 2-1, in walk-off fashion in..." April 16

  • White Sox sign Frank Francisco

    Hardball Talk "Veteran reliever Frank Francisco has signed a minor-league contract with the White Sox. Francisco was slated to be the Mets’ closer last season, but instead elbow problems kept him sidelined until September and he made a total of just eight appearances. He also wasn’t any good for the Mets in..." April 14

  • Alexei Ramirez hits walk-off homer to top Indians

    Chicago Tribune "The White Sox trump card so far this young season is their offensive weaponry, and manager Robin Ventura's crew has been dealing.

  • Felipe Paulino gets a warning from Robin Ventura that he has to step it up

    Chicago Sun-Times "Felipe Paulino’s spot in the rotation is safe for now. But he’ll need to show improvement soon. Paulino had his second consecutive tough outing, allowing six runs and six hits and three walks along with three homers in five innings, but the offense got him a no-decision. It wasn’t able to do..." April 13

  • David Murphy, Ryan Raburn lead Cleveland Indians past White Sox, 12-6

    Cleveland Plain Dealer "Justin Masterson’s ownership of the White Sox is apparently over, but Ryan Raburn still has his name on their lease. That’s a good thing for the Indians, who scrambled to a 12-6 victory Saturday over Chicago at windswept U.S. Cellular Field. Masterson went 4-0 against Chicago last year. Two..." April 13

    Nate Jones is improving but he still doesn't have a timetable for when to throw yet. #WhiteSox

  • White Sox’ bats bail out Chris Sale in victory against Indians

    Chicago Sun-Times "In the past, a five-inning outing in which he allowed three runs probably would mean a loss for Chris Sale. It didn’t Friday night. Sale (3-0) lasted only five innings, allowing three runs (all in the fifth) and six hits while striking out five. That qualifies as the worst of Sale’s three..." April 12

  • Jordan Danks called up; Viciedo will get most of playing time

    Chicago Sun-Times "The White Sox called up Jordan Danks from Class AAA Charlotte to take Avisail Garcia’s place on the roster, but Dayan Viciedo will get most of the playing time with Garcia out for the season. “He’s going to get the majority of it in right field,’’ manager Robin Ventura said. Viciedo, 25,..." April 11

  • White Sox finally find a way to beat the Indians

    CSN Chicago "That streak, a hideous run of baseball that seemed to define the 2013 White Sox, is over. Courtesy of Thursday’s 7-3 win at U.S. Cellular Field, the White Sox snapped a 14-game losing streak against the Cleveland Indians that dated back to April 24, 2013. At least for a day, the White Sox can..." April 11

  • Avisail Garcia done for year with torn labrum

  • DJ LeMahieu's 3 RBIs, 3 hits guide Rockies by White Sox in series finale

    Denver Post "Injuries test a team's mettle, turning roster depth into a truth-or-dare game. Ineffectiveness messes with a club's psyche. Prior to Wednesday's game against the Chicago White Sox, the Rockies sent a message that reverberated in the clubhouse, suggesting that the bid for a winning season was not..." April 10

    Avisail Garcia hurt while attempting to make a diving catch in RF. Can't tell if he caught that or not. Goes for a game-tying 2B w/ 2 outs.

  • Frank Thomas thinks MLB is juicing baseballs

    CBSSports.com "It's no secret that offense has declined around the league these last few years, and there are many possible explanations.

  • White Sox break out the bats in blowout win over Rockies

    CSN Chicago "The White Sox future looks a whole lot brighter after Tuesday night. About 1,544 feet brighter. Jose Abreu blasted the first two home runs of his career and Avisail Garcia matched him for the White Sox, who homered six times in a 15-3 win over the Colorado Rockies in front of 25,393 at Coors..."

  • Sale, White Sox top Royals 5-1

    Chicago Tribune "Help for White Sox left-hander Chris Sale against the Kansas City Royals has been hard to come by in the past. In Sale’s last five starts against the Royals heading into Sunday’s game at Kauffman Stadium, he had received one total run of support. He didn’t need much Sunday. Sale pitched..." April 07

  • Salvador Perez leads Royals past White Sox for second straight win

    Kansas City Star "Salvador Perez flipped his bat as he sprinted down the first base line, a small but telling expression of his excitement. His eighth-inning double provided the winning run in a 4-3 Royals victory over the White Sox on Saturday, and saved the team from the frustration of another bullpen blowup...." April 06

  • Royals beat White Sox 7-5 in home opener

    Kansas City Star "The chant arose in the ninth inning, as Greg Holland finished carving up the White Sox lineup in the final moments of a 7-5 victory. “Let’s go Royals,” shouted those remaining from the 40,103 assembled at Kauffman Stadium, those who stuck through three hours and 37 minutes of meandering..."

  • Twins win a wild one 10-9 over White Sox to avoid sweep

    Minneapolis Star Tribune "One day after their closer coughed up a lead, the Twins got their revenge.

  • White Sox outlast Twins on frigid afternoon

    CSN Chicago "They endured so much during a horrid 2013 campaign that the White Sox aren’t about to complain when they win. No matter how they win — even if it’s a game in which a good number of fundamental aspects weren’t picturesque. But mistakes aside, the 2014 White Sox are off to a 2-0 start courtesy..." April 03

  • White Sox remain vague about new closer

    CSN Chicago "The White Sox are carrying out their plan to be nonchalant about who will assume the closer’s role.
