Avisail Garcia went 2-for-4 and drove in a run during Saturday's loss to the Cubs.

He knocked in Yolmer Sanchez with a single in the first inning but his team got thumped by their cross-town rivals. The outfielder missed nearly half the season due to injury and hasn't hit all that well when healthy enough to play. He is slashing .237/.278/.442 with 18 home runs and 46 RBI in 87 games. That on-base percentage would be bottom 10 in baseball if he had enough at-bats to qualify.

Lucas Giolito was knocked around for five runs in 6 2/3 innings and was charged with a loss to the Cubs on Saturday.

He surrendered seven hits in the contest, including a two-run homer by Javier Baez and a two-run double by Ben Zobrist. He struck out five and walked three while throwing 108 pitches. He falls to 10-12 with a 5.81 ERA over 31 starts in his first full major league season. A couple of years ago he was considered the top overall pitching prospect in baseball and so far has not come anywhere close to living up to that billing.

Tim Anderson was ejected from Saturday's game against the Cubs for arguing balls and strikes.

That's at least what appears to have happened as home plate umpire Joe West tossed Anderson while Anderson was batting in the ninth inning. White Sox manager Rick Renteria was also run by West. Jose Rondon filled in for Anderson, flying out to end the game. Anderson went 1-for-3 with a solo homer in the contest.

White Sox manager Rick Renteria said Saturday that he's not ruling out Jose Abreu (thigh) not making it back this season.

"He's got a pretty significant healing process he's got going on with that thigh right now," Renteria said. Abreu was hospitalized earlier this week with a serious infection in his right thigh, and with just nine games left in the season it sounds like time may be working against him. Even if he does get back, it'll likely only be for a game or two at this point.

White Sox activated OF Leury Garcia from the 10-day disabled list.

Garcia has been on the shelf since August 21 due to a hamstring strain. Prior to landing on the shelf, he was slashing .280/.310/.391 with four homers and 12 stolen bases in his 77 games this season.
Sep 22 - 2:40 PM

Daniel Palka swatted his 27th home run of the season as the White Sox dismantled the Cubs 10-4 on Friday afternoon.

Palka crushed his two-run shot off of Dillon Maples in the sixth inning, extending the White Sox' edge to 6-1. He finished the afternoon 1-for-2, raising his season slash to .242/.293/.503 to go along with his impressive 27 homers and 64 RBI.
Sep 21 - 8:24 PM

Kevan Smith went 2-for-2 and crushed a three-run homer on Friday, powering the White Sox past the Cubs.

Smith's three-run blast off of Jose Quintana gave the White Sox a 3-1 lead in the second inning and they would never look back. With the two-hit effort, he's now hitting a solid .297/.353/.374 with a pair of homers and 19 RBI in 170 plate appearances on the season.
Sep 21 - 8:21 PM

Ryan LaMarre went 3-for-3 with a double and three RBI as the White Sox blasted the Cubs on Friday afternoon.

LaMarre delivered an RBI double in the fourth inning to increase the White Sox' edge to 4-1. He then chipped in an RBI single in the sixth and a sacrifice fly in the seventh. He's having a productive season overall, slashing .286/.330/.391, though his lack of power and speed render him virtually useless from a fantasy perspective.
Sep 21 - 8:19 PM

Reynaldo Lopez was dominant in Friday's victory over the Cubs, racking up eight strikeouts over seven innings of one-run baseball.

Lopez scattered just five hits on the afternoon and didn't walk a batter. The only blemish on his day was a leadoff home run by Daniel Murphy, but he was in complete command the rest of the day. The 24-year-old hurler will look to finish his season strong when he carries a 7-9 record, 3.94 ERA and 1.26 WHIP into Wednesday's start against the Indians.
Sep 21 - 8:17 PM

Matt Davidson went 2-for-6 with the game-winning RBI single in the 11th inning, helping the White Sox edge the Indians 5-4 on Thursday.

With runners on the corners and two outs in the top of the 11th inning, Davidson slapped an Adam Cimber delivery to right field to plate the go-ahead run. Miraculously, it was his first RBI since September 3, so it had to feel a bit like getting the monkey off his back. Overall, the 27-year-old is hitting .236/.330/.441 with 20 homers and 59 RBI.
Sep 21 - 12:04 AM

Yoan Moncada went 3-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored Thursday in an extra-innings win over the Indians.

Moncada led off the game with a single and came around to score later in the inning, and he pitched in with a two-run double in the top of the second to extend the lead. He's not hitting for power, but the 23-year-old is enjoying a fine month at the dish this September, batting .296 with five doubles. Overall, Moncada has 17 homers and 11 steals to go with a .231/.309/.397 line.
Sep 20 - 11:58 PM

James Shields held the Indians to two runs over six innings in a no-decision Thursday.

Shields gave up five hits and walked three, with a pair of solo homers in the third inning the only runs against him. That's been his bugaboo -- he's now given up 33 dingers in 198 2/3 innings -- but he's done remarkably well to limit the damage, even with those homers. To that end: since the beginning of August, Shields has seven starts, out of nine, in which he's allowed three or fewer runs. He'll get another shot at these same Indians next week when the Tribe visits Chicago.
Sep 20 - 11:51 PM

Daniel Palka went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in a loss to the Indians on Wednesday.

His sixth-inning shot off Indians ace Carlos Carrasco was the only run of the game until the bottom of the ninth inning. The 26-year-old rookie is having a good season in terms of power but has a lot of trouble making contact. His 33% strikeout rate is going to make it awfully hard to have a decent batting average unless he makes some adjustments down the road. He is slashing .243/.295/.500 with 26 home runs and 62 RBI in 113 games.
Sep 20 - 12:38 AM

Yoan Moncada went 1-for-5 and struck out three more times in a loss to the Indians on Wednesday.

The one hit was a single. The three strikeouts enabled him to stay just ahead of Giancarlo Stanton (who also fanned three times today) for the major league lead in that category. He has now struck out 205 times this year. He is striking out at a higher rate than he did last year as a rookie. He owns a paltry .228/.306/.393 slash line, which is not a good look for a leadoff batter nor for a guy who was considered the top prospect in all of baseball not long ago. If he is ever going to live up to the hype he needs to start putting the bat on the baseball. He is still 23 years old, so his dynasty league owners shouldn't panic too much yet.
Sep 20 - 12:34 AM

Dylan Covey had to settle for a no-decision despite shutting out the Indians for six innings in a game his team eventually lost on Wednesday.

He held the Tribe batters to just two hits and three walks while striking out five in the gem outing. It was a rare excellent start for the struggling right-hander. He certainly deserved a win for his efforts today but the White Sox bullpen blew it for him in the ninth inning. His record holds at 5-13 with a 5.33 ERA after 19 starts and six relief appearances. He recently rejoined the starting rotation after Michael Kopech went down for Tommy John surgery.
