  • White Sox's Romy Gonzalez: Maintains home run streak

    Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a solo homer, one double, an additional RBI, an additional run scored and one steal in Tuesday's 7-3 victory over the Angels.

    Gonzalez continued his tear at the plate, swatting his third home run in as many games while also swiping his third bag of the season. Since being activated from the IL on May 13, Gonzalez owns a .323 average with three homers, 11 RBI and six runs scored. Though his recent play has been quite encouraging, Gonzalez will likely return to a backup role upon the return of Elvis Andrus (oblique), which is expected to come later this week.

  • White Sox's Romy Gonzalez: Homers in second straight game

    Gonzalez went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Monday's 6-4 loss to the Angels.

    After going without a home run in his first 58 plate appearances of the season, Gonzalez has now popped solo blasts in both of the White Sox's past two games. He appears to have supplanted Hanser Alberto as Chicago's preferred second baseman for the time being, but both Gonzalez and Alberto will see their opportunities take a hit when Elvis Andrus (oblique) likely returns from the 10-day injured list later this week.

  • White Sox's Romy Gonzalez: Gaining traction at second base

    Gonzalez will start at second base and bat ninth in Sunday's game against the Tigers.

    Gonzalez will man the keystone for the sixth time in seven games and may have emerged as the primary replacement at the position while Elvis Andrus (oblique) is on the shelf. Hanser Alberto had missed a good chunk of those games while missing a shoulder injury of his own, but since he returned to action Friday, he didn't play second base Saturday and won't on Sunday either. After sitting out Saturday's game entirely, Alberto will be filling in for a resting Yoan Moncada at third base in the series finale.

  • White Sox's Romy Gonzalez: Making most of playing time

    Gonzalez went 1-for-3 with a double, two RBI and a run scored Wednesday against the Guardians.

    Gonzalez has started each of the White Sox's last four games with Hanser Alberto (shoulder) sidelined and Elvis Andrus (oblique) on the injured list. He's collected five hits across 15 at-bats in that span, tallying six RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base. For the season, Gonzalez is still hitting just .200, and he's almost certain to lose playing time when either Alberto or Andrus return.

  • White Sox's Romy Gonzalez: Gets fourth straight start

    Gonzalez will start at second base and bat eighth in Wednesday's game against the Guardians.

    Gonzalez will pick up a fourth consecutive start, including his third straight at the keystone while Hanser Alberto (shoulder) has been banged up. The White Sox haven't revealed whether Alberto will require a trip to the 10-day injured list, but even if that's the case, Gonzalez may not be in store for a long-term run as an everyday player. Elvis Andrus (oblique) is expected to head out on a rehab assignment next week and could be ready to return from the IL within the first week of June to reclaim duties as Chicago's primary second baseman.

  • White Sox's Romy Gonzalez: Steals second bag

    Gonzalez went 3-for-3 with one triple, two RBI, one run scored and one steal in Sunday's 5-2 victory over the Royals.

    Gonzalez drew the start at shortstop for the White Sox on Sunday and collected a trio of hits. His performance was highlighted by a two-RBI triple in the fifth inning off Max Castillo that plated Gavin Sheets and Clint Frazier to give Chicago the lead. Sunday's outing was Gonzalez's first multi-hit performance in 2023, while his stolen base was his first since April 9. Though Gonzalez may have earned himself some more opportunities moving forward after Sunday's contest, he shouldn't be considered in most formats given his .195/.190/.293 slash line this season.

  • White Sox's Romy Gonzalez: Activated Saturday

    Gonzalez (shoulder) was activated from the 10-day injured list Saturday.

    Elvis Andrus was placed on the IL with an oblique strain, so there could be at-bats available at the keystone over the next couple weeks. However, Hanser Alberto is starting over Gonzalez on Saturday.

  • White Sox's Romy Gonzalez: Placed on 10-day IL

    Gonzalez was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday, retroactive to May 1, with right shoulder inflammation.

    Gonzalez will miss at least the next nine days while recovering from what sounds like a minor shoulder issue. The 26-year-old utilityman had gone just 5-for-36 (.139) with a .333 OPS through 21 games this season with Chicago.

  • White Sox's Romy Gonzalez: Swipes first bag

    Gonzalez went 1-for-3 with a stolen base Sunday against the Pirates.

    Gonzalez started against a right-handed pitcher for the first time this season while stepping into the lineup for Luis Robert to get a day of rest. He reached base on a single in the fifth inning and then swiped second base for his first stolen base of the season. Gonzalez has three hits in 13 at-bats this season, but he's not getting consistent playing time.

  • White Sox's Romy Gonzalez: Starts against lefty

    Gonzalez went 1-for-2 in Thursday's win over the Astros.

    Gonzalez started in right field and hit ninth, earning the start over Oscar Colas. That's likely only because lefty Framber Valdez was on the mound for Houston, as Colas is expected to see the majority of playing time at the position. Gonzalez earned 109 plate appearances in the majors in 2022 and posted a .238/.257/.352 line.

  • White Sox's Romy Gonzalez: Might start opener in right field

    Gonzalez could start in right field for the White Sox in Thursday's opener versus the Astros, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Oscar Colas is in line for the bulk of the playing time in right field, but with the Astros starting southpaw Framber Valdez, the left-handed hitting Colas might start on the bench in favor of Gonzalez, with Eloy Jimenez handling the designated hitter spot. Gonzalez clubbed five homers this spring, and while it's a small sample, he sports an .874 OPS versus lefties in the big leagues.

  • White Sox's Romy Gonzalez: Could lose out on roster spot

    Gonzalez could lose out on a roster spot to begin the season in favor of Leury Garcia, Scott Merkin of reports.

    Gonzalez has had an inconsistent spring, leaving his status for Opening Day in flux. On one hand, he's slugged four home runs and added a double across 40 Cactus League at-bats. However, Gonzalez has also struck out 15 times in 43 total plate appearances. While Gonzalez's defensive versatility has been praised by the club, Garcia is also capable of playing many positions, either in the infield or outfield.

  • White Sox's Romy Gonzalez: Headed for utility role

    General manager Rick Hahn praised Gonzalez's defensive versatility when speaking to the media at the beginning of spring training, Scott Merkin of reports.

    For much of the offseason, Gonzalez was projected to start at second base for the White Sox. That changed when the team signed Elvis Andrus on Feb. 19, but Gonzalez could still make the big-league club out of spring training as a utility option. He's played every defensive position for the organization except first base, catcher and center field, which caused Hahn to draw a comparison between Gonzalez and Ben Zobrist.

  • White Sox's Romy Gonzalez: Heads to bench Monday

    Gonzalez isn't starting Monday against the Twins.

  • White Sox's Romy Gonzalez: Tallies 11th RBI

    Gonzalez went 1-for-4 with a triple, an RBI and a run scored Thursday against the Twins.

    Gonzalez lined a ball to right field in the third inning, which turned into an RBI triple after it was misplayed by Matt Wallner. It was Gonzalez's first run batted in across his last 10 starts, and he's hit only .114 across his last 35 at-bats. Despite his struggles, Gonzalez should continue to get consistent run at second base to close the regular season.
