Top White Sox News

  • White Sox's Michael Kopech: Undergoes knee surgery

    Kopech (shoulder) underwent surgery on his right knee Thursday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    Kopech was already likely to miss the rest of the 2022 season due to a shoulder injury. That's now official, and he'll end the campaign with a 3.54 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 105:57 K:BB across 119.1 frames. Kopech is expected to overcome both issues in time to pitch without limitations for the beginning of spring training in 2023.

  • White Sox's Romy Gonzalez: Still not starting

    Gonzalez isn't in the lineup Saturday against San Diego.

    Gonzalez is on the bench for a second consecutive matchup after he went 2-for-7 with a triple, a run, an RBI and four strikeouts over his last two games. Josh Harrison will take over at the keystone and bat ninth once again.

  • White Sox's Jose Abreu: Absent from Saturday's lineup

    Abreu isn't starting Saturday against the Padres.

    Abreu went 4-for-14 with two doubles, two RBI and a strikeout over the last four games, but he'll be out of the lineup for the second time in less than a week. Andrew Vaughn will take over at first base and bat sixth.

  • White Sox's Jimmy Lambert: Shuts down San Diego

    Lambert allowed zero runs on zero hits and one walk while striking out two over one inning in Friday's 3-1 win over San Diego.

    Lambert surrendered a one-out walk to Jake Cronenworth, but he was able to strike out Brandon Drury and Josh Bell to record his first scoreless outing in his last four appearances. Although the 27-year-old righty got on the right track with a scoreless outing, walks are still an issue. Lambert has walked six batters over his last four appearances. Nonetheless, Lambert is putting together a solid season in his first extended run in the majors, and he looks much more comfortable in the bullpen rather than as a starter. Since being called up in early June, he has amassed 30 scoreless outings in 39 appearances and recorded 10 holds while lowering his season ERA to 3.33 over 46 innings, 39.1 of which have come as a reliever. Lambert has cemented himself as a reliable setup man, and he will look to gain some positive momentum as the season winds down.

  • White Sox's Elvis Andrus: Ends cold spell

    Andrus went 1-for-3 with a double, a walk and a stolen base in Friday's 3-1 win over the Padres.

    Andrus entered the contest 0-for-22 across his last five games, though he wasn't out of the lineup in that span. He was able to put the slump to rest Friday, and he also picked up his 16th steal of the year. The shortstop now owns a .247/.302/.390 slash line with 14 home runs, 52 RBI, 62 runs scored and 31 doubles through 144 contests.

  • White Sox's Eloy Jimenez: Slugs solo shot

    Jimenez went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 3-1 win over the Padres.

    Jimenez tied the game when he took Yu Darvish deep in the fourth inning. Over his last 20 games, Jimenez has slugged seven of his 16 homers and added 20 of his 53 RBI for the season. The outfielder's batting average dipped below .300 for the first time since Sept. 6, but he's produced a strong .871 OPS through 81 contests this year.

  • White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Three hits in return

    Moncada (foot) went 3-for-4 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in Friday's 3-1 win over the Padres.

    Moncada missed the last two games due to a bone bruise on his foot. The third baseman played the full game Friday and was effective from the No. 6 spot in the order. He put up six multi-hit efforts in 19 games in September, going 24-for-82 (.293) for the month. He's slashing just .218/.282/.364 with 12 home runs, 50 RBI, 40 runs scored and two stolen bases through 99 contests overall.

  • White Sox's Liam Hendriks: Records 35th save

    Hendriks pitched a perfect inning and struck out two to earn the save in Friday's 3-1 win over the Padres.

    Hendriks threw 10 of his 15 pitches for strikes and gave the Padres no hope of a comeback. He's pitched 7.2 innings without allowing an earned run across his last eight appearances, adding five saves and a 1-1 record in that span. For the season, the closer has a 2.91 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 80:14 K:BB through 55.2 innings while going 35-for-39 in save chances.

  • White Sox's Davis Martin: Picks up win Friday

    Martin (3-5) allowed a run on six hits and a hit batter while striking out eight over 5.2 innings to earn the win over the Padres on Friday.

    Martin limited the damage to a Josh Bell RBI single in the second inning. This was the second time in three starts since returning to the majors that Martin allowed just one run, and his eight strikeouts marked a season high. The right-hander now has a 3.65 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 47:17 K:BB through 61.2 innings across 13 appearances (eight starts). He's tentatively projected for one more start, which would be against Minnesota next week.

  • White Sox's AJ Pollock: Retreats to bench Friday

    Pollock Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune Friday's game against the Padres, source reports.

    Pollock has gone 7-for-21 with a home run and two RBI over the past week, and he will get a day off Friday to rest. Mark Payton will step in to cover center field and bat second.

  • White Sox's Yasmani Grandal: Sitting Friday

    Grandal will hit the bench Friday against the Padres.

    The White Sox are no longer in playoff contention and could rest their veterans frequently over the final few games of the season. Carlos Perez will take over behind the plate Friday.

  • White Sox's Romy Gonzalez: Resting Friday

    Gonzalez isn't starting Friday against the Padres.

    Gonzalez started the last two games and went 2-for-7 with a triple, a run, an RBI and four strikeouts. He'll get a breather while Josh Harrison starts at the keystone and bats ninth.

  • White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Returns to lineup Friday

    Moncada (foot) is starting at third base and batting sixth Friday against the Padres, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    After missing the last two games due to a bone bruise on the top of his foot, Moncada is officially good to go again. He will return to face Yu Darvish, whom he is 1-for-9 against in his career with four strikeouts.

  • 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.

  • White Sox's Mark Payton: Scores twice, drives in one

    Payton went 2-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored Thursday against the Twins.

    Payton drew only his second start since being recalled Sept. 24, and took advantage by collecting his first hits of the season. He has only 53 career plate appearances in the majors and has a 49 wRC+ in that span. Even if he sees an uptick in playing time across the final few games of the season, he isn't likely to make a major impact.

  • White Sox's Liam Hendriks: Picks up 34th save

    Hendriks walked one and struck out two in a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save Thursday against the Twins.

    Hendriks maintained a one-run lead to record his 34th save of the season. He's turned in seven consecutive scoreless appearances, and he's maintained a 9:2 K:BB across 6.2 innings in that span. While he hasn't replicated his dominant 2021 campaign, Hendriks still has a very solid 2.96 ERA and 1.02 WHIP across 54.2 frames on the campaign.

  • White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Six more punchouts

    Giolito allowed two earned runs on for hits and three walks while striking out six across five innings Thursday against the Twins. He did not factor into the decision.

    Giolito allowed four of the first six batters he faced to reach base, which accounted for both of the earned runs against him. However, he settled in from there -- with the exception of his control problems -- and he racked up 12 swinging strikes on 93 total pitches. Giolito has failed to meet expectations this season, though he has maintained a 3.71 ERA with a 31:11 K:BB across 26.2 innings and five starts in September.
