Tigers 7, White Sox 5: Carson Fulmer falters in first test

Rookie reliever struggles with control to take first loss For a brief moment, the White Sox looked poised to pull off an upset. They solved phenom rookie Michael Fulmer for five runs, three of them coming when Justin Morneau turned on an elevated cutter and deposited it into the Detroit bullpen for his first homer in a White Sox uniform and a 5-4 lead through five. The problem: The bullpen had to protect that one-run lead while covering 5⅔ innings after the Tigers wore out Jacob Turner. The effort broke down in the seventh, as Carson Fulmer struggled to find the strike zone in his first...

Series Preview: Twins at Red Sox

Can the Twins win back to back series against over .500 teams? The Twins beat the Tigers in a series, which is a bit shocking actually. They now will go to Boston for a four-game series. They then return to Target Field for a home stand that will include the return of Justin Morneau... in a White Sox uniform. Here is the write up I did back on June 10 about the Red Sox, for comparison. The Red Sox sit at 53-39 and are in a fight for first place with the Blue Jays and the Orioles. The trio are within a game of first in the AL East. Surprise, surprise; David Ortiz is still good, and he is...

Second-half questions the White Sox haven’t already answered

Mysteries abound, from trade deadline to the future of their manager The White Sox haven’t even played a game yet — they’ll be one of the last teams to emerge from the All-Star break due to West Coast start times -- and yet they’ve already resolved a couple mysteries. Justin Morneau and Carson Fulmer are set to join the team in Anaheim, bringing an end to the "when" questions that have followed them. There are plenty more questions in store as the White Sox enter a second half over .500 for once, and in a position to keep building. Here’s a smattering, and in some order of their...

White Sox opening second half with Carson Fulmer in tow

Multiple reports say organization's top pitching prospect is joining the club in Anaheim It turns out that Carson Fulmer’s dynamite appearance in the Futures Game doubled as his transition to the bullpen. Multiple reports -- Jesse Burkhart, Dave at Barstool and Chris Cotillo -- all agree that Fulmer will take the 40-man roster spot opened by Scott Carroll’s outrighting earlier in the day, and join Justin Morneau as the newest additions to the 25-man roster before the White Sox open the second half against the Angels in Anaheim. Assuming Fulmer will be working out of the bullpen and not...

White Sox Minor League Update: July 10-16

Scores, stats, and news from the White Sox farm system Justin Morneau didn't play on Sunday, but the interruption of his rehab stint was due to league schedules, not a setback. With the International League heading into its break with the big leaguers, Sunday was a travel day for Morneau, who will continue to get at-bats with the Birmingham Barons while the Knights are idle (Charlotte will be anything but dormant, as BB&T Park is hosting the league's All-Star Game). Morneau, who said he thought he'd need at least 30 plate appearances, accumulated 19 over six games with Charlotte. The...

Series Preview: Twins at White Sox

Justin Morneau could be back in time for Ghostbusters, a movie I don't have an opinion on. After salvaging the last game of the series in New York, the Twins will try their luck against another .500 team,  the White Sox. What have they been up to? From May 14 to June 19th, the White Sox went 9-24, which took some air out of their proverbial balloon, after starting 23-10. Their record as I type this is 38-38 as they've recently managed to pull out of their tail spin. They made "big" news (to us) when they signed Justin Morneau, who hopes to be back in mid-July, "just in" time for the...

Farm Report: Everybody Hurts, Sometimes

A recap of the Twins' minor league affiliates' results from June 27th, 2016. AAA: Pawtucket Red Sox 6, Rochester Red Wings 2 Another soft outing for SP Pat Dean. He made it 5 innings yesterday but gave up four earned runs on eight hits and two walks. He battled back and limited the damage a couple innings, but frankly, it wasn’t enough. Meanwhile, Miguel Sano (playing right field) made good on his promise to mash taters in triple-a with a solo shot in the 4th inning. 2B Jorge Polanco immediately followed Sano with a solo shot of his own. The back-to-back dingers comprised the...
