Sox Century: April 26, 1917

Shut out by a Cleveland ace --- where have we heard that before? After scoring two runs combined over the first two games of the series against Cleveland, the White Sox offense sputtered further, getting shut out on a seven-hitter by Indians ace Jim Bagby. The Sox actually outhit the Tribe 7-6, but the Indians outscored them 3-0. They clustered their hits a little better, but they mostly scored due to leaky White Sox defense, and Ray Schalk in particular. Schalk had problems catching Red Faber in the first inning. First, he couldn’t block a curve that resulted in a one-out strikeout, and...

White Sox 5, Royals 2: Quintana K’s 10, earns first win in ‘17

White Sox 5, Royals 2: Quintana K’s 10, earns first win in ‘17

After four shaky starts, Jose Quintana needed today to help salvage what has been a poor performance this month to his standards. The Chicago White Sox coming into today had a team ERA of 3.02, best in Major League Baseball. Quintana is a big reason why it's not sub-3, as after his first four starts he had a 6.17 ERA and 5.69 FIP. This afternoon, Quintana found his missing fastball command and had his best start of 2017 in the White Sox 5-2 win over Kansas City. Quintana was at his best in the first four innings. The Royals could only manage two hits; Whit Merrifield's bloop single in the...

White Sox: Dane Dunning Dominating Class A Competition

White Sox top prospect has been dominant in Class A Kannapolis. The right handed pitcher could earn a promotion to Class A Advanced if he continues succeeding for Intimidators.

For the second night in a row the White Sox scored double digits on the Kansas City Royals. Todd Frazier led the charge with three RBIs in a 10-5 victory.

Willy Garcia savors his cup of coffee

Inside a White Sox prospect’s weekend stay on the 25-man roster (Note from Jim: Jonathan Lee is a freelance writer in Charlotte who will be contributing stories about the Knights to South Side Sox over the next couple of months.) Willy Garcia looked at the lineup and giggled. "We thought it was pretty cool,” he said. “We had a good laugh." Garcia was referring to his debut, in which he contributed to Major League Baseball history by merely taking the field. By starting in the same outfield with teammates Avisail Garcia and Leury Garcia for the White Sox on April 14 against Minnesota,...

White Sox Minor League Update: April 25, 2017

Great pitching for the teams in playable conditions After scheduled days off and rainouts, the White Sox farm system was supposed to return to full strength today. Alas, Kannapolis was rained out for the third straight game — the field in Hagerstown was considered unplayable — and Winston-Salem couldn’t get started either. At least the teams who got out of the mid-Atlantic were able to play ... and pitch. Top prospects at a glance Yoan Moncada: 1-for-5, 3B, K Carson Fulmer: 6 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 8 K, 1 WP, 1 HBP Michael Kopech: 6 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 4 BB, 8 K, 65 of 95 pitches for...

White Sox 10, Royals 5: Danny Duffy cracks

Persistent White Sox finally break down Kansas City ace In what was a drawn-out game from the start, the White Sox found a way to wait out the Royals until they broke. The way they cracked couldn’t have started more innocuously, either. With the game tied at 2, Danny Duffy retired the first two Sox in the bottom of the fourth, then got ahead of Omar Narvaez 0-2. Seven pitches later, the count was 2-2. One more pitch later, Duffy hung a changeup, and Narvaez pulled it into right field for a double. He wasn’t in position to start anything, but Leury Garcia followed him with a double, Tim...

The next big Chicago White Sox trade will involve David Robertson

The next trade for the Chicago White Sox is coming soon. Despite a pause in action since December, Rick Hahn will strike soon enough. The White Sox are off to a surprisingly good start to the 2017 season lead by a pitching staff with the best earned run average in Major League Baseball (2.91).

Winning streak comes to an end in a steady rain The White Sox’ four-game winning streak came to an end on this day, although the Chicago Tribune’s I.E. Sanborn wondered why they and the Indians even played. There was no perceptible reason for playing the game. It rained before, during and after the battle, and there wasn’t even any crowd on hand to see it. Indeed, the box score lists Comiskey’s parks estimated attendance at 1,000. The rain starting letting up around the scheduled start time, so the teams bet on a better forecast that never materialized. Irving Vaughn of the Chicago...

White Sox place Zach Putnam on 10-day DL

Chicago White Sox reliever Zach Putnam will be placed on the 10-day disabled list with right elbow inflammation reported by the team. Yesterday, Putnam said himself that he was day to day concerning his elbow. Zach Putnam said he's very much day to day with the elbow issue.— Connor McKnight (@C1McKnight) April 24, 2017 This news comes off as a bit of disappointing as Putnam was pitching very well. In 8.2 IP, he had only allowed one earned run on two hits while striking out nine. Last season, Putnam was placed on the disabled list for Ulnar Neuritis in his right elbow, causing him to...

Mad about Matt Davidson? Good

Mad about Matt Davidson? Good

If White Sox fans think he should be playing more, that means he’s producing Matt Davidson leads the White Sox in home runs with four. He’s tied for the team lead in RBIs with 14. And when it comes to plate appearances, heeeeeeeeeeee’s ... ... eighth. Depending on how you look at it, that’s either remarkable, or remarkably frustrating, especially since his officemate at DH has spent the year on the other side of the production spectrum: Matt Davidson: .368/.375/.789 over 40 PA, 1 BB, 17 K, 229 OPS+ Cody Asche: .057/.132/.057 over 38 PA, 2 BB, 14 K, -42 OPS+ You can apply that...

Spencer Adams stars in the system’s only game of the day Spencer Adams isn’t known as a strikeout pitcher, but he was able to dramatically reverse the slide in his start-to-start K-rate by fanning 10 Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp over six innings in Birmingham’s 4-1 loss on Monday. It was a career-high in strikeouts for Adams, who had previously struck out nine on a couple of occasions in the Arizona Rookie League, but had topped out at eight strikeouts even in A-ball. He entered the start with six strikeouts over his previous 14 innings, which is low for him, but not totally out of...

White Sox 12, Royals 1: Matt Davidson strikes thrice, including twice in sixth

Eight-run explosion allows Miguel Gonzalez to coast Matt Davidson sat the last four games due to a string of tough right-handed starters. His replacements/platoonmates failed to impress. With Kansas City throwing lefties at the Sox in the first two games of the series, Davidson had a chance to stake his claim to a greater share of the playing time when the righties returned. Did he ever take advantage. Davidson opened the scoring with a solo homer off Jason Vargas in the second, then collected a run-scoring double and a two-run single in same frame four innings later. The White Sox scored a...
