Final: Dodgers 9, White Sox 6

The game: Every starting position player in the Dodgers’ lineup had at least one hit as they built a seven-run lead through six innings. They weren't around as the rest of the Dodgers struggled to close out a 9-6 victory over the Chicago White Sox...

If not now, then when for Carlos Rodon?

GLENDALE, Ariz. – A day after striking out nine batters in a Cactus League game, a refreshed Carlos Rodon said he slept well. Funny what a productive day at the office can do for your overall well being. Although the sentiment is that the top Chicago White Sox prospect looks worthy of an Opening Day roster spot, the decision to bring him north when the season begins isn’t so simple. Yes, there is the service time issue, something the Chicago Cubs have been dealing with all spring as their young phenom Kris Bryant takes flight.

Mason Foster confident he'll thrive in Bears' 3-4 defense

Mason Foster emerged from free agency upbeat. Sure, the one-year contract he signed with the Chicago Bears on Wednesday was not nearly as lucrative as one he might have earned if injuries didn’t hamper his 2014 season. But the inside linebacker put that what-if behind him a long time ago.

David Robertson, Jake Petricka dealing with arm soreness

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- For now, the Chicago White Sox are downplaying arm soreness being experienced by both David Robertson and Jake Petricka, both of whom are expected to be key members of the bullpen. Robertson, who has been on his own self-made preparation schedule, did throw a bullpen session Thursday and said he still is looking to pitch in games on back-to-back days before spring training ends next week. “I don’t think anything is wrong; I’m not going for MRIs or anything like that,” Robertson said.

Jeff Samardzija set to put on a good show

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Peppered with Opening Day questions, essentially since the day Chris Sale injured his foot at the end of February, Jeff Samardzija finally had something definitive to answer Thursday. On Wednesday evening, Chicago White Sox manager Robin Ventura confirmed what had been expected, that Samardzija will start in the April 6 opener at Kansas City. “Yeah, you know, I’m excited, just to come out and represent this team and put on a good showing for everybody,” Samardzija said shortly after seeing the media mob approaching and knowing what was coming.

Carlos Rodon steals the day with 9 Ks

SURPRISE, Ariz. – On the day Jeff Samardzija was named Opening Day starter, it was another Chicago White Sox pitcher that grabbed away the spotlight. Left-hander Carlos Rodon, the team’s first-round draft pick last year, struck out nine Kansas City Royals batters over four innings in the most dominating performance by any White Sox starter this spring. In the process, Rodon and former his North Carolina State teammate Brett Austin look like a force to be reckoned with in the future.

Impressive Courtney Hawkins reassigned to minors camp

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Chicago White Sox made three more roster moves Wednesday, among them the reassignment of Courtney Hawkins to minor league camp. The White Sox also optioned catcher Rob Brantly to Triple-A Charlotte and reassigned infielder Juan Diaz to minor league camp. Hawkins opened some eyes in his first big league camp, hitting four home runs, including two on Saturday against the Kansas City Royals. The second of his two homers ended the game in walk-off fashion.

Bullpen session keeps Chris Sale's recovery on track

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Chicago White Sox left-hander Chris Sale continued to progress toward an April 12 season debut with a short bullpen session Wednesday. Sale got in his work in a bullpen adjacent to a Triple-A game between the White Sox and Reds, where Hector Noesi faced off against Cincinnati's Dylan Axelrod. Sale fractured a bone in his right foot at the end of February and has been on a delayed schedule ever since as he tries to get ready for the season.

Eaton, Johnson speeding up relationship

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Deep into the spring, as the Opening Day lineup starts to take shape, Chicago White Sox players continue to work on their professional relationships. Early in the spring, leadoff Adam Eaton talked about the importance of developing a dialog with No. 2 hitter Melky Cabrera. The intent was for Eaton to let Cabrera know when he was most comfortable stealing bases, while Cabrera would inform Eaton the counts he would prefer to not be distracted by a runner breaking on the pitch.
