On deck: The next three White Sox prospects we should see in Chicago

With no MLB outfield depth to speak of, it could be Yoelqui Céspedes time in the season’s second half. | Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports Reinforcements will be one the way, due to performance or injury — but who will arrive first? The Chicago White Sox have made their first marquee prospect promotion of the 2022 season, calling up Lenyn Sosa to the major leagues following his blistering start to the season in Double-A Birmingham. In 62 games with the Barons, Sosa was hitting a whopping .331 with a .933 OPS, hitting 14 home runs and 48 RBIs. Sosa will bring an...

Rivalry Roundup: Yordan dominates, Cleveland takes first

Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports Cleveland staged a thrilling comeback, while Yordan Alvarez dominated down in Houston. The Yankees pulled off another big comeback win last night, ensuring that their foes would be unable to pick up any ground. That said, their division rivals, outside of the Rays, did their best to at least keep pace. Here’s how the action went down across the American League yesterday. Chicago White Sox (33-34) vs. Toronto Blue Jays (39-30) Lucas Giolito, once Chicago’s ace, has had a rough go of it. He entered yesterday’s start against Toronto...

Rivalry Roundup: White Sox outlast Blue Jays in 12 wild innings

Photo by Quinn Harris/ A wild game in Chicago highlighted a night full of close matchups in the Rivalry Roundup. Last night saw a ninth inning Yankees’ rally fall just short in a 5-4 loss to the Rays. A potential game-tying Aaron Judge home run fell just a few feet short, getting caught on the warning track for the final out of the game. Even in a loss, it was an impressive effort to fight back and even get that close, considering they were down 5-2 going into the inning. With other teams besides the Rays getting the chance to gain ground on the Yankees, let’s check...

But hey, maybe we’ll have some Detroit denizens to help us out — we have more in common with them than division rivalry. It sucks to be a Sox fan, but it also sucks to be a Tigers...

The good times kept rolling for the Yankees on Saturday, winning on the back of another elite pitching performance out of the rotation. Luis Severino was the man to get the call this time, and he diced up the Tigers lineup to the tune of seven shutout with one hit and 10 strikeouts — and in doing so becoming the fifth starter in a row to pitch at least seven innings and allow only a run or fewer.
