J.B. Shuck (hamstring) is nearing a rehab assignment.

Shuck has been running the last few days, attempting to get as close to 100 percent effort as possible. "Today was another step forward," Shuck said. "Every day I get a little bit stronger and get a little bit more explosive on the running. And it's still feeling pretty good."
Aug 11 - 9:11 PM

White Sox placed OF J.B. Shuck on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring.

The 28-year-old outfielder has done a nice job in a bench role for the White Sox, slashing .278/.339/.361 with 11 RBI in 97 at-bats. He should be ready to rejoin the club in mid-August.
Aug 1 - 3:37 PM

J.B. Shuck played the role of hero on Saturday, delivering a pinch-hit RBI double in the eighth inning to break a tie and propel the White Sox to a 3-2 victory over the Orioles.

He pinch-hit for Geovany Soto with a man on second and one-out in the eighth inning, greeting Darren O'Day with a double to right field to break the 2-2 deadlock. Shuck has played well in his limited playing time this season, slashing .292/.358/.333 with no homers and six RBI in 72 at-bats.
Jul 4 - 5:13 PM

J.B. Shuck had a go-ahead pinch-hit RBI single in Saturday's 5-4 win over the Twins.

Shuck, who pinch-hit for Geovany Soto, drove in the go-ahead run after Alexei Ramirez reached on a high throw to first base from Twins shortstop Danny Santana and Conor Gillaspie followed with a double. After starting the season 0-4, the White Sox are finally in the win column.
Apr 11 - 5:42 PM

J.B. Shuck continued his hot-hitting spring by going 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI in a losing effort against the Brewers on Sunday.

Shuck also swiped his fourth base of the Cactus League season. The 27-year-old is certainly making a strong push for a reserve outfielder role on the Opening Day roster, slashing .394/.444/.455 through 33 at-bats.
Mar 22 - 9:33 PM

White Sox claimed OF J.B. Shuck off waivers from the Indians.

Shuck had a surprise 2013 season but crashed back to earth this year, hitting just .145/.168/.209 over 38 games for the Angels and Indians. He'll try to win a bench spot for the White Sox next spring.

Indians acquired OF J.B. Shuck from the Angels in exchange for cash considerations.

Shuck was a really nice surprise for the Angels last year, hitting .293/.331/.366 in 437 at-bats and playing strong defense in left field. This year, he was a complete non-factor, hitting .167/.195/.250 in 84 at-bats in the majors. He came in at .320/.382/.446 in Triple-A, but that was in a great offensive environment at Salt Lake. Most likely, he'll bounce around as a reserve outfielder/Triple-A guy for a few more years. The Indians should bring him right to the majors, but he probably won't have any fantasy value with David Murphy back.

Angels designated OF J.B. Shuck for assignment.

Shuck hit .167/.195/.250 in 22 games this season at the major league level. He was moved off the 40-man roster Tuesday to clear a spot for a September callup.

Angels optioned OF J.B. Shuck to Triple-A Salt Lake.

With C.J. Wilson activated from the disabled list on Saturday, the Angels opted to keep an extra arm in the bullpen and send out Shuck. In 22 games with the big league club this season, he has hit .167/.195/.250 with a pair of homers and nine RBI.

Angels recalled OF J.B. Shuck from Triple-A Salt Lake.

J.B. Shuck blasted a leadoff home run off Max Scherzer in Saturday's loss to the Tigers.

As terrific of a start to the game as it was, it would be the only run that they would scratch across against Scherzer. Shuck, hitting out of the leadoff spot in the lineup, finished the day 1-for-4 and is hitting a disappointing .189/.211/.351 in the early going.
Sat, Apr 19, 2014 04:27:00 PM

J.B. Shuck went 3-for-6 with an RBI and a run scored in Sunday's lopsided win over the Mets.

Shuck batted leadoff and came through with three singles. He's hit in each of his first three games after being called up Wednesday, now batting .357 (5-for-14). He should continue to get the majority of the starts in left field during Josh Hamilton's extended absence.
