Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that the Twins are "working on a deal" to sign J.B. Shuck.

Shuck was outrighted by the White Sox at the beginning of November after hitting .205/.248/.299 with four homers and 14 RBI over the course of 241 plate appearances during the 2016 season. At best, he would represent a bench option for the Twins should they sign him.

Shuck batted .205/.248/.299 across 241 plate appearances this season with the White Sox. The 29-year-old outfielder is now off the team's 40-man roster.

White Sox optioned OF J.B. Shuck to Triple-A Charlotte.

J.B. Shuck went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in a win over the Astros on Saturday.

The outfielder took Astros starter Doug Fister deep for a solo shot in the fourth inning, his third homer of the season. He also had an RBI triple and a run scored in the eighth inning. Shuck has appeared in just 31 games this season but has gotten steady playing time in recent weeks, hitting .263 with a .686 OPS in June. The 29-year-old is batting .242/.263/.411 overall.

J.B. Shuck went 3-for-4 and knocked in the go-ahead run in the bottom of the eighth as the White Sox edged the Twins 6-5 on Thursday.

Rather than move Adam Eaton back to his old position, the White Sox have used Shuck as their starting center fielder since Austin Jackson went down. He started out really slow, but he's 8-for-18 with two homers during his current five-game hitting streak. Most likely, he'll cool off again soon enough.

White Sox recalled OF J.B. Shuck from Triple-A Charlotte.

Shuck will start in center field and bat fifth for the White Sox on Monday afternoon against Mets right-hander Matt Harvey. Shuck is a .262/.311/.332 career hitter in 860 plate appearances at the major league level and can go on being ignored in standard fantasy formats.

The White Sox intend to add a pitcher to their bullpen on Tuesday. Shuck, who won a spot on the Opening Day roster, began the year 0-for-9 with a walk and two strikeouts over four games.
Mon, Apr 18, 2016 11:24:00 PM

White Sox manager Robin Ventura confirmed Tuesday that J.B. Shuck will be on the Opening Day roster.

J.B. Shuck left Thursday's game against the Athletics after six innings due to left hamstring soreness.

Thu, Sep 17, 2015 04:15:00 PM

J.B. Shuck went 1-for-1 with a pinch-hit, two-run triple in Thursday afternoon's win over the Twins.

Shuck's big two-run three-bagger came with the White Sox trailing 4-3 in the seventh inning. They wouldn't look back from their new-found lead. Nice hit off the bench for the backup outfielder, particularly given the fact that he's only seen 110 at-bats this season. In his limited role, he's hitting .282/.352/.373 with no home runs and 11 RBI.
