Carlos Sanchez slugged a go-ahead three-run homer in Friday’s 7-4 victory over the Royals.
The Royals were down 4-2 going into the top of the eighth inning, but they staged a big rally against the unusually-untouchable Kelvin Herrera. After Alex Avila brought the White Sox within one run with an RBI single, Sanchez put them ahead for good with a blast in the right-field corner. The 24-year-old had a walk-off RBI single on Thursday against the Indians, so he has now played hero in back-to-back days. Sep 16 - 11:45 PM

White Sox recalled INF Carlos Sanchez from Triple-A Charlotte.

Sanchez will give the White Sox much-needed infield depth with Brett Lawrie (hamstring) landing on the disabled list. He should see some starts at second base, but there's not much fantasy intrigue here.

White Sox recalled INF Carlos Sanchez from Triple-A Charlotte.

He'll serve as the 26th man with the Tigers having to complete a suspended game Sunday in addition to their regularly scheduled contest. Sanchez is hitting just .161 across 31 at-bats for the White Sox this year.
Jul 24 - 2:49 PM

White Sox optioned INF Carlos Sanchez to Triple-A Charlotte.

White Sox optioned INF Carlos Sanchez to Triple-A Charlotte.

The move clears a spot for Erik Johnson to start the nightcap of Monday's doubleheader versus the Indians. Sanchez is 4-for-26 (.154) in 11 games with the White Sox this season and should be back at some point this summer.

White Sox recalled INF Carlos Sanchez from Triple-A Charlotte.

White Sox optioned INF Carlos Sanchez to Triple-A Charlotte.

Sanchez impressed this spring by batting .333 (18-for-54) two home runs, six doubles, one triple, and two steals over 23 games, but it wasn't enough to crack Chicago's Opening Day roster. The 23-year-old will try to keep it going at Triple-A.
Mar 29 - 1:56 PM

Carlos Sanchez finished 3-for-3 with a home run as the White Sox took the first half of a doubleheader Monday against the Tigers.

Sanchez doubled and scored in the third inning, slugged a solo shot off Tigers starter Kyle Ryan in the sixth inning, and then added an infield single in the eighth. Sanchez is still batting just .237/.277/.349 in 109 total games this season. The homer run was his fifth.

Carlos Sanchez hit his fourth homer, a two-run shot off Cody Martin, and walked Wednesday as the White Sox topped the A's 9-4.

Sanchez has faded again after his strong July, but he's still doing better now than he did in his first two months after taking over for Micah Johnson at second base. It's still pretty crazy that the White Sox had him and his .267 OBP batting second tonight, but it worked out OK.

Carlos Sanchez doubled twice and knocked in four runs as the White Sox topped the Mariners 11-4 on Friday.

One RBI came on the first of back-to-back bases-loaded walks in the eighth. Sanchez has 14 doubles and three homers in 155 at-bats since the beginning of July. He had a total of five doubles and no homers in 127 prior at-bats this season. His 58/10 K/BB ratio still leaves a great deal to be desired, but his defense can carry his bat if he continues to show even occasional pop.

Carlos Sanchez went 3-for-4 with a solo home run, helping the White Sox eke out a win against the Indians on Sunday.

Sanchez hit his first home run of the season on Saturday and kept it going on Sunday, taking Danny Salazar yard in the third inning to put the White Sox up 1-0. He's now on a nine-game hitting streak, a welcome sight for the Pale Hose, who have watched the 23-year-old struggle for most of the season. Sanchez is batting .221/.257/.307 with two home runs and 13 RBI.

Carlos Sanchez unloaded the bases in the 10th inning, helping the White Sox fend off the Tigers in 10 innings on Thursday.

Sanchez finished 2-for-5 on the afternoon, saving his best hit for last. In a 5-5 game in the 10th inning, the White Sox loaded the bases on a walk, a hit batsman, and an infield single with two outs against Joba Chamberlain to bring up Sanchez. The second baseman delivered, tripling to right field to bring in three runs, each proving important as the Tigers would score twice in the bottom half before coming up just short. The 22-year-old has otherwise not done well at the plate, batting .169/.214/.229 with nine RBI in 128 plate appearances.
Thu, Jun 25, 2015 05:15:00 PM

Carlos Sanchez went 0-for-4 on Thursday and is hitting just .167 through 66 at-bats.

That's .167 with a 16/1 K/BB ratio and just three extra-base hits. Sanchez is probably the White Sox's best defensive option at second base, but he never figures to be very good offensively. The team would probably be better off going to Gordon Beckham.

Carlos Sanchez went 1-for-4 with a walk-off RBI single in the 10th inning as the White Sox defeated the Indians 2-1 on Monday.

The White Sox had runners on first and second with two outs when Sanchez stepped to the plate against Zach McAllister in the 10th inning. He slapped a line drive down the left field line to send the White Sox home happy. The 22-year-old has hit safely in four of five games since his promotion but he's yet to draw a walk and four of his five hits are singles.
