Matt Davidson was scratched from the White Sox starting lineup on Thursday due to flu-like symptoms.

Willy Garcia took his place in the lineup and will bat seventh against Dallas Keuchel and the Astros. Davidson is considered day-to-day.

Rymer Liriano (paternity) appeared as a defensive sub Wednesday night against the Astros.

Liriano was excused from the White Sox for a handful of games following the birth of his son. The 26-year-old outfielder has batted just .200/.259/.360 in 27 plate appearances this season at the major league level.
Sep 21 - 9:23 AM

Yoan Moncada hit a two-run homer off the Astros' Brad Peacock during Wednesday's game.

It was the only hit Peacock allowed in six innings of work. Moncada is hitting .380 with four homers, 13 runs scored and a couple of steals in his last 11 games.
Sep 21 - 12:42 AM

Avisail Garcia was removed from Wednesday's game due to stomach discomfort.

Garcia will rest for the remainder of the night, but it's likely not something that will cost him significant time. Consider him day-to-day.
Sep 20 - 9:29 PM

Asivail Garcia was removed in the third inning of Wednesday's game against the Astros with an apparent injury.

Alen Hanson replaced Garcia in right field. The White Sox should pass along an update soon.

Lucas Giolito was charged with just two runs across 6 2/3 innings Tuesday but took a loss against the Astros.

He struck out just three, and the lack of punchouts have been the only thing that’s been a bit disappointing from Giolito’s showing with the White Sox so far (he’s whiffed just 29 over 38 1/3 innings). However, you can’t argue with holding the American League West champs to two runs over 6 2/3 frames in their home park. Four out of his last five outings have been quality starts. Giolito takes on the Royals next.
Sep 19 - 11:26 PM

Yoan Moncada went 3-for-4 with a run scored and added a stolen base Tuesday in Houston.

All three hits were singles, and Moncada followed his second base knock in the third inning with his third steal. The exciting youngster is now batting .432 over his last eight games and two of his stolen bases have come over that stretch. It's hard to call Moncada a safe fantasy option, but we know the talent is there and he's scorching hot.
Sep 19 - 11:17 PM

Tim Anderson went 1-for-4 with a double in a 12-0 loss to the Tigers on Sunday.

Anderson had just one hit, but it was a notable one, as it broke up Detroit hurler Matt Boyd's no-hitter with two outs in the ninth. He's been much better in the second half, and now has his line up to .262/.281/.414 on the 2017 campaign.
Sep 17 - 4:17 PM

Dylan Covey allowed five runs in 3 2/3 innings of work in a loss to the White Sox on Sunday.

In hindsight, Covey would have had to pitch a heck of a game with Matt Boyd blanking the White Sox lineup, but it was still a disappointing effort. He gave up seven hits, walked four, and only struck out three. His ERA now sits at 8.18. He'll have a chance to lower that on Saturday against Kansas City.
Sep 17 - 4:05 PM

White Sox sent C Alfredo Gonzalez outright to Double-A Birmingham.

He's now off the 40-man roster. Gonzalez hit only .208/.306/.301 with four homers for Birmingham this season.
Sep 17 - 2:27 PM

Reynaldo Lopez yielded four runs over seven innings in a 10-4 win over the Tigers on Saturday.

Lopez hung in there after a three-run second inning, ultimately finishing with his longest start in the majors. He clearly didn’t have his best stuff, allowing seven hits while walking two batters. He notched only one strikeout and didn’t get it until his final inning of work. Lopez has now fanned just four batters over his last three starts, which isn't ideal from a fantasy perspective. He’ll bring a 4.84 ERA into a start against the Royals next week.
Sep 16 - 9:56 PM

Tim Anderson stayed hot Saturday against the Tigers by going 4-for-5 with two steals and two runs scored.

Anderson had three singles and a double. He’s batting .473 (26-for-55) over his last 12 games and has swiped seven bases in that time. Anderson stole only six bases over his previous 121 games this season. His speed isn’t in question, but it's about time he started taking advantage of it.
Sep 16 - 9:55 PM

Nick Delmonico went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer in Saturday’s victory over the Tigers.

Delmonico took Myles Jaye deep in the first inning to get the scoring started for Chicago. The 25-year-old started strong upon his call-up to the majors on August 1, but he’s batting just .194 (6-for-31) with two homers in 10 games since returning from the disabled list earlier this month.
Sep 16 - 9:55 PM

Yoan Moncada finished 2-for-6 with a two-run single and a run scored against the Tigers on Saturday.

The White Sox pounded out 17 hits in the victory, with six members of the starting lineup accumulating at least two hits. While he struggled prior to landing on the disabled list, Moncada has now hit safely in each of his last eight games while batting .395 (15-for-38) with three homers, one triple, seven RBI, one stolen base, and 11 runs scored. If he can keep it going, he’s going to be a trendy breakout pick in fantasy drafts next spring.
Sep 16 - 9:54 PM

Matt Davidson socked his 25th homer of the season — a solo shot — in Saturday’s win over the Tigers.

Davidson went 1-for-5 on the night. This was just his second homer since August 27. The power has been nice, but he’s batting just .225 with a .268 on-base percentage and a 154/19 K/BB ratio. He’s largely been all-or-nothing.
