Brett Lawrie went deep for the second time this season as the White Sox lost to the Orioles on Friday.

His solo shot off Brad Brach in the seventh inning briefly pulled the White Sox even at 3-3, but wound up being the extent of their scoring. Lawrie finished the night 1-for-4 and is now hitting .264/.340/.414 with two bombs and eight RBI on the season.

Carlos Rodon was dealt his third loss of the season on Friday, allowing six runs (four earned) on eight hits over seven innings against the Orioles.

On the plus side, Rodon did manage to rack up seven strikeouts on the night while walking only one. He held the O's to only one earned run until the seventh inning, where a three-run homer by Nolan Reimold broke the game open. He'll head into Wednesday's start against the Red Sox with a 4.33 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and a 27/11 K/BB ratio across 27 innings.

Avisail Garcia tweaked his hamstring during the final out of Friday's loss to the Orioles.

Garcia will be re-evaluated on Saturday, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him sit out on Saturday as a precautionary measure. He collected an RBI triple in Friday's game before suffering the injury.

Rockies recalled RHP Tommy Kahnle from Triple-A Charlotte.

Kahnle held a 3.00 ERA and 12/3 K/BB ratio over his first nine relief innings for Charlotte. He's taking Daniel Webb's (elbow) spot in the bullpen.

White Sox placed RHP Daniel Webb on the 15-day disabled list with a right flexor strain.

He apparent injured his elbow in his first appearance with the big club this season on Thursday. Webb will be sidelined for a lengthy period of time.

Tyler Saladino has been dealing with some back tightness of late.

It helps explain why he hasn't started a game since Sunday, although he did make an appearance late in Thursday's contest. Saladino has played a decent amount this season as the White Sox try to keep Jimmy Rollins fresh. The back ailment doesn't seem to be a big deal, although the Sox didn't call up Carlos Sanchez for some more infield protection.

Todd Frazier hit a two-run home run in Thursday's loss to the Orioles.

The homer, his sixth of the season, was also his only hit in four at-bats. His six home runs have buoyed what has otherwise been a fairly pedestrian start to his White Sox career. Frazier is batting .236/.296/.472 with 15 RBI and 11 runs scored on the year.
Apr 28 - 10:51 PM

John Danks continued to struggle in a loss to the Orioles on Thursday, allowing nine hits and six runs over five innings.

Chris Davis and Mark Trumbo went deep off the lefty, who also walked two while striking out four. Danks is now responsible for four of the White Sox' seven losses this season. After Thursday, Danks owns a 7.25 ERA and 1.75 WHIP, and he's struck out 16 while walking 11 in 22 1/3 innings to date. He'll look to get in the win column Wednesday against the Red Sox.
Apr 28 - 10:40 PM

White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Thursday that David Robertson is expected to rejoin the team on Sunday.

Robertson was placed on the bereavement list. Ventura named Nate Jones, Matt Albers, and Zach Duke as closer options depending on the situation.
Apr 28 - 5:38 PM

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

Sanchez is a .229/.268/.321 career hitter in 524 major league plate appearances. He's not fantasy-relevant.
Apr 28 - 2:14 PM

White Sox placed RHP David Robertson on the bereavement list.

Robertson will be away from the club for 3-7 days following a death in the family. Nate Jones has been excellent in a setup role this season for the White Sox and should slide seamlessly into a fill-in closer role.
Apr 28 - 2:13 PM

White Sox OF prospect Mason Robbins hit for the cycle Wednesday in High-A Winston-Salem's loss to Lynchburg.

Robbins' three-run homer off Hillcats left-hander Sean Brady in the fourth inning marked his first home run of the year. He's contributed seven hits in his last 13 at-bats, raising his average from .178 to .259. The cycle was Winston-Salem's second of the season. Gerson Montilla accomplished the same feat in a game last Friday. Prior to that, no Winston-Salem player had completed the cycle since 2008.

Jose Quintana spun a gem in Wednesday's win over the Blue Jays, striking out 10 in six scoreless innings to pick up his third win.

Quintana has been one of the best under-the-radar pitchers in fantasy baseball in recent years, with only his low win totals suppressing his fantasy value. He now has three wins, a 9.39 K/9 strikeout rate, and a 1.47 ERA in 30 2/3 innings. He's not going to remain under-the-radar very often with those types of numbers. The lefty will look to continue his brilliant month with next week's home start against the Red Sox.
Apr 27 - 11:36 PM

White Sox recalled RHP Daniel Webb from Triple-A Charlotte.

Webb posted a 6.30 ERA and 22/22 K/BB ratio over 30 innings last season for Chicago and was one of the first cuts from camp this spring. He'll pitch in low-leverage situations in what will likely be a short stay.
Apr 27 - 2:34 PM

White Sox optioned RHP Miguel Gonzalez to Triple-A Charlotte.

Gonzalez got lit up for 11 hits and five runs over 5 1/3 innings in his White Sox debut Monday against the Blue Jays. It was a tough first assignment for the 31-year-old right-hander, who signed a minor league contract with Chicago on April 3 after getting cut by the Orioles at the end of spring training. He'll get another look eventually, whether it's with the White Sox or another club.
