White Sox optioned RHP Junior Guerra to Triple-A Charlotte.

Guerra surrendered three runs over four relief innings during his time with the big club. He'll return to a 3.00 ERA at Charlotte.

White Sox activated LHP Dan Jennings from the 15-day disabled list.

Jennings missed nearly a month with a neck injury. He holds a disappointing 7.83 ERA over 22 appearances this season for the White Sox.

Tyler Flowers hit a solo home run in the 11th inning to lead the White Sox to a 2-1 win over the Cardinals on Tuesday.

Flowers took reliever Miguel Socolovich deep to break a 1-1 tie. The catcher finished 2-for-5 in the game. The homer was his sixth of the season and his second in as many games. Flowers is hitting .217/.268/.369 while splitting time behind the dish for the Sox.

Jose Abreu went 2-for-5 with an RBI single in a win over the Cardinals on Tuesday.

Abreu's run-scoring single got the White Sox on the board in the third inning. Runs batted in have been hard to come by for Abreu of late, as Tuesday's was just his second since June 13. The first baseman is hitting .293/.344/.493 with 13 homers, 42 RBI and 43 runs scored on the season.

David Robertson got into a bit of trouble but escaped unscathed Tuesday, pitching a scoreless 10th inning to earn the save against the Cardinals.

Robertson got two quick outs before back-to-back singles by Jason Heyward and Yadier Molina made things interesting. Robertson got Xavier Scruggs to ground out to end the game and the threat, though, to pick up his 16th save of the season. It hasn't all been smooth lately, but Robertson owns a 2.76 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 45/7 K/BB ratio and is the unquestioned closer for the Sox.

Chris Sale struck out 12 batters over eight innings Tuesday, allowing one run in a no-decision against the Cardinals.

Stop us if you've heard this one before, but Sale deserved better for his effort. The start was the third this season in which he's gone eight innings allowing one or zero runs without getting the victory. Sale gave up six hits and a walk in the contest, with a Randal Grichuk home run doing the only damage. The southpaw remains 6-4 with a 2.87 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 141/22 K/BB ratio through 15 starts. He'll hope for a better result Monday against the Blue Jays.

White Sox pitching prospect Terance Marin hurled seven shutout innings Tuesday for Triple-A Charlotte.

Onelki Garcia blew the save, denying Marin what would have been his fifth victory of the season. Two of those wins came during a 10-game stint with Tijuana. Marin hasn't allowed a run in his last 29 innings. The five strikeouts he recorded Tuesday were his most since joining Charlotte on June 8.

Jeff Samardzija was terrific for most of Sunday but lost it late in a loss to the Tigers.

"Shark" dominated the Tigers for seven shutout innings but came apart in the eighth. Or, rather, he was hung out to dry by White Sox manager Robin Ventura in the eighth. After hitting Ian Kinsler with a bases-loaded pitch, Samardzija looked to empty the tank when he bounced back to strike out Miguel Cabrera. Ventura stuck with the righty, though, and Victor Martinez cleared the bases with a double. It's been a maddeningly inconsistent season for Samardzija, who now has a 4.56 ERA and just one win over his last seven starts. He'll take on the Orioles next weekend.
Jun 28 - 4:31 PM

Melky Cabrera went 3-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Tigers.

Batting out of the cleanup spot, Cabrera took David Price out to left field in the fourth inning. He then added singles in his next two trips to the plate. The longball was Cabrera's first since May 6, although he's been heating up at the plate of late with 12 hits in his last 27 at-bats.
Jun 28 - 4:20 PM

The White Sox will skip Carlos Rodon's next turn in the rotation.

It's a move designed to keep the left-hander's innings down. Rodon will rejoin the club's rotation next week versus the Blue Jays.
Jun 28 - 11:14 AM

Jose Abreu is batting second for the White Sox in Saturday's game against the Tigers.

There's no real downside to moving Abreu up in the order, and there's a chance that it could wind up in him getting an extra at-bat in the ballgame, though his RBI chances could take a small hit. The 28-year-old slugger is hitting .290/.341/.493 with 13 homers and 41 RBI on the season.
Jun 27 - 1:00 PM

Matt Albers (finger) worked a scoreless inning in his first minor league rehab game with Triple-A Charlotte on Friday.

Albers needed just 10 pitches to complete the inning, which included a strikeout. He'll need at least one additional appearance before he's ready to rejoin the White Sox. Expect to see him back in the bullpen in Chicago next week.
Jun 27 - 9:50 AM

Adam Eaton led off his second consecutive game with a home run on Friday, though it went for naught in a losing effort against the Tigers.

It was his lone hit in five at-bats on the night. The White Sox leadoff man has picked up the pace offensively in recent weeks and now sports a .252/.319/.383 slash line to go along with five homers and 14 RBI.
Jun 26 - 10:20 PM

Jose Quintana logged a quality start in a no-decision against the Tigers on Friday, surrendering three runs on 11 hits over his six innings of work.

Quintana struck out three on the night and didn't walk a batter. The Tigers struck for single runs against him in the first, fourth and fifth innings, but the southpaw was able to put out any fires and prevent any big rallies. He'll look to get back in the win column when he does battle against the Orioles on Friday.
Jun 26 - 10:18 PM

White Sox sent RHP Hector Noesi outright to Triple-A Charlotte.

Noesi cleared waivers after being designated for assignment and will remain in the organization. He's posted a 6.89 ERA and 1.78 WHIP in five starts and five relief appearances this season for the White Sox.
