CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that teams have "checked back in" with the White Sox on Jeff Samardzija, but it's "still not that likely" he's traded.

The White Sox sit only 3.5 games out of a Wild Card spot and appear poised to hold their assets and possibly even add to the club. FOX Sports' Jon Morosi says the club is keeping an open mind and hasn't completely ruled out dealing Samardzija. The righty's fantasy owners surely would prefer a trade given the home park he's in and the poor defense behind him. The good news is that he's been really good of late in spite of those factors, posting a 2.66 ERA over his last eight starts.

Chris Sale was lit up by the Red Sox on Thursday, surrendering seven runs and 12 hits in five innings.

That's the most hits he's even given up in a start. It follows an outing just 11 days ago in which he gave up 11 hits. Still, we wouldn't expect that this is the start of a trend for Sale. He still struck out seven and didn't give up any homers tonight.

White Sox acquired INF Justin Sellers from Pirates for a player to be named later.

With Micah Johnson forced to the disabled list at Triple-A Charlotte, Sellers will provide versatility and insurance.

Jose Quintana held the Red Sox to two runs in 6 1/3 innings to pick up a win on Wednesday.

Quintana got a month's worth of run support tonight, as the White Sox busted out for nine runs to give him his sixth win of the season. It's the first time they've done so well in one of his starts since July 2014. With a shutout of the Indians last time out, Quintana has won back-to-back starts for the first time this season.

Adam Eaton went 3-for-6 with a leadoff homer against the Red Sox on Wednesday.

Eaton has nine homers in 93 games this year after hitting one in 123 games last year. He's been one of the keys to the White Sox's turnaround of late, spending the last two months as one of the AL's best leadoff men after spending the first two months as one of the worst.

White Sox recalled INF/OF Leury Garcia from Triple-A Charlotte.

Garcia has a hit in his lone plate appearance in the majors this season. He's assumed Emilio Bonifacio's (oblique) utility role.
Jul 29 - 3:17 PM

White Sox placed INF/OF Emilio Bonifacio on the 15-day disabled list with a left oblique strain.

Bonifacio suffered the injury during Tuesday's game and will need a few weeks of downtime. Leury Garcia has replaced him on the roster.

Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press hears that the White Sox will be buyers at the trade deadline.

This comes on the heels of FOX Sports' Jon Morosi saying that he thinks it's likelier that the Tigers trade David Price than the White Sox trade Jeff Samardzija. Chicago has won six straight to creep back into the Wild Card race and it appears they'll be content with a compensation pick for Samardzija rather than a package of prospects.
Jul 29 - 11:03 AM

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi thinks there's a "better chance" that the Tigers trade David Price than the White Sox trade Jeff Samardzija.

The White Sox suddenly have a better record than the Tigers after winning six straight and might decide to make a run at a Wild Card spot. It's certainly still possible another club makes an offer for Samardzija that they can't refuse, but the righty has pitched really well of late and Chicago could just settle on receiving draft pick compensation for him if he leaves as a free agent.

Jose Abreu went 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBI as the White Sox jumped on the Red Sox 9-4 on Tuesday.

Abreu had three of the team's 14 hits on the evening, hitting a two-run homer in the sixth before adding an RBI double in the eighth. The homer was his 16th of the year, giving him 56 RBI. The three-hit night extended his modest hitting streak to eight games while raising his overall line to .296/.349/.489.
Jul 28 - 10:44 PM

Melky Cabrera continued to hit the cover off the ball Tuesday, finishing 4-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in a win over the Red Sox.

Cabrera has been the hottest hitter in baseball since the All-Star break, going 21-for-52 (.404) with multi-hit games in each of his last six contests. On Thursday, three of his four hits went for extra bases, as he doubled twice and tripled in the win. Cabrera's torrid stretch has his line up to .281/.319/.392 after a brutal first half.
Jul 28 - 10:28 PM

Geovany Soto homered, had three RBI and reached base all five times in Tuesday's win over the Red Sox.

Soto had a two-run double in the first inning before hitting a solo homer in the seventh. He also walked three times in the game. Soto is hitting .248/.336/.479 with seven homers through 51 games.
Jul 28 - 10:18 PM

Jeff Samardzija allowed four runs over eight innings in Tuesday's win over the Red Sox.

Samardzija cruised through most of the first eight innings, allowing only two runs, but he stumbled trying to close out the game in the ninth. The right-hander allowed a run and another inherited runner scored after he left, depriving him of a quality start and marring his overall line on the night. Samardzija gave up seven hits and a walk in the game, striking out three in what could be his final start with the White Sox. If he's still in a Sox uniform come Sunday, Samardzija will take on the Yankees.
Jul 28 - 10:15 PM

Emilio Bonifacio exited Tuesday's game against the Red Sox with a left rib injury.

Bonifacio was nailed with a ground ball. He'll be re-evaluated Wednesday.
Jul 28 - 8:32 PM

David Robertson allowed a run but still got his 22nd save of the season, finishing out Monday's 10-8 win against the Red Sox.

It seemed like an easy ninth for the right-hander after getting two quick ground outs. But he walked Daniel Nava, who advanced to second base on fielder's indifference, before giving up an RBI single to Pablo Sandoval. That brought the winning run to the plate, and he walked Alejandro De Aza. Thankfully for him, he got Ryan Hanigan to ground out to end the threat. Robertson has allowed runs in back-to-back appearances but is now 22-for-27 in save situations this year with a 2.63 ERA and a 58/10 K/BB ratio in 41 innings.
