White Sox signed OF Luis Robert to a $26 million contract.

The White Sox will hold a press conference on Saturday to announce the signing. The 19-year-old is considered an elite-level talent and a terrific get for the White Sox.

White Sox recalled OF Adam Engel from Triple-A Charlotte.

It's the first time in the big leagues for the 25-year-old outfielder. He's hitting just .221/.312/.463 with eight homers and 16 RBI in 42 games at Triple-A this season.
May 27 - 11:12 AM

White Sox placed INF Tyler Saladino on the 10-day disabled list with back spasms.

It's an injury that developed during the week and has already caused Saladino to miss a few games. It's unclear how long he'll be sidelined, but it could be longer than the minimum 10 days.

Melky Cabrera blasted a three-run homer on Friday, powering the White Sox to an 8-2 victory over the visiting Tigers.

Cabrera's three-run shot in the eighth inning capped off the scoring in the ballgame. He also added an RBI single in the sixth inning, finishing the night 3-for-5 with a pair of runs scored and four RBI. For the season, the veteran outfielder is hitting .251/.301/.357 with four homers and 25 RBI.
May 27 - 2:58 AM

Avisail Garcia went 3-for-5 with a double and three RBI as the White Sox topped the Tigers in their series-opener in Chicago on Friday.

Garcia got the White Sox on the board, delivering a bases-clearing three-run double in the third inning. He's in the midst of an outstanding season, slashing a robust .341/.385/.576 with eight homers and 37 RBI.
May 27 - 2:55 AM

Matt Davidson clubbed his ninth home run of the season in Friday's victory over the Tigers.

Davidson blasted a solo homer off of Blaine Hardy in the sixth inning, increasing the White Sox' advantage to 4-2. He also singled, finishing the night 2-for-4. He has been a nice addition to the lineup this season, slashing .257/.305/.541 with nine homers and 24 RBI.
May 27 - 2:53 AM

Mike Pelfrey punched out a season-high seven batters over five innings in Friday's victory over the Tigers.

The veteran right-hander allowed two runs (one earned) on four hits and a walk. He had struck out just 11 batters through 29 2/3 innings on the season entering play on Friday, so the strikeout explosion came out of nowhere. With this fine effort, he now owns a respectable 4.41 ERA and 1.21 WHIP on the season. He still isn't a recommended fantasy option for Wednesday's start against the Red Sox.
May 27 - 2:51 AM

James Shields (lat) will throw a three-inning simulated game on Monday.

Shields threw another bullpen session Friday and said he felt better than he did during Wednesday's session. The hope is that he'll be ready for a rehab assignment after Monday's sim game.
May 26 - 4:00 PM

White Sox second base prospect Yoan Moncada has been activated from Triple-A Charlotte's 7-day disabled list.

Moncada was placed on the DL on May 18 with a left thumb injury. The top prospect will return to a .331/.401/.504 batting line with six homers and 10 steals through 34 games.
May 26 - 2:59 PM

White Sox recalled RHP Tyler Danish from Triple-A Charlotte.

Danish will start the second game of Friday's doubleheader against the Tigers, and it's possible he'll be needed for more starts with Dylan Covey (oblique) out. The righty has put up a 3.15 ERA and 23/13 K/BB ratio over 45 2/3 frames at Charlotte this season and is a poor streaming option.
May 26 - 12:50 PM

White Sox recalled RHP Juan Minaya from Triple-A Charlotte.

Minaya holds a 1.23 ERA and 11/4 K/BB ratio over 14 2/3 relief innings at Charlotte this season. He'll be used in the middle of games.
May 26 - 12:48 PM

White Sox placed RHP Dylan Covey on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to May 24, with a left oblique strain.

Covey suffered the injury during Tuesday's start. It's unclear at this point how much time he might miss, but oblique injuries almost always require a longer than minimum DL stay. Tyler Danish is making a start during Friday's doubleheader and it's possible he'll stay around to fill Covey's rotation spot.
May 26 - 12:47 PM

White Sox pitching prospect Lucas Giolito threw a seven-inning no-hitter for Triple-A Charlotte on Thursday.

It was the first game of a doubleheader against Syracuse. Giolito issued three walks on the day and also recorded three strikeouts. It was a much-needed gem from the big righty, as Giolito entered the day with a 6.41 ERA and 22 walks over 39 1/3 innings.
May 26 - 9:22 AM

Tyler Danish will start the second game of Friday's doubleheader against the Tigers.

The first game will be started by right-hander Mike Pelfrey. Danish made three appearances for the White Sox in 2016 but this will be his first big league start. The 22-year-old carries a respectable 3.15 ERA in eight outings for Triple-A Charlotte this season, though his low strikeout rate (4.53 K/9) is a cause for concern.
May 25 - 6:24 PM

Jose Abreu went 4-for-5 with a two-run home run and three total RBI in Wednesday's 8-6 loss to the Diamondbacks.

Abreu fell a triple short of the cycle in this monster showing. He drove in his runs with a no-doubt two-run homer to right which traveled an estimated 441 feet in the sixth inning and an RBI single in the seventh. Through 44 games played, the slugger is working to a .291/.347/.531 triple-slash with 10 homers and 27 RBI. Five of those 10 home runs have come in his last 10 games.
