John Danks lost his ninth game of the season despite allowing only two runs in six innings on Thursday against the Indians.

Danks was out-dueled by Carlos Carrasco, who allowed one fewer run and recorded two more outs. The lefty gave up five hits and walked two while striking out five. Though Danks has pitched better as of late, he still sports an unseemly 4.88 ERA, a 1.48 WHIP, and a 109/63 K/BB ratio. He'll take on the Twins on the road on Wednesday.

Chris Bassitt will be called up from Double-A Birmingham to start the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Tigers.

Chris Sale will start in the first game. Bassitt, who will be making his major league debut, has compiled a 2.08 ERA and 49/17 K/BB ratio in 43 1/3 innings over eight starts and one relief appearance this season between rookie ball and Double-A. He's not a fantasy option.
Aug 28 - 5:20 PM

Hector Noesi surrendered two runs in seven innings Wednesday in defeating the Indians.

We wouldn't necessarily say that Noesi outpitched Corey Kluber -- that was an awfully depleted Cleveland lineup he was facing -- but he did come away with the win after allowing six hits, walking one and striking out five. It was his first career win in four starts against the Indians, and he improved to 8-9 with a 4.75 ERA for the season.

After Javy Guerra did all of the dirty work, Zach Putnam got a one-out save against the Indians on Wednesday.

Guerra pitched 1 2/3 scoreless innings, but after a one-out single and a HBP in the ninth, he was lifted in favor of Putnam, who got Chris Dickerson to pop out to end it. With Jacob Petricka struggling of late, Putnam is a candidate for more saves. It'll probably come down to whether Petricka bounces back in his next couple of outings.
Aug 27 - 11:59 PM

Adam Eaton doubled, tripled and scored twice from the leadoff spot Wednesday against the Indians.

Eaton was playing well before suffering a strained oblique, and he's come back strong in his first two games, going 3-for-8 with three runs scored.
Aug 27 - 11:55 PM

Moises Sierra (oblique) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Charlotte on Monday.

He should remain there for a few more days before being activated when rosters expand. Sierra has batted .236/.265/.345 with two homers over 84 games between the Blue Jays and White Sox this season.
Aug 27 - 9:42 AM

Avisail Garcia went 2-for-5 with a double and two RBI in a loss to the Indians on Tuesday.

Garcia did some early damage, delivering a two-run single in the first inning. Garcia also struck out twice, giving him 12 strikeouts in 33 at-bats since coming off the disabled list. Owners have to live with that frustration for his production -- Garcia has three doubles, two home runs and nine RBI in those nine games as well. The 23-year-old is hitting .254/.304/.492 overall.
Aug 27 - 12:12 AM

Alexei Ramirez went 2-for-5 with a home run, two runs scored and three RBI in Tuesday's loss to the Indians.

Ramirez hit a two-run home run off Indians starter T.J. House in the fifth inning. The homer was his 13th of the year and his second in the last two games. A resurgent August after a down couple of months has Ramirez' season line back up to .286/.319/.424.
Aug 27 - 12:07 AM

Jose Quintana was shelled for six runs on nine hits over five innings in Tuesday's no-decision against the Indians.

The Indians got to Quintana early, putting up three runs before the first inning was over. They would score in two more innings before the left-hander exited. It's a continuation of a troubling trend for Quintana, who has allowed at least four runs in each of his last four starts. His ERA is up to 3.48, and he won't have an easy time with the Tigers in his next start Sunday.
Aug 27 - 12:04 AM

White Sox activated OF Adam Eaton from the 15-day disabled list.

Eaton was cleared to return after going 3-for-10 with a double, an RBI, and a stolen base this weekend in two rehab games at Triple-A Charlotte. He was playing well prior to his oblique injury earlier this month and is worth picking up in leagues where he was dropped.
Aug 26 - 12:36 PM

Adam Eaton (oblique) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday.

Eaton went 3-for-10 with two runs scored this weekend in two rehab games at Triple-A Charlotte. The dynamic 25-year-old outfielder has been out since August 9 with a strained right oblique. He was on a massive hot streak before the injury and should be a good source of fantasy value down the stretch.
Aug 25 - 2:15 PM

White Sox optioned OF Jordan Danks to Triple-A Charlotte.

Adam Eaton is due back from the disabled list on Tuesday, so Danks was no longer need as outfield depth. Danks has hit .190/.270/.278 this year in 89 plate appearances at the major league level.
Aug 25 - 2:03 PM

White Sox shortstop prospect Tim Anderson went 4-for-6 with a double for Double-A Birmingham on Saturday.

Anderson has gone 7-for-9 with two doubles over his first two games in Double-A. He will likely return to Double-A to start 2015, but the White Sox are known for their willingness to push talented players up the organizational ladder. Anderson profiles as a solid defensive shortstop who hits .290 with 5-10 home runs and 20-plus doubles.
Aug 24 - 10:48 AM

Scott Carroll was sacked with his eighth loss of the season after allowing five runs (four earned) in six innings as the White Sox fell to the Yankees on Saturday.

Carroll's tough season continues. Along with three walks, the right-hander allowed seven hits, four of which went for extra bases, and did not record a strikeout. He now carries an ugly 5.05 ERA with a 1.53 WHIP and a 50/38 K/BB ratio. Carroll will look for improvement in his next start at home against the Tigers on Friday.
Aug 23 - 4:22 PM

White Sox prospect shortstop Tim Anderson went 3-for-3 with a double and a sacrifice in his debut with Double-A Birmingham on Friday.

Anderson missed roughly seven weeks after fracturing his wrist and, after six rehab games in the rookie-level Arizona League, was promoted to Double-A. His introduction to the Double-A Southern League was a smashing success, and he will likely return there to start 2015. The White Sox are notorious for their quick promotions, and Anderson could take over at shortstop should the White Sox decide to decline Alexei Ramirez's 2016 option.
