Tim Anderson went 3-for-5 with a homer, three RBI and two runs scored in the White Sox' 13-6 beatdown of the Rays on Tuesday.

Anderson did damage with each of his three hits, collecting an RBI single in the first inning before swatting a run-scoring double in the second. He then capped it off with a solo shot, his eighth of the season, in the eighth inning. It's been a successful rookie campaign for the 23-year-old, who is hitting .278/.300/.411 with those eight homers, 28 RBI, 54 runs scored and 10 steals in 94 games overall.

Adam Eaton went 2-for-5 with an RBI single, a stolen base and two runs scored in a win over the Rays on Tuesday.

The 27-year-old is having a year remarkably similar to his productive 2015 season. Through Tuesday, Eaton is batting .284/.361/.431 with 14 homers, 59 RBI, 87 runs scored and 13 steals; last season, Eaton hit .287/.361/.431 with 14 homers, 56 RBI, 98 runs scored and 18 steals. It's not overwhelming in any particular category, but Eaton is proving to be a solid five-category contributor for fantasy purposes.

Leury Garcia went 2-for-4 with a triple, a three-run home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Rays.

Both the triple and the dinger were the first in 13 games for Garcia, who was recalled in early September after spending the year with the club's Triple-A affiliate. Garcia had some prospect juice a few years back and was acquired by the Sox in a deal with the Rangers for Alex Rios in 2013, but he hasn't been able to carve out a meaningful role with the big club in recent seasons. He'll continue to be a complementary player going forward.
Sep 28 - 1:28 AM

Chris Sale allowed three runs over seven innings against the Rays on Tuesday to earn his 17th win of the season.

Sale gave up eight hits while striking out seven in the victory. The southpaw is seventh in the American League with his 3.21 ERA and ranks third with his 227 strikeouts, and with the Cy Young race being wide open it's conceivable that Sale could find his name at or near the top of a lot of writers' lists when it's all said and done. The 27-year-old will have one more shot at making a good impression when he faces off against the Twins on Sunday.
Sep 28 - 1:20 AM

James Shields held the Rays to one run in six innings Monday to improve to 6-18 on the season.

It won't be a 20-loss season for Shields, thanks in part to the Rays starting four-ninths of a major league lineup tonight. Seriously. Catcher Curt Casali, who has hit .147 in 143 at-bats against right-handers this season, was the designated hitter. The designated hitter!
Sep 27 - 12:05 AM

Justin Morneau went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer and three RBI against the Rays on Monday.

Morneau came back pretty strong in his return from elbow surgery, but he entered tonight hitting just .215/.255/.333 with eight RBI in his previous 27 games, leaving him with a .709 OPS overall. The White Sox have nothing to play for right now, but Morneau could use a big final week to entice a team to give him a DH job next year.
Sep 26 - 11:57 PM

Carlos Rodon put together the best outing of his career Sunday, recording 11 strikeouts over eight shutout innings in a 3-0 win over the Indians.

He walked three batters but surrendered only two singles on the day. Rodon has certainly flashed brilliance at times in his two big league seasons, but rarely has he put everything together as he did in this one. He had thrown 108 pitches through his eight frames, which is the only reason he didn't get a shot at his first shutout. Rodon will get the Twins on Friday to close out his regular season.
Sep 25 - 4:17 PM

David Robertson struck out the side in the ninth inning to record a save in Sunday's win over the Indians.

All three punchouts were of the swinging variety, as Robertson went through the heart of the Indians' order to protect a three-run lead. The White Sox' closer has now converted 36 saves in 43 chances this season.
Sep 25 - 4:09 PM

Todd Frazier scored two runs and stole a pair of bases in Sunday's win over the Indians.

He also singled and drew a walk. Frazier is sporting a .226 batting average this season, but with 39 home runs, 96 RBI, 86 runs and 14 stolen bases, fantasy owners aren't going to complain.
Sep 25 - 4:06 PM

Adam Eaton (head) remained out of the White Sox' lineup Sunday.

Eaton managed to avoid a concussion but is still very sore after colliding with the outfield wall on Friday. He'll be re-evaluated Monday. The White Sox have Leury Garcia in center field and Avisail Garcia in right Sunday.
Sep 25 - 11:03 AM

Jose Quintana held the Indians to a single run in six innings during Saturday's 8-1 victory.

He struck out only two batters, walked three and gave up six hits to earn the win. He was relieved after throwing an inefficient 103 pitches in his six frames. He advances to 13-11 with a 3.21 ERA after 31 starts. Quintana has recorded 174 strikeouts versus 48 walks in 202 innings. He has been amazingly consistent throughout his five seasons. He has a career 46-45 record and 3.41 ERA in 945 innings.
Sep 24 - 11:58 PM

Jose Abreu went 3-for-5 and drove in a run during Saturday's victory over the Indians.

He smacked an RBI single in the first inning and was thrown out trying to stretch it into a double. He added a couple more singles later in the game and is now batting .299/.353/.480 with 25 homers and 97 RBI. His power output is down a bit this season despite home runs being way up around the league. Abreu is among a small group of players who can provide high batting averages without sacrificing home run power.
Sep 24 - 11:43 PM

Todd Frazier went 2-for-5 with a home run and scored twice in a win over the Indians on Saturday.

The solo longball in the sixth inning was his 39th round-tripper of the season. Frazier's .225 batting average is painful but he is good everywhere else. He has 96 RBI and 84 runs scored and has even stolen 12 bases.
Sep 24 - 11:37 PM

White Sox manager Robin Ventura expects Tyler Saladino (back) will have his back checked out when the team returns home on Monday.

He was scratched from Friday's lineup with back discomfort and is expected to miss the entire weekend series in Cleveland. It's been a rough injury month for Saladino, who just returned after missing three games with a calf issue earlier this week. The 27-year-old has hit .282 this year with eight homers, 38 RBI and 11 steals.
Sep 24 - 8:41 PM

Adam Eaton (concussion) is not in the White Sox lineup Saturday against the Indians.

Eaton may have suffered a concussion when he crashed into the center wall in Friday night's loss. Leury Garcia will handle center field duties on Saturday while batting ninth against Cleveland right-hander Cody Anderson. With Chicago out of the playoff race, there's no reason to rush Eaton back for the final week of the regular season.
