Melky Cabrera went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's loss to the Indians.

With the White Sox trailing 4-1 in the eighth inning, Cabrera made matters slightly more interesting with his two-run home run off reliever Bryan Shaw. Alas, no more runs were to cross the plate and Cabrera's squad fell by a score of 4-3. The veteran outfielder is slashing .294/.362/.417 with nine doubles, three homers and 20 RBI over 180 at-bats.

Jose Quintana turned in a quality start in Wednesday's loss to the Indians, surrendering three runs on five hits over six innings.

Quintana struck out eight and walked just one on the afternoon. He has now tossed at least six innings in nine of his 10 starts. With Wednesday's quality start under his belt, he will carry a 2.22 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 60/12 K/BB ratio (65 innings) into a road tilt with the Mets next time he toes the rubber.

Jose Abreu went 3-for-4 with two doubles and a run scored in Tuesday's loss to the Indians.

Somewhat amazingly, the three-hit game was Abreu's first in 2016. It's indicative of the kind of year the 29-year-old has had through the first few months, as his good evening raised his line to a still-pedestrian .247/.317/.407. Perhaps a good night at the dish will get him rolling.
May 24 - 11:24 PM

Chris Sale took his first loss of the season in decisive fashion Tuesday, allowing six runs on seven hits over 3 1/3 innings against the Indians.

We knew Sale had to lose eventually, even if it seemed like he never would. Still, it was surprising to see him get lit up after he'd so thoroughly dominated through most of the season's first two months. Even on a night when he didn't have it -- he walked four after walking just 14 in his first nine starts -- Sale still managed to strike out seven. The southpaw is now 9-1 with a 2.26 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 69/14 K/BB ratio in 71 2/3 innings. He'll look to bounce back Sunday at the Royals.
May 24 - 11:09 PM

White Sox released 1B Travis Ishikawa.

Ishikawa was batting .201/.277/.344 through 175 plate appearances this season at Triple-A Charlotte. The 32-year-old will try to latch on with a new organization.
May 24 - 4:19 PM

Jimmy Rollins is out of the White Sox lineup Tuesday.

Rollins is batting just .230/.290/.349 in 32 games this season and will continue to get regular days off. Tyler Saladino will start at shortstop and hit ninth Tuesday versus Indians right-hander Josh Tomlin.

White Sox INF prospect Nick Delmonico launched two homers Monday in a win for Double-A Birmingham.

The 23-year-old has now gone deep five times in his last six games. He leads the Southern League with 10 homers and is second in RBI with 31. He also leads the league in batting average (.338), slugging percentage (.676) and OPS (1.073). Delmonico only needs three more homers to match his career-high set in 2013. Back then, he was in the Orioles' farm system playing for High-A Frederick.

Erik Johnson lost to the Indians after giving up five runs in 6 2/3 innings on Monday.

Johnson surrendered three homers tonight. He gave up two in his first spot start against the Red Sox on April 5. Overall, he's surrendered 19 homers in 98 innings as a major leaguer since debuting in 2013, and that's just not going to cut it.
May 24 - 12:18 AM

Jose Abreu went 0-for-4 in the nightcap and 1-for-9 overall in Monday's doubleheader against the Indians.

Abreu was dropped to the fifth spot in the lineup today, even though he entered the day with a decent .260/.337/.452 line in May (compared to .229/.303/.354 in April). He's surely better than this, but his value takes a hit for however long he hits fifth.
May 24 - 12:13 AM

White Sox optioned INF Carlos Sanchez to Triple-A Charlotte.

The move clears a spot for Erik Johnson to start the nightcap of Monday's doubleheader versus the Indians. Sanchez is 4-for-26 (.154) in 11 games with the White Sox this season and should be back at some point this summer.
May 23 - 8:57 PM

White Sox recalled RHP Erik Johnson from Triple-A Charlotte.

Johnson will start the second game of Monday's doubleheader against the Indians. The White Sox sent down Carlos Sanchez in a corresponding roster move.
May 23 - 8:53 PM

Mat Latos yielded three runs over six innings as the White Sox took the first game of Monday’s doubleheader against the Indians.

Latos struck out four and walked one. All the damage came via the home run ball, as he gave up a solo shot to Mike Napoli in the second inning before Marlon Byrd took him deep for a two-run blast in the fifth. It was the first time since April 24 that he had allowed fewer than four earned runs while completing at least six innings. While Latos improved to 6-1, he remains a shaky option in mixed fantasy leagues.
May 23 - 8:50 PM

David Robertson tossed a scoreless ninth inning Monday against the Indians for his 12th save of the season.

With the White Sox holding a one-run lead, Robertson walked Rajai Davis to begin the ninth inning. Davis eventually stole second base, but Robertson managed to strike out Michael Martinez before getting Carlos Santana to ground out to end it. The 31-year-old is tied for the AL lead with 12 saves to go along with a 0.96 ERA and 22/7 K/BB ratio over 18 2/3 innings.
May 23 - 8:49 PM

Brett Lawrie filled up the box score in the first game of Monday’s doubleheader against the Indians by going 2-for-2 with a three-run homer, two walks, a stolen base, and two runs scored.

His fifth-inning blast against Mike Clevinger was a no-doubter, as it traveled an estimated 417 feet. Lawrie has had a quiet may, but he’s up to six homers, 19 RBI, and three steals through 44 games. With a hitter-friendly stadium as the backdrop, he’s capable of being a useful middle infield option in mixed fantasy leagues.
May 23 - 8:49 PM

Todd Frazier went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, two walks, and two runs scored in Monday's 7-6 win over the Indians.

Frazier’s first-inning blast off Mike Clevinger traveled 418 feet. While the 30-year-old is batting just .236, he leads the American League with 14 home runs and is tied for third with 34 RBI.
