Hector Noesi fell to 0-4 on Monday against the Blue Jays after allowing five runs in seven innings of work.

The Jays scored four times in the first inning: twice on a Chris Colabello single and two more on a Justin Smoak home run. Josh Donaldson tacked on with a solo home run in the second, but Noesi settled down from there. He allowed five hits in total with three walks and four strikeouts. Noesi was re-inserted into the rotation after a spell in the bullpen, but now carries a 5.84 ERA with a 1.50 WHIP and a 20/14 K/BB ratio in 24 2/3 innings. He'll take the hill next in Houston to face the Astros.

Avisail Garcia is considered day-to-day after leaving Monday's game with more inflammation in his right knee.

Garcia had just returned to action on Sunday after missing two games with the ailment. He singled in his first at-bat Monday but then had to be taken out when the knee acted up on him again. It sets up as a sticky situation for fantasy owners, as Garcia's ailment doesn't appear bad enough to require a disabled list stint but he also might be in and out of the lineup.

Avisail Garcia exited Monday's game against the Blue Jays in the second inning with an apparent injury.

Garcia singled in his lone at-bat in the top of the frame but then was removed for defense in the bottom of the inning. The outfield has battled inflammation in his right knee of late, so it's safe to assume that's the issue here again. The White Sox should update his status soon.

Jose Abreu went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Twins.

Abreu hit his solo tater off of Kyle Gibson in the fourth inning. It would be the only run that the White Sox managed to score in the game. The dinger was Abreu's seventh and pushed his RBI total to 23. While he's not hitting at the monstrous level that he was in 2014, he's still posting a rock-solid .282/.349/.474 slash-line.
May 24 - 5:27 PM

Jose Quintana pitched abysmally in a loss to the Twins on Sunday, allowing seven runs (six earned) in six innings.

Quintana was plagued by two big innings, as the Twins scored four in the fourth inning and another three in the seventh (two of which were charged to his line). For the game, he struck out five and walked one while allowing seven hits. The loss moved his record to a dismal 2-5 and his 4.67 ERA and 1.35 WHIP aren't particularly encouraging. He'll try to pitch better when the White Sox take to the road against the Astros next Friday.

Avisail Garcia (knee) is back in the White Sox' lineup Sunday.

Garcia hasn't played since Thursday due to inflammation in his right knee, but he apparently feels well enough to give it a go in this one. The 23-year-old is hitting a nifty .319/.359/.451 with four homers this season.
May 24 - 12:21 PM

Chris Sale gave up four runs -- three earned -- over eight innings Saturday in a loss to the Twins.

Sale struck out 10 and walked just one batter, but the Twins tagged him for back-to-back homers in the top of the second inning and then manufactured another two runs in the top of the third. Sale is now 3-2 on the season with a 4.21 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, and 54/14 K/BB ratio in 51 1/3 innings. He gets the Orioles on the road next.

Avisail Garcia (knee) remains out of the White Sox lineup on Saturday.

White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Friday that Garcia could miss a couple of games, and admitted Saturday that he wanted to give him an extra day as a precautionary measure. J.B. Shuck is once again getting the start in his absence.
May 23 - 1:44 PM

White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Friday that Avisail Garcia's knee injury could cause him to miss a couple of games.

The inflammation in his right knee has been an ongoing issue for Garcia, and it looks like it could cost him another couple of games this weekend. J.B. Shuck got the start in his place on Friday and could be in line for additional playing time while Garcia is sidelined.
May 22 - 11:36 PM

Jeff Samardzija held the Twins to two runs and three hits over eight innings in a victory Friday.

Samardzija fanned nine, besting his previous season high in strikeouts by two. He's now 4-2 with a 4.28 ERA and a 49/12 K/BB ratio in 51 innings for the season. If he keeps striking out four batters for each one he walks (hardly an impossibility, considering he was at nearly 5:1 last season), his ERA should continue to drop.
May 22 - 11:17 PM

Adam Eaton went 0-for-4 on Friday to snap his 10-game hitting streak.

Eaton was just 5-for-20 in his last five games, so he wasn't exactly red-hot. Still, his current .229 average is a plenty better than his .186 mark from the final game before the streak started.
May 22 - 11:15 PM

White Sox acquired RHP Blake Smith from the Dodgers for LHP Eric Surkamp.

A former outfielder that has been converted to the bullpen, the 27-year-old owns a 1.62 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 16/9 K/BB ratio in 16 2/3 innings at Double-A Tulsa. He'll provide organizational bullpen depth for the White Sox.
May 22 - 8:07 PM

Avisail Garcia was scratched from the White Sox starting lineup on Friday due to inflammation in his right knee.

The knee has been a constant issue for Garcia in recent weeks and has caused him to miss several games along the way. J.B. Shuck will start in his place on Friday and bat seventh against Phil Hughes and the Twins.
May 22 - 6:54 PM

Carlos Rodon's next scheduled start will be pushed back.

It's all part of the plan to limit Rodon's innings this season. Hector Noesi will start on Monday against the Blue Jays in the lefty's vacated spot. Rodon should get a start later in the week, although the White Sox haven't revealed the exact day it will happen.
May 22 - 5:14 PM

John Danks lost Thursday after giving up five runs in 5 1/3 innings against the Indians.

After getting off to a rough start in the first, Danks was able to induce a run-scoring double-play ball from Ryan Raburn. That made it a 2-0 game, but with the bases empty and two outs, it looked like Danks would at least hold the Indians there. Instead, Nick Swisher and Mike Aviles followed with back-to-back homers, making it 4-0. That proved to be plenty for Danny Salazar, and Danks is now 2-4 with a 5.11 ERA.
