Todd Frazier went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's win over the Twins.

Frazier followed up a two-run homer by Jose Abreu with a two-run tater of his own against Nik Turley in the first inning of the White Sox's breezy 9-0 win. The veteran slugger is hitting an underwhelming .210/.315/.420 with 12 homers and 35 RBI for the season as a whole.

Jose Abreu went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Thursday's win over the Twins.

Abreu connected for a two-run shot off Nik Turley in what would eventually evolve into a five-run first inning by the White Sox. The dinger was his 13th of the season and bumped his RBI total up to 47 in 280 at-bats. He has been swinging a hot power stick of late, having bopped three homers in his last five games.

Jose Quintana pitched a sharp game in Thursday's 9-0 win over the Twins, firing off 6 2/3 innings of scoreless ball.

Quintana scattered five hits while striking out nine. He did not walk a batter over his strong 6 2/3 innings of work. The 28-year-old southpaw threw 119 pitches (69 strikes) in the outing. After a slow start to the season, Quintana has limited the opposition to two or fewer runs in three of his last four starts, lowering his ERA from 5.30 to 4.69 in that space. A home start against the Yankees shows next on his schedule.

White Sox prospect Carson Fulmer didn't get out of the fifth inning on Wednesday for Triple-A Charlotte.

Fulmer gave up six runs on six hits in 4 1/3 innings, and while he did strike out three, he also walked five. That's not gonna work. As good as Fulmer's stuff can be, his command and control is basically making it impossible for him to be an effective starter. At some point, the White Sox are going to have to move him to the bullpen without drastic improvements.

White Sox prospect Lucas Giolito gave up three runs in five innings on Wednesday for Triple-A Charlotte.

Giolito was excellent in the first four innings, but struggled in the fifth to make his box score a bit deceiving. He struck out eight, and he allowed just four hits on the afternoon. The stuff has been much better in June, and despite the struggles in his last inning, this was another positive start.
Jun 22 - 1:02 PM

Adam Engel went 1-for-3 with a double and a run scored in Wednesday's loss to the Twins.

The double was Engel's first of the season and represented the team's lone extra-base knock against a dominant Jose Berrios. He has recorded seven hits in 27 at-bats and is hitting .259/.310/.296 in 10 games with the White Sox this season.
Jun 21 - 11:24 PM

David Holmberg surrendered four runs on seven hits over 3 1/3 innings in Wednesday's loss to the Twins.

Holmberg was working with a 2-1 lead entering the bottom of the third. That lead evaporated before the end of the frame, as the 25-year-old southpaw allowed a solo homer to Miguel Sano, an RBI single to Max Kepler and an RBI ground out to Ehire Adrianza to flip the score to a 4-2 Twins advantage. Holmberg struck out four and walked two on the evening. Up next on the docket, a home start against the Yankees. He will carry a 2.93 ERA and 1.08 WHIP (five starts) into that contest.

Todd Frazier is not in the White Sox starting lineup Wednesday against the Twins.

Matt Davidson will start at third base and bat fifth versus Minnesota right-hander Jose Berrios. Frazier is slashing just .205/.310/.405 this season for Chicago, though he has tallied 11 home runs and 33 RBI in 61 games.
Jun 21 - 2:49 PM

White Sox signed INF/OF Grant Green to a minor league contract.

Green was released by the Nationals last week after batting just .246/.319/.285 in 40 games at Triple-A Syracuse. The well-traveled 29-year-old utilityman will report to Triple-A Charlotte.
Jun 21 - 1:40 PM

Jose Abreu had a monster day at the plate in Tuesday's loss to the Twins, going 4-for-4 with a homer, two doubles and two RBI.

Abreu also scored a pair of runs in the contest. Abreu got the White Sox on the board with an RBI double in the second inning. He then clubbed a solo homer in the sixth that pulled the White Sox to within a run at 8-7. That would be as close as they would get though. He has been a force in the middle of the White Sox' lineups this season, slashing .303/.357/.509 with 12 homers and 45 RBI.
Jun 21 - 12:24 AM

Derek Holland was crushed in Tuesday's loss to the Twins, giving up seven runs on nine hits in only 2 2/3 innings.

Holland struck out three and walked one in the abbreviated outing. The Twins scored a pair in the first inning on a two-run homer by Miguel Sano then rallied for five to chase the left-hander in the third. After a strong start to the season, he has come crashing back to Earth, sporting a 4.48 ERA and 1.53 WHIP on the season. He'll look to get back in the win column on Sunday when he takes on the Athletics.
Jun 21 - 12:24 AM

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

It's the corresponding move for Leury Garcia (finger). Engel has hit .300/.364/.300 with four steals in his brief time in the majors this season. He should see some starts in center field.
Jun 20 - 12:09 PM

White Sox signed first-round pick 3B Jake Burger.

MLB.com's Jim Callis reports that Burger will receive a $3.7 million signing bonus, which is a bit below the slot value of the No. 11 overall pick of $4.1992 million. Burger might eventually have to move to first base, but he was viewed as the best power hitter in the Draft at the collegiate level.
Jun 20 - 10:53 AM

White Sox prospect Reynaldo Lopez gave up three runs in just over five innings of work for Triple-A Charlotte.

Lopez allowed five hits in those 5 1/3 innings, and he also walked two while striking out three. If a box score could talk, it would probably say "meh." For someone with a fastball/curve combination this good, he should be missing more bats. It could be a case of him working on things, but the results right now are just okay. We expect more.
Jun 19 - 1:23 PM

White Sox prospect Yoan Moncada went 2-for-4 with a walk on Sunday for Triple-A Charlotte.

Moncada also scored twice and knocked in a run. It's been a lethargic June for one of the best prospects in baseball, but it appears he's starting to right the ship. It shouldn't come as a surprise; he's too talented to be down for too long. If he can finish the month out on a strong note, he still has a great chance to earn a promotion before the trade deadline.
