Melky Cabrera was removed from Tuesday's game against the Tigers due to dehydration.

He was 0-for-4 with an RBI groundout before getting replaced in the bottom of the seventh inning by J.B. Shuck. Cabrera will likely sit out of Wednesday afternoon's series finale at Detroit's Comerica Park.

Miguel Gonzalez (groin) is set to make a minor league rehab start with Triple-A Charlotte on Thursday.

If that goes smoothly, he should be cleared to rejoin the White Sox starting rotation next week. Gonzalez has been out since August 12 with a right groin strain.

James Shields limited the Tigers to two runs over six innings of work but took a no-decision on Monday.

Shields surrendered a solo shot to Justin Upton that tied the game in the sixth, but he was in line for a victory after the White Sox re-took the lead in the seventh. However, Nate Jones then served up a go-ahead homer to Jarrod Saltalamacchia in the eighth. It's been an up-and-down journey for Shields in Chicago, to say the least, but hopefully he can put up a second straight quality start this weekend in Minnesota.

Tyler Saladino had a two-RBI single and a solo homer in Monday's loss to the Tigers.

Saladino was the White Sox' offense in this one, as his single put the White Sox ahead in the fourth and his home run put them ahead in the seventh. Unfortunately for him and the Pale Hose, Jarrod Saltalamacchia put the Tigers back up for good with a homer in the eighth. Saladino has settled in as the White Sox' regular second baseman with Brett Lawrie banged up.

Adam Eaton (forearm) is in the White Sox starting lineup Monday night against the Tigers.

Eaton left Sunday's series finale against the Mariners after taking a Taijuan Walker pitch off his forearm in the fourth inning. X-rays obviously turned up negative.
Aug 29 - 3:50 PM

Carlos Rodon tossed six innings of one-run ball Sunday as the White Sox beat the Mariners 4-1.

Rodon struck out six, issued just one walk, and limited the Mariners to five hits. The one he gave up came on a Robinson Cano solo homer in the top of the sixth inning. Rodon finishes the month of August with a 1.47 ERA in 30 2/3 innings. The young southpaw is finding his groove with a favorable matchup against the Twins coming up next.

Adam Eaton exited Sunday's game versus the Mariners with a bruised right forearm.

Eaton was hit in the forearm by a Taijuan Walker pitch in the fourth inning. The good news is X-rays came back negative and he's considered day-to-day.
Aug 28 - 3:45 PM

Jose Abreu blasted his 18th home run of the season on Saturday, powering the White Sox in a 9-3 victory over the Mariners.

He wasn't alone, as teammates Avisail Garcia, Tyler Saladino and Alex Avila also left the yard. Abreu's solo shot in the first inning gave the White Sox an early 2-0 advantage. He finished the night 1-for-5 and is now hitting .285/.341/.455 with 18 homers and 72 RBI on the year.
Aug 27 - 10:11 PM

Jose Quintana was brilliant in Saturday's victory over the Mariners, striking out eight over 7 2/3 innings of one-run ball.

Quintana scattered five hits and one walk on the evening. The White Sox have struggled to provide him with run support for most of the season, and on a night where he didn't need much they poured on nine runs for him. Now 11-9 on the season, he'll head into Thursday's start against the Twins in Minnesota with a fantastic 2.77 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 150/39 K/BB ratio over 172 1/3 innings on the season.
Aug 27 - 10:09 PM

Melky Cabrera (flu) is back in the White Sox lineup Saturday against the Mariners.

Cabrera is back after missing two games with the flu. He'll handle left field and bat third against M's starter Ariel Miranda. Cabrera has hit .287 since the All-Star break with one homer and 16 RBI.
Aug 27 - 6:40 PM

Chris Sale allowed three runs and struck out 14 batters in a complete-game loss to the Mariners on Friday.

He also didn’t walk a batter. It was a good thing the Mariners got to him early, because Sale eventually found his groove and was completely dominant. The southpaw retired the final 16 batters he faced and struck out six batters in a row at one point. This was his fifth complete game of the season. He has now dropped four out of his last five decisions to fall to 15-7 on the year. He’ll bring a 3.14 ERA into a start against the Tigers on the road next week.
Aug 26 - 11:54 PM

Todd Frazier went 2-for-3 with a solo homer and a walk on Friday against the Mariners.

His solo blast off Felix Hernandez in the seventh inning was the only offense of the night for Chicago. Frazier is now sitting on 32 homers and 81 RBI, though he’s been relatively quiet during the second half and has a disappointing .214/.297/.455 batting line on the year.
Aug 26 - 11:52 PM

White Sox activated C Alex Avila from the 15-day disabled list.

Avila had been sidelined since July 6 with a right hamstring strain. With Dioner Navarro shipped out to Toronto on Friday, Avila should see the bulk of the action behind the plate for the White Sox over the final five-plus weeks of the regular season.
Aug 26 - 7:10 PM

White Sox acquired LHP Colton Turner from the Blue Jays for C Dioner Navarro.

The 25-year-old southpaw was a 21st round selection of the Blue Jays from the 2012 draft. He owns a 1.33 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 70/20 K/BB ratio over 54 innings across three minor league levels this season.
Aug 26 - 7:08 PM

MRIs on Brett Lawrie's left knee and calf came back negative.

Lawrie has encountered multiple setbacks while on his rehab assignment for a hamstring injury, but it appears he doesn't have any structural issues. He's been given inflammation medicine and will try to ramp up his activities in the next couple days.
