Melky Cabrera paced the White Sox with three hits Saturday in a win over the Yankees.

He went 2-for-3 with a single and a three-run homer. The veteran has hit safely in 13 of his last 15 games, raising his batting average 26 points over that span. Cabrera has appeared in all but one game for the White Sox this season with 114 hits.

John Danks held the Yankees in check Saturday by allowing just one run in 5 2/3 innings as the White Sox held on for an 8-2 victory.

Maybe the Yankees should have paced themselves. After scoring 13 runs on Friday, New York couldn't muster much of anything against Danks, managing only four walks and three hits. Danks tied a season-high with eight strikeouts in the win. The 30-year-old hasn't exactly been the model of consistency this season (6-8, 4.80 ERA) but he must be doing something right having not lost since June 22.

White Sox signed OF Dayan Viciedo to a minor league contract.

Viciedo was granted his release from Oakland earlier this week. Chicago has already assigned him to Triple-A Charlotte. This marks Viciedo's second stint with the White Sox after hitting 66 home runs in 483 games for the Pale Hose from 2010 to 2014. He'll work at first base, only playing outfield if there's an emergency.

White Sox recalled RHP Scott Carroll from Triple-A Charlotte.

Carroll seems to be the go-to guy anytime the White Sox need a fresh arm in the bullpen. The 30-year-old has appeared in 12 games for the big league club this season, posting a 3.28 ERA, 1.54 WHIP and 15/9 K/BB ratio over 24 2/3 innings.
Aug 1 - 3:39 PM

White Sox placed OF J.B. Shuck on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring.

The 28-year-old outfielder has done a nice job in a bench role for the White Sox, slashing .278/.339/.361 with 11 RBI in 97 at-bats. He should be ready to rejoin the club in mid-August.
Aug 1 - 3:37 PM

Carlos Rodon was knocked around for eight runs over three-plus innings Friday in a loss to the Yankees.

It was the shortest start of his brief major league career. Rodon gave up a five-spot in the second inning, the big blow of which was a grand slam from Mark Teixeira. He finally got the hook in the fourth after throwing a wild pitch to score a run and walking Alex Rodriguez. The rookie southpaw gave up eight hits and four walks while also throwing three wild pitches. His ERA jumped from 4.09 to 4.84 in the loss. Inconsistency has been the name of the game for him lately, but he'll attempt to bounce back next week against the Rays.

Jose Abreu launched a two-run homer Friday in a losing effort against the Yankees.

Abreu finished July with a flourish, batting .381 (16-for-42) with four home runs and 15 RBI over his last 11 games. He has hit safely in all of them. The 28-year-old is in a good situation in Chicago and it would be no surprise if he led the AL in homers over the final two months of the season.
Aug 1 - 1:44 AM

Adam LaRoche went 4-for-5 with an RBI single in Friday's loss to the Yankees.

His four hits tied a career-high. With the White Sox being blown out, LaRoche also got to pitch the ninth inning and made it through a scoreless frame with a strikeout. A big night on what has mostly been a frustrating year for him.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that teams have "checked back in" with the White Sox on Jeff Samardzija, but it's "still not that likely" he's traded.

The White Sox sit only 3.5 games out of a Wild Card spot and appear poised to hold their assets and possibly even add to the club. FOX Sports' Jon Morosi says the club is keeping an open mind and hasn't completely ruled out dealing Samardzija. The righty's fantasy owners surely would prefer a trade given the home park he's in and the poor defense behind him. The good news is that he's been really good of late in spite of those factors, posting a 2.66 ERA over his last eight starts.
Jul 31 - 11:31 AM

Chris Sale was lit up by the Red Sox on Thursday, surrendering seven runs and 12 hits in five innings.

That's the most hits he's even given up in a start. It follows an outing just 11 days ago in which he gave up 11 hits. Still, we wouldn't expect that this is the start of a trend for Sale. He still struck out seven and didn't give up any homers tonight.
Jul 30 - 11:17 PM

Athletics released OF Dayan Viciedo.

The veteran slugger opted out of his deal and was granted his release from the Athletics. He'll look to latch on elsewhere on a minor league pact.
Jul 30 - 6:43 PM

White Sox acquired INF Justin Sellers from Pirates for a player to be named later.

With Micah Johnson forced to the disabled list at Triple-A Charlotte, Sellers will provide versatility and insurance.
Jul 30 - 6:33 PM

Jose Quintana held the Red Sox to two runs in 6 1/3 innings to pick up a win on Wednesday.

Quintana got a month's worth of run support tonight, as the White Sox busted out for nine runs to give him his sixth win of the season. It's the first time they've done so well in one of his starts since July 2014. With a shutout of the Indians last time out, Quintana has won back-to-back starts for the first time this season.
Jul 30 - 12:02 AM

Adam Eaton went 3-for-6 with a leadoff homer against the Red Sox on Wednesday.

Eaton has nine homers in 93 games this year after hitting one in 123 games last year. He's been one of the keys to the White Sox's turnaround of late, spending the last two months as one of the AL's best leadoff men after spending the first two months as one of the worst.
Jul 29 - 11:56 PM

White Sox recalled INF/OF Leury Garcia from Triple-A Charlotte.

Garcia has a hit in his lone plate appearance in the majors this season. He's assumed Emilio Bonifacio's (oblique) utility role.
