John Danks allowed three runs in six innings, earning a no-decision as the Indians lost to the White Sox on Monday.

Danks allowed a pair of home runs: a solo home run to Ryan Raburn in the second inning, and another solo home run to Brett Hayes in the fifth. Overall, the lefty gave up six hits, walked two, and struck out four. All things considered, it was an improvement over his first two starts. Danks will bring a 6.06 ERA into his next start against the Tigers in Detroit.

Melky Cabrera delivered a walk-off RBI single to cap a four-run ninth inning in Monday's win against the Indians.

The White Sox had been shut out through eight innings, but rallied for four runs in the bottom of the ninth inning against Indians closer Cody Allen. After Gordon Beckham had tied the game with an RBI single, Cabrera singled to left-center to send the White Sox home happy. He finished 1-for-4 with a walk on the evening. Cabrera has been slow out of the gate, batting .260/.275/.280 with only one extra-base hit.

White Sox general manager Rick Hahn said Monday that Nate Jones (elbow) could begin a rehab assignment sometime in May.

That would put him on pace to return likely sometime in June, which is a pretty quick recovery considering he had Tommy John surgery last July. Jones obviously is no longer in the mix for saves as he was last season, but he could be a nice mid-season addition to the White Sox' bullpen if he regains his pre-surgery form.

White Sox activated RHP Jake Petricka from the 15-day disabled list.

Petricka missed the first two weeks of the season with right forearm soreness. He posted a 2.96 ERA in 73 innings last year for the White Sox and should quickly move into a setup role ahead of closer David Robertson.
Apr 20 - 12:30 PM

White Sox designated RHP Kyle Drabek for assignment.

Drabek had allowed three earned runs on nine hits in 5 1/3 innings of relief for the White Sox. The former top prospect could draw some interest on waivers.
Apr 20 - 12:28 PM

White Sox purchased the contract of LHP Carlos Rodon from Triple-A Charlotte.

Rodon is going to be put in Chicago's bullpen initially, but the 22-year-old top prospect should push his way into the rotation sooner than later. He was the No. 3 overall pick in the 2014 MLB Amateur Draft and possesses tremendous swing-and-miss stuff. We'd be adding him in most mixed leagues with Hector Noesi's role hanging in the balance. John Danks has also been roughed up. Rodon's slider is a must-see pitch.
Apr 20 - 12:26 PM

White Sox placed RHP Javy Guerra on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 13, with right shoulder inflammation.

Guerra had made three scoreless appearances for the Pale Hose, so it's an unfortunate loss. Jake Petricka has been activated to take the vacant bullpen spot.
Apr 20 - 12:22 PM

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that Carlos Rodon will be recalled from Triple-A Charlotte on Monday.

Rodon will pitch out of the bullpen initially, but it's only a matter of time before he replaces Hector Noesi in the team's rotation. If he's unowned in any mixed leagues, now is the time to scurry to the waiver wire and secure the studly young left-hander.
Apr 19 - 6:05 PM

Carlos Sanchez has been unstoppable since his demotion, hitting .485 in seven games for Triple-A Charlotte.

He leads all Triple-A players in hitting. The White Sox have a tough infield to crack with Jose Abreu at first, Micah Johnson at second, Alexei Ramirez at short and Conor Gillaspie at third base. Until a spot opens up, Sanchez is better off in the minors where he can see regular at-bats.
Apr 19 - 4:39 PM

Jose Quintana was clobbered for nine runs across four innings of work in Sunday's loss to the Tigers.

Quintana was one pitch away from getting out of the first inning unscathed, but he left a pitch over the plate and Yoenis Cespedes lined it over the left-field wall for a grand slam. Cespedes got to him again with a two-run shot in the third. The left-hander has now had two clunkers in three starts, but impatient owners need to sit tight. Quintana will rebound and has a decent shot to do so next weekend versus the Royals.
Apr 19 - 4:19 PM

Jose Abreu was credited with an RBI triple in Sunday's loss to the Tigers.

It could have just as easily been ruled a single and a two-base error, as J.D. Martinez misplayed a ball in right field to allow Melky Cabrera to score and Abreu to end up at third. It's the big first baseman's first triple of the year and third of his career. He's driven in five runs over the last two days to push his RBI total to seven.
Apr 19 - 4:09 PM

Jose Abreu blasted a grand slam home run on Saturday, helping to power the White Sox to a 12-3 victory over the Tigers in Detroit.

Abreu's slam came as part of a seven-run fourth inning that chased Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez. He would also add a single and a double in the rout, finishing the afternoon 3-for-6 with a pair of runs scored. He's now hitting .250/.302/.550 with three homers and six RBI on the young season.
Apr 18 - 4:26 PM

Melky Cabrera went 4-for-5 with a double as the White Sox routed the Tigers on Saturday afternoon in Detroit.

Cabrera scored a pair of runs and drove home two on the impressive afternoon. He had been off to a bit of a slow start with his new squad, and is now hitting .238/.238/.262 after his four-hit attack.
Apr 18 - 4:23 PM

Chris Sale racked up six strikeouts in six innings of work in a victory over the Tigers on Saturday afternoon.

Staked to a gigantic lead, Sale was on cruise control for most of the afternoon, allowing two runs on four hits and a walk over his six frames. He did surrender one home run, a solo shot to J.D. Martinez. Sale now boasts a 2.25 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 14/2 K/BB ratio over 12 innings in his first two starts. He'll look to continue that dominance on Thursday when he does battle against the Royals.
Apr 18 - 4:21 PM

White Sox placed C Rob Brantly on the 15-day disabled list with an avulsion fracture in his left thumb.

The injury occurred during spring training and Brantly had been attempting to play through it. He lost out to Geovany Soto during the spring for the team's backup catcher gig and now won't be seeing time with the White Sox any time soon.
