Adam Eaton is expected to be in the White Sox starting lineup on Saturday after leaving Friday's game early with a lower body injury.

Eaton sustained the injury while awkwardly rounding first base after his first inning single. His rest on Friday was merely a precautionary measure, and the injury isn't expected to be an issue moving forward.

Alejandro De Aza went hitless again in Friday's loss to the Rangers.

He finished the night 0-for-3 with a strikeout and is now hitting a paltry .167/.196/.352 on the season. If he continues to struggle, Jordan Danks could start stealing playing time away from him in the White Sox outfield.

Marcus Semien continued his recent struggles in Friday's loss to the Rangers, going 0-for-4 with a strikeout.

As a team, the White Sox managed just three hits off Martin Perez who was brilliant. Semien's run of usefulness may be coming to an end now that Gordon Beckham is nearing a return. He's hitting just .197/.260/.310 with two homers, five RBI and two stolen bases in 71 at-bats.

Felipe Paulino was obliterated in Friday’s loss to the Rangers, getting pounded for 10 runs on 13 hits in just 3 2/3 innings of work.

With an already depleted bullpen, manager Robin Ventura tried to leave Paulino in there to take his medicine and eat some innings, but he simply couldn’t get hitters out. With an 11.29 ERA and 2.56 WHIP through his first 18 1/3, it’d be shocking if he wasn’t demoted to the bullpen after this debacle.

White Sox manager Robin Ventura indicated Friday that Nate Jones' back injury is a little worse than the team originally thought.

Ventura offered no timetable for when Jones might be allowed to resume throwing, but it doesn't sound like it will be anytime soon. It's obviously not encouraging news, but those stashing Jones in their DL spot should keep doing so as long as they have room.

Chris Cotillo of MLBDailyDish.com reports that Brian Omogrosso has signed with the Bridgeport Bluefish of the independent Atlantic League.

Omogrosso, who will turn 30 next week, posted a 5.54 ERA across 29 appearances over the last two seasons with the White Sox. He'll be looking to impress enough in indy ball to attract interest from major league clubs.

Chris Sale wasn't involved in the decision after allowing one run in seven innings and striking out 10 against the Red Sox on Thursday.

Sale was dominant for the most part, with the Red Sox crushing two of his very few mistakes. Fortunately, the first didn't hurt him, as Adam Eaton robbed David Ortiz of a homer in the first. The other did, though, as Xander Bogaerts was able to hit one out to left in the sixth. It was the first homer allowed by Sale in four starts this season.

Making just his second start of the season, Paul Konerko went 0-for-4 on Thursday, leaving him 1-for-13.

With Adam Dunn and Jose Abreu off to such nice starts, the White Sox haven't found much for Konerko to do yet. Fortunately, that seems to be OK with him, though he'd surely prefer to better capitalize on what chances he does get.
Apr 17 - 11:58 PM

Jose Abreu will get the day off Thursday against the Red Sox.

Abreu is currently in a 1-for-20 stretch, so it's not a bad time to give him a breather. Paul Konerko will make the start at first base.

White Sox purchased the contract of RHP Zach Putnam from Triple-A Charlotte.

Putnam will take over the bullpen spot left vacant by left-hander Donnie Veal, who was designated for assignment on Thursday after a brutal start to the season. Putnam had fanned 11 batters in six innings at Triple-A.
Apr 17 - 3:09 PM

White Sox designated LHP Donnie Veal for assignment.

Veal had allowed six hits, seven walks, and five earned runs in six innings this season for the White Sox. The 29-year-old left-hander will likely clear waivers.
Apr 17 - 3:07 PM

John Danks pitched six innings of one-run ball versus the Red Sox on Wednesday.

Danks gave up hits to the first three batters he faced and then not another one for the rest of his outing. In fact, the Red Sox didn't have another hit until the ninth. Danks ended up with a no-decision despite leaving with a two-run lead. He's 3-for-3 in quality starts this season, but he has just one win to show for it.
Apr 17 - 1:45 AM

Matt Lindstrom was charged with a remarkably cheap blown save after inheriting Maikel Cleto's mess in the ninth inning Wednesday against the Red Sox.

Cleto, who got the last out in the eighth, was going to get a chance to go for the save in the ninth, but he was pulled from a 3-2 game after walking the first two batters of the inning. Lindstrom came in and retired David Ortiz on a flyball before giving up a soft infield single and a game-tying sac fly. While he did no wrong, it was his third blown save of the young season. Lindstrom preserved the tie from there and pitched a scoreless 10th, so it was a good night for him and a setback for Cleto, who appeared set to get a chance to supplant Lindstrom in the closer's role.
Apr 17 - 1:42 AM

With the White Sox out of pitchers, Leury Garcia took a loss in the 14th inning Wednesday against the Red Sox.

Rather than extend Daniel Webb past three innings, the White Sox went to Garcia in a tie game. He actually got two quick outs, but he then walked two and gave up a two-run double to Jackie Bradley Jr.
Apr 17 - 1:39 AM

Jose Abreu went 0-for-6 and grounded into a double play in the 14-inning loss to the Red Sox on Wednesday.

Since hitting his third and fourth homers Thursday, Abreu has gone 1-for-20 in his last five games, though he does have four walks in that span. It shouldn't be viewed as anything more than a run-of-the-mill mini-slump.
