Carlos Sanchez went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's loss to the Rays.

Sanchez rocked a two-run homer off Chris Archer in the seventh inning to draw the White Sox to within 5-3, but neither team would score again in the contest. For his part, the 24-year-old Sanchez is working to a .217/.247/.378 triple-slash over 143 at-bats. He has swatted four homers and driven in 21 runs in that space.

Jose Quintana pitched well in Thursday's loss to the Rays, yielding two runs on five hits over six innings.

Despite taking the loss, Quintana finished out his season in sturdy style on Thursday. Outside of an Alexei Ramirez RBI single in the second and a solo home run by Mikie Mahtook in the fourth, he kept the scoreboard clean. In 32 starts, the 27-year-old southpaw pitched to a 3.20 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 181/50 K/BB ratio. He tossed 208 innings this season and has now thrown at least 200 frames in four consecutive seasons.

Tyler Saladino (back) has been ruled out for the season.

Saladino hasn't played in a week and the White Sox don't feel the need to push him at this point. Carlos Sanchez will continue to hold down second base.

Miguel Gonzalez pitched 8 1/3 innings of three-hit ball in the White Sox's 1-0 win over the Rays on Wednesday.

The Orioles chose to save $4 million by cutting Gonzalez this spring. It's a mistake that might cost them the wild card, as Gonzalez posted a 3.73 ERA in 23 starts (and one relief appearance) for the White Sox. Orioles starters have a 4.80 ERA at the moment.
Sep 29 - 1:47 AM

Todd Frazier hit his 40th homer off the Rays' Eddie Gamboa during Wednesday's win.

It was the only run of the game for either team. Frazier has done absolutely nothing offensively besides hit home runs this year, but it's pretty much impossible to be a bad player while hitting 40 homers and playing quality defense. Frazier's OPS currently stands at .788. Right now, Albert Pujols is the only player ever to hit 40 homers and finish with a sub-.800 OPS; he came in at .787 last year.

Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports the White Sox are aiming to bring back manager Robin Ventura.

But the fifth-year manager's current deal expires at the end of October, so a new contract will have to be worked out. Nightengale calls the desire to retain Ventura a "surprise" given the way the White Sox have underperformed expectations over the last few seasons, but Nightengale then goes on to note that the club's front office "refuses to blame him for their woes." Ventura is earning around $1.5 million for the 2016 season.

Tim Anderson went 3-for-5 with a homer, three RBI and two runs scored in the White Sox' 13-6 beatdown of the Rays on Tuesday.

Anderson did damage with each of his three hits, collecting an RBI single in the first inning before swatting a run-scoring double in the second. He then capped it off with a solo shot, his eighth of the season, in the eighth inning. It's been a successful rookie campaign for the 23-year-old, who is hitting .278/.300/.411 with those eight homers, 28 RBI, 54 runs scored and 10 steals in 94 games overall.
Sep 28 - 1:42 AM

Adam Eaton went 2-for-5 with an RBI single, a stolen base and two runs scored in a win over the Rays on Tuesday.

The 27-year-old is having a year remarkably similar to his productive 2015 season. Through Tuesday, Eaton is batting .284/.361/.431 with 14 homers, 59 RBI, 87 runs scored and 13 steals; last season, Eaton hit .287/.361/.431 with 14 homers, 56 RBI, 98 runs scored and 18 steals. It's not overwhelming in any particular category, but Eaton is proving to be a solid five-category contributor for fantasy purposes.
Sep 28 - 1:34 AM

Leury Garcia went 2-for-4 with a triple, a three-run home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Rays.

Both the triple and the dinger were the first in 13 games for Garcia, who was recalled in early September after spending the year with the club's Triple-A affiliate. Garcia had some prospect juice a few years back and was acquired by the Sox in a deal with the Rangers for Alex Rios in 2013, but he hasn't been able to carve out a meaningful role with the big club in recent seasons. He'll continue to be a complementary player going forward.
Sep 28 - 1:28 AM

Chris Sale allowed three runs over seven innings against the Rays on Tuesday to earn his 17th win of the season.

Sale gave up eight hits while striking out seven in the victory. The southpaw is seventh in the American League with his 3.21 ERA and ranks third with his 227 strikeouts, and with the Cy Young race being wide open it's conceivable that Sale could find his name at or near the top of a lot of writers' lists when it's all said and done. The 27-year-old will have one more shot at making a good impression when he faces off against the Twins on Sunday.
Sep 28 - 1:20 AM

James Shields held the Rays to one run in six innings Monday to improve to 6-18 on the season.

It won't be a 20-loss season for Shields, thanks in part to the Rays starting four-ninths of a major league lineup tonight. Seriously. Catcher Curt Casali, who has hit .147 in 143 at-bats against right-handers this season, was the designated hitter. The designated hitter!
Sep 27 - 12:05 AM

Justin Morneau went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer and three RBI against the Rays on Monday.

Morneau came back pretty strong in his return from elbow surgery, but he entered tonight hitting just .215/.255/.333 with eight RBI in his previous 27 games, leaving him with a .709 OPS overall. The White Sox have nothing to play for right now, but Morneau could use a big final week to entice a team to give him a DH job next year.
Sep 26 - 11:57 PM

Carlos Rodon put together the best outing of his career Sunday, recording 11 strikeouts over eight shutout innings in a 3-0 win over the Indians.

He walked three batters but surrendered only two singles on the day. Rodon has certainly flashed brilliance at times in his two big league seasons, but rarely has he put everything together as he did in this one. He had thrown 108 pitches through his eight frames, which is the only reason he didn't get a shot at his first shutout. Rodon will get the Twins on Friday to close out his regular season.
Sep 25 - 4:17 PM

David Robertson struck out the side in the ninth inning to record a save in Sunday's win over the Indians.

All three punchouts were of the swinging variety, as Robertson went through the heart of the Indians' order to protect a three-run lead. The White Sox' closer has now converted 36 saves in 43 chances this season.
Sep 25 - 4:09 PM

Todd Frazier scored two runs and stole a pair of bases in Sunday's win over the Indians.

He also singled and drew a walk. Frazier is sporting a .226 batting average this season, but with 39 home runs, 96 RBI, 86 runs and 14 stolen bases, fantasy owners aren't going to complain.
