Jose Abreu went 2-for-3 with a double, triple and three RBI as the White Sox bested the Red Sox 4-1 on Tuesday.

Abreu had an RBI triple, his first triple of the year, in the first inning to get the Sox on the board. He then capped the scoring in the eighth with a two-run double. Abreu has a seven-game hitting streak during which he has six multi-hit games. After an ugly start, his season line is up to .252/.331/.398.

Jose Quintana held the Red Sox to one run over eight innings in Tuesday's win.

Quintana was magnificent, scattering four hits without walking a batter and striking out five. He hasn't allowed more than two earned runs in a start this season, and he's allowed one or fewer in four of his six. He's the owner of a sparkling 1.40 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 37/8 K/BB ratio over 38 2/3 innings heading into Sunday's meeting with the Twins.

David Robertson worked a perfect ninth inning against the Red Sox on Tuesday to earn his ninth save.

Robertson has now allowed a lone run in 12 appearances on the year. The right-hander is asserting his spot among the league's elite closers, owning a 0.73 ERA, 0.81 WHIP and 15/4 K/BB ratio on the year.

White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Tuesday that Alex Avila (hamstring) is close to rehab games.

Avila has been on the 15-day disabled list since April 24 because of a right hamstring. It sounds like the catcher could be ready for activation early next week.
May 3 - 5:31 PM

Avisail Garcia (hamstring) is aiming to return to the White Sox starting lineup Wednesday.

Garcia tweaked his hamstring last Friday night and will take another day of rest Tuesday against the Red Sox. Jerry Sands is starting at DH and batting seventh.
May 3 - 5:02 PM

Erik Johnson will join the White Sox starting rotation Thursday and face the Red Sox.

He's replacing veteran starter John Danks, who was pushed off the 40-man roster on Tuesday afternoon. Johnson owns an ugly 4.17 ERA, 1.55 WHIP, and 6.9 K/9 in 86 1/3 career major league innings.
May 3 - 4:25 PM

White Sox designated LHP John Danks for assignment.

Danks allowed six earned runs over five innings against the Orioles last Thursday, watching his season ERA rise to 7.25. He's in the final year of five-year, $65 million deal and will likely pass through waivers unclaimed because of the sum he's still owed. Erik Johnson will take over the vacant spot in Chicago's starting rotation.
May 3 - 4:22 PM

Brett Lawrie hit a solo home run in Sunday's 7-1 win over the Orioles, the third consecutive game in which he has gone deep.

Lawrie smacked a solo home run off the soon-to-be-demolished Ubaldo Jimenez in the fourth inning. The tater was his fourth of the season. Three of the four dingers came in this weekend's series against the Orioles. In addition to that quartet of blasts, he has driven in 10 runs, scored 15 and hit to a triple-slash of .290/.377/.505. The 26-year-old second baseman has a chance to surpass the career-best 16 homers he launched in 2015.
May 1 - 5:08 PM

Chris Sale lacked his usual pinpoint control in Sunday's 7-1 win over the Orioles, walking four while allowing one run over 5 1/3 innings.

Sale limited the damage on the scoreboard, but the four walks were wildly out of character for him. In his previous five starts combined (38 innings), he had handed out just five free passes. On the non-walk side of the equation, the ace southpaw scattered five hits while striking out six. Even a shaky Chris Sale start is not without its rewards. For the season, he holds a 1.66 ERA, 0.81 WHIP and 38/9 K/BB ratio. After surrendering six runs over his first two starts, he has yielded just three (two earned) over his last four outings. A home showdown with the Twins shows next on his schedule.
May 1 - 4:56 PM

Avisail Garcia (hamstring) is not expected to be ready to play by Tuesday.

Garcia tweaked his hamstring on Friday and is sitting out his second straight game Sunday. It appears he won't be ready after Monday's off day, either, although there hasn't been talk of a disabled list stint yet. Jerry Sands will handle the designated hitter duties while Garcia is out.
May 1 - 12:17 PM

White Sox optioned RHP Tommy Kahnle to Triple-A Charlotte.

He's clearing space for the return of David Robertson from the bereavement list. Kahnle threw a scoreless inning in his brief time with the big club.
May 1 - 11:28 AM

White Sox activated RHP David Robertson from the bereavement list.

Robertson was away from the club for a few days following the death of his father-in-law. Tommy Kahnle has been sent back to Triple-A Charlotte in a corresponding move.
May 1 - 11:27 AM

Jimmy Rollins is not in the White Sox' lineup Sunday.

He's just receiving some rest. Carlos Sanchez is filling in at shortstop.
May 1 - 10:54 AM

Jose Abreu went 2-for-5 with two RBI, including the game-winner in the ninth, as the White Sox outlasted the Orioles 8-7 on Saturday.

Abreu had an RBI single in the eighth to help the Sox stage a comeback, and it was his two-out RBI hit in the ninth that gave them the win. Abreu's sluggish start had some concerned, but the first baseman has multi-hit games in four of his last five contests to raise his average to .229. The power is still notably absent -- he's hit just three homers, and none since April 19 -- but there's no reason for alarm just yet, especially in light of the recent improvements.
Apr 30 - 11:40 PM

Brett Lawrie homered, stole a base and scored two runs in Saturday's win over the Orioles.

Lawrie hit a solo home run, his third of the season, in the fourth inning before walking to lead off the seventh. He promptly stole second base -- his second steal of the year -- and came around to score on an Austin Jackson RBI single. In his first year with the Sox, Lawrie is hitting .267/.347/.444 with nine RBI and 14 runs scored.
