Melky Cabrera socked a go-ahead solo homer in the 10th inning on Saturday, propelling the White Sox to an extra-inning win over the Tigers.

Cabrera greeted Tigers' reliever Justin Wilson with the solo shot leading off the 10th inning. It was his lone hit in four at-bats on the afternoon. The veteran outfielder is now hitting .247/.309/.342 with one long ball and seven RBI on the season.

Jose Abreu crushed his first two homers of the 2017 season on Saturday, leading the White Sox to a 6-4 victory over the Tigers.

Abreu, who missed Friday's game with a right hip flexor/groin issue, tagged Tigers' starter Michael Fulmer for a solo shot in the third inning. He added a second solo homer off of Blaine Hardy in the eighth for what proved to be a valuable insurance run. He finished the afternoon 2-for-3 and is now hitting .269/.337/.410 with 10 RBI on the season.
Apr 29 - 4:50 PM

David Robertson suffered his first blown save of the season on Saturday, allowing a pair of runs in the ninth inning against the Tigers.

Robertson earned a victory for his performance after the White Sox scored a pair of runs in the top half of the 10th inning. He even stuck around to finish the 10th, acting as his own closer. Even with this rough outing, he still sports a terrific 2.89 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 15/3 K/BB ratio through 9 2/3 innings on the season.
Apr 29 - 4:49 PM

Derek Holland pitched well in a no-decision against the Tigers on Saturday, scattering five hits over 6 1/3 innings of two-run ball.

The veteran southpaw walked two and punched out four on the afternoon. The Tigers scored a run in the first inning on an RBI single by Victor Martinez, then Holland locked them down until Justin Upton's RBI single in the sixth. Holland owns an impressive 2.17 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 23/11 K/BB ratio through 29 innings. He'll do battle against the Royals in Kansas City on Thursday.
Apr 29 - 4:49 PM

Jose Abreu (hip/groin) has returned to the White Sox starting lineup for Saturday afternoon's matchup against the Tigers.

Abreu is back in his customary cleanup spot in the lineup after missing Friday's game with a right hip flexor/groin issue. The 30-year-old slugger is hitting .253/.309/.350 with no homers and eight RBI through 81 plate appearances on the season.
Apr 29 - 11:06 AM

Avisail Garcia continued to feast on Tigers' pitching on Friday, going 3-for-5 with a homer in a 7-3 victory.

Garcia and teammate Todd Frazier hit back-to-back solo homers off of Matt Boyd leading off the second inning to get the White Sox on the board. He added an RBI single in the third inning that plated Tim Anderson. Garcia is locked in at the plate and his now hitting a robust .388/.430/.638 with five homers and 19 RBI on the season.

Tim Anderson crushed his second home run of the season as the White Sox beat the Tigers on Friday.

Anderson tagged hard-throwing rookie Joe Jimenez for a two-run shot in the ninth inning, capping off the White Sox' scoring in the contest. He doubled and scored a run in the third inning, finishing the night 2-for-5. After a very slow start to the season, Anderson has now hit safely in nine of his last 10 games, raising his average from .140 to .224 in the process.
Apr 28 - 11:13 PM

Todd Frazier went 1-for-5 with his second homer of the season as the White Sox toppled the Tigers in their series-opener on Friday night in Detroit.

Frazier got the White Sox on the board with a solo shot to lead off the second inning against Matt Boyd. He reached on an error in the eighth inning and came around to score another run. Frazier has had a rough go of it at the plate in the first month of the season, hitting .167/.248/.370 with two homers and eight RBI.
Apr 28 - 11:10 PM

Mike Pelfrey struggled in a no-decision against his former team on Friday, allowing three runs on six hits and four walks over 4 2/3 innings.

The veteran right-hander struck out two on the night. With as bad as he was, he was actually able to minimize the damage overall and kept his team in the game after the Tigers struck for two runs in the first inning. He now owns a 5.00 ERA and 1.67 WHIP on the season and remains an unappealing fantasy option in all formats. He'll take another turn in the White Sox' rotation on Wednesday against the Royals in Kansas City.
Apr 28 - 11:07 PM

Jose Abreu (hip/groin) is not in the White Sox' lineup Friday.

Abreu had said he planned to play Friday after leaving Wednesday's game with a right hip flexor/groin issue, but the White Sox have decided to give him another day. Matt Davidson is at first base, Tyler Saladino is in the leadoff spot and Yolmer Sanchez is at second base.
Apr 28 - 4:03 PM

White Sox prospect Zach Burdi pitched two scoreless innings in relief for Triple-A Charlotte on Wednesday.

In just under eight innings, Burdi has struck out 13 hitters, and opposing batters are hitting just .219 against him. With a triple-digit fastball, nasty slider and impressive change, he has the stuff to be a dominant closer at the next level. Don't be surprised if he's closing out games for the White Sox before the end of the 2017 season.
Apr 27 - 2:52 PM

White Sox prospect Yoan Moncada went 2-for-5 with three strikeouts for Triple-A Charlotte on Wednesday.

When Moncada makes contact, he's blistering the baseball. When is the operative term, however, as he's struck out 27 times in 74 at-bats. As talented as he is, it's just so hard to hit for average when you're only putting the ball in play two of three times. Even with this concern, he's the best fantasy prospect in baseball.
Apr 27 - 2:23 PM

White Sox pitching prospect Lucas Giolito gave up four runs in five innings on Monday for Triple-A Charlotte.

Giolito also gave up five hits and two walks, but did strike out seven in the outing. This is not the first time that Giolito has gotten off to a slow start, but it's still slightly concerning. You should still expect Reynaldo Lopez to get the call to the show first, even if Giolito has more upside.
Apr 27 - 1:01 PM

Jose Abreu (hip, groin) said he expects to play Friday against the Tigers.

Abreu left Wednesday's game against Kansas City with a flexor strain in his right hip but said he mostly feels pain in his upper groin. Either way, he should be ready to roll after the White Sox's off day on Thursday. Abreu has plated at least 100 runs in each of the last three seasons. He'll have to pick up the pace if he wants to make it four straight (.253, 0 HR, 8 RBI in 75 at-bats).
Apr 26 - 7:59 PM

Jose Abreu has been diagnosed with a mild right hip flexor strain.

Abreu took an awkward spill while trying to field a groundball in Wednesday afternoon's game against the Royals. A hip flexor strain is something that could send the first baseman to the 10-day disabled list, though the White Sox are calling him day-to-day for now. Todd Frazier moved from third base to first base on Wednesday with Tyler Saladino taking over at the hot corner.
