White Sox prospect OF Jacob May has been placed on the 7-day disabled list at Double-A Birmingham with a concussion.

The center fielder suffered the concussion on Tuesday when he collided with shortstop Tim Anderson chasing down a pop up. The 23-year-old has fared well this season in his first taste of the Double-A level, batting .311/.359/.359 with 10 doubles and 25 stolen bases in 52 games. May doesn’t profile as an everyday player in the major leagues, but his contact skills, speed and defensive versatility could make him valuable in a reserve role.

Adam Eaton hit a two-run home run in Tuesday's loss to the Rangers.

Eaton hit the homer, his third of the year, off Rangers starter Colby Lewis in the third inning. The homer was his only hit in four at-bats. It has been a struggle for Eaton this season, as he's hitting just .233/.289/.354 overall.

Jeff Samardzija was knocked around by the Rangers on Tuesday, allowing nine runs on 12 hits over five innings.

Samardzija served up two home runs among his 12 hits allowed. The loss was his first since April 29 after a month of May in which he went 3-0 with a 3.00 ERA. It hasn't been so pretty for the right-hander overall, as he's now 4-3 with a 4.68 ERA and 1.34 WHIP through 11 starts. He'll look to get back in the win column Sunday against the Tigers.

Jose Abreu (finger) is not in the White Sox starting lineup Tuesday night against the Rangers.

Abreu hasn't played since leaving Friday's game against the Astros with irritation in his right index finger. It's something that has bothered Abreu off and on over the first two months of the 2015 regular season. He'll aim to return to action on Wednesday.

White Sox shortstop prospect Tim Anderson delivered four hits and three steals Sunday in a win for Double-A Birmingham.

All of his hits were singles. He also scored two runs, upping his season total to 28. The 21-year-old speedster ranks second in the Southern League in steals (19) and 12th in batting average (.311). He's hit .417 during his six-game hitting streak. Anderson is Chicago's second-best prospect, according to a list compiled by

White Sox activated C Rob Brantly from the 15-day disabled list; optioned him to Double-A Birmingham.

Brantly is recovered from the avulsion fracture in his left thumb, but there's no place for him on the White Sox active roster. The 25-year-old catcher hasn't appeared in a major league game since 2013, when he batted just .211/.263/.265 in 67 games with the Marlins.

Jose Abreu (finger) expects to return to the White Sox lineup on Tuesday.

He left Friday's game after aggravating an existing finger injury, and sat out the remainder of the weekend as a precautionary measure. He'll have an extra day to rest with Monday's off-day before returning to the lineup.
May 31 - 8:51 PM

Adam LaRoche went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's win over the Astros.

LaRoche's solo homer off of Jake Buchanan in the seventh inning pushed the score to 6-0 White Sox. It would be the last run either team scored in the game. The home run was LaRoche's sixth of the season and gave him 22 RBI. LaRoche has struggled adjusting to his new surroundings, but he's shown signs of breaking out of his early slump and is now hitting .236/.365/.395. We expect those numbers to improve.
May 31 - 5:05 PM

John Danks pitched a complete game shutout in Sunday's 6-0 win over the Astros.

Gather 'round children, there's a tale to be told here. We might not see John Danks' line against the Astros again this season. Danks allowed 10 hits--including five for extra bases--without letting a run score. The southpaw also struck out six while walking just one. He ended the game the way he lived it: By allowing a double to Evan Gattis and walking Chris Carter before magically escaping trouble. While Danks and his owners will certainly take the win here, we're going to wager that the next time he allows 10 hits, the scoreboard isn't going to be filled up with zeroes. He'll take a 4.81 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 43/18 K/BB ratio over 57 innings into a home start against the Tigers next time he toes the rubber.
May 31 - 4:59 PM

Jose Abreu (finger) remained out of the White Sox' lineup Sunday.

Abreu left Friday's game with irritation in his right index finger and has now missed two straight starts. The White Sox are off Monday, so perhaps he'll be ready to go Tuesday after three days of rest. Adam LaRoche is at first base, Cole Gillespie is in the designated hitter spot and Gordon Beckham is at third base while Abreu sits.
May 31 - 11:46 AM

Adam Eaton went 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts in Saturday's loss to the Astros.

Eaton's mess of a season continues. He's now hitting .233/.292/.344 with just two homers and six RBI. He does have 26 runs scored. Be patient with him, as the talent's still there, but nobody will look down on you if you ride him on the pine until he shows some sign of breaking out of this horrific early season slump.
May 30 - 6:54 PM

Jose Quintana pitched a solid game against the Astros on Saturday, throwing 6 1/3 innings of one-run ball.

Quintana and Dallas Keuchel were locked in an old school pitcher's duel, with Quintana blinking first when Jonathan Villar hit a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning. The 26-year-old southpaw struck out seven and likely would have been able to pitch deeper if he hadn't walked four. Quintana now holds a 4.33 ERA and 1.36 WHIP. The numbers aren't particularly great, but he has gone at least six innings in six of his last seven starts, so the innings are there if nothing else. He'll take to the road against the Tigers in his next outing.
May 30 - 6:47 PM

Avisail Garcia (knee) is back in the White Sox starting lineup Saturday versus the Astros.

Garcia missed several games with discomfort in his right knee. The rest should do him some good in the long term. He's batting .327/.365/.456 with four home runs and 18 RBI in 39 games this season for the Pale Hose.
May 30 - 12:54 PM

Jose Abreu (finger) is not in the White Sox starting lineup Saturday against the Astros.

Abreu left Friday's game with irritation in his right index finger. It's something that has been lingering for a couple of weeks, but he could return Sunday.
May 30 - 12:51 PM

Jose Abreu (finger) is unlikely to play on Saturday.

The 28-year-old slugger was removed from Friday's game due to irritation in his right index finger and was sent for X-rays. Abreu initially sustained the injury two weeks ago during a game in Chicago and it has continued to bother him off and on since. Be sure to check the White Sox lineup before game time, but it would be surprising to see Abreu in there on Saturday.
