Tigers 4, White Sox 3: Rally falls short

Chicago scores three runs in the ninth but fails to drive in the tying run 90 feet away.

For eight innings, the Detroit Tigers dominated this game thanks to a career performance from pitcher Buck Farmer. His fastball velocity at times proved too much for the Sox hitters to handle, as Farmer pitched 6.1 IP 3 H 0 R 2 BB 11 K.

Derek Holland for the White Sox had a good pitching performance as he only allowed one run, a homer to John Hicks, over six innings. It was just that Holland to escape...

White Sox 3, Tigers 0: Good first impressions

In the first inning, Danish allowed an Andrew Romaine single and walked Alex Avila to put the...

Tyler Saladino hits DL; Adam Engel gets a shot

Speedy center fielder overcomes slow start for first crack at majors

Tyler Saladino’s back had limited him to just two games over the last 10 days, and even then, he couldn’t get halfway through Friday night’s game against Detroit. With a doubleheader today, the White Sox decided against the short bench and placed Saladino on the disabled list with back spasms.

Under other circumstances, this could have been a potential Wally Pipping with Yoan Moncada. But with Moncada just coming of...

Sporcle Saturday: Top WHIP relievers for the Sox

Who’s in the top 25?

As I was browsing around Baseball Reference for a different research project, I found myself taking a look at some various reliever statistics for the 2017 White Sox. One thing that caught my eye (beyond Tommy Kahnle’s gaudy 16.5 k/9) is that there are currently three relievers for the Sox with a WHIP of 1.0 or below; as you have probably guessed: David Robertson (1.0), Tommy Kahnle (.778), and Anthony Swarzak (.563).*

Now, I know: there are more complete analytic...
