White Sox drop the series to the Birds in a 4-3 squeaker

Ervin Santana struggles in his third straight start in a row

It was a snoozer of a game in Baltimore tonight as the Chicago White Sox comeback fell one run short, as the Orioles took a series between also-rans by a 4-3 score.

Ervin Santana almost made it out the first inning giving up zero runs. Dwight Smith Jr. hit a two-out double right over Adam Engel’s head, which was followed up by another double from Renato Núñez. The O’s went up 1-0, but the scoring didn't stop there, as Rio...

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 53: Andrew Perez

Ervin Santana aims for the first strong start of his South Side career

Tonight in Baltimore, the White Sox look to take the series against the Baltimore Orioles before heading back home to Chicago.

It’s veteran Ervin Santana on the mound tonight for the White Sox. Santana’s ERA sits at a hefty 10.38, as his last two starts haven't been so hot. We can only hope he can turn things around and keep the Sox in the game. (The last two games I’ve covered the Sox have won, so hopefully my...

James McCann Proving to Be More Valuable Catcher

White Sox catcher having a good start to the season and proving to be more valuable than the team’s current starting catcher.

Value Survey: Game 21

Tim Anderson refuses to relinquish his status as the top surplus value player for the White Sox to begin 2019

It’s early, and Baseball Prospectus isn’t even issuing WARP for pitchers yet, but with about 13% of the season in the books, let’s revisit the value survey!

Right out of the gate, the Chicago White Sox have six position players boasting positive surplus values (or SV, which is WAR translated into a dollar value offset by salary) and seven pitchers. That’s 13 positive values...

The Mount Rushmore of White Sox

Sure, you have to look all the way back to 2012 for the last time the Chicago White Sox had a winning record, and 2008 if you want to check for a postseason appearance. Despite the recent lack of success, the White Sox have had a plethora of legends don the Sox uniform, which got me thinking — who would make the Mount Rushmore of White Sox legends? There are many options, but only four spots available. Before I get to mine, as Ken “The Hawk” Harrelson would say, you at home select...

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 55: Jacob Lindgren

If healthy, this southpaw reliever could make a difference for the big club

Jacob Lindgren
5´11´´
210 pounds
Throws: Left
Age: 26

Lindgren is another lefty pitching acquisition for Rick Hahn, and this time it comes with little risk and a lot of possible reward. After Lindgren was taken in the second round of the 2014 draft by the New York Yankees, he started his meteoric rise to the majors, making it all the way to AA in his draft...

Draft prospects you should know: Landon Sims, South Forsyth H.S. (Cumming, Ga.) RHSP

This righthander could be second-day gold in this year’s draft

When you have the No. 3 overall pick, it’s never too soon to take a quick peek into this year’s MLB draft. This year’s draft class is loaded with excellent hitting prospects, but is relatively weak on the pitching side.

Nova rocked by Orioles in lopsided loss

Nothing to see here

The wheels fell off for starter Iván Nova and the Chicago White Sox early on in Baltimore as the Orioles ran away with this one, winning 9-1. The Orioles used the long ball, and they used it often.

In the first, Nova pitched around a leadoff double and a walk to escape unscathed. Unfortunately, that was as good as the White Sox’s situation would get.

Chris Davis (yeah, that guy who had that streak) got the Orioles in the board with a single in the bottom of the second,...

Inside Yoan Moncada’s Progress and Keys for the Future

White Sox fans, you’re welcome. I did it. I fixed Yoan Moncada. Well, not really. But a month ago I did write some advice for Moncada to follow, and so far he has. Here’s what I wrote on Mar. 26: “It’s difficult to teach a player to swing more, just like it is to teach them to swing less, but again I think some progress can be made. If Yoan can get his Swing% up to 44%, he’ll reduce strikeouts and consequently see a bump in on-base percentage from the extra pitches.” It turns out...

The White Sox look to keep their momentum from yesterday’s 12-2 shellacking of the Orioles

After easily their most lopsided victory of the season, the Chicago White Sox (9-12) look to keep it going in the second game against the Orioles (8-16). In the series opener, the White Sox put up three four-run innings en route to a 12-2 win.

Today, Chicago turns to Iván Nova, who has had two quality starts and two clunkers so far this season. He enters with a 6.23 ERA over 21 2?3 innings. In his...

Rankings: How our White Sox stack up across the media

Fresh off a 12-2 thrashing of the Orioles last night, the White Sox now find themselves 9-12 and 4.5 games back from the Minnesota Twins. Fun fact: The White Sox are the only perfect team at night games, going 5-0. It’s been a bit of a roller coaster ride so far this season, but the White Sox bats seem to be coming alive. If only their pitching can continue to make strides as well. Throughout the season, I’ll be providing a weekly update of where the White Sox stand in the rankings...

While Luis Robert and Steele Walker continue their MVP of the week streak, Nicky Delmonico and Gavin Sheets are starting to break out

The Charlotte Knights are still on top of the their division and had some transaction news. First, Ryan Cordell was recalled last week after continuing his hot hitting in Triple-A, with Daniel Palka sent down in the corresponding move. Palka already has more hits in three Triple-A games than he had all season in the majors. Meanwhile, Zack Burdi is back from...

Jose Abreu (finally) has a big game for White Sox

Jose Abreu I don't know that Jose Abreu is necessarily a slow starter. His career March/April slash line is .258/.326/.486, and he has 30 home runs and 100 RBIs in 141 career games during the first month of the season. That's respectable. He is, however, a notorious warm-weather hitter. Look at his August career slash line (.331/.391/.575) and his July career slash line (.300/.366/.510). Abreu's pattern is characterized by a mediocre or less-than-mediocre first half, followed by a torrid...
