Dylan Axelrod had a dominant outing against the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday in the Chicago White Sox's 8-1 win, and then he found himself packing his bags for Class AA Birmingham. He might want to bring only a toothbrush, because manager Robin Ventura said that the pitcher would be back on the big-league roster by next week when rosters expand. Axelrod (2-2, 4.93 ERA) went 7 1/3 innings Wednesday, allowing just one run on three hits, walking four and fanning five. The reason the Sox had to make the move was backup catcher Tyler Flowers will be gone Thursday with his wife about to have a baby, so the Sox will need an extra player for the bench. Ventura did say that while Axelrod is still penciled in the rotation with Gavin Floyd on the shelf due to an elbow flexor injury, and even bigger news from the manager and pitching coach Don Cooper was that Chris Sale was staying on a regular schedule for his next start. Sale lasted just four innings in the Tuesday loss to the O...

With Robin Ventura in his first season after replacing Ozzie Guillen and a roster that has a different look this year, nobody expected the White Sox to be in first place in the AL Central at the end of August. The division was supposed to belong to the Tigers, but Chicago has overachieved and currently leads Detroit by two games. From the look of it, they’re having fun along...
White Sox rookie Dylan Axelrod took a three-hitter into the eighth inning and Chicago spoiled the Baltimore debut of Joe Saunders, scoring seven runs off the left-hander in an 8-1 victory over the Orioles on Wednesday night.
Gordon Beckham had three hits and three RBIs to help Chicago snap a five-game road losing streak. Alexei Ramirez went 3 for 4 with two RBIs and scored twice...
The Chicago White Sox had a lot of moving parts with the roster Thursday, but they didn't score a whole lot of runs in a 5-3 loss to the Baltimore Orioles, although two in the ninth made a one-sided game look closer than it was. Before Chicago lost for the third time in the four-game series against the Orioles, manager Robin Ventura and general manager Ken Williams got together...
Kenny Williams is no stranger to having his name in the news. In the past few years it has usually been in a negative light such as last season when the Chicago White Sox General Manager had a very public feud with Ozzie Guillen. However, due to the White Sox’ success this season and the role that the GM has had in making that happen, his name is being tossed around in conversations...
The Chicago White Sox got shut out by the Orioles 6-0 handing the Sox their second loss in a row. The Whites are letting the Tigers back into the race for the American League Central. The White Sox didn’t see the best outing from Chris Sale who has had better starts on the mound this season, Sale gave up 6 hits and 4 runs in the 4 innings he worked. The Orioles would get 7 good...
The last thing the White Sox needed was more problems in the rotation, but once lefty ace Chris Sale was pulled Tuesday after a season-low four innings in Chicago's eventual 6-0 loss to the Baltimore Orioles, the writing was on the wall that the first-place team in the AL Central has starting-pitching trouble. Sale's night started out well enough with four strikeouts of...
The Rays are notorious for sporting wild and wacky clothes on road trips. Now, it looks like the White Sox have taken a cue. Before leaving for Baltimore on Sunday, the team rocked crazy-colored golf pants for a Caddyshack-themed road trip. Former Red Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis joined the action with his slacks, and it was quite the fashion -- or lack thereof -- statement....
With his team in last place, Miami Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen says he'll make at least one change in his approach next year: He'll be less patient with injured players.
''Same philosophy, less bull,'' Guillen said Wednesday. ''That's going to work better.''
As the Marlins stagger toward the end of a disappointing season, Guillen said...

The Tampa Bay Rays became notorious for their fashion-themed road trips in recent years. With Manager Joe Maddon leading the charge, the squad has been styled in looks from to pajamas to “Seattle Grunge” to those infamous “BRaysers.” Following in the footsteps of the Rays, the latest road trip for the Chicago White Sox had the team dressed up in dramatic fashion.
Though the Chicago White Sox have struggled on the road of late, and certainly at Comerica Park, they might be catching the Detroit Tigers at the right time.
The AL Central-leading White Sox look to avoid a fifth straight loss to the second-place Tigers by handing them a fourth consecutive defeat Friday night.
If Detroit (69-61) is to reduce or potentially erase Chicago's three...
We've gone into great detail about Hawk Harrelson's often juvenile rants about MLB umpires, but Steve Rosenbloom of the Chicago Tribune (sub required) had an interesting thought about Harrelson's rants: are his rampages hurting the White Sox?
Rosenbloom hypothesizes that Harrelson's vicious, anti-umpire diatribes are actually hurting the Sox on the infield...
I find it pretty interesting that some people sometimes confuse power hitting OFs Ted Kluszewski and Greg Luzinski. They both did play for the Chicago White Sox during a portion of their careers. Kluszewski led the White Sox to the World Series in 1959, where they lost to the Dodgers. Luzinski helped them to the postseason in 1983, where they lost to the Orioles...
