Gordon Beckham will be back in the starting lineup on Friday, after the White Sox enjoyed Thursday's off day, and will get back to the business of trying to hold off Detroit in the Central Division in a weekend series against the Angels. Beckham was given Wednesday's game off, not only to get a breather, but also to give reserve infielder Orlando Hudson a chance to get some at-bats and playing time. But July wasn't exactly the greatest month for Beckham, as the third-year player hit only .188 (16-for-85) with no home runs and four RBI, after he had a solid May and June, hitting a combined .268 with nine home runs and 32 RBI. The reason Beckham continues to get most of the playing time, even with a bat that has gone ice cold lately? His defensive work. Along with shortstop Alexei Ramirez, third base coach Joe McEwing is seeing a combination that he feels can be one of the best in all the league with their glove work. "Seeing (Ramirez) from afar, I didn't ...

2011 seems long ago for Rios

Alex Rios quietly had a stellar first half, but the second half is now a little louder. The latest example of that came Friday night in the Chicago White Sox's 8-6, 10-inning win over the Los Angeles Angels, when Rios' second homer of the game was a walk-off shot. Rios is now hitting .318 with 18 homers, after looking like a bust last season, when he batted .227 with...

Chicago White Sox: Peavy strong in series win

Not to be outdone by newcomer Francisco Liriano’s strong performance on Tuesday, Jake Peavy dominated on the mound in the series finale as the Chicago White Sox won 3-2. Peavy gave up only one earned run over eight innings. After letting up one run in each of the first two innings (one resulting from a Peavy error), the hurler crushed the Minnesota offense for the remainder of...

Q&A: Jeff Manto, White Sox Hitting Coach

Jeff Manto stresses approach over mechanics and believes in letting a hitter be himself. The philosophy is paying dividends for the first-year Chicago White Sox hitting coach, as his team currently ranks sixth in MLB in runs scored and fifth in home runs. A big part of that success has been the reemergence of Adam Dunn and Alex Rios, who have flourished under his watch. Manto shared...

Dunn, Iannetta have monster collision

You’ve probably heard the term, irresistible force vs immovable object. That pretty much sums up the epic collision that took place when Chicago White Sox Adam Dunn was called out at home after Los Angeles Angels catcher Chris Iannetta held on to the ball on a play at the plate. Both of these dudes went crashing down and neither one was left standing after impact. It reminded...

White Sox again push back Sale's next start

For a "dead arm," Chris Sale said that his left appendage felt alive and well hours before the Chicago White Sox beat the Minnesota Twins 3-2 Wednesday afternoon, taking the rubber match of the three-game series. Even though Sale is feeling good, that didn't change the fact that manager Robin Ventura and pitching coach Don Cooper once again got together and juggled...

Interview: My Hero and White Sox Draft Pick Mitch Glasser

Mitch Glasser is not just living out his dream, he is living out mine. Born and raised in Chicago. Moved to Minnesota and then gets drafted by his favorite team, the Chicago White Sox. Seriously, I could not have scripted it any better. Mitch is a great guy and motivated by his dream of playing for the Sox (or running them someday). He also has deep Jewish roots which makes us at...

Twins aim for series win against White Sox

The Chicago White Sox have made up four games in the standings in just over a week to take over first place in the AL Central. Two series against the Minnesota Twins have certainly helped. The White Sox look to win their seventh straight series over the Twins in Wednesday's finale at Target Field. Chicago (56-47) was 1 12 games behind first-place Detroit before sweeping a...

White Sox 3, Twins 2

Jake Peavy struck out eight over eight smooth innings, Alejandro De Aza gave Chicago the lead in the eighth with an infield single off Scott Diamond's leg and the White Sox beat the Minnesota Twins 3-2 on Wednesday.

CHICAGO (AP) -- The Los Angeles Angels are playing their Friday night game against the Chicago White under protest.

Angels-White Sox Preview

While the Chicago White Sox apparently tried to bring Zack Greinke to the South Side before the trade deadline, the Los Angeles Angels ultimately wound up with one of the most coveted arms on the market. Coming off a hard-luck loss, Greinke again tries for his first win with his new team Friday night as the visiting Angels open a three-game set with the AL Central-leading White...
