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 the game. Despite the strong showing, Peavy needed every strike he threw since the Twins’ starter Scott Diamond was equally as tough.

The White Sox managed to take the lead in the eighth off the bat of Alejandro de Aza. With Tyler Flowers on third, the hard-hitting leadoff batter hit a line drive right back at the mound. The ball bounced off of Diamond and he was unable to make a play at either home or first.
The Twins didn’t let the Sox walk away with the series, though. There were two outs with runners on the corners in the bottom of the eighth. Joe Mauer was at the plat...

Chicago White Sox starter John Danks will miss the rest of the year due to a shoulder injury, and he'll have surgery on Monday. Danks hasn't pitched in the majors since May 19th, after which he was placed on the DL with soreness in his shoulder. An MRI taken after a rehab start revealed a torn muscle in Danks's left shoulder. Danks's tear is a grade one tear, which...
John Danks is done for the season because of a left shoulder strain, and the Chicago White Sox starting pitcher is scheduled to have exploratory surgery Monday to find out what has caused the injury to linger for months.
The left-hander hasn't pitched in the majors since May 19. In nine starts this year, Danks is 3-4 with a 5.70 ERA. He's in the first year of a five-year...
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...
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.
The Chicago White Sox were hoping that the final late-season addition to the rotation would come from within, with the return of left-hander John Danks from the disabled list. That won't be happening. Danks will have season-ending surgery on his left shoulder, the team announced Tuesday. He had been sidelined since May 20 due to a shoulder strain, and he experienced a setback...

The trade deadline came and went a couple of hours ago, and the White Sox stood pat with their current team.
While this may have frustrated some fans a bit, as the hype surrounding the deadline...
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...
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...
MINNEAPOLIS Everything about it looked strange as Francisco Liriano took the mound Tuesday. The black and gray uniform. The No. 58.Oh, and not to mention, he was pitching to A.J. Pierzynski, a catcher he was once traded for.Yet here Liriano was, making his White Sox debut three days after the Minnesota Twins traded him to rival Chicago. During his seven seasons with the Twins, Liriano...
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...
MINNEAPOLIS Minnesota Twins third baseman Danny Valencia has only been back in the majors for five games, so the sample size is small. But after a home run Wednesday in a 4-3 loss to the Chicago White Sox, it appears Valencia's bat may be coming back after spending most of the season with Triple-A Rochester.
Valencia took White Sox starter Jake Peavy deep in the second inning...
