Unless things don't turn around soon, the underachieving Chicago White Sox could be in for a shakeup. Looking to bounce back from another frustrating defeat, the White Sox hope for something positive during Friday's doubleheader against the visiting Cleveland Indians. Chicago (32-43) felt it was capable of challenging for the AL Central title this year, but it's last in the division, ranks near bottom of the majors with 277 runs and close to the top with 55 errors. "Each night it's something different. It's definitely frustrating," pitcher John Danks told the White Sox's official website. "We're way too talented to be where we are right now." An Internet report surfaced Thursday stating the White Sox will make everybody other than ace Chris Sale and veteran Paul Konerko available for potential trades. Chicago managed four hits and shortstop Alexei Ramirez committed his AL-leading 13th error to contribute to the New York Mets scoring all their runs in the fifth inning of Wednesday's 3-0 loss. The White Sox were shut out for the seventh time, and fourth during the stretch where they've dropped 19 of 27. "Listless offense," manager Robin Ventura said. "I don't know the reason for it, but it can't happen. "It's just unacceptable. You've got to put something on the board." Outfielder Alex Rios could be a serious trade target, but he's batted .182 (8 for 44) with no homers in 12 games after hitting .356 in his previous 10. He's 3 for 19 against the Indians this season. Chicago has dropped three of five this year to Cleveland (40-38), which is coming off a four-game split at Baltimore. Lonnie Chisenhall homered for one of his three hits as the Indians lost a one-run lead when the Orioles scored five times in the sixth inning during Thursday's 7-3 loss. "It happened so fast," said Chisenhall, who is batting .444 (8 for 18) in five games after he went 0 for 7 in his first two since being recalled from the minors last week. Teammate and suburban Chicago native Jason Kipnis is batting .359 with 21 RBIs while reaching base safely in 29 straight games. In the opener, the Indians hand the ball to Trevor Bauer (1-2, 2.76 ERA), who will be recalled to make his fourth spot start of the season. The third overall pick by Arizona in 2011, Bauer allowed three runs in 6 1-3 innings of a 7-0 loss to the New York Yankees in his most recent major league start May 13. The right-hander, 3-2 with a 4.13 ERA in 12 starts at Triple-A, will be making his first appearance against the White Sox. He'll be opposed by Hector Santiago (3-5, 3.03), who allowed a home run and two other hits over eight innings of a 9-1 win at Kansas City on Friday. The left-hander has a 2.29 ERA while winning two of his last three starts, and is 1-0 with a 2.61 ERA in two against the Indians. Teammate Jose Quintana (3-2, 3.83) takes the mound in the nightcap to make up the April 23 postponement between the clubs. The left-hander has not factored in the decision of five straight starts, but is 2-0 with a 2.00 ERA in three versus Cleveland. He's allowed two runs and five hits while going 1-0 in two against the Indians in 2013. Quintana gave up two runs in 5 1-3 innings of a 3-2 win at Kansas City on Saturday. Cleveland will call up Carlos Carrasco (0-3, 7.78) as its 26th man to take the mound in the second game. The right-hander allowed three runs and walked four in 4 2-3 innings of a 5-3 loss to Minnesota on Sunday. He's 0-3 with a 6.15 ERA in four starts against the White Sox.
