Source: Kyle Rivas/Getty Images North America Paul Konerko will not return to the lineup for the Chicago White Sox until at least Sunday. Tightness in the back of the 37-year-old first basemen has kept him out of action since last Sunday. On Thursday Konerko received six injections and had an MRI done on his back. Konerko passed along via CSN Chicago that he would not attempt to play until Sunday. Thus far the White Sox have not made public what was discovered during the MRI. White Sox manager Robin Ventura has regularly played Konerko at DH this season. Of the 66 games that Konerko has appeared in only 34 have come at first. Prior to missing time this week Konerko had been on a seven game hitting streak which pulled his average up to .253 on the season to go along with seven home runs and 30 RBI. If the White Sox do opt to place Konerko on the DL they will do it retroactively meaning Konerko would be eligible to return on July 9.

With Omogrosso Out, Simon Castro Gets His 1st Shot

During spring training, one of the most attractive prospects on the White Sox was starter Simon Castro. And now, after another failed stint in the bullpen from Brian Omogrosso, Castro is getting his first chance to make an impression with the MLB team.

White Sox Jake Peavy plays catch for first time since fracture

Jake Peavy has cleared the first major hurdle on his path to recovery.  The former ace suffered a fractured rib earlier this month and has been allowing the bone to heal while resting.  He has now reportedly moved on to playing some light catch.

Dunn Heating Up at the Right Time

We’ve discussed a lot in the recent days and weeks who probably is and who should be on the White Sox’ trade block. And, hint hint, we’re nowhere near done. Although June, like May has been a mess for the Sox, there have been a few bright spots from certain individuals. Since it looks like the team is going to try to deal just about everybody they can, it looks like if...

Indians in Chicago for doubleheader

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...

Foul ball scares female White Sox fan behind home plate

Two blonde female Chicago White Sox fans were deep in conversation behind home plate with the man next to them when New York Mets CF Juan Lagares fouled off a pitch that hit the Miller Lite sign in front of them.  The two girls jumped and you can see one of them scream and then cover her mouth.  The man next to them jumped as well but not nearly as much as the two women.  This...

Woman behind home plate jumps, screams after foul ball drills backstop (video)

During Wednesday’s game between the New York Mets and Chicago White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field, a woman seated behind home plate, who wasn’t paying attention to the action right in front of her as she was jibber-jabbing with the man seated next to her, had the ever-living crap scared out of her when a [...]The post Woman behind home plate jumps, screams after foul ball drills...

Trading Vets Easier Said Than Done

With the White Sox in full meltdown mode, media, fans, and bloggers have started to speculate about which members of the Sox could be sent elsewhere in exchange for younger help.  With each passing day and the losses and errors mounting up, the Sox fan base seems ready to part with anyone and everyone not named Chris Sale.  Trading veterans for prospects seems to be what...

Pitcher Spotlight: Chris Sale

I’d like to introduce a new feature at FanGraphs: the pitcher spotlight.  While I will continue to try to highlight unique skills or aspects of the sport in other pieces, Major League Baseball is overflowing with quality pitching and interesting prospects worth addressing.  To cover a wider range of pitchers, these posts will be a regular but relatively brief look at a pitcher’s...

Cleveland Indians and Chicago White Sox combine for 29 runs

A wild game it was at U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago on an overcast Friday evening. It was far from a pitchers’ duel in the first game of a doubleheader between the Cleveland Indians and Chicago White Sox, as the two teams combined to score 29 runs. The Cleveland Indians drove home 19 of those 29 runs thanks in large part to every one of their batters logging at least one hit....

June 28: Indians 19, White Sox 10; Indians 9, White Sox 8

After an off day on Thursday, the White Sox were set with two games against the Cleveland Indians on Friday. And you probably wouldn't be too shocked if I told you the Sox lost both of those games. But you would be quite surprised if I told you they did so while scoring 18 runs. In the first inning of game one, the Sox sent 11 men to the plate and scored five of them...
