Even as the Chicago White Sox's offense struggled, consistent efforts from the starting rotation seemed to keep the team afloat. Now that's gone, too, and Chicago continues to tumble. The Minnesota Twins look to again take advantage of the woeful White Sox and deal John Danks another rough outing Thursday at Target Field. Chicago's starters were solid during the team's 24-24 start, going 18-14 with a 3.43 ERA. But the White Sox have since lost 16 of 21 as the rotation has stumbled, posting a 2-12 record and a 4.77 ERA. This past five-game turn has seen that group surrender 18 runs and 33 hits through 27 innings. The lineup continues to show few signs of life, averaging 3.5 runs in the last 21 games. Even Chris Sale - the rotation's most steady presence - was not immune to damage in a 7-4 loss to the Twins on Wednesday.

Heath Optioned to AAA, Omogrosso Recalled

In what’s surely to be the most groundbreaking move in Major League Baseball this season, the White Sox optioned Deunte Heath to AAA Charlotte after yesterday’s loss in Minnesota, and Brian Omogrosso was recalled to take his place in the bullpen. Ok, I’m being sarcastic. This is pretty insignificant when it comes to roster moves, as we are talking about a team basically...

Twins dominate in White Sox sweep

Fantasy Baseball Dingers and Stingers: June 19

Adam Dunn is riding a stellar hot streak. (Photo credit) Update from last week: Matt Carpenter continues to be consistent and still plays every day. He is an on-base machine.
