The White Sox, who have a plethora of talent, have not lived up to lofty expectations. New manager Robin Ventura inherited a team that was successful and he has quickly turned them into non-contenders. The White Sox may be sellers at the deadline because of that, reports Jon Heyman of CBS. The White Sox haven't dealt with many injuries this year. They have just underperformed. Paul Konerko is having a down year, their hitters aren't driving in runs and their starting pitching hasn't lived up to standard.  Heyman mentions some names in his article of who may get dealt. He says to keep an eye on second baseman Gordan Beckham, outfielder Alex Rios, pitcher Jesse Crain and shortstop Alexei Ramirez. It isn't likely that all of them get traded, but it is likely at least two of them get dealt.  The White Sox don't appear to be going anywhere. They are 29-41 and 10.5 games out of first place in the AL Central. It would be smart for them to trade some of their key players for prospects. Building for the future may be the best thing for them to do at the moment.  Follow mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?

Time for the Chicago White Sox To Start Selling For The Future

Time for the Chicago White Sox to start selling for the future. You have heard me talk preseason with optimism about the White Sox chances in the division.  Detroit Tigers have Justin Verlander, Max Scherzer, Miguel Cabrera, Prince Fielder and were favorites but they still had (and still do) bullpen problems.  I thought if the pitching and defense repeated last years performance...

Chicago White Sox continue decline, rebuild may be coming

The Chicago White Sox continued their free fall into baseball obscurity on Thursday after suffering three consecutive defeats to the Minnesota Twins.  The club has now lost seven of their last eight games and look to be sellers at the upcoming trade deadline. According to the Chicago Tribune’s Mark Gonzales, teams have begun contacting the White Sox about the availability of players...

Chicago White Sox bats make some noise in win

The Chicago White Sox kicked off their series in Kansas City with a powerful 9-1 win. Coming off the heels of a sweep at the hands of the Twins, the  White Sox (30-41) were able to roll over Royals’ starter Jeremy Guthrie as they established an early lead. Guthrie walked three of the first five Sox hitters. Paul Konerko patiently drew a walk to bring a run home and Conor Gillaspie’s...

White Sox Great Carlos "El Caballo" Lee Retires

Carlos Lee announced his retirement on Friday after 14 seasons in the Major Leagues with five different teams.  Lee spent 6 years with the White Sox and played more games for the Sox than any other team during his career. While he hasn’t donned the silver and black since 2004, Lee is fondly remembered for his time on the South Side and we look back at his Sox career...

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...

Getting to Know the Future: Arroyo, McCully, & McCray

In our first edition of the "Getting to know the future" series, we took a look at two Birmingham relievers. Though we're staying in AA with the Barons, we're now shifting to the starting rotation, where one 24 year-old and two 25 year-olds that you probably don't know much about are also finding success: Spencer Arroyo (pictured below), Nick McCully, and...

White Sox 3, Royals 2

Dayan Viciedo led...

June 23: Royals 7, White Sox 6

Going for a sweep, yes, that's right a sweep in Kansas City were the White Sox Sunday afternoon. Unfortunately, well, they were the White Sox. The game started off quickly for the White Sox thanks to Adam Dunn. In the bottom of the first inning, he drove in Alejandro De Aza and Alexei Ramirez on an RBI single. And then in the third inning, he launched his 20th...

Ramirez Never Rests...Literally

Throughout his time with the White Sox, Alexei Ramirez has been graced with some nicknames. The most common is certainly “The Cuban Missile,” but my father and mother like to call him “Bones” and “The Cuban Skeleton” due to his lanky frame. Despite being poked fun of for his skinny body type, Alexei Ramirez could be earning a new nickname this season: “Iron Man...

June 21: White Sox 8, Royals 1

If there was ever a game that ended with a strange, unexpected result, it was this game. Since joining the Royals, Jeremy Guthrie had a 0.40 ERA against the White Sox. But on Friday night, all bets were off as the offense came alive early and often. The first inning went as follows ... Alejandro De Aza walk Alexei Ramirez double Adam Dunn walk ...

June 22: White Sox 3, Royals 2

After an evening full of offense for the White Sox, they brought us back to a familar sight: a pitcher's duel. The Royals drew first blood off of Sox' starter Jose Quintana thanks to a Mike Moustakas RBI-double in the bottom of the second inning. After Conor Gillaspie and Jeff Keppinger RBI singles in the top of the fourth inning, the White Sox took a 2-1 lead...
