Coming into the four-game series against Tampa Bay with question marks Erik Johnson and Andre Rienzo slated to pitch, a split seemed like a best case scenario. Factor in that Johnson would get demoted to AAA after Friday’s start and a 29-year-old minor league lifer would be called up to oppose David Price on Sunday, and even that seemed like a pipe dream.
However, behind some Friday...
The White Sox have a record of 13-13 and they’ve gotten a hot start from Jose Abreu, who has set the MLB record for most HRs and RBIs in April as a rookie. The question mark since the start of the season has been the pitching. To me, the problem has been offseason acquisition Felipe Paulino.
Paulino has been on the DL since April 19 but before then, he was getting hammered by his...
After a four-game losing streak that saw the White Sox bats go absent, the offense came back to life to avoid a sweep at the hands of the Texas Rangers.
But first we’ll discuss Sunday afternoon’s starter, Erik Johnson.
Johnson struggled mightily in Kansas City on their Opening Day but gradually improved the next two times out. In his most recent outing at home versus the Red...
After the White Sox blew out the Rockies 15-3 to even the series on Tuesday night, Colorado returned the favor on Wednesday, beating the south siders 10-4 to take the rubber match. It was close for most of this one, though.

Even a Super Bowl champ couldn’t get in the way of another Tribe victory.
Indians bats banged out six runs on 11 hits to edge Texas Monday afternoon, 6-5. To get things started, former Kansas City outfielder Jeff Francoeur collected a two out, two run single off Rangers starter Colby Lewis in the...

Pitching Prospect Erik Johnson has a great opportunity to earn one of the two open spots in the Chicago White Sox starting rotation come Opening Day.
Whether he will or won’t, depends on his performance in Spring Training, but he certainly has the support of Assistant GM Buddy Bell:
#WhiteSox Buddy Bell on Erik Johnson: “he has a very good chance of leaving Spring Training...
I’m not sure that this team is rebuilding, but just in case they ever decide that they are, here are some of the Chicago White Sox top prospects. We did not include Abreu because we have reason to believe that he will be on the 25 man roster come April, and that reason is: $68 MIL. The list is in no particular order.
