ERIK JOHNSON RUMORS & GOSSIP

James Shields has completely imploded for White Sox

James Shields was rocked by the Cleveland Indians on Saturday, marking the fourth straight start where he has struggled. His poor pitching since joining the Chicago White Sox has to leave them feeling completely unsatisfied over their trade. Shields allowed seven hits and was charged with eight earned runs over 1.2 innings in Cleveland, failing to get out of the second inning. He...

Chicago White Sox: bullpen set to destroy 2015 season

Jeff Samardzija provides them with that illusive number two starter that they have struggled finding to pair up with their...

Sox Take Three of Four from Rays in Impressive Fashion

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.

However, behind some Friday...

Chicago White Sox: Solving the Felipe Paulino problem

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.

Paulino has been on the DL since April 19 but before then, he was getting hammered by his...

White Sox Bullpen Gives Rockies the Rubber Match Late ☆

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.

Chicago White Sox Top Prospects

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. 1.
