The opening game in the series with the Oakland A’s would be anything but dull. Adam Dunn would make his first appearance since being traded to Oakland and was given a warm welcome.
The Sox would send Hector Noesi to the mound office, with the support of Eric Surkamp,Daniel Webb, Ronald Belisario and Javy Guerra.

Santana had two hits and two RBI in the Twins' big inning, when they sent 14 batters to the plate and had nine hits against three relievers. The five hits set a season high for the rookie...

Now that we are a few weeks into the minor league season, let’s see how each team is doing and what players are off to hot starts and who are not.

With Rick Hahn's reshaping of the White Sox, many organizational holes have been filled with what are expected to be long-term solutions. Because of this, some guys at the minor league level are now far less crucial to the future of the ball club, while focus has shifted to others.
Here's an updated look at the situation playing out with the starting pitchers throughout...

The Chicago White Sox say they have claimed left-handed pitcher Eric Surkamp off waivers from the San Francisco Giants and lost infielder Brent Morel to the Toronto Blue Jays.
The 26-year-old Surkamp, a sixth-round pick by the Giants in the 2008 amateur draft, went 0-1 with a 23.63 ERA in one spot start for San Francisco last season that lasted only 2 2-3 innings on July 23 against...

According to the San Francisco Chronicle's Hank Schulman, the White Sox have claimed 26 year-old south paw Eric Surkamp off waivers from the Giants. While this may not seem like the most significant of moves right now, it could certainly be one that does have an impact on the 2014 season.

The Cincinnati offense once again over-powered the Giants starting pitcher as San Francisco fell to the Reds in Game 1 of the doubleheader 9-2.
It was déjà-vu for the Giants as Eric Surkamp, just one night after Tim Lincecum gave up eight runs in 3.2 innings, failed to make it out of the third inning. The Reds pounded Surkamp early and often, as they tagged him for nine hits, seven...
The Cincinnati Reds certainly felt at home at AT&T Park in the opener of this four-game series.
Now, it'll be official.

The Giants will keep trying to chip away at the NL West by welcoming the Cincinnati Reds to AT&T Park on Monday night. Tim Lincecum will make his first start after his no-hitter in San Diego, facing the team that no-hit the Giants in the beginning of this month.
Lincecum allowed six hits and three earned runs while striking out eight during Homer Bailey’s no-hitter on July...
Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle says infielder Freddy Sanchez has “plateaued” in his rehab, thus the decision to give him a cortisone shot. It’s very clear that Sanchez will not be ready for Opening Day. It’s time to see what Manny Burriss can do with his time at second base till the injured Sanchez can get back on the field. It’s unclear at this time as to...

Coming into 2011 the San Francisco Giants were the World Series Champions, but just as I predicted defending their title proved to be too much for this self-proclaimed band of misfits.
One Showtime reality show later and a 86-76 record, the Giants embarrassingly missed the playoffs in 2011. The party was over for San Francisco as nobody cared about last...
Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle says the San Francisco Giants are being extremely conservative with Ryan Vogelsong in his return from a strained back. Bruce Bochy said Vogelsong will get three spring starts, and the Giants are preparing to skip his first regular-season spot in the rotation if necessary.The good news is Eric Surkamp pitched three great innings against...
The San Francisco Giants are close to finalizing 2012 contracts with catcher Buster Posey, left-handed starter Madison Bumgarner and 17 others.
Bobby Evans, Giants vice president of baseball operations, says the one-year, non-guaranteed major league contracts will be completed Friday or Saturday. Others in the group with zero to three years' service time are reliever Dan Runzler...

The San Francisco Giants won 86 games last season. That is hardly a disaster. But the win total did keep the Giants from returning to the playoffs after the 2010 World Series title. The 86-win total was deceiving. The team actually out-performed their run differential by six games. So, the reality was that the Giants were the equivalent to a 80-win team. And it really was a Dr. Jekyll...
