White Sox-Twins Preview

Fighting through another disappointing season, the Chicago White Sox have had a bit of a fire sale lately while shipping veterans to contenders and clearing some payroll. There have been some bright spots such as the improvement of Hector Noesi, who takes the mound Tuesday night in the opener of a two-game road series with the last-place Minnesota Twins.

White Sox snap seven-game losing streak with win over Indians

Once struggling for his major league life, Hector Noesi has at the least joined the conversation to be part of the 2015 White Sox rotation. The right-hander delivered seven sharp innings on Wednesday night and with the aid of Jose Abreu helped the White Sox snap a seven-game losing streak with a 3-2 victory over the Cleveland Indians at U.S. Cellular Field.

Daily DraftKings Picks: Friday, Aug 15

Yesterday’s late-game lineup was constructed from an extremely small set of six games. It scored 124.50 points and finished in the 82nd percentile of all Moonshot entries. Originally I thought it was going to be a big day as Adam LaRoche, Bryce Harper, and Jhonny Peralta all homered in their first at-bats, but after combining for 48 points in those three at-bats the trio contributed...

Last Place Rangers Take the Rubber Match As Offense Leaves Sale Hanging

On Sunday, the White Sox began a three-game series at home against the Major League-worst Texas Rangers. The series looked promising at first, as Rangers’ ace Yu Darvish would be on the bench for all three games after another strong outing on Saturday (7 IP, 4 H, 2 BB, 8 K). With Hector Noesi, John Danks, and Chris Sale scheduled to pitch, the White Sox were in prime position to...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Tuesday, August 5

Yesterday was a good showing for me on DraftKings. I entered three lineups, all of which placed. In my Official Lineup, which was actually the lowest scoring of the three, Corey Kluber dominated and Kevin Gausman rebounded after a slow start to contribute a decent point total. I correctly pegged my Indians stack with both Yan Gomes and Lonnie Chisenhall homering and Michael Brantley...

Sox in Enemy Territory – Games 2 and 3

The White Sox took to the field for game two of the series with high hopes after winning game one. Hector Noesi against Max Scherzer was going to be a real pitchers duel. Noesi has been building on some great outings and this one would need to be one of his best for the Sox to have a chance. An hour’s rain delay would be the hiccup that the Sox did not need. the bottom of the first...

Tigers' bats boom again -- briefly

DETROIT -- The Tigers' offense didn't wake up for long Wednesday night, but it did plenty of damage before hitting the snooze button again in a 7-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox. After a feeble weekend performance in Anaheim and a 11-4 loss to the White Sox on Tuesday night at Comerica Park, things didn't get much better when Austin Jackson struck out on eight pitches...

The White Sox had a busy Thursday ahead of the second half of the regular season getting underway Friday evening.

As fill-in starters, both have been tremendous for this team, but it’d be silly...

Noesi sharp as White Sox blank Mariners

White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper altered the release point for Hector Noesi, then he tinkered with his follow through, and ultimately he has rebuilt his confidence. The 27-year-old right-hander joined the Sox off waivers from the Rangers on April 25 with an ERA of 14.21. After Sunday's 1-0 victory over the Mariners, Noesi's ERA dipped to a much more respectable 4.90...
