Injury Updates: Garcia, Lindstrom Set To Rehab; Bad News for Jones

The early goings of the 2014 regular season was filled with several injuries for the White Sox, three of the most major of which involved Avisail Garcia, Matt Lindstrom, and Nate Jones. Two of the three were at the time assumed to be season-ending injuries, while the other was thought to me much more short-term. Well, as we head into August it’s actually the two we didn’t think...

Yanks and White Sox talking about Danks, but gap still exists

The Yankees and White Sox are still discussing John Danks as a trade possibility, but the latest word is the sides were still apart in terms of the package New York would send back. Danks, who is 9-6 with a 4.40 ERA, is a lefty the Yankees would like to have, but with two years to go on his $65-million, five-year contract, his trade value may be somewhat limited. The Yankees have...

Viciedo’s Numbers Down There With the Worst of ‘Em

Over his last 92 at-bats, the once hot Dayan Viciedo has cooled off mightily, posting a .207 batting average and .598 OPS. And, with Robin Ventura hinting at the possibility of an Avisail Garcia return in September, Viciedo’s lack of offensive and defensive production could make him an odd man out in the Sox outfield. Viciedo’s problem begins and ends with his plate discipline...

Late offensive surge lifts Quintana, White Sox past Tigers

Jose Quintana has been a good sport the past 2 1/2 seasons whenever it comes to his legendary lack of run support. When asked after previous outings if the team’s inability to score leaves him frustrated, Quintana usually defers and instead notes a belief that one day it will be his turn. Quintana’s opportunity came Tuesday night — albeit late — as the White Sox exploded...
