  • White Sox's Gavin Sheets: Losing work versus righties

    Sheets will start in right field and bat second Sunday against the Royals.

    Though he'll occupy a prominent spot in the batting order in the series finale in Kansas City, Sheets still appears to be on the outside looking in for a regular spot in the White Sox lineup. He didn't start in either of the first two games of the series, with the Royals bringing righties to the hill for both contests. With Andrew Vaughn and Eloy Jimenez locked in as the White Sox's primary starters at first base and designated hitter, respectively, and Andrew Benintendi and Tommy Pham typically serving as the team's starters in the corner outfield, Sheets look like he'll need an injury or a trade to get steadier playing time.

  • White Sox's Andrew Benintendi: Not in Sunday's lineup

    Benintendi is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Royals.

    Benintendi has gone 5-for-11 with a homer over his past three games but will sit for Sunday's series finale in Kansas City. Tommy Pham will shift to left field while Gavin Sheets receives a start in right against Royals righty Seth Lugo.

  • White Sox's Paul DeJong: Out of Sunday's lineup

    DeJong is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Royals.

    DeJong started the previous 12 games but will sit Sunday after he posted a .143 average and 32.6 percent strikeout rate during that span. The veteran shortstop has made just one of his past four starts at the position, as he's seen more action at third base of late while Nicky Lopez works more at shortstop. DeJong is a prime candidate to be traded ahead of the July 30 deadline, but he's hurting his trade value with a .442 OPS this month.

  • White Sox's Jonathan Cannon: Completes six innings in loss

    Cannon allowed four runs on eight hits and no walks while striking out four batters over six innings in a loss to the Royals on Saturday.

    Cannon looked like he could be in for a short outing after giving up four runs through two frames, but he recovered thereafter and didn't allow any additional runners to score for the rest of his start. The right-hander completed exactly six innings for the third straight appearance, though he has just one quality start during that span. Cannon has been doing enough to maintain his spot in Chicago's rotation, but he hasn't been an impactful arm in fantasy, as he has an unimpressive 6.9 K/9 and a mediocre 4.41 ERA through 51.0 innings.

  • White Sox's Chuckie Robinson: First start since 2022

    Robinson went 1-for-3 against the Royals on Saturday.

    Robinson was recalled to the majors Friday and made his first big-league appearance since 2022 on Saturday. He'll remain the backup to Korey Lee behind the plate but should have a chance to stick in the majors after Martin Maldonado was designated for assignment.

  • White Sox's Mike Clevinger: Next rehab start scheduled

    Clevinger (elbow) will make another rehab start with Triple-A Charlotte on Tuesday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Tuesday will mark Clevinger's fifth rehab start in Triple-A, and it will be his third start since neck stiffness forced him to pause his assignment in late June. Manager Pedro Grifol said the team still hasn't decided if the 33-year-old will require an additional rehab outing, though how Clevinger performs Tuesday will likely affect that decision. Across his four starts, Clevinger has surrendered 10 earned runs in 14.1 innings while striking out 13 batters and walking four.

  • White Sox's Sammy Peralta: Called up Saturday

    Peralta was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte on Saturday, LaMond Pope of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Peralta will return to the big leagues after being sent down to Charlotte on June 11, replacing Jordan Leasure (shoulder) in Chicago's bullpen after Leasure was placed on the 15-day injured list. Peralta has produced an impressive 1.08 ERA and 0.74 WHIP with 17 strikeouts over 16.2 innings in 14 appearances with Charlotte and he'll look to keep it up in the majors.

  • White Sox's Jordan Leasure: Placed on 15-day IL

    Leasure was placed on the 15-day injured list with a right shoulder impingement Saturday, retroactive to July 17, LaMond Pope of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Leasure last appeared in a game Sunday when he gave up four runs on four hits and a walk over one inning against the Pirates. He'll now be forced to miss at least 15 days. In a corresponding move, left-hander Sammy Peralta was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte.

  • White Sox's Nick Senzel: Sitting Saturday

    Senzel is not in the starting lineup against the Royals on Saturday.

    Senzel will head to the bench after he went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Friday's 7-1 loss. Paul DeJong will slide over to third base while Nicky Lopez enters the lineup at shortstop and bats seventh versus Kansas City.

  • White Sox's Korey Lee: Day off Saturday

    Lee is not in the starting lineup Saturday versus the Royals.

    Lee will take a seat after he went 1-for-7 with a solo home run while starting the team's last two games. Chuckie Robinson will draw the start behind the plate and bat ninth against Kansas City.

  • White Sox's Chris Flexen: Crushed by Royals

    Flexen (2-9) yielded seven runs on four hits and five walks over 4.2 innings Friday, striking out four and taking a loss against Kansas City.

    Flexen allowed two runs through four innings before the Royals broke out with a five-run fifth. It was the second time he gave up seven runs in a start this year, with the last one coming against the Yankees on May 19. His season ERA jumped from 4.82 to 5.22 with the ugly start and he's produced a lackluster 75:41 K:BB through 101.2 innings. Flexen is currently lined up to start in Texas next week.

  • White Sox's Nicky Lopez: On bench in Baldwin's debut

    Lopez is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Royals.

    The lefty-hitting Lopez will take a seat against Royals right-hander Michael Wacha in the White Sox's first game after the All-Star break. With the White Sox calling up prospect Brooks Baldwin from Triple-A Charlotte and installing him as the starter at second base Friday in his MLB debut, Lopez's time as a regular in the infield could be over. The veteran went hitless over his final three starts before the break, bringing his season-long slash line down to a dismal .240/.297/.287 over 285 plate appearances.

  • White Sox's Steven Wilson: Brought up to bigs

    The White Sox recalled Wilson from Triple-A Charlotte on Friday.

    Wilson will be back with the White Sox after being optioned July 8, supplying some bullpen depth with Michael Soroka (shoulder) moving to the injured list. Wilson owns a 3.46 ERA across 26.0 innings with the White Sox this season.

  • White Sox's Chuckie Robinson: Recalled from Triple-A

    The White Sox recalled Robinson from Triple-A Charlotte on Friday.

    The 29-year-old is taking over as the backup catcher behind Korey Lee after Martin Maldonado was designated for assignment. Robinson has a .407 OPS in 25 career games at the big-league level, but he has flashed a bit of power with 20 homers and a .275/.335/.428 slash line in 155 Triple-A games over the last two seasons.

  • White Sox's Michael Soroka: Out with shoulder strain

    The White Sox placed Soroka on the 15-day injured list Friday, retroactive to July 16, due to a right shoulder strain.

    The right-hander suffered the injury during the final game before the All-Star break Sunday. Soroka will be eligible for reinstatement July 31, though it's unclear how long he's expected to be sidelined.

  • White Sox's Brooks Baldwin: Starting at second base in debut

    The White Sox selected Baldwin's contract from Triple-A Charlotte on Friday.

    Baldwin is starting at second base and batting eighth Friday in Kansas City in what will be his major-league debut. The switch-hitting infielder earned a promotion after slashing .324/.391/.460 with eight home runs and 17 stolen bases between Double-A Birmingham and Charlotte this season. Baldwin should see regular playing time for the White Sox, perhaps in a super-utility role rather than as an everyday option at the keystone.
