Shuck is out of the lineup Monday against the Yankees, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Shuck is still being viewed as the White Sox's primary option in center field until Austin Jackson (knee) returns from the DL, so he'll just be getting a rest for the Fourth of July. Despite holding decent job security, Shuck hasn't been able to produce much in the way of fantasy value; he's hit .258 to go with three homers, 10 RBI, 10 runs and one stolen base since May 30.
Manager Robin Ventura said he prefers an outfield alignment that utilizes Shuck in center field and Adam Eaton in right, the Chicago Tribune reports. The White Sox initially moved Eaton to center after Austin Jackson hit the disabled list in late-May and flanked him with Melky Cabrera and Avisail Garcia at the corners. However, the current alignment of Cabrera-Shuck-Eaton is an improvement defensively. The increase in playing time has been a relative wake-up call for Shuck's bat, as he is hitting .250 with five extra-base hits over his last 52 plate appearances.
Shuck is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Red Sox. Shuck had five straight starts before Monday's game, ceding his outfield spot to Jason Coats. He was being used as the primary replacement in center field while Austin Jackson (knee) is on the disabled list. Shuck has gone without a hit in his past two starts, he'll rest while the White Sox go with the outfield combination of Adam Eaton, Jason Coats, and Melky Cabrera.
Shuck will start in center field and bat ninth in the order Sunday against the Indians, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. It's the fifth straight start for Shuck, indicating manager Robin Ventura has settled on him as the primary replacement in center field while Austin Jackson (knee) is confined to the DL. Though Shuck's season-long numbers don't pop much, he's starting to settle into some semblance of a groove, having gone 6-for-22 with two RBI over his last six contests.
Shuck (shoulder) is in Tuesday's lineup against the Nationals, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Shuck was held out of the lineup Sunday after experiencing some shoulder soreness as a result of a collision with teammate Jason Coats, but Monday's scheduled off day appears to have been all he needed. The lefty will serve as the team's DH on Tuesday, batting seventh.
