      White Sox's Jerry Sands: Homers in first 2016 start

      Sands went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer and three strikeouts in Wednesday's win over Minnesota. Getting his first start of the year, Sands teased his enticing power potential with a bomb to deep center, but displayed his painful lack of contact skills in every other at-bat. While Sands can slot in at a few different positions -- first base, left field, right field, DH -- those spots are pretty well accounted for on the South Side. That leaves the 28-year-old slugger with only the occasional fill-in start.

      White Sox's Jerry Sands: Starting at designated hitter Wednesday

      Sands will bat seventh as the designated hitter on Wednesday against the Twins, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports. Sands has only gotten one at-bat this season in his first year with the White Sox. The 28-year-old hit for a .236/.286/.390 slash line in 50 games with the Indians last year, but is unlikely to see too much playing time this season. He replaces Avisail Garcia in the lineup.

      White Sox's Jerry Sands: Makes Whitesox Opening Day Roster

      Sands has made the White Sox Opening Day roster, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports. Sands has batted .188 (9-for-48) this spring along with three homers, nine runs, and nine RBI. Last year with Cleveland, he played 50 games and compiled a .236 average with 11 runs and 19 RBI over 123 at-bats. Given his experience at first base and in the outfield, he could play multiple roles for the White Sox this year, possibly filling in for Jose Abreu when he needs an off day or replacing Austin Jackson or Adam Eaton late in games.

      White Sox's Jerry Sands: Could make MLB roster

      Sands in the mix for the White Sox's final roster spot, the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Sands has shown his characteristic power this spring (his first in the White Sox organization), but he has also shown his characteristic strikeout tendencies. Still, the White Sox are in need of some bench power, and he could fit the bill.

      White Sox's Jerry Sands: Hits two home runs in win Sunday

      Sands hit two home runs in the White Sox's win over the A's on Sunday. The home runs were Sands' second and third in 32 at-bats this spring, but he has gotten on base at a below-average rate (.265 OBP) in his first White Sox camp. Sands entered camp with little chance of making the big league club, but he may now be on the bubble of an Adam LaRoche-less roster.

      White Sox's Jerry Sands: Claimed by White Sox

      Sands was claimed off waivers by the White Sox on Wednesday, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports. Sands landed on waivers after being DFA'd by the Indians late last week. He'll join the White Sox after compiling a .236/.286/.676 slash line in 2015. Sands also brings some versatility with his glove, having played three positions last season with the Tribe.

      Indians' Jerry Sands: Designated for Assignment

      Sands was designated for assignment on Friday, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Sands added some versatility to the Indians in 2015 with his ability to play the infield and outfield, but the Tribe's recent additions such as Mike Napoli and Rajai Davis made him expendable. He was designated for assignment to clear a roster spot for Dan Otero, who was acquired for cash considerations Friday.

      Indians hold Lonnie Chisenhall out of Saturday lineup vs. Red Sox

      Indians right fielder Lonnie Chisenhall is not in the lineup against the Red Sox on Saturday. Chisenhall had been dealing with a sore hamstring earlier in the week, so it's no surprise to see him out of the lineup Saturday. With the 26-year-old out, Jerry Sands will get the start in right field and hit ninth in the order.

      Indians OF Jerry Sands gets two hits, HR in win Friday

      Indians outfielder Jerry Sands was 2 for 4 with a home run and two RBI in Cleveland's win over Boston on Friday night. He was once considered a decent power prospect, but his days as a prospect are in the rearview mirror. Sands has four home runs to go with a pedestrian .233 average and his ability to play first base and either corner outfield spot provides some value as a utility man for the Indians, but he typically doesn't get enough playing time to have an impact in any but AL-only fantasy leagues.

      Hamstring issue has Indians OF Lonnie Chisenhall out of opener

      Indians right fielder Lonnie Chisenhall (hamstring) will not start the opener of the Wednesday doubleheader against visiting Minnesota. Chisenhall was a late scratch Monday after returning from the hamstring issue Sunday, and even the day off Tuesday wasn't enough for him to rejoin the lineup. Jerry Sands will replace him in right field, batting seventh for Cleveland.
