      White Sox's Tyler Saladino: Gets the day off Sunday

      Saladino is out of the lineup Sunday against the Royals. After making back-to-back starts at shortstop, Saladino will take a seat in favor of Carlos Sanchez, who will be making his second start of the season at that position. Regular shortstop Jimmy Rollins will serve as the DH Sunday afternoon.

      White Sox's Tyler Saladino: Notches two-hit game in victory

      Saladino went 2-for-3 with a walk in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Royals. He continues to find a way to stay productive despite his hitting out of the ninth spot, as the 26-year-old is now slashing .407/.414/.444 over 27 at-bats in May. The stellar month has raised Saladino's average a whopping 129 points to .283, and his OBP and slugging percentage have also seen improvements north of 100 points. He's now hit safely in all seven of his starts during May, with four multi-hit games over that span.

      White Sox's Tyler Saladino: Contributes multi-hit effort, two RBI in Friday victory

      Saladino went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored in Friday's 10-4 victory over the Twins. The 26-year-old didn't let his ninth spot in the order keep him from recording his first multi-hit effort since April 7 versus the A's. Saladino had also gone 0-for-11 in the last four games in which he'd had an at-bat, a slump that had sunk his average to .154 coming in to Friday's action. He figures to only get sporadic playing time behind Jimmy Rollins, so Friday's effort, while a pleasant surprise, won't likely repeat itself too frequently for the career .222 hitter.

      White Sox's Tyler Saladino: Hitless in rare start Saturday

      Saladino went 0-for-3 with a strikeout against the Orioles on Saturday. Saladino made a rare start at short with Jimmy Rollins receiving the night off. In spring training, it looked like Saladino might earn a healthy share of playing time behind the elder Rollins. Instead, he has only made seven starts in the team's first 25 games. Saladino has yet to play a position other than short, but he should sub at a few other infield positions as the season wears on.

      White Sox's Tyler Saladino: Will start Thursday

      Saladino will start at shortstop Thursday against the Twins, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Saladino will get the nod Thursday with the veteran Jimmy Rollins presumably getting the day off. Saladino went 2-for-4 with a run and an RBI out of the nine hole in his lone other start this season.

      White Sox's Tyler Saladino: Will start season in a utility role

      Saladino will begin the season in a utility role, the Daily Herald reports. Saladino did all he could this spring to win the team's starting shortstop gig (four home runs), but the team ultimately decided to go with Jimmy Rollins' experience at the position. The decision also allows the club to use Saladino in an uber-utility role. Expect to see him play nearly every infield position at some point this season.

      White Sox's Tyler Saladino: Hits home run against Dodgers

      Saladino went 2-for-2 with a two-run home run Saturday against the Dodgers. The home run was his third of the spring, and he now has four extra-base hits in 18 Cactus League at-bats. Jimmy Rollins, Saladino's primary competition for the Opening Day shortstop gig, has two home runs on the spring. Chances remain that both men make the squad, with Saladino in more of a utility role.

      White Sox's Tyler Saladino: Should make roster with Rollins

      Manager Robin Ventura said both Saladino and Jimmy Rollins could make the White Sox's Opening Day roster, the Chicago Tribune reports. "I think both (Rollins and Saladino) have a complement to a certain lineup, and it depends on who you're facing and what makes sense to put those guys in there," Ventura said, adding that Rollins may not be able to go everyday entering his age-37 season. Even if Saladino does earn a timeshare with Rollins to start the season, he may also need to fend off the likely midseason promotion of Tim Anderson.

      White Sox's Tyler Saladino: Faces new competition from Jimmy Rollins

      The White Sox signed Jimmy Rollins to a minor league deal Monday, and he is expected to compete with Saladino for the team's starting shortstop job, the Chicago Tribune reports. The White Sox were rumored to go after a new shortstop option this offseason, and they waded into the elder end of the free agent pool as camp opened. Carlos Sanchez and Tim Anderson (to a lesser extent) are also in the shortstop picture. Saladino could take on an uber-utility role if he fails to win

      White Sox's Tyler Saladino: Will compete with Carlos Sanchez for starting SS job

      Saladino enters spring training in competition with Carlos Sanchez for the White Sox's starting shortstop job, the team's official site reports. Saladino primarily played third base for the 2015 White Sox, but Todd Frazier's arrival, and Alexei Ramirez's departure, opened up another spot in the infield. Saladino's shortstop play at Triple-A drew positive reviews, but questions remain about his bat. That same assessment can be said about Sanchez, and either could draw a utility role if they lose out on the starting gig.
