Marcus Semien goes yard to give White Sox win
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

White Sox infielder Marcus Semien played the role of offensive hero Thursday against Oakland in a game with virtually no offense.

Semien blasted off to left in the sixth inning to provide the lone run in the game and give teammate Chris Sale the victory. He has hit safely in five of his last six games.

White Sox add seven to active roster
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The White Sox purchased the contract of outfielder Michael Taylor from Triple-A Charlotte Tuesday, one of seven roster moves made as part of September roster expansion.

The team also announced the recall of pitchers Chris Bassitt, Scott Carroll and Eric Surkam, outfielder Jordan Danks, catcher Josh Phegley and infielder Marcus Semien

Marcus Semien could soon factor in Fantasy
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

By trading Gordon Beckham to the Angels Thursday, the White Sox created a big hole up the middle that, for now at least, they'll attempt to fill with some combination of Carlos Sanchez and Leury Garcia. But neither figures to make as much of an impact long-term as Marcus Semien, who Fantasy owners may remember for the splash he made back in April and May filling in for an injured Beckham and then an injured Conor Gillaspie.

His final numbers didn't look so hot, but he showed his potential with a couple nice weeks. When the White Sox finally shipped him to Triple-A Charlotte, he slumped so badly that he fell off the radar for a while, but he's rebounded in July and August, batting .288 (51 for 177) with six homers and 14 doubles. Most encouraging is his exceptional on-base percentage during that time thanks to a 35-to-30 strikeout to walk ratio. His plate discipline put him on the map as a prospect last year but hasn't been as evident during his time in the big leagues so far.

So why isn't he up yet? Good question, but MLB.com has reported he will be when rosters expand in September. My guess is he gets most of the at-bats then, and with an Ian Kinsler-like combination of power and speed, I could see him making an impact in Fantasy.

Marcus Semien continues to work in outfield at Triple-A
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

White Sox infielder Marcus Semien continues to get work in the outfield following his demotion to Triple-A Charlotte in early June, per MLB.com.

"He's going to really dictate how comfortable he is and how we see how comfortable he becomes," White Sox assistant general manager Buddy Bell said of Semien. "He's going to be fine. If you bring him up now, we could put him out there. I don't think you want to put him out there every day by any means, but I think he's capable of making all the plays. He's capable of keeping the ball in front of him.

"Whether that means he's got to play a little deeper than most -- but I think he's more than capable. Part of the problem is he's dealing with the fence, balls over his head and things like that that he never had to deal with before."

Marcus Semien optioned to Triple-A
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

White Sox infielder Marcus Semien has been optioned to Triple-A Sunday.

Semien had his moments with the club, but was hitting just .222 over 162 at-bats. With Gordon Beckham performing well since his return, Semien was no longer needed on the major-league roster.
