News
White Sox pitcher Matt Lindstrom completed another bullpen session Tuesday, the team announced.

Lindstrom is on track to move forward to throwing live batting practice while the team is in Minnesota this weekend. If all goes well, he could end up beginning a rehab assignment at some point next week. He has been sidelined since May 19 while recovering from ankle surgery.

White Sox outfielder Adam Eaton is hitting .429 over a seven-game hitting streak after going 2 for 3 with two walks and a run scored Sunday. He also stole his ninth base.

Eaton did not play the final two games before the All-Star break as he rested a sore ankle and wrist. The time off appears to have been beneficial.

News
White Sox pitcher John Danks has six teams on his no-trade list, and four of those teams were revealed by MLB.com Tuesday: the Athletics, Orioles, Nationals and Blue Jays.

The A's and Nationals appear set in the rotation. The most likely of the four to be shopping for starting pitching depth is the Orioles. Danks is 8-6 with a 4.35 ERA and 87:46 K:BB ratio in 124 innings.

News
White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu is getting the day off Tuesday against the Royals, due to minor soreness in his back, manager Robin Ventura told reporters.

Abreu is available to pinch-hit off the bench Tuesday, and is expected back in the lineup in time for Wednesday's game. This is the first game Abreu has missed since he returned from the disabled list in early June.

News
White Sox pitcher Hector Noesi picked up a win Saturday, giving up three earned runs on six hits and one walk in six innings while striking out two in his team's 4-3 victory over the Astros.

Noesi (4-7) was given a 3-0 lead after three innings, but the Astros were able to tie the game with a solo home run in the fourth and a two-run double in the fifth. The White Sox managed to take the lead for good in the bottom of the fifth inning. Noesi owns a 5.21 ERA and 72:37 K:BB ratio in 93 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Twins Thursday.

News
White Sox outfielder Dayan Viciedo sparked a late rally Friday, in a 3-2 win over the Astros.

Viciedo got the White Sox on the board for the first time in the sixth inning, as he clubbed a two-run home run to center field. He finished the game 1 for 3 with a walk in the win.

Viciedo has 12 home runs in 93 games, putting him just shy of his total of 14 in 124 games a year ago. He is hitting .242/.295/.414 in 343 at-bats.  

Jake Petricka, #52
Year-to-date Stats

News
You may recall White Sox manager Robin Ventura had this to say after Zach Putnam bailed out Jake Petricka with two outs in the ninth inning Saturday for his second save in as many days:

"Unfortunately, I don't have a guy that you're just going to leave out there, saying that's your closer," Ventura said.

But the second half of that quote may actually say more:

"I like Put's swing-and-miss ability with some lefties, and that's the reason."

"Put," of course, is Putnam, who struck out left-handed hitter Jason Castro with two runners on to secure the save Saturday. But looking back on it, the most interesting part of Putnam bailing out Petricka is that it happened immediately after the second out, not after the second runner reached base. If a right-handed hitter was due up instead of Castro, Ventura may have just let Petricka finish out the inning.

Which explains why Ventura went back to Petricka in the ninth inning Monday. Two right-handed hitters were due up.

After weeks of trying to discern what's happening at the back end of the White Sox bullpen, we may finally have an answer: It's a lefty-righty platoon. Considering they're not so great individually anyway, perhaps you should leave both Putnam and Petricka for the deepest of Rotisserie leagues.

News
White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers is not in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Royals, though it isn't because he is hurt.

Flowers' wife gave birth Monday, according to ESPN.com, so he was spending the day with her. He is expected to be at the ballpark in time for the game, and will likely be available off the bench.  

Zach Putnam, #57

News
White Sox reliever Zach Putnam recorded two saves this weekend, but only the first was conventional. He struck out two in a perfect ninth inning against the Astros Friday. 

Manager Robin Ventura handed the ball to Jake Petricka in the ninth inning of a one-run game Saturday, but after he put two on, Ventura turned to Putnam, who struck out Jason Castro to end the game.

Ventura wouldn't commit to a single closer after the game, but Saturday wasn't the first time Petricka faltered in a high-leverage situation this month. His poor outing July 9 contributed to a come-from-behind win for the Red Sox. Ventura did say he prefers Putnam against left-handed batters, which would support a platoon, but I get the sense Putnam is beginning to distinguish himself.

As I wrote in my latest post to the Fantasy Baseball Today blog breaking down the more questionable closer situations in baseball, he's the reliever to own for the White Sox right now.

News
White Sox pitcher Scott Carroll is expected to start Tuesday against the Royals, as the hamstring and back issues that forced him out of his last start are no longer an issue. 

Carroll has a 4.19 ERA in 68 2/3 innings this season, and has allowed no runs in 11 2/3 innings over his last two starts.

News
White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia has yet to be scheduled for a rehab assignment, though that would be the next step in his recovery from a torn labrum and avulsion fracture, MLB.com reports.

"When you see him do things, you get excited about it," manager Robin Ventura said. "But you don't want to push it to a point where he's getting out ahead of himself, and I know it looks like he's doing pretty good."

Garcia was ruled out for the remainder of the season after undergoing surgery in April, and the team hasn't changed that timetable. However, the outfielder does look like he'll be able to take part in a rehab assignment at some point before the end of the season.

News
White Sox pitcher Chris Sale kept rolling Monday, giving up just one earned run on seven hits and one walk in seven innings while striking out eight in his team's 3-1 victory over the Royals.

Sale (9-1) has rattled off seven straight quality starts, giving up just one earned run in each of his three July starts while striking out 26 batters and walking just one. He owns a 2.03 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 110:17 K:BB ratio in 102 innings. Sale will look to keep cruising Saturday against the Twins.

White Sox reliever Daniel Webb was hit hard and took the loss Sunday afternoon at home against the Astros, dropping to 5-3 on the year.

Unable to maintain a 7-7 tie, Webb permitted a run-scoring double to Matt Dominguez, a two-run double to L.J. Hoes and a run-scoring single to Marwin Gonzalez in the seventh inning. He was charged with four runs on four hits and one walk while striking out one in 1 1/3 innings of relief. He owns a 3.74 ERA and a 1.48 WHIP over 43 1/3 innings of relief.
