    • Saladino (wrist) is starting at shortstop and batting eighth Wednesday against the Indians. Saladino was thrust into the starting lineup after Tim Anderson was scratched for an undisclosed reason. This will be his first start since he was scratched over the weekend with a wrist issue. Saladino would likely fill in for Anderson if the latter is forced to miss any time, otherwise he'll return to his role as a utility infielder.

    • The White Sox scratched Saladino from their lineup for Sunday's game against the Rays with a sore left wrist. The team has been hit hard by the injury bug lately, but with Saladino labeled as day-to-day, it doesn't appear that he'll be looking at a lengthy absence. Still, Saladino's injury leaves the White Sox with limited options available off the bench, as Jose Abreu, who was expected to get the day off while recovering from an elbow issue, will now enter the lineup at designated hitter.

    • Saladino will serve as the White Sox's designated hitter and bat second Sunday against the Tigers. The White Sox recently lost Nicky Delmonico (wrist) and Yoan Moncada (shin) to the disabled list, and those absences seem to have opened up regular roles for both Saladino and Yolmer Sanchez, who had previously been competing for reps at third base. Saladino will earn his third start in a row Sunday but will need to show improved production before generating interest outside of AL-only formats. He's batting just .180 over 61 at-bats in August.

    • White Sox's Tyler Saladino: Not starting Wednesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Saladino is not in the starting lineup Wednesday against the Astros. Saladino has started the past nine games for the White Sox, but gets a day off after going just 1-for-5 in Tuesday's win. Nicky Delmonico will start as the designated hitter and Yolmer Sanchez takes over at the hot corner in his stead. Saladino appears to be receiving plenty of playing time in a crowded infield, but may need to improve offensively if he wants to earn an everyday role.

    • Saladino was a late addition to the White Sox's lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox. He'll bat fifth and man the designated hitter spot. Saladino had been set to head back to the bench Sunday with Matt Davidson (wrist) expected to return from a four-game absence, but the White Sox's team trainers apparently decided shortly before the contest that Davidson wouldn't be ready to go. It's not expected that Davidson has suffered a major setback, so there's a good chance that after a team off day Monday, he'll be in the starting nine Tuesday against the Astros, leaving Saladino to fight Yolmer Sanchez for one available regular lineup spot.
