Mendick went 3-for-3 with three singles and a walk in Thursday's 6-0 win over the Royals. The 27-year-old is filling in nicely for Tim Anderson (hamstring) with four hits and two walks in two games this season. Mendick could earn more playing time even once Leury Garcia (leg) is healthy if he continues to supply offense from the bottom of the lineup.
Mendick started at shortstop and went 1-for-3 with a walk and an RBI in Wednesday's 8-4 loss to Seattle. Mendick was called up by the White Sox after the team placed Tim Anderson (hamstring) on the 10-day injured list. Leury Garcia is expected to get most of the starts in Anderson's place.
Mendick is starting Wednesday's game against Seattle. Mendick was recalled by the White Sox after Tim Anderson (hamstring) was placed on the injured list Wednesday. While Leury Garcia should see most of the at-bats at shortstop in Anderson's absence, Mendick will start at shortstop and bat ninth in the series finale against the Mariners.
Mendick was recalled by the White Sox on Wednesday. Mendick was sent to the White Sox's alternate training site to begin the year, but he'll be called up to serve as infield depth after Tim Anderson (hamstring) was placed on the injured list Wednesday. Leury Garcia should serve as the primary shortstop in Anderson's absence, but Mendick could see some playing time as a backup.
Mendick was optioned to the White Sox's alternate training site Tuesday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Mendick seemed to have a shot to break camp as a bench infielder, but the signing of Jake Lamb may have bumped him off the roster. He'll likely be one of the first names called up when the team needs an extra infielder, but the White Sox would have to suffer a few key injuries for him to see regular playing time.
