  • White Sox's Tim Anderson: Serving two-game ban

    Anderson had his three-game suspension reduced to two Sunday following a successful appeal, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. He'll begin serving the ban in Sunday's game in Texas.

    Anderson has now been suspended on three different occasions this season. He missed the first two games of the 2022 campaign stemming from an altercation with an umpire last September, and he drew a one-game in late April for an obscene gesture, but the ban was later lifted and a fine was imposed instead. Anderson was able to get his latest suspension reduced, but he'll still be forced to miss Sunday's series finale as well as the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader in Kansas City after making contact with an umpire in a July 30 game against the Athletics. The White Sox recalled Lenyn Sosa from Triple-A Charlotte earlier Sunday to provide depth in the middle infield while Anderson serves his two-game suspension.

  • White Sox's Tim Anderson: Appealing three-game suspension

    Anderson is appealing a three-game suspension for making contact with the home plate umpire during Friday's game against the Athletics, Jesse Rogers of reports.

    The 29-year-old was ejected from Friday's matchup after exchanging words with the home plate umpire, and his helmet made contact with the umpire's head. Anderson will be available while appealing his suspension, but it wouldn't be surprising to see him miss at least a few games in the near future since he was also suspended for a similar incident in 2021.

  • White Sox's Tim Anderson: Ejected, could face suspension

    Anderson went 1-for-3 with a double and a strikeout in a 7-3 loss to the Athletics on Friday. He was ejected from the game for arguing balls and strikes.

    With the White Sox trailing 5-3 in the seventh, Anderson took exception to a called first strike that caught the top inside corner of the zone. He stepped out of the batter's box and exchanged words with home plate umpire Nick Mahrley, who promptly threw Anderson out of the game. Anderson then encroached on Mahrley's personal space and the brim of Anderson's helmet made contact with Mahrley's head. Anderson had previously been suspended three games for making contact with an umpire in 2021, and he could be face another suspension for his actions in Friday night's game.

  • White Sox's Tim Anderson: On bench for matinee

    Anderson isn't starting the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Guardians, Vinnie Duber of reports.

    Anderson was replaced by a pinch hitter late in Friday's 8-2 loss to Cleveland, but his absence from the lineup for Saturday's matinee is simply to give him a chance to rest since he had a busy schedule during the All-Star break. Leury Garcia is taking over at shortstop and batting eighth.

  • White Sox's Tim Anderson: Swipes 12th bag

    Anderson went 2-for-4 with a run scored and a stolen base in Friday's 8-2 loss to the Guardians.

    The shortstop was the only White Sox batter to record multiple hits in a rough night at the office for the club. Anderson extended his hitting streak to seven games in the process, and on the season he's slashing .313/.353/.417 with six homers, 12 steals, 24 RBI and 45 runs through 66 contests.

  • White Sox's Tim Anderson: Smacks sixth homer

    Anderson went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and two runs scored Friday against the Twins.

    Anderson took Emilio Pagan yard in the fourth inning to record his sixth homer of the season. Entering the game, Anderson had failed to homer in 27 consecutive starts and has just a .109 ISO on the season. Despite the lack of power, Anderson has found other ways to be productive, particularly by hitting .313, scoring 42 runs and swiping 11 bags across 282 plate appearances for the campaign.

  • White Sox's Tim Anderson: Swipes 11th bag

    Anderson went 1-for-4 with a run scored and a stolen base Monday against the Guardians.

    Anderson extended his hitting streak to a modest four games with a single in the third inning. He then swiped second base -- his 11th of the season -- and came around to score on a three-run home run by Yoan Moncada. Anderson has hit only .237 across 18 games since returning from a groin injury June 20, though he still has 13 runs scored and three stolen bases in that span.

  • White Sox's Tim Anderson: Receives Sunday off

    Anderson is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Tigers.

    Anderson is off to a slow start in July with a .518 OPS through nine games, though he has perked up over the past few days by going 5-for-13 with a double, an RBI and three runs. Leury Garcia will shift to shortstop while Yoan Moncada takes over leadoff duties Sunday. The White Sox will close out the final week before the All-Star break with an eight-game slate, but fantasy managers shouldn't count on Anderson starting in more than seven of those contests. According to Scott Merkin of, manager Tony La Russa said Anderson isn't expected to play both ends of Tuesday's doubleheader in Cleveland, and if he does, the shortstop would be scheduled to sit out Wednesday's series finale.

  • White Sox's Tim Anderson: In mild slump

    Anderson went 1-for-4 with a run scored Thursday against the Tigers.

    Anderson started a ninth-inning rally for the White Sox with a one-out single before coming around to score. He's hit .205 with one extra-base hit across his last 10 games, though he's still scored seven runs and swiped two bags in that span. Even with the slow stretch, Anderson has maintained an excellent .313 average across 244 plate appearances on the season.

  • White Sox's Tim Anderson: Three hits in Tuesday's win

    Anderson went 3-for-6 with a run scored in Tuesday's 11-4 win over the Angels.

    Anderson did well in a table-setting role, but a hitless performance from Andrew Vaughn in the No. 2 spot limited the leadoff hitter's involvement in run production. This was Anderson's 10th three-hit game of the year. He's batting an excellent .344/.382/.467 with five home runs, 19 RBI, 29 runs scored, 10 stolen bases and nine doubles through 207 plate appearances. A career-best 11.6 percent strikeout rate has amplified his steady contact skills, while his counting stats are lagging due to a groin injury that cost him three weeks.

  • White Sox's Tim Anderson: Swipes two bags in loss

    Anderson went 1-for-3 with a walk, a run and two stolen bases in Monday's loss to the Angels.

    As usual, Anderson hit atop the lineup and served as an instigator for the White Sox offense. He singled to lead off the fourth and subsequently swiped second and third base, though he was left stranded without crossing the plate. The shortstop then scored Chicago's first run after walking in the sixth inning. Anderson has once again been one of the league's best hitters this season, slashing .339/.378/.466 with five homers, 28 runs, 19 RBI and 10 stolen bases over 201 plate appearances. He's on pace for his fourth straight season with a batting average over .300.

  • White Sox's Tim Anderson: Not in Saturday's lineup

    Anderson isn't starting Saturday against the Orioles.

    Anderson started in four of the last five games and went 5-for-19 with three runs, a walk and three strikeouts during that time. However, he'll get a breather Saturday while Leury Garcia shifts to shortstop with Lenyn Sosa starting at the keystone.

  • White Sox's Tim Anderson: Receives breather Wednesday

    Anderson is not in the starting lineup for Wednesday's contest versus the Blue Jays.

    Anderson will get a breather after he went 4-for-10 with three runs scored in his first two games back following a groin injury. Danny Mendick will take over at shortstop and bat leadoff Wednesday.

  • White Sox's Tim Anderson: Two hits in return

    Anderson went 2-for-5 with a run scored Monday against the Blue Jays.

    Anderson was activated from the injured list Monday and immediately returned to his customary role as the White Sox's leadoff hitter. He singled in his first plate appearance and also came around to score, showing little rust. Anderson has been excellent this season, maintaining a .357/.393/.500 line with five home runs and eight stolen bases across 41 games.

  • White Sox's Tim Anderson: Back in action

    Anderson (groin) was activated off the injured list Monday and will lead off and play shortstop against the Blue Jays.

    Anderson was given a three-week timetable when he hit the injured list with a strained right groin at the end of May, and he'll be back right on schedule after going 5-for-15 across four rehab games. He was having an excellent season prior to his injury, hitting .356/.393/.503 with five homers and eight steals in 40 games, so the White Sox will be counting on him to kickstart a stalled season. Yoan Moncada (hamstring) hit the injured list in a corresponding move.

  • White Sox's Tim Anderson: Set to return Monday

    Anderson (groin) is expected to return Monday against the Blue Jays, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    Anderson has already missed nearly three weeks with a strained right groin, but it looks as though he'll only miss two more days. That fits with reports from earlier this week, which indicated that he could return for the start of the team's upcoming homestand. He's already gone 4-for-11 through three rehab games and will presumably make only one or two more appearances before returning to the active roster.

  • White Sox's Tim Anderson: Should return next week

    Anderson (groin), who begins his rehab assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Charlotte, should rejoin the White Sox at some point during the upcoming homestand, which begins June 20, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    The 28-year-old will serve as the designated hitter during his first rehab game Tuesday before moving out to shortstop Wednesday. Manager Tony La Russa said he hoped Anderson would be sidelined only three weeks after Anderson went down with a strained groin at the end of April, and a return next week would be in line with that initial timeline. Danny Mendick has started the past 10 games at shortstop and should continue to see the bulk of the playing time there until Anderson rejoins the active roster.
