  • White Sox's Adam Engel: Back on bench for Game 1

    Engel is out of the lineup for the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Royals.

    Engel will retreat to the bench for the first game of the twin bill after he started in right field in five of the previous six contests. With Andrew Vaughn (hand) recently returning from the 10-day injured list, Engel is expected to move into more of a fourth-outfielder role, but he should still pick up regular starts against left-handed pitching at the expense of the lefty-hitting Gavin Sheets.

  • White Sox's Adam Engel: Swipes fifth bag

    Engel went 1-for-4 with a stolen base Monday against the Royals.

    Engel was in the lineup for the fifth time in the last six games, and he's picked up three starts against righties and two against southpaws. He's collected five hits across 20 at-bats in that span, but most intriguingly tallied two stolen bases. Engel is still likely to settle into a fourth outfielder role for the White Sox, though the team has opted to rotate its lineup enough for him to pick up playing time in the short term.

  • White Sox's Adam Engel: Tallies first homer

    Engel went 1-for-3 with a solo home run Sunday against the Yankees.

    Engel took Nestor Cortes yard in the eighth inning to record his first home run of the season. He's started four of the team's last five games despite Andrew Vaughn's return, instead taking time from Gavin Sheets. The pair will battle for playing time at a combination of a corner outfield spot and designated hitter so long as Eloy Jimenez (hamstring) is sidelined. While Engel won't provide much in terms of power, he has stolen four bases across only 73 plate appearances this season.

  • White Sox's Adam Engel: Swipes fourth bag

    Engel went 1-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Yankees.

    Engel has only one multi-hit game this season, but he has collected a base knock in eight of his past 10 contests. The outfielder has also racked up four thefts on the season without being caught. Engel's career high for swipes in a campaign is 16, which he recorded in 2018.

  • White Sox's Adam Engel: Sits again Monday

    Engel is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Guardians, Vinnie Duber of AllCHGO.com reports.

    Engel is on the bench for the third time in four games and doesn't look like he'll play regularly against right-handed pitching, even with Chicago without two of its everyday outfielders in Eloy Jimenez (hamstring) and Andrew Vaughn (hand). As a result of the absences of Jimenez and Vaughn, the White Sox have been deploying top catcher Yasmani Grandal more frequently at designated hitter of late, which has resulted in Gavin Sheets poaching more starts from Engel in the corner outfield.

  • White Sox's Adam Engel: Sitting in series finale

    Engel is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox.

    Thanks to injuries to Eloy Jimenez (hamstring) and Andrew Vaughn (hand), Engel has enjoyed a near-everyday role in the outfield to begin May. Though he's on the bench for the series finale in Boston, Engel has still been able to pick up four starts in Chicago's last six contests.

  • White Sox's Adam Engel: Nabs third bag

    Engel went 1-for-2 with a run scored and a stolen base Friday against the Red Sox.

    Engel had started Chicago's last three games, though he was out of the lineup Friday and entered as a pinch-hitter in the sixth inning. He didn't collect a hit in his initial plate appearance, but singled to lead off the eighth frame, stole second base and then scored. Engel has swiped three bags without being caught early this season. Though he's hitting only .224 with very little power, Engel has collected five hits across his last 17 at-bats.

  • White Sox's Adam Engel: Gets third straight start

    Engel will start in right field and bat second in Wednesday's game against the Cubs.

    Engel has been the main beneficiary of Andrew Vaughn's (hand) lingering absence, as the 30-year-old will stick in the lineup for a third consecutive contest. In his previous two starts, Engel went 2-for-7 with a pair of doubles, an RBI and a run.

  • White Sox's Adam Engel: Swipes two bags

    Engel went 1-for-2 with two stolen bases, a walk and a run scored in a 9-3 loss Sunday against Tampa Bay.

    Engel walked in the third and singled and scored in the fifth, stealing second each time he reached base. He batted ninth and played right field. The 30-year-old has four starts this year, evenly split between left-handed and right-handed starters.

  • White Sox's Adam Engel: Draws start versus lefty

    Engel will start in right field and bat seventh in Wednesday's game against the Mariners, Vinnie Duber of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    The White Sox are including Engel in the lineup for the second time in five games this season. Both of Engel's starts have come against left-handed pitching, and he looks as though he'll continue to fill the short side of a platoon in the corner outfield with Gavin Sheets while AJ Pollock (hamstring) is on the shelf.

  • White Sox's Adam Engel: Starting Thursday

    Engel (shoulder) will start in right field and bat eighth in Thursday's Cactus League game against the Giants, LaMond Pope of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Engel underwent a shoulder cleanup procedure in early November, but he'll be able to make his Cactus League debut against San Francisco on Thursday. After the 30-year-old avoided arbitration with the White Sox by agreeing to a one-year, $2 million contract Tuesday, he looks set to fill at least a part-time role for the team in 2022. At this point, Eloy Jimenez, Luis Robert and Andrew Vaughn look to have locks on everyday roles in two of the everyday spots in the outfield and designated hitter, leaving the likes of Engel, Leury Garcia and Gavin Sheets to jockey for playing time at the other outfield spot.

  • White Sox's Adam Engel: Settles with ChiSox

    Engel (shoulder) agreed to a one-year, $2 million contract with the White Sox on Tuesday to avoid arbitration, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    Engel has yet to make his Cactus League while he builds back up from the cleanup procedure for his left shoulder that he required early in the offseason, but that won't deter the White Sox from keeping him in the fold for 2022. When healthy, Engel likely profiles as Chicago's fourth outfielder thanks to the solid defense he offers at all three spots, though he's shown some unexpected growth as a hitter over the past two seasons. Across 233 plate appearances since the start of the 2020 campaign, Engel has slashed .270/.335/.488 with 10 home runs and an 8-for-9 success rate on stolen-base attempts.

  • White Sox's Adam Engel: Gets shoulder cleanup

    Engel had his left shoulder cleaned up after the season ended but is expected to be ready for the start of next season, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

    Engel missed over a month in the second half with a shoulder injury and evidently wasn't fully healthy even after he returned. He should fill a part-time role again next year if he recovers as anticipated, as he's hit .270/.335/.488 in 75 games across the last two seasons.

  • White Sox's Adam Engel: Hitless in return

    Engel started in right field and went 0-for-3 in Wednesday's 6-1 win over the Reds.

    Engel returned to the lineup after nursing a sore leg since last Friday. Injuries have limited Engel to 37 games, though he's been productive when healthy. with an .827 OPS.

  • White Sox's Adam Engel: Returns to lineup

    Engel (leg) is starting Wednesday's game against the Reds.

  • White Sox's Adam Engel: Takes batting practice

    Engel (leg) took batting practice Sunday but is not yet ready to return to action.

    Engel needs at least three days from the time he took batting practice before he's ready for action in the field -- that makes Wednesday's series finale against the Reds the earliest he could return. "He is doing a lot of things well," White Sox manager Tony La Russa said. "It's the running part that we have to really track." Andrew Vaughn and Leury Garcia have started in right field while Engel has been sidelined.

  • White Sox's Adam Engel: Available off bench

    Engel (leg) is available off the bench for Tuesday's game against the Reds, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    Engel hasn't appeared in any of the last four games due to discomfort in his leg, but he took batting practice Sunday. Manager Tony La Russa said Tuesday that the 29-year-old is "ready to go" and will be in the lineup for Wednesday's series finale against Cincinnati.

  • White Sox's Adam Engel: Dealing with discomfort

    Engel won't play Friday in Cleveland due to discomfort in his leg, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Engel had only just returned from a shoulder injury Tuesday and it didn't take long before another issue popped up. The leg discomfort, which affected him while he ran the bases, doesn't appear to be related to the shoulder problem but could be related to the hamstring troubles which sent him to the injured list twice earlier in the season. Andrew Vaughn will start in right field.

  • White Sox's Adam Engel: Off injured list, starts in RF

    Engel started in right field and went 1-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to Detroit.

    Engel was reinstated from the injured list Tuesday and could be in line for consistent at-bats as the primary right fielder, although the White Sox have several others capable of playing the position. Engel is deemed the best defender of the bunch and needs the work after getting just 125 plate appearances this season due to injuries.

  • White Sox's Adam Engel: Returns from injured list

    Engel (shoulder) was activated off the injured list as expected Tuesday.

    Engel has been out since mid-August but is ready to go after an eight-game rehab assignment. He'll head straight into the starting lineup, batting eighth and playing right field.
