  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Transferred to 60-day IL

    The White Sox transferred Mendick (knee) from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Wednesday.

    Mendick was already going to miss the remainder of the season with a torn ACL, so the move to the 60-day IL is merely procedural. The transaction opens up a spot on the 40-man roster for Eloy Jimenez (hamstring), who is starting in Wednesday's series finale with the Twins after being activated from the 60-day IL.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Diagnosed with torn ACL

    Mendick was placed on the 10-day injured list with a torn right ACL on Thursday.

    Mendick sustained a knee injury in a collision during Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays, and he'll be forced to miss the remainder of the season after an MRI revealed a torn ACL. The 28-year-old will presumably undergo surgery and get moved to the 60-day IL at some point, while Lenyn Sosa's contract was selected from Double-A Birmingham to provide depth in the infield. It's not yet clear whether Mendick will be ready for the start of the 2023 regular season. He'll wrap up his fourth year in the majors with a .289/.343/.443 slash line to go with three home runs, 22 runs, 15 RBI and a stolen base across 106 plate appearances.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Slated for MRI

    Manager Tony La Russa said Wednesday that Mendick (knee) will receive an MRI, Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Mendick exited Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays due to right knee discomfort, an injury that he sustained during a collision in the top of the second inning. The White Sox will likely have a better idea of the 28-year-old's status once the results of his MRI are known.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Dealing with right knee discomfort

    Mendick is dealing with right knee discomfort after leaving Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays.

    Mendick is being further evaluated following his collision in the top of the second inning, but he's dealing with a knee issue. A better idea of his status ahead of Thursday's series opener against the Orioles should be revealed once he undergoes further testing.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Exits following collision

    Mendick was removed from Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays in the top of the second inning due to an apparent right leg injury, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

    The 28-year-old collided with Adam Haseley while chasing down a foul ball and was unable to put any weight on his right leg as he was helped off the field. Mendick had crossed the plate in each of the 10 games leading up to Wednesday's matchup, and he slashed .275/.356/.500 with two homers, a triple, a double, 12 runs, eight RBI and a stolen base during that time. It's not yet clear whether he'll be available for Thursday's series opener against Baltimore.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Notches first career steal

    Mendick went 1-for-4 with a stolen base in Tuesday's win over the Tigers.

    The successful theft of third base against the battery of Will Vest and Tucker Barnhart was Mendick's first stolen base in the big leagues (145th game). Mendick has been a bright spot for the White Sox this month, hitting safely in 10 of 12 games, but his playing time could soon take a hit with Tim Anderson (groin) expected back next week.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Slugs second homer

    Mendick went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run Friday against the Rangers.

    Mendick took John King yard in the eighth inning to cap a five-run rally. He's stepped into the primary role at shortstop with Tim Anderson (groin) sidelined, and Mendick has collected eight hits in his last 10 contests while hitting .324 with six RBI and seven runs scored. Overall, he's hitting .283/.317/.433 across 64 plate appearances.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Leading off Tuesday

    Mendick will start at shortstop and bat leadoff in Tuesday's game against the Dodgers, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

    Mendick will get a second consecutive look out of the leadoff spot while he starts at shortstop for the sixth time in the last seven games. He's gotten on bace at an excellent .444 clip since taking hold of a regular role May 31, so Mendick looks poised to hold down everyday at-bats until the White Sox get Tim Anderson (groin) back from the injured list.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Retreats to bench

    Mendick is out of the lineup for Thursday's game in Toronto, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Mendick filled in at shortstop for the first two games of the series following Tim Anderson's (groin) placement on the injured list and produced four hits and two RBI over seven at-bats, but he'll head to the bench in favor of Leury Garcia in the series finale. Garcia had been tending to a bruised side before returning to the lineup Wednesday as Chicago's second baseman in place of a resting Josh Harrison, but Garcia and Mendick are likely to split work at shortstop while Anderson is on the mend.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Drives in pair

    Mendick went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a run scored Tuesday against the Blue Jays.

    Mendick delivered an RBI double and came around to score in the fifth inning. In two games since being recalled from Triple-A Charlotte, he has delivered four hits, two RBI and three runs scored across eight at-bats. With Tim Anderson (groin) on the injured list and Leury Garcia (side) day-to-day, Mendick should continue to get run at shortstop in the short term.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Could have increased role

    Mendick went 2-for-4 with two runs scored Sunday against the Cubs.

    Mendick entered the game at shortstop and served as the White Sox's leadoff hitter once Tim Anderson (groin) was forced from the game. While Anderson is expected to hit the injured list, Leury Garcia (side) is day-to-day. If both Anderson and Garcia remain out, Mendick is likely to serve as the team's primary shortstop.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Back with big-league squad

    Mendick was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte on Saturday.

    Mendick owns a career .237/.297/.348 slash line in 366 major-league plate appearances, 26 of which have come this season. He'll give the White Sox an additional option in the infield for now, though considering that it was Dallas Keuchel who was designated for assignment in a corresponding move, it's possible Mendick returns to the minors in a few days when the White Sox add another pitcher.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Optioned to Triple-A

    Mendick was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte on Monday.

    Mendick should continue to receive bench opportunities whenever the White Sox need another infielder, but his career .237/.297/.348 slash line in 131 games at the highest level means he's unlikely to stick around for long or play a regular role. He'll vacate the roster here so the White Sox can add Johnny Cueto ahead of his season debut.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Draws start at second base

    Mendick is starting at second base and batting seventh in Wednesday's series finale versus the Guardians, Vinnie Duber of AllCHGO.com reports.

    Mendick will replace Leury Garcia in the lineup, who was a late scratch. The 28-year-old was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte on May 5, going 0-for-3 with two strikeouts since his return to the big leagues.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Recalled by White Sox

    Mendick was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte on Thursday.

    The 28-year-old was sent down Monday, but he'll rejoin the major-league club to provide depth after Andrew Vaughn (hand) was placed on the 10-day injured list. Mendick is hitting .250 with a homer, two doubles, four runs and three RBI in the majors this year.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Sent to minors

    The White Sox optioned Mendick to Triple-A Charlotte on Monday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    Mendick and reliever Anderson Severino were the casualties as the White Sox needed to reduce their active roster from 28 to 26 men prior to Monday's deadline. The 28-year-old utility man started three straight games from April 24 through 27, but he went unused off the bench in each of Chicago's four games that followed.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Back on bench

    Mendick is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Royals.

    Mendick picked up starts in the last three games and went 3-for-10 with a solo home run and two additional runs during that stretch, but he's expected to see limited use as a utility man moving forward. Josh Harrison recently overcame a shoulder injury and Yoan Moncada (oblique) is set to begin a minor-league rehab assignment Saturday, with the latter's eventual return from the 10-day injured list bringing the White Sox back to full strength in the infield.
