  • White Sox's Gavin Sheets: Power surge continues

    Sheets went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run Friday against the Yankees.

    Sheets took Gerrit Cole yard in the fourth inning to record his fourth home run of the season. He's homered in three of his last four games, also driving in seven. Andrew Vaughn (hand) returned from the injured list Friday, but so long as Sheets continues to hit, he should maintain regular playing time between the corner outfield spots. Overall, Sheets is hitting .232/.284/.415 with 10 RBI and seven runs scored across 88 plate appearances.

  • White Sox's Gavin Sheets: On bench Saturday

  • White Sox's Gavin Sheets: Goes yard again

    Sheets went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run Tuesday against the Guardians.

    Sheets took Cal Quantrill yard in the sixth inning to record his third home run of the season and second in as many games. His power surge is coming at the right time, as Andrew Vaughn (hand) began a rehab assignment Tuesday, which could result in some lost playing time for Sheets. However, he's made plenty of contact early -- he's striking out at a 21.2 percent rate -- so there is room for his .213/.263/.360 line to improve.

  • White Sox's Gavin Sheets: Tallies second homer

    Sheets went 1-for-2 with a three-run home run and a walk Monday against the Guardians.

    Sheets slugged his second home run of the season in the first inning. He has only four extra-base hits on the campaign, though he has made consistent contact and maintained a 21.1 percent strikeout rate. Despite a poor .211/.263/.324 line, Sheets should remain in line for regular playing time at least until Andrew Vaughn (hand) is able to return.

  • White Sox's Gavin Sheets: Reaches base three times

    Sheets went 2-for-4 with a double, a walk and a run scored Sunday against the Angels.

    Sheets has found himself in the lineup regularly against right-handed pitching since Eloy Jimenez (hamstring) has been sidelined. He's largely struggled with that opportunity, as he entered Sunday's game 1-for-10 with two strikeouts and two walks in his previous four games. However, Sheets had a productive game Sunday to tally his third multi-hit game of the season. Sheets is hitting just .235/.291/.333 across 55 plate appearances to begin the campaign, but he should continue to get an opportunity to serve as the team's primary designated hitter.

  • White Sox's Gavin Sheets: Sits against lefty

    Sheets is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Royals.

    Sheets is expected to benefit from more at-bats while Eloy Jimenez (hamstring) is sidelined for the next 6-to-8 weeks, but the lefty-hitting 26-year-old could still find himself on the bench regularly against southpaws. He'll take a seat with lefty Daniel Lynch toeing the rubber for Kansas City in the series opener.

  • White Sox's Gavin Sheets: In line for increased role

    Sheets went 1-for-3 with a walk Sunday against the Twins.

    Sheets started at first base and hit fifth Sunday, as Jose Abreu shifted to designated hitter. His performance wasn't particularly notable, though he should see sustained playing time either in left field or at designated hitter due to the absence of Eloy Jimenez (hamstring). As a result of a number of other injuries, Sheets was already playing regularly, and he has now collected at least one hit in four consecutive starts.

  • White Sox's Gavin Sheets: Homers, drive in two

    Sheets went 1-for-3 with a home run, hit-by-pitch and two RBI in a 9-3 loss Sunday against the Rays.

    Sheets drove in a run when he was hit by a pitch in the fourth and capped off the game with a solo homer in the ninth off right-handed reliever Tommy Romero. It was his first home run and RBI of the season. The 25-year-old has started in three of the last four games and has a hit in each appearance. Sheets has extreme platoon splits and will most likely receive starts only against right-handed pitchers.

  • White Sox's Gavin Sheets: Riding pine Saturday

    Sheets isn't in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Rays, Vinnie Duber of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

  • White Sox's Gavin Sheets: Sits against southpaw

    Sheets isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Mariners, Vinnie Duber of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

  • White Sox's Gavin Sheets: Filling in for Pollock

    Sheets will start in right field and bat sixth in Tuesday's game against the Mariners.

    Sheets started in only one of the White Sox's first three games during the club's season-opening series in Detroit, but he should face a clearer path to playing time in the outfield after AJ Pollock (hamstring) was moved to the injured list Tuesday. Manager Tony LaRussa could choose to take a platoon approach to right field, with the lefty-hitting Sheets occupying the larger side of the timeshare while the righty-hitting Adam Engel picks up starts against southpaws.

  • White Sox's Gavin Sheets: Back on bench Sunday

    Sheets is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Tigers, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

    Sheets will sit for the second time in the three-game series with Detroit bringing another lefty (Tarik Skubal) to the hill for Sunday's finale. The 25-year-old Sheets, who went 0-for-4 in his season debut in Saturday's 5-2 win, appears set to handle a part-time role against right-handed pitching, though he would see his playing-time outlook improve if AJ Pollock (hamstring) is forced to the injured list.

  • White Sox's Gavin Sheets: Lone bright spot in Game 4

    Sheets went 2-for-4 with a double and home run in Tuesday's 10-1 loss to the Astros in Game 4 of the ALDS.

    He got the start at DH with the White Sox's season on the line and accounted for all of the team's offense with his second-inning homer off Lance McCullers. Sheets went 4-for-12 in the series after an impressive .250/.324/.506 debut during the regular season (54 games). The roster is crowded, but Sheets would seems to have the inside track on a roster spot heading into spring training 2022.
