White Sox's Adam Engel: Adds insurance with solo shot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Engel went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's 2-0 win over Cleveland.

Engel's eighth-inning blast doubled the lead in the low-scoring contest. The outfielder is up to two homers, four RBI and six runs scored in 10 games this year. With Nomar Mazara (foot) expected to return Saturday, Engel will likely retreat to a bench role going forward.

White Sox's Adam Engel: Retreats to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

After making three straight starts, Engel will cede right field to Nicky Delmonico as the White Sox wrap up their series with the Royals. Both Engel and Delmonico could be destined for full-time bench roles as soon as the Sox's next series against the Brewers, as Nomar Mazara (illness) could be activated from the 10-day injured list within the next few days.

White Sox's Adam Engel: Powers offense in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Engel went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Friday's 3-2 win over the Royals.

Getting the start in right field and batting eighth, Engel took rookie Kris Bubic deep in the second inning for his first homer of the year, and that was all the run support Dallas Keuchel and the White Sox bullpen needed. The 28-year-old has started four of the last five games, but with Nomar Mazara (illness) close to coming off the injured list and Nick Madrigal's promotion pushing Leury Garcia off second base, Engel may have to settle for a short-side platoon role at best once the team's outfield is at full strength.

White Sox's Adam Engel: Enters as fill-in Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Engel (undisclosed) entered as a replacement and went 3-for-4 with two doubles and a run scored in Sunday's 14-2 loss to the Twins.

Engel was originally part of the starting lineup but was removed for undisclosed reasons. He was needed after Eloy Jimenez left the game with light-headeness, which suggests the reason behind Engel's removal was not serious.

White Sox's Adam Engel: Pulled from starting lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Engel was removed from Sunday's lineup against the Twins for undisclosed reasons.

Thge 28-year-old was originally set to start in right field and bat ninth, but the White Sox released a revised lineup with Nicky Delmonico in right field. The team didn't announce an injury, so it's unclear if Engel is available off the bench.

White Sox's Adam Engel: May be in right field Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

With the White Sox placing Nomar Mazara (illness) on the 10-day injured list, Engel is in position to start Friday's opener against the Twins in right field.

Engel has been the primary fill-in for Mazara, who has not been available for the last four days because he's "under the weather," per manager Rick Renteria. Leury Garcia also filled in for Mazara, but he's the presumptive starter at second base. If Mazara's illness is related to COVID-19, he could resume play at any time after clearing protocols, but he's considerably short on time with respect to being available for Opening Day.

White Sox's Adam Engel: Replaces Mazara
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Engel started in right field in Sunday's exhibition game against the Cubs, replacing Nomar Mazara (illness), Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

Mazara reported feeling under the weather, so manager Rick Renteria went with Engel, who is expected to be the White Sox's fourth outfielder in 2020. He could turn into the right-handed-hitting platoon partner with Mazara, who has well documented issues against left-handers. Engel homered in the game.

White Sox's Adam Engel: Could platoon in right field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Engel could serve as a platoon partner in right field if Nomar Mazara struggles against left-handed pitching, Vinnie Duber of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

The White Sox plan to let Mazara start the season as the everyday right fielder, but they are cognizant of his career .633 OPS against southpaws. If Mazara's issues against left-handers persist in 2020, manager Rick Renteria could turn to Engel, the 28-year-old defensive wiz who posted an .841 OPS against lefties in 2019. He hit well during spring training, going 10-for-33 with two home runs, two doubles, 11 RBI and eight runs scored over 35 plate appearances. Engel has never hit enough during the stretches when the White Sox needed him daily, but there's potential for a part-time opportunity in 2020.

White Sox's Adam Engel: Launches long ball
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Engel started in right field and went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run in Wednesday's spring game against the Royals.

Engel finished out 2019 as a regular in the lineup, muscling up to .263/.317/.461 during the month of September, when he hit four of his six home runs. He's shown the ability to hit consistently in short bursts but never over an extended period of time. Engel is looking to become Chicago's fourth outfielder and defensive replacement when needed. If he hits with any regularity, Engel could serve as the right-handed component in a right field platoon with the left-handed hitting Nomar Mazara.

White Sox's Adam Engel: Not starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Engel is not in the lineup Tuesday against Cleveland.

Engel has moved into the starting role in center field and has rewarded the White Sox with a 1.050 OPS and four homers over his last 12 games. Leury Garcia slides to center field on this occasion, with Daniel Palka starting in right.

White Sox's Adam Engel: Regular lineup presence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Engel went 2-for-4 in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Tigers.

Engel started in center field for the 13th time in the last 15 games, and he has hit well enough to maintain a presence in the lineup. Hitting with regularity has always been a hurdle to consistent playing time for Engel, who is batting .265 with four home runs and nine RBI during that stretch.

White Sox's Adam Engel: Out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Engel is not starting Wednesday against the Twins.

After starting 10 straight contests, Engel now hits the bench for the second time in three days. Leury Garcia again moves to center field Wednesday, with Daniel Palka in right.

White Sox's Adam Engel: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Engel will be on the bench Monday in Minnesota.

Engel hits the bench after starting 10 straight games. Leury Garcia slides to center field in his absence, with Ryan Goins starting in right.

White Sox's Adam Engel: Knocks fourth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Engel went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Friday's 9-7 win over the Mariners.

The center fielder went deep in the third inning to cap a three-run frame for the White Sox that knocked Mariners starter Yusei Kikuchi from the game. Engel also singled in the second, but he was caught stealing. The 27-year-old has assembled a modest four-game hitting streak, going 6-for-16 with two homers, two RBI and three runs scored. For the year, he has four homers, 21 RBI and 22 runs scored in 185 at-bats.

White Sox's Adam Engel: Remains on bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Engel sits for the second straight game Wednesday against Cleveland.

Engel's .231/.306/.340 season slash line through 174 plate appearances certainly isn't enough to guarantee an everyday role. Leury Garcia will again slide to center field, with Daniel Palka starting in right.

White Sox's Adam Engel: Not in lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Engel is not starting Tuesday against Cleveland.

Engel sits after starting 11 of the last 12 games in center field. Leury Garcia shifts to center field in his absence, with Daniel Palka starting in right.

White Sox's Adam Engel: Scores twice in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Engel went 1-for-2 with two walks and two runs scored in Sunday's 5-3 loss to the Braves.

Engel reached base three times Sunday and has a .417 on-base percentage over the last 10 contests. He's been productive in small sample-sizes before, but it rarely sustains over longer stretches. Having started nine of the last 10 games, it looks like he'll get plenty of opportunities over the final month of the season. If the speedy outfielder continues to get on base, he brings stolen base potential, having swiped 197 bags in 534 minor-league games. However, he's stolen just three bases thus far with the White Sox in 2019.

White Sox's Adam Engel: Becomes lineup regular
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Engel went 1-for-4 with an RBI in Friday's 10-7 loss to the Braves.

Engel made his eighth start in the last nine games, benefiting from an injury to Eloy Jimenez (since returned) and the slumping Jon Jay, who was placed on the injured list Friday with a hip injury. Engel is hitting .280 with three doubles and three RBI during this stretch, although he's a career .210 hitter over three MLB seasons. With Jay headed for season-ending surgery, Engel could earn consistent at-bats over the final month if he continues to hit with regularity. Otherwise, Leury Garcia can handle center field with a combination of Ryan Goins (left-handed hitter) and Ryan Cordell (right-handed) in right.

August 29, 2019 01:00 PM
White Sox's Adam Engel: Overtakes Jay on depth chart
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Engel will start in center field and bat ninth Thursday against the Twins.

Included in the lineup for the seventh time in eight game, Engel appears to have unseated Jon Jay as a regular in the White Sox outfield. With a .639 OPS in 154 plate appearances this season, Engel doesn't offer much with the bat, but manager Rick Renteria appears to value the 28-year-old's defensive and baserunning skills.

August 25, 2019 01:36 PM
White Sox's Adam Engel: Fifth consecutive start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Engel will start in center field and bat eighth Sunday against the Rangers.

A uptick in recent matchups versus left-handed pitching coupled with Eloy Jimenez's brief absence due to a hip injury have opened up extra room in the outfield for Engel lately. He'll make a fifth straight start Sunday but should be limited to a short-side platoon role moving forward now that Jimenez is healthy again.
