White Sox's Ryan Burr: Sent to Triple-A
Burr was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte on Friday, LaMond Pope of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Burr has surrendered six earned runs with a 7:4 K:BB over nine innings this year and will now head to the minors. He had a 2.45 ERA in 34 outings for Chicago in 2021, so he figures to rejoin the big-league bullpen at some point.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Michael Kopech: Back from paternity list
Kopech was activated from the paternity list Friday, LaMond Pope of the Chicago Tribune reports.
The 26-year-old landed on the paternity list Tuesday and will return without missing a start, as expected. Kopech lines up to take the mound Sunday against the Yankees, with Dallas Keuchel and Johnny Cueto poised to start the first two games of the series.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Johnny Cueto: Starting Saturday
Cueto is the probable pitcher for Saturday's game against the Yankees.
He will start on normal rest after stifling the Royals' offense Monday, but he will have a much tougher task against a Yankees offense that has a 120 wRC+ this season against right-handed pitching at home. It's unclear if the White Sox will go with a six-man rotation in the short term, but at least one pitcher will get bumped from the mix when Lance Lynn (knee) returns in June.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Kendall Graveman: Tallies ninth hold
Graveman allowed one hit in a scoreless eighth inning to record a hold Thursday against the Royals.
Graveman was tasked with protecting a three-run lead. He allowed a leadoff single but induced a groundout and double play to avoid any danger. It was a bounceback effort for Graveman, as he allowed three earned runs on four hits in his previous outing. For the season, Graveman owns a 2.79 ERA with an 18:5 K:BB and nine holds across 19.1 frames.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Tim Anderson: Fills box score
Anderson went 2-for-3 with two walks, two RBI, two stolen bases and a run scored Thursday against the Royals.
Anderson reached base on a walk in the second inning and proceeded to steal both second and third base. One frame later, he delivered a two-RBI single. Anderson continues to swing a hot bat, as he has tallied multiple hits in seven of his last 12 starts while also racking up five RBI and six runs scored. For the season, Anderson has maintained a .346/.386/.493 line to go along with four homers and seven stolen bases across 145 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Luis Robert: Slugs sixth homer
Robert went 3-for-4 with a home run and four RBI on Thursday against the Royals.
Robert tallied two separate RBI singles prior to taking Dylan Coleman yard in the eighth inning. He has six home runs on the season, and this effort marked his sixth multi-hit effort in his last 10 starts. Overall, Robert is hitting .301/.338/.472 with 17 RBI, 21 runs scored and six stolen bases across 130 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Vince Velasquez: Surrenders four runs
Velasquez allowed four earned runs on six hits and one walk while striking out three across five innings Thursday against Kansas City. He did not factor into the decision.
Velasquez allowed at least one earned run in each of his first three innings, including a two-run home run to Hunter Dozier. He's been crushed for combined 11 earned runs across his last two starts -- spanning 10 innings. For the season, Velasquez has a 5.79 ERA with a 28:13 K:BB across 32.2 frames.... See More ...

White Sox's Liam Hendriks: Earns 12th save
Hendriks allowed two hits and struck out one across a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save Thursday against the Royals.
Hendriks was tasked with protecting a three-run lead, but he made things interesting by allowing two of the first three batters he faced to reach base. However, he ultimately escaped the jam to tally his 12th save of the campaign. Hendriks has turned in three consecutive scoreless appearances and has a 3.93 ERA with a 28:5 K:BB across 18.1 frames for the season.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Yoan Moncada: Dealing with minor leg issue
Moncada felt discomfort in his leg during Thursday's game against the Royals, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.
Moncada didn't exit the game and went 1-for-5 with two strikeouts. Merkin added that Moncada was moving around fine after the game, and manager Tony La Russa also downplayed the severity of the problem. Given that context, the issue doesn't appear likely to cost Moncada time, but it will be worth confirming that he is in the lineup to start the White Sox's weekend series against the Yankees....

White Sox's Johnny Cueto: Second start coming Sunday
Cueto is listed as the White Sox's starting pitcher for Sunday's game against the Yankees in New York.
The White Sox could have turned to Dylan Cease to take the hill for Sunday's game on his normal four days' rest, but Cueto will instead get a two-start week after he turned in an impressive debut Monday's win in Kansas City. Though he was saddled with a no-decision, Cueto shut out the Royals over six innings and struck out seven while allowing only four baserunners. He'll draw a much tougher matchup for the second leg of the two step, as the Yankees offense has produced an MLB-best .331 wOBA this season, which includes a .337 mark at Yankee Stadium....

White Sox's Leury Garcia: On bench Thursday
Garcia is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Royals.
Garcia heads to the bench after going 3-for-18 with an RBI while starting in each of Chicago's last five games. Josh Harrison will start at second base for the second time in three games and may have taken back primary duties at that position, but Garcia's ability to play three infield and three outfield spots will create multiple values for him to pick up starts....

White Sox's Yasmani Grandal: Not starting Thursday
Grandal isn't starting Thursday against the Royals.
Grandal started in the last four games and went 4-for-16 with a homer, two RBI, a walk and two strikeouts. Reese McGuire will start behind the dish and bat eighth during Thursday's series finale.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Suffers first loss
Lopez (4-1) allowed two earned runs on two hits and no walks while striking out one across two innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Royals.
Lopez entered the game in the sixth inning with the score tied at two. He immediately ran into trouble, surrendering a single, triple and sacrifice fly to account for his two earned runs. Lopez had turned in six scoreless appearances -- spanning 6.1 innings -- prior to Wednesday's loss, also picking up two wins and a hold in that span. For the season, Lopez has maintained a 4.02 ERA with a 1.09 WHIP across 15.2 frames.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Tim Anderson: Collects three hits
Anderson went 3-for-5 with an RBI on Wednesday against the Royals.
Anderson was one of the few positives offensively for Chicago, as he delivered an RBI single in the fifth inning. It was his sixth multi-hit game in his last 11 starts, during which he's tallied four RBI and five runs scored. For the season, Anderson has maintained a .338/.371/.489 line across 140 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Lucas Giolito: Goes five innings in return
Giolito registered a no-decision during Wednesday's 6-2 loss to Kansas City, allowing two runs on seven hits and two walks with seven strikeouts in five innings.
Giolito struggled early, surrendering a combined six baserunners in the first two innings and a solo home run in the third, but the damage only amounted to two runs, and he departed with the score tied. The 27-year-old was making his first start since May 10 due to a brief stint on the COVID-19 injured list and the rust showed, with Giolito tossing only 55 of 92 pitches for strikes with 10 of the swinging variety. He's yet to allow more than three runs in a game through six turns and will take a solid 2.84 ERA into a projected start against Boston early next week.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Gavin Sheets: On bench Wednesday
Sheets isn't starting Wednesday against the Royals.
Even with right-hander Zack Greinke on the mound Wednesday, Sheets will get a chance to reset after he went 1-for-11 with a walk and three strikeouts over the last three games. Andrew Vaughn will serve as the designated hitter while Adam Engel starts in right field.... See More ... See Less
