  • Avisail Garcia says next step is rehab assignment

    Chicago Sun-Times "Avisail Garcia was supposed to break out and establish himself as one of the American League’s best young players this season.

  • White Sox 3, Astros 2

    Chicago Sun-Times "No Chicago White Sox were more maligned than catcher Tyler Flowers and the team’s bullpen in the early months of the season.

  • GM Rick Hahn won’t say whether Sox are buying or selling

    Chicago Sun-Times "General manager Rick Hahn laughed when asked before the game Friday if the White Sox will be buyers or sellers leading up to the July 31 trade deadline.

  • Ozzie Guillen wants back in White Sox family

    Chicago Sun-Times "It’s easy to rewrite Ozzie Guillen’s history since he left the White Sox after the 2011 season.

  • Back spasm of little concern to Alexei Ramirez

    Chicago Tribune "White Sox shortstop Alexei Ramirez doesn't miss many games, so it was a take-notice moment when manager Robin Ventura pulled him from Saturday's 6-2 victory over the Indians in the fourth inning because of injury.

  • Red Sox complete comeback, beat White Sox, 5-4

    CSN New England "If this is the new reality -- playing younger guys and relying on energy as they learn their way -- then maybe the second half of the season might be interesting after all.

  • Gillaspie shows knee isn't an issue as White Sox top Red Sox

Gillaspie, who missed..." July 09

  • What if Jose Abreu had chosen the Red Sox over the White Sox?

  • Ventura says White Sox not ready to settle on one closer

    CSN Chicago "Just because he handled it well before doesn’t mean Zach Putnam would pitch the ninth inning on Sunday if the White Sox have a lead.

  • White Sox power past Blue Jays despite shaky relief

    Chicago Tribune "Manager Robin Ventura aptly described the White Sox's 5-4 victory over the Blue Jays on Friday night as a "thriller."

  • Orioles beat White Sox, 5-4, in series finale on wild pitch in 12th inning

    Baltimore Sun "The Orioles didn’t need a game-ending three-run homer Wednesday night to complete their second dramatic comeback victory in three games against the Chicago White Sox.

  • Quintana, Sox snap losing streak at five games in Baltimore

    CSN Chicago "So that’s what Robin Ventura had in mind when he asked for the White Sox to wear their big-boy pants. Well for starters, anyway.

  • Jose Abreu: I’d pass on Home Run Derby invitation

June 23

  • Mauer's clutch double leads Twins over White Sox

  • Twins win in a walk-off after blown save against White Sox

  • Sox hold on to top Giants 7-6

    Chicago Tribune "White Sox manager Robin Ventura guessed that runs might be scarce Wednesday afternoon at U.S. Cellular Field, when Sox left-hander Chris Sale faced Giants right-hander Tim Hudson.

  • White Sox offense finds its groove in win over Giants

    CSN Chicago "Adam Eaton thought it was a nice throwback to the games of yesteryear early Tuesday night when the PA system at U.S. Cellular Field was inoperable.
