Today’s News

Tonight’s Game

White Sox vs. Twins at Target Field, Minneapolis (7:10 p.m. CT, WPWR) in the second game of the three-game series. Probable Starters: LHP Carlos Rodon (6-5, 4.15) for the Sox, LHP Tommy Milone (6-4, 3.86) for Minnesota.

Rodon makes his 23rd appearance and 20th start of the season. He is 2-1 with a 1.61 ERA and 29 strikeouts over his last four starts. He won his last start on August 27 vs. the Mariners, allowing two runs on three hits over six innings.

Last Night’s Highlights

Adam Eaton went 4-5 with two RBI, Avi Garcia smashed his 12th homer, a two-run shot, and Chris Sale struck out 10 in 6.1 innings as the White Sox comeback fell short in our 8-6 loss to the Twins in the series opener…It was the 13th time this year that Chris reached double-digit Ks and the first time that’s happened in baseball since Randy Johnson fanned 10-plus in 13 games in 2004. The Sox ace, who got a no decision last night, now is 31 strikeouts from breaking Hall of Famer Ed Walsh‘s single-season club mark of 269 (1908).

Avi’s homer and Sale’s 10 Ks:

Quote of the Day

Robin on the September call-ups:

“Some of them have already been here…and if you have seen them you want to see where they’re at right now. If you haven’t seen them, you want to see them and where they’re at. September is for that. You want some depth, but mostly you want to see these guys up here and playing…(and) there might be (another) wave.”

To that last point, GM Rick Hahn said second baseman Micah Johnson and perhaps another player or two will be up after Charlotte’s season ends. Hahn indicated that he wanted Micah to play a bit more since he was recently activated from the disabled list.

Eight White Sox Selected to Play in Arizona Fall League

The White Sox have assigned eight players to the Glendale Desert Dogs of the Arizona Fall League. The club plays its home games at Camelback Ranch-Glendale, the spring training home of the Sox and Dodgers, and is comprised of prospects from the White Sox, Dodgers, Astros, Philles and Pirates.

The Sox prospects include: RHPs Brandon Brennan, Robinson Leyer, Peter Tago and J.B. Wendelken; INFs Keon Barnum, Nicky Delmonico and Jake Peter; plus OF Courtney Hawkins (pictured below).
