…that White Sox second base prospect Micah Johnson, who leads the minor leagues with 54 stolen bases for Class A Kannapolis, won the “Star of Stars” award Monday night at the South Atlantic League All-Star Game?

Signed on the Dotted Line

The Sox have come to terms with 27 of their 40 draft choices from this month’s First-Player Draft, including the top 11 picks.

Never a Dull Moment

To anyone following the White Sox this season, it’s obvious how many tight games the Sox have played. But when you take a closer look, the number of nail-biters is staggering. Of the 64 games the Sox have played, 51 have been decided by three runs or less. That’s 79.7 percent. We also have played 11 extra inning games, the most in the American League and second only in the majors to the Colorado Rockies (12).

Quote of the Day

Robin, on being selected as a coach for the American League in the All-Star Game, to be played on Tuesday, July 16, at New York’s Citi Field.

“It’s special, having played there (in New York with both the host Mets and Yankees), it makes it nice. It’s always an honor anytime you get asked to do anything with the All-Star Game…Even as a player guys should play…it’s important for the game. Anytime you’re asked to do it, you should honor that.”

Play of the Day

Chris Sale’s magnificent complete-game performance in last night’s 2-1 loss to the Astros. He allowed no earned runs, just five hits and a lone walk while striking out 14, just one shy of his career high of 15 accomplished in May of last year against Tampa Bay. It was also Chris’s sixth career game with 10 or more strikeouts.

Tomorrow’s Schedule

White Sox vs. Astros at Minute Maid Park (1:10 p.m., CT, CSN). Starters: LHP Hector Santiago (2-4, 3.12) for the Sox, LHP Dallas Keuchel (3-3, 4.37) for Houston. Hector earned his second win of the season last Sunday against the A’s. He pitched 6.1 innings, giving up just one earned run on four hits.

Did You Know…

…that this is the second time this month that the Sox have started all left-handers in a four-game series (Sale, Danks, Santiago and Jose Quintana)?

Herm
 
Jeff Passan of yahoo.com echoes what all of us at the White Sox have known for years–trainer Herm Schneider is something special.
 
 
Quote of the Day
 
Alex Rios on his 17-game hitting streak, currently the longest in the majors (via the Sun-Times’ Daryl Van Schouwen):
 
“I don’t want to think about it; I just want to be consistent and have a good approach at the plate. If I get a hit, I get a hit. Sometimes you hit the ball hard and don’t get one. And you have to be OK with that.”
 
Play of the Day
 
Since we’re in the midst of a season-long celebration of the 1983 “Winning Ugly” A.L. West champs and yesterday was an off-day for the 2013 White Sox, let’s relive a memorable Sox win that happened 30 years ago today at Comiskey Park:
 
The Sox got off to a quick start with eight runs in the first inning and went on to crush the Red Sox, 12-4, at Comiskey Park. Greg Luzinski (pictured below), Carlton Fisk, Ron Kittle, Jerry Hairston and Lorenzo Gray all homered in the victory. A couple of interesting side notes…It was the fifth consecutive game in which Luzinski homered and it was Gray’s first and only major league home run.

The Return of John Danks and a Fitting Tribute to the Chairman

Thursday, May 23, 2013
 
Today’s News
 
Danks: “It’s Like Christmas Day”
 
After last night’s game Robin announced that John Danks, who is coming off four minor-league rehab outings, has been reinstated from the disabled list and will make his first start of 2013 against Miami Friday night at U.S. Cellular Field. 
 
Danks, who made nine starts in 2012 before having shoulder surgery last August, said he was excited and might have some butterflies because it’s been so long since he last appeared in the major leagues. He said his return is so special that it feels like Christmas Day.
 
To make room on the 25-man roster, the Sox optioned LHP Donnie Veal to Class AAA Charlotte.
 
A Special Time
 
It was an honor to be in New York last night to see Jerry Reinsdorf receive the Lifetime Achievement Award at this year’s Sports Business Awards and to see the Sox and Bulls Chairman looking so proud with his son Michael, daughter-in-law Nancy and his grandchildren right beside him. 
 
Here are a few of the evening’s highlights and a link to a story by Richard Justice of mlb.com:
 
–Jerry joked during his speech that he thought so much of his daughter-in-law that if she ever decided to leave Michael, he was going with Nancy. The line, like many, drew laughs from the audience.
 
–It seemed strange to sit at a table with Sox GM Rick Hahn watching our game with the Red Sox on the MLB At-Bat app as the awards program was going on.
 
–Bulls GM Gar Forman asked jokingly if anyone had taken away Jerry’s phone for the night so that he wouldn’t be on it.
 
–The high point might have been a five-minute and 30-second video tribute done by MLB Productions’ Gary Waksman that featured interviews with Tony LaRussa, David Stern, Scottie Pippen, Michael Jordan, Paul Konerko and Bud Selig. It was narrated by Kenny Williams (if the day job doesn’t work out, Williams might have a future in voiceovers.).
 
–After the ceremony, several White Sox staffers headed to a nearby sports bar where the establishment was kind enough to throw the last two innings of our game onto one of the televisions. Alas, a great night couldn’t quite deliver a perfect ending.
 
 
Quote of the Day
 
Robin, having some fun with reporters when asked what he expects from John Danks’ start on Friday:
 
“A perfect game…27 strikeouts and a perfect game. (A no-hitter) would be acceptable.”
 
Play of the Day
 
Hector Santiago’s solid six-inning performance against the Red Sox last night after only three days of rest and a bullpen session the day before. He gave up just two runs and three hits while striking out nine and walking four.
 
Tomorrow’s Schedule
 
White Sox vs. Marlins at U.S. Cellular Field (7:10 p.m., CT, CSN) in the opener of a three-game series. Starters: John Danks (0-0) for the Sox, Tom Koehler (0-2) for Miami.
 
Did You Know…
 
…that Alex Rios’s sixth-inning single last night extended his hitting streak to 17 games, the longest in the major leagues this season? During the streak, Rios is batting .388 with seven doubles, a triple, four home runs, 13 RBI and 13 runs scored, including seven multi-hit games. The last Sox player to hit safely in as many games was Carlos Lee (28 games) in 2004.

Robin Debriefs ESPN
 
Prior to tonight’s game, RV met with a small army of ESPN broadcasters, reporters and producers to talk about the team’s season to date and this evening’s starter Chris Sale. Among his comments, Ventura confirmed just how much losing Gordon Beckham has hurt the team’s defense.
 
Wells vs. Wilson
 
It’s no wonder why Sox outfielder Casper Wells is in the lineup tonight against C.J. Wilson. In his career, Wells has gone 4-9 (.444) with two doubles, two homers, two RBI and three walks (.583 OBP and 1.333 SLG).

John, in another rehab stint, earned the victory with six innings of work, allowing two earned runs, seven hits, three walks and five strikeouts. Jordan, just optioned to the Knights by the Sox, certainly had his brother’s back with a pair of hits, three RBI and an outstanding catch in centerfield in the 6- 4 win.

Matt Lindstrom, Matt Thornton, Jesse Crain and Addison Reed finished it off with 3.2 scoreless innings. Reed recorded his 10th save in as many attempts.
 
Quote of the Day
 
Robin on the Sox winning their first road series of the year:
 
“Nobody’s easy, but these guys (the Rangers) are tough. We scratched Jake tonight, Hector fills in on short rest and does a great job. It’s a good way to start a road trip, especially how bad the last one was. Not only were we losing, but losing people. 
 
“We’re still losing people, but at least we’re winning games.” 
 
Always taking things in stride, RV said the last sentence with a chuckle.

Gavin to DL; Heath Promoted

Before today’s game, the Sox placed Gavin Floyd on the 15-day DL with a flexor muscle strain in his right elbow and Deunte Heath was promoted from Class AAA Charlotte to replace him on the roster. Hector Santiago will replace Floyd in the rotation while Heath will be part of the bullpen mix.

Keppinger Update

Beckham Speaks

Gordon Beckham, on the DL with a fractured hamate bone in his left wrist, visited with Hawk and Steve today in the WGN booth during the top of the third inning. Beckham said he feels that he turned the corner last season and has gotten back to where he was in his rookie year. He added that it’s the first time he’s been on the DL, which has been a different experience, and he’s working hard to get back on the field as soon as possible. Gordon also said his job now is to be a good teammate by giving his support on the bench and in the clubhouse.

Quote of the Day

Today, Hall of Famer Carlton “Pudge” Fisk, a star on the ’83 Sox, threw out the ceremonial first pitch and expressed how much he enjoys coming back to the ballpark:

“A good part about these Throwback Sundays is remembering the ’83 team with the uniforms and the guys, calling us back. I haven’t seen Thiggy (Bobby Thigpen) for a long time or Harold (Baines) or all these guys. Then once you see them it’s like you’ve been around them all these years. It’s really familiar and very satisfying to come here and be a part of the whole deal.”
