Player Notes

  • Close to starting rehab assignment
    White Sox general manager Rick Hahn said Monday that Hamilton (hamstring) could begin a minor-league rehab assignment in a week to 10 days, Jay Cohen of the Associated Press reports.

    Advice: Hamilton has been on the shelf since May 10 with a left hamstring strain. While the 32-year-old switch-hitter appears to be making strides in his recovery and could be ready to rejoin the White Sox by mid-June if he's able to head out on a rehab assignment in the next week, he's not guaranteed to have a spot on the 26-man active roster waiting for him once he's reinstated. Even if the White Sox value Hamilton's speed and defense enough to keep a spot open for him on the bench once he's healthy, he'll rarely start and will be difficult to stream for stolen bases even in AL-only leagues. 15 minutes ago
  • Homers in second straight game
    Gonzalez went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Monday's 6-4 loss to the Angels.

    Advice: After going without a home run in his first 58 plate appearances of the season, Gonzalez has now popped solo blasts in both of the White Sox's past two games. He appears to have supplanted Hanser Alberto as Chicago's preferred second baseman for the time being, but both Gonzalez and Alberto will see their opportunities take a hit when Elvis Andrus (oblique) likely returns from the 10-day injured list later this week. 21 minutes ago
  • Productive near bottom of order
    Trammell went 0-for-2 with two walks and a run in a loss to the Yankees on Monday.

    Advice: Trammell got the call at designated hitter for only his second start since May 20, reaching safely multiple times via walk or hit for the first time since May 7 in the process. However, Trammell's overall struggles at the plate, which are encapsulated in his .143/.294/.357 slash line, are likely to keep his playing time fairly irregular as long as the starting outfield is healthy. 22 minutes ago
  • Tosses sim game
    Clevinger (wrist) tossed a simulated game Monday in Chicago, reports.

    Advice: Per James Fegan of The Athletic, White Sox general manager Rick Hahn said that Clevinger could be activated from the 15-day injured list before the team's homestand comes to an end this weekend, and the right-hander's ability to face hitters Monday seemingly supports Hahn's claim. Clevinger will presumably throw a bullpen session Wednesday or Thursday before the White Sox determine whether he's fit to return from the jammed right wrist he suffered in his May 17 start versus Cleveland, or if he'll require another simulated game or a minor-league rehab start prior to being activated. If the White Sox decide to give Clevinger more time to heal up, Jesse Scholtens would likely be in store for another turn through the rotation this weekend versus the Tigers. 27 minutes ago
  • Steals seventh base in loss
    Kelenic went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and a run in a loss to the Yankees on Monday.

    Advice: Kelenic reached a new career high with his seventh stolen base of the season following his second-inning single, helping Seattle manufacture its first run of the game by eventually working his way home on a pair of groundouts. The 23-year-old is picking up some momentum at the plate as May concludes, as he's now reached safely in six of 13 plate appearances across the last three games. 28 minutes ago
  • Dominant in first win
    Erceg (1-0) got the win over Atlanta on Monday, firing three perfect innings during which he recorded four strikeouts.

    Advice: The rookie southpaw got his nine outs on a relatively efficient 47 pitches and extended his scoreless streak to four appearances in the process. Monday's outing was Erceg's longest by far during his brief big-league career, one in which Martin Gallegos of notes the left-hander flashed a fastball averaging 97.6 mph that he complemented with a biting slider and power sinker. Erceg's body of work thus far -- especially against a talented Atlanta lineup -- has undoubtedly helped him quickly earn manager Mark Kotsay's trust, with the Athletics skipper deviating from his plan to only use Erceg for one inning Monday after seeing how effective he was in that initial frame. 34 minutes ago
  • Shaky in season debut
    Hendriks (illness) allowed two earned runs on three hits and one walk while pitching the eighth inning of Monday's 6-4 loss to the Angels.

    Advice: After being diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma in January and requiring multiple months of chemotherapy, Hendriks was cleared to return from the 15-day injured list Monday for his 2023 season debut. Since Hendriks wasn't particularly sharp over his six rehab appearances prior to being activated -- he gave up six earned runs in five innings -- White Sox manager Pedro Grifol elected to ease the veteran closer back into the mix in a non-save situation Monday. Hendriks entered the contest with the White Sox trailing 4-3 and received a rousing ovation from the home crowd, but he wasn't able to execute during his time on the mound. He needed 27 pitches just to record three outs and threw just 16 strikes. Though the White Sox likely envision Hendriks eventually reclaiming full-time closing duties, Kendall Graveman and Joe Kelly could both still be in the mix for save chances in the short term while Hendriks attempts to regain form following a lengthy layoff from game action. 35 minutes ago
  • Multi-hit effort in debut
    Bride, recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas earlier in the day, went 2-for-3 with a run in a win over Atlanta on Monday.

    Advice: Bride started at third base and carried over his momentum from his tenure with the Aviators, where he'd produced a blistering .308/.416/.577 slash line across 186 plate appearances. Bride limped to a .204 average and .548 OPS over his first 187 big-league plate appearances a season ago, but he's thrived offensively in his last three minor-league stints and should be given a long look on the non-contending A's. 39 minutes ago
  • Uncorks key three-run blast
    Noda went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in a win over Atlanta on Monday.

    Advice: Noda's 355-foot shot in the fifth with Jonah Bride and Esteury Ruiz aboard snapped a 1-1 tie and gave the Athletics a lead they wouldn't relinquish. Noda has now reached safely in 11 straight starts, a stretch where he owns a .973 OPS despite a pair of hitless pinch-hit at-bats and a 36.2 percent strikeout rate. 43 minutes ago
