    Dylan Cease admitted Monday he sometimes thinks about his chances of winning the American League Cy Young Award during his breakout season. Chalk it up to the joy of youth? “Old guys think about it too,” Justin Verlander said with a laugh. “It’s very natural.” Cease, the 26-year-old Chicago White Sox ace, faces Verlander, the 39-year-old Cy Young favorite, on Tuesday night at Guaranteed Rate Field in the second game of a key series between the Sox and Houston Astros. Monday’s 4-2, come-from-behind Sox victory was an appetizer for the main course, and both starters seemed primed for the showdown. “Two guys having good years, and it’ll be fun,” Verlander said. “I don’t think you get a lot of moments where you get two guys having great years like this matchup. Things have to align, so it’s very exciting.” The game has changed so much over the years, with starters getting lifted even after six or seven no-hit innings and front-office executives game-planning the pitching moves with the manager hours before the first pitch. Whether it’s better or worse for...

    Growing up, Dylan Cease always looked forward to watching a Justin Verlander start. “Just the fact that, especially back in the day, he would start out at 92 (mph) and finish at 101,” Cease said Monday. “I remember watching him a lot as a kid and seeing that. The fact that I’m here now and he’s still doing it, it’s pretty rare.” Cease and Verlander, candidates for the American League Cy Young Award, are the scheduled starters Tuesday when the Chicago White Sox continue their four-game series with the Houston Astros at Guaranteed Rate Field. “You got Cease for us has been killing it, and Verlander has been doing it for so long,” Sox outfielder AJ Pollock said. “I’m sure people will be tuned in. Yeah, it’s quite a matchup for fans.” The 39-year-old Verlander, in his 17th season, leads the majors in wins (15), ERA (1.85) and WHIP (0.86). Cease said one thing that stands out about Verlander is “he’s consistently in the strike zone.” Verlander told reporters Monday that while he hasn’t seen Cease much, he is impressed...
    Andrew Vaughn blooped a single to right field in the third inning Thursday against the Kansas City Royals. Seby Zavala, who began the inning with a single and advanced to second on a Luis Robert hit, got a late break on the play and only made it to third. Still, the Chicago White Sox had the bases loaded with no outs. It appeared that the Sox were heading toward a big inning. Instead, Royals starter Zack Greinke struck out Eloy Jiménez and José Abreu. Yasmani Grandal worked a full count before grounding out to shortstop Nicky Lopez, keeping the Sox scoreless. It was that type of day — and trip — for the Sox. They wasted another fantastic outing from Dylan Cease with a 5-3 loss to the Royals in front of 10,009 at Kauffman Stadium. “We had (14) hits, had a real good effort,” Sox manager Tony La Russa said. “The guy on the mound (Greinke) has made a real good career at pitching out of that. Cease was outstanding but we got ready to play. We created the...
    When you’re a major-league pitcher and are mentioned alongside Bob Gibson, you know you’re doing something right. And Dylan Cease has been doing plenty right during a historic run. The Chicago White Sox right-hander followed up a fantastic June with a July that was just as impressive. He was named the American League Pitcher of the Month in both months. He allowed one run on two hits in six innings Friday in his first August start, earning the win in a 2-1 victory against the Texas Rangers at Globe Life Field. It was his 13th consecutive start allowing one or no earned runs. He’s the first starter (non-opener) in American or National League history to accomplish the feat, according to STATS. “Truthfully I don’t really think about it that much,” Cease said of the stretch after Friday’s game. “I’m more focused on what I need to do to keep it going.” Manager Tony La Russa credited Cease for avoiding distractions. “The most important thing is the way that he’s handling it mentally,” La Russa said after Friday’s game. “Feels good...
    The favorites to win the AL Cy Young are obvious but Dylan Cease has been so dominant the White Sox ace can only be overlooked for so long. Entering Saturday, Houston Astros veteran Justin Verlander has been turning back the clock so exceptionally that he’s the clear-cut favorite to win the AL Cy Young award at season’s end. Not too far behind him in consideration, though, is a fresh face in the race, Tampa Bay Rays young ace Shane McClanahan. Consensus odds have Verlander as a -125 favorite with McClanahan sitting at +250 to take home the honor. Then there is another drop before you get to Chicago White Sox stud Dylan Cease at +400 before a massive drop-off with the next candidate at +2000. But even being the only other pitcher in the stratosphere of Verlander and McClanahan, Cease deserves more consideration than he’s getting as an AL Cy Young candidate this season.Dylan Cease has been dominant enough for White Sox to warrant more serious Cy Young considerationOn Friday evening, Cease led the White Sox to another victory as...
    Dylan Cease walked Marcus Semien with two outs in the second inning Friday night. That was the last Texas Rangers batter to reach against the Chicago White Sox starter, who retired the final 13 he faced. Cease allowed one run on two hits in six innings, Eloy Jiménez hit a go-ahead home run in the fourth and the Sox beat the Rangers 2-1 in front of 25,470 at Globe Life Field. Cease struck out five and walked three on the way to his 13th consecutive start of allowing one or no earned runs, breaking a tie with Jacob deGrom of the New York Mets (2021) for the longest streak since the stat became official in 1913 (excluding openers). “It’s definitely the best I’ve ever pitched in my life,” Cease said of the stretch. “I’m happy about it. I’m happy to be giving us a chance. Hope to keep it going.” Cease improved to 12-4 while lowering his ERA to 1.98. He and relievers Joe Kelly, Kendall Graveman and Liam Hendriks combined for a three-hitter as the Sox moved into a...
    The Chicago White Sox enter August above .500. Back in spring training, that would have seemed a given considering the talent on a team that broke camp with World Series aspirations. But it took six strong innings from Dylan Cease on Sunday to make it a reality as the Sox beat the Oakland Athletics 4-1 in front of 30,028 at Guaranteed Rate Field. Cease allowed one run on four hits with seven strikeouts and one walk to win his fourth consecutive start. “They are all different (outings),” Cease said, “but this one was a little hairy in the sense they almost hit three home runs in (the second) inning, but fortunately two of those went foul. They battled really well. I tip my cap to them. I’m fortunate and I’m grateful we came away with that. “All-around really good team win. Offense backed me up. Defense was great. Bullpen was great. Can’t draw it up much better.” The Sox took two of three from the A’s — owners of the worst record in the American League — to improve to...
    Dylan Cease probably will never know the reason why he wasn’t selected this season to the American League All-Star squad. Maybe the Chicago White Sox starter doesn’t even want to know at this point. “Statistically, the first half I put up kind of speaks for itself,” Cease said Sunday after earning his tenth victory in a 6-3 win over the Cleveland Guardians. “Unfortunately all the other stuff is out of my hands. I think I should have at least been highly, highly considered.” Cease finished the first half ranked first in the majors in strikeouts per nine innings (12.90) and third in the AL in ERA (2.15) while going 9-4. Even after AL starter Justin Verlander pulled out of the game, the league chose closer Liam Hendriks for a roster spot instead of Cease, who deserved the nod more than his teammate. It never made much sense, but credit Cease for declining to complain about the injustice. All he can do now is prove they were wrong, and he continued on that trek Sunday with six shutout innings. “The only...
    Dylan Cease didn’t need any extra motivation this week. The Chicago White Sox starter has pitched well enough to be an All-Star. He wasn’t on the roster when the pitchers were announced last Sunday. And then he went back to work with two more stellar outings before the break. He was in top form Sunday, allowing one hit while striking out eight and walking two in seven innings in an 11-0 victory against the Minnesota Twins in front of 23,225 at Target Field. “I want to win,” Cease said. “I don’t need any extra motivation. It’s definitely not hard to find these days.” Cease and relievers Joe Kelly and José Ruiz combined on the one-hitter, helping the Sox take three of four in an important division series. “Dylan, he was the horse we rode,” Sox manager Tony La Russa said. “He was doing it efficiently and could have pitched longer, but we stopped in the seventh. What he’s done all year. He’s picked us up at important times. This was an important one.” Yoán Moncada (two-run) and Andrew Vaughn hit...
    Andrew Vaughn’s grounder just squeaked between third baseman José Ramírez and shortstop Amed Rosario for a two-out single in the first inning. The Chicago White Sox wouldn’t get another hit against Cleveland Guardians starter Shane Bieber until an infield single by José Abreu with one out in the seventh. Bieber has often given the Sox fits, and Tuesday was no different. The Sox were limited to three hits in a 4-1 loss in the first game of a split doubleheader at Progressive Field. Dylan Cease gave what manager Tony La Russa called an “All-Star worthy” performance in Game 2, helping the Sox earn a split with a 7-0 victory. Cease, who was not included on the All-Star roster when pitchers and reserves were announced Sunday, allowed five hits and struck out nine while walking three in 5⅔ innings. “The biggest thing is just beating (an American League) Central opponent,” Cease said. “I definitely want to keep adding to what I’ve been doing.” He received early support when Abreu hit a two-run homer in the first against Konnor Pilkington, whom the...
    Dylan Cease ranks among the best in the American League in several pitching categories. He led the league in strikeouts per nine innings (13.01) entering Monday and was second in strikeouts (133) and fourth in ERA (2.45). Despite the impressive numbers, Cease’s name did not appear Sunday afternoon when Major League Baseball announced the pitchers and reserves for this year’s All-Star Game. “It’s disappointing, but I can’t control it so I’m just going to focus on what I can control,” Cease said before Monday’s game against the Cleveland Guardians at Progressive Field. Cease will be back on the mound Tuesday in Game 2 of a split doubleheader against the Guardians. Davis Martin is slated to pitch Game 1. Cease has built on his 2021 season, when he showed growth while going 13-7 with a 3.91 ERA and 226 strikeouts. He’s 7-4 in 17 starts, and his 2.3 WAR is seventh among AL pitchers, according to Baseball Reference. “He’s got the type of stuff that could be special,” Sox catcher Yasmani Grandal said last week at Guaranteed Rate Field. “He’s made...
    Dylan Cease, Chicago White Sox, MLB All-Star Game. (Photo by Jamie Sabau/Getty Images) Here are some of the best players who got snubbed from the 2022 MLB All-Star Game. While many big leaguers are celebrating going to the 2022 MLB All-Star Game in Los Angeles, not everybody who should have made either roster ended up doing so. Although there will be adjustments made to the American League and National League rosters in the coming days (injuries, pitchers not having enough rest to participate, etc.), we do have a few marquee players who are not yet going to Dodger Stadium in week and change. Admittedly, we don’t want no snubs, but a snub is a guy who can’t get no love from his All-Star Game manager. Hopefully, any of these players mentioned by ESPN’s Jeff Passan will get to Los Angeles soon. Most egregious All-Star snubs: Carlos Rodon, Will Smith, Ty France, Tommy Edman, Dylan Cease, Zack Wheeler, Brandon Drury, Josh Bell, Devin Williams, Aaron Nola, Kevin Gausman, Austin Riley. Many more belong (Nimmo, Reynolds, Schreiber, King). And plenty will be...
    Dylan Cease had a terrific June, earning American League Pitcher of the Month honors. His July had a bumpy beginning Saturday before the Chicago White Sox starter returned to award-winning form. Cease allowed one run and four hits in five innings, leading the Sox to a 5-3 victory against the San Francisco Giants in front of 30,804 at Oracle Park. Cease struck out four and walked three in the 104-pitch outing, a performance he described as “good enough.” “It wasn’t my sharpest and I wasn’t able to go deep because I didn’t execute well, I didn’t get ahead,” Cease said. “But I kept us in there.” The one run he gave up came on a leadoff homer from LaMonte Wade Jr. in the bottom of the first. The next batter, Joc Pederson, doubled and Cease also issued a walk in the inning. But he avoided giving up any more runs in the inning. “Continue to attack,” Cease said of his approach after the homer. The Sox were in attack mode at the plate, putting the ball in play and making...
    Chicago White Sox starter Dylan Cease was named the American League Pitcher of the Month for June, Major League Baseball announced Saturday. Cease went 2-1 with a 0.33 ERA, 45 strikeouts and a .192 opponents average in five June starts. He’s the first Sox pitcher to win the award since Lucas Giolito in May 2019. Cease struck out a career-high 13 batters in seven innings Tuesday against the Baltimore Orioles at Guaranteed Rate Field. He is 6-3 with a 2.56 ERA and 121 strikeouts in 15 starts this season. Cease started Saturday against the San Francisco Giants at Oracle Park. ()
    Dylan Cease made it to the Chicago White Sox dugout, where catcher Seby Zavala was waiting to deliver a huge hug. Cease gave the Sox a boost the team desperately needed, allowing one run while striking out a career-high 13 during seven tremendous innings in a 4-3 victory against the Baltimore Orioles Sunday at Guaranteed Rate Field. “I want to be that guy that the team can rely on,” Cease said. “To go out and give seven like that is definitely a positive.” Cease (6-3) allowed four hits and walked one while reaching double digits in strikeouts for the 13th time in his career and fourth time this season. “He’s up there with the top echelon of starting pitchers,” Sox manager Tony La Russa said. “Just look at the work he’s doing against the teams he’s doing it to. The quality of the pitches. Going through those lineups three times. “He’s special. It’s fun to watch him.” Gavin Sheets hit a two-run homer, Lenyn Sosa had his major-league hit with a double in the third and Andrew Vaughn and Zavala...
    One of the fastest runners in baseball, Jorge Mateo dashed from second and rounded third on Cedric Mullins’ bases-loaded line drive to center. A couple of defensive miscues from the Chicago White Sox had started the Orioles’ ninth-inning rally, and another would allow them to tie Sunday’s series finale at Guaranteed Rate Field. Instead, center fielder Luis Robert smoothly caught Mullins’ stinger and shortstop Tim Anderson handled the throw back to the infield, prompting Mateo to stay at third as Adley Rutschman scored from third to cut the Orioles’ deficit to one. It remained there, with Trey Mancini striking out with the potential tying and winning runs on base to end Baltimore’s four-game winning streak in a 4-3 defeat. “We were one short tonight,” manager Brandon Hyde said. “We stay in it. Guys are getting down the line, putting pressure on defense. Liked the way we were running the bases hard. “We gave them a run there at the end.” That it was even that close is a testament to how the Orioles (34-40) have played of late, given how...
    The Orioles battled until the last out but were unable to extend their winning streak Sunday afternoon. Chicago White Sox right-hander Dylan Cease struck out a career-high 13 batters in a 4-3 victory to prevent what would have been Baltimore’s first four-game road sweep since 2011. Baltimore (34-40) scored twice in the ninth and had the potential tying and go-ahead runs on base, but Trey Mancini struck out to end the game and the Orioles’ four-game winning streak. Cease went seven innings and allowed four hits, one of them a solo shot by Jonathan Araúz for his first hit with Baltimore. Orioles starter Jordan Lyles also covered seven frames, though he dealt with much more traffic. The four runs Lyles surrendered matched the total the rest of the pitching staff allowed since he exited his previous start Tuesday. Gilman product Gavin Sheets, the son of former Oriole Larry Sheets, got the White Sox on the board with a two-run home run in the bottom of the second. Araúz answered with his home run in the top of the third, but...
    Victor Reyes and Harold Castro singled to begin the bottom of the fifth for the Detroit Tigers. Chicago White Sox pitching coach Ethan Katz went to the mound to have a discussion with starter Dylan Cease, who was looking to hold on to a three-run lead. “He was just trying to slow me down, saying ‘hey, you execute your pitch right here, good things are going to happen,’ ” Cease said. Cease executed and the good things followed for the right-hander. He struck out Willi Castro looking and induced Austin Meadows to hit a grounder to first, where José Abreu threw to second for a force. Javier Báez flied out to left fielder AJ Pollock as Cease escaped the jam without allowing a run. Cease allowed one unearned run on seven hits in five innings, pitching the Sox to a 5-1 victory against the Tigers in front of 16,450 on Tuesday at Comerica Park. He struck out eight and walked one in the 108-pitch outing. “I was able to compete and get through five,” Cease said. “Would have liked to...
    Vince Velasquez was in line to start Friday for the Chicago White Sox in the series opener against the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field. Instead, the right-hander was placed on the 15-day injured list with with a left groin strain. The move is retroactive to Tuesday. Sox manager Tony La Russa said the injury occurred while Velasquez was shagging baseballs during a recent batting practice before a game against the Toronto Blue Jays. “(Shagging) is part of his conditioning, and you watch him, he’s a great athlete,” La Russa said Friday. “He came in after the batting practice (Wednesday) and said, ‘I feel a little something.’ We weren’t sure, give it 24 hours. (Thursday), when he was treated, the doctors said he has some kind of strain in that groin area. He had an MRI, so he’s going to be out, at least for the disabled period.” Velasquez’s placement on the IL was one of six roster moves the team announced Friday. The Sox recalled right-hander Davis Martin from Triple-A Charlotte to start Friday’s game against the Rays. “Once...
    Chicago White Sox general manager Rick Hahn indicated the team would have to make a couple of roster moves before its trip to Toronto. “Our current active roster is not 100% vaxxed,” Hahn said Saturday. “As a result, two players will likely need to be replaced when we get there. “Other teams have had to deal with it on their way in and respect the fact that’s the law of the land up there, and we’ll be compliant.” The Sox announced the moves Monday, placing starting pitcher Dylan Cease and reliever Kendall Graveman on the restricted list. The Sox also recalled pitcher Kyle Crick from Triple-A Charlotte and placed pitcher Dallas Keuchel on waivers for the purpose of granting his unconditional release. The Sox begin a three-game series against the Blue Jays on Tuesday in Toronto. “The baseball rule, or administrative rule, that applies is that those (unvaccinated) players wind up on the restricted list and are eligible for replacement according to the rules,” Hahn said. According to an April 25 ESPN article, “The Canadian government isn’t allowing unvaccinated travelers...
    Enrique Hernández hit Dylan Cease’s first pitch over the left-field wall. It was the start of a tough Tuesday for Cease and the Chicago White Sox. Cease had his roughest outing of the season in a 16-3 loss to the Boston Red Sox in front of 21,835 at Guaranteed Rate Field. The right-hander allowed a season-high seven runs on eight hits in a season-low three innings. He had four strikeouts and two walks. “We’re going to have to take some time, look into it,” Cease said. “They put some good swings on it.” The White Sox allowed season highs in runs and hits (19). The Red Sox also recorded season highs in both categories while stretching their winning streak to six. “You take 30-some starts and you are going to have some where your location is not good,” Sox manager Tony La Russa said, “and he just wasn’t sharp and they were ready to hit and made him pay. “The pitches that they put in play, they had a lot of the strike zone. So he just wasn’t as sharp...
    Dylan Cease had to deal with traffic in every inning of Tuesday’s start against the Kansas City Royals. The Chicago White Sox right-hander made the big pitches each time. Cease allowed seven hits and struck out nine in 5⅔ innings, leading the Sox to a 3-0 victory in Game 1 of a doubleheader at Kauffman Stadium. “(The Royals) did a really good job of getting on,” Cease said. “There was a lot of traffic today, but fortunately I executed pitches with guys in scoring position pretty well and got some big strikeouts.” The Sox received more strong pitching in Game 2 from starter Davis Martin, who allowed one run on five hits with seven strikeouts and a walk in five innings in his major-league debut. But the Sox couldn’t get much going against Brady Singer, and the Royals won 2-1. Cease surrendered a season-high six runs in four innings in his last start Thursday against the New York Yankees. He bounced back, combining with four relievers for the shutout. “He gave us all that he had,” Sox manager Tony La...

He bounced back, combining with four relievers for the shutout. “He gave us all that he had,” Sox manager Tony La Russa said. “He got into the sixth with two outs and that’s outstanding.” Cease faced challenges from the start, as Royals leadoff batter Whit Merrifield doubled in the first. He moved to third with one out, but Cease struck out Salvador Perez and Ryan O’Hearn to end the...
    “Bro, there ain’t gonna be any home runs today.” Those were the famous last words of Chicago White Sox pitcher Lucas Giolito after Dylan Cease predicted Tim Anderson was about to go yard last week at Wrigley Field. Giolito’s statement made perfect sense. It was cold and rainy, with a 23 mph wind blowing in from the north for the opening game of the City Series. Leading off the third inning, Anderson faced Keegan Thompson, who had not yielded a home run in 17⅔ innings entering the inning. But Cease was undeterred. “I believe in him,” Cease told Giolito. “I’m going to go ‘Home run over the Sloan (sign) in right field. Oppo home run.’” Anderson quickly grabbed hold of a cut fastball on the first pitch and delivered it over the Sloan ad in right field. As the Sox dugout celebrated, Cease shook his head. “I die a legend now,” he said. “That’s all I can say.” The serendipitous moment was captured on video for posterity and might have to go into a 2022 time capsule if the Sox...
    Dylan Cease was in command against the entire Los Angeles Angels lineup Monday — and Mike Trout was no exception. Cease struck out the three-time American League MVP three times in the Chicago White Sox’s 3-0 victory, part of an 11-strikeout performance that matched the right-hander’s career high. He got Trout swinging in the first inning, retired him on a 98 mph fastball in the fourth and struck him out looking in the seventh. “That was the best start of my career by far, from execution to stuff to results,” said Cease, who allowed just one hit in seven innings. “That’s definitely a good one to build on.” Cease and relievers Kendall Graveman and Liam Hendriks limited the Angels to two hits and struck out 15 as the Sox gained a split of the four-game series in front of 13,112 at Guaranteed Rate Field. “I don’t think you can say enough about what Cease has been able to do the whole year,” said Hendriks, who struck out the side in the ninth and collected his fifth save. “He’s been unbelievable.”...
    Dylan Cease began his start Friday with a strikeout of Brandon Lowe. The Chicago White Sox right-hander’s outing wrapped up after he struck out Randy Arozarena for the second out of the sixth inning. Cease was pretty good in between too. He allowed one run on three hits with eight strikeouts and two walks in 5⅔ innings, pitching the Sox to a 3-2 win against the Tampa Bay Rays in front of 19,009 at Guaranteed Rate Field. “I felt great about this one,” Cease said. “I thought my command and feel was a lot better (than my first start). I was executing more consistently and I felt like I was able to drive the ball where I wanted to, whereas my first start was a little bit erratic at times.” Cease (2-0) recorded eight strikeouts for the second straight start as the Sox took the opener of a three-game series between two 2021 division winners. “He was outstanding,” Sox manager Tony La Russa said. “He made so many good pitches, starting from the first inning right to the sixth. “Everything...
    It was only the second game of the season. But with innings to fill because of injuries to other members of the rotation, the Chicago White Sox needed a performance like the one Dylan Cease delivered Saturday. The right-hander allowed one run on two hits with eight strikeouts and three walks in five-plus innings as the Sox beat the Detroit Tigers 5-2 in front of 17,469 at Comerica Park. “All of us as starters take that pride and that chip on our shoulder to go out and eat as many innings as we can,” Cease said. “It’s good because (the Tigers) won in a good fashion (Friday), but I think we showed that we’re still here.” Cease threw 79 pitches and exited after allowing a single to Austin Meadows to begin the sixth inning. “You lose a game like (Friday, 5-4 on Javier Báez’s game-winning hit in the ninth), the momentum is always the starting pitcher, and he was just outstanding,” Sox manager Tony La Russa said of Cease. “They have a nice club over there and he was rock-solid....
    KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Brady Singer tossed seven scoreless innings and Salvador Perez hit another home run as the Kansas City Royals beat the Chicago White Sox 6-0 on Sunday. Singer (4-9) matched his season high with seven innings and allowed four hits with no walks and struck out six. It was the third time this season that Singer has issued no walks. READ MORE: At Least 3 Killed, 47 Wounded In Chicago Labor Day Weekend Gun Violence “I think throughout the game the command actually got better,” Singer said. “I struggled with my slider early in the game but I figured that out throughout the game. I threw a few changeups that kept them off the other stuff.” Singer has struggled developing his changeup as a third pitch. But Royals manager Mike Matheny said it’s days like Sunday that might cause him to think he doesn’t need a third pitch. “That was probably the best fastball he’s had all season,” Matheny said. “The movement and location—he found it and he kept it down. There was only pitch that...
    Three wins and two games of 10 or more strikeouts was the balance of Dylan cease in August, until its opening against the Cubs this Sunday where he struck out 11 rivals and took a 13-1 victory at Guaranteed Rate Field. Dylan cease has had an excellent month of August, launching for the Chicago White Sox. He has started six games, with four victories without the shadow of defeat, with 50 strikeouts in 35.0 innings of work, and his opponents hit .176 with a 2.83 ERA.

    CHICAGO (AP) — Matt Olson slugged a go-ahead two-run homer, Matt Chapman added a solo shot and the Oakland Athletics rallied to beat the Chicago White Sox 5-4 on Thursday. Sean Murphy also homered as the A’s avoided a sweep in their four-game series with AL Central-leading Chicago. Oakland ended a four-game skid and maintained its grip on the second AL wild-card spot.

    HOUSTON (AP) — Jose Altuve homered for the fourth time in three games, Michael Brantley and Abraham Toro also connected, and the Houston Astros beat the Chicago White Sox 10-2 on Thursday night. “He continues to amaze us hitting the ball out of the ballpark,” manager Dusty Baker said of Altuve, who leads the team with 16 homers. “We’ll take all he can give us.” READ MORE: Some Residents Say A Bears Move To Arlington Heights Would Benefit Community, Others Say It Would Bring Unwelcome Traffic And Crowds Jose Urquidy (5-3) pitched seven strong innings to stifle Chicago’s powerful lineup, backed by a three-run shot from Brantley and a career-best four RBIs by Toro.

I only tell you this, loyal reader, because to be very honest with you for the first couple innings of the White Sox game I had half an eye on the game, and an eye and a half on the NFL Draft.

    CHICAGO (CBS) — The White Sox have put starting pitcher Dylan Cease on the 10-day injured list. The announcement came before the White Sox’ game against the Cleveland Indians Wednesday night. Right-hander Zack Burdi was recalled from the Schaumburg training facility to fill in. White Sox general Manager Rick Hahn said Cease was placed on the injured list precautionary – as Cease hasn’t tested positive for COVID-19, but does have some symptoms.
    CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago White Sox placed right-hander Dylan Cease on the injured list Wednesday in a precautionary move after he exhibited some symptoms associated with COVID-19. General manager Rick Hahn said Cease has not tested positive for COVID-19. “However, out of an abundance of caution, or arguably the appropriate amount of caution, we are going to keep Dylan away from the club until he can be cleared, based on the fact that he does have a couple of symptoms at this time,” Hahn said. “The length of Dylan’s stay on the injured list is still to be determined. We’re obviously hoping … that it will be a brief one.” Right-hander Zack Burdi was recalled from the team’s alternate site before its matchup with Cleveland. The 26-year-old Burdi made his big league debut last summer, going 0-1 with an 11.05 ERA in eight relief appearances. Cease, 25, has no record and a 3.86 ERA in two starts this year. He permitted one run in 4 2/3 innings during Sunday’s 10-inning loss to the Royals. Cease’s next turn in the...
