    The Chicago White Sox saw Shohei Ohtani at the plate earlier this season at Guaranteed Rate Field. They are lined up to see the two-way star on the mound during their upcoming West Coast trip. The Sox begin a three-game series Monday against the Los Angeles Angels in Anaheim, Calif., and the 2021 American League MVP Ohtani — who has 16 home runs this season — is slated to pitch Wednesday. The Sox are off Thursday and then have three games at Oracle Park against the San Francisco Giants, who just called up former Sox Yermín Mercedes from Triple-A Sacramento. Here’s what to watch for as the Sox try to build off Sunday’s 4-3 win against the Baltimore Orioles. Monday-Wednesday: At Los Angeles Angels The teams split a four-game series April 29-May 2 at Guaranteed Rate Field.

    PITTSBURGH — The Giants on Saturday dipped back into the waiver wire and added a former Rookie of the Month. Yermín Mercedes, 29, was claimed by San Francisco after he was designated for assignment by the Chicago White Sox last week. To clear a spot on the 40-man roster, the Giants waived catcher Michael Papierski, whom they acquired in exchange for Mauricio Dubon after he was designated for assignment earlier this year. Mercedes, who is mostly limited to designated hitter but can also play first base and catcher, started last season with hits in his first eight at-bats, setting an MLB record, and went on to post a batting line of .415/.455/.659 for the month. Mercedes was named the American League Rookie of the Month for April 2021. Ever since, however, he has batted .196/.264/272 in limited major-league opportunities. Mercedes clashed with Chicago manager Tony La Russa over baseball’s so-called unwritten rules, but he should have no such issues with the Giants organization, which has shown no qualms with running up the score. La Russa last season called Mercedes “clueless”...
    A teenage rapper claimed that he was racially profiled in a wealthy Florida neighborhood and residents surrounded his car before smashing one of his windows after they accused him of drag racing. Jermaine, or known as rapper BKBpole, says he was driving to his friend's house in the Maple Glen Place neighborhood in Sanford, Florida when he was approached by residents on June 14. The 16-year-old was surrounded by multiple angry residents who began shouting at him to get out of their neighborhood. Jermaine says things escalated quickly to the point that one of the residents allegedly smashed in a window of his white C230 Mercedes-Benz. The cost of that model runs typically up to $30,000. That was when the young rapper began recording on his cellphone.   The video captured one man shouting that he was 'burning out racing through my f***ing neighborhood,' while taking photos of his license plate.

    GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Chicago White Sox designated hitter Yermín Mercedes will miss the start of the season because of a left hand injury. A CT scan on Friday showed a hamate fracture in Mercedes’ hand. The team said he will have surgery Monday, and his projected recovery time is six to eight weeks. The 29-year-old Mercedes was one of baseball’s hottest hitters at the beginning of last season, batting .415 with five homers and 16 RBIs in 22 games in April. He angered Hall of Fame manager Tony La Russa by homering on a 3-0 pitch from a Twins position player in the ninth inning of a 16-4 win at Minnesota on May 17. Mercedes eventually cooled off, hitting .150 (16 for 107) over his final 31 games with Chicago before being demoted to Triple-A Charlotte on July 2. After he was sent down, Mercedes announced he was quitting the game, and then returned to the Knights a day later. ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/hub/mlb and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press.

    OAKLAND — A 27-year-old man has been arrested and charged with murder in connection with a July fatal shooting in Oakland, court records show. Latrail White was arrested in Fremont on Feb. 10, and has been in Santa Rita Jail in Dublin ever since. Prosecutors have charged him with murdering Travis Ward, 48, of Oakland, as well as being a felon in possession of ammunition and firearms. Ward was shot and killed July 24, on the 1600 block of 23rd Avenue just north of Foothill Boulevard.  He was found in the street about 9:30 a.m. and was pronounced dead at the crime scene. Court records say that White was identified as a suspect early on, arrested in August, and released pending further police investigation. He denied any involvement in White’s killing, but during that incident, an assault rifle was found in the backseat of his Mercedes sedan, according to authorities. Police eventually linked the Mercedes to Ward’s killing and believe that White was the sole occupant when he allegedly opened fire at Ward. A suspected motive has not been released....
    Strange things happen to everyday objects when Joshua Vides applies his imagination to them — something metaphysical, almost magical. With a few deft strokes of his Sharpie pens or spritzes of spray paint, Vides blurs the line between two dimensions and three. A plain footstool jumps to life in trompe-l’oeil black and white — both a tangible artifact and an artsy abstraction. A mass-produced ‘70s-vintage Chuck Taylor sneaker mutates into a unique collectible that fetches multiple Benjamins. Inanimate stuff — a skateboard, a traffic cone and a bottle of Scotch — suddenly emits a weird energy, as if possessed by spirits. His creations have turned the former scofflaw graffitist into an illustrator and visual artist sought after by a growing list of global brands, including Adidas, Converse, Warner Bros., Google, Red Bull, EBay, Fendi, Ballentine and Mercedes-Benz. Asked how his Pop Art brushwork yields such eye-popping effects, Vides offers a deceptively unremarkable reply: “I think it’s the simplicity of it. Some of the most beautiful things in the world are the simplest ideas.” Joshua Vides is an...
    A rare albino dachshund who struggled to find his forever home is now living his best life - and even has his own Instagram account. Eight-year-old Duke, who lives in Texas with adoring owner Mercedes Andrade, a 38-year-old accountant, is all white with a pink nose and light blue eyes.  As well as his unusual complexion, the hound's condition means he is partially deaf and blind. He is extremely sensitive to sunlight and has to wear a hat and sunscreen, and also has a dilated cardiomyopathy, which means his heart is bigger than normal. But despite his problems, Duke leads a fun-filled life and Mercedes, who took him on in 2013, says it was love at first sight.

    Chicago White Sox slugger Yermin Mercedes hinted he could be headed to Japan in the next chapter of his baseball career. Earlier this season, Mercedes also hinted at retirement on instagram, and then took back that sentiment. So, really, what do we know? Mercedes has supporters in the White Sox organization, so it’s unlikely they’ll let him play in Japan without a fight or counteroffer of some sort. When Mercedes flirted with retirement, Tony La Russa was among the first to reach out and try to persuade that young slugger to reconsider. “As you probably know, if you are paying attention, several times he said how close we are. He knows I’m a supporter of his. So I’ll reach out to him and see what’s going on. It could be he’s just feeling frustrated. I’ll try to explain to him he’s got a big league future,” La Russa said at the time.Chicago White Sox: Yermin Mercedes hints at stint in JapanYermin Mercedes heading to Japan?.

    After a hot start, Yermin Mercedes has been sent down to the minor leagues. In a motivational Instagram story in response to the news, Mercedes appeared to channel 9/11. Mercedes has been ice cold of late, which explains the White Sox decision to send him down to the minors to retool his swing. At this juncture, he’s hurting the Sox far more than he’s helping them.

The 28-year-old slashed .368/.417/.571 through the first 38 games of the season, but has since come to a screeching halt production-wise.

    Yermin Mercedes’ storybook season got even better with a walk-off hit for the Chicago White Sox to beat the Detroit Tigers. The start to Mercedes’ season was downright historic, then he rapidly crashed back down to Earth. Yet, through 184 at-bats, Mercedes is hitting .299 with seven home runs and 30 RBIs. Perhaps even more impressive than Mercedes first two months of the season is how he’s dealt with controversy. Mercedes broke the “unwritten rules” of baseball in May, and was called out by his own manager, Tony La Russa. Whether La Russa’s tactics were warranted is debatable, but Mercedes has bounced back considerably since then, and handled the media with class.

    Chicago White Sox rookie Yermin Mercedes showed on Thursday that he loves swinging on 3-0 pitches. Chicago White Sox rookie Yermin Mercedes was in the news recently for hitting a home run on a 3-0 count during a blowout against the Minnesota Twins. That caught the ire of his own manager Tony La Russa, who gave his best Abraham Simpson “old man yells at cloud” impression following the game, citing that he told him not to swing at the pitch when the team had an 11-run lead. Nearly two weeks since this occurrence, Mercedes swung at another 3-0 pitch. During the bottom of the second inning of Thursday’s game against the Baltimore Orioles, Mercedes took a 3-0 pitch from pitcher Bruce Zimmerman and crushed it towards the left field stands to give the White Sox an early 1-0 lead. The Yerminator loves swinging on 3-0 ????

    Tony La Russa had high praise for Andrew Vaughn, which also doubled as a thinly veiled shot at some other White Sox players.  How long would it take before Tony La Russa and the White Sox encountered clubhouse culture issues? If you had ‘less than two full months’ on your bingo card congratulations, you just won. La Russa clearly has a plan to take one of the most fun teams in baseball and rip that from them like Thanos tearing the mind stone out of Vision’s head in Infinity War. That’s not what we all envisioned the future of baseball on the South Side would be, but that’s what happens when the oldest manager in baseball is in charge of putting his the way things used to be stamp on one of the league’s youngest rosters.
    Fans of the Chicago White Sox had a lot of things to say about manager Tony La Russa after being swept by the New York Yankees and none of them were nice. White Sox fans are well and truly fed up with Tony La Russa. 1-4 since Tony La Russa put down Yermin Mercedes and also told one of his best pitchers that is why he has a locker, and he has an office.

    In what could’ve been a very scary moment for a Chicago White Sox team already dealing with injuries, Yermin Mercedes is okay after ducking directly into a curveball. Looping breaking pitch or not, taking a 75 MPH plus pitch to the head is a painful experience. It’s been a brutal week for Yermin Mercedes. First, the young slugger got in a classic baseball debate about the unwritten rules of the game. Mercedes dared to swing at a batting practice fastball from a position player on a 3-0 count in a blowout, hitting it to the parking lot in the process. The White Sox opponent, the Twins, were not happy about it. Neither was Mercedes’ own manager, Tony La Russa. Mercedes took his payback a day later via a pitch thrown behind him by Twins reliever Tyler Duffey.White Sox: Yermin Mercedes stays in the game after getting hit by pitchMercedes did not leave the game, but he did look shaken up after the play.

    When White Sox outfielder Eloy Jimenez crashed into the wall and needed to be helped off the field by trainers, there was an eerie silence that blanketed the south side of Chicago in late March. This was supposed to be the White Sox’s year. They had the power, the speed, the defense and the pitching, both on the front end and in the bullpen. Dreams of a World Series championship were, once again, becoming a reality. When the diagnosis of a torn pectoral muscle that would require surgery with a six-month recovery period came through, all hope seemed lost. How do you replace that kind of power? Like a knight in shining armor, Yermin Mercedes came to the rescue. The 28-year-old career minor leaguer, in grandiose fashion, opened the season with a six-game hitting streak with three doubles, two home runs and seven RBIs — including a record-breaking eight hits in his first eight at-bats. Obviously, the loss of Jimenez still hurt, but the pain subsided as Mercedes closed out April with a .415 average then proceeded to maintain a...
    Chicago White Sox manager Tony La Russa. Ron Vesely/Getty Images Yankees great CC Sabathia called out White Sox manager Tony La Russa. La Russa has been criticized valuing baseball's "unwritten rules" over his own players. "This s--- is terrible," Sabathia said. "He shouldn't be f------ managing that team." Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Chicago White Sox manager Tony La Russa was called out by former Yankees ace CC Sabathia for his failure to stick up for his player. "This s--- is terrible. He shouldn't be f------ managing that team," Sabathia said of La Russa during an episode of his podcast. "If you not going to step up and have your players' backs, what's the point of being the f------ manager of the White Sox?" Sabathia was referring to an incident on Monday night following a home run from White Sox rookie Yermin Mercedes. Because of the situation in the game at the time, some were not happy with Mercedes' swing. At the time, the White Sox were already leading 15-4 in the top of the ninth,...
    Minnesota Twins pitcher Tyler Duffey and manager Rocco Baldelli were disciplined Thursday after the reliever threw behind Chicago White Sox slugger Yermin Mercedes in retaliation for a ninth-inning home run during a blowout a game prior. The saga began Monday when Mercedes hit a home run on a 3-0 pitch off a position player in the ninth inning as the White Sox were up 11 runs. Mercedes received backlash from his own manager, Tony La Russa, who was more concerned about respecting the game. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM On Tuesday, Duffey threw at Mercedes' legs, just missing him by inches. Duffey was ejected from the game as was Baldelli who came out to argue. La Russa said after the game he didn’t have a problem with an opposing pitcher throwing at one of his players. On Thursday, MLB handed down suspensions for Duffey and Baldelli.

    (CNN)Imagine you went to work one day, did a terrific job, and your boss then publicly excoriated you, promised that you'd be punished and later applauded the way another person in the industry tried to commit actual physical violence against you. Scott JenningsYou might be Mike Pence last January. Or this week you might be Yermín Mercedes, rookie sensation for the Chicago White Sox. They call him "The Yerminator" for the way he's hitting this year -- a .368 batting average (tops in the American League) with six home runs and an electric style that has Chicago fans excited for their first-place team. On Monday night, the Sox were clobbering division rival Minnesota, 15-4. Late in the game, the Twins did the baseball equivalent of giving up by putting in position player Willians Astudillo to pitch the final inning. (Astudillo is amusingly nicknamed "La Tortuga" -- the turtle -- because he's a little shorter, girthier and slower than the average Major Leaguer.) Baseball teams do this kind of switch to acknowledge they have lost the game and don't wish to...

    Yankees manager Aaron Boone proposed a simple and effective solution to White Sox DH Yermin Mercedes’ violation of the unwritten rules of baseball. The unwritten rules of baseball have been the talk of the sport ever since White Sox DH Yermin Mercedes blasted a 3-0 pitch out of the park in the ninth inning against the Twins. Would it really be so different to let teams end a game in the seventh if the deficit is that large? Is it worse than watching teams essentially concede by putting position players on the mound to save their bullpen for a later date? It would just take MLB admitting what’s what instead of living by unwritten rules. Next: Gerrit Coles Sets Another Impressive Record
    Tony La Russa and Yermin Mercedes have a lot in common. They both got it wrong in the latest Chicago White Sox kerfuffle. Tony La Russa is the manager of the Chicago White Sox. Yermin Mercedes is a player on the team. They also remain in first place in managerial drama. Maybe it all won’t matter because they are just that talented, but it’s unnecessary. This latest episode only taught us one thing. It’s possible for everyone to be wrong. Next: Tony La Russa’s inflammatory comments on Yermin Mercedes should be a fireable offense
    Chicago White Sox manager Tony La Russa isn’t worried about losing the locker room over his handling of the Yermin Mercedes situation. Is Tony La Russa in danger of losing the locker room in Chicago after publicly criticizing Yermin Mercedes for breaking unwritten rules? La Russa outed himself as someone who won’t always go to bat for his players. Even if he didn’t like Mercedes’ approach, the fact that he addressed it publicly isn’t likely to sit well with the guys in the locker room. It may not be a problem at this point, with Chicago leading the American League with a 26-16 record. If cracks start to show as the season progresses, this will be a week to look back on.

In the days after manager Tony La Russa ripped his own player, Yermin Mercedes, for swinging on a 3-0 pitch he was told to take while up 15-4 and hitting a home run, the 76-year-old doubled down on his stance against breaking baseball’s “unwritten rules.” “Do you think you need more [runs] to win, you keep pushing,” he said, via Bob Nightengale. “If you think you have enough, respect the game and opposition.

    Chicago White Sox manager Tony La Russa stayed strong Wednesday when he was pressed about comments regarding Yermin Mercedes and the so-called unwritten rules of baseball. La Russa, the 76-year-old Hall of Famer, came under fire for chastising Mercedes for hitting a home run in the ninth inning on a 3-0 count during a blowout win Monday against the Minnesota Twins. When Mercedes was thrown at during Tuesday night’s game, La Russa brushed it off.

Baseball’s unwritten rules remain that way because if you actually write them out, you’d see how stupid they are. And Tony La Russa just sided with them over his own player. Good job skip. Think about this...La Russa is ok with Yermín Mercedes being thrown at by the other team, but not with him hitting a home run. I don’t care how many runs the White Sox were up, or if it were me throwing the pitch, there’s no universe where that makes sense. He also called Mercedes clueless when he’s the one who recently admitted he didn’t know an actual rule.
