During the game with Houston yesterday the White Sox did something that not a lot of teams have done, in the same game.
A Triple Play and a Grand Slam.
May 18, 2016 and July 8 2016 was the last time the Sox turned a triple play, let alone 2 in the same year.
Charlie Tilsons 1st Grand Slam of his career came in the top of the 6th inning.
The Sox are only the 4th team in the last 40 years to do this.
The Sox are currently 22 wins with 26 losses, 10.5 games out. A year ago we were 15 win with 31 losses, 13 games out.
Carlos Rodon will have Tommy John surgery later this week. His return will be set to this surgery date. Hoping he will be back for the second part of 2020.
Micker Adolfo undergo arthroscopic surgery on his elbow, is expected to be ready for the 2020 season.
Nate Jones had his flexor mass tear repaired today, he is out for the rest of the season.
Eloy Jiménez is off to Charlotte to begin a rehab assignment starting tomorrow.
Still no word on if Manny Machado or Bryce Harper have signed with the Sox, let alone anyone.
The trucks were packed late last week and are on the way to the ranch. Pitchers and Catchers report on the 13th.
Harold Baines has been inducted into the Hall of Fame.
A Season With the White Sox would like to offer our condolences to Ron Kittle on the passing of his Mom.
The very best news came yesterday
DANNY HAS GONE HOME!
He was discharged from the hospital and will continue to recover at home.
Danny won’t return to the office again this season.
No news what will happen with Danny next season but from what I read he really wants to pitch again.
Only time will tell.
You can still send get well notes, just drop them off at the field or address them to Danny in care of the White Sox
It’s a good news , Sad news post
Danny has been up taking short walks with his wife.
Ricky Renteria’s Mom, Angela passed away. He will be away Friday and Saturday to attend the funeral and will rejoin the team on Sunday.
Our sympathies go out to Ricky and his family during this time.
My understanding is Danny had a procedure on Saturday but he is listed as critical but stable.
Danny was able to visit with his Dad. He is able to respond to questions and he is able to use his extremities.
Danny was also able to hold a base-ball like he was going to throw a pitch. (Danny has been moved to the 60 day disabled list)
If you would like to send a get well card you can drop it by or send it to care of the White Sox and they will make sure that Danny and his family receive them.

Continue to pray and positive thoughts, its a long road we still have to travel.
To Toronto to be exact. I was not sure what to expect on this part of the trip. The boys have been playing better than a lot of people expected but when you wake up to the news its 7 to 0 in the second inning in the Sox favor, trust me, you pay attention.
