Lucas Giolito had four quality starts, a 1.71 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, 8.7 percent walk and 22.0 percent strikeout rate in his past four starts for Triple-A Charlotte. It's not the easiest remaining schedule for White Sox pitchers -- lots of Indians, Royals, Tigers and some Astros -- but this is still a front-of-rotation prospect worth adding in 12-plus-team mixed leagues.

Pair of Braves highlight Thursday's longest HRs

Ian Happ may have hit a 443-foot home run, but the rookie was overshadowed by Freddie Freeman and Ender Inciarte, who each hit home runs more than 430 feet in the Braves' 10-4 win against the Rockies.

Lopez exits with injury

White Sox RHP Reynaldo Lopez left Thursday's start vs. the Rangers with soreness on his right side. The 23-year-old allowed six runs (five earned) on five hits, walked four and struck out six prior to departing in the fifth inning. Lopez now owns a 6.10 ERA in two starts since Chicago called him up from Triple-A earlier this month.

Covey returns for White Sox

The White Sox activated RHP Dylan Covey (oblique) from the 10-day disabled list. The Rule 5 pick has been out since late May and owns an 8.12 ERA across eight previous starts this season. He'll take Tyler Clippard's spot on the active roster.

Olney: Jose Abreu wasn't traded, so what's next?

GM Rick Hahn has seemingly timed many of his recent trades to near perfection, getting high-end prospects in return. Perhaps the best window to deal Abreu will be this winter.

The Royals' weekend teetered on the brink of disaster but after a 14-6 romp over the White Sox on Sunday, Kansas City heads for O'Hare International Airport in a much cheerier mood than they might have. Whit Merrifield drove in five runs and finished a double shy of the cycle to lead KC's 16-hit attack. The Royals took two of three in Chicago, taking Saturday's game 5-4 when Melky Cabrera hit a clutch two-run homer as KC snapped a five-game skid. Ned Yost hoped the comeback might spark his club and if Sunday's outburst was any evidence, it has. Now back over the .500 mark, the Royals head for Oakland to play the A's.

Not to put too fine a point on it, but when you've walked Royals SS Alcides Escobar twice in a game, your pitching staff may not be functioning in an optimal fashion. Escobar has indeed walked twice today against the White Sox. He hadn't drawn a walk since July 19 and still has just 11 walks in 469 plate appearances this season. Escobar had not walked twice in a game since Aug. 10 of last season.

With the White Sox focused squarely on the future, these are the kind of tidbits their fans love to see: Rookie Nicky Delmonico just walked and has now reached base in his first 12 games with Chicago. Per Elias, that's a franchise record. No one else has had more than 10.

Wow. It's one thing to miss the cut-off man. It's whole other thing to miss the cut-off man when there isn't even a runner trying to advance. With runners on first and second, Kansas City's Drew Butera hit a sharp single to left, scooped up by White Sox LF Leury Garcia. The runners were content to move up one base apiece, but Garcia uncorked a throw over the heads of the cut-off guy and catcher Kevan Smith. Cheslor Cuthbert raced home and the Royals grabbed an early 1-0 lead in Chicago. It's now 3-0 after a two-run single from Lorenzo Cain.
