5/23/2018 @ CINCINNATI  
CHI WHITE SOX: 2017: 67-95, fourth place.
MANAGER: Rick Renteria (second season).
ADDITIONS: RHP Miguel Gonzalez, C Welington Castillo.
SUBTRACTIONS: LHP Derek Holland, RHP Mike Pelfrey, RHP Al Alburquerque, RHP Jake Petricka, C Geovany Soto, OF-2B Alen Hanson, RHP Zach Putnam.
OUTLOOK: For a team with five straight losing seasons and a record that ranked among baseball's worst last year, the White Sox are generating plenty of buzz. That's because they're loaded with promising young players after going all-in on a rebuild prior to last season. The moves have sparked a belief that better days are ahead. Moncada and hard-throwing pitchers Giolito and Lopez showed promise in the majors last season. Right-hander Michael Kopech, outfielder Eloy Jimenez and outfielder Luis Robert are elite prospects on their way in the minors. Garcia, coming off a breakout season, is looking to prove he's not a one-hit wonder. Anderson hopes to bounce back from a trying season in which a close friend was shot to death. Abreu is back after the slugger was viewed as a potential trade candidate this winter. Left-hander Carlos Rodon is expected to be out until at least June following shoulder surgery last September. It's not clear when he'll be ready. Rodon also was sidelined at the start a year ago because of shoulder and biceps problems. The big question is whether he'll ever develop into the pitcher the White Sox envisioned when they drafted him with the No. 3 overall pick in 2014.
PITTSBURGH: 2017 75-87, fourth place
MANAGER Clint Hurdle (seventh season)
ADDITIONS: OF Corey Dickerson, LHP Kyle Crick, RHP Joe Musgrove, RHP Michael Feliz, 3B Colin Moran
SUBTRACTIONS: CF Andrew McCutchen, RHP Gerrit Cole, RHP Daniel Hudson, C Chris Stewart, 1B John Jaso, RHP Joaquin Benoit
OUTLOOK: General Manager Neal Huntington insists the Pirates are not rebuilding, but it certainly looks that way after they flipped franchise cornerstones McCutchen and Cole for less expensive and less proven talent. The Pirates did nothing in free agency, though they were able to grab Dickerson -- an All-Star for Tampa Bay last season -- in February. Dickerson's arrival gives Pittsburgh some stability in the outfield, but the Pirates still have some serious power issues outside of Bell, who finished third in NL Rookie of the Year voting. Pittsburgh finished 29th in the majors in home runs in 2017, and while McCutchen and Dickerson's numbers are comparable, the rest of the lineup isn't exactly imposing. If Marte can put his suspension-marred 2017 behind him, if Polanco and his hamstrings can stay healthy, if Moran proves he can do more than spell Freese at third, and if Taillon, Kuhl and Williams all improve, Pittsburgh could be competitive. That's a lot of "ifs," probably a few too many.
Pirates aim for season sweep over White Sox

The starters for Wednesday's second game of a short interleague series and final meeting of the season between the Pittsburgh Pirates and Chicago White Sox weren't set until Tuesday.

Pittsburgh right-hander Jameson Taillon (2-3, 4.08 ERA) is scheduled to face White Sox left-hander Hector Santiago (0-1, 5.60 ERA).


Taillon became questionable when he left his last start, Friday against San Francisco, after three innings because of a cut on the middle finger of his right hand, but manager Clint Hurdle said Taillon will be OK to go.

Santiago was pegged to make his third start, 12th appearance, when Chicago decided to push Carson Fulmer's start back to Friday against Texas at home to give him a full week off after he has struggled.

The Pirates (24-17) recorded their major-league-leading seventh shutout Tuesday with a 7-0 win over the White Sox (10-28).

The teams had a two-game set last week in Chicago, and Pittsburgh came back from four-run deficits both times to sweep the short series.

The Pirates will go for a sweep of this two-game set and all four games between the interleague clubs Wednesday.

Pittsburgh has won six of seven overall, totaling 49 runs in the six wins. The Pirates had 10 hits Tuesday.

"One through nine, we're all doing damage," said Pittsburgh's Josh Bell, who drove in three runs with two doubles. "A lot of fun baseball right now."

Pittsburgh center fielder Starling Marte (right side discomfort) and catcher Francisco Cervelli (hit by a pitch in the right forearm) left Tuesday's game. There was no update on their status.

Chicago did not get a boost from the return of leadoff man Yoan Moncada, who was reinstated from the 10-day disabled list after recovering from a tight left hamstring. He was 1-for-4.

Santiago pitched one inning in relief in that two-game series last week, allowing no hits and striking out one. His only other career appearance against the Pirates was a start in 2016, when he gave up four hits and three runs in four innings and did not get a decision.

In his last start, May 5 against Minnesota in an 8-4 loss, he allowed all eight runs in 3 1/3 innings, yielding six hits and six costly walks, while striking out two.

"I pulled a lot of fastballs, which is weird for me because usually if I miss then I'm missing up and away or up and in to a lefty," Santiago said. "So little different kind of scenario there. I was trying to figure out which way to go, trying to make that adjustment, and I just never figured that out.

"I went back and looked at it. Velocity was there, which hasn't been that good in a while. Probably felt too good."

Fulmer was given extra rest after compiling a 6.23 ERA and 1.75 WHIP in 30 1/3 innings that include eight starts and one relief appearance. His last time out, he gave up five runs in 1 2/3 innings, including a grand slam, Friday against the Cubs.

For Taillon, the laceration on his finger is just his latest hiccup.

"It's tough in the short term to come out of a game, but, hopefully, by coming out when I did, we've kind of mitigated it. ... Hopefully we caught it early enough to where it won't bother me for the rest of the year or anything," Taillon said.

Taillon, who has never faced the White Sox, pitched three scoreless innings with five strikeouts against the Giants before he had to leave. It might have otherwise been a game that indicated he had gotten back on track after struggling following a one-hit shutout with seven strikeouts April 8 in a 5-0 win over Cincinnati.

He is 0-3 in six ensuing starts, including giving up a season-high seven runs in 3 2/3 innings April 25 against Detroit.
