Jose Abreu's second All-Star Game appearance has a different feel for the White Sox first baseman.
The Royals ended the first half on a high note on Sunday afternoon with a decisive win over the White Sox at Guaranteed Rate Field. Daniel Palka gave Lucas Giolito an early lead when he belted a two-run homer in the first inning. With multiple injuries in the rotation, Kansas City rolled out five relievers in the first-half finale. Giolito ran with the early advantage and finished with six strikeouts in 6 1/3 scoreless innings. Yoan Moncada, who finished a triple short of the cycle, opened the fifth with a homer, part of a five-run frame that broke open the game for Chicago.

There's a very good chance James Shields will start one of the first three White Sox games in Seattle post All-Star break next weekend. The veteran right-hander most likely will take the mound to open the series Friday.
Ozzie Guillen was one of the numerous players from the 1993 American League West champion White Sox honored on the field prior to Saturday's game with Kansas City. It was a team featuring three eventual Hall of Famers in Frank Thomas, Tim Raines and Carlton Fisk, and two eventual White Sox managers in third baseman Robin Ventura and Guillen, who led one of the more underrated World Series Champions in '05.
Reynaldo Lopez didn't know what to expect prior to his Saturday afternoon start during a 5-0 White Sox loss to the Royals at Guaranteed Rate Field. At 5 p.m. CT on Friday, the 24-year-old became a father for the first time when his wife, Jhilaris, gave birth to their daughter Zoe. Lopez got plenty of sleep Friday and confirmed his readiness to White Sox manager Rick Renteria via text, but he still wasn't sure how he would perform.
Frank Thomas has witnessed the recent upward Hall of Fame voting movement of players accused of using performance enhancing drugs, or players who actually violated that policy.

The sixth inning of the White Sox 14-2 loss to the Cardinals on Tuesday night at Guaranteed Rate Field essentially summed up Chicago's six-game losing streak and 2-10 stretch. Actually, it spoke volumes to its disappointing 30-61 record in Year 2 of its rebuild.

Will the White Sox trade Avisail Garcia? What about Jose Abreu? Beat reporter Scott Merkin answers these questions and more in this week's Inbox.
Jose Abreu, the White Sox heart and soul and top overall player, was chosen by fans as the American League's starting first baseman, as announced Sunday night, marking Abreu's second All-Star appearance and first since his AL Rookie of the Year campaign in 2014. Abreu became the first White Sox player to lead at any point in the balloting process since Frank Thomas won the fan election at first base in 1996.
Of the first eight pitches thrown by White Sox starter Lucas Giolito against the Astros on Sunday, seven missed the strike zone. But Giolito escaped the first unscathed and was virtually unhittable the rest of the way. In fact, two of the three hits Giolito allowed in his 7 1/3 innings led directly to runs in Houston's 2-1 victory to complete a four-game sweep of the White Sox at Minute Maid Park.
With Houston southpaw Dallas Keuchel on the mound Sunday, Yoan Moncada moved from his usual leadoff spot to seventh in the White Sox lineup. That drop has become customary in this situation for the switch-hitter, who has a slash line of .153/.215/.236 from the right side this season.
The White Sox managed to score five runs off of Charlie Morton during a 12-6 setback against the Astros on Saturday afternoon at Minute Maid Park. That's the good news for the South Siders, who got to a Houston starter for the first time in three days. But on a day where James Shields wasn't as steady as he had been over his past 14 starts, five runs was not enough.
Top young White Sox players, such as second baseman Yoan Moncada and right-handed pitchers Lucas Giolito and Carson Fulmer, have produced less-than-stellar or less-than-expected overall individual results during the course of the 2018 season. But in some ways, this short-term failure and, more important, how these key future components handle said failure becomes a crucial part of the rebuild process.
Here's MLB Pipeline's roundup of the top prospect performances in the Minor Leagues on Saturday.
Lance McCullers Jr. no-hit the White Sox for 5 1/3 innings and set a career high with 12 strikeouts during Houston's 11-4 victory Friday night at Minute Maid Park. The White Sox dropped to 30-58, for a season low 28 games under .500, and fell to 0-5 against the Astros, being outscored 42-9 during those contests.
Right-handed pitcher Dylan Cease and outfielder Luis Alexander Basabe have been selected to participate in the 2018 SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game, which will be played at 3 p.m. CT on Sunday, July 15, at Nationals Park in Washington, DC. Cease, the No. 4 White Sox prospect, per MLB Pipeline, will be play for the U.S. team. Basabe, the No. 13 White Sox prospect, will suit up for the World Team.
Here's MLB Pipeline's roundup of the top prospect performances in the Minor Leagues on Friday.
Justin Verlander looked dominant for most of his start during Thursday's series opener between the Astros and White Sox at Minute Maid Park. White Sox starter Carlos Rodon was effectively wild. But neither pitcher factored in the 4-3 Astros victory, a game decided by two runs scored off of Joakim Soria in the ninth.
The Chicago White Sox have signed infielder Nick Madrigal, their first-round pick (No. 4 overall) in the 2018 MLB Draft, to a Minor League contract with a $6,411,400 signing bonus.
