Chicago White Sox Player News: All Positions

News: Lopez was pulled from his start Sunday against the Rangers after five innings due to dehydration and flu-like symptoms.
Impact: Lopez may have been pitching under the weather, but it certainly didn't show based on his results. He tossed 80 pitches across five no-hit frames, issuing only two walks and striking out six in the outing. Reliever Aaron Bummer squandered the no-hitter the following inning, but Lopez's outing was an encouraging step forward after he yielded eight total runs en route to taking losses his last two times out. Lopez will likely be close to full strength and ready to roll when his next turn through the rotation comes up next weekend in Atlanta.
News: Engel will start in center field and bat eighth Sunday against the Rangers.
Impact: A uptick in recent matchups versus left-handed pitching coupled with Eloy Jimenez's brief absence due to a hip injury have opened up extra room in the outfield for Engel lately. He'll make a fifth straight start Sunday but should be limited to a short-side platoon role moving forward now that Jimenez is healthy again.
News: Skole is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rangers.
Impact: The lefty-hitting Skole will bow out of the lineup for a second straight day with the Rangers bringing southpaw Brock Burke to the hill for the series finale. Eloy Jimenez will fill Skole's usual spot as Chicago's designated hitter.
News: McCann is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rangers.
Impact: McCann will essentially get two days off with the White Sox off the schedule Monday before returning to action Tuesday against the Twins. Welington Castillo will check in behind the plate in place of McCann, who went 0-for-8 with four strikeouts in the previous two contests.
News: The White Sox reinstated Fry (personal) from the paternity list Sunday.
Impact: Fellow reliever Jose Ruiz was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte following Saturday's 4-0 loss to the Rangers to open up a spot on the active roster for Fry. The lefty was only away from the team for two days and should be available out of the bullpen for Sunday's series finale with Texas.
News: Abreu went 2-for-4 in Saturday's 4-0 loss to the White Sox.
Impact: Abreu's first-inning single extended his hitting streak to six games and was his 1,000th career hit. The 32-year-old is having a monster August, slashing .344/.387/.604 with six home runs, seven doubles, 17 runs and 24 RBI over 24 games.
News: Jimenez returned to the lineup Saturday and went 1-for-4 in a 4-0 loss to the Rangers.
Impact: Jimenez was eased back into the lineup, serving as the designated hitter after missing two games due to hip soreness.
News: Ruiz was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte after Saturday's game against the Rangers.
Impact: Ruiz was just called up from Triple-A on Friday, and he delivered 1.1 scoreless innings with four strikeouts in Saturday's contest. The 24-year-old has a 5.24 ERA and a 32:22 K:BB over 33 major-league innings this season.
News: Nova (9-10) took the loss Saturday, giving up two runs (one earned) on six hits while striking out six over 5.2 innings as the White Sox fell 4-0 to the Rangers.
Impact: The right-hander was locked in a duel with Kolby Allard through five innings, but after a Tim Anderson error put Elvis Andrus on with one out in the sixth, Nova served up a homer to Willie Calhoun that broke open the scoreless tie and ended his winning streak at five. Nova still has a 0.94 ERA and 25:7 K:BB in 48 innings over his last seven starts, but he'll face a tough test in his next outing Friday in Atlanta.
News: Skole is not in the starting lineup Saturday against the Rangers.
Impact: Eloy Jimenez will serve as the designated hitter and bat fifth against left-hander Kolby Allard. Skole is just 3-for-18 with five strikeouts in his last six starts. The left-handed DH has one hit in six at-bats against southpaws.
News: Jiminez returns to the lineup Saturday against the Rangers after having missed the past two games with hip soreness.
Impact: The rookie outfielder will serve as the designated hitter and bat fifth against left-hander Kolby Allard. Jimenez is slashing .267/.292/.500 with five home runs, 13 RBI and 11 runs scored in 21 August games. The right-handed power hitter has homered 22 times in his first 91 big-league games.
