Tyler Saladino Headshot

Saladino (back) was placed on the 10-day DL on Saturday, Scott Merkin of reports.

He left Friday's game with back spasms after being hampered by back pain for over a week, and the White Sox will finally opt to shut him down for an extended period. Adam Engel was promoted from Triple-A as a corresponding move.

Ian Kinsler Headshot

Kinsler was placed on the 10-day DL on Saturday with a left hamstring strain.

He has already missed eight games this month with hamstring issues, and will finally sit for an extended period of time to try to overcome the ailment. Andrew Romine and Dixon Machado figure to see time at the keystone in the short term.

Yasmani Grandal Headshot

Grandal went 1-for-3 with an RBI double and a walk in Friday's 4-0 win over the Cubs.

Grandal's sixth-inning two-bagger drove home Corey Seager in the fourth and was the slugging backstop's 16th RBI of May. The 28-year-old has been knocking the cover off the ball during the month, as Friday's production brought his May line to .362/.405/.594. He's been making impactful contact as well, with Friday's double representing his 12th extra-base hit of the month.

Jason Castro Headshot

Castro is out of Saturday's lineup against the Rays, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

He is hitting .208 with one home run in 48 at-bats in May. Chris Gimenez will get the start at catcher and hit seventh.
11:32 am (EST)
Adrián González Headshot

Gonzalez went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Friday's 4-0 win over the Cubs.

Gonzalez has now hit safely in five of seven games since coming off a 12-game disabled list stint with back and elbow injuries, and Friday's homer was his first of the season overall. The veteran has plenty of ground to make up in that department, as he's hit no less than 18 round trippers in any of his previous five seasons. He has been putting good wood on the ball in the seven games since returning, as he's sporting a 28.6 percent line drive rate and 33.3 percent hard contact rate over that span.
11:31 am (EST)
Jorge Polanco Headshot

Polanco is out of Saturday's lineup against the Rays, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

He is hitting .239/.280/.391 over his last 12 games, but has still earned the starting nod in each of the previous four contests. Ehire Adrianza will start at shortstop and hit ninth in his stead.
11:31 am (EST)
Byron Buxton Headshot

Buxton is out of Saturday's lineup against the Rays, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

He is hitting .175/.267/.250 with a 34.8 percent strikeout rate over his last 40 at-bats, and has yet to emerge from his awful funk at the plate. Max Kepler will slide over to center field and hit cleanup while Robbie Grossman joins the fray in right field.
11:29 am (EST)
Grégory Polanco Headshot

Polanco is batting .351 in his last 37 at-bats after collecting a pair of hits in his return from the disabled list Friday.

He makes for an intriguing buy-low pick, considering his overall numbers (.260/.341/.398) have disappointed fantasy owners. Polanco struggled in right field Friday, misplaying one ball off the fence while losing another hit in the lights, but he's regained his cleanup spot in the batting order. With Adam Frazier and Josh Harrison producing atop the lineup, Polanco seems primed to go on a nice offensive run.
11:27 am (EST)
Miguel Sano Headshot

Sano is out of Saturday's lineup against the Rays, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

The hulking third baseman has been striking out at a 54.1 percent clip over his last eight games, fanning 10 times in his last three games alone. He will get a chance to clear his head with Eduardo Escobar taking over at third base and hitting sixth.
11:26 am (EST)
Tomas Nosek Headshot

Nosek stands the best chance among Red Wings prospects of making the team next season, opines Ansar Khan of

Not only is Nosek is on the verge of becoming an NHL regular by virtue of his solid play -- he capped off the 2016-17 campaign with AHL Grand Rapids after turning in 41 points (15 goals, 26 assists) in 51 games -- but the undrafted pivot is no longer exempt from waivers, and that's a key consideration for GM Ken Holland as he sorts through similarly talented prospects in Tyler Bertuzzi and Evgeny Svechnikov. Still, even if Nosek secures a job at hockey's highest level, it may take awhile for him to flourish; he's scored one goal for his lone point in 17 career games with Detroit.
