Chicago White Sox: Adam Engel’s injury is another tough one

It has been a rough ride for the Chicago White Sox in 2021. Their record is magnificent but it looks even better when you consider all of the missing parts due to injury. Eloy Jimenez has missed the entire season so far, Luis Robert has been gone for months, and guys like Michael Kopech, Nick Madrigal, Lance Lynn, Billy Hamilton, Adam Eaton and Tim Anderson have all spent time on the IL.

Giolito deals in loss: 'It's a wake-up call'

Despite a solid performance from Lucas Giolito, the White Sox struggles continued as they dropped their fifth straight in a 6-3 loss to the Pirates on Tuesday at PNC Park. “Tough little stretch, but I think that it's just kind of like a test right now,” said Giolito. “Rough series and we dropped this first game.
