Danny Mendick


Danny Mendick makes himself available for best opportunity yet

Up until Nick Madrigal’s injury, Danny Mendick was caught in an awkward professional space as the last man on the roster of a successful team. He’s a fringe major leaguer who could really use a couple hundred plate appearances in a season, which would at least allow him the opportunity to say he got a chance. It’s just that those opportunities are best afforded by the Tigers, or Pirates, or what the White Sox used to be, because those teams are in a better position to appreciate what he can do. For instance, his strong defense might help a straggler lessen its chances of being outright mocked.

Danny Mendick crushes grand slam in offensive onslaught on Twins (Video)

Chicago White Sox infielder Danny Mendick extended the team’s lead over the Minnesota Twins with a grand slam during Monday’s game. The Chicago White Sox were coming off a memorable end to their series against the Kansas City Royals that ended in walk-off fashion. But entering their three-game set against the Minnesota Twins, they were without first baseman and reigning AL MVP Jose Abreu due to an ankle injury. Even without him, the White Sox still had plenty of power in the batter’s box.

White Sox's Danny Mendick: Swats second homer

Mendick went 1-for-4 with a walk, a home run and five RBI in Monday's 16-4 rout of the Twins. His fifth-inning grand slam off Derek Law got the White Sox to double-digit runs on the night. Mendick was just 2-for-14 in May coming into Monday, although one of the knocks was his other homer of the year, but his versatility should continue to get him semi-regular playing time as the team tries to piece together a roster currently missing four key contributors.

White Sox's Danny Mendick: Makes second start in RF

Mendick went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in Sunday's 9-3 win over the Royals. Mendick, an infielder by trade, started in right field for a second straight day and knocked in three runs in the weekend games. Adam Eaton, the White Sox's primary right fielder, took a seat against two left-handers. It's unclear if there will be a platoon going forward, or if manager Tony La Russa was being overly cautious with Eaton, who was recently nagged by knee and hamstring issues. With an off-day Monday, Eaton will have three full days of rest before Chicago kicks off a series Tuesday at home against the Twins.
