Gavin Sheets

Gavin Sheets has been amazing since coming back to White Sox

It is no secret the 2022 Chicago White Sox are struggling offensively. A lineup once thought to not give one break to the pitcher now has several holes. A specific role absent from the lineup was a left-handed slugger who drives in runs. When the White Sox needed him most, the lefty slugger Gavin Sheets put up a .587 OPS.

Gavin Sheets being sent to AAA is a good thing for everyone

The Chicago White Sox made a move this Friday before their game with the Texas Rangers sending outfielder Gavin Sheets down to AAA Charlotte. This move shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone as Sheets’ play has been less than stellar so far in 2022. He hasn’t been living up to expectations this season, so something had to be done.

Did Guardians commentator Rick Manning actually say ‘Are you shitting me’ on a Gavin Sheets error?

The Cleveland Guardians got into the lead in a rather inauspicious way. A Gavin Sheets error in the top of the first scored Steven Kwan and put Cleveland up 1-0. It wouldn’t be a surprise for the Guardians commentary team to be somewhat bewildered by what they saw. Matt Underwood and Rick Manning were certainly surprised and it very much sounded like Manning let out an “Are you shitting me?” live on the air.

White Sox's Gavin Sheets: Goes yard again

Sheets went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run Tuesday against the Guardians. Sheets took Cal Quantrill yard in the sixth inning to record his third home run of the season and second in as many games. His power surge is coming at the right time, as Andrew Vaughn (hand) began a rehab assignment Tuesday, which could result in some lost playing time for Sheets. However, he's made plenty of contact early -- he's striking out at a 21.2 percent rate -- so there is room for his .213/.263/.360 line to improve.
