Sheets homers, doubles late to lift White Sox over A's 3-2 originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago. Gavin Sheets hit a tying, two-run homer in the seventh inning and scored the winning run on a wild pitch in the ninth to lift the Chicago White Sox over the Oakland Athletics 3-2 Saturday night.
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.
The White Sox on Friday optioned infielder/outfielder Gavin Sheets to Triple-A Charlotte. Sheets, 26, is hitting .204 with four homers, 10 RBIs and a .597 OPS in 44 games this season.
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.
The long-awaited move to option struggling left-handed hitter Gavin Sheets to Triple-A Charlotte took place before the game Friday night, but it came at a price. Because the White Sox’ bullpen was short-handed, Jimmy Lambert was summoned from Charlotte. That transaction left the Sox with only three bench players this weekend.
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — When he batted .250/.324/.506 with 11 homers in 54 games as a rookie last season, Gavin Sheets made an impression, enough of one for White Sox management to trust him as a needed left-handed power hitting piece in their 2022 lineup. Sheets was supposed to...
Sheets isn't in the lineup Wednesday against the Blue Jays. Sheets drew starts in the last four games and went 3-for-17 with a double, a run, a walk and two strikeouts, but he'll get a breather with left-hander Hyun Jin Ryu on the mound for the Blue Jays on Wednesday. Luis Robert will serve as the designated hitter while Adam Engel takes over in center field.
Sheets is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Red Sox. The lefty-hitting Sheets will retreat to the bench while the Red Sox bring southpaw Rich Hill to the mound Wednesday. Jake Burger replaces Sheets as the White Sox's designated hitter.
Sheets will be on the bench Friday against the Yankees. Sheets hits the bench against lefty Nestor Cortes. He's sat against all but one of the nine lefties the White Sox have faced this season. Andrew Vaughn will be the designated hitter Friday, while Adam Engel starts in right field.
Sheets isn't starting Wednesday against the Royals. Even with right-hander Zack Greinke on the mound Wednesday, Sheets will get a chance to reset after he went 1-for-11 with a walk and three strikeouts over the last three games. Andrew Vaughn will serve as the designated hitter while Adam Engel starts in right field.
Sheets isn't starting Saturday against the Yankees. Sheets has swung a hot bat recently, going 5-for-13 with three homers, a double, seven RBI, two walks and three strikeouts over the last four games. He'll get a breather Saturday while Andrew Vaughn serves as the designated hitter with Adam Engel starting in right field.
Gavin Sheets and the Chicago White Sox have both been having their ups and downs. From his sterling effort in the last few games to his horrid error that contributed to a loss by the White Sox against the Cleveland Guardians, he’s had his moments. Thanks to Sheets’ ability...
CHICAGO — Gavin Sheets homered in his second consecutive game, Tim Anderson had three hits and two RBIs and the Chicago White Sox shook off the previous night's big collapse and beat the Guardians 4-1 on Tuesday night. Starter Lucas Giolito (2-1) pitched seven innings and gave up just the one run that came...
Did this announcer really say 'are you sh-----g' me?' over this horrific error by White Sox outfielder Gavin Sheets?
On Monday night, the Chicago White Sox made an astounding four errors against the Cleveland Guardians, the type of performance that would make your local Little League team embarrassed, let alone an MLB team. The first of the night, while the least costly, ended up being an ugly omen. In...
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.
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.
