  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Clears waivers, heads to Triple-A

    Mendick cleared waivers Friday and was outrighted to Triple-A Charlotte, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

    Mendick was designated for assignment Wednesday to clear the way for Nick Senzel to join the active roster. After going unclaimed, Mendick will join the White Sox's Triple-A affiliate. He has logged 141 plate appearances with the White Sox this season and posted a .561 OPS with three homers and six stolen bases.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Gets bumped off 40-man roster

    The White Sox designated Mendick for assignment Wednesday.

    Mendick will give up his spot on the 40-man roster and 26-man active roster to third baseman Nick Senzel, whom the White Sox signed to a one-year contract Wednesday. While operating largely as a short-side platoon player in the infield for the White Sox this season, Mendick slashed .197/.243/.318 with three home runs and six stolen bases over 141 plate appearances.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Goes deep in loss

    Mendick went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer, two runs scored and a walk in Sunday's loss to Miami.

    Mendick opened the game's scoring with his two-run shot in the fourth inning. It was his third long ball of the year and first since May 26. The utility infielder is slashing just .200/.248/.328 with 10 extra-base hits and 13 runs scored through 134 plate appearances.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Heading back to bench

    Mendick is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Astros.

    Mendick started at second base in each of the last three games, but the White Sox faced two lefty starters and a lefty primary pitcher in those contests. He'll head back to the bench Wednesday while the lefty-hitting Nicky Lopez steps back in at the keystone against Astros right-hander Hunter Brown.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Serving in utility role

    Mendick is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cubs.

    Though he started at second base in Tuesday's 7-6 loss while the lefty-hitting Nicky Lopez was out of the lineup versus Cubs southpaw Shota Imanaga, Mendick finds himself on the bench for the second matchup in a row with a right-hander. Mendick looked as though he could get a look in an everyday role at third base after Bryan Ramos was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte last week, but Lenyn Sosa appears to have since settled in as the primary option at the hot corner.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Should have regular role

    Mendick went 2-for-4 with a stolen base Saturday against the Brewers.

    Mendick is expected to have a regular role in the White Sox's lineup after Bryan Ramos was sent to Triple-A Charlotte on Thursday. However, Mendick started at second base Saturday and notched his sixth multi-hit appearance of the season as well as his second stolen base. He is unlikely to hit for much average thanks to a 29.3 percent strikeout rate, though he could be a decent source of homers and steals in deeper formats so long as he keeps seeing consistent playing time.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Pops pinch-hit homer

    Mendick hit a solo home run in his only plate appearance Sunday against the Orioles.

    Mendick continues to lose out on playing time due to the return of Bryan Ramos, though he accounted for the White Sox's only run Sunday after his homer in the eighth inning. It was Mendick's second home run of the season and first since April 30.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Losing playing time to Ramos

    Mendick is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Orioles.

    Mendick looks to have moved back into a utility role following Bryan Ramos' return from the 10-day injured list Saturday. Ramos will pick up a second straight start at the hot corner while Mendick once again hits the bench.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: On bench Wednesday

    Mendick is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays.

    After being activated from the injured list Friday, Mendick had started at third base in each of the White Sox's ensuing five games, going 3-for-18 with two doubles and two RBI. Mendick should have a fairly clear path to regular playing time at the hot corner while Bryan Ramos (quadricep) is on the shelf, but he'll give way to Zach Remillard in Wednesday's series finale.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Drives in two

    Mendick went 2-for-4 with a single and a two-run double during Tuesday's 5-0 win over the Blue Jays.

    Mendick entered Tuesday's contest 1-for-14 (.071) in four games since coming off the IL. The 30-year-old delivered a two-run double in the eighth inning off Tim Mayza to provide the White Sox with some insurance runs. Mendick has been serving as the White Sox's everyday third baseman with Bryan Ramos (quad) sidelined.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: First hit since return

    Mendick went 1-for-3 with a double Sunday against the Yankees.

    Mendick was activated from the injured list Friday and has since started all three games at third base while hitting in the bottom third of the order. He collected his first hit since returning with a double in the seventh frame. With Bryan Ramos (quadriceps) sidelined, Mendick should have a clear path to playing time in the short term.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Activated from IL

    Mendick (back) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Friday.

    Mendick was placed on the injured list in early May with back soreness and only needed two rehab starts before being activated. During those two Triple-A games, Mendick went 0-for-8 with two walks and a run scored. He'll replace Braden Shewmake on the big-league roster and could see immediate action at third base with Bryan Ramos also headed to the 10-day IL with a strained left quad.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Hitless in first rehab game

    Mendick (back) went 0-for-5 with a walk in his first rehab game Tuesday with Triple-A Charlotte.

    Mendick served as Charlotte's designated hitter, so he'll presumably need to resume playing the infield at some point during his rehab assignment before the White Sox bring him back from the 10-day injured list, perhaps as soon as this weekend. Following his promotion from Charlotte on April 22, Mendick had briefly settled into a near-everyday role at third base, but it's unclear if he'll recapture a regular starting gig once activated. Prospect Bryan Ramos (quadricep) has since settled in as Chicago's third baseman, and the organization could be inclined to let him continue playing regularly.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Nearing rehab assignment

    Mendick (back) is expected to begin a rehab assignment in the near future, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

    Mendick will begin a rehab assignment in the next day or two according to manager Pedro Grifol. The 30-year-old has been out since May 2 with lower-back tightness, but he appears to be on track to return to the major-league roster in the near future.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Battling back tightness

    Mendick was scratched from the White Sox's lineup for Friday's game against St. Louis due to lower-back tightness, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

    The severity of Mendick's injury remains unknown, but it is apparently enough to prevent him from starting Friday's contest. Braden Shewmake will serve as Chicago's third baseman while batting ninth.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Lands on injured list

    The White Sox placed Mendick on the 10-day injured list Saturday with lower-back tightness, retroactive to Thursday.

    Mendick's back issues caused him to be scratched from the lineup prior to Friday's game, and they will now officially cost him more than a week as he heads to the IL. Bryan Ramos was recalled from Double-A Birmingham in a corresponding move and could receive the majority of reps at third base while Mendick is sidelined.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Scratched Friday

    Mendick was scratched from Friday's lineup against the Cardinals for unspecified reasons.

    Mendick was slated to bat seventh and play third base but was moved out of the lineup for reasons yet to be disclosed. Instead, Braden Shewmake will play third and bat ninth.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Belts first homer

    Mendick went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and a double during Tuesday's loss to the Twins.

    Mendick has never been known to be a power hitter, but his two-run shot in the fifth inning gave Chicago a 4-2 lead over the Twins in a game the White Sox would eventually lose. The 30-year-old infielder has now collected a hit in four of his last five games and is slashing .286/.324/.457 across 37 plate appearances since joining the Sox on April 22.

  • White Sox's Danny Mendick: Hitting well

    Mendick went 2-for-4 with two runs scored Friday against Tampa Bay.

    Mendick joined the White Sox on Monday and has started every game since. He's hit at different spots in the order, but was slotted into the seventh spot Friday and is likely to remain in the bottom third with the addition of Tommy Pham. Mendick has gone 6-for-21 with two doubles, a stolen base and four runs scored, though he is striking out at a 31.8 percent clip.
