by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1:05 pm ET) White Sox standout Jose Abreu received good news Saturday when x-rays on his ailing finger came back negative, a source has told the Chicago Sun-Times.

Orioles CF Adam Jones receives first break of year Saturday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Chen has been shaky in his last two starts, allowing seven runs on 19 hits in 12 innings. His 1-3 record is not indicative of how he's pitched this season, however. He owns a solid 3.13 ERA.
