White Sox add RHP Chris Beck from Triple-A, option Scott Carroll
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(4:40 pm ET) The White Sox have called up right-hander Chris Beck from Triple-A, in advance of the second game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Orioles. Beck was a second-round pick by the White Sox in the 2012 draft.

He has made eight starts with Triple-A Charlotte this season, going 3-2 with a 3.30 ERA. 

Fellow righty Scott Carroll was sent down to Triple-A in a corresponding move. 


Report: Nationals OF Jayson Werth likely out until August
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(4:32 pm ET) Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth, who is on the disabled list with a wrist injury, had a CT scan on his left wrist. The results showed two small fractures. Werth, who has been on the 15-day DL since May 19, is likely out until at least August, a source told The Washington Post

Werth has only played in 27 games this season, after missing the first week with a shoulder injury. 

Michael Taylor will likely continue to get the majority of the playing time in left field while Werth is out, though the team could look for help from outside the organization as well. 


White Sox OF Avisail Garcia unable to start in doubleheader
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4:32 pm ET) As expected, White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia did not return to the starting lineup for the second game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Orioles. He missed a fourth straight game due to a knee injury.

White Sox manager Robin Ventura said before the first game that it was unlikely Garcia would start Thursday due to lingering right knee inflammation. He has started just twice in the last eight games.


Red Sox rookie OF Rusney Castillo set to play Thursday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4:27 pm ET) Red Sox rookie outfielder Rusney Castillo is ready to roll Thursday night in Texas. He has been dealing with a shoulder issue that prevented him from playing Wednesday, but he will start in right and bat ninth.

The promising rookie is 3-for-15 since his promotion to the big leagues.


Orioles resting Caleb Joseph, Steve Pearce in nightcap Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(4:26 pm ET) In the second game of Thursday's doubleheader, Orioles manager is holding catcher Caleb Joseph and infielder/outfielder Steve Pearce out of the lineup against the White Sox. 

Joseph had started each of the last four games behind the plate. He went 0 for 3 with a pair of strikeouts in the first game. He will give way to Steve Clevenger, who is making his first start since being recalled from Triple-A on Tuesday.

Pearce, who started in left field in game one, also started each of the last four games for the Orioles. He had a single in three at-bats against Chris Sale in the first game. David Lough will get the start in left and bat ninth in the nightcap.


White Sox 3B Conor Gillaspie starts in second game of doubleheader
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4:26 pm ET) As expected, White Sox third baseman Conor Gillaspie was back in the starting lineup for the second game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Orioles after missing four starts due to a foot injury.

Gillaspie has a .300/.345/.500/.845 slash line in 16 May games. He also has one triple, two doubles, two home runs and six RBI.


White Sox DH Adam LaRoche emerges from 2-for-25 slump
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4:19 pm ET) White Sox DH Adam LaRoche tied a season high with three hits and had his third straight multihit game during a 3-2 win in the first game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Orioles. He had two doubles, one single and one RBI.

LaRoche is 7 for 12 in his last three games after being mired in a 2-for-25 slump in his previous eight games. Still, he has just one home run in his last 33 games.


Orioles' Travis Snider starting in right field for Game 2 Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(4:18 pm ET) Orioles outfielder Travis Snider is starting in right field and hitting second for the nightcap of Thursday's doubleheader against the White Sox. Snider was the final out as a pinch-hitter in the first game, which the Orioles dropped 3-2. 

Snider will take the place of Delmon Young, who went 2 for 4 in the first game, but is not in the lineup for the second game. 


White Sox's Petricka nets first save with Robertson unavailable
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4:12 pm ET) With White Sox manager Robin Ventura looking to stay away from closer David Robertson on Thursday, he turned to Zach Duke and Jake Petricka to close out a 3-2 win in the first game of a doubleheader against the Orioles.

Ventura kept Duke in the game in the ninth inning after he relieved Chris Sale with two outs in the bottom of the eighth. Duke struck out Manny Machado in the eighth to preserve a 2-0 lead. He took the mound in the ninth with a 3-0 lead.

He struck out the first two batters in the ninth before running into trouble. Delmon Young had a two-out single, and then Chris Davis parked a two-run homer into the right-field seats to cut the deficit to one.

Ventura went to Petricka for the final out of the game. He struck out Travis Snider for his first save of the season and 15th career save.


Orioles 1B Chris Davis blasts 11th home run in Game 1 Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(4:07 pm ET) Orioles first baseman Chris Davis launched his 11th home run of the season in the first game of Thursday's doubleheader against the White Sox. But, it was not enough as the Orioles fell 3-2.

Davis' home run, his only hit of the game, was a two-out, two-run shot in the bottom of the ninth off Zach Duke. It was his third longball in the last two games after going 13 games without one.
