|Marcus Semien continues to work in outfield at Triple-A |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(6/22/14) White Sox infielder Marcus Semien continues to get work in the outfield following his demotion to Triple-A Charlotte in early June, per MLB.com.
"He's going to really dictate how comfortable he is and how we see how comfortable he becomes," White Sox assistant general manager Buddy Bell said of Semien. "He's going to be fine. If you bring him up now, we could put him out there. I don't think you want to put him out there every day by any means, but I think he's capable of making all the plays. He's capable of keeping the ball in front of him.
"Whether that means he's got to play a little deeper than most -- but I think he's more than capable. Part of the problem is he's dealing with the fence, balls over his head and things like that that he never had to deal with before."
|Marcus Semien optioned to Triple-A |

(6/1/14) White Sox infielder Marcus Semien has been optioned to Triple-A Sunday.
Semien had his moments with the club, but was hitting just .222 over 162 at-bats. With Gordon Beckham performing well since his return, Semien was no longer needed on the major-league roster.
|Marcus Semien smacks key double in extra-innings win Monday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(5/6/14) White Sox infielder Marcus Semien went 2 for 5 with an RBI double in the 12th inning to break a 1-1 tie in his team's 3-1 win over the Cubs Monday.
Semien entered the game 0 for 11 in his last three appearances and without driving in a run in his last four games, but he posted a solid performance in what was a difficult day for White Sox batters, who had six hits in all in the 12-inning game. He owns a .220/.275/.356 line with three home runs and 16 RBI in 132 at-bats.
|Hitters to sit in Week 6 |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(5/2/14) What do A.J. Pierzynski, Adam LaRoche, Brandon Phillips, Marcus Semien, Everth Cabrera and Brett Gardner have in common? They're all "sits" for Fantasy Week 6 (May 5-11). Billy Butler didn't qalify for the list as a DH-only player, but he's not so advisable either with the Royals playing three games at San Diego to open the week.
Of course, whether or not you can actually sit them depends on your league type and the alternatives available to you. For the reasons why you might sit them and a list of possible replacements, check out Start and Sit Hitters for Week 6.
|Whiffs play role in Marcus Semien sliding to ninth spot |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(5/2/14) A spate of strikeouts likely entered into the decision by Robin Ventura to slide White Sox second baseman Marcus Semien down from second to ninth in the lineup.
Semien is tied for second in the majors with 38 strikeouts in 120 at-bats. But he has otherwise been productive with 19 runs, 15 RBI and three stolen bases. He has scored 10 runs in the last 11 games, but has avoided at least one strikeout in only four games this season.
|Marcus Semien's 2013 numbers probably exaggerate his prospect appeal, but he emerged as a legitimate part of the White Sox's future with the breakthrough performance. And they offered a glimpse of that future down the stretch, shifting him between third base, second base and shortstop while giving him everyday at-bats. Unfortunately, his most trustworthy attribute, his on-base ability, abandoned him in the majors. After having a walk for every strikeout between Double- and Triple-A, his ratio was quite literally 1-to-22 in the majors, which simply won't do. Hopefully, it was just a product of inexperience or small sample size, because Semien's moderate power and speed (think Brian Dozier level) probably won't be enough to carry him. Even with the rocky transition, Semien did show some encouraging signs during his late-season trial. Were they enough to earn him a regular job at one of those positions -- or perhaps a part-time role at all three? In a rebuilding year, possibly. If that's the case, he's well worth drafting in AL-only leagues. Otherwise, you can wait until he does something notable.
