|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/5/15) White Sox center fielder Adam Eaton and first baseman Adam LaRoche are back in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Tigers. Eaton missed three straight days with an illness. LaRoche left Sunday's game with an illness as well.
Eaton was replaced by J.B. Shuck for the last three days. Eaton was dealing with a 103 temperature for the last three days and lost 10 pounds because of the illness. He is hitting .192 with three doubles in 78 at-bats this season.
Laroche is hitting .211 with three home runs and nine RBI in 76 at-bats.
The White Sox are currently the favorites (-115) against Detroit Tuesday.

|(5/3/15) White Sox first baseman Adam LaRoche left Sunday's game in the bottom of the fifth inning.
LaRoche was one of several White Sox players who has been bothered by flu-like symptoms, and he looked like he wasn't feeling well earlier in the day, per Comcast Sports Net.

|(5/3/15) The White Sox left two regulars out of the lineup on Sunday and moved another to DH to give him a day's rest from playing the field.
Catcher Tyler Flowers is out of the lineup. For the third time in five games, he'll be replaced by Geovany Soto, who will bat eighth in the order.
Third baseman Conor Gillaspie is also out of the starting lineup, for just the fifth time this year. He's replaced by Gordon Beckham, who'll bat seventh.
Jose Abreu moves from first base to DH, swapping positions with Adam LaRoche, who gets his third start of the year at first base.
White Sox's Adam LaRoche finding success against righties
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/20/15) White Sox first baseman Adam LaRoche has swung a hot bat against right-handers this season, going 6 for 23 with five walks, three home runs and seven RBI.
LaRoche teed off Saturday, going 3 for 5 with his third home run of the year and four RBI, and though the home run came off righty starter Anibal Sanchez, he did manage a double off lefty reliever Blaine Hardy as well. He has four straight matchups against righties on tap, starting with Monday's game against Trevor Bauer and the Indians.
LaRoche has hit .243/.364/.541 with three home runs and eight RBI in 37 at-bats.
White Sox DH Adam LaRoche going through another slow start
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(4/12/15) The opening month of the season has rarely been kind to White Sox DH/first baseman Adam LaRoche, a fact the veteran knows all to well, according to MLB.com, but back-to-back home runs suggest LaRoche may be warming up.
Entering Sunday, LaRoche was hitting just .222 with 35 homers and .316 on-base and .400 slugging percentages in the first month of the season, numbers that all represent monthly lows for the 12-year player.
"I've had a lot of years where it has taken me a minute to get going," LaRoche said.
After LaRoche notched his first home run of the season Saturday, he added another solo shot in the third inning of the Sox's game Sunday against the Twins.
|2014 Summary: With free agency in his sights, Adam LaRoche bounced back from a miserable 2013 in which he played through nagging injuries, including bone chips in his elbow, to place seventh in the NL in home runs and tie for fifth in RBI. It was an uneven performance -- he hit .307 over his first 65 games and only .218 in his final 75 -- but he maintained a career-high walk rate throughout. His .362 on-base percentage contributed to him having the ninth-most Head-to-Head points per game at a deep position.|
Playing time status: In the market for a first baseman who could allow rising star Jose Abreu to spend some time at DH, the White Sox pounced on LaRoche early in the offseason, bringing him to a park that should help maximize his power. He's been a consistent source of 25-plus homers over the years, which counts for more in today's game than it did at the start of his career. But he is 35, giving the White Sox justification to platoon him if he gets off to a slow start. He hit only .204 against left-handers last year.
2015 Outlook: There's the rub on LaRoche. He's old, and his production has come and gone over the last few years. His performance in the second half last year showed how quickly things can change for him. He's all downside from here, so even though he's been a top-10 performer in both Head-to-Head and Rotisserie two of the last three years, he's better left for the late rounds in mixed leagues.
