White Sox back in NL park, Adam LaRoche back on bench
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(6/30/15) White Sox DH Adam LaRoche was not in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Cardinals, as Chicago opened up a two-game series in an NL park.
He also started the game on the bench for two of three games at Milwaukee in May and a two-game series at Pittsburgh in mid-June.
LaRoche is batting just .189 (10 for 53) with one home run, four doubles, seven RBI, three runs, five walks and 22 strikeouts in his last 15 games.
White Sox DH Adam LaRoche collects three hits in Wednesday's loss
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(6/24/15) White Sox designated hitter Adam LaRoche was the lone bright spot in the White Sox's lineup during Wednesday's 6-1 loss to the Twins.
LaRoche went 3 for 4 at the plate and he drove in the lone run when he hit a home run off Phil Hughes in the second inning. He also struck out once.
Prior to his three-hit game Wednesday, LaRoche was hitting .135 with no home runs and three RBI in his last 11 games.
White Sox 1B Adam LaRoche has raked Tuesday starter Pelfrey
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(6/23/15) If history is any indication, White Sox first baseman Adam LaRoche could be in a for a big night Tuesday against Minnesota right-hander Mike Pelfrey.
LaRoche is batting a ridiculous .688 (11-for-16) lifetime against Pelfrey with a home run and seven RBI.
Something has to give - LaRoche is also in a miserable slump overall. He has just four hits in his last 34 at-bats, though he did manage his first multi-hit game since June 10 on Monday night.
White Sox DH Adam LaRoche nets fifth multi-RBI game
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(6/23/15) White Sox DH Adam LaRoche drove in two runs during a 13-2 loss Monday against the Twins. He went 2 for 4 with a strikeout.
LaRoche drove in both of his team's runs on a two-out bases-loaded single in the top of the third inning, which gave Chicago a 2-1 lead. Monday was just the fifth time this season LaRoche managed multiple RBI.
LaRoche has been mired in a hitting slump the last few weeks. He is batting just .156 in his last 13 games, dropping his season average from .244 to .226.
White Sox DH Adam LaRoche hits eighth home run of the season
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(6/11/15) White Sox Adam LaRoche blasted his eighth home rune of the year in his team's 4-1 win over the Tigers on Wednesday.
LaRoche went 2 for 4 with a home run and two RBI.
LaRoche is hitting .241/.356/.414 with eight home runs and 25 RBI in 187 at-bats this season.
|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.
