Marcus Semien continues to work in outfield at Triple-A


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/22/2014) 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


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/1/2014) 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
(5/6/2014) 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
(5/2/2014) 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
(5/2/2014) 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 blasts grand slam Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2014) White Sox infielder Marcus Semien went 1 for 4 with a crucial grand slam in his team's 6-4 win over the Tigers Wednesday.

Semien's third home run came with the bases loaded and his team down two in the seventh inning, and neither team was able to add any more runs in the game. He has hit .234/.280/.394 with three home runs, 13 RBI and two stolen bases in 94 at-bats.


Marcus Semien cracks out four hits, four RBI in win over Texas


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/20/2014) White Sox second baseman Marcus Semien came up big at the plate Sunday afternoon, cranking out four hits, including a bases-loaded triple in his team's 16-2 victory over the Rangers.

Semien also singled in the third, eighth and ninth innings, respectively. He finished 4 for 6 with two runs and four RBI. He is hitting .222 with just two homers and nine RBI in 81 at-bats.

Marcus Semien scuffling after fine start to season


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2014) White Sox second baseman Marcus Semien has not fallen into a deep slump, but he has certainly struggled after a strong start.

Semien has just two hits in his last 16 at-bats to lower his batting average from .250 to .216. He has also fanned 16 times in 56 at-bats, but has shown a bit of the power that marked his minor league career with two doubles and two home runs.


Marcus Semien collects four hits Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2014) White Sox infielder Marcus Semien went 4 for 5 with a double, a walk, two runs, two RBI and a stolen base in his team's 15-3 win over the Rockies Tuesday.

Semien has been struggling at the plate and needs to put some quality performances on tape to keep a regular starting job once the infield gets healthy. Tuesday's performance helped, though he may not get full credit on a Colorado night in which nearly all the White Sox hitters were raking. Semien has hit .243/.300/.378 with one home run in 37 at-bats.


Marcus Semien goes deep for season's first hit


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2014) White Sox infielder Marcus Semien made his first hit of the season count Thursday, as he followed up a pair of hitless outings with his first home run against the Twins.

Semien went just 1 for 4, but he scored and drove in a run twice, once on his home run and once following a walk. Semien also struck out twice, as the White Sox went on to lose, 10-9.

Semien is now just 1 for 14 to open the season, with five strikeouts and only one walk.  


White Sox send Gordon Beckham to DL


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2014) The White Sox made several moves on Wednesday, the most significant of which was the placement of starting second baseman Gordon Beckham on the disabled list with an oblique injury. Marcus Semien will replace him in the starting lineup.

The temporary loss of Beckham resulted in fellow second baseman Leury Garcia landing a spot on the opening day roster.


Marcus Semien would be 2B if starter is on DL


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2014) White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Sunday infielder Marcus Semien would be the starting second baseman, if Gordon Beckham (oblique) starts the season on the disabled list, which is looking likely, per MLB.com.

Marcus Semien, Leury Garcia expected to see work at second base


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/15/2014) White Sox manager Robin Ventura told the Chicago Sun-Times on Saturday that Marcus Semien and Leury Garcia will see some playing time at second base in place of an injured Gordon Beckham.

Beckham suffered a strained oblique, which should keep him sidelined for about a week. Semien has four hits in his first 17 at-bats while Garcia has just four hits in his first 16 at-bats this spring. 


Conor Gillaspie leading third-base competition for ChiSox


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/10/2014) If the season were to start tomorrow, it appears the White Sox would go with Conor Gillaspie as the starting third baseman over challengers Matt Davidson, Marcus Semien and Jeff Keppinger

Gillaspie entered play Monday batting .278 (5 for 18) with a .500 slugging percentage, one double, one home run and three RBI in seven games.

"To me, he’s just in a better spot this year confidence-wise, knowledge-wise on what he needs to do to play, offensively, defensively," manager Robin Ventura told reporters in Arizona, per ESPN. "He actually had one game that wasn’t very good, but everybody has those and you have to be able to get over that and still have the confidence, and he’s done that."


Marcus Semien belts first home run


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/24/2013) White Sox second baseman Marcus Semien hit his first home run Monday against the Blue Jays.

Semien went 2 for 4, with a home run and a single. He managed to hit a two-run home run off J.A. Happ in the second inning. Semien is hitting .306/.314/.429 in 49 at-bats. 


Marcus Semien back on the bench


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/16/2013) White Sox infielder Marcus Semien, one of the team's September call-ups, was out of the lineup for the first time in six games Monday against the Twins.

Though primarily a shortstop in the minors, he has played mostly third base for the White Sox, also getting a start at second. The 23-year-old is hitting .346 with a double and a steal in 26 at-bats after hitting .284 with 32 doubles, 19 homers, 24 steals and 98 walks in 518 at-bats between Double- and Triple-A.
