White Sox 1B Adam LaRoche benched against lefty Thursday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2015) A matchup Thursday against Seattle left-hander Roenis Elias has White Sox first baseman Adam LaRoche out of the lineup.

LaRoche has hit safely in five of his last six games, but has a mere 14 hits in 86 at-bats against southpaws this season. 


White Sox 1B Adam LaRoche benched against lefty Monday

(8/17/2015) A matchup against Angels left-hander Andrew Heaney and continued struggles at the plate have White Sox first baseman Adam LaRoche on the bench Monday night. Trayce Thompson is set to take his place in the batting order.

LaRoche has no multi-hit games in August and just one hit in his last 21 at-bats to send his average reeling to .208, its lowest point since May 2. He is batting a mere .167 (14-for-84) against southpaws this season.


Adam LaRoche gets four hits for White Sox


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2015) White Sox DH Adam LaRoche went 4 for 5 in Friday's loss to the Yankees. 

LaRoche doubled and drove in a run and recorded his first multi-hit game since July 8. 

It was his first four-hit game since September 4, 2012.

LaRoche also took the mound to pitch a perfect ninth inning, striking out one. It was his first pitching appearance in the Majors and first overall since Double-A Greenville in 2003.


Scuffling White Sox 1B Adam LaRoche benched for two games


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2015) Struggling White Sox first baseman Adam LaRoche is set to sit for the first two games of the series in Boston.

LaRoche is batting just .212 with nine homers and 34 RBI with a terrible .347 slugging percentage. He has gone homerless over the last 25 games. He has just six hits in his last 49 at-bats.

"Probably give him two just to work out some things," Robin Ventura told MLB.com. "I know you can get frustrated."


White Sox 1B Adam LaRoche believes struggles are mental


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2015) Struggling White Sox first baseman Adam LaRoche can only watch so much tape of his approach at the plate and swing. He realizes that his problems are more between his ears than what he sees on replay.

LaRoche has been a dud in his first year in the Windy City. He is batting just .221 with nine home runs and 33 RBI in the middle of what should be a strong lineup. He is batting a mere .160 (8-for-50) with no taters and two RBI in July.

"You keep swinging and you keep working," he told MLB.com. "There's only so much video you can watch, only so many things you can go back and look at that you think might have been different in the past. The fact is you just have to get in the box and be confident, expect good things to happen."

LaRoche has been particularly weak in the clutch. He is just 23-for-140 this season with runners on base and owns a .310 slugging percentage in those situations.


Scuffling White Sox 1B Adam LaRoche out of lineup at Wrigley


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2015) A trek north to Wrigley Field has White Sox first baseman Adam LaRoche out of the lineup Friday afternoon as Jose Abreu will man the position instead.

LaRoche has performed below expectations all year with a slash line of .226/.331/.380 and just nine home runs in 266 at-bats. He is also on a 4-for-29 slide since June 28.


Adam LaRoche having disappointing first season with ChiSox


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2015) DH Adam LaRoche has been a "disappointment" since joining the White Sox on a two-year, $25 million contract in the offseason, one person with ties to the team told CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. 

There seems to be some thought LaRoche is having trouble adjusting to a full-time DH role and could play in the field more as the season progresses. Other theories are he is still getting acclimated to a new league and is historically a slow starter.

LaRoche, who has spent most of his MLB career playing first base in the NL, is batting .226 with nine home runs and 33 RBI in 79 games.


White Sox DH Adam LaRoche hitting .235 in last 16 games


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2015) Despite collecting two hits in Wednesday's win over the Blue Jays, White Sox hitter Adam LaRoche has been struggling at the plate recently.

LaRoche is hitting .235 with one home run and nine RBI in his last 16 games. Prior to Wednesday's two-hit performance, LaRoche had been 0 for his last 11 at-bats.


White Sox back in NL park, Adam LaRoche back on bench


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/30/2015) 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
(6/24/2015) 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
(6/23/2015) 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

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.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

LaRoche has endured a slow start to the season but has picked things up over the last week, going 10 for 27 with four walks, two doubles and two home runs. That performance has boosted his line to .236/.365/.395 with six home runs and 22 RBI in 157 at-bats.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/28/2015) Adam LaRoche followed up his three-hit performance from the first game of the White Sox doubleheader with the Orioles with a two-run home run in the nightcap. LaRoche's bomb was his fifth of the season, and first since May 13. 

His third-inning home run, his only hit of the game, gave the White Sox a temporary 3-2 lead. Though it wouldn't be enough as the Orioles went on to defeat the White Sox 6-3.  


White Sox DH Adam LaRoche emerges from 2-for-25 slump


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

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.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

LaRoche had played first in Saturday's and Sunday's interleague game against the Reds, but Abreu had DH'd in the American League park. 

It has been previously reported that the White Sox have considered moving Abreu to third base for interleague games with no DH, in order to keep both he and LaRoche in the lineup.


Jose Abreu may play third base for White Sox interleague games


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/8/2015) White Sox first baseman Jose Abreu may move to third base to keep DH Adam LaRoche in the lineup for interleague games. 

Abreu hasn't played third in more than five years, but the White Sox have discussed the option. 

"There’s a possibility of that," manager Robin Ventura said, per CSN Chicago. "He can do it. … It might not be his best position but he can play. So if we need that offense to stay in there with LaRoche, we can move him over to third base. I’m not afraid to do that."
