Adam LaRoche 1B/DH CWS 1 week ago

LaRoche is out of the lineup Sunday against the Athletics, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Manager Robin Ventura will rest some of his left-handed hitters with southpaw Scott Kazmir on the mound, allowing Emilio Bonifacio to step in at DH in place of LaRoche. The 35-year-old is batting only .238, but has an excellent .370 on-base percentage to go along with four homers and 16 RBI.

LaRoche went 1-for-3 with a run scored and three RBI in the 7-6 win over Oakland Friday.

LaRoche has only 16 RBI on the season, but has grabbed at least one RBI in four of his last five games. He also has 11 walks this month and has posted a .512 OBP in 12 games so far this month, so clearly LaRoche is seeing the ball well right now.

LaRoche is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game in Milwaukee, Scott Merkin of reports.

Jose Abreu served as the DH over the weekend while dealing with a foot injury, but he's apparently healthy enough to play first base. While there was some talk that Abreu might play third base in a National League park, the White Sox have instead opted to just leave LaRoche out of the lineup. The team may go with a different approach Wednesday in Milwaukee.

LaRoche should remain in the White Sox's lineup, even with the team set to play in an NL park Monday through Wednesday, due to Jose Abreu's foot injury.

LaRoche and Abreu have split first base and DH duties this season, with LaRoche typically seeing more time at DH. That would have portended a seat on the bench in the DH-less Miller Park had Abreu not fouled a ball off his foot over the weekend. LaRoche has a 34 OPS+ on the season, but he has reached base safely in nine straight games, and he has a .500 OBP for the month of May.

LaRoche (illness) is in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Tigers.

LaRoche left Sunday's game early due to an illness, but with more than 48 hours to recover, he should be fine Tuesday night. Per usual, he's batting fourth and serving as the designated hitter.

LaRoche, who is feeling a bit under the weather, was replaced by Conor Gillaspie in the fifth inning Sunday, Dan Hayes of CSN Chicago reports.

LaRoche is the latest player to fall victim to the bug that appears to be going around the Chicago clubhouse. He'll take a seat for the rest of the afternoon after going 1-for-2 at the plate with a walk and a run scored.

LaRoche batted from the cleanup spot on Sunday against the Royals and went 1-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored.

After a hot start to the year, LaRoche has cooled down of late, dropping his average to .210 and failing to drive in a run in the six games prior to Sunday. He will continue to hit fourth in the order against right-handed pitching, however, and should see his fare share of RBI opportunities moving forward.

LaRoche went 3-for-5 Saturday with his third home run of the season and four RBI.

He's enjoying life as a White Sox so far, racking up 12 RBI in his first 11 games. He should continue seeing plenty of opportunities to drive runs in batting cleanup for Chicago.

LaRoche is 1-for-11 with a double after Chicago's opening series at Kansas City.

It was a rough start for the 35-year-old and his new contract, as six of those 11 outs came by strikeout. A key for LaRoche's career year last season was an 18.4 percent strikeout rate, his lowest in 10 years. He should look better against the Twins though, as he'll be hitting against a mediocre trio of Tommy Milone, Mike Pelfrey and Phil Hughes.

LaRoche was scratched from Wednesday's spring game with an illness, Doug Padilla of ESPN Chicago reports.

LaRoche reported feeling under the weather, but it doesn't appear to be a particularly serious ailment. Consider him day-to-day as he may be held out again Thursday and possibly Friday, but he should be back on the field without missing too much time.
