LaRoche, who has been dealing with patella tendinitis in his right knee, hopes to return to the lineup during a four-game series against the Yankees, CSN Chicago reports.

EDGE Analysis

The lingering knee malady has kept LaRoche out of the lineup since September 13, but he believes he originally suffered the injury two months ago. An MRI revealed the tendinitis, and he has since received an injection to alleviate the soreness.

LaRoche is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the A's, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

LaRoche will sit for a third straight game, with all three absences coming against opposing right-handed pitchers. It seems manager Robin Ventura will continue to evaluate younger talent over the final weeks of the season rather than continue trotting LaRoche out there. The 35-year-old is batting .189/.241/.297 since the All-Star break.

LaRoche is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Twins, according to Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune.

EDGE Analysis

LaRoche played Friday after missing the previous three games with a sore knee, but he will head back to the bench Saturday with the White Sox employing a righty-heavy lineup against Twins starter Tommy Milone. Jose Abreu will get the start at firs base Saturday night.

LaRoche (knee) is in the lineup for Friday's game against the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

LaRoche, who owns an unsightly .543 OPS since the All-Star break, will start Friday night for the first time since Sunday. He will man first base and hit fifth against Twins starter Ervin Santana.

LaRoche (knee) is out of the lineup Wednesday, the Chicago Tribune's Colleen Kane reports.

EDGE Analysis

Given how well Trayce Thompson has played since coming up, specifically against righties, LaRoche might not even be part of Chicago's best lineup. He will have Wednesday and Thursday's off day to rest up and get ready for this weekend's series against the Twins.

LaRoche was scratched from Monday's lineup against the Indians on Monday due to a case of knee soreness.

EDGE Analysis

LaRoche, who was supposed to DH for the White Sox on Monday, will be replaced by J.B. Shuck. He's day-to-day as of now, but that could change with more information available after the game.

LaRoche is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Twins, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Left-hander Tommy Milone is toeing the rubber for Minnesota on Wednesday, so LaRoche will head to the bench, as he typically does against southpaws. LaRoche hit just .181/.244/.361 in August, his third month of the season with an average below the Mendoza Line.

LaRoche is out of Sunday's lineup against the Mariners, Doug Padilla of ESPN Chicago reports.

EDGE Analysis

LaRoche continues to sit against most southpaws, and that's the case again Sunday as the White Sox face the left-handed Edgar Olmos. Avisail Garcia will serve as the designated hitter in his place, while Trayce Thompson will enter the lineup in right field.
