Shades of Jim Thome for Todd Frazier

Frazier hit his 40th home run of the season on Wednesday. He's the second player to hit at least 40 homers in his first season with the White Sox, joining Jim Thome, who had 42 homers in his first go with Chicago in 2006, the Elias Sports Bureau notes.

White Sox hold steady in Power Rankings

The White Sox had a light slate last week, winning two of their five games, and will wrap up the season against the Rays and Twins. Chris Sale and Jose Quintana have received plenty of attention this year, but Adam Eaton's breakout campaign shouldn't go unnoticed. Week 25 Power Rankings

Rodon, Robertson combine for rare feat

Carlos Rodon and David Robertson combined to strike out 14 batters while allowing only two hits in a 3-0 win on Sunday. It was the second shutout victory in White Sox history in which they limited their opponent to two or fewer hits and struck out 14 or more batters, per the Elias Sports Bureau. The other was done by Early Wynn in 1959.

What a year for James Shields. He's now allowed 7+ runs 8 times this season! Most since Cory Lidle also did it 8 times in 2003.

Hansen's debut deserves a shout out

Keith Law lists White Sox second-rounder Alec Hansen among the 2016 draftees that enjoyed the best debuts. The 21-year-old made adjustments after a rough spring performance to rack up big strikeout numbers across three minor league levels. Best 2016 debuts (Insider)

Hosmer historically owned the White Sox

Eric Hosmer drove in 23 runs vs. the White Sox this year, the second-highest RBI total against a team for a Royals player in a single season, per the Elias Sports Bureau. George Brett holds the record for Kansas City, having totaled 24 RBIs against the Rangers in 1985.

White Sox hold steady in Power Rankings

The White Sox went 4-3 last week, but it's too little, too late as the team approaches elimination from the playoffs. James Shields posted his second straight quality outing on Thursday, but his walk total in September is alarming. Week 24 Power Rankings
