The White Sox, in the middle of a rebuilding plan, also completed a trade with the New York Yankees. The Bombers appeared to be rebuilding themselves at the start of the season, but a better-than-expected start has apparently put general manager/senior vice president Brian Cashman in a go-for-it mode]]> 4967142 Mon, 24 Jul 2017 9:14:01 EDT Bleacher Report

<![CDATA[Quintana allows three runs, whiffs seven in win]]> Jose Quintana won after allowing three runs on five hits (two homers) and two walks with seven strikeouts over six innings Sunday vs. the Cardinals.

He looks like a must-start for his next outing, which is scheduled for July 28 at the Brewers.]]> 4967058 Sun, 23 Jul 2017 23:42:20 EDT
