The Chicago White Sox, winners of 7 of their last 10 games and in first place in the AL Central at 32-25, are fueled by the bats of Adam Dunn and Paul Konerko, two players in their lineup who are experiencing a major resurgence as of late. Dunn, with 18 home runs and 39 RBI, leads the team in both of those categories, while Konerko is tops in the league with his .371 batting average.

5/2/12 - Starting pitcher Jake Peavy of the Chicago White Sox has been voted American League Pitcher of the Month for April. During the month, Peavy posted a 3-1 record with a 1.67 ERA with two complete games and 1 shutout over five starts. He also threw consecutive complete games and has allowed two runs in 25 innings over his last three starts, including a streak of 17 consecutive scoreless from April 18-28 according to ESPN. Peavy is looking to bounce back from an injury-filled 2011 campaign where he went 7-7 with an ERA of 4.92.

Phillip Humber, just two starts removed from his perfect game, will get the ball for the White Sox on Wednesday.
Just when people throughout baseball thought that history was repeating itself after his rough season in 2011, Adam Dunn has gotten hot and helped the Chicago White Sox to a 10-8 record through the first 18 games. While his batting average still sits lower than he would like it at .235, he has already contributed four home runs and 14 RBI's on the young season, including a two home run day against the Seattle Mariners. Paul Konerko has also gotten off to a great start, hitting .357 with four HR's and 13 runs batted in. The White Sox will host the reeling Boston Red Sox in a three game series this weekend.
While most of the attention in the American League Central has been focused on the slugging Detroit Tigers, the Chicago White Sox have quietly put together a solid 3-2 record to open the season. Paced by slugging first basemen Paul Konerko's .450 batting average and catcher A.J. Pierzynski's two home runs, the Sox have scored 20 runs so far while only giving up 19. Reliever-turned-starter Chris Sale was very good in his first Major League start, allowing just 1 run in 6.2 innings while striking out five. The team will have an early season test against the aforementioned Tigers when they travel to Detroit this weekend for a three game series.
