White Sox morning roundup

From yesterday:

Philip Humber gave up five runs in five innings, walking four with three strikeouts and two home runs allowed as the White Sox fell to Toronto by a score of 9-5. Humber's ERA sits at 5.68 and he's walking exactly two more batters per nine innings this season than he did in 2011. After the game, Humber discussed his struggles with the media:

Before moving on to the second day of the draft, a few looks back at the first-round selection of Courtney Hawkins: The White Sox are thinking long-term with him and Keon Barnum, and Hawkins discussed growing up watching Frank Thomas.

Day 2 of the MLB Draft saw the White Sox take nine pitchers, three middle infielders, one catcher and one first baseman -- a pretty clear pattern of trying to bolster depth on the mound and at second base and shortstop, the latter two of which are lacking. Click here for analysis, video and notes on the picks.

Around the division: Carlos Santana returned to the Indians' lineup at DH as Cleveland beat Detroit 4-2, people are way too reactionary regarding Jim Leyland, and -- this is serious -- Bruce Chen and Francisco Liriano were locked in a pitcher's duel, with Chen and the Royals getting the better of Minnesota in a 1-0 win.
