CHICAGO (AP) - Eloy Jiménez hit a tiebreaking two-run homer in the ninth inning in his first game against his first major league organization, helping the Chicago White Sox beat the Chicago Cubs 3-1. The 22-year-old Jiménez was a top prospect for the Cubs before he headlined a rare trade with the White Sox for veteran left-hander José Quintana in July 2017.

CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago White Sox plan to extend the protective netting all the way to the foul poles at Guaranteed Rate Field, becoming the first major league team to take such a step in the wake of a couple of high-profile fan injuries. The White Sox and Illinois Sports Facilities Authority, which owns the ballpark, are hoping to complete the project this summer. All major league teams have netting that at least reaches the far ends of the dugouts.

CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago Cubs plan to move slowly with Kyle Hendricks after tests confirmed the right-hander is dealing with a shoulder impingement. Hendricks was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday, one day after he permitted five runs in 4 1/3 innings in a 5-3 loss to NL West-leading Los Angeles. Hendricks was 6-0 with a 1.99 ERA in his previous eight starts before stumbling against the Dodgers.

CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago White Sox have brought up catching prospect Zack Collins from Triple-A Charlotte and placed Welington Castillo on the 10-day injured list with a strained left oblique. The White Sox also reinstated Jace Fry from the IL before their 3-1 victory over the crosstown Cubs. The reliever had been sidelined by left shoulder soreness.
