8/17/2017 José Ramírez, Cle, 3B
Ramirez has left Thursday's game against Minnesota after getting hit by a pitch.

Analysis: Ramirez was hit in the right forearm by a 93.1 mph pitch from Kyle Gibson in the top of the second inning. He kneeled a few feet down the first-base line and was quickly attended to by a trainer. He walked off holding his arm after a few minutes. The first-time All-Star has 18 home runs and 58 RBIs this season for the first-place Indians. He leads the American League with 61 extra-base hits, including a league-tying 38 doubles.
8/17/2017 Rubby De La Rosa, Ari, P
De La Rosa is set to undergo Tommy John surgery for the second time in his career.

Analysis: Not only will this keep him out the rest of this season, but it's very possible he won't pitch in 2018, either. He first underwent this procedure in 2011.
8/17/2017 Juan Minaya, CWS, P
Juan Minaya did not allow a hit or walk in 0.2 scoreless innings as the Chicago White Sox lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-4 on Wednesday. Minaya did not strike out a batter, ending the game with a 4.66 ERA and 1.24 WHIP on the season.
8/17/2017 Aaron Bummer, CWS, P
Aaron Bummer allowed one run on one hit without recording an out as the Chicago White Sox lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-4 on Wednesday. Bummer did not strike out a batter, ending the game with a 7.00 ERA and 1.33 WHIP on the season.
8/17/2017 Gregory Infante, CWS, P
Gregory Infante did not allow a hit or walk in 0.1 scoreless innings as the Chicago White Sox lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-4 on Wednesday. Infante did not strike out a batter, ending the game with a 4.50 ERA and 1.62 WHIP on the season.
8/17/2017 Ross Stripling, LAD, P
Ross Stripling improved to 2-4, allowing no hits over 1.0 scoreless inning, as the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Chicago White Sox 5-4 on Wednesday. Stripling struck out one, ending the game with a 3.60 ERA and 1.22 WHIP on the season.
8/17/2017 Carlos Rodón, CWS, P
Carlos Rodon allowed two runs on five hits and four walks in 7.1 innings as the Chicago White Sox lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-4 on Wednesday. Rodon struck out four, ending the game with a 4.00 ERA and 1.39 WHIP on the season.

Analysis: Facing one of the majors' top-hitting teams didn't slow down Rodon, who left with a 4-2 lead before the bullpen gave up three runs in the ninth. The left-hander has given up no more than two runs in four straight starts and has pitched at least into the seventh inning in all of them.
8/17/2017 Austin Barnes, LAD, C
Austin Barnes went 1 for 4 Wednesday as the Los Angeles Dodgers topped the Chicago White Sox 5-4. Barnes scored once. He ended the game with a .293 batting average.
8/17/2017 Chris Taylor, LAD, 2B
Chris Taylor went 0 for 3 Wednesday as the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Chicago White Sox 5-4. He ended the game with a .303 batting average.
8/17/2017 Yolmer Sánchez, CWS, 2B

Analysis: Seager has recorded at least two hits in four of his last six games and 10 of 17, batting .406 in that span.
8/17/2017 Logan Forsythe, LAD, 2B
Logan Forsythe went 2 for 3 with two doubles and an RBI Wednesday as the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Chicago White Sox 5-4. Forsythe scored twice. He ended the game with a .242 batting average.

Analysis: Forsythe has a .471 OBP in his last nine games while driving in six runs and scoring seven.
8/17/2017 Avisaíl García, CWS, RF
Avisail Garcia went 1 for 4 Wednesday as the Chicago White Sox fell to the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-4. He ended the game with a .307 batting average.
8/17/2017 José Abreu, CWS, 1B
Jose Abreu went 2 for 4 with a home run and an RBI Wednesday as the Chicago White Sox fell to the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-4. The homer was his 22nd of the season. He ended the game with a .293 batting average.

Analysis: Abreu is 8 for 16 with three home runs in his last four games. He has four RBIs in that span after going 10 straight games without one.
8/17/2017 Yoán Moncada, CWS, 2B
Yoan Moncada went 0 for 4 Wednesday as the Chicago White Sox fell to the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-4. He ended the game with a .185 batting average.
8/17/2017 Leury García, CWS, CF
Leury Garcia went 2 for 5 with a home run and an RBI Wednesday as the Chicago White Sox lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-4. The homer was his eighth of the season. He ended the game with a .289 batting average.

Analysis: Garcia came through with a strong performance as he was moved up to leadoff, a spot from which he's hit .313 with 13 extra-base hits in 29 games.
8/17/2017 Kiké Hernández, LAD, CF
Kike Hernandez went 1 for 2 with a home run and an RBI Wednesday as the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Chicago White Sox 5-4. The homer was his 11th of the season. He ended the game with a .221 batting average.

Analysis: Hernandez went deep and drew a walk in what was just his fifth start in August. He has a .350 OBP with five RBIs in those five games, so it's possible he will get more time in the starting lineup in the near future with fellow outfielder Joc Pederson in a 1-for-38 slump.
8/17/2017 Tyler Saladino, CWS, 2B
Tyler Saladino went 0 for 1 Wednesday as the Chicago White Sox fell to the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-4. He ended the game with a .194 batting average.
8/17/2017 Tim Anderson, CWS, SS
Tim Anderson went 1 for 4 Wednesday as the Chicago White Sox fell to the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-4. He ended the game with a .242 batting average.

Analysis: Anderson has three leadoff homers this year, including one Tuesday, but was moved to eighth in the order because of matchups, according to manager Rick Renteria. With the Dodgers starting right-hander Yu Darvish on Wednesday, Leury Garcia was 2 for 5 with a homer from the leadoff spot. Anderson has five home runs and 11 RBIs in his past 12 games but might not get back into the leadoff spot right away with Chicago facing righties again Thursday and Friday against Texas.
8/17/2017 Yasiel Puig, LAD, RF
Yasiel Puig went 1 for 3 with a double and two RBIs Wednesday as the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Chicago White Sox 5-4. He ended the game with a .253 batting average.

Analysis: Puig's walk-off, two-run double in the ninth inning was his first hit in six games. He also drew his seventh walk in five games.
