First to third

• Right-handed reliever Frank Francisco declined his outright assignment to Charlotte and declared for free agency.

• Catcher Hector Gimenez, who played 26 games for the White Sox last season, was traded to the Blue Jays' organization. Gimenez has been with Charlotte since the start of the '14 season.

John Danks' eight scoreless innings Saturday marked the 11th time since 2012 that a White Sox starter worked at least eight scoreless. The White Sox are just 7-4 (.636) in those contests, the worst winning percentage in baseball in such games.

• The White Sox are 4-3 since Abreu went on the disabled list on May 18 with inflammation in his left ankle.
