The White Sox pitching staff is still veteran-laden and has been proving its mettle all season, but gone is the ace who could drag the team single-handedly to victory, gone is Adam Eaton, absent is Jose Abreu as a lineup-redeeming force, absent is even Todd Frazier's home run power.

The good that emerged from Wednesday night's 9-1 loss to the New York Yankees didn't provide the White Sox with much immediate help.

Statcast measured Judge's hit at 115.5 miles per hour, the fourth-hardest hit homer this season. Yankees 2, White Sox 0. He hit a three-run home run into the left field bullpen to give NY at 7-1 lead.

"I do feel I am making the right strides", Tanaka said through an interpreter Friday.
