White Sox beat writer for the Chicago Sun-Times
The White Sox’ Jose Abreu leads League first basemen in fan voting for the All-Star Game for the second straight week. Mitch Moreland is second.

As general manager Rick Hahn says, the White Sox “have no biases as far as who winds up being the 25 guys that help us win a championship.”
Right-hander James Shields pitched seven innings of one-run ball Tuesday against the Indians, allowing four hits and no walks and striking out two.
Yoan Moncada led off the first inning of the White Sox’ game Tuesday with his ninth homer of the season. All nine are from the left side of the plate.
Getting voted into All-Star Game would “be excellent because we play this game for the fans,” said Jose Abreu, who leads Mitch Moreland in fan voting.
Outfielder Eloy Jimenez and right-hander Michael Kopech won’t be getting called up anytime soon, White Sox general manager Rick Hahn said Monday.
