The White Sox are one of the most competitive teams in the league to start the season in 2022. They were able to take the first two games of their series against the Tampa Bay Rays, but they were not able to complete the sweep in the series' final game on Sunday. After falling behind early, Chicago managed to get back in the game with a couple of runs in the fourth before Gavin Sheets hit a home run in the ninth.
Outfielder AJ Pollock, who led the league with 21 home runs last season, got injured during the first weekend of the season. Yermin Mercedes also underwent surgery for a hamate injury.
After starting the season with six strong games, the Cleveland offense went cold during the three-game series against the Giants. The Guardians only managed to score one run in the series' final game on Sunday. Austin Hedges' single in the seventh inning was their only hit of the game.
Right-handed pitcher James Karinchak, who had 11 saves and 78 strikeouts last season, was placed on the injured list due to a shoulder issue. In addition, Yu Chang, who had a .0.4 WAR last season, went on the injured list due to an undisclosed reason. Also, starting pitchers Carlos Vargas and Cody Morris are due to shoulder and elbow injuries.
