  1. If he produces on the mound, then he stays in the rotation. Its as simple as that. He really has only 2 pitches so he's gonna need to develop a 3rd at some point.
  2. White Sox recalled RHP Zack Burdi from the team's alternate training site. Burdi will take the place of Dylan Cease, who was just placed on the injured list with COVID symptoms.
  3. 100% and Cease hasn't looked great so I could see him eating some early season innings as the starter only to make way for Kopech. He's likely keeping the seat warm until he builds up his PC
  4. Kopech has been bouncing back strong from his multi-inning relief appearances and would have been an option to start Monday for Carlos Rodon (illness) had he not pitched the day before, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. The White Sox no longer have a vacancy in the rotation, as Rodon is set to start Wednesday, but it's encouraging to know that Kopech could be an option in the future. He has dominated to the tune of 6.1 scoreless frames in three appearances, striking out 11 and walking two over that span. Even in a 10 team w/no middle relief he's seem like a
  5. This guy has been awful so far at the dish. Was hoping for a good start but so far its been pretty bad. [...] Think the league change is the reason?
  6. Interesting.. He looks so damn good. I hate seeing great arms in the bullpen. Understand why they did it but they really need to get him prepared to start games
  7. What the % this guy ends up in the rotation for the Sox this season? I mean is that the goal? I remember years ago that was the path Sale took.
  8. Kid looked solid last night. Chris Flexen tossed five scoreless innings, giving up four hits and two walks; he also struck out six. Flexen’s strong outing earned him the win, as the Mariners shut out the Giants on Saturday, 4-0. The 26-year-old had little trouble beyond working out of jams in the third and fourth innings. It has been interesting to see how Flexen’s strong KBO performance from last year translates to a full MLB workload. His next appearance will be on April 11, where he will face the Minnesota Twins opposite Matt Shoemaker.
  9. 2 games and the kid looks pretty good. What's the 411 on this kid. I must admit, I don't know much about him. Was listening to the radio this morning and a guy on the KC beat said he was one to look out for. Obviously Bobby Witt was the topic of conversation but he mentioned this kid as someone to watch.
  10. Anything to see here? Was this also an issue in the spring? All three runs came with the snow coming down in the first two innings. Bieber settled in nicely afterwards, though his velocity remained down about two mph from last year. Probably in part due to the cold weather, most of the pitchers working today were throwing a little less hard than usual. Hopefully it won't prove to be a lingering issue for the 2020 AL Cy Young winner.
  11. I’d really like to know where ATL plans on having him in the batting order. Early last season he was in the 2 hole and later in the year he was hitting 5th. Feel like he’s more valuable in the 2 spot than at 5. Thoughts?
