I remember after Sale’s previous start I was complaining that Ventura/Cooper should’ve taken Sale out after 8 innings since he had thrown 101 pitches. Well, he had 101 pitches after 8 innings today too. Thankfully he was removed after 8 today.

Sale couldn’t find the plate and threw only 2 of his first 11 pitches for strikes. He threw 23 of the 46 pitches in the first inning  for strikes. After the first inning things were much better but the offense decided to take the night off.

In his first 5 starts Sale averaged 92.35, 91.60, 93.44, 94.35, 94.26 (last to first start) mph on his two-seamer. So, today velocity was down. The game started 1 hour later than scheduled due to a rain-delay, and the air was pretty dump. Sale, also, threw 19 sliders tonight. Number of sliders in his first 5 starts: 23, 28, 49, 18, 31 (last to first start).

Jesse Crain down, Dylan Axelrod up

Filed under: Chicago White Sox — The Wizard @ April 27, 2012 8:00 pm
Tags: , , ,

whitesox.com:

The White Sox placed right-hander Jesse Crain on the disabled list Friday, retroactive to April 21, with a strained left oblique. Righty Dylan Axelrod was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte to take his place in the bullpen.

Crain, who hasn’t pitched since April 20, said he was going to refrain from activity until Tuesday, when the White Sox begin a three-game series with the Indians. He said he injured his oblique doing twists in the weight room.

The 30-year-old right-hander said he was hopeful he’d be able to return from the DL on May 5, the first day he’s eligible. …

Axelrod will be Sox’ long reliever:

White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Axelrod will serve as the team’s long reliever. Right-handers Nate Jones and Zach Stewart will move up in the bullpen to fill Crane’s late-inning role.

This is Axelord’s second stint with the White Sox, after appearing in four games for Chicago last September. The 26-year-old went 1-0 with a 2.89 ERA in those outings (three starts) and Ventura said he’s comfortable handing the ball to Axelrod.

“He’s been up here, so it’s not like we’re bringing somebody up that can’t pitch here,” Ventura said. “We have confidence in Axe and we’ll make due until Jesse’s ready.”

Axelrod was impressive in four Triple-A starts, going 2-1 with a 1.08 ERA in 25 innings. He said a big part of his success has come from incorporating his changeup more often.

“It’s been really effective for me. It’s added another dimension, makes my fastball a little bit better,” Axelrod said. “My first start, I threw about four changeups and they got a call that said work on it, so I’ve been trying to throw about 15 a game after that and it’s been paying off.”

As J.J. says, the player with the most to gain here is Nate Jones.

White Sox @ Reds @ 3:05 pm CT; game on CSN-TV

Tags: , , , , ,

Watch live on CSN-TV as Jake Peavy takes the hill when the Sox are hosted by the Reds today at 3:05 p.m. CT. Look for the right-hander to throw fewer innings and fewer pitches in comparison to his Minor League start this past Tuesday (3 innings and/or 70 pitches), giving Zach Stewart ample time and opportunity to work two or three innings in relief, with Addison Reed, Matt Thornton and Hector Santiago also scheduled to throw. The White Sox are expected to throw out their everyday lineup, with the exception of Kosuke Fukudome in right instead of Alex Rios. Gameday | Boxscore

White Sox set their 25-man roster

Filed under: Chicago White Sox — The Wizard @ March 31, 2012 10:05 pm
Tags: , , , , , ,

Scott Merkin:

The White Sox set their 25-man roster on Saturday morning by optioning right-handed pitcher Dylan Axelrod to Triple-A Charlotte and reassigning RHP Brian Bruney, C Hector Gimenez, INF Rey Olmedo, LHP Leyson Septimo and LHP Eric Stults to Minor League camp.

With those moves, the White Sox have 12 pitches, two catchers, six infielders and five outfielders set to break camp. Eduardo Escobar was selected as the final position player, as expected, while Zach Stewart and Nate Jones round out the seven-man bullpen.

In that relief crew, the White Sox have four players with 70 days of big-league experience or less and three in Addison Reed, Jones and Hector Santiago, with 30 days or less. General manager Ken Williams said Saturday that he knew two weeks ago Jones and his fastball in the high 90s would make the team.

Here’s the Sox 25-man (Active) roster.

And here are Kenny Williams’ comments on today’s roster decisions.

BTW, Nate Jones was working on his changeup yesterday:

Jones added a cutter/slider to his repertoire last season and has worked on his changeup over the past six weeks. He showed that change during his one inning of work Friday against the Royals, bouncing back from walking the first two hitters he faced to pitch a scoreless inning

Here are the Pitch-F/X readings for Jones’ appearance yesterday.

Robin Ventura talks about the 2012 Sox

Scott Merkin:

Ventura was asked about a few key matters during an interview session with White Sox beat reporters on Thursday and came up with a few pre-Spring Training solutions. The White Sox starting rotation, which looks to be one of its strongest suits, seems all but set with John Danks, Gavin Floyd, Chris Sale and Jake Peavy. According to Ventura, Philip Humber has the advantage at No. 5 over any of the young newcomers such as Nestor Molina or returnees such as Zach Stewart or Dylan Axelrod.”Phil would be that leader heading into the clubhouse,” Ventura said of Humber, whose breakout 2011 effort resulted in a 9-9 record and 3.75 ERA. “I don’t see anything changing with that at this point. We will see during Spring Training, but I’m confident in Phil in doing that No. 5 position.”Humber posted an 8-5 record with a 3.10 ERA and .218 opponents average against in the first half, but had a 1-4 mark, 5.01 ERA and .287 average against after the All-Star break.

Reliever Matt Thornton‘s season was slightly reversed, as the left-hander posted a 2.45 ERA over 52 games after May 1 following an 8.64 ERA in April. Thornton also had blown saves in his first four chances, although he didn’t have the best of luck behind him. Even with that slow start, Ventura tabbed Thornton on Thursday as his leading 2012 closer candidate over rookie Addison Reed and Jesse Crain. “I’m leaning on Matt doing that,” Ventura said. “I don’t think those type of things are concrete. I would like to see him do that, but we’ll see how that goes in Spring Training with him and how he feels.”

In Ventura’s estimation, the team doesn’t have a true utility infielder at this point. Brent Lillibridge earned high praise from Ventura for his versatility and talent, but he wasn’t identified as a possible backup shortstop. Ventura said that Alex Rios could see time in both left field and center field, and as of now, Alejandro De Aza looks to be the leadoff man. Of course, it’s just late January and things could change by the end of Cactus League action. “Gordon [Beckham] could probably do it depending on how he feels about that and how he looks in Spring Training, as far as getting on base,” Ventura said of the leadoff slot. “He has more power than normal leadoff guys, but he’s one of them.”

Stewart:

“Warming up, I felt like I was hitting my spots,” Stewart said. “My breaking stuff was working and my changeup was good. And that was the thing, overall my fastball was OK. I threw the majority of strikes with that. Breaking ball and changeup, I couldn’t throw a strike with the curve and the changeup was erratic. ”

J.J. Cooper and Matt Eddy:

RP Addison Reed • White Sox, Triple-A Charlotte (International)

In a move straight out of the Dan Hudson playbook, Reed shot from the third round of the 2010 draft to Chicago in little more than a year, making ever-so-brief pit stops at all four levels of full-season ball this season. Reed’s minor league ratios may elicit a double-take—12.8 strikeouts, 1.6 walks, 4.9 hits per nine innings—but he backs them up with mid-90s heat and a power slider. The 22-year-old Reed naturally struck out eight of the first 21 big league batters to face him.

Here’s are Reed’s stats:

Pitch classifications provided by the Gameday Algorithm and may be inaccurate.Pitch Type LWTS correspond to how many runs were likely to score on a particular pitch based on average run expectancy when each pitch was thrown and what happened as a result. Negative scores indicate more effective pitches.Time to Plate is the time, in seconds, that it takes an average pitch of this type to reach the plate. This is strongly correlated with velocity, but also factors in movement.
