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.

The White Sox have signed 2011 25th round pick RHP Chris Devenski:

Bats: Right
Throws: Right
Height: 6’03″
Weight: 200
Born: 1990-11-13
Hometown: Santa Ana, CA
Class:  Junior

Devenski was assigned to Great Falls.

Baseball America’s scouting report:

So does Devenski, a converted shortstop who transferred from Golden West JC. He fell out of favor early in the year before coming on again a bit in the second half, though he had a 4.98 ERA in 22 innings through 15 appearances on the spring. Devenski ran his fastball up to 94 mph in the fall, but he’s been more 90-92 and straight this spring, and there were outings when he worked in the high 80s. His slider and changeup are serviceable.

Here are his College Stats:

Year ERA W-L APP-GS CG SHO/CBO SV IP H R ER BB SO 2B 3B HR AB B/Avg WP HBP BK SFA SHA
2011 4.98 2-0 15-0 0 0/1 2 21.2 29 12 12 8 26 9 1 0 88 .330 0 0 1 0 1

He was in Golden West College before:

Year ERA W-L APP-GS CG SHO/CBO SV IP H R ER BB SO 2B 3B HR AB B/Avg WP HBP BK SFA SHA

He tried swinging the bat (played SS) in Golden West too:
