  • Michael Soroka Could Stay In Bullpen

    Headshot for Michael Soroka

    The Chicago White Sox have an opening in their starting rotation after they designated right-hander Brad Keller for assignment, but manager Pedro Grifol didn't sound like he was jumping at the chance to give right-hander Michael Soroka another shot in the rotation. "Soroka had a good [relief] appearance, but I don't know if he's going to be the guy we want to do that. "We'll make that move when we have to, which would be Wednesday-Thursday," Grifol said. The 26-year-old Soroka was recently demoted to the bullpen, but he looked much better in a long-relief role on Saturday, tossing four scoreless innings while striking out seven. However, he did walk four and has surrendered 33 runs (31 earned) on 42 hits (10 home runs) while walking 24 and striking out 24 in 43 2/3 innings in his nine starts. We don't blame the White Sox for being hesitant to go back to Soroka as a starter.

  • Michael Soroka Removed From Chicago's Rotation

    Headshot for Michael Soroka

    Chicago White Sox manager Pedro Grifol said that right-hander Michael Soroka is being removed from the starting rotation. But instead of being cut or demoted to the minors, Soroka will be moved to the bullpen. The 26-year-old has posted a 6.39 ERA (6.74 FIP) and 1.51 WHIP with 24 walks and 24 strikeouts in 43 2/3 innings over nine starts. He currently leads the league in earned runs allowed (31) and home runs allowed (10), which shows even further how ineffective he had been before the demotion to a relief role. Soroka will be put into a long-relief role for the time being and will need to pitch much better than he has in order to be considered a rotation option for the Pale Hose later this season. Right-hander Brad Keller is taking Soroka's rotation spot and will now become an option in AL-only leagues.

  • Michael Soroka Posts Quality Start

    Headshot for Michael Soroka

    Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Michael Soroka pitched well, but suffered a loss versus the Kansas City Royals on Thursday. The right-hander bounced back from a rough first start of the season and tossed a quality start. In six innings, Soroka allowed six hits, two runs, no walks and struck out two. Soroka has been sidelined with a bevy of injuries the past few seasons, but does own a career 3.40 ERA. He won't have many opportunities to pick up victories on a bad White Sox team and doesn't offer much in terms of strikeouts which lowers his value. His best value is as a streamer in favorable matchups for now. Next up for Soroka will be a division battle against the Cleveland Guardians.
