The White Sox have outrighted right-handed starter Hector Noesi to Triple-A Charlotte eight days after designating him for assignment. Noesi, who was banished to the bullpen in late May, earned the demotion by losing all four decisions this season and compiling a 6.89 ERA.
The White Sox recalled pitcher Scott Carroll from Triple-A Charlotte on Thursday. To clear a roster spot, pitcher Hector Noesi was designated for assignment. Noesi went 0-4 with a 6.89 ERA in 10 outings (five starts) for Chicago. Carroll is 1-1 with a 3.12 ERA in eight relief appearances for Chicago this season.
White Sox starter Hector Noesi suffered a loss to Toronto on Monday, dropping to 0-4 on the season. "I'm here to start. That's what I want to prove to anybody, that I can start," he said, per MLB.com. Noesi has lost seven straight decisions dating back to last August. He allowed five runs on five hits over seven innings. Noesi walked three, struck out four and was victimized for two home runs. His next start is scheduled for Saturday at Houston.
White Sox manager Robin Ventura said rookie pitcher Carlos Rodon will be skipped his next time through the rotation. The left-handed Rodon has made three starts following three relief appearances so far this season, and has a 4.03 ERA in 22 1/3 innings. Rodon was scheduled to start next on Monday in Toronto, but that will now go to Hector Noesi, according to ESPN.com. The team has not revealed when Rodon will make his next start.
Carlos Rodon will get his second career start for the White Sox on Friday at Oakland. Rodon pitches in the rotation spot of Hector Noesi, who left his last start, on Saturday, after being struck in the hip by a line drive.
