Beck was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte on Friday, the Chicago Sun-Times' Daryl Van Schouwen reports. The 25-year-old righty was not in serious competition for a rotation spot out of camp, so it makes sense to re-assign him so that the other starters can get more work in. Beck should offer organizational rotation depth this season, but he will be behind at least Erik Johnson in the pecking order.
White Sox rookie pitcher Chris Beck has been placed on the disabled list with Triple-A Charlotte because of inflammation in his right elbow, per The Chicago Tribune. Beck, who made his major-league debut back in May, has a 3.15 ERA with 40 strikeouts and 14 walks in 54 1/3 innings with Charlotte. During his major-league debut, Beck allowed five earned runs on 10 hits in six innings. He was optioned back to Triple-A after the game.
White Sox right-hander Chris Beck, who made his Major League debut on Thursday, picked up the loss in the 6-3 defeat to the Orioles. Beck was recalled from Triple-A to start the second game of a doubleheader and went six innings in his debut. The 24-year-old allowed five runs (four earned) on 10 hits, while walking four and striking out three. He was visually nervous in his first time on a big-league mound, but all-in-all, it wasn't a bad performance. "I gave up a couple knocks here and there, but other than that, if I could erase that first two-run inning there, maybe it's a different story," Beck said, per MLB.com. He gave up two runs in the first and third innings, and one in the sixth, accounting for the damage against him. "He extended himself. He got into some jams, got out of some jams," manager Robin Ventura said. "They scored some runs and that's part of the big league experience. He gets up here and competes and throws strikes." Beck was optioned back to Triple-A Charlotte following Thursday's start. "Unfortunately, today I didn't get the job done," Beck said. "But like I said, it's something to build on, something to go back to Charlotte and work on. Work on consistency and commanding the zone, and hopefully come up here and get another shot at it to give the team a better chance to win next time."
