White Sox starter Samardzija still winless after fine performance
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The only reason White Sox new righty Jeff Samardzija could not be called a hard-luck loser Friday was that he personally did not lose. His team did, but that was certainly not his fault.

"When it's cold and stuff, it's hard to get that [velocity] you want," Samardzija said, per MLB.com "For me, it's putting my head in the grindstone and going forward. You can't dwell on the past in this game. I'm better than that, so I want to come out and show who I am -- and I think we're getting there."

Samardzija managed his best performance of the season after two sluggish outings. He cruised through eight innings and might have won had Tigers slugger Yoenis Cespedes not cranked a fourth-inning offering over the fence in left. He finished having yielded just one run on eight hits with no walks and seven strikeouts. He lowered his ERA from 6.23 to 4.29 in the process.

"It's just early in the year. Power pitchers take a little more time to get going," Samardzija said.

The still-winless Samardzija will have a tough task in his next start Wednesday when he matches up against the Indians and reigning Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber.

White Sox move up Jeff Samardzija, Chris Sale in pitching rotation
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

With the White Sox gearing up for a three-game series against the Tigers, manager Robin Ventura moved up Jeff Samardzija's start to Friday, with Chris Sale starting Saturday, reports ESPN.com.

The White Sox have an off day Thursday after their two-game series against the Indians and Ventura is considering starting Jose Quintana on Sunday.

"There's a possibility [Jose Quintana] comes back there," Ventura said. "There's an off day so you can see him making that one, or you can have Hector Noesi at that point. There's a chance to be able to do that. As of right now, we don't know who that's going to be -- it's to be determined at this point."

White Sox's Samardzija works past rough second inning in no-decision
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

White Sox starter Jeff Samardzija struck out six and pitched seven innings in a no-decision Saturday afternoon against the Twins.

Samardzija allowed a run-scoring triple to Chris Herrmann, run-scoring singles to Shane Robinson and Danny Santana and a run-scoring double to Brian Dozier -- all in the second inning. He bounced back with five scoreless frames to end his outing. He was charged with four earned runs on eight hits and no walks in a 5-4 victory.

"Going into the game I knew after yesterday I needed to go deep in the game, so I just needed to calm down and understand that the goal in the game was to give that bullpen a rest today," said Samardzija to MLB.com. "We only had to use two guys, so hey, we'll chalk that up as a plus but it's nice to know you can still get better."

Samardzija has allowed nine earned runs through his first 13 innings of work to start the season. He will square off against David Price and the Tigers on Friday.

White Sox's Jeff Samardzjia trying to fix command problems
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Although White Sox starting pitcher Jeff Samardzija walked just two batters in 21 1/3 innings this spring, he did have command issues in spring training, particularly with fastball location, per ESPN.

Some of his command problems followed him into Monday's season opener against the Royals, as he hit two batters and walked three in a 10-1 loss.

“I was pretty happy with everything,” Samardzija said. “Obviously the walks hurt. … It shows you how important it is to not give you free passes. Of everything, that upset me. You know they put the bat on the ball, found some green spots and that’s the way it goes sometimes. They had it working for them today but those walks, you’ve got to cut those out.”

Samardzija will be eyeing better results in his next start Saturday against the Twins.

“I’ve got to go back and look and add it all up and see what happened,” he said.
