Jeff Samardzija on free agency: 'I'm not looking for top dollar'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

As long as White Sox starting pitcher Jeff Samardzija doesn't suffer an injury or has a poor season in 2015, he is expected to land a megadeal in free agency next offseason, according to The Chicago Tribune.

Max Scherzer, James Shields and Jon Lester all received massive contracts this past offseason, and Samardzija could be in the same ballpark.

“I’m not looking for top dollar,” Samardzija said. ”For me, it’s good to see those guys are compensated. But I think if you look at maybe outside of Shields, who maybe didn’t get his first choice, you look at Jon and Max and couple other guys, the big thing for them is they went somewhere they wanted to go to, and they were excited about where they were going to.

“So for me, it’s about taking this time to watch other teams, watch everything essentially and soak it all in. A lot of things change in a year, so when you’re in that situation, it’s a long-term commitment you’re making, so you want to make sure it’s the right one.’’

White Sox name Jeff Samardzija Opening Day starter
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

White Sox manager Robin Ventura has named pitcher Jeff Samardzija as the team's Opening Day starter for April 6 against the Royals, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

The move comes as expected with Chris Sale sidelined for the opener. Samardzija has delivered mediocre spring numbers, allowing nine earned runs in 11 1/3 innings while managing just six strikeouts, but he's coming off a season in which he went 7-13 with a 2.99 ERA and 202:43 K:BB ratio in 219 2/3 innings.

White Sox to start season with Jeff Samardzija, Jose Quintana?
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

White Sox starting pitcher Jeff Samardzija told reporters he's not concerned about his chances of taking Chris Sale's spot as Chicago's Opening Day starter, according to Chicago Sun Times

"No, I just need to know the day of," Samardzija said. "Some of my best starts were when I showed up and they said you're pitching today. It doesn't really matter to me. Probably the less time you get the better, that way the less time you stay in bed thinking about it and staying up all night."

Although manager Robin Ventura has yet to name his starter for Day, Jose Quintana may have tipped his hand, telling reporters he expects to see the ball in Day 2.

"It's a little different because it's the first one, right?" Samardzija said. "You're not in midseason form but the spotlight is so bright you need to be in midseason form, so in that sense it's a little weird."

White Sox pitcher Jeff Samardzija surrenders three homers Sunday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

White Sox starting pitcher Jeff Samardzija gave up three home runs over 4 1/3 innings pitched Sunday, but hit a more important milestone: 75 pitches, according to ESPN.com.

"That's OK; it just happens," Samardzija said, mentioning the Milwaukee Brewers' spring ballpark, known for being a launching pad. "You make some pitches and those things happen."

Of his 76 pitches, 49 went for strikes.

"I felt like I could have kept going; I felt real good," Samardzija said. "We've been extending it down in warm-ups and throwing a lot of pitches. It's all about stretching out and making sure your endurance is up, so when you need to go 100 or 120, you can do it."

Manager Robin Ventura continues to play coy on naming the Opening Day starter.

"I'm getting closer (to an announcement)," Ventura said. "Not right now. I'm getting closer. … There's just no reason to do it. I don’t plan on changing my mind, there’s just no reason to do it."
