Fight suspensions might get Carlos Rodon in White Sox rotation
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

White Sox rookie pitcher Carlos Rodon may end up getting his first career start, thanks to a bench clearing brawl. 

Jeff Samardzija and Chris Sale both received five game suspensions that would require them to miss a start. That means Rodon may be called on to fill in. 

"Certainly Carlos is stretched out and does have the ability to start should he be needed," general manager Rick Hahn said, per ESPN. "At the same time we need to balance that against keeping him on the current program [a long-man relief role], as well as some of the other potential alternatives we have within the system to make a spot start should we get to that point. So it is a possibility, but not one we are ready to commit to just at this time."

White Sox P Jeff Samardzija 'not proud' of brawl with Royals
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

White Sox pitcher Jeff Samardzija seemed at least somewhat regretful a day after leaving the bench to join a brawl with the Royals on Friday. 

"You're not happy about it, you're not proud of it," Samardzija said Friday, via CSN Chicago

Samardzija drew plenty of criticism for his role considering he wasn't pitching Thursday night, yet decided to engage in the scrum. According to the Chicago Tribune, multiple Royals players said they do not approve of Samardzija's demeanor in games.

"For me, I'm not a big fan of him," Lorenzo Cain said. "I don't know what the deal is.”

White Sox pitcher Chris Sale was also among those ejected in the game. He said he wants to turn the page, saying his team is "not a fight club," according to the Tribune

Five ejected from White Sox-Royals Thursday after brawl
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

A comebacker by White Sox outfielder Adam Eaton to Royals starter Yordano Ventura for the final out in the seventh inning ignited a benches-clearing brawl in Thursday's game between the two teams, resulting in five players getting ejected.

Ventura could be seen mouthing an expletive to Eaton, taking apparent umbridge with the comebacker or something that Eaton may have said on his way to first base. After the ruckus was finally settled, the umpires ejected Ventura along with outfielder Lorenzo Cain and pitcher Edinson Volquez. White Sox starter Chris Sale and teammate Jeff Samardzija were also hit with ejections, ending the night of both starting pitchers in one fell swoop.

Ventura, who was ejected for the second time this season and is likely facing a lengthy suspension, finished the night with two earned runs on five hits and one walk in seven innings along with eight strikeouts.

Sale threw 70 of his 99 pitches for strikes but managed to rack up just two strikeouts before being ejected. He also allowed two earned runs on nine hits and one walk in seven innings of work.

Play resumed in the top of the eighth inning with the two teams tied 2-2.

White Sox starter Samardzija escapes jams for first win
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

If it takes 113 pitches for Jeff Samardzija to complete six shutout innings and emerge with a win, he'll take it every time.

That's what he did Wednesday afternoon against the Indians to snag his first victory with the White Sox. He scattered six hits and worked his way out of jams to keep Cleveland off the board.

Samardzija allowed two baserunners in the second, loaded the bases in the third and put two more on base in the fourth before settling down. He finished with two walks, three strikeouts and a 3.33 ERA.

The right-hander is coming on strong after two mediocre starts. He has given up only one run in his last two outings covering 14 innings. He will try to remain on a roll Monday in Baltimore.

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.
