Zach Putnam to resume mound work Friday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

White Sox pitcher Zach Putnam is scheduled to resume mound work Friday, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Putnam doesn't think he'll need all 15 days to recover from shoulder inflammation after being placed on the disabled list this week. He is set for rest and treatment over the next few days before beginning long toss. Putnam has earned three saves while posting a 2.35 ERA and 32:15 K:BB ratio in 38 1/3 innings.

Zach Putnam hits the disabled list
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

White Sox pitcher Zach Putnam has been placed on the disabled list with a shoulder issue.

Putnam is dealing with right shoulder inflammation. Putnam had a stretch from late-June to mid-July where he gave up a run every other outing, but is coming off three straight scoreless appearances. Putnam has a 2.35 ERA over 38 1/3 innings.

Your daily White Sox closer assessment
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

You may recall White Sox manager Robin Ventura had this to say after Zach Putnam bailed out Jake Petricka with two outs in the ninth inning Saturday for his second save in as many days:

"Unfortunately, I don't have a guy that you're just going to leave out there, saying that's your closer," Ventura said.

But the second half of that quote may actually say more:

"I like Put's swing-and-miss ability with some lefties, and that's the reason."

"Put," of course, is Putnam, who struck out left-handed hitter Jason Castro with two runners on to secure the save Saturday. But looking back on it, the most interesting part of Putnam bailing out Petricka is that it happened immediately after the second out, not after the second runner reached base. If a right-handed hitter was due up instead of Castro, Ventura may have just let Petricka finish out the inning.

Which explains why Ventura went back to Petricka in the ninth inning Monday. Two right-handed hitters were due up.

After weeks of trying to discern what's happening at the back end of the White Sox bullpen, we may finally have an answer: It's a lefty-righty platoon. Considering they're not so great individually anyway, perhaps you should leave both Putnam and Petricka for the deepest of Rotisserie leagues.

Zach Putnam pulls ahead of Jake Petricka?
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

White Sox reliever Zach Putnam recorded two saves this weekend, but only the first was conventional. He struck out two in a perfect ninth inning against the Astros Friday. 

Manager Robin Ventura handed the ball to Jake Petricka in the ninth inning of a one-run game Saturday, but after he put two on, Ventura turned to Putnam, who struck out Jason Castro to end the game.

Ventura wouldn't commit to a single closer after the game, but Saturday wasn't the first time Petricka faltered in a high-leverage situation this month. His poor outing July 9 contributed to a come-from-behind win for the Red Sox. Ventura did say he prefers Putnam against left-handed batters, which would support a platoon, but I get the sense Putnam is beginning to distinguish himself.

As I wrote in my latest post to the Fantasy Baseball Today blog breaking down the more questionable closer situations in baseball, he's the reliever to own for the White Sox right now.

ChiSox leaning on two relievers in save opportunities
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Sunday relievers Zach Putnam and Jake Petricka are the top candidates to be used in save situations, according to MLB.com. Putnam picked up saves Friday and Saturday against the Astros, and Petricka has three saves this season.
