White Sox David Robertson helping Zach Putnam learn cutter
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

White Sox closer David Robertson learned the cutter from one of baseball's best practitioners of the pitch--Mariano Rivera. 

Robertson is now passing on that knowledge to Chicago bullpen-mate Zach Putnam

"I'm trying to have him impart some of that knowledge on to me as I develop that pitch as a third pitch," Putnam said, per MLB.com. "It was almost surreal listening to him talk yesterday. He was like, 'Mo holds his like this and does this with it,' and I'm like, 'I wish I had a camera to record all this so I have it for future reference.' But I'm trying to learn from him whenever I can."

White Sox pitcher Zach Putnam tosses straight scoreless appearance
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

White Sox pitcher Zach Putnam continues to make a push for a role in the bullpen. That journey continued Monday, throwing his fourth consecutive scoreless appearances after giving up eight runs over 3 2/3 innings in his first four games of spring training.

"I feel as if it's been there since the start of camp, but what changed was the frequency with which I was throwing it," Putnam said to MLB.com. "I was going into at-bats early on trying to kind of work on my fastball and polish my cutter just a little bit.

"When you are not fine with those pitches and guys are coming in taking massive hacks trying to hit homers, as they are sometime in Spring Training, I got hurt a lot. As soon as I figured it out and started throwing it more and setting up hitters the same way I set them up during the season, things fell into place for me."

White Sox P Zach Putnam hopes to earn bullpen role
by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

Coming off of a successful year in 2014, White Sox pitcher Zach Putnam has struggled in spring training, per MLB.com.

Putnam is looking to wrap up a spot on the team's bullpen roster for 2015. He finished last year with an ERA of 1.98 in 54 2/3 innings pitched. This spring has been different, as he has had a rough go of it with an ERA of 19.64 in only three innings pitched.

Manager Don Cooper is looking at the bigger picture.

"You never should go on Spring Training, good or bad," Cooper said. "For three or four innings, are we throwing out the [54 2/3] he got last year? That's silly.

"He's not where we want him to be. He's close. But it would be nice to see him go out there and have a couple of innings where he puts it all together. He's putting it together for hitters, but not for a full inning just yet."

Coming into spring training it appeared that Putnam would be a lock for a bullpen spot. His objectives have not changed as he battles to earn the role.

"Whether I'm in a position where I am in this year or a position like I have been in previous Spring Trainings, the objective is the same: Go out there and get guys out and prove to these guys that I'm the man for the job, whatever job that may be," Putnam said. "Whatever happens will happen.

"Nobody is bigger than the game. This is the ultimate humbler I guess, so coming off a good season last year, that stuff is in the past. Right now for us and guys who are struggling a little bit statistically, just put that stuff out of your mind and just focus on what you're doing, focus on your craft, which is what we're all just trying to do right now."
