    • White Sox's Jake Petricka: Undergoes surgery Friday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Petricka underwent a nerve transposition and debridement of his right elbow Friday, Dan Hayes of NBC Sports Chicago reports. Petricka will be able to start throwing in about 3-4 months, which places him on an initial timeline for a spring training return. Dr. James Andrews performed the surgery, which moved the pitcher's nerve to a position that would not pinch or irritate his elbow. Petricka was put on the DL in early September with a right elbow strain, after posting a 7.01 ERA in 25.2 relief innings this season.

    • White Sox's Jake Petricka: Will throw on road
      By RotoWire Staff

      Petricka (elbow) will accompany the White Sox on their 10-game road trip and is scheduled to play catch at some point, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports. This is Petricka's third stint on the 10-day disabled list this season, and his 7.01 ERA doesn't have us anxiously awaiting his return to the active roster. The one thing of interest is that he's closed games in the past (14 saves in 2014), and for a team without a real closer, his experience could land him a late-inning role over the final weeks of the season.

      By RotoWire Staff

      Petricka was put on the 10-day DL with a right elbow strain, retroactive to Sept. 5. Petricka recorded two outs against the Indians on Monday, but hasn't pitched since, and will head to the shelf while recovering from an elbow injury. There hasn't been any word on a timetable at this point for Petricka, but he will be eligible to return to the club prior to the game in Detroit on Sept. 16.

    • White Sox's Jake Petricka: Blows save Wednesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Petricka (1-1) was charged with a loss and his first blown save of the season after giving up two runs on three hits without recording an out Wednesday against the Dodgers. It's been a rough start to August for Petricka, who has allowed eight runs through 5.1 innings (seven appearances) so far, raising his ERA to an unsightly 9.00 through 19 innings on the season. While the White Sox remain in a ninth-inning limbo following the trade of Tyler Clippard, it seems Petricka may have taken himself out of the discussion for the time being. In the meantime, Juan Minaya, who appears to be the best option to serve as closer, completed another scoreless outing.

    • Petricka (elbow) was activated from the 10-day DL on Wednesday. Petricka was able to complete three innings of rehab with Triple-A Charlotte over the past week, allowing just one hit while striking out two and shaking off the rust. He has been out since late June with elbow soreness, but figures to slide back into the bullpen with high-leverage opportunities looming for the right-hander. Although he hasn't earned regular save opportunities since the 2014 season, Petricka could earn some chances if Tyler Clippard cannot pin down the role.
