Velasquez served up three home runs in the ugly outing, including a two-run blast by Giancarlo Stanton in the first inning. The veteran righty had lowered his ERA to 3.97 after allowing just one run in his previous two starts, but it jumped to 5.53 after Friday's game. He's sporting a 25:12 KBB through 27.2 innings on the year. Velasquez is expected to start in Kansas City next week.

  • Velasquez and the White Sox won't play against the Guardians on Wednesday after the game was postponed due to multiple positive COVID-19 tests within Cleveland's organization, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports. Velasquez was slated to make his sixth start of the season Wednesday. The White Sox will likely take increased precautions to make sure their players and staff aren't dealing with COVID-19 cases after playing two games against the Guardians, but it seems likely that Chicago will be able to play its upcoming series against the Yankees. As a result of the postponement, Velasquez is now scheduled to make his next start Friday against the Yankees, per Vinnie Duber of AllCHGO.com.

  • Velasquez (2-2) gave up one run on three hits and two walks while striking out two in five innings Friday against the Red Sox. He picked up the win. He didn't miss many bats in this one, but Velasquez cut his season ERA to 3.97 and still has a respectable 21 strikeouts in 22.2 innings. Lance Lynn (knee) is still at least a couple weeks away from returning, so Velasquez's spot in the rotation should be secure in the short term. He tentatively lines up to face Cleveland next week.

  • Velasquez won't start Friday against the Cubs since the game was postponed due to inclement weather, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports. The game will be made up via a doubleheader on Saturday, and Velasquez will presumably start one of those contests.
