  • Kopech was activated from the paternity list Friday, LaMond Pope of the Chicago Tribune reports. The 26-year-old left the White Sox on Tuesday and will return without missing a start, as expected. Kopech lines up to take the mound Sunday against the Yankees, with Dallas Keuchel and Johnny Cueto poised to start the first two games of the series.

  • The White Sox placed Kopech on the paternity list Tuesday. Kopech will be away from the team for up to three days while he witnesses the birth of his child. After making his most recent start Sunday, Kopech wouldn't have been in line to make his next start until Friday in New York anyway, so his placement on the paternity list shouldn't affect his availability this week. The White Sox are expected to return Lucas Giolito (illness) from the COVID-19 injured list to start Wednesday in Kansas City, so Kopech could end up getting an additional day of rest to make his next start Saturday, which would also come against the Yankees.

  • Kopech (0-1) allowed three runs on one hit and four walks over six innings Sunday, striking out three and taking a loss against the Yankees. Kopech looked solid for most of Sunday's outing, but he lost his command in the second inning. All five Yankees that reached base against him did so in the second as Kopech walked in a pair of runs and allowed another on a wild pitch. The other five innings in his start were all perfect. The 26-year-old righty is sporting a 1.54 ERA through 35 frames. Kopech is expected to get a rematch on the road against the Yankees next weekend.

  • Kopech allowed one unearned run on two hits and two walks over six innings in Monday's loss to Cleveland. He struck out seven and did not factor in the decision. Kopech coughed up a run on a fielding error in the first inning before keeping the Guardians off the board for the next five frames. It was his longest outing of the year and he lowered his season ERA to 0.93 through 29 innings. The 6-foot-3 righty has yet to allow more than two runs in any of his six outings to date. Kopech is lined up to face the Yankees at home this weekend.

  • Kopech struck out five in four scoreless innings, allowing four hits and two walks in a 3-1 win Tuesday over the Cubs. He did not factor into the decision. Kopech allowed multiple baserunners in three of the four innings he pitched but was able to get out of trouble each time. He left the game after tossing 83 pitches. The 26-year-old has an excellent 1.17 ERA in 23 innings this season, not allowing more than two runs in any start and not yet giving up a homer. Over his first five starts, however, he has struggled with control, walking 4.3 batters per nine innings. His next start will likely be early next week against Cleveland.
