  • Cueto is the probable pitcher for Saturday's game against the Yankees. He will start on normal rest after stifling the Royals' offense Monday, but he will have a much tougher task against a Yankees offense that has a 120 wRC+ this season against right-handed pitching at home. It's unclear if the White Sox will go with a six-man rotation in the short term, but at least one pitcher will get bumped from the mix when Lance Lynn (knee) returns in June.

  • Cueto is listed as the White Sox's starting pitcher for Sunday's game against the Yankees in New York. The White Sox could have turned to Dylan Cease to take the hill for Sunday's game on his normal four days' rest, but Cueto will instead get a two-start week after he turned in an impressive debut Monday's win in Kansas City. Though he was saddled with a no-decision, Cueto shut out the Royals over six innings and struck out seven while allowing only four baserunners. He'll draw a much tougher matchup for the second leg of the two step, as the Yankees offense has produced an MLB-best .331 wOBA this season, which includes a .337 mark at Yankee Stadium.

  • Cueto yielded two hits and two walks over six shutout innings in Monday's win over the Royals. He struck out seven and did not factor in the decision. Cueto was in line to pick up the win in his White Sox debut before Kendall Graveman gave up three runs to tie the game in the eighth inning. Cueto retired the first nine batters he faced and only one Royal reached scoring position. He is projected for a tougher matchup this weekend when he takes the mound in Yankee Stadium.

  • The White Sox selected Cueto's contract from Triple-A Charlotte on Monday. He's scheduled to start Chicago's series opener in Kansas City, LaMond Pope of the Chicago Tribune reports. Chicago optioned infielder Danny Mendick to Charlotte to make room on the 26-man active roster for Cueto, who should have a full-time spot in the White Sox rotation at least until Lance Lynn (knee) returns from the 10-day injured list in early June. After he delayed signing with the White Sox until early April, Cueto essentially had to go through a modified spring training program before heading out on a minor-league rehab assignment to build up his arm. He turned in a 5.17 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 17:4 K:BB across 15.2 frames over four outings at Triple-A, most recently building up to 5.1 innings in his May 11 start for the affiliate. With that in mind, Cueto shouldn't face any major restrictions with his workload as he makes his White Sox debut Monday.

  • Cueto's will make at least one more start for Triple-A Charlotte, Scot Gregor of the Chicago Daily Herald reports. Cueto signed a minor-league deal with the White Sox in early April and has been building up in the minors after missing nearly all of camp. Chicago has yet to call him up despite the fact that Lance Lynn (knee) is expected to be out until early June, a decision that seems defensible given that Cueto has allowed seven runs in 10.1 innings across three starts for Charlotte. His deal has a May 15 opt-out, so the White Sox will have to make a decision soon on whether or not he'll be part of the rotation going forward.
