  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Charged with loss Sunday

    Lopez (4-4) allowed three runs on three hits and a walk in a third of an inning to take the loss against the Tigers on Sunday.

    Lopez entered Sunday's game to preserve a tie in the top of the ninth inning, but he gave up a home run to lead off the frame before allowing two more runs to come across prior to his removal. The right-hander allowed at least two runs in five of his last six outings of the regular season, and he'll likely pitch out of the bullpen during the playoffs.

  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Earns easy win Tuesday

    Lopez (4-3) allowed one run on two hits while striking out four over six innings as he got the win over the Reds on Tuesday.

    Outside of a fifth-inning home run from Eugenio Suarez, Lopez held the Reds in check after allowing just one other hit and not walking a batter. Tuesday was his first win since Aug. 27 and his first time going more than five innings all year. Despite making nine starts this year, Lopez will likely be used out of the bullpen in the postseason unless it's an emergency situation. The 27-year-old has had a fantastic bounceback season with a 2.98 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 55:12 K:BB over 57.1 innings.

  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Lifted after 3.1 frames

    Lopez allowed two runs on four hits and no walks while striking out four across 3.1 innings during the front end of Thursday's twin bill against Cleveland. He did not factor into the decision.

    It was yet another rough outing for Lopez, who managed to quiet Cleveland's bats over the first two frames. However, he eventually was hurt by the long ball, surrendering a solo homer to Bobby Bradley in third and solo shot to Austin Hedges in the fourth. That would be the end of the 65-pitch day for the right-hander, whose offense went on a power surge to secure the team's victory. Lopez is expected to remain in the rotation for another turn, which tentatively lines up at home next week against the Reds.

  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Wednesday's game called off

    Lopez and the White Sox won't play Wednesday against the Tigers after the game was postponed due to inclement weather, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    Wednesday's contest will be made up Monday. The White Sox haven't yet revealed their updated rotation plans, but it wouldn't be surprising to see Lopez pitch in one of the team's games against Cleveland this weekend.

  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Falters versus Angels

    Lopez (3-3) gave up seven runs (six earned) on seven hits and a walk over four innings Thursday to take the loss against the Angels. He had seven strikeouts.

    The seven strikeouts matched his season high, but Lopez was otherwise ineffective in what was his worst start since joining the rotation back on Aug. 11. He gave up a pair of two-run homers to the light-hitting Luis Rengifo and Jose Rojas, and he needed 81 pitches to record only 12 outs. Chicago is going with a six-man rotation for the rest of the regular season, so Lopez is scheduled to face the Tigers on the road next week. He'll try to snap a skid of four straight starts without a victory.

  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Sticking in six-man rotation

    The White Sox are expected to use a six-man rotation over the rest of the season, which will allow Lopez to make a few more starts, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    The goal will be to give Carlos Rodon extended rest between starts in advance of the postseason. Lopez, who lines up to start Thursday against the Angels, has a 3.00 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 18 strikeouts in 24 innings as a starter this season.

  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Takes second loss

    Lopez (3-2) was charged with the loss Thursday against the A's after allowing three runs (one earned) on six hits and three walks while striking out two across five innings.

    It wasn't his best outing, but Lopez held things in check enough to give the White Sox a chance. Unfortunately, he failed to receive run support from his teammates while also dealing with defensive woes. The right-hander may not receive another chance in the rotation next week with Lucas Giolito (hamstring) and Lance Lynn (knee) nearing their returns from the injured list. Across 16 appearances (six starts) this season, Lopez is sporting a 2.05 ERA and 0.84 WHIP.

  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Draws another start

    Lopez is scheduled to start Thursday's game against the Athletics in Oakland, LaMond Pope of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    With Lucas Giolito (hamstring) and Lance Lynn (knee) on the injured list and Carlos Rodon's (general soreness) next start in flux, Lopez will draw a second straight turn through the rotation in what will be his sixth start of the season with Chicago. Over his previous five starts, Lopez has submitted a 3.32 ERA while striking out 16 and holding opposing batters to a .200 average in 19 innings.

  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Hurls four innings in no-decistion

    Lopez did not factor in the decision against Kansas City on Saturday, allowing three runs on three hits and one walk over four innings. He struck out one batter.

    Lopez entered the contest fresh off five perfect relief innings his last time out, but he was much less effective Saturday. The right-hander was given an early 6-0 lead but gave half of the lead back in the third frame, with two runs coming on a long ball by Salvador Perez. Lopez's ERA rose to a still-superb 2.08, and there's a chance that he could make another start depending on the status of Lucas Giolito, who is currently dealing with a hamstring injury. if Giolito is able to come back in time for his next start, Lopez will likely return to the bullpen.

  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Entering rotation Saturday

    White Sox manager Tony La Russa said Lopez will start Saturday's game against the Royals, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    After striking out seven in five perfect frames last Friday against the Cubs in his return to the bullpen, Lopez will step back into the rotation during the upcoming weekend as a replacement for Lance Lynn (knee), who was placed on the injured list Tuesday. Lynn is only expected to miss one turn through the rotation, but Lopez could have the opportunity to pick up another start after Saturday if Lucas Giolito is slow to recover from the hamstring injury he sustained Tuesday.

  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Throws five perfect relief innings

    Lopez (3-1) earned the win Friday over the Cubs. He threw five perfect innings and struck out seven.

    The right-hander has bounced between the bullpen and the rotation this season. Lopez provided excellent length in a relief assignment after starter Dallas Keuchel was shelled for six runs (five earned) in the first inning of Friday's 17-13 crosstown slugfest. Through 34 innings, Lopez has a 1.59 ERA, 0.71 WHIP and 37:7 K:BB. He still threw just 59 pitches (40 strikes), but the 27-year-old has been an effective innings-eater in the bullpen while holding his own in four starts this year, as he's yet to allow more than three runs in any appearance.

  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Yields three runs in loss

    Lopez (2-1) allowed three runs on six hits over four innings Sunday, striking out four and taking a loss against the Rays.

    All three runs against Lopez came in the first three innings, including a two-run third by Tampa Bay. It was his first outing this season in which he allowed more than one run in an outing, and he was tagged with his first loss as a result. The 6-foot-1 righty still owns a 1.86 ERA and a 30:7 K:BB through 29 innings. With Carlos Rodon (shoulder) expected back soon, Lopez could be headed back to the bullpen.

  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Cruises through five innings in win

    Lopez (2-0) earned the win over Oakland on Tuesday, pitching five scoreless innings during which he allowed one hit and two walks while striking out four.

    The right-hander gave up only one hit in the outing -- a Matt Chapman single in the second inning that was immediately wiped out by a double play. He was held out from going deeper into the contest because he is still building up his pitch count, but Lopez nonetheless lasted long enough to pick up his second win of the campaign. He has looked dominant since returning to the rotation to fill in for the injured Carlos Rodon (shoulder), pitching a total of eight scoreless frames in which he has given up just two hits while striking out eight. Lopez could get another start this weekend at Tampa Bay.

  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Two-start week likely awaits

    Lopez is scheduled to start Tuesday's game against the Athletics at Guaranteed Rate Field, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

    As expected, Lopez will make a second turn through the rotation as a replacement for Carlos Rodon (shoulder), who is expected to spend more than the minimum 10 days on the injured list after being deactivated last week. Though Chicago could have turned to All-Star Lance Lynn to start Tuesday after his last outing came in Thursday's win over the Yankees in the "Field of Dreams" game, he'll instead get an extra day of rest, clearing the way for Lopez to take the hill for the second game of the series with Oakland. Lopez -- who struck out four over three scoreless frames in last week's start against the Twins -- could push his pitch count up to the 60-to-75 range versus Oakland. He'll tentatively line up for his second start of the week Aug. 22 in Tampa Bay.

  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: In line for another start

    Lopez could start in place of Carlos Rodon (shoulder) the next turn through the rotation, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Lopez filled in Wednesday with Rodon placed on the injured list and expected to be sidelined beyond the 10-day minimum. If manager Tony La Russa sticks with Lopez, who pitched three scoreless innings Wednesday, the start is expected to come during the three-game series against Oakland that runs from Tuesday to Thursday next week.

  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Works three innings in spot start

    Lopez allowed a hit and two walks with four strikeouts over three scoreless innings in a no-decision versus Minnesota on Wednesday.

    The 27-year-old was making a spot start after Carlos Rodon (shoulder) was placed on the injured list. Lopez pitched well, throwing 30 of 51 pitches for strikes while covering the most innings of any Chicago pitcher in the contest. He's mainly worked out of the bullpen this season with a 1.35 ERA, 0.75 WHIP and 22:5 K:BB across 20 innings. It seems more likely Lopez will return to the bullpen rather than stay in the rotation long-term.

  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Getting spot start Wednesday

    Lopez will start Wednesday's game against the Twins in Minnesota, Vinnie Duber of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Over his five seasons with the White Sox, Lopez has picked up 82 starts, but he's found a niche as a high-leverage reliever in his eight appearances out of the bullpen in 2021, logging a 1.29 ERA in 14 innings while limiting opposing hitters to a .146 average. He'll be thrust into starting duty on short notice while the White Sox rejigger their pitching schedule following Carlos Rodon's (shoulder) move to the IL, but expect the White Sox to limit Lopez's workload. He'll be pitching on two days' rest and hasn't covered more than three innings since getting a call-up from Triple-A Charlotte in mid-July, so Lopez shouldn't be expected to go through the Minnesota batting order more than once. Michael Kopech -- who hasn't pitched since Saturday -- could be a candidate to work multiple innings behind Lopez.

  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Eats innings in bullpen

    Lopez allowed one hit and struck out four over three scoreless relief innings in Sunday's 2-1 win over Cleveland.

    It was a modified bullpen day for the White Sox, who called up Jimmy Lambert to start and got by with a string of relievers after that. Lopez has been an innings eater for the pale hose since his call up from Triple-A, pitching more than an inning in five of seven appearances. He has a 1.29 ERA over 14 innings and should be a prime candidate for a spot start or as a piggy-back starter when manager Tony La Russa wants to give the established rotation members a break.

  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Tosses three innings

    Lopez allowed two runs (one earned) on two hits and a walk over three innings during a win over the Twins in Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader. He struck out three and did not factor in the decision.

    Lopez gave up a run on a Josh Donaldson sacrifice fly in the first inning but the only earned run he allowed was a solo blast by Mitch Garver in the second. It was his first big-league start during the 2021 campaign after producing a 7.62 ERA in 10 Triple-A starts before his promotion earlier this month. He'll likely slide back to the bullpen but could make spot starts for the White Sox as needed.
