  • White Sox's Dylan Cease: Whiffs nine in Tuesday's win

    Cease (4-1) picked up the win in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Royals, allowing seven hits and two walks over 5.2 scoreless innings. He struck out nine.

    The right-hander fired 94 pitches (61 strikes) in falling just short of his third quality start of the season, but it was still another dominant outing for Cease. He's struck out at least eight batters in each of his last five starts, posting a 2.93 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and stunning 48:10 K:BB through 27.2 innings over that stretch.

  • White Sox's Dylan Cease: Fans 11 but allows six runs

    Cease did not factor in the decision against the Yankees on Thursday, hurling four innings during which he gave up six runs on six hits and two walks while striking out 11.

    Cease racked up an impressive 20 swinging strikes among his 90 pitches and tied his season high with 11 punchouts, but he also surrendered his most runs of the campaign thus far. He was victimized by a pair of Giancarlo Stanton homers in the contest that accounted for four of the six runs against him. The right-hander had been excellent at keeping the ball in the park prior to Thursday, allowing just one homer over his first six starts. Despite the tough outing, Cease has been a solid fantasy asset this season, tying for the league lead with 58 strikeouts while posting a 3.55 ERA over 38 innings. HIs next start is scheduled to come in Kansas City early next week.

  • White Sox's Dylan Cease: Strikes out eight

    Cease allowed one earned run on four hits and three walks while striking out eight across five innings Saturday against Boston. He did not factor into the decision.

    Cease struggled to work efficiently as he needed 101 pitches to record 15 outs. However, he otherwise continued to showcase strong stuff, highlighted by 16 swinging strikes. Cease has now racked up at least eight strikeouts in all but one of his six starts this season and has maintained a 2.38 ERA with a 1.00 WHIP and a 47:13 K:BB across 34 innings.

  • White Sox's Dylan Cease: Electric over seven frames

    Cease (3-1) earned the win Tuesday after he pitched seven scoreless innings, giving up just one hit while striking out 11 batters against the Angels.

    Cease was almost perfect Monday, posting a season-high 11 strikeouts while allowing just one hit, a double by Taylor Ward in the fourth inning. It was his second straight quality start, and he now sports a 2.48 ERA and 0.93 WHIP with a very impressive 12.1 K/9. With Lance Lynn (knee) on the shelf, Cease has stepped up as a very effective No. 2 option in the rotation behind Lucas Giolito early this season.

  • White Sox's Dylan Cease: Strikes out nine

    Cease allowed two earned runs on three hits and three walks while striking out nine across six innings Wednesday against the Royals. He did not factor into the decision.

    Cease retired the first 13 batters he faced and did not allow a hit until the sixth inning. However, he did struggle a bit in his final frame, surrendering three hits and a walk while also throwing two wild pitches to account for his pair of earned runs. Nevertheless, it was a dominant outing for Cease, as he racked up 21 swinging strikes on 99 total pitches. He's now allowed two or fewer earned runs in three of his four appearances this season, which has translated to a 3.27 ERA and a 28:10 K:BB across 22 innings.

  • White Sox's Dylan Cease: Hit hard in Cleveland

    Cease (2-1) allowed four earned runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out three across 5.1 innings to take the loss Thursday against the Guardians.

    Cease surrendered his first home run of the season in the third inning to Franmil Reyes, which accounted for two of his earned runs. The trouble continued when he allowed six runners to reach base across his final 1.1 frames, resulting in two additional runs being scored. While Cease has largely been strong to begin the season, he has issued multiple free passes in all three of his starts so far. Even so, he has a strong 3.38 ERA with a 19:7 K:BB across 16 innings early on in the campaign.

  • White Sox's Dylan Cease: Nabs second win

    Cease (2-0) allowed one run on three hits and two walks over 5.2 innings Friday, striking out eight and earning a win over Tampa Bay.

    Cease cruised through five shutout frames with little pushback from the Rays' lineup. The 6-foot-2 righty then walked Brandon Lowe to begin the sixth inning and was later charged with that run when Aaron Bummer coughed up back-to-back two-out doubles. Cease now has a 1.69 ERA and 16:5 K:BB through 10.2 frames. He lines up to take the mound in Cleveland next week.

  • White Sox's Dylan Cease: Wins first start of 2022

    Cease (1-0) picked up the win after tossing five innings, surrendering one run on two hits and three walks while striking out eight in Saturday's 5-2 victory over the Tigers.

    Cease was extremely effective in his season debut, limiting the Tigers to just five baserunners while whiffing eight batters. The 26-year-old was pulled after he allowed a single to Austin Meadows to open the sixth inning and Meadows later scored on a Jeimer Candelario double off Reynaldo Lopez, proving to be the only blemish on Cease's performance. After producing a respectable 3.91 ERA and 1.25 WHIP with an electric 12.3 K/9 over 32 starts with the White Sox in 2021, he'll look to take another step up here in 2022.

  • White Sox's Dylan Cease: Getting start in opening series

    Cease is scheduled to start the White Sox's second game of the season Saturday in Detroit, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

    Cease wasn't a lock to get a start during the White Sox's season-opening series, but Lance Lynn's imminent knee surgery erased any doubt that the 26-year-old would make his 2022 debut in Detroit. The right-hander enjoyed something of a breakthrough campaign in 2021, going 13-7 with a 3.91 ERA and 1.25 WHIP over 165.2 innings while ranking fifth among all qualified pitchers with a 31.9 percent strikeout rate. Cease's mediocre 33.3 percent groundball rate and 9.6 percent walk rate were less than desirable, however, and until he makes improvements in those areas, he probably can't be counted on to take a major step forward in the ERA and WHIP categories.

  • White Sox's Dylan Cease: Quick hook in Game 3

    Cease didn't factor into the decision Sunday in the White Sox's 12-6 win over Astros in Game 3 of the ALDS after giving up three runs on two hits and three walks while striking out two in 1.2 innings.

    With the White Sox facing a 2-0 series deficit entering Sunday, manager Tony La Russa didn't take long to turn the game over to the bullpen while Cease was laboring in the second inning. Cease tossed only 20 of his 44 pitches for strikes and induced only three swings and misses before La Russa pulled the plug on him. Given the short outing, Cease should be available to pitch as soon as Wednesday's Game 5, but it's unclear if La Russa will be eager to go back to the right-hander after the rough postseason debut.

  • White Sox's Dylan Cease: Starting Game 3

    Cease will start Game 3 of the ALDS against the Astros on Sunday, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports.

    Cease dealt with a bruised right triceps late in the year but closed out the regular season on a high note, recording a 0.63 ERA and 1.12 WHIP in 14.1 innings across his last three starts. The right-hander will attempt to force a Game 4 during Sunday's home start.

  • White Sox's Dylan Cease: Whiffs five in no-decision

    Cease allowed one run on four hits and two walks while striking out five in four innings during Sunday's loss to the Tigers. He didn't factor into the decision.

    Cease exited his last start due to a bruised right triceps, but he was sharp in his return to the mound Sunday. The right-hander recorded a 0.63 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 24:2 K:BB in 14.1 innings across his final three starts of the regular season, and it wouldn't be surprising to see him factor into the team's postseason rotation plans.

  • White Sox's Dylan Cease: On target for Sunday start

    Cease (triceps) is in line to start Sunday's game against the Tigers, MLB.com reports.

    Cease is still dealing with a bruised right triceps, but White Sox manager Tony La Russa wants the 25-year-old to throw once more during the regular season in preparation for the playoffs. The right-hander left his most recent start Friday in Cleveland after getting hit by a comebacker.

  • White Sox's Dylan Cease: Doesn't expect to miss time

    Cease (triceps) doesn't expect to miss his next turn through the rotation, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    Cease was removed from Friday's game against Cleveland in the bottom of the sixth inning with a right triceps contusion that he sustained when he was hit by a comebacker. However, the right-hander downplayed the severity of the injury after the game and said he hopes to make one more start prior to the postseason. He'll presumably be monitored in the coming days to determine his availability, but he projects to make his next start at home against the Tigers next weekend.

  • White Sox's Dylan Cease: X-rays negative

    Cease was diagnosed with a right triceps contusion after he exited Friday's game against Cleveland, Scot Gregor of the Chicago Daily Herald reports.

    Cease was hit by a comebacker in the bottom of the sixth inning Friday and was removed from the game after a lengthy visit with trainers. The right-hander underwent X-rays that came back negative, and he's considered day-to-day. If the 25-year-old is cleared to make his next start, he tentatively lines up to take the mound at home against the Tigers on Friday.
