  • White Sox's Matt Foster: Earns first save

    Foster walked one in a scoreless inning to earn the save in a 5-4 win over the Guardians in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader.

    Liam Hendriks pitched in the matinee and took the loss, so he was unavailable for the nightcap. Foster was able to protect a one-run lead despite throwing only seven of 15 pitches for strikes, earning his first save of the season. The right-hander has allowed five runs (four earned) in eight innings in July, and he owns a mediocre 4.97 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 37:13 K:BB while adding five holds and a 1-2 record in 38 innings overall.

  • White Sox's Matt Foster: Back on bereavement leave

    The White Sox placed Foster on the bereavement list Sunday, LaMond Pope of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Foster is on bereavement leave for the second time this season; he was previously away from the team for four days in late April to address a personal matter. The White Sox called up outfielder Adam Haseley from Triple-A Charlotte to join the 26-man active roster as a replacement for Foster, who has turned in a 5.13 ERA and 1.37 WHIP across 26.1 innings out of the bullpen in 2022.

  • White Sox's Matt Foster: Back with team

  • White Sox's Matt Foster: Heads to bereavement list

  • White Sox's Matt Foster: Called up from minors

    The White Sox recalled Foster from Triple-A Charlotte on Thursday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    Foster was initially optioned to Triple-A on April 1, but the White Sox will bring him back from the minors less than a week later after reliever Ryan Burr (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday. While he's up with the big club, Foster will likely be limited to low-leverage work out of Chicago's bullpen.

  • White Sox's Matt Foster: Optioned to Triple-A

    Foster was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte on Friday.

    Foster threw 39 innings for the White Sox last season but struggled to a 6.00 ERA. He could return when the team needs bullpen depth, but it's no surprise to see him off the roster to start the year.

  • White Sox's Matt Foster: Back with Chicago

    The White Sox recalled Foster from Triple-A Charlotte on Sunday.

    The righty was optioned to the minors Thursday after allowing two runs in 1.1 innings of relief. In fact, Foster has allowed seven earned runs in his last 4.2 innings dating back to Aug. 15, so he shouldn't see much, if any high-leverage work during this latest stint on the big-league roster.

  • White Sox's Matt Foster: Returned to Triple-A

    Foster was returned to Triple-A Charlotte after Thursday's doubleheader against Cleveland.

    Foster was up as the 29th man for the doubleheader, so this move was procedural. He threw 1.1 innings Thursday, surrendering two earned runs on a walk and two hits. For the season, Foster has a 6.32 ERA with a 40:13 K:BB across 37 innings with the White Sox.

  • White Sox's Matt Foster: Up as extra man

    Foster was called up to serve as the 29th man for Thursday's doubleheader against Cleveland, Vinnie Duber of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Foster gives the team an additional bullpen option. He hasn't been good in 35.2 major-league innings this season, struggling to a 6.06 ERA, so he'll likely be limited to lower-leverage situations.

  • White Sox's Matt Foster: Optioned to Triple-A

    Foster was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte on Monday.

    Foster had been in the big-league bullpen since Wednesday. Both his appearances in his latest stint in the majors went poorly, as he allowed three runs on five hits over 2.1 innings of work. Jimmy Lambert was called up to take his place on the roster.

  • White Sox's Matt Foster: Makes return to Pale Hose

    The White Sox recalled Foster from Triple-A Charlotte on Wednesday.

    With Reynaldo Lopez expected to move into the rotation following Lance Lynn's (knee) placement on the injured list Tuesday, Foster will help restore some depth in the bullpen. Foster has found limited success over his 31 appearances with the big club this season, churning out a 5.67 ERA and 1.41 WHIP in 33.1 innings.

  • White Sox's Matt Foster: Heads to Charlotte

    The White Sox optioned Foster to Triple-A Charlotte on Monday.

    Foster worked an inning out of the bullpen in both of the past two days and wasn't likely to be available for Monday's series opener versus Oakland, so Chicago will swap him off the active roster for a fresh relief arm in right-hander Ryan Burr, who was recalled from Charlotte. The 26-year-old Foster has mostly worked in middle relief this season, compiling a 5.67 ERA in 33.1 innings across 31 appearances.

  • White Sox's Matt Foster: Recalled by White Sox

    Foster was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte on Wednesday.

    Foster returned to the minors Friday, but he'll return to the major-league club after Carlos Rodon (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day injured list. The right-hander has made 28 relief appearances for the White Sox this year, and he's posted a 5.64 ERA and 1.38 WHIP in 30.1 innings.

  • White Sox's Matt Foster: Returns to minors

    Foster was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte on Friday.

    The right-hander was promoted to the majors on Tuesday and delivered two scoreless frames in his lone appearance before being sent back down. Overall Foster has a 5.64 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 33:10 K:BB over 30.1 innings for the White Sox this season.

  • White Sox's Matt Foster: Back in big leagues

    The White Sox recalled Foster from Triple-A Charlotte on Tuesday.

    Foster will fill the spot on the White Sox's 26-man active roster that opened up when Jimmy Lambert was optioned to Triple-A on Monday. Through 27 appearances out of the Chicago bullpen this season, Foster has delivered a 6.04 ERA and 1.45 WHIP.

  • White Sox's Matt Foster: Heads back down

    Foster was returned to Triple-A Charlotte following Monday's doubleheader against the Twins. He allowed one run on two hits and struck out one over two innings in Game 2.

    Foster was brought up for the twin bill as the 27th man, and after firing 20 pitches Monday night, he'll go right back down to the minors.

  • White Sox's Matt Foster: Up as extra man

    Foster was recalled to serve as the 27th man for Monday's doubleheader against the Twins.

    Foster has struggled to a 6.15 ERA in 26.1 innings at the big-league level this season. His 26.9 percent strikeout rate and 7.6 percent walk rate are both better than average, but his very low 26.7 percent groundball rate has led to an inflated 2.4 HR/9. He'll likely be limited to low-leverage opportunities during his time with the team, which might only last one day if he's sent down following the doubleheader.

  • White Sox's Matt Foster: Demoted to Triple-A

    Foster was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte on Friday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    The right-hander impressed as a rookie last year with a 2.20 ERA, 0.87 WHIP and 31:9 K:BB across 28.2 innings, but he's struggled to find that form in 2021. Foster has a 6.15 ERA this season and will head to Triple-A in an attempt to straighten things out.

  • White Sox's Matt Foster: Picks up two-out save

    Foster picked up the save Sunday against the Orioles after tossing a scoreless two-thirds of an inning.

    The White Sox used their regular closer, Liam Hendriks, in the ninth inning so other relievers had to be called on when the game went to extra frames. Foster was credited with the save after recording the final two outs of the game, but he's not slated to see any late-inning work unless it's absolutely necessary. He got off to an impressive start to the season before the wheels came off, though he seems to be turning things around with back-to-back scoreless outings for the first time since mid-May.
