White Sox's Michael Kopech: Recommended for Tommy John surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kopech has a UCL tear and has been recommended for Tommy John surgery, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

While his top-end velocity hadn't quite been up to his usual levels in his past few starts, this still comes out of nowhere and is obviously devastating news for Kopech and the White Sox. Kopech is now facing the likelihood of missing all of 2019. The team released a statement confirming the report but said that Kopech will receive a second opinion before any decisions are made regarding surgery.

White Sox's Michael Kopech: Hit hard by Tigers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kopech (1-1) took the loss Wednesday as the Tigers tamed the White Sox 10-2, coughing up seven runs on nine hits -- including four home runs -- and a walk over 3.1 innings while striking out six.

The rookie was catching far too much of the plate on the night, and in total six of Detroit's nine hits went for extra bases. Chalk it up as a learning experience for Kopech, who still has a strong 15:2 K:BB through his first 14.1 big-league innings. He'll next take the mound Tuesday in Kansas City.

White Sox's Michael Kopech: Has rain-shortened start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kopech did not factor into the decision Friday when he allowed one hit and one walk while striking out one over three scoreless innings in a 6-1 win over the Red Sox.

For the second time in three starts, the young right-hander was forced to leave a start due to rain. Kopech was wild to start the night, hitting Mookie Betts with his first pitch and issuing a four-pitch walk to Andrew Benintendi, but settled in after picking off Betts. Kopech is next scheduled to pitch Wednesday at home against the Tigers.

White Sox's Michael Kopech: Collects first MLB win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kopech (1-0) allowed one run on seven hits while striking out four across six innings as he notched the victory Sunday against the Tigers.

In just his second career start, Kopech produced an impressive outing, as he managed to surrender just one run despite a fair amount of traffic on the bases. Although the sample size is small, Kopech has found success in the big leagues so far, allowing just one run on 10 hits while fanning eight over eight frames. The 22-year-old will face a tough Boston lineup his next time through the rotation, as he's slated to pitch Friday.

White Sox's Michael Kopech: Next start scheduled Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kopech, who made his major-league debut Tuesday, will next start Sunday against the Tigers, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Chicago was abuzz Tuesday for Kopech's debut, but many were disappointed that a 52-minute rain delay ended the flame-throwing right-hander's night after just two innings. He was pleased to throw all of his pitches for strikes and was most happy to be able to spot his changeup, a major final hurdle in his development at Triple-A Charlotte. "That I was able to throw the changeup with good command, good action and have them swing over it was probably the highlight of my night," Kopech said.
