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: Throws two scoreless in MLB debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kopech struck out four in two scoreless innings Tuesday against the Twins, issuing three hits and no walks.

Kopech made his MLB debut Tuesday, throwing 52 pitches (35 strikes) in the start while allowing no extra-base hits and hitting a batter. Kopech came advertised as a strikeout pitcher -- having struck out 170 batters in 126.1 innings playing for Triple-A Charlotte this year -- and he delivered on that front in the short outing. The 22-year-old went 7-7 with a 3.70 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP in 24 starts for the minor-league club prior to his promotion, and he figures to remain with the White Sox pitching staff for the remainder of the year.

White Sox's Michael Kopech: Recalled ahead of MLB debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kopech was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte on Tuesday to start against the Twins.

As expected, Kopech was summoned from the minors ahead of his highly-anticipated big-league debut. The flamethrowing 22-year-old compiled a 3.70 ERA and 170:60 K:BB across 24 starts (126.1 innings) with the Knights prior to earning a promotion. Kopech has struggled with his command at times, but he's shown improvement over his last seven starts, walking just four while striking out 59. Even if his ERA and WHIP aren't stellar in his first go around with the White Sox, he has the potential to provide a serious strikeout boost to fantasy owners over the stretch run.

White Sox's Michael Kopech: Set for debut Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kopech will make his major-league debut Tuesday against the Twins.

Kopech, part of the package which sent Chris Sale to the Red Sox prior to the 2017 season, has long been seen as a flamethrower whose command may hold him back from reaching his frontline starter ceiling. A quick glance at his season line suggests that's still the case, as his walk rate sits at a worryingly high 11.1 percent in 24 starts for Triple-A Charlotte. He hasn't walked a single batter in his last three starts, however, and has walked a total of just four in his last seven, striking out 59 over that stretch. He has the potential to provide a major strikeout boost to fantasy owners down the stretch, even if his ERA and WHIP are mediocre.
