White Sox's Zack Burdi: Returns to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burdi was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte on Friday.

Burdi has been in the majors the past two weeks and will head back to Triple-A after surrendering five runs (four earned) on nine hits with three strikeouts and three walks over six innings. The right-hander hasn't fared much better at Charlotte this season with a 5.59 ERA and 1.63 WHIP across nine appearances.

White Sox's Zack Burdi: Recalled by White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burdi was recalled by the White Sox on Thursday.

Burdi has spent most of the year with Triple-A Charlotte and has posted a 5.59 ERA and 1.63 WHIP in 9.2 innings across nine relief appearances. The right-hander has made just one appearance with the major-league club in 2021 but should be available as a low-leverage reliever in the near future after outfielder Adam Eaton (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day injured list.

White Sox's Zack Burdi: Sent back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burdi was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte after Saturday's doubleheader against the Orioles.

The 26-year-old was recalled to serve as the 27th man for Saturday's twin bill, and he'll return to Triple-A without appearing in either contest. Burdi allowed one run on three hits with three strikeouts and one walk over three innings during his lone big-league appearance this season.

White Sox's Zack Burdi: Called up as 27th man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burdi was recalled by the White Sox as the 27th man for Saturday's doubleheader against the Orioles.

Burdi will offer another arm out of the bullpen for Saturday's twin bill after he posted a 4.26 ERA and 1.64 WHIP in 6.1 innings across five relief appearances with Triple-A Charlotte to begin the year. The right-hander will likely return to the minors after the doubleheader.

White Sox's Zack Burdi: Sent to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burdi was optioned to the alternate training site Tuesday.

He gave up two runs on four hits and one walk while striking out three in two innings in his lone appearance in Boston on Tuesday. Alex McRae's contract was selected in a corresponding move.

White Sox's Zack Burdi: Summoned from alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The White Sox recalled Burdi from their alternate training site prior to the second game of Sunday's doubleheader with the Red Sox.

Burdi will give the Pale Hose another power arm out of the bullpen as the team looks to complete the doubleheader sweep after taking Game 1 by a score of 3-2. The White Sox cleared a spot on the active roster for Burdi by placing Lance Lynn (back) on the 10-day injured list. Burdi reached the majors for the first time in 2020 but was roughed up over his eight appearances, giving up nine earned runs on 11 hits, including four home runs.

White Sox's Zack Burdi: Sent to alternate camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burdi was optioned to the White Sox's alternate training site Friday.

Burdi joined the major-league roster when Dylan Cease was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Wednesday, but he'll be sent back to the team's alternate camp after Cease was officially reinstated Friday. Burdi didn't make any appearances during his most recent stint in the big leagues.

White Sox's Zack Burdi: Summoned to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burdi was recalled prior to Wednesday's game against Cleveland, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

He takes the place of Dylan Cease (COVID) in the short term to provide the White Sox with some extra bullpen depth. Burdi can miss bats with the best of them, but throwing strikes and staying healthy have been major hurdles in the past.

White Sox's Zack Burdi: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burdi was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte on Tuesday.

The 25-year-old appeared in eight games for the White Sox last season and surrendered nine earned runs with an 11:3 K:BB over 7.1 innings. Burdi is a likely bet to join the big-league club at some point in 2021.

White Sox's Zack Burdi: Optioned to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burdi was optioned to the White Sox's alternate training site Tuesday.

Burdi made his big-league debut in early August but did not find much success in his first 7.1 career innings, allowing nine earned runs while struggling to a 1.91 WHIP. He'll make way for Gio Gonzalez (groin), who returned from the injured list in a corresponding move.

White Sox's Zack Burdi: Makes MLB debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burdi allowed one hit and struck out two over a scoreless inning in Saturday's 7-1 loss to Cleveland.

Burdi was recalled from the alternate training site Saturday after the White Sox placed Aaron Bummer (biceps) on the injured list. This could be a chance for the Burdi to showcase his talent after dealing with significant elbow and knee injuries since joining the organization. Burdi featured a 99-MPH fastball and command of his slider in Saturday's scoreless inning. The right-hander might be used to pick up some of the slack from Bummer's injury if he continues to pitch well.

White Sox's Zack Burdi: Recalled by White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burdi was recalled from the White Sox's alternate training site Saturday.

Burdi has been limited over the past two seasons while recovering from Tommy John surgery and a dislocated knee, but he'll join the major-league bullpen for the first time to help bolster the bullpen. The 2016 first-round pick was thought to be major-league ready in 2017 prior to his injuries. The right-hander posted a 5.70 ERA and 40:18 K:BB over 30 innings across 28 appearances (one start) in the minors over the past two seasons.

White Sox's Zack Burdi: Added to player pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The White Sox added Burdi to their player pool Tuesday, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

Burdi has dealt with injuries -- Tommy John elbow surgery followed by a dislocated knee -- which have cost him much of the last two seasons. He's got a power arm and was thought to be near major-league ready in 2017 before the injuries, so he could make his MLB debut in 2020.

White Sox's Zack Burdi: Beginning year at Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The White Sox optioned Burdi to Double-A Birmingham on March 11.

The hard-throwing righty is still viewed as one of the more intriguing reliever prospects in the White Sox's farm system, even though Tommy John surgery and a dislocated knee have cost him much of the last three seasons. Now healthy, Burdi could move quickly to the majors if he's able to dominate against minor-league hitters with his big fastball early on in 2020.

White Sox's Zack Burdi: Throws perfect inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burdi (knee) retired all three batters faced in the eighth inning of Tuesday's spring game against the Giants.

Burdi consistently registered 96 mph during his one-inning stint. He's dealt with a pair of injuries since being drafted in the first round of the 2016 draft and is looking for his first full season as a professional. Burdi was viewed as a future closer prior to the setbacks and possesses the type of velocity that can play in that role.

White Sox's Zack Burdi: Healthy after two years
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burdi (knee) threw his first side session of spring training Thursday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. ''He looked good,'' manager Rick Renteria said of Burdi's side session. ''The ball was coming out of his hand, and he was around the zone more, hitting the spot more than I thought he would be at this point. A lot of life. He threw the ball well.''

Burdi, a first-round draft pick in 2016, has endured two major injuries since draft day. Tommy John elbow surgery ended his 2017 season prematurely, and he spent 2018 recovering. A dislocated knee cut short his 2019 season. He's got a powerful, upper-90s fastball that fueled a 13.8 K/9 rate in 29 games at Triple-A Charlotte before the elbow injury. Given his lack of work over the last three years, Burdi is expected to start in the minors this season so the organization can monitor the right-hander.

White Sox's Zack Burdi: Added to 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burdi (knee) had his contract selected by the White Sox on Wednesday.

Injuries have limited Burdi to just 29 innings over the last two seasons combined, but he's talented enough that the White Sox elected to protect him from the Rule 5 draft. He didn't exactly showcase that talent while stumbling to a 6.41 ERA over 19.2 innings at Double-A Birmingham, but the team evidently is still holding out hope for his future.

White Sox's Zack Burdi: Out for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burdi will miss the remainder of the season with a tear in the ligament of his right patella.

He had a 6.75 ERA and 1.85 WHIP in 22.2 innings, primarily at Double-A, prior to the injury. Once seen as a future big-league closer, Burdi would now do well just to make it to the majors at all.

White Sox's Zack Burdi: Promoted to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burdi (lat) was promoted to Double-A Birmingham on Tuesday, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

Recovery from Tommy John surgery limited Burdi to just 6.1 innings of rookie-league rehab last season, and he started this season on a rehab assignment at Low-A Kannapolis while dealing with a lat issue. He's now up at Double-A and should soon advance to Triple-A Charlotte, where he spent time in 2016 and 2017 prior to his elbow injury.

White Sox's Zack Burdi: Rehab moves to Low-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burdi (lat) will begin a rehab assignment with Low-A Kannapolis on Monday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

He underwent Tommy John surgery in late July of 2017, and it has been a slow road back, as he was scratched from the Arizona Fall League roster due to fatigue and dealt with this lat injury in spring training. Once fully recovered, Burdi will join Triple-A Charlotte, and he could reach the big leagues sometime this summer.
