White Sox's Alex McRae: Up for doubleheader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McRae was recalled by the White Sox to serve as the 27th man for Friday's doubleheader against the Royals.

McRae has already spent two separate stints on the big-league roster. He's made just a single appearance, striking out one and walking one in a scoreless inning against the Reds in early May. If he makes another appearance Friday, it will likely come in a lower-leverage spot.

White Sox's Alex McRae: Sent to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McRae was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte on Friday.

McRae was promoted to the majors last week and delivered a scoreless inning during his season debut Tuesday. Garrett Crochet (back) was activated from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.

White Sox's Alex McRae: Recalled Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McRae was recalled prior to Tuesday's game against the Tigers, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.

He was summoned as short-term bullpen depth with Jonathan Stiever heading back to the alternate site Monday. McRae has been up with the big club earlier this year but has yet to appear in a game this season.

White Sox's Alex McRae: Sent to secondary site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

McRae's contract was selected Tuesday, but he didn't get into a game during his brief time with the team. He'll clear a spot on the active roster for Billy Hamilton (hamstring), who returns from the injured list in a corresponding move.

White Sox's Alex McRae: Contract selected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McRae's contract was purchased from Chicago's alternate training site Tuesday.

He will work as a low-leverage reliever going forward, taking the place of Zack Burdi, who was optioned in a corresponding move. McRae, 28, made two relief appearances for the White Sox last season, allowing one hit with two strikeouts over three innings.

White Sox's Alex McRae: Headed to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McRae was reassigned to minor-league camp Monday, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

McRae was invited to spring training as a non-roster invitee with a chance to win a bullpen role. He hasn't experienced much prolonged success in the major leagues, though he did manage three scoreless innings as a reliever in 2020 for the White Sox.

White Sox's Alex McRae: Starting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McRae will start Monday's spring game against the Angels, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

The White Sox plan to go with two non-roster invitees to open the Cactus League, as Mike Wright will precede McRae in Sunday's spring opener against the Brewers. McRae made a couple of relief appearances for the White Sox in 2020.

White Sox's Alex McRae: Clears waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The White Sox outrighted McRae to their alternate training site Friday.

McRae cleared waivers after Chicago designated him for assignment prior to its three-game postseason series loss to the Athletics last week. The right-hander made two relief appearances out of the big-league bullpen in 2020, tossing three scoreless frames.

White Sox's Alex McRae: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McRae was designated for assignment by the White Sox on Tuesday.

McRae made just two appearances at the big-league level this season, throwing three scoreless innings. He'll make way on the 40-man roster for Leury Garcia, who returned from a thumb injury in a corresponding move.

September 13, 2020 10:56 AM
White Sox's Alex McRae: Sent down
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McRae was optioned to Chicago's alternate training site Sunday.

The move clears a roster spot for Sunday's starter, Jonathan Stiever. McRae could rejoin the team later this month if they have need of a fresh bullpen arm.

White Sox's Alex McRae: Joins major-league roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McRae's contract was selected by the White Sox on Saturday.

McRae was a non-roster invitee by the White Sox during camp, but he'll join Chicago's bullpen after working at the alternate training site. The right-hander wasn't very effective over a limited sample with the Pirates over the past two seasons as he posted an 8.18 ERA and 1.97 WHIP over 33 innings during 13 appearances (two starts). He's unlikely to play a prominent role in the majors this year. Jace Fry (back) was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.

White Sox's Alex McRae: Joins 60-man player pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McRae was added to the White Sox's 60-man player pool Tuesday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

The right-hander joined 15 other players working out at the team's satellite camp. He's been quite unconvincing in the first 33 innings of his MLB career, all with the Pirates, struggling to an 8.18 ERA, so he's unlikely to be one of the White Sox's regular options this season.

White Sox's Alex McRae: Will join White Sox camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCrae signed with the White Sox as a non-roster invitee Tuesday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

McRae has thrown 33 big-league innings in his career, all with the Pirates, posting an 8.18 ERA and a 24:21 K:BB. If he wins a job with the White Sox, it will likely be in a low-leverage relief role.

Pirates' Alex McRae: Outrighted to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McRae was outrighted off the Pirates' 40-man roster Monday.

McRae threw 26.2 innings for the Pirates in 2019, allowing 30 runs (26 earned) with a 19:16 K:BB. With those numbers, it's easy to see why he passed through waivers unclaimed.

Pirates' Alex McRae: Shifts back to bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McRae made a relief appearance in Friday's 17-8 loss to the Cubs, tossing 1.1 scoreless innings but allowing a hit and three walks.

McRae made a spot start last weekend versus St. Louis when Joe Musgrove was a late scratch with a foot injury, covering five innings and giving up two runs in the outing. With Musgrove cleared to rejoin the rotation Thursday in San Francsico, there was no longer any more room for McRae, who looks poised to stick in the bullpen the rest of the season.

Pirates' Alex McRae: Turns in decent outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McRae allowed two runs on three hits with two walks and one strikeout across five innings during a no-decision against the Cardinals on Friday.

While it wasn't enough for the win, this was arguably McRae's best major-league outing of the season. His biggest issues are still homers (seven in 20.1 innings) and control (11 walks versus 16 strikeouts), but he worked around both against the division-leading Cardinals. However, McRae is still 0-3 with a 8.41 ERA, 1.77 WHIP and 16 strikeouts in 20.1 innings over seven appearances, including two starts, this season.

Pirates' Alex McRae: Set for spot start Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McRae will start Friday's game against St. Louis, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

The 26-year-old was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Thursday and will quickly be pushed into starting duty after Joe Musgrove (foot) was scratched. McRae has primarily worked as a reliever in the majors this season, but he exceeded 85 pitches in five of six starts since his last demotion to Triple-A and could have the workload of a traditional starter if he pitches well.

Pirates' Alex McRae: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McRae was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis prior to Thursday's game against the Marlins.

McRae has given up 17 earned runs in 15.1 innings in the majors this season. Look for him to work in low-leverage situations.

July 30, 2019 04:12 PM
Pirates' Alex McRae: Banished to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McRae was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Tuesday.

McRae was lit up during Monday's start, surrendering seven runs (five earned) over 1.1 innings of work. His poor performance has resulted in a demotion, and it'll likely be Yefry Ramirez who gets a chance to join the rotation moving forward.

July 29, 2019 11:12 PM
Pirates' Alex McRae: Crushed in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McRae (0-3) gave up seven runs (five earned) on six hits and two walks while striking out none through 1.1 innings to take the loss against the Reds on Monday.

Stepping in for the recently-traded Jordan Lyles, McRae was responsible for five of the 10 runs given up by the Pirates in the second inning. The 26-year-old has struggled mightily, posting a 9.98 ERA and a 15:9 K:BB through 15.1 innings. McRae will make his next start Sunday against the Mets at PNC Park.
