White Sox's Matt Foster: Middle-relief win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster (5-0) struck out two and retired all six batters faced to earn the win Saturday against the Reds.

Foster came on for starter Dallas Keuchel, who lasted just four innings in his return from a back injury. It was the eighth time in 19 appearances Foster has thrown more than an inning, including two outings as an opener. Foster has been one of several gems out of Chicago's bullpen and sports a 1.88 ERA with 28 strikeouts over 24 innings.

White Sox's Matt Foster: Grabs fourth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster (4-0) struck out two over a scoreless inning to earn the win over Minnesota on Monday.

Foster, who entered a tied game in the eighth inning, picked up his fourth win as a reliever with the assistance of Chicago's powerful offense, which plated three runs in the ninth. The 25-year-old right-hander has added a boost to the bullpen, recording a 1.13 ERA and 20 strikeouts over 16 innings.

White Sox's Matt Foster: Throws scoreless inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

White Sox's Matt Foster: Finishes Sunday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster pitched a scoreless eighth inning in Sunday's 7-2 win over the Cardinals.

Foster, who threw 25 pitches as the opener in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader, got his first exposure to late-inning work Sunday. With the White Sox leading by five runs, it wasn't high leverage, but it could be seen as manager Rick Renteria's confidence in the 25-year-old right-hander, who has yet to allow a run in 2020.

White Sox's Matt Foster: Throws two perfect as opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster struck out two over two perfect innings as the opener for the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Cardinals.

This was Foster's second time out as an opener, and both outings have been scoreless. As a matter of fact, whether he's been an opener or a traditional reliever, Foster has not allowed a run. The 25-year-old right-hander has allowed two hits and two walks while striking out 15 of the 32 batters faced over 9.2 innings (six appearances).

White Sox's Matt Foster: Starting second game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster will start Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Cardinals, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

With Chicago planning to lean on its bullpen for Game 2 of Saturday's twin bill, Foster will begin the game on the mound. The right-hander has thrown 7.2 scoreless innings with a 13:2 K:BB this season.

White Sox's Matt Foster: Looks good as opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster threw a pair of scoreless innings to open Saturday's loss against Cleveland, striking out three and walking one while allowing zero hits.

Foster faced the minimum in his two frames, erasing Carlos Santana's second-inning leadoff walk with a lineout double play. He hasn't allowed a run in any of his four appearances this year.

White Sox's Matt Foster: Starting bullpen game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster will start Saturday against Cleveland in what will be a bullpen game.

White Sox manager Rick Renteria confirmed Foster as Saturday's starter following Chicago's win Friday night. The right-handed rookie is making his first career start at any level. Ross Detwiler is also expected to pitch Saturday.

White Sox's Matt Foster: Called up by White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Foster was recalled by the White Sox on Wednesday.

Foster will take the bullpen spot that had belonged to Jimmy Lambert, who hit the injured list with a forearm strain in a corresponding move. Foster is yet to make his big-league debut but recorded a solid 3.76 ERA and a 27.7 percent strikeout rate in 55 innings of relief for Triple-A Charlotte last season.

White Sox's Matt Foster: Heads to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The White Sox optioned Foster to Triple-A Charlotte on March 6.

Chicago saw enough from Foster during his time at Charlotte and Double-A Birmingham to protect him from the Rule 5 draft over the winter, but the right-hander's demotion early in camp suggests he wasn't particularly close to cracking the White Sox's Opening Day bullpen. He'll look to find success with Charlotte again after posting a 3.76 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 62:19 K:BB in 55 innings with the affiliate in 2019.
