ANDRE RIENZO RUMORS & GOSSIP
For the third straight time out, White Sox starter Andre Rienzo was not sharp. But for the first time on the year, he was unable to keep his team in the ball game despite not having his best stuff.
Andre lasted just 3.2 innings before giving way to long-reliever Scott Carroll and was hit all over the ballpark from the get-go.

Friday night, the Padres’ pitchers were magnificent in shutting down the White Sox’ offensive attack, winning 4-1. Saturday afternoon was all too similar, as San Diego got ahead early and coasted toward a 4-2 victory.

En route to becoming the first Brazilian born pitcher to make it to the major leagues, Andre Rienzo had some highs and lows. Signed as an 18 year old out of Sao Paulo, Rienzo never really took anyone by storm and ultimately wound up as one of the older guys in the organization’s lower levels. But due to a lack of high-end pitching prospects, he ultimately became a mainstay in top...

Rienzo lasted only four innings, allowing five runs on seven hits - including a pair of homers - and four walks, and the Cleveland Indians beat the Chicago White Sox 8-1 on Saturday night.

Sunday was the first chance I had to actually watch Andre Rienzo pitch. I was keeping tabs on his first start earlier in the week, but was unable to watch it, so I was excited to get the chance to see him pitch in person, or from behind my pitchfx monitor.
Here are some of my thoughts and observations on Rienzo after his second career big league start.
Every year around this time, the fantasy landscape undergoes a rapid shift. Teams that thought they had closer stability are left lacking — though this hasn’t been the case thus far this season, Jose Veras aside — and the first teams to pounce of young talent waiting for a call-up or platoon players prime for playing time often end up with top-150 talents at no cost.It’s...
The Chicago White Sox have only the Houston Astros buffering them from the floor of the American League.
With a roster lacking talent, depth or potential the White Sox were sellers when the season began. Yet it is July 30 and the White Sox are talking about building their team around 32-year-old Jake Peavy.
Peavy is a fine pitcher when healthy. He no longer has the dominating stuff...

Unfortunately for the Herd, games aren’t played on paper as Rienzo had one of his best starts of the season, limiting the Bisons to only one run as Charlotte took down Buffalo 5-1.
