Chicago right-hander Andre Rienzo was scratched from his start against Detroit on Friday night because of a blister on his throwing hand. Right-hander Dylan Axelrod started in Rienzo's place. Rienzo is 2-2 with a 5.04 ERA this season. Detroit was dealing with its own injury. Shortstop Jose Iglesias was out of the lineup, one day after being hit in the left hand by a pitch....

Rienzo lasts 4 innings as ChiSox lose to Tribe 8-1

Brazilian right-hander Andre Rienzo may be hitting a wall in his first year in the big leagues.

Rienzo (2-2), who was called up July 30, has allowed five or more runs in three of his last four...

Fox announcer needs geography lesson

This is one of the funniest broadcast bloopers we've seen this year.  During Fox's national broadcast of White Sox-Twins on Saturday, the play by play man was giving a brief biography of Chicago's starting pitcher Andre Rienzo.  (It was listed initially as Dick Stockton, but it sure sounds like Twins announcer Dick Bremer, perhaps someone can leave a note in the comments...

Observations on Andre Rienzo

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. First off...

Do You Know Andre Rienzo? Well, You Should

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...

White Sox Fall Again, Rienzo Shines in Debut, and What it Means

Your Chicago White Sox dropped their fifth straight game and have now lost eight of their last nine contests overall, but the story line to focus on, for once, is actually positive. Twenty five year-old prospect Andre Rienzo got the call-up to start in place of Jake Peavy. With the start in Cleveland, he became the first Brazilian pitcher to ever appear in an MLB game. And...

White Sox folding fast on Peavy talk

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...

Rienzo likely to start for Sox in place of Peavy

Rienzo Dominant As Bisons Fall

Entering with a 2-2 record and an 8.27 ERA, Bisons fans had to assume that Buffalo was poised to have a big night Monday against Charlotte Knights starting pitcher Andre Rienzo. 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. While Rienzo was shutting...
