DONNIE VEAL RUMORS & GOSSIP

White Sox DFA Veal, Promote Putnam ☆

In an exciting yet understandable move, the White Sox designated lefty reliever Donnie Veal for assignment and purchased the contract of righty Zach Putnam from AAA Charlotte. The move is surprising because it leaves veteran Scott Downs as the only southpaw currently in the team’s bullpen. Downs, who’s been about as reliable as they come over the past decade, hasn’t been able...

White Sox Designate Donnie Veal For Assignment

The White Sox have designated southpaw Donnie Veal for assignment, tweets MLB.com's Scott Merkin. Zach Putnam had his contract purchased to join the big club, which used every one of its relievers in last night's ballgame. After a strong (albeit brief) 2012 campaign in which he posted a 1.38 ERA in 13 innings, Veal has struggled to repeat his success. In 35 1/3 innings since...

For Donnie Veal, Third Time Must Be the Charm

Whether in reference to the offense, the defense, or several individual players, most of us were wrong about some aspect of the White Sox going into the 2013 season. One of the best examples is Donnie Veal, who has been far from his dominant 2012 self. And now, according to reports, Veal is getting his third shot at the big leagues of the season. With the White Sox...

Deunte Heath Demoted; Donnie Veal Recalled

The White Sox made a subtle, yet important roster move after last night’s game. The team optioned right-handed bullpen arm Deunte Heath back to AAA Charlotte and promoted lefty Donnie Veal to take his place. Heath really struggled in his four appearances out of the bullpen since being called up mid-April, giving up seven runs over 5.2 innings. If this is indeed...

White Sox Recall Brian Omogrosso, Option Donnie Veal

The Chicago White Sox have recalled right handed pitcher Brian Omogrosso from Triple-A Charlotte. To make room for him on the active roster, Chicago optioned left handed pitcher Donnie Veal to the same farm affiliate.

Donnie Veal Optioned, Our Friend Omogrosso Promoted

At this point, a roster move breaking out of nowhere is nothing new for us Sox fans in 2013.
