All White Sox fans are well aware that Addison Reed and Jesse Crain have been nothing short of phenomenal out of the team's bullpen this season. But outside of them, the unit has not been nearly as strong as we expected it to be.
With youngsters that burst onto the scene like Reed, Nate Jones, Donnie Veal, Hector Santiago, and Brian Omogrosso in 2012, expectations...
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...

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. Omogrosso has struggled mightily at AAA this year so this isn’t what they call a well-deserved promotion.

The Chicago White Sox have recalled right-hander Brian Omogrosso from Triple-A Charlotte Wednesday and have optioned left-hander Donnie Veal to the International League team.
Omogrosso was 0-1 with a 6.52 ERA in 9 2-3 innings with the Knights this season. He had 2.57 ERA in 21 innings for Chicago last year.
Veal was 1-0 with a 4.26 ERA in 6 1-3 innings over 12 games in his second...

At this point, a roster move breaking out of nowhere is nothing new for us Sox fans in 2013. But Wednesday afternoon, an unexpected demotion took place as Donnie Veal (pictured below, H/T AP) was sent to AAA Charlotte.
Last year, Donnie Veal was dominant out of the White Sox' pen. He appeared in 24 games, pitching 13 total innings and bolstering a staggering 1.38 ERA...
It’s been a long time since the White Sox have had a scheduled off day (plenty of rained out days though), which means it’s been a while since we’ve posted a “Down On the Farm” report here on GSB! Unfortunately, that might be a good thing, as a lot of the team’s top prospects have had rough starts to the season.

As a team, the Knights...
The White Sox dropped the second game of this weather-abbreviated three-game set to the Minnesota Twins as the bullpen did not do their job Sunday afternoon.
"Good Gavin" Floyd showed up for the first time this season, as he tossed six innings of one-run ball. He let up three walks, only three hits, and six strikeouts as he left the game late with his team leading...
Though it took longer than we may have hoped, the White Sox finally pulled off their first comfortable victory of the season in which they didn't have to fight and scrap until the very end to get the W. But the recipe for success was nothing new: a lot of pitching and a dash of power.
Our finesse south paw, Jose Quintana, brought his A-game for the second straight...
Just some things I wanted to note for you guys from the road trip.

Here at More Hardball we love the minutiae of baseball and one of our favorite "stats" to track is pitchers carrying a 0.00 Earned Run Average. At the beginning of the season, Mariners' rookie Lucas Luetge, carried that distinction into the middle June. Now the final month and a half of the season is upon us and a new crop of pitchers are making their 2012 debuts...
This week’s Sports Illustrated includes a sidebar to a feature on Pirates star Andrew McCutcheon calling the MLB 2005 Draft Class “the best in decades.”
It is hard to dispute that assertion based on much of the talent to come out of it — Justin Upton, Ryan Zimmerman, Troy Tulowitzki and Jacoby Ellsbury are among the big names taken that year, as well as a host of serviceable...
On Monday morning, I wrote an article that revealed the top five teams in Major League Baseball at drafting and developing talent for their big league club over the past decade, starting with the 2002 Draft.
Several people commented that they wished to see the entire list of teams, ranked by total accumulated WAR and also including average WAR per homegrown player. Here is the entire...
