3.22 ERA, 1.33 WHIP  Dunning's K per inning good, walks & HB raise his WHIP, so I guess he needs to refine his control a bit. Nothing really stands out as a worry.

Tomshaw or Banks.

Walsh or Kubat.

these are easy decisions IMO.

doesn't mean they'll succeed, but everyone deserves a chance to fail.

Don Roach picked up another W, he's been pitching real well at Charlotte.

Charlotte's best hitters have been Mason Robbins & Eddie Alvarez. whoda thunkit.

Tanner Banks won again at Winston Salem. He and Kyle Kubat are too old for high A ball, they both deserve a shot at AA.
We have a glut of pitchers, not many left that are release-able, sure was good to see House go. Banks and Kubat are not real prospects either.

Fry now has 8 holds, 189 ERA, 0.95 WHIP

I didn't see him being this good.
He was real good in college, after 2 TJs though he has really done well.

Jeanmar could be a flip candidate.   Need to showcase him at some point.  What's the point of having a 30 year old in AAA?

I don't think getting the #1 pick next year would be a good thing, because that could mean that the young guys already up here suck.   It would be better to have the young 'uns show promise and get the number 8 pick.
We will not get anything for Jeanmar.

This Date In White Sox History - June 14th

June 14, 1953 - Sox pitchers Billy Pierce and Sandy Consuegra both fire complete game shutouts in beating the Boston Red Sox in a double header at Comiskey Park. The Sox win 6 - 0 and 1 - 0.

On June 14 in Baseball History...

    1870 - At the Capitoline Grounds in Brooklyn, the Cincinnati Red Stockings see their 130 game consecutive streak (81 official games and 49 exhibitions) come to an end losing to the Atlantics in extra innings, 8-7. During the game, in an effort not to hit the ball to George Wright, the opponents' slick fielding shortstop, hometown third baseman and captain, Bob Ferguson, bats left-handed becoming the first-known switch hitter in baseball history.

    1876 - Philadelphia Athletic George Hall becomes first major league player to hit for the cycle. The Englishman will also become the first player to be banned along with others for throwing a 3 1/2 game lead with 12 games to go in 1877.

    1919 - Batting only .198 in 25 games since being acquired last month from the Seattle Rainiers of the Pacific Coast League, Joe Wilhoit scratches out a first-inning single to begin the longest consecutive game hitting streak in the history of professional baseball. The Wichita Jobbers' outfielder will hit safely in 69 Western League contests, collecting 153 hits in 297 at-bats for an astounding .515 batting average.

    1933 - Joe McCarthy and Lou Gehrig are both thrown out of the game with the Yankee manager being suspended for three games. Fortunately his first baseman isn't and the 'Iron Horse's' consecutive game streak stays intact at 1,249 games.

    1949 - Ruth Ann Steinhagen shoots Eddie Waitkus in the chest with a rifle at Chicago's Edgewater Beach Hotel. The obsessed fan, who had become infatuated with the first baseman when he played with the Cubs, apparently is upset and agitated because the All-star infielder was traded to the Phillies.

    1952 - In a 3-1 loss, Boston Braves southpaw Warren Spahn whiffs 18 Cubs in 15 innings tying Jim Whitney's National League record of 18 strikeouts. On the same day, Braves scout Dewey Griggs signs a Mobile, Alabama youth named Henry Aaron.

    1953 - Before 74,708 fans, the Yankees sweep the Indians, 6-2 and 3-0, to extend the team's winning streak to eighteen consecutive games. The Bronx Bombers' run of victories will end with a 3-1 loss to St. Louis, one win shy of the franchise mark of 19 set in 1947.

    1956 - Frank 'Trader' Lane lives up to his nickname when the Cardinals GM completes a seven-player deal with the Giants. The Redbirds swap future Hall of Famer second baseman Red Schoendienst‚ catcher Bill Sarni and southpaw Dick Littlefield to the Jints for shortstop Alvin Dark‚ outfielder Whitey Lockman, backstop Ray Katt, and left-hander Don Liddle.

    1963 - In a 10-3 win over the Reds at Crosley Field, Met outfielder Duke Snider hits his 400th career homer off of Bob Purkey. With his sweet left-handed swing, the future Hall of Famer will finish his 18-years in the major leagues with 407 round-trippers.

    1963 - At Cleveland Stadium, Willie Kirkland becomes just the second major leaguer to hit two extra-inning home runs in the same game. The Indian outfielder's 11th inning round-tripper ties the game at two runs apiece, and his homer in 19th results in a 3-2 walk-off victory for the Tribe.

    1965 - At Crosley Field, Jim Maloney no-hits the Mets for ten innings, but loses 1-0 when Johnny Lewis connects for a homer in the eleventh. In August at Wrigley Field, the Reds' right-hander will once again give up no hits through the first nine innings, but this time will record a no-hitter when his teammate Leo Cardenas connects in the top off tenth, providing the only run in Cincinnati's 1-0 victory over Chicago.

    1966 - The Florida State League's Miami Marlins edge Sparky Anderson's St. Petersburg Cardinals, 4-3, in the longest uninterrupted game ever played in organized baseball. The 29-inning FSL contest takes six hours and 59 minutes to complete.

    1969 - Reggie Jackson accumulates 11 total bases and drives in ten runs in Oakland's 21-7 rout of the Red Sox. The A's outfielder's offensive output in the Fenway Park contest includes a pair of two-run homers, a double, and a single.

    1969 - After playing nine years in New York, Tom Tresh is traded by the Yankees to the Tigers for outfielder Ron Woods. The 1962 Rookie of the Year, who grew up in Detroit, will retire at the end of the season.

    1974 - Nolan Ryan whiffs 19 batters in 13 innings, including Cecil Cooper six consecutive times, in the Angels' 15-inning, 4-3 victory over Boston in Anaheim. The right-hander's performance will be the first of three 19 strikeout outings the Texan throws this season.

    1975 - The Angels trade Denny Doyle to the Red Sox in exchange for a player to be named later (Chuck Minor) and cash. Boston's new slick-fielding second baseman will play a pivotal role in the team's championship season, compiling a 22-game streak hitting streak and batting .310 after arriving from California,

    1978 - The Phillies trade outfielders Jay Johnstone and Bobby Brown to the Yankees for right-hander Rawly Eastwick. Philadelphia's new reliever will compile a 2-1 record this season appearing in 51 games.

    1979 - The Giants lose to the Cubs 8-6, but Willie McCovey hits his 513rd career home run off Dennis Lamp. McCovey becomes the most prolific lefthanded home run hitter in N.L. history.

    1985 - After retiring two seasons ago, Earl Weaver returns to the Orioles dugout replacing his successor Joe Altobelli, who won a world championship in his first year with the club. In the 105 games remaining, 'Earl of Baltimore' will guide the team to a 53-52 record, and will retire for good after next season when the O's finish in seventh place.

    1989 - In a 6-4 victory over the Blue Jays at County Stadium, Robin Yount’s consecutive games streak ends. The Brewers center fielder establishes a new club record club record playing in 276 straight contests.

    1990 - The National League announces plans to expand from 12 to 14 teams. The two new franchises, that will begin playing in 1993, are the Florida Marlins and Colorado Rockies. The price of admission for each expansion franchise is $95 million.

    1992 - Ozzie Smith breaks Roy McMillan's N.L. mark by taking part in his 1,305th career double play.

    1995 - Mike Benjamin goes 6-for-7, five singles and a double, and drives in the winning run in the 13th inning of the Giants' 4-3 victory over Chicago at Wrigley Field. It caps a three-day binge in which Benjamin, a career .186 hitter in his first six seasons, sets a major league record with 14 hits in three games. Benjamin was 14-for-18 in that stretch.

    1996 - At Kauffman Stadium, Cal Ripken sets a new consecutive games world record by playing in his 2,216th consecutive game. The previous mark of 2,215 was held by Hiroshima Carp third baseman Sachio Kinugasa playing in the Japanese Central League.

    1998 - With a 4-2 victory over Cleveland, the Yankees tie a major league record by winning or splitting their 24th consecutive series. The Bronx Bombers equal the mark shared by the 1912 Red Sox and the 1970 Reds.

    2002 - Due to 14 interleague contests all played in National League parks, a designated hitter is not used in a full slate of major league games for the first time since 1972. Visiting hurlers will get plenty of opportunities to swing the bat as there isn't a home game scheduled in an American League park for ten consecutive days.

    2003 - After being activated from the disabled list by the Dodgers, first baseman Fred McGriff bats cleanup and goes 2-for-4 in his return against the Padres. It was the Crime Dog's first trip to the DL during his 18-year career.

    2005 - Behind Chuck Klein (683rd game - 1933) and Lloyd Warner (686th game - 1932), Ichiro Suzuki (696th game -2005) becomes the third fastest big leaguer player to reach the 1000-hit mark. The 31-year old Mariners outfielder also holds the record in Japan for being the quickest player to attain 1,000 hits, reaching the milestone in 757 games.

    2005 - Before a pitch in the seventh inning, the umpires are asked to investigate Brendan Donnelly's glove for a foreign substances. Upon the discovery of illegal pine tar, the Angel pitcher, who claims he uses the substance to control sweating, is tossed resulting in managers Mike Scioscia and Frank Robinson exchanging angry words which incites a brawl clearing both benches and bullpens. 

    2006 - Russ Ortiz (0-5, 7.54) becomes the highest paid player ever to be cut by a major league team. Although the team still owes $22 million of the $33 million of the four-year deal signed in December 2004, the Diamondbacks designate the 32-year old righty for assignment, meaning the club has 10 days to trade, waive or release the pitcher who has a 1-14 record in his last 19 starts.

    2010 - After just seven days in the major leagues, Stephen Strasburg is named National League player of the week. The Nationals' right-handed flame thrower starts his career 2-0 with 22 strikeouts, second to only Karl Spooner who fanned five more batters in his first two major league starts with the Dodgers in 1954.

    2014 - The Oakland Athletics traded Michael Taylor to the Chicago White Sox in exchange for Jake Sanchez.

    2014 - Jimmy Rollins becomes the Phillies’ all-time hits leader when he singles in the fifth against Chicago’s Edwin Jackson for his 2,235th hit for the 132 year-old franchise. At the end of the frame, the 35 year-old switch-hitting shortstop is greeted with a high-five and a hug at first base by Mike Schmidt, the Hall of Famer whose total he surpassed to set the mark, with the entire team then coming out from the Philadelphia dugout to offer their congratulations on the milestone hit.

    2015 - The San Diego Padres traded Trea Turner to the Washington Nationals as part of 3-team trade in which the Tampa Bay Rays sent Wil Myers, Ryan Hanigan, Gerardo Reyes and Jose Castillo to the San Diego Padres (December 19, 2014); the San Diego Padres sent Rene Rivera, Burch Smith and Jake Bauers to the Tampa Bay Rays (December 19, 2014); the Washington Nationals sent Steven Souza and Travis Ott to the Tampa Bay Rays (December 19, 2014); and the San Diego Padres sent Joe Ross to the Washington Nationals (December 19, 2014).

    2017 - The Washington Nationals signed Alejandro de Aza as a free agent.
