White Sox name Jeff Samardzija Opening Day starter

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/25/15) White Sox manager Robin Ventura has named pitcher Jeff Samardzija as the team's Opening Day starter for April 6 against the Royals, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

The move comes as expected with Chris Sale sidelined for the opener. Samardzija has delivered mediocre spring numbers, allowing nine earned runs in 11 1/3 innings while managing just six strikeouts, but he's coming off a season in which he went 7-13 with a 2.99 ERA and 202:43 K:BB ratio in 219 2/3 innings.

White Sox to start season with Jeff Samardzija, Jose Quintana?

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/24/15) White Sox starting pitcher Jeff Samardzija told reporters he's not concerned about his chances of taking Chris Sale's spot as Chicago's Opening Day starter, according to Chicago Sun Times

"No, I just need to know the day of," Samardzija said. "Some of my best starts were when I showed up and they said you're pitching today. It doesn't really matter to me. Probably the less time you get the better, that way the less time you stay in bed thinking about it and staying up all night."

Although manager Robin Ventura has yet to name his starter for Day, Jose Quintana may have tipped his hand, telling reporters he expects to see the ball in Day 2.

"It's a little different because it's the first one, right?" Samardzija said. "You're not in midseason form but the spotlight is so bright you need to be in midseason form, so in that sense it's a little weird."

White Sox pitcher Jeff Samardzija surrenders three homers Sunday

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/22/15) White Sox starting pitcher Jeff Samardzija gave up three home runs over 4 1/3 innings pitched Sunday, but hit a more important milestone: 75 pitches, according to ESPN.com.

"That's OK; it just happens," Samardzija said, mentioning the Milwaukee Brewers' spring ballpark, known for being a launching pad. "You make some pitches and those things happen."

Of his 76 pitches, 49 went for strikes.

"I felt like I could have kept going; I felt real good," Samardzija said. "We've been extending it down in warm-ups and throwing a lot of pitches. It's all about stretching out and making sure your endurance is up, so when you need to go 100 or 120, you can do it."

Manager Robin Ventura continues to play coy on naming the Opening Day starter.

"I'm getting closer (to an announcement)," Ventura said. "Not right now. I'm getting closer. … There's just no reason to do it. I don’t plan on changing my mind, there’s just no reason to do it."

White Sox mum on opening day starter

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/14/15) The White Sox have yet to declare who will be the opening day starter this season. Based on current pitching schedules, Jeff Samardzija could fill into that role, but manager Robin Ventura won't say just yet who will start, reports MLB.com.

"Is that what it lines him up for?" said Ventura. "It might line him up for that, but there is another 'B' game down the road, so you never know."

Samardzija will be happy no matter what role Ventura gives him when the season starts.

"We have a great relationship and I wanted to jump on the opportunity to get him out there to the mound and go pitch to pitch," Samardzija said. "If you just talk sometimes, your lines can get crossed, and if you're working, you can see it happen and see the result and he's able to chime in. That way I get to feel what he likes and he gets to see what I like and just build that relationship a little more, which is really important right now."

White Sox's Jeff Samardzija thought he would stick with A's

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/9/15) White Sox pitcher Jeff Samardzija didn't think he'd be in Chicago this season. 

After being traded to the Athletics from the Cubs a year ago, Samardzija told reporters on Monday that he thought he'd be on Oakland's rotation this year. Then, he was traded for four minor league players in a typical move the Athletics make. 

“From seeing what had been said about having my extra year when trading for me, I took it as they’re excited to have me the next year," Samardzija said, via the San Francisco Chronicle. "But apparently, it meant it’s a good chip to have to get four more chips in return.”

Samardzija got his first game action of the spring in Sunday's 10-4 win over the Athletics. Though he only spent half of a season, Samardzija would entertain the idea of going back there if given the opportunity. 

Due $9.8 million in 2015, Samardzija will be an unrestricted free agent next year.
