White Sox P Jeff Samardzija goes 8 innings in win
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/22/15) White Sox pitcher Jeff Samardzija went eight strong innings during Friday night's 3-2 win against the Twins.
Samardzija only allowed three hits and two earned runs in the game. He struck out nine batters and walked one. This is the second consecutive game Samardzija has been able to go into the eighth inning.
Samardzija now has an ERA of 4.28 for the season.
"With this offense we have I know I have to battle every inning and we're gonna have a chance to win," Samardzija said, via MLB.com. "The last two times out I felt really good. My pitches are in the zone, which is the most important thing."
His next start projected for May 27 against the Blue Jays.
White Sox P Jeff Samardzija was ready when he faced his old team

|(5/17/15) Jeff Samardzija knew he had to bring his A-game Sunday if he wanted to fare well in his first start against the Athletics, the team that traded him to the White Sox in the off season, reports MLB.com.|
"I have the utmost respect for those guys over there," Samardzija said. "I've never seen a team play so hard every day. They come to play, they're professionals, and I loved being a part of it.
Samardzija allowed three runs on eight hits in eight innings to earn the victory.
White Sox pitcher Jeff Samardzija tosses eight innings in win
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/17/15) White Sox pitcher Jeff Samardzija allowed three runs on eight hits in eight innings of work in Chicago's 7-3 win over the Athletics on Sunday.
Samardzija's biggest mistake came in the fourth inning when Max Muncy crushed a two-run home run over the center field wall. Then in the fifth with a runner on third, Samardzija allowed the run to score on a fielder's choice.
"He's always been a high-pitch guy," manager Robin Ventura said to MLB.com. "I think as the game went along you're looking at him as just getting sharper. You understand he's been there. I think he thrives on it somewhat. It was easy to have him go back out there. You can go hitter to hitter, but he seems to thrive on that."
Samardzija, now 3-2, moved his ERA to 4.58 in 53 innings of work. He will look to keep rolling Friday against the Twins.
White Sox pitcher Jeff Samardzija roughed up in ND on Monday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/11/15) White Sox pitcher Jeff Samardzija allowed seven runs, five earned, on eight hits in six innings of work in Chicago's 10-7 loss to the Brewers on Monday, but did not factor into the decision.
Samardzija was tagged early and often starting in the first inning when he allowed the first two batters to reach safely. Then, Adam Lind picked up an RBI on a fielder's choice before Carlos Gomez crushed a two-run home run. Then in the second, Samardzija gave up an RBI double to Gerardo Parra and an RBI single to Ryan Braun.
Samardzija, now 2-3, pumped his ERA to 4.80 in 45 innings of work. He will look to get back on track Sunday against the Athletics.
White Sox SP Samardzija drops appeal, begins serving suspension
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/6/15) White Sox starter Jeff Samardzija has dropped the appeal of the five-game suspension handed down after his participation in a bench-clearing brawl in April. Samardzija will begin serving the suspension on Wednesday and will be eligible to return for the team's game against the Brewers on May 11, according to MLB.com.
Samardzija pitched well on Tuesday after struggling for much of the season. He also had an X-ray done on his arm after he was hit by a line-drive. While the team is not concerned with his health, the right-hander can use this time to make sure he's fully recovered for his next start.
|2014 summary: In his third season as a starter, Jeff Samardzija enjoyed a true breakout, even if his 7-13 record didn't show it. While Samardzija can't be blamed for getting a mere 3.6 runs of support per nine innings, he held up his end of the bargain by striking out 202 batters and walking just 43. Samardzija was traded by the Cubs to the Athletics in early July, and in moving to the American League, he did not miss a step. He posted a 2.83 ERA in 17 starts for the Cubs and then proceeded to put up a 3.14 ERA with the Athletics. This offseason, Samardzija was shipped back to the Windy City, as the A's dealt him to the White Sox in a six-player deal.|
Playing time status: Samardzjia will slot in behind Chris Sale at the top of the White Sox's rotation, and he will attempt to top 210 innings for the third straight year.
2015 outlook: In moving to U.S. Cellular Field, Samardzija is at greater risk of allowing home runs, but the improvements in command he made last season put him at less risk of paying a price for excessive long balls. Even with the change of venue, Samardzija should be drafted as one of the top 25 starters off the board, making him a reasonable target by the latter portions of the early rounds.
