White Sox's Jeff Samardzija gets back on track, picks up second win
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(10:52 pm ET) White Sox starting pitcher Jeff Samardzija got back on track with a quality start and the win Tuesday night against Detroit.
Samardzija (2-2) permitted a run-scoring single to Ian Kinsler in the first and a solo home run to Alex Avila in the second before settling down. He yielded two earned runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out seven over seven innings of a 5-2 victory. Of his 105 pitches, 71 were strikes.
Samardzija has three quality starts over his last four outings. He lowered his ERA from 4.78 to 4.38. The right-hander will look for his third win of the season on Monday n Milwaukee.
ChiSox's Jeff Samardzija looks to get past empty-stadium start in Baltimore
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(5/4/15) White Sox starting pitcher Jeff Samardzija was rocked during his last start against the Orioles, allowing seven earned runs on 10 hits in 5 1/3 innings, but said he's hoping the oddity of the situation, an empty Camden Yards, was the reason, according to the Chicago Tribune|
"The other side of me looks at it for what it was from afar - a very unique game and very unique situation," Samardzija said. "For me, it was about that routine and being off for over a week, and that's why it's easy to turn the page and move on to the next one."
Samardzija takes the mound for his next start Tuesday against the Tigers.
White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper confident staff will improve
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(5/1/15) White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper said he believes his staff's performace will imporve and that he's going to work with starter Jeff Samardzija on his slider, per CSN Chicago.
Cooper said Samardzija's slider is down 2-3 mph and that "we’re going to try to see if we can make a dent in that [Saturday] on his sideline.''
Samardzija was acquired by the White Sox in the offseason and has struggled thus far, positing a 1-2 record with a 4.78 ERA.
White Sox starters are a combined 5-8 this season with a 5.47 ERA.
First inning disaster dooms White Sox RHP Jeff Samardzija
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/29/15) Perhaps it was the quiet of empty Camden Yards. Or perhaps it was the hot-hitting Orioles. Or perhaps it was a combination of the two. Whatever it was, White Sox right-hander Jeff Samardzija simply got mashed Wednesday afternoon.
Actually, he wasn't awful after the first inning, but by then it was too late to prevent his second defeat in three decisions. Baltimore sent 11 men to the plate in a first inning that featured seven hits, including a three-run homer by Chris Davis.
Samardzija settled down and finished having yielded seven earned runs on 10 hits in 5 1/3 innings with one walk and five strikeouts. Despite strong performances in his previous two starts, his ERA sits at 4.78.
He will try to lower it next Tuesday against Detroit.
|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.
