(8/16/14) The White Sox made several roster moves Saturday, including the activation off the 60-day disabled list of outfielder Avisail Garcia.
The team also played outfielder Moises Sierra on the DL with a strained left oblique, designated left-handed pitcher Charlie Leesman for assignment, placed right-hander Javy Guerra on the bereavement list and recalled southpaw Eric Surkamp from Triple-A Charlotte.

(8/10/14) White Sox pitcher Eric Surkamp needed three pitches to record two outs and pick up a win in his team's 2-1, 10-inning victory over the Mariners Saturday.
Surkamp (1-0) was brought into the bottom of the ninth with a runner on first and one out, and he promptly induced a ground ball to record an inning-ending double play. The offense then took the lead in the top of the 10th. Surkamp owns a 7.30 ERA and 9:6 K:BB ratio in 12 1/3 innings.
|White Sox will go with a closer by committee for now |

(6/28/14) The White Sox will go with a closer by committee approach for now, according to CSN.
Ronald Belisario had been the club's closer, but was pulled Friday after struggling in the ninth. The club turned to Eric Surkamp, and then Jake Petricka to pick up the save. Manager Robin Ventura claims the team will use matchups to dictate who closes.
|Eric Surkamp started the 2013 season on the disabled list as he was still working his way back from July 2012 Tommy John surgery. Though, Surkamp struggled in his only major-league start last season, allowing seven runs on nine hits (two home runs) in a July 23 loss vs. Cincinnati, the left-handed hurler had encouraging numbers in the minors. Surkamp went 7-1 with a 2.80 ERA and 1.00 WHIP in 16 starts between Class A and Triple-A. Surkamp was particularly outstanding in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League, going 7-1 with a 2.78 ERA and 1.07 WHIP. Surkamp was one of the Giants' top pitching prospects before missing the 2012 season due to the elbow injury. He's now a member of the White Sox organization after the Giants put him on waivers in late December. He hasn't pitched well in the majors, going 2-3 with a 7.36 ERA and 1.97 WHIP in seven starts, but Surkamp could be an injury away from joining the rotation. Surkamp is 33-14 with a 2.84 ERA and 1.12 WHIP in 87 minor-league appearances (83 starts). He is also striking out 10.0 batters per nine innings. Despite poor MLB numbers, this kid has potential. He could be worth stashing in deeper keeper formats.
