|White Sox send down four |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(3/19/14) Catcher Josh Phegley headlines a quartet of White Sox dispatched to minor league camp Wednesday. The others are third baseman Andy Wilkins and pitchers Andre Rienzo and Eric Surkamp.
The White Sox are woefully short behind the plate. Unproven Tyler Flowers is set as the starter and Adrian Nieto his backup, though the team has been rumored to be looking for an upgrade via trade.
|White Sox claim Eric Surkamp |
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(12/23/13) According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the White Sox claimed starting pitcher Eric Surkamp off waivers from the Giants on Monday.
Surkamp returned from Tommy John surgery in 2013, and he compiled a 7-1 record with a 2.80 ERA in 16 combined starts with Triple-A Fresno and Advanced Class A San Jose. He also made one start for the Giants.
|Giants designate Eric Surkamp for assignment |

(12/20/13) The Giants have designated pitcher Eric Surkamp for assignment, clearing a 40-man roster spot for the signing of Mike Morse.
Surkamp was rocked in his only start with the Giants last season but went 7-1 with a 2.80 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 71:23 K:BB ratio in 86 2/3 innings over 16 starts between high Class A San Jose and Triple-A Fresno.
|Eric Surkamp hit hard in season debut |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(7/23/13) Giants pitcher Eric Surkamp (0-1) was hit hard as he was pegged with the loss during his first start back from Tommy John surgery in Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Reds. The left-hander was shelled for seven runs on nine hits and no walks over 2 2/3 innings pitched in a 9-2 defeat.
Surkamp, who made his first start since the 2011 season, told Comcast SportsNet Bay Area after the game that he does not feel fully recovered from the surgery, claiming his "arm doesn't have that whip back in it."
"It was awesome to be back out there," Surkamp said. "Surprisingly, I wan't really nervous. The last year has been a long year for me. Tonight, just being up here, I was really excited. Unfortunately it didn't turn out better. If I get a chance to throw up here again, hopefully it goes better."
|Eric Surkamp has 'no limitations' heading into start |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(7/23/13) Giants starting pitcher Eric Surkamp is confident heading into Tuesday's start against the Reds. It will be the left-handed hurler's first major-league start since 2011 after he missed the 2012 season recovering from Tommy John surgery.
"My arm is back to 100 percent," he said, per the San Jose Mercury News. "Repeating mechanics is part of the process, (but) my arm feels good. There are no limitations. This week is the best my arm has felt."
|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.
