White Sox's Petricka nets first save with Robertson unavailable
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(5/28/15) With White Sox manager Robin Ventura looking to stay away from closer David Robertson on Thursday, he turned to Zach Duke and Jake Petricka to close out a 3-2 win in the first game of a doubleheader against the Orioles.
Ventura kept Duke in the game in the ninth inning after he relieved Chris Sale with two outs in the bottom of the eighth. Duke struck out Manny Machado in the eighth to preserve a 2-0 lead. He took the mound in the ninth with a 3-0 lead.
He struck out the first two batters in the ninth before running into trouble. Delmon Young had a two-out single, and then Chris Davis parked a two-run homer into the right-field seats to cut the deficit to one.
Ventura went to Petricka for the final out of the game. He struck out Travis Snider for his first save of the season and 15th career save.
White Sox's Jake Petricka still working on mechanics after debut
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/23/15) White Sox pitcher Jake Petricka tossed a scoreless inning in his season debut Wednesday but had some mechanical issues that needed to be cleaned up, MLB.com reports.
"I pretty much look at it after every game. Make sure everything looks smooth," said Petricka of studying his pitching mechanics. "There was a little pause yesterday. Take away the pause and it will probably fix everything else. Little things like that. It's always that balance because we are never happy with what level we are playing at. We always want to get better. When you are out there competing, you are trying to win no matter what."
Petricka had to start the season on the disabled list due to a forearm strain that prevented him from smoothing out his mechanics during spring training. He was able to make some adjustments during Wednesday's debut and figures to only need minor fixes.
"You saw the first couple of pitches and what he was doing and he made some adjustments," manager Robin Ventura said. "At the end you saw some of the swings that guys had, especially the lefty off the end, he had some sink to it. It was more like what you're used to seeing with him so it was a good adjustment."

|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(4/20/15) Jake Petricka, who was activated from the disable list on Monday and called up by the White Sox, said his right-forearm strain injury was minor and that he's ready to go for the whole season, per MLB.com.|
"It was a matter of getting rid of that soreness, and time wasn't on our side in spring and now we are here," Petricka said. "It was a matter of getting it feeling good again .. But it's over and now let's have a good long season."
Petricka is in his third season as a reliever with the White Sox.
White Sox add Carlos Rodon, activate Jake Petricka from DL
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/20/15) The White Sox purchased the contract of left-handed pitcher Carlos Rodon Monday while also activating right-handed pitcher Jake Petricka from the 15-day disabled list.
The pair are set to strengthen the team's bullpen, which is 26th in the league with a .252 batting average against while posting a 3.86 ERA.
Rodon was the team's No. 3 overall selection in last year's draft and has thrown just 34 1/3 inings in his professional career. He's expected to pitch out of the rotation long-term but will begin his career as a reliever. The White Sox did the same thing with current ace Chris Sale, who made 79 relief appearances in 2010 and 2011 before joining the rotation in 2012 and reeling off three straight seasons with top-six Cy Young finishes.
Petricka opened the season on the disabled list due to a sore right forearm. He started his rehab assignment Thursday and is able to join the team this week after suffering no setbacks.
"It was a matter of getting rid of that soreness, and time wasn't on our side in spring and now we are here," Petricka said, per MLB.com. "I mean, I definitely wanted to be here, but it was more of a mental change than physical because the structure was fine in the arm. It was a matter of getting it feeling good again. That was a tough little battle. But it's over and now let's have a good long season."
