White Sox's Petricka nets first save with Robertson unavailable


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2015) 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.

(5/27/2015) White Sox closer David Robertson blew his second save in as many games on Wednesday against the Blue Jays. For the second straight game, he served up a ninth-inning home run to Josh Donaldson, with Wednesday's bomb tying the game at three.

"I'm not going to sit there and dwell on the fact," Robertson said of his second straight blown save, per MLB.com. "You have bad games. This is the big leagues. You're going to make mistakes. Guys are going to hit home runs. You're going to have whole runs where you have two or three bad outings in a row. You just have to push those aside and move on to the next thing. It's over. It's already done. You can't change it."

Fortunately for Robertson, the offense bailed him out by scoring twice in the top of the 10th. Robertson came back out for the bottom half and was able to secure the victory, earning his fourth win on the season.

He was like, 'Mo holds his like this and does this with it,' and I'm like, 'I wish I had a camera to record all this so I have it for future reference.'

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

“Not a big deal to me,” Robertson said Sunday, per the Chicago Sun-Times. “We have Opening Day and then a day off. I’m sure I’ll have plenty of opportunities to get back-to-backs during the season. Just because it didn’t happen in the spring doesn’t mean anything has changed.”

Robertson said his forearm soreness was normal for the spring and he is not worried about the injury as the regular season opens.

“Feeling good, yeah,” he said. “Ready to go.”

"I felt good. Obviously I got into a couple of deep counts. I would have liked to have shortened those at-bats, but I felt really good and in the end I put up a zero," said Robertson to MLB.com. "I feel like I'm throwing the ball better than I was earlier in camp. I just needed a little time to get the soreness out, have my body recoup and get ready for the next outing."


White Sox hope to have Robertson, Petricka back by Opening Day


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2015) Two key members of the White Sox bullpen are working their way back from forearm injuries, but manager Robin Ventura is confident he'll have both back by opening day. 

Closer David Robertson is scheduled to pitch on Sunday. 

"We're trying to make sure we’re extra careful with him," Ventura said, per Comcast's Dan Hayes. "He doesn’t seem to be concerned about it as much as we do."

Setup man Jake Petricka isn't as far along as Robertson. He played catch on Saturday for the first time in five days.

The Sox are taking it slow, so that the team will have both pitchers for Opening Day as well as the rest of the season. 

"You’re just making sure you’re cautious enough that you feel good about when (they go) out there that there won’t be any setbacks,” Ventura said.

White Sox's Robertson won't see 'ton of opportunities' in Cactus League


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2015) Because his role on the team is already defined, White Sox closer David Robertson is not expected to see "a ton of opportunities" during the Cactus League season, according to ESPN.

"Even talking to him, he doesn't need a lot of appearances to really be ready," manager Robin Ventura said. "I think more goes on what he does right now (in workouts before games). I know he's not going to sit there and have 20 appearances in spring training just to be ready. I would say 10, or less. Really it's up to him. He's been around long enough to understand what he needs to be ready."

Robertson signed four-year, $46 million deal with the White Sox this offseason, and is entering camp with high expectations. He converted 39 of 44 save opportunities in 2014 for the Yankees, registering a 3.08 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP over 64 1/3 innings of work.

"I really ease into spring training," Robertson said. "We've got 45 days here to get ready. If I can’t be ready in 45 days, there's something wrong. I look at it as a chance to get out here and slowly get yourself acclimated and get back to playing baseball. Obviously I've done things in the offseason to get my body to where it needs to be. It's just a matter of getting back on the field and getting in tune with everything."
