White Sox closer David Roberston picks up third save of the year


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) White Sox closer David Robertson worked a two-hit ninth inning, but did not allow a run en route to his third save of the season in Chicago's 5-3 win over the Royals Sunday.

Robertson allowed two singles in the ninth, but his two strikeouts and groundout by Omar Infante was good enough to end the game.

"It probably was an interesting situation for him essentially starting a game," White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers said of Robertson's throwing twice Sunday. "The typical Robertson. Came in, shut them down, gave us a chance in the bottom and on the save right there, he just missed a couple spots and ended up giving up the base hits. But other than that, he went right back to executing pitches."

Robertson is yet to allow a run in his seven innings of work with 14 strikeouts and just one walk.

White Sox David Robertson helping Zach Putnam learn cutter


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2015) White Sox closer David Robertson learned the cutter from one of baseball's best practitioners of the pitch--Mariano Rivera. 

Robertson is now passing on that knowledge to Chicago bullpen-mate Zach Putnam

"I'm trying to have him impart some of that knowledge on to me as I develop that pitch as a third pitch," Putnam said, per MLB.com. "It was almost surreal listening to him talk yesterday. 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.' But I'm trying to learn from him whenever I can."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Roberston threw just 11 pitches, eight of them for strikes, to close out the game. He struck out his fifth batter of the season and has only allowed one hit and one walk on the season. 

"Obviously it ran through my head a couple times in spring, I was like, 'Oh, I better start throwing a little better because they want to see they're getting something good for what they paid for,' " Robertson said. "It was just a matter of time, just letting those spring training outings blow by and get to the real games."

White Sox's Robertson says he is 'feeling good' as season begins


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2015) White Sox closer David Robertson wasn't able to throw on consecutive days in spring training, partly due to a forearm injury that sidelined him for a week. However, Robertson isn't concerned about his spring workload.

“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.”


White Sox pitcher David Robertson tosses one scoreless inning


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/29/2015) White Sox relief pitcher David Robertson tossed one scoreless inning Sunday with 17 pitches, inducing three groundouts.

Robertson, who is working his way back from forearm soreness, threw 10 strikes and didn't allow a hit. Robertson felt strong after the outing, but won't throw on back-to-back days this week. He might pitch in another game and then throw a bullpen session, according to ESPNChicago.com.

"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. 


Soreness sidelines White Sox pitcher David Robertson


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2015) White Sox pitcher David Robertson hasn't pitched in game since Saturday due to soreness, pitching coach Don Cooper said, per the Chicago Tribune. The soreness Robertson is experiencing is in his forearm, but he said he isn't concerned.

"I'm not going for MRIs or anything like that," Robertson said.

Robertson threw a side session Thursday which went well, reports CSN Chicago. Manager Robin Ventura said Robertson's soreness was typical for spring training and he's not concerned with his Opening Day status.


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."


Robertson, White Sox agree on four year, $46 million deal


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/9/2014) Free agent closer David Robertson has agreed to a four-year, $46 million deal with the Chicago White Sox, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Report: White Sox expressed 'serious' interest in David Robertson


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2014) The White Sox have expressed "serious" interest in signing relief pitcher David Robertson, George A. King III of the New York Post reports on Monday. Robertson is seeking a four-year deal in the $50 million neighborhood, which would be a record for a reliever.

"They like him a lot and he is definitely on their radar," said a person with knowledge of Chicago’s offseason plans. "They have several things they want to do and he is one of them."

Robertson converted 39 of 44 save opportunities in 2014, registering a 3.08 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP over 64 1/3 innings of work.


Yankees more likely to sign Andrew Miller than David Robertson


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/2/2014) It appears the Yankees are more likely to sign free agent reliever Andrew Miller than re-sign closer David Robertson, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Robertson could land a deal more lucrative than Jonathan Papelbon's four-year, $50 million contract, which is a record for a reliever. While Robertson is likely to make in the range of $12 million to $14 million per season, Miller could be in the range of $8 million to $11 million, which appears to be more to the Yankees liking.


Report: Astros interested in closer David Robertson


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/22/2014) The Astros have expressed interest in signing pitcher David Robertson, reports the New York Post.

The Astros are in the market for a closer and the team has contacted Robertson’s agent.

In 2014, Robertson saved 39 games for the Yankees and the team is interested in bringing him back, but are reportedly hesitant to offer him a four-year deal.


Report: David Robertson remains Yankees' top priority


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/15/2014) The Yankees' "absolute top priority" remains re-signing closer David Robertson, the New York Daily News reports.

According to the report, general manager Brian Cashman's game plan this offseason is to improve by building an elite bullpen and matching it with a more productive and versatile bench. The team has already re-signed fourth outfielder Chris Young and traded a backup catcher for lefty reliever Justin Wilson. Following that game plan, retaining Robertson will be prioritized over bringing back free agents Chase Headley and Brandon McCarthy.


Report: Reliever David Robertson seeking 'Papelbon money'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/12/2014) Free agent reliever David Robertson, who turned down a one-year, $15.3 million qualifying offer from the Yankees, is looking for "Papelbon money," a baseball official with knowledge of the negotiations told ESPN.

Jonathan Papelbon signed a four-year, $50 million deal with the Phillies in 2011, which was the richest overall contract for a reliever. If Papelbon finishes 15 games in 2015, then his contract vests for a fifth year at $13 million, which would increase the value of the contract to $63 million.

If Robertson can land a deal similar to Papelbon's contract, then it appears doubtful the Yankees would match the offer. Because Robertson declined his qualifying offer, the Yankees would receive a draft pick as compensation, if he signs with another team.


Report: Tigers will not pursue free agent David Robertson


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/12/2014) The Tigers will not be pursuing free agent closer David Robertson, Detroit general manager Dave Dombrowski told the New York Post

The Tigers were viewed as a team that could target Robertson in free agency, but Dombrowski said the organization picked up Joakim Soria's $7 million option to avoid the late-inning relief market.

Robertson turned down the Yankees' one-year, $15.3 million qualifying offer. If he signs with another team, New York will receive draft-pick compensation.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2014) Yankees closer David Robertson has turned down the team's one-year, $15.3 million qualifying offer, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. If Robertson chooses to sign with another team, the Yankees will receive draft-pick compensation.

Robertson had a career-high 39 saves in 2014, which was his first full season as the team's closer in place of the retired Mariano Rivera. He had a 4-5 record, 3.08 ERA and 1.06 WHIP over 63 outings. He also struck out 13.4 batters per nine innings.


Yankees offer closer David Robertson qualifying offer


(11/3/2014) As anticipated, the Yankees offered closer David Robertson a $15.3 million qualifying offer Monday for the 2015 season. Robertson will have one week to accept or decline the offer.

Robertson filled in admirably for the Yankees following the retirement of legendary closer Mariano Rivera after the 2013 season. In 2014, he had 39 saves with a 3.08 ERA.


Yankees leaning toward qualifying offer for David Robertson


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/31/2014) The Yankees are leaning toward giving closer David Robertson a qualifying offer, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

While the move is not official, the club is thinking of extending the $15.3 million offer to Robertson. If Robertson receives the offer, he can either return to the Yankees for one year at that price, or decline and seek more money on the market. If Robertson leaves, the Yankees would be eligible to receive a draft pick as compensation. Robertson was fantastic in his first season as the team's closer, posting a 3.08 ERA and 39 saves over 64 1/3 innings.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
