White Sox juggle rotation
PITTSBURGH – The Chicago White Sox pushed back Carson Fulmer's next turn in their rotation and plan to give Hector Santiago a spot start.
Fulmer was originally scheduled to pitch today at Pittsburgh, but instead will go Friday against Texas.
The 24-year-old Fulmer is 2-3 with a 6.23 ERA in eight games, seven starts, this year. He lasted just 12/3 innings in his previous outing against the Cubs on Friday, yielding five runs.
Instead, Santiago will start. He has made two starts this season, going 0-1 with an 11.25 ERA. In nine appearances in relief, he has a 3.26 ERA. His longest outing was 42/3 innings.
