Player Notes
White Sox placed RHP Zach Putnam on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation.

Advice: This comes on the heels of Putnam allowing one unearned run on two hits and two walks over one inning of work Wednesday against the Royals. It's unclear how long he'll be sidelined, but Jacob Petricka is now the clear favorite for save chances in Chicago.

White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Sunday that Zach Putnam and Jacob Petricka are the favorites to be used in the ninth inning when the team has a lead.

Advice: Putnam has earned saves in back-to-back games and Petricka notched his third save of the season earlier this month. The former is looking like the best bet of the two at the moment, but Ventura has been hesitant to this point to name one closer since Matt Lindstrom (ankle) went down. Lindstrom, by the way, is expected back in a couple weeks.

Zach Putnam earned his third save of the 2014 as the White Sox beat the Astros 4-3 on Saturday.

Advice: Putnam was called upon to get the final out after Jake Petricka put two men on. The right-hander needed only five pitches to strike out Jason Castro and end the game. He also earned a save on Friday night and appears to be the front-runner for saves in Chicago going forward.

Zach Putnam secured his second save of the season on Friday, working a perfect ninth inning to protect a one-run lead against the Astros.

Advice: Putnam looked especially impressive in doing so also, striking out two of the three hitters that he squared off against. He now owns a 2.43 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 31/13 K/BB ratio over his first 37 innings. He looks to be the best option that Robin Ventura currently has in the ninth inning, so those speculating on saves in deeper mixed leagues may want to take a chance on him.
