White Sox's Dylan Cease: Allows one run in tough-luck loss
Cease (7-9) took the loss Friday, allowing one run on four hits and two walks over five innings against the Padres. He struck out seven.
Cease was highly effective but far from efficient in needing 104 pitches to complete five frames. The only run he allowed came in the fifth, when Matthew Batten struck out but advanced all the way to second base on a wild pitch. He then took third on another wild pitch before being driven in by a Xander Bogaerts sac fly. While Cease's season total of 214 strikeouts is elite, the 27-year-old has struggled to a 4.58 ERA and 1.42 WHIP in 177 innings. He finished strong with a 1.93 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 31 strikeouts across 23.1 innings over his final four starts, however.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Dylan Cease: Twirls gem in no-decision
Cease did not factor into the decision Saturday, allowing six hits over seven scoreless innings against the Red Sox. He struck out 11 without issuing any free passes.
Cease was masterful during Saturday's rain-soaked contest in Boston, but he didn't receive any run support and had to settle for a no-decision. The 27-year-old avoided issuing any walks for the first time in 13 second-half starts and notched his first double-digit strikeout effort since June 26. Despite a disappointing campaign for last year's AL Cy Young runner-up, Cease has now amassed 200-plus strikeouts for the third consecutive season, joining the ranks of Chris Sale (2013-2016) and Ed Walsh (1910-1912) as the only White Sox pitchers to achieve the feat. Cease is tentatively projected to face the Padres at home in the club's final regular-season series next week.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Dylan Cease: Quality start marred by home run
Cease (7-8) took the loss Sunday, allowing three runs on four hits and three walks over six innings against the Twins. He struck out five.
The positive is that Cease contributed his first quality start in over a month. Cease cruised through four, but a lack of run support combined with a 34-pitch fifth inning that was culminated by an Edouard Julien three-run homer sealed Cease's fate and paved the way for his eighth loss. Cease has now allowed 38 hits and 16 walks over his last six starts with an ERA of 7.71 in 31.2 innings. He's currently penciled in to take the mound next weekend in Boston.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Dylan Cease: Strikes out eight in win
Cease (7-7) earned the win Tuesday, allowing one run on four hits and a walk over 5.1 innings against Kansas City. He struck out eight.
It was a step in the right direction for Cease, who'd struggled to a 9.30 ERA in his prior four starts (20.1 innings). While efficiency remains an issue for Cease (he needed 102 pitches to get through 5.1 innings Tuesday), his 10.8 K/9 ranks as the seventh-highest figure in MLB. Cease's ERA now sits at 4.87 with a 1.46 WHIP and 191:74 K:BB through 30 starts (159 innings) this season. He'll look to build on Tuesday's outing in his next start, currently scheduled for this weekend against the Twins.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Dylan Cease: Scheduled start postponed
Cease will not make his scheduled start Monday against the Royals with the contest being postponed due to rain.
While Cease will not take the mound Monday, he will get the ball in the first game of the doubleheader that will be played Tuesday, and if he remains on regular rest he will still make two starts before the week comes to a close.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Dylan Cease: Another rocky outing
Cease did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing five runs (four earned) on eight hits and two walks over 5.1 innings against Kansas City. He struck out seven.
After giving up 13 earned runs in his last two starts (10.1 innings), Cease gave up four more runs Tuesday and allowed at least six hits for a fourth consecutive outing. Cease also couldn't keep the ball in the stadium Tuesday, serving up solo home runs to Nelson Velazquez, Michael Massey and MJ Melendez before getting pulled midway through the sixth frame. If fantasy managers are looking for a positive takeaway from Cease's performance, it would be that he fanned seven batters and increased his streak of starts with at least six K's to six....

White Sox's Dylan Cease: Allows five runs in win
Cease (6-7) earned the win Wednesday, allowing five runs on six hits and three walks over six innings against the Orioles. He struck out seven.
Cease got off to a horrendous start, allowing four runs on four hits in the first inning while also hitting Cedric Mullins with a pitch. He then surrendered a solo shot to Anthony Santander to open the third before hurling three scoreless frames to finish the day. The right-hander has now allowed at least five runs in back-to-back starts and has given up at least four runs in three straight. Furthermore, he's walked multiple batters in each of his last nine starts and holds an unflattering 33:22 K:BB in August.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Dylan Cease: Ambushed by A's
Cease (5-7) took the loss Friday as the White Sox were trounced 12-4 by the A's, surrendering nine runs (eight earned) on nine hits and five walks over 4.1 innings. He struck out six.
After a scoreless first inning, Oakland jumped on Cease for five runs in the second, and Chicago never recovered. The right-hander tossed only 52 of 96 pitches for strikes as he continues to fall apart in August -- Cease has been tagged for at least five earned runs in three of five starts this month, stumbling to an 8.61 ERA, 2.13 WHIP and 26:19 K:BB through 23 innings. He'll try to turn things around in his next outing, likely to come next week in Baltimore.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Dylan Cease: Struggles versus Rockies
Cease allowed five runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out six over 4.2 innings, taking a no-decision versus the Rockies on Sunday.
Cease was in line for the loss before the White Sox rallied ahead in the eighth inning. He's failed to complete five innings twice over four starts in August, allowing 14 runs across 18.2 innings this month. For the season, Cease is at a 4.50 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 163:63 K:BB over 138 innings through 26 starts. He's projected to make his next appearance at home versus the Athletics.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Dylan Cease: No run support in loss
Cease (5-6) suffered a loss Sunday against the Brewers after allowing two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out seven in seven innings.
Cease notched his highest strikeout total since July 22 and reached seven innings for the first time all year. The Brewers manufactured a run on a sacrifice fly in the second after kicking off the inning with back-to-back singles and then tacked on another in the fifth while the White Sox were blanked until the ninth. Cease registered an elite 39 percent CSW rate in the outing but still managed to come out on the losing end for a third time in his last four tries. He now owns a 4.32 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 157:61 K:BB in 133.1 innings and lines up for a start in Coors Field next weekend.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Dylan Cease: Nabs win despite seven free passes
Cease (5-5) tossed 5.1 scoreless innings in a win over the Yankees on Monday, allowing one hit and seven walks while striking out six batters.
It's not often that a hurler issues seven walks and keeps the opponent scoreless -- in fact, Cease is the first White Sox pitcher to do it since Dan Wright in 2001, per Christopher Kamka of NBC Sports Chicago. Cease's success was centered on holding New York to just one hit, which didn't come until there were two outs in the top of the sixth inning. That DJ LeMahieu single resulted in the veteran hurler getting the hook after 104 pitches (only 58 of which were strikes), but Brett Honeywell managed to work out of a bases-loaded jam to keep Cease's scoreless outing intact. It's unlikely that Cease will pair this level of wildness with success often, but his final stat line was much more palatable than the seven-run, 1.2 inning shelling he took against Texas his last time out....

White Sox's Dylan Cease: Can't get out of second frame
Cease (4-5) took the loss against Texas on Wednesday, allowing seven runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out one batter over 1.2 innings.
By almost every measure, this was Cease's worst outing of the season. He logged his shortest start to date -- previously, he had completed at least four innings in each of his 22 appearances -- and tied a season-worst mark with the seven runs he allowed. Cease also recorded his lowest strikeout total of the season with the single punchout he was able to muster. The right-hander served up a two-run homer to Corey Seager in the first inning, but his demise was the second, when he allowed five runs on three singles, a double and three walks. The poor outing pushed Cease's season ERA to 4.61, which would be his worst mark since his rookie 2019 campaign.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Dylan Cease: Falls to Cleveland
Cease (4-4) took the loss Thursday, allowing four runs on nine hits and two walks over 5.2 innings against Cleveland. He struck out five.
Cease's final line certainly could've been uglier as he surrendered nine hits, including four for extra bases. Still, it was a tough outing for the 27-year-old right-hander after he allowed just two runs over his previous two starts (11 innings). Cease now sports a 4.15 ERA with a 1.34 WHIP and 143:49 K:BB across 22 starts (119.1 innings) this season. He'll look to get back on track in his next outing, currently scheduled for next week against Texas.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Dylan Cease: Strikes out nine
Cease allowed a run on three hits and two walks while striking out nine over six innings in a no-decision versus the Twins on Saturday.
Cease pitched well enough to win, but Keynan Middleton and Gregory Santos couldn't preserve the lead in the seventh inning. This was Cease's first quality start in four July outings -- he's given up 10 runs over 22.1 innings in that span. The right-hander is now at a 4.04 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 138:47 K:BB through 113.2 innings over 21 starts this season. He's projected for a home start versus the Guardians next week.... See More ...
