White Sox's Shane Drohan: Undergoes surgery
Drohan underwent shoulder surgery Thursday, Vinnie Duber of AllCHGO.com reports.
Drohan is expected to begin a throwing program by the end of the spring, but it's unclear how long it will be before he takes the mound for the White Sox. The 25-year-old Rule 5 Draft pick posted a 6.37 ERA and 1.85 WHIP across 89 innings with Boston's Triple-A affiliate last year. While most of Drohan's minor-league appearances came as a starter, it's possible the White Sox bring him back to serve as a multi-inning reliever.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Shane Drohan: Headed to White Sox
Drohan was selected by the White Sox in the Rule 5 Draft on Wednesday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.
Drohan is a lefty with a plus changeup who contributed a 5.05 ERA and 129:72 K:BB over 123 innings between Double-A Portland and Triple-A Worcester in 2023. The White Sox figure to keep him stretched out as a starter in spring training but could wind up stashing him in long relief if he makes the roster.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Shane Drohan: Exits start with calf cramp
Drohan was removed from his most recent start Sunday with Triple-A Worcester ahead of the fifth inning due to a calf cramp, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
Drohan struck out a batter and allowed three hits and three walks over four scoreless innings before being lifted from the contest when he felt discomfort in his calf while warming up prior to the fifth inning. Fortunately for Drohan, his injury wasn't deemed to be anything too serious, and Worcester is still proceeding as though he'll be able to make his next turn through the rotation in Buffalo later this week. The southpaw has posted a 5.03 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 33:27 K:BB over 39.1 innings at Worcester since being promoted from Double-A Portland in mid-May.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Shane Drohan: Bumped up to Triple-A
The Red Sox promoted Drohan from Double-A Portland to Triple-A Worcester on Monday, Chris Henrique of the "Beyond the Monster" podcast reports.
After finishing the 2022 campaign at Portland, Drohan returned to the Eastern League for the start of the 2023 season and proved to be one of the better arms on the circuit. In his six starts with Portland, the 24-year-old lefty submitted a 1.32 ERA (3.03 xFIP), 0.82 WHIP and 21.1 K-BB% over 34 innings. Now on the doorstep of the big leagues, Drohan could have a chance to debut for Boston later in the season if he continues to dominate at Worcester, though the Red Sox's ample starting depth means he may need an injury or two to hit the rotation before he gets a promotion....

Red Sox's Shane Drohan: Dominant in Eastern League
Drohan allowed one hit and two walks while striking out four over six scoreless innings to earn his fifth win in five starts for Double-A Portland on Thursday.
Drohan picked up where he left off in April, for which he was named the Eastern League Pitcher of the Month, per Christopher Smith of MassLive.com. The lefty, drafted in fifth round in 2020 out of Florida State University, is an under-the-radar prospect that started to blip on the radar in 2022. Drohan mostly lives in the 92-to-95 mph range with his fastball and augments it with a curve and changeup. Most notably in 2023, the 24-year-old former Seminole is cutting down on walks, lowering his rate to 1.9 BB/9 from 3.96 last season. The free pass has been an issue for Drohan since his college days (8.43 BB/9).... See More ... See Less
