  • White Sox's Nick Nastrini: Called up for major-league debut

    The White Sox selected Nastrini's contract from Triple-A Charlotte on Monday.

    Nastrini is set to make his major-league debut Monday against the Royals. The 24-year-old posted a 7.71 ERA in two starts with Charlotte, although that came with a 13:3 K:BB across seven innings. Nastrini was also impacted by an illness in his first start with Charlotte before pitching better his next time out, allowing three runs (two earned) with an 8:1 K:BB in four frames. He got his pitch count to 78 in that outing, so he should be get for 90 or so Monday.

  • White Sox's Nick Nastrini: Making major-league debut Monday

    Nastrini is expected to be called up from Triple-A Charlotte and start Chicago's series opener against the Royals on Monday, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

    Nastrini appears set to make his major-league debut with the White Sox, joining the big-league roster after producing an inflated 7.71 ERA over seven innings in two starts with Charlotte so far this season. The right-hander will look to make the most of his opportunity against a red-hot Royals team.

  • White Sox's Nick Nastrini: Coming back from illness

    White Sox general manager Chris Getz revealed Thursday that Nastrini has been battling an illness at Triple-A Charlotte, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

    Nastrini made his first start of the season for Charlotte on Wednesday and was bludgeoned for four runs on seven hits and two walks over just three innings, with Getz noting that the right-hander's stuff wasn't sharp, likely as a result of the illness. While Nastrini remains a candidate to start Monday in Cleveland, it's looking like the plan might be to keep him at Charlotte for a while, per James Fegan of SoxMachine.com. The Sox could be leaning toward filling the fifth slot in their rotation with bullpen games until Mike Clevinger is ready, which is expected to happen around May 1.

  • White Sox's Nick Nastrini: Could start Monday

    Nastrini, who is scheduled to make his first start of the season for Triple-A Charlotte on Wednesday, could be called up to start for the White Sox next Monday in Cleveland, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    The White Sox headed into Opening Day with a four-man rotation, but had the team included a fifth starter on the 26-man roster, Nastrini might have been in line for the spot. Chicago has since addressed its need for rotation depth with the re-signing of Mike Clevinger earlier this week, but because he missed all of spring training, the veteran right-hander could need a week or more to get fully stretched out before he's ready to make his season debut. After a postponement Wednesday, the White Sox will need a fifth starter for the first time this season Monday against the Guardians, and Nastrini would seem to be the most logical choice to fill the opening if manager Pedro Grifol doesn't opt for a bullpen day instead. Even if he gets the nod Monday in what would be his MLB debut, Nastrini may not be in store for additional starts beyond that if Clevinger is ready to pitch by mid-April.

  • White Sox's Nick Nastrini: Strong spring continues

    Nastrini allowed three hits and two walks while striking out two across four scoreless innings in Sunday's Cactus League game against the Athletics.

    Nastrini has moved into the rotation picture due to a combination of his strong performances this spring and Dylan Cease being dealt away. He's yet to make his big-league debut but did close the 2023 campaign at Triple-A Charlotte, where he managed a 23:10 K:BB across 19.2 innings. Nastrini has continued to turn heads in the exhibition season, maintaining a 0.82 ERA and 0.82 WHIP with an 11:4 K:BB across 11 frames.

  • White Sox's Nick Nastrini: Competing for rotation spot

    Nastrini has allowed just one run over seven innings this spring as he attempts to win a spot in the White Sox' rotation, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Nastrini has permitted just two hits and two walks over those seven frames, recording nine strikeouts along the way. Acquired from the Dodgers at last year's trade deadline, Nastrini is not on the 40-man roster, but the White Sox have at least one rotation spot up for grabs and the 24-year-old is in the running. He'll get another start Sunday versus the Athletics as he continues to state his case.

  • White Sox's Nick Nastrini: Dealt to White Sox

    The Dodgers traded Nastrini, Jordan Leasure and Trayce Thompson to the White Sox on Friday in exchange for Lance Lynn and Joe Kelly, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

    A fourth-round pick in the 2021 MLB Draft out of UCLA, Nastrini has pitched to a 4.02 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 85:27 K:BB in 73.2 innings (17 starts) this season at Double-A Tulsa. The 23-year-old right-hander will presumably report to the Double-A affiliate of the White Sox in Birmingham.

  • Dodgers' Nick Nastrini: Makes season debut

    Nastrini (undisclosed) made his season debut Thursday after being assigned to Double-A Tulsa, pitching three scoreless innings and striking out four in a 3-0 win over Wichita. He scattered one hit and three walks in the 47-pitch outing.

    Nastrini was held back in extended spring training to begin the Double-A season, either due to an injury or in a deliberate measure by the Dodgers to manage his innings. Whatever the case, the 23-year-old right-hander was cleared to make his debut two weeks into the season and generally looked good, aside from the three walks. Keeping the free passes in check will be essential for Nastrini to find success down the road, and until he's able to do that in the higher levels of the minors, the Dodgers may be reluctant to push him to the big leagues.

  • Dodgers' Nick Nastrini: Building up in extended ST

    Nastrini (undisclosed) is building up arm strength in extended spring training and will eventually report to Double-A Tulsa, Jim Callis of MLB.com reports.

    We don't have an official injury for Nastrini like we do with teammate Bobby Miller (shoulder), who is also getting held back in extended spring training. It's unclear if this is a significant setback or not, but Nastrini has been a strikeout machine in pro ball and will focus on limiting the free passes when he is ready to return to Double-A.
