White Sox's Jesse Scholtens: Trounced by Twins
Scholtens (1-9) took the loss Friday as the White Sox were routed 10-2 by the Twins, coughing up six runs (five earned) on seven hits and three walks over four innings. He struck out five.
A second-inning grand slam by Royce Lewis set the tone for Scholtens' outing, and the right-hander needed 94 pitches (54 strikes) to record only 12 outs. He remains winless since moving into the rotation on a full-time basis at the beginning of August, stumbling to a 6.00 ERA, 1.60 WHIP and 34:16 K:BB through 45 innings, but the White Sox don't have any better starting options. Scholtens' next trip to the mound is likely to come next week on the road against the Nationals.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Jesse Scholtens: Takes eighth loss
Scholtens (1-8) took the loss Sunday, allowing three runs on eight hits and two walks over five innings in a 3-2 loss against the Tigers. He struck out four.
Detroit's three-run third inning proved to be enough to stick Scholtens with the loss, as he remains without a win since June 25. The 29-year-old Scholtens delivered three consecutive quality starts after joining the White Sox rotation in early August, though he's now allowed 19 runs across 22.2 innings over his subsequent five starts. Overall, his ERA is up to 4.44 with a 1.42 WHIP and 52:25 K:BB across 79 innings this season. Scholtens is currently lined up for a home matchup with the Twins in his next outing.... See More ...

White Sox's Jesse Scholtens: Shelled in seventh loss
Scholtens (1-7) took the loss Monday against the Royals, allowing five runs on nine hits and one walk over 3.2 innings . He struck out one.
Monday marked the third time in Scholtens' last four outings that he has allowed five earned runs. The 29-year-old rookie has struggled in his seven starts since entering the White Sox rotation post-trade deadline. He's scuffled to the tune of a 5.50 ERA and 6.3 K/9 over 36 innings since Aug. 1.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Jesse Scholtens: Sharp in no-decision
Scholtens came away with a no-decision Tuesday in the White Sox's 9-3 loss to the Orioles, allowing one run on six hits over 5.1 innings. He struck out one without walking a batter.
The right-hander wasn't dominant, managing only five swinging strikes among his 91 pitches, but he generated plenty of weak contact and didn't give up an extra-base hit before exiting the game with the score tied 1-1. It was a solid bounce-back effort for Scholtens after he'd been tagged for 10 runs over his prior two starts, but since joining the rotation for good at the beginning of August he's posted a 4.73 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 24:10 K:BB through 32.1 innings. He'll likely next take the mound early next week in Kansas City.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Jesse Scholtens: Struggles again Thursday
Scholtens allowed five runs on six hits and no walks while striking out four batters over 5.2 innings in a no-decision against Oakland on Thursday.
Scholtens made it through three scoreless frames before serving up a three-run homer to Shea Langeliers in the fourth. Langeliers tagged him for another long ball in the sixth, which came two batters after a Brent Rooker solo shot, and that ended Scholtens' night on a sour note. The right-hander has given up 10 runs over 8.2 frames across his past two outings following an intriguing stretch during which he posted three straight quality starts.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Jesse Scholtens: Cooled at Coors Field
Scholtens (1-6) took the loss against Colorado on Saturday, allowing five runs on five hits and five walks while striking out two batters over three innings.
Scholtens came into the contest with three straight quality starts since entering the rotation full-time July 29, but he couldn't extend that streak in the hitter-friendly confines of Coors Field. Though the stadium has a reputation as a launchpad for homers, that wasn't the right-hander's problem Saturday. In fact, Scholtens didn't allow any extra-base hits, but he threw only 43 of 86 pitches for a strike and walked a season-high five batters, including four in a three-run first inning. He'll probably maintain his spot in the rotation for a White Sox squad that is well out of postseason contention, but this was a definite dud following the promising start to his big-league career as a starter....

White Sox's Jesse Scholtens: Pitches well again but takes loss
Scholtens (1-5) took the loss against Milwaukee on Saturday, allowing three runs on six hits and three walks while striking out five batters over 6.1 innings.
Scholtens picked up his third straight quality start, but he doesn't have a win to show for it. The right-hander had a 2-0 lead through six frames Saturday before allowing three of the four batters he faced in the seventh to reach base. All three came around to score, saddling Scholtens with a disappointing defeat. Despite the difficulty getting into the win column, he's gained traction as a viable fantasy starter, posting a 2.95 ERA and 17:5 K:BB over 18.1 innings since moving into the rotation full-time Aug. 1....

White Sox's Jesse Scholtens: Nabs another quality start
Scholtens did not factor into the decision Sunday, allowing three runs (two earned) on six hits and a walk over six innings against the Guardians. He struck out six.
Scholtens was effective Sunday, holding Cleveland to just a pair of earned runs on a Gabriel Arias homer in the fifth inning. The 29-year-old rookie has pitched well over his last two starts, allowing just three earned runs on nine hits over 12 innings while striking out 12. Overall, Scholtens is 1-4 with a 3.06 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 35:14 K:BB across 50 innings this season. He's slated for an extended stay in Chicago's rotation following the trades of Lance Lynn and Lucas Giolito. Scholtens is tentatively lined up for a home matchup with the Brewers in his next outing.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Jesse Scholtens: Remains in rotation
Scholtens will start Sunday's game against the Guardians.
Scholtens moved from the bullpen into a starting role Tuesday after the White Sox dealt away Lance Lynn and Lucas Giolito and held his own in a matchup with a tough Texas lineup, covering six innings and striking out six while allowing one earned run on three hits and one walk. The right-hander will pick up his fourth start of the season Sunday and looks poised for an extended stay in the rotation.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Jesse Scholtens: Takes tough loss
Scholtens (1-4) took the loss Tuesday, allowing one run on three hits and one walk over six innings against the Rangers. He struck out six.
Scholtens carved up the potent Rangers offense Tuesday, needing just 80 pitches to complete six innings, but the White Sox didn't provide him with any run support and he left the game trailing 1-0. The 29-year-old rookie's only blemish came on a solo shot by Mitch Garver in the fifth inning. The majority of Scholtens' appearances have come as a reliever this year, but this strong outing may earn him some more starts down the stretch.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Jesse Scholtens: Gets starting nod Tuesday
Scholtens is scheduled to start Tuesday's game against the Rangers at Globe Life Field, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Scholtens has previously made two starts this season with the White Sox, but his last five appearances with the club has come as a reliever, with the right-hander covering no more than two innings in any of those outings. As such, Scholtens shouldn't be counted on to work deep into Tuesday's start, though the 29-year-old should have a decent chance at holding down a rotation spot moving forward. Even though Chicago returned Mike Clevinger from the injured list last week, the team still has one permanent opening in the five-man rotation after recently trading away Lucas Giolito and Lance Lynn....

White Sox's Jesse Scholtens: Working out of bullpen
Scholtens has made his last three appearances as a reliever, striking out one over 3.2 innings while allowing one unearned run on four hits and two walks.
Scholtens made his final appearance before the All-Star break as a starter, but after surrendering three runs on 11 hits in four innings against the Blue Jays in that July 6 outing, he's since moved back to the bullpen. Touki Toussaint has taken over as the White Sox's No. 5 starter and thus far performed well enough to hold down that role until Chicago gets Mike Clevinger (biceps) back from the 15-day injured list....

White Sox's Jesse Scholtens: Dinged for 11 hits in start
Scholtens allowed three runs one 11 hits and no walks while striking out one batter over four-plus innings in a no-decision against Toronto on Thursday.
Scholtens made just the second start of his major-league career, though he's frequently pitched multiple innings in long relief. The right-hander fooled few Blue Jays batters, notching just four whiffs and one punchout, so he was fortunate to give up only three runs despite yielding a career-worst 11 hits. Scholtens has been pretty good out of the bullpen this season, posting a 2.78 ERA over 22.2 innings entering Thursday. It's uncertain if he'll get another chance to start after the All-Star break with both Mike Clevinger (biceps) and Michael Kopech (shoulder) approaching activation from the injured list....

White Sox's Jesse Scholtens: Getting ball in second game
Scholtens will start for the White Sox in the second game of Thursday's doubleheader against the White Sox, LaMond Pope of the Chicago Tribune reports.
All but one of Scholtens' 10 appearances for the White Sox this season have come in relief, but he's provided plenty of bulk in going four innings each of his last two times out. Chicago does still figure to use plenty of arms in the nightcap, so they'll be hoping for length out of Lance Lynn in the afternoon tilt.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Jesse Scholtens: Nabs win in bulk role
Scholtens (1-2) allowed two hits and a walk while striking out three over four scoreless innings to earn the win Sunday over the Red Sox.
Scholtens ended up pitching the most innings of four White Sox pitchers in the contest, piggybacking opener Tanner Banks's 2.2 innings of one-run ball. Scholtens' third stint in the big leagues has been much more effective than his first two -- he's pitched 6.2 consecutive scoreless innings since he was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte on June 16. He's at a 2.31 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 13:9 K:BB through 23.1 innings over nine outings (one start) this season. With Mike Clevinger (biceps) likely out through the end of the month, Scholtens could get one more chance to cover bulk-relief innings. That would line up as a road appearance versus the Athletics, though it's far from a guarantee he'll get the assignment.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Jesse Scholtens: Secures first save
Scholtens picked up the save in Saturday's 4-3 victory over the Mariners, striking out one over a perfect inning.
Scholtens was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte on Friday and tossed a scoreless inning in his first appearance since May 31. He was called upon again Saturday, but this time in an extra-innings save opportunity, as Joe Kelly and Kendall Graveman were likely unavailable after recently pitching back-to-back days. Scholtens didn't disappoint and secured his first career save with a perfect inning, but he isn't expected to be used in high-leverage situations on a regular basis.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Jesse Scholtens: Summoned to big leagues
Scholtens was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte on Friday, Vinnie Duber of AllCHGO.com reports.
The righty is taking the spot of Mike Clevinger (biceps) and looks like a candidate to take his place in the rotation as well, if he's not needed in relief before then. Scholtens holds a 3.24 ERA and 9:8 K:BB over 16.2 innings covering one start and four relief appearances with the big club this season.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Jesse Scholtens: Optioned to Triple-A
Scholtens was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte on Friday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.
Scholtens will return to Charlotte after being called up May 22, appearing in three games, including one start, over his second stint with the White Sox this season. The right-hander performed adequately enough, allowing five runs on eight hits and six walks while striking out five batters over 13.2 innings in those outings. Scholtens will likely continue to bounce between the majors and minors as a depth option over the summer.... See More ... See Less
