  • White Sox's Dylan Cease: Stingy in no-decision

    Cease didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 2-1 extra-inning win over the Tigers, allowing one run on two hits and three walks over 5.1 innings. He struck out six.

    The right-hander took a shutout into the sixth inning before Zach McKinstry tripled to lead off the frame and scored on a Cease slider that was nowhere near the plate and got away from catcher Yasmani Grandal -- part of a bizarre contest that saw all three runs in the game score on wild pitches. Cease exited after 99 pitches (62 strikes), coming just short of his sixth quality start of the year. He'll take a 4.63 ERA and 74:32 K:BB through 68 innings into his next outing, likely to come at home next weekend against the Marlins.

  • White Sox's Dylan Cease: Mixed results Sunday

    Cease did not factor into the decision Sunday, allowing four runs on four hits and four walks over four frames during a 6-5 loss against the Tigers in 10 innings. He struck out eight.

    Cease has given up a home run in seven of his past eight appearances and sports a 6.47 ERA and 1.59 WHIP during that stretch. The right-hander started the season strong, allowing just three runs over his first 16.1 innings with 24 strikeouts during that stretch, but he's struggled to find any consistency recently. Cease's eight strikeouts through four innings is encouraging, but he likely needs to make a few more adjustments to get back to where he was last year when he finished second in the AL Cy Young voting.

  • White Sox's Dylan Cease: Grabs third win

    Cease (3-3) earned the win Tuesday, allowing two runs on five hits and two walks over six innings in a 4-2 win over Cleveland. He struck out three.

    It's Cease's first win since April 10, though he's now logged quality starts in three consecutive outings, allowing five runs in that span (18.1 innings). He's found success recently despite a decline in strikeout rate -- he hasn't recorded more than six punchouts in a start since April 5, sporting a sub-par 19 percent K-rate since the beginning of May. Overall, Cease has a 4.60 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 60:25 K:BB over 11 starts (58.2 innings) this season.

  • White Sox's Dylan Cease: Pitches well, but takes loss

    Cease (2-3) took the loss Thursday, allowing three runs on five hits and one walk over 6.1 innings against the Guardians. He struck out three.

    Cease didn't get much help Thursday, as during the seventh inning Tim Anderson misplayed a groundball with the infield drawn in that allowed the go-ahead run to score. Gregory Santos then relieved Cease and gave up a single to plate Cleveland's third run. The righty has had a wild month of May, allowing 11 runs in his first two starts but just three in his last two outings. Cease is still sitting on a bloated 4.78 ERA as he tries to regain his form that led to a 2.20 ERA last season.

  • White Sox's Dylan Cease: Next start coming Thursday

    Cease is scheduled to make his next start Thursday versus the Guardians at Guaranteed Rate Field, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    Cease was initially slated to start in the White Sox's series opener with the Royals on Friday, but manager Pedro Grifol will instead use Monday's off day to reorder the rotation. Michael Kopech -- who had been in line to start Thursday's series finale with Cleveland -- will be bumped back a day to start Friday.

  • White Sox's Dylan Cease: Bounces back Saturday

    Cease did not factor in the decision against Houston on Saturday, allowing four hits and two walks while striking out five batters over six scoreless innings.

    Cease was in dire need of a strong performance after allowing 20 earned runs over 18 innings across his previous four starts. The right-hander got back on track against the Astros, yielding just four hits -- all singles -- while notching his first scoreless outing of the campaign. Cease wasn't able to end a five-start winless streak because Chicago scored just once while he was in the game; however, this was an enormously positive appearance for him and the White Sox considering his struggles of late. Cease began the campaign pitching well, so his ERA still sits at a non-catastrophic 4.86 despite the recent rough patch.

  • White Sox's Dylan Cease: Struggles again Monday

    Cease (2-2) took the loss against Kansas City on Monday, allowing seven runs on nine hits and one walk while striking out six batters over five-plus innings.

    On paper, this looked like a good bounce-back opportunity for Cease, as KC entered the contest in the bottom third of the league in runs scored. However, the right-hander gave up a season-high seven earned runs, three of which crossed the plate after he departed. The White Sox bullpen can't be entirely blamed for that -- Cease allowed all three batters he faced in the sixth to reach base, handing over a bases-loaded, no-out situation. Cease was exceptional through four starts this season, posting a 2.01 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 29:12 K:BB. He's struggled since then, however, yielding 20 earned runs across 18 innings over his subsequent four starts. Things may not get any easier in his next outing, as he's tentatively lined up for a home matchup against the Astros.

  • White Sox's Dylan Cease: Fans six in no-decision

    Cease didn't factor in the decision against Minnesota on Wednesday, allowing four runs on five hits and four walks while striking out six batters over five innings.

    Cease was spotted a three-run lead after the first inning, but he fell behind by allowing four runs between the third and fourth frames. However, Chicago came back to earn the victory and take Cease off the hook for a second straight loss. The right-hander continued to struggle with his control in Wednesday's outing, and he's now issued four or more walks in three of his seven starts this season. Cease has managed a strong 11.0 K/9 through 35.1 innings, but the walks have played a big part in his disappointing 4.58 ERA and 1.44 WHIP.

  • White Sox's Dylan Cease: Takes first loss of season

    Cease (2-1) took the loss Thursday, allowing seven runs on nine hits and two walks over four innings in a 14-5 loss against the Rays. He struck out three.

    Cease had his worst start of the season against the first-place Rays. The right-hander has now lasted just four innings in each of his last two starts. On the bright side, the 27-year-old currently ranks eleventh in the league with 37 strikeouts. Cease is tentatively slated to face the Twins at home in his next appearance.

  • White Sox's Dylan Cease: Pulled after four innings

    Cease did not factor into the decision Saturday, allowing three runs on six hits and one walk over four innings during a 4-3 loss to the Rays in extras. He struck out five.

    Cease allowed a two-run home run to Randy Arozarena in the first inning and was pulled with 101 pitches after he surrendered back-to-back singles to start the bottom of the fifth. The right-hander has given up three or fewer runs in each of his first five starts, but his four innings Saturday were a season low. He currently sports a 2.73 ERA and has a 34:13 K:BB through 26.1 innings.

  • White Sox's Dylan Cease: Struggles in no-decision

    Cease did not factor into the decision Sunday, allowing two runs on six hits with five walks over six innings in the loss against the Orioles. He struck out five.

    Despite a strong start with a four-run lead in the first inning, Cease's command faltered as he allowed the Orioles to creep back into the game. A crucial error by Jake Burger in the fourth inning allowed Cedric Mullins to hit a base-clearing triple, and Cease's wild pitch in the sixth allowed Gunnar Henderson to tie the game at 4-4. Although the 27-year-old ace was relieved later in the inning and received a no-decision, his 2.02 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, 29.3 percent strikeout rate and .143 average against reflect his status as a top pitcher. He looks to continue his dominance in his upcoming start against Tampa Bay.

  • White Sox's Dylan Cease: Picks up second victory

    Cease (2-0) earned the win Monday, allowing three runs on three hits and two walks over five innings in a 4-3 victory over the Twins. He struck out six.

    Cease clearly didn't have his best stuff on the bump Monday afternoon, but his team handed him four runs of support and it was just enough to bring home the win. The right-hander fired 62 of 98 pitches for strikes and has now fanned 23 batters in his first 16.1 innings of action to kick off the 2023 campaign.

  • White Sox's Dylan Cease: Battles mild ailment during start

    Cease said he was under the weather during his start Wednesday against the Giants, Vinnie Duber of reports.

    Cease told reporters that he didn't sleep well Tuesday night because of a mild illness and overcompensated with caffeine in the lead up to his afternoon outing on the South Side of Chicago. He issued five walks but tallied eight strikeouts and gave up only one hit -- a solo homer -- en route to a gutty victory versus San Francisco. The 27-year-old should be fully rested by his next scheduled turn in the rotation which lines up for Monday against the Twins.

  • White Sox's Dylan Cease: Walks five but picks up first win

    Cease (1-0) earned the win Wednesday, allowing one run on one hit and five walks over five innings against the Giants. He struck out eight.

    The only hit Cease allowed Wednesday was a solo blast from J.D. Davis in the top of the second inning. After not walking a batter Opening Day, the right-hander struggled with his command, but he was able to work around five walks thanks to eight strikeouts. Cease now has 18 strikeouts through his first 11.1 innings of work this season while allowing only three hits and two earned runs. His next start tentatively lines up for Monday in a road matchup against the Twins.

  • White Sox's Dylan Cease: Dominant in 10-strikeout opener

    Cease did not factor into the decision Thursday, allowing one run on two hits and zero walks over 6.1 innings in a 3-2 win over Houston. He struck out 10.

    Cease fired 62 of 86 pitches for strikes Thursday and allowed just two singles and a hit-by-pitch. The right-hander tied a franchise record by recording 10 Opening Day punchouts, and he racked up 15 swinging strikes against the defending World Series champions. Cease broke out with a career-best campaign that earned him second place in AL Cy Young voting last season, and based on his results Thursday, he could be on a trajectory to solidify his place among MLB's best pitchers in 2023.
