The White Sox had good enough pitching all around to help them win 6 in a row over the past week. Of the starters, this week’s starting pitcher of the week award goes to both Gavin Floyd and John Danks.
Floyd went 1-0 in his one start this week. He pitched 6 innings giving up just 1 earned run on 5 hits. He earned 5 strikeouts and gave up 2 walks. He posted a 1.50 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP, the best WHIP posted by a starter this week.
Danks pitched just as well as Floyd, going 1-0 in his one start. He went 7 innings and gave up 1 earned run on 6 hits. He gave up 3 walks and had 5 strikeouts as well. He posted a 1.29 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP.
Edwin Jackson: (1-0) 8.2 IP, 3 ER, 7 H, 1 BB, 11 SO, 3.12 ERA, .92 WHIP
For the bullpen, there were three guys that I feel deserve this weeks award for the outstanding work all three of them did. So for this week, the award goes to Chris Sale, Sergio Santos, and Scott Linebrink.
Chris Sale had yet another good week. He pitched 3 innings giving up no runs for a 0.00 ERA. He had a 2.00 WHIP while earning his first career save and 2 holds. He gave up 2 hits and 4 walks, as well as 5 strikeouts.
Sergio Santos did a little better than Sale in his 2 2/3 innings this week. Santos earned 3 holds while giving up 3 hits. He had two strikeouts to give himself a 1.13 WHIP to go along with his 0.00 ERA.
Scott Linebrink gave up some runs but ended up going 2-0 this week, more wins than any starter this week. In his 3 games he pitched 3 2/3 innings earning a hold. He gave up 1 run on 1 hit with 3 strikeouts. He had a 0.27 WHIP and an ERA of 2.45.
