  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Activated for Game 2

    Lopez (back) was reinstated from the 15-day injured list ahead of Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Royals, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Lopez suffered the injury during his first appearance after the All-Star break, but he's now been cleared to rejoin Chicago's active roster. The 28-year-old has been a key bullpen piece for the White Sox this year with a 2.98 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 44:8 K:BB across 42.1 innings.

  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Ramping up

    Lopez (back) threw a bullpen session Wednesday and will throw a sim game over the weekend, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Lopez was placed on the injured list July 28, but the move was retroactive to July 25. It was hoped that he would have only a minimum stint, and this ramp-up schedule suggests he could be activated when first eligible Tuesday. Lopez has been a key part of the White Sox's bullpen, maintaining a 2.98 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 44:8 K:BB across 42.1 innings for the season.

  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Eyeing minimum-length IL stint

    Lopez (back) said Sunday that he's making good progress and expects to return from the 15-day injured list when first eligible Aug. 9, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    Lopez's lower-back strain forced him to the IL on Thursday, but he already resumed throwing Saturday after two doctors quickly determined he wouldn't require surgery to address the injury. The right-hander has converted to a full-time relief role in 2022 and has generated a 2.98 ERA and 1.06 WHIP in 42.1 innings while collecting four wins and four holds.

  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Placed on injured list

    Lopez was placed on the 15-day injured list with a lower-back strain Thursday, retroactive to July 25.

    Lopez's back injury has kept him off the mound since Saturday, and he'll be sidelined for at least another week and a half after being diagnosed with a strain. It's not yet clear when the White Sox expect the right-hander will return to action.

  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Dealing with back issue

    Lopez hasn't pitched since Saturday while managing a back injury, Vinnie Duber of AllCHGO.com reports.

    Lopez surrendered a run over one-third of an inning and was charged with a blown save Saturday, though it's unclear if that's when the back issue first surfaced. The White Sox have a scheduled day off Thursday, and it's unclear if the 31-year-old, who has a 3.61 ERA across 77.1 innings this year, will be available Friday versus the A's.

  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Solid in opener role

    Lopez allowed a hit while striking out three batters over two shutout frames as the opener during Friday's win over the Rangers.

    Lopez coughed up a single to Sam Huff in the second inning but was otherwise perfect in his short outing. He lowered his season ERA to 3.96 through 25 frames. It was the first time that he completed at least two innings since May 26.

  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Serving as opener

    Lopez will serve as the opener Friday against the Rangers, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    Lopez has 96 career major-league starts to his name, but don't expect him to pitch particularly deep in this contest even though he's listed as the starter. He's topped out at two innings so far this season and is unlikely to throw any more than that Friday before handing the ball to Davis Martin.

  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Suffers first loss

    Lopez (4-1) allowed two runs on two hits and no walks while striking out one across two innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Royals.

    Lopez entered the game in the sixth inning with the score tied 2-2. He immediately ran into trouble, surrendering a single, a triple and a sacrifice fly to account for the two tallies against him, though he returned for a clean frame in the seventh. Lopez had turned in six straight appearances without an earned run -- spanning 6.1 innings -- prior to Wednesday's loss, also picking up two wins and a hold in that span. For the season, Lopez has a 4.02 ERA with a 1.09 WHIP across 15.2 frames.

  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Moves past back issue

    Lopez (back) made a pair of relief appearances during the White Sox's series with the Yankees over the weekend, striking out three over two scoreless frames while allowing one hit and walking none.

    Lopez wasn't available for a few days after suffering from lower-back tightness during his prior relief appearance May 9 against the Guardians, but he looks to be back to full strength heading into the White Sox's eight-game week.

  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Playing catch Wednesday

    Lopez (back) will play catch from 90 feet Wednesday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Lopez exited Monday's game against the Guardians with lower-back tightness, but his pain is subsiding ahead of Wednesday's throwing session. Assuming he feels good after playing catch, the White Sox hope Lopez will be able to resume a normal routine in 2-to-3 days.

  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Exits with trainer

    Lopez left Monday night's game against the Gurdians with lower-back tightness, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Lopez will be considered day-to-day until further notice. He gave up a hit in a scoreless inning prior to departing.

  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Picks up fourth win

    Lopez (4-0) allowed three hits and struck out one across two scoreless innings to earn the win Saturday against the Red Sox.

    Lopez entered the game in the eighth inning and had a relatively smooth start to his appearance. However, he allowed two runners to reach scoring position in the ninth frame before striking out Bobby Dalbec and forcing Trevor Story to pop out to escape the jam. Lopez has pitched exclusively out of the bullpen this season and has a 4.22 ERA and 1.22 WHIP with a 7:4 K:BB across 10.2 innings.

  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Earns win in relief

    Lopez (3-0) earned the win, striking out one in a scoreless inning during a 3-1 victory Tuesday over the Cubs.

    Lopez entered the game with a man on first and no outs in the fifth inning, getting a double-play ball and recording a strikeout to complete the inning. Despite his 3-0 record, Lopez has been inconsistent in the early going. In four of his outings, he's retired every batter he's faced but in the other three, he's allowed at least a run on multiple hits and one or more walks. Cumulatively, he has a 5.40 ERA and 1.20 WHIP.

  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Working as reliever

    Manager Tony La Russa said Sunday that Lopez will work out of the bullpen for the time being, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    Vince Velasquez is Chicago's No. 5 starter to open the campaign with Lance Lynn (knee) out, and Lopez will remain in relief for now despite the fact Lucas Giolito is headed to the injured list after suffering an abdominal strain Opening Day. Lopez is likely to receive some starts at some point this season, but they apparently won't be coming in the immediate future.

  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Gets $525,000 raise

    Lopez and the White Sox agreed Tuesday on a one-year, $2.625 million contract to avoid arbitration, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    Lopez was productive over his 20 appearances (nine starts) in 2021, finishing with a 3.55 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 55:13 K:BB across 57.2 innings. However, because he wasn't a full-time member of the rotation last season like he was in 2020, Lopez will get a modest raise of $525,000 in his penultimate arbitration year. Lopez may have to settle for a long-relief role to begin 2022 if all of Lance Lynn, Lucas Giolito, Dylan Cease, Dallas Keuchel and Michael Kopech are deemed ready to go for Opening Day.

  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Charged with loss Sunday

    Lopez (4-4) allowed three runs on three hits and a walk in a third of an inning to take the loss against the Tigers on Sunday.

    Lopez entered Sunday's game to preserve a tie in the top of the ninth inning, but he gave up a home run to lead off the frame before allowing two more runs to come across prior to his removal. The right-hander allowed at least two runs in five of his last six outings of the regular season, and he'll likely pitch out of the bullpen during the playoffs.

  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Earns easy win Tuesday

    Lopez (4-3) allowed one run on two hits while striking out four over six innings as he got the win over the Reds on Tuesday.

    Outside of a fifth-inning home run from Eugenio Suarez, Lopez held the Reds in check after allowing just one other hit and not walking a batter. Tuesday was his first win since Aug. 27 and his first time going more than five innings all year. Despite making nine starts this year, Lopez will likely be used out of the bullpen in the postseason unless it's an emergency situation. The 27-year-old has had a fantastic bounceback season with a 2.98 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 55:12 K:BB over 57.1 innings.

  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Lifted after 3.1 frames

    Lopez allowed two runs on four hits and no walks while striking out four across 3.1 innings during the front end of Thursday's twin bill against Cleveland. He did not factor into the decision.

    It was yet another rough outing for Lopez, who managed to quiet Cleveland's bats over the first two frames. However, he eventually was hurt by the long ball, surrendering a solo homer to Bobby Bradley in third and solo shot to Austin Hedges in the fourth. That would be the end of the 65-pitch day for the right-hander, whose offense went on a power surge to secure the team's victory. Lopez is expected to remain in the rotation for another turn, which tentatively lines up at home next week against the Reds.

  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Wednesday's game called off

    Lopez and the White Sox won't play Wednesday against the Tigers after the game was postponed due to inclement weather, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    Wednesday's contest will be made up Monday. The White Sox haven't yet revealed their updated rotation plans, but it wouldn't be surprising to see Lopez pitch in one of the team's games against Cleveland this weekend.

  • White Sox's Reynaldo Lopez: Falters versus Angels

    Lopez (3-3) gave up seven runs (six earned) on seven hits and a walk over four innings Thursday to take the loss against the Angels. He had seven strikeouts.

    The seven strikeouts matched his season high, but Lopez was otherwise ineffective in what was his worst start since joining the rotation back on Aug. 11. He gave up a pair of two-run homers to the light-hitting Luis Rengifo and Jose Rojas, and he needed 81 pitches to record only 12 outs. Chicago is going with a six-man rotation for the rest of the regular season, so Lopez is scheduled to face the Tigers on the road next week. He'll try to snap a skid of four straight starts without a victory.
