Prior to today’s doubleheader in Kansas City, the White Sox added right-handed pitcher Davis Martin from Triple-A Charlotte. He will serve as the 27th man on the roster and is expected to start Game 2.
Martin has made seven appearances (three starts) in six stints with the White Sox this season, going 1-3 with a 4.75 ERA (16 ER/30.1 IP) and 23 strikeouts. He has worked at least 5.0 IP in five appearances, including a career-high 6.0 in his last start on July 12 (Game 1) at Cleveland. In that game, he allowed four earned runs on eight hits with a pair of walks and three strikeouts.
It’s also worth mentioning that Martin made his debut against the Royals in Kansas City earlier this year on May 17th. In that outing, he threw five innings, giving up just one earned run on five hits, striking out seven, and walking just one. He will look to reach back and find that same success later tonight.
Between Double-A Birmingham and Triple-A Charlotte, Martin is 5-4 with a 4.20 ERA (30 ER/64.1 IP) and 84 strikeouts in 14 starts this season.
