  • White Sox's Touki Toussaint: Outrighted to Triple-A

    The White Sox outrighted Toussaint to Triple-A Charlotte on Tuesday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Toussaint is no longer on the 40-man roster but will remain in the organization after clearing waivers. The right-hander will probably open the season in Charlotte's rotation.

  • White Sox's Touki Toussaint: Dropped from 40-man roster

    The White Sox designated Toussaint for assignment Sunday.

    Toussaint's removal from the 40-man roster opens up a spot for outfielder Kevin Pillar, who was re-signed Sunday to a one-year deal. Perhaps more significantly, the roster move also opens up a spot in the rotation for rookie Nick Nastrini, who now looks in position to replace Toussaint as the White Sox's No. 5 starter to begin the season. Toussaint made bats miss at a solid clip upon joining the White Sox last June as a waiver-wire pickup from the Guardians, but command remained a concern for the right-hander, which has been a familiar refrain throughout his career. It was especially true during spring training, as Toussaint had posted a 12.91 ERA, 2.74 WHIP and an ugly 2:11 K:BB across 7.2 frames during Cactus League play.

  • White Sox's Touki Toussaint: Agrees to terms

    Toussaint agreed to a one-year, $1.3 million deal with the White Sox on Thursday, avoiding arbitration, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    The 27-year-old righty would be a reliever for most clubs, but he could compete for a rotation spot this spring with Chicago. Toussaint had a 5.45 ERA and 1.53 WHIP in 74.1 innings as a starter last season, but he has shown he can be more productive in the bullpen, which is where he should eventually end up.

  • White Sox's Touki Toussaint: Allows one run over four frames

    Toussaint did not factor into the decision Thursday, allowing one run on three hits and three walks over four innings in a 3-1 victory over the Diamondbacks. He struck out four.

    Toussaint was able to limit the Diamondbacks despite struggling with his command. Two of his walks came back-to-back with two outs in the fourth inning, and he's issued multiple walks in 10 of his last 11 starts. The outing also marked just the second time this month that Toussaint was unable to make it through five innings.

  • White Sox's Touki Toussaint: Quality start against BoSox

    Toussaint came away with a no-decision Friday in the White Sox's 3-2 loss to the Red Sox, allowing one run on five hits and two walks over 6.1 innings. He struck out two.

    The right-hander left the mound after 92 pitches (56 strikes) in line for his fifth win, but the Chicago bullpen once again squandered a lead -- the White Sox have 29 blown saves in 2023, tied with the Orioles for the fourth-highest total in the league. Toussaint had to settle for his second quality start of the season, both of which have come in September. He'll carry a 5.10 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 81:54 K:BB through 83 innings into his final start of the year, likely to come at home next week against the Diamondbacks.

  • White Sox's Touki Toussaint: Sharp in fourth win

    Toussaint (4-7) picked up the win in Saturday's 7-6 victory over the Twins, allowing one run on three hits and a walk over five innings. He struck out eight.

    A leadoff double by Edouard Julien led to a 1-0 Minnesota lead in the top of the first inning, but Toussaint shook it off and dominated the rest of the way, generating a whopping 32 called or swinging strikes on only 74 pitches. The 27-year-old right-hander has given up three runs or less while lasting at least five innings in four of his last five starts, but a one-inning, eight-run collapse against the Royals in the fifth outing has kept his ratios inflated. Toussaint will carry a 5.40 ERA and 1.47 WHIP into his next start, which is likely to come next weekend in Boston.

  • White Sox's Touki Toussaint: Implodes vs. Royals

    Toussaint did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing eight runs on six hits and two walks over one inning against Kansas City in the second game of a doubleheader. He struck out one.

    It was a brutal outing for Toussaint, who allowed four runs in the opening inning before allowing another four without recording an out in the second. However, he'd miraculously avoid a loss as the White Sox rallied to overcome a 9-0 deficit thanks to an eight-run sixth inning. Toussaint had been pitching well coming into Tuesday's outing, going 2-1 with a 2.76 ERA in his prior three outings. His ERA is now up to 5.65 on the season, with a 1.52 WHIP and 71:51 K:BB across 71.2 innings. Toussaint will look to get back on track in his next start, currently scheduled for early next week in Washington.

  • White Sox's Touki Toussaint: Picks up win Wednesday

    Toussaint (3-7) allowed two runs on two hits and three walks while striking out six over six innings to earn the win Wednesday over the Royals.

    Toussaint earned his first quality start of the year with his effort. He was able to limit the damage to a two-run home run by Nelson Velazquez in the fourth inning. Toussaint had allowed 10 runs over 14.1 innings across his previous three starts. For the season, he has a 4.71 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 70:49 K:BB through 70.2 innings over 16 appearances (12 starts) between the White Sox and Guardians. Toussaint is projected for a rematch with the Royals in Chicago next week.

  • White Sox's Touki Toussaint: Yields three runs in loss

    Toussaint (2-7) allowed three runs on five hits and two walks over 5.1 innings Friday, striking out six and taking a loss against Detroit.

    Toussaint blanked the Tigers over four frames before they tagged him for two runs in the fifth inning. He's been hit with a loss in four of his last six starts, posting an ugly 6.59 ERA during that stretch. For the year, Toussaint is sporting a 4.87 ERA and a 64:46 K:BB through 64.2 innings. He's currently lined up to start in Kansas City next week.

  • White Sox's Touki Toussaint: Blanks Athletics

    Toussaint (2-6) earned the win Saturday, allowing two hits and three walks over five scoreless innings in a 6-2 victory over the Athletics. He struck out four.

    After entering Saturday's contest with an 8.84 ERA and a 25:18 K:BB in August (18.1 innings), Toussaint held the A's scoreless across five frames. However, his control issues persisted, as he handed out three or more walks for a fifth consecutive appearance. Toussaint will have an opportunity to build on Saturday's strong performance, with the White Sox kicking off September with two series against the Tigers sandwiched around one versus the Royals.

  • White Sox's Touki Toussaint: Crushed for seven runs

    Toussaint (1-6) allowed seven runs on seven hits and four walks over four-plus innings Monday, striking out three and taking a loss against Seattle.

    Toussaint was tagged with five runs in the first inning and then gave up back-to-back homers without recording an out in the fifth. He's struggled horribly with his command this month, posting a 25:18 K:BB with an 8.84 ERA through 18.1 frames. His season ERA has spiked to 5.30 across 54.1 innings. Toussaint is currently projected to face the Athletics at home this weekend.

  • White Sox's Touki Toussaint: Struggles with control

    Toussaint allowed three earned runs on three hits and five walks while striking out four across four innings Tuesday against the Cubs. He did not factor into the decision.

    Toussaint was plagued by both home runs -- he surrendered a pair -- and walks en route to his shortest start since July 2. In four starts since becoming a regular in the rotation, he's maintained a 5.12 ERA to go along with a 26:15 K:BB. Toussaint has a 14.3 percent career walk rate across 220.2 frames, so his chances to significantly improve his control in the final several weeks of the current campaign appear slim.

  • White Sox's Touki Toussaint: Fans nine in loss

    Toussaint (1-5) took the loss Tuesday, allowing four runs on six hits and five walks over five innings in a 7-1 loss to the Yankees. He struck out nine.

    Toussaint tallied nine punchouts for a second consecutive start Tuesday but struggled to get through the Yankees' order due to control issues. He has now walked four or more batters in six of 11 outings in 2023 and owns a poor 47:32 K:BB through 46.1 innings. Toussaint is tentatively scheduled for another tasty strikeout matchup next time out against the Cubs, which strike out at the eighth-highest clip in baseball.

  • White Sox's Touki Toussaint: Season-high nine strikeouts

    Toussaint (1-4) took the loss Thursday, allowing four runs on five hits and four walks over 5.1 innings against Texas. He struck out nine.

    Toussaint allowed runs in the second, third and fourth innings, with the latter two coming off home runs from Mitch Garver and Marcus Semien. The right-hander was then relieved by Aaron Bummer after surrendering a leadoff walk in the sixth, but not before recording a season-high nine strikeouts on the afternoon. Toussaint had allowed just two home runs all season coming in, while Thursday's outing marked the third time in his last four starts he's issued four walks.

  • White Sox's Touki Toussaint: Five scoreless in win

    Toussaint (1-3) earned the win Friday, allowing three hits and one walk over five scoreless innings in a 3-0 win over the Guardians. He struck out four.

    The White Sox traded Lucas Giolito to the Angels on Wednesday, creating an opening in the starting rotation. Toussaint got another chance to step in and made his case for a more permanent spot, inducing 14 swinging strikes on 83 pitches en route to his first win of the season. Once a highly regarded prospect, the right-hander has bounced around in recent years, failing to make the most of his big-league opportunities to date. He should be considered a highly volatile fantasy option given his command and control issues.

  • White Sox's Touki Toussaint: Likely to start Friday

    White Sox manager Pedro Grifol said Toussaint will likely start Friday against the Guardians, Vinnie Duber of AllCHGO.com reports.

    That would have been Lucas Giolito's turn in the rotation, but he was traded to the Angels on Wednesday. Toussaint has registered a decent 4.06 ERA in 31 major-league innings this season, but command remains an issue for the 27-year-old former top prospect. He made a 15-pitch appearance in relief in Wednesday's 10-7 loss to the Cubs, but he isn't expected to face any limitations come Friday.
