Player Outlook
Jesse Scholtens maid the majors for the first time in 2023, appearing in 26 games and making 11 starts with a 5.29 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 58 strikeouts in 85 innings pitched. The right-hander ended the season with a calf injury, but will be ready for Spring Training. Old for a rookie at 29, Sholtens will now need to fend off rotation candidate additions in Jared Shuster and Michael Soroka or may be forced back into the bullpen or even a return to Triple-A. If he does crack the rotation the upside here seems hard to find as Scholtens gave up 100 hits and walked 30 batters in 2023 without coming close to a strikeout-per-inning.

  • White Sox's Jesse Scholtens: Out with torn UCL

    Scholtens was placed on the 60-day injured list Tuesday with a torn UCL in his right elbow. Scholtens finished last season on the injured list with a calf strain and will begin the 2024 campaign in the same fashion with a much more serious injury. The 29-year-old is scheduled to undergo surgery Friday, per LaMond Pope of the Chicago Tribune, and is poised to miss the entirety of the 2024 season.

  • White Sox's Jesse Scholtens: Placed on injured list

    The White Sox placed Scholtens on the 15-day injured list Sunday with a left calf strain, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. With just eight days left in the regular season, Scholtens' trip to the IL will force him to miss the rest of the year. He will finish his rookie campaign with a 5.29 ERA and 1.53 WHIP over 85 innings alongside a 58:30 K:BB. Declan Cronin was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte in a corresponding move.

  • White Sox's Jesse Scholtens: Trounced by Twins

    Scholtens (1-9) took the loss Friday as the White Sox were routed 10-2 by the Twins, coughing up six runs (five earned) on seven hits and three walks over four innings. He struck out five. A second-inning grand slam by Royce Lewis set the tone for Scholtens' outing, and the right-hander needed 94 pitches (54 strikes) to record only 12 outs. He remains winless since moving into the rotation on a full-time basis at the beginning of August, stumbling to a 6.00 ERA, 1.60 WHIP and 34:16 K:BB through 45 innings, but the White Sox don't have any better starting options. Scholtens' next trip to the mound is likely to come next week on the road against the Nationals.

  • White Sox's Jesse Scholtens: Takes eighth loss

    Scholtens (1-8) took the loss Sunday, allowing three runs on eight hits and two walks over five innings in a 3-2 loss against the Tigers. He struck out four. Detroit's three-run third inning proved to be enough to stick Scholtens with the loss, as he remains without a win since June 25. The 29-year-old Scholtens delivered three consecutive quality starts after joining the White Sox rotation in early August, though he's now allowed 19 runs across 22.2 innings over his subsequent five starts. Overall, his ERA is up to 4.44 with a 1.42 WHIP and 52:25 K:BB across 79 innings this season. Scholtens is currently lined up for a home matchup with the Twins in his next outing.

  • White Sox's Jesse Scholtens: Shelled in seventh loss

    Scholtens (1-7) took the loss Monday against the Royals, allowing five runs on nine hits and one walk over 3.2 innings . He struck out one. Monday marked the third time in Scholtens' last four outings that he has allowed five earned runs. The 29-year-old rookie has struggled in his seven starts since entering the White Sox rotation post-trade deadline. He's scuffled to the tune of a 5.50 ERA and 6.3 K/9 over 36 innings since Aug. 1.

  • White Sox's Jesse Scholtens: Sharp in no-decision

    Scholtens came away with a no-decision Tuesday in the White Sox's 9-3 loss to the Orioles, allowing one run on six hits over 5.1 innings. He struck out one without walking a batter. The right-hander wasn't dominant, managing only five swinging strikes among his 91 pitches, but he generated plenty of weak contact and didn't give up an extra-base hit before exiting the game with the score tied 1-1. It was a solid bounce-back effort for Scholtens after he'd been tagged for 10 runs over his prior two starts, but since joining the rotation for good at the beginning of August he's posted a 4.73 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 24:10 K:BB through 32.1 innings. He'll likely next take the mound early next week in Kansas City.

  • White Sox's Jesse Scholtens: Cooled at Coors Field

    Scholtens (1-6) took the loss against Colorado on Saturday, allowing five runs on five hits and five walks while striking out two batters over three innings. Scholtens came into the contest with three straight quality starts since entering the rotation full-time July 29, but he couldn't extend that streak in the hitter-friendly confines of Coors Field. Though the stadium has a reputation as a launchpad for homers, that wasn't the right-hander's problem Saturday. In fact, Scholtens didn't allow any extra-base hits, but he threw only 43 of 86 pitches for a strike and walked a season-high five batters, including four in a three-run first inning. He'll probably maintain his spot in the rotation for a White Sox squad that is well out of postseason contention, but this was a definite dud following the promising start to his big-league career as a starter.

  • White Sox's Jesse Scholtens: Remains in rotation

    Scholtens will start Sunday's game against the Guardians. Scholtens moved from the bullpen into a starting role Tuesday after the White Sox dealt away Lance Lynn and Lucas Giolito and held his own in a matchup with a tough Texas lineup, covering six innings and striking out six while allowing one earned run on three hits and one walk. The right-hander will pick up his fourth start of the season Sunday and looks poised for an extended stay in the rotation.

  • White Sox's Jesse Scholtens: Working out of bullpen

    Scholtens has made his last three appearances as a reliever, striking out one over 3.2 innings while allowing one unearned run on four hits and two walks. Scholtens made his final appearance before the All-Star break as a starter, but after surrendering three runs on 11 hits in four innings against the Blue Jays in that July 6 outing, he's since moved back to the bullpen. Touki Toussaint has taken over as the White Sox's No. 5 starter and thus far performed well enough to hold down that role until Chicago gets Mike Clevinger (biceps) back from the 15-day injured list.

  • White Sox's Jesse Scholtens: Getting ball in second game

    Scholtens will start for the White Sox in the second game of Thursday's doubleheader against the White Sox, LaMond Pope of the Chicago Tribune reports. All but one of Scholtens' 10 appearances for the White Sox this season have come in relief, but he's provided plenty of bulk in going four innings each of his last two times out. Chicago does still figure to use plenty of arms in the nightcap, so they'll be hoping for length out of Lance Lynn in the afternoon tilt.

  • White Sox's Jesse Scholtens: Secures first save

    Scholtens picked up the save in Saturday's 4-3 victory over the Mariners, striking out one over a perfect inning. Scholtens was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte on Friday and tossed a scoreless inning in his first appearance since May 31. He was called upon again Saturday, but this time in an extra-innings save opportunity, as Joe Kelly and Kendall Graveman were likely unavailable after recently pitching back-to-back days. Scholtens didn't disappoint and secured his first career save with a perfect inning, but he isn't expected to be used in high-leverage situations on a regular basis.

  • White Sox's Jesse Scholtens: Summoned to big leagues

    Scholtens was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte on Friday, Vinnie Duber of reports. The righty is taking the spot of Mike Clevinger (biceps) and looks like a candidate to take his place in the rotation as well, if he's not needed in relief before then. Scholtens holds a 3.24 ERA and 9:8 K:BB over 16.2 innings covering one start and four relief appearances with the big club this season.

  • White Sox's Jesse Scholtens: Optioned to Triple-A

    Scholtens was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte on Friday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports. Scholtens will return to Charlotte after being called up May 22, appearing in three games, including one start, over his second stint with the White Sox this season. The right-hander performed adequately enough, allowing five runs on eight hits and six walks while striking out five batters over 13.2 innings in those outings. Scholtens will likely continue to bounce between the majors and minors as a depth option over the summer.

  • White Sox's Jesse Scholtens: Getting start Saturday

    Scholtens will start Saturday's game against the Tigers in Detroit, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. After being called up from Triple-A Charlotte on Monday, Scholtens worked as a bulk reliever against the Guardians later that day, allowing one run over five innings. He'll now get a look in a more traditional starting role, filling Mike Clevinger's (wrist) spot in the rotation. A strong effort against Detroit on Saturday should bode well for Scholtens' chances of making multiple starts while Clevinger is on the shelf.

  • White Sox's Jesse Scholtens: Operates as bulk reliever

    Scholtens (0-2) took the loss Monday against the Guardians, allowing one run on two hits and two walks while striking out one over five innings. Scholtens replaced Mike Clevinger (wrist) on the major-league roster Monday and operated as the bulk reliever behind Jimmy Lambert, who started but pitched just one inning. It was Scholtens first MLB appearance since April 11 and just his third career big-league outing. The right-hander has surrendered just two earned runs on six hits over his first eight innings while posting a 5:4 K:BB. Clevinger will miss at least 15 days, so Scholtens should get a few more opportunities to impress over the next two weeks.

    Scholtens was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte on Thursday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports. Scholtens was added to the big-league roster Friday, and he allowed one earned run across three frames in two appearances. He's likely to get another chance in the majors later in 2023.
