Michael Kopech Optioned

The Chicago White Sox have optioned starting pitcher Michael Kopech to Triple-A Charlotte. Kopech is recovering from Tommy John surgery, but showed great command earlier this spring. With the White Sox hoping to compete this year, Kopech shouldnt be in the minors for too long. Kopech has high upside, but is likely to be on an innings limit this season. His upside makes him worthy a late selection in redraft leagues.

Michael Kopech Shines In Return

Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Michael Kopech(elbow) showed great velocity in his return to the mound on Tuesday. Kopech, 23, is returning from Tommy John surgery, but looked stellar on Tuesday. Throwing 11 pitches, Kopech hit over 100 mph on six of them. Kopech was one of the top pitching prospects before being injured and is expected to begin the year in Triple-A. With the White Sox ready to compete in 2020, it shouldnt be long until Kopech is making an impact for the team. Owners should be excited for his strikeout potential, and his ceiling makes him a strong pick later in drafts, but there is a good chance that his innings will be limited.

Michael Kopech Impressing In Camp

Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Michael Kopech (elbow) threw live batting practice on Friday and continues to impress in camp. The ball is coming out of his hand loose and hot, manager Rick Renteria said. Kopech, the team's No. 2 prospect per MLB Pipeline, missed all of the 2019 season after having Tommy John surgery, but he has nasty stuff when he's healthy. He'll need to work on his command if he's to have success at the major league level, but the 23-year-old (24 in April) has front-of-the-rotation stuff. Expect the White Sox to be careful with his development and keep him in the minors for much of 2020, which makes him mostly a dynasty league or AL-only stash.
