White Sox Injury Update: Scott Carroll exits early

By on 7/12/2014 09:00:00 PM

Chicago White Sox starter Scott Carroll left Saturday's game against the Cleveland Indians after throwing five scoreless innings and only 78 pitches due to a tight hamstring, according to Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun Times.The righty lowered his ERA to 4.46 and notched his fourth win of the season as the Sox defeated the Tribe 6-2. Merlin also reports that Adam Eaton sat out the game, and probably won't play on Sunday as the center fielder is battling a sore right ankle after getting hit by a pitch Friday, as well as a sore left wrist. Eaton is hitting .270/.340/.372 (OPS+ 99).

The "Rienzo" Ventura refers to is right-handed pitcher Andre Rienzo, who was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte after Saturday's 6-2 win over the Indians. As reported earlier, shortstop Alexei Ramirez left Saturday’s game with a stiff back,

Saturday's was the ninth start for Carroll who also appeared six times out of the bullpen in long relief. The 29-year-old was drafted by the Cincinnati Reds in 2007 (3rd round) and after spending five years in their minor-league system he was released in July, 2012. The White Sox signed him to minor league deals in 2012, 2013, and 2014. He finally made his major league debut April 27, 2014. Carroll is pre-arb and under team control through 2019.

Eaton, 25, was drafted by the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2010 (19th round) and made his debut September 4, 2012. In two seasons with the DBacks he slashed .254/.332/.373 and in December 2013 he was part of a 3-team trade between Arizona, the Chicago White Sox and the Los Angeles Angels. In May 2014 Eaton spent time on the DL with a right hamstring strain, and he missed five games in April with a left hamstring strain. Eaton is pre-arb and under team control through 2018.
