|2011 - Anthony Swarzak||3-4||21||5||0||0||0||0||69.2||68||30||28||6||20||34||3.62||1.26|
Anthony Swarzak makes his first start since mid July. He's been fairly good this year, but he's been pitching well below his xFIP (4.82) due to a very low BABIP allowed (.265) and a low home run rate (5.6% HR/FB). I expect at some point Swarzak's peripherals will catch up to him. The way things are going, I wouldn't be surprised if tonight's the night.
#48 / Pitcher / Chicago White Sox

|2011 - Zach Stewart||1-2||5||3||0||0||0||0||23.0||26||12||12||3||7||16||4.70||1.43|
Zach Stewart was part of the White Sox' return for trading Edwin Jackson at the trade deadline. Since joining the White Sox, Stewart has been up and down with a solid start against the Twins earlier this month, 6.1 innings, one run allowed.
