KANSAS CITY --- Fridays 14-inning game is likely to change the White Sox plans for their rotation.
Dylan Axelrod is listed as the teams starter Tuesday night in Boston. But White Sox manager Robin Ventura said those plans could be altered after Axelrod threw 31 pitches in a two-inning relief stint on Friday.
Axelrod earned the victory with two scoreless innings pitched in a 9-8 win over the Kansas City Royals in 14 innings.
The White Sox originally planned to activate Philip Humber off the disabled list on Wednesday, but may move him up one day, Ventura said.
Former White Sox pitcher Daniel Webb died at the age of 28 in an ATV accident on Saturday night, according to Humphreys County Sheriff Chris Davis.
Davis called it a “tragic accident, and we should rally around the family.”
Webb, a Paducah, Ky. native, was with the White Sox from 2013-16 and went 7-5 with a 4.50 ERA.
The White Sox released this statement:
Daniel left many friends within the Chicago White Sox organization, and we are all shocked and stunned by the news of last night's terrible accident. He was a terrific young man with a full life ahead of him. All thoughts and prayers go to his family and friends as they deal with today's tragic news.
