BALTIMORE -- The White Sox won't officially announce plans for the post-Kansas City series five-man rotation until after Zach Stewart faces the Royals on Friday at U.S. Cellular Field. The rookie has a second start to state his case, after beating the Twins last Saturday in his White Sox debut. But he's not putting any extra pressure on himself to succeed.
"I'm obviously wanting to go out there and do my best and not just for the spot or anything," Stewart said. "They have an idea of where they want to go with everything. I'm just going out there and trying to contribute every time, whatever situation they put me out there. Just go out and contribute and try to get a 'W.'"
Stewart gave up just one run over 6 1/3 innings against the Twins, relying on his sinker and slider, while mixing in a few changeups.
"For the most part, I just kept the ball down," Stewart said. "I threw my sinker and got a lot of ground balls."
