Reed approaching club record for rookie hurler
CHICAGO -- Addison Reed's 10 straight scoreless appearances, covering 8 1/3 innings, ranks as the third-longest run by a White Sox rookie reliever at a campaign's outset since 1921, according to STATS LLC. Sergio Santos holds the mark at 12 in 2010, followed by Matt Karchner with 11 in 1995.

That record hasn't crossed Reed's mind -- literally, not for a second.

"The only time I've ever thought of it is right now," said a smiling Reed.

When asked if he even knew about the record, Reed quickly admitted that he had no idea.

"It's not going to change anything. Every time I go out, I try to not give up any runs," said Reed, who has fanned 11 and walked three. "If it happens to be a record, then it happens to be a record.

"I'm just going out there trying to throw up zeroes and help the team win. So, I'm not thinking anything of it."

Reed has proven to be a late-inning force, while rookie Nate Jones has earned a late-inning look with Jesse Crain on the disabled list because of a strained left oblique. Closer Hector Santiago and middle reliever Zach Stewart complete this young nucleus of White Sox relievers learning on the fly with a 2.93 bullpen ERA.

"We are staying hard on [Jones], Hector, Reed and Stewart," White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper said. "We are making sure that everything they are doing is trying to build a solid foundation we are going to need to help us now as well as in the future."
