Bruney returns with better velocity
CHICAGO -- Brian Bruney officially began his second stint with the White Sox when his contract was purchased from Triple-A Charlotte on Friday to temporarily take the roster spot of Philip Humber. Bruney, 30, returns with a 1.85 ERA and 11 saves over 23 games for the Knights, including three starts to stretch him out.

He also has a few more ticks of velocity on his fastball, which was down a bit in Spring Training.

"I just got back to the basics with my natural arm slot," Bruney said. "Working with [Knights pitching coach] Richard Dotson down there really helped. We just tweaked a few things and got back to doing what I used to do, and I'm just feeling a whole lot more comfortable throwing the ball.

"I'm excited to come in and help the team. They're playing great right now, and I just want to go in and fit in quietly and just do the job."
