Ventura reacts to prospect Rienzo's no-hitter

Ventura reacts to prospect Rienzo's no-hitter


CHICAGO -- White Sox prospect Andre Rienzo pitched a no-hitter for Triple-A Charlotte against Indianapolis on Thursday. White Sox manager Robin Ventura was asked prior to Friday's game against Kansas City whether he recalled seeing the right-hander during Spring Training.

"Yeah, I saw him," Ventura said. "He was good; he didn't have that good of a game when I saw him, but he had just come back, I think he was leaving to go to Japan at that time to go pitch for Brazil [in the World Baseball Classic], so I don't think I saw him at his best.

"You see that sharp curveball and some command, and you know, pretty high energy guy. It's fun to see him go out there and enjoy it and you're happy for him having a no-hitter. But again, he's probably got to a point where he's improved from where he was in Spring Training."
