Hector Noesi (back) is available out of the bullpen on Monday.
Noesi left Saturday's start with a lower back contusion. The fact that the White Sox have told him to be ready to pitch in relief suggests that they're keeping Carlos Rodon in the rotation, although they've yet to officially make that announcement. May 11 - 4:29 PM

Hector Noesi left Saturday's start with a lower back contusion.

Noesi exited with two outs in the second inning after getting hit by a Billy Hamilton line drive. Right-hander Scott Carroll entered the game in his place. Noesi allowed three hits and two walks but zero runs before leaving. The White Sox are calling him day-to-day.
May 9 - 5:06 PM

Hector Noesi allowed four runs over 5 2/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Indians.

Noesi was actually better than his line looks, giving up just four hits while striking out five, but two of the hits allowed left the park. A Ryan Raburn two-run single off reliever Carlos Rodon plated the other two runs credited to Noesi. Rodon may eventually be Noesi's competition for a rotation spot but it won't be soon. Noesi will take on the Royals on Sunday.
Apr 21 - 11:36 PM

Hector Noesi struggled mightily with his command in Friday's loss to the Twins, issuing six walks over 4 2/3 innings.

Noesi was able to work around most of the baserunners, surrendering just two runs on four hits while striking out six on the afternoon. A few more outings like this, and the White Sox may wise up and insert Carlos Rodon into the rotation. Noesi remains strictly a low-level AL-only option for Saturday's matchup against the Tigers in Detroit.
Apr 10 - 7:20 PM

Hector Noesi struck out five but allowed three runs over 5 1/3 innings Monday against the Indians.

He yielded five hits -- including a pair of home runs -- and issued two walks. Noesi holds a solid 3.68 ERA this spring, which you'd think would be good enough to cement the fifth spot in the rotation. However, the White Sox for some reason might give Brad Penny the job.
Mar 30 - 8:12 PM

Hector Noesi pitched well in Friday's Cactus League start against the Cubs, allowing two runs on two hits over 4 2/3 innings.

The hard-throwing right-hander punched out five on the afternoon while issuing just one walk. All of the damage against him came on a two-run homer off the bat of David Ross in the second inning. Noesi will open the season as the fifth starter in the White Sox rotation (or the fourth starter while Chris Sale is out), and though he carries ratio risk, his strikeout potential makes him an interesting late round flier in AL-only formats.
Mar 21 - 2:10 PM

Hector Noesi allowed one run while striking out three over three innings against the Giants on Thursday.

He gave up two hits and walked one in the outing. It's the second straight solid Cactus League start for Noesi, as he tossed a couple perfect innings last week. The White Sox will rely on the righty as their No. 5 starter this season.
Mar 12 - 9:32 PM

Hector Noesi pitched a pair of perfect frames in Saturday's Cactus League start against the Mariners.

Noesi induced three ground balls and an infield pop-up en route to facing the minimum. The right-hander, who posted a mediocre 4.39 ERA over 166 innings for the White Sox last season, will pitch out of the back of the rotation again in 2015.
Mar 7 - 6:35 PM

White Sox and RHP Hector Noesi avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.95 million contract.

It's a nice raise for Noesi, who was in his first year of arbitration eligibility. The right-hander was solid for the Pale Hose last season with a 4.39 ERA and 1.33 WHIP across 166 innings. He's slated to open the 2015 campaign as the team's No. 5 starter.
Jan 15 - 7:01 PM

Hector Noesi took his 12th loss in his final start of the season, surrendering three runs in six innings against the Royals on Friday.

The Royals jumped on Noesi early, scoring all three runs in the first inning. From there, Noesi was solid. Overall, he gave up six hits and walked two while striking out five. The right-hander ends the season at 8-12 with a 4.75 ERA, a 1.37 WHIP, and a 123/56 K/BB ratio. Noesi has had very little big league success, now with over 360 innings under his belt. It's difficult to trust him for fantasy purposes until he provides a reason.

Hector Noesi allowed five runs, including two home runs, over 6 2/3 innings in Sunday's loss to the Twins.

Noesi gave up eight hits in total, with homers by Trevor Plouffe and Jordan Schafer accounting for three of the Twins' runs. The loss was Noesi's first since August 20, dropping him to 8-10 on the year. The right-hander, who is pitching for a job next year, will take on the Rays in Tampa on Saturday.

Hector Noesi struggled early but hung tough to record a quality start Tuesday, giving up three runs over seven innings against the Twins.

Noesi allowed three runs in his first two innings of work, a bad omen, but he settled down to toss five scoreless innings from there on. In total, Noesi gave up nine hits without walking a batter. He lowered his ERA to 4.70 with the start. Noesi will look to continue to lower that number Monday against the Athletics.

Hector Noesi surrendered two runs in seven innings Wednesday in defeating the Indians.

We wouldn't necessarily say that Noesi outpitched Corey Kluber -- that was an awfully depleted Cleveland lineup he was facing -- but he did come away with the win after allowing six hits, walking one and striking out five. It was his first career win in four starts against the Indians, and he improved to 8-9 with a 4.75 ERA for the season.

Hector Noesi was hit hard by the Blue Jays on Friday, but still earned the victory despite surrendering five runs on eight hits over his five frames.

Noesi walked a pair and struck out four on the night. The Blue Jays jumped on him early with four runs in the first two innings, but settled in nicely afterwards and hung around long enough to earn his seventh win. He will carry a 4.84 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 92/47 K/BB ratio into Wednesday's start against the Orioles.

Hector Noesi held the Mariners to an unearned run over 7 1/3 innings Saturday in a no-decision.

A Gordon Beckham error led to Seattle's only run. Noesi went 2-14 with a 6.13 ERA in 19 starts and 17 relief appearances for the Mariners from 2012-14, so it really has to sting that he's overmatched them twice this year since joining the White Sox rotation (6 2/3 scoreless in a win on July 6). However, even though he seems to own his former team, he's just 5-7 with a 4.69 ERA otherwise for the White Sox.
