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.

Hector Noesi was credited with his first career complete game as the White Sox beat the Rangers 5-3 in a rain-shortened game Monday.

Play was halted after the top of the seventh. Noesi would have been done regardless after throwing 104 pitches, but since play never resumed, it went as his first complete game in 39 major league starts. He allowed three runs -- one earned -- and four hits through seven, making it one of his better efforts of the year. He's 6-8 with a 4.97 ERA.

Hector Noesi fell to 5-8 after yielding six runs over six innings in a loss to the Tigers on Wednesday.

All six runs came in an ugly first inning in which Noesi allowed six hits (five singles and a three-run home run) and walked two batters. From the second through the sixth, Noesi put up goose eggs. Overall, the right-hander allowed 10 hits, walked three, and struck out three. It hasn't been a great season for Noesi, as he has a 5.21 ERA, a 1.48 WHIP, and a 78/41 K/BB ratio. He'll try to bounce back against the Rangers at home on Monday.

Hector Noesi dominated the Twins on Thursday, allowing two runs in 7 2/3 innings in a win.

Noesi blanked the Twins through seven frames, but relented his first two runs when Danny Santana homered to right field with two outs in the eighth. On the night, Noesi limited the Twins to three hits while walking one and striking out three. At least for now, Noesi's ERA is back under 5.00 at 4.99 along with a 1.44 WHIP and 75/38 K/BB ratio. He'll have to face the Tigers in Detroit the next time he takes the mound.

Hector Noesi was hit hard for six runs in 4 2/3 innings in Friday's loss to the Indians.

Coming off his strongest outing with the White Sox, Noesi came crashing back down to Earth in this one. He gave up nine hits (including two home runs) and four walks while striking out four batters. The 27-year-old owns an ugly 5.26 ERA over 87 1/3 innings of work this season and isn't a fantasy option.

Hector Noesi shut out the Mariners over 6 2/3 innings as the White Sox squeaked out a 1-0 win on Sunday.

Noesi hasn't been particularly good this year -- he had a 5.33 ERA heading into Sunday's start -- but he was able to silence the Mariners' bats in this one. Noesi gave up just five hits, all singles, and walked two. The right-hander also struck out five. Despite the good outing, Noesi isn't a fantasy option when he takes on the Indians in Cleveland on Friday.

Hector Noesi channeled his inner Nuke LaLoosh Tuesday, walking and striking out seven while allowing five runs over five frames in a loss to the Angels.

The walks and strikeouts totals were both season highs for Noesi, who needed 111 pitches to cover five innings. Noesi had mostly been pretty decent of late, but tonight's showing was a reminder that he can't be trusted in even the deepest of fantasy leagues. He'll try to get back on track in Boston next week, which doesn't seem likely.

Hector Noesi limited the Orioles to two runs over seven innings but took the no-decision in Wednesday's 12-inning loss to the Orioles.

Noesi blanked the Orioles over seven frames and took the hill to start the eighth, but allowed back-to-back singles before manager Robin Ventura took him out of the ballgame. Nelson Cruz would later tie the game at 4-4 on a grand slam, with two of the runs being charged to Noesi. Overall, the right-hander allowed nine hits, issued no walks, and struck out two. Noesi has a 4.18 ERA with a 48/21 K/BB ratio since joining the White Sox in late April. He'll face the Angels at home in his next outing.
Thu, Jun 26, 2014 12:31:00 AM

Hector Noesi gave up four earned runs in seven innings in a no-decision against the Twins on Friday.

The White Sox staked Noesi to an early 2-0 lead, but the Twins were able to erase it with three runs in the third and one more in the fourth. Noesi was untouched outside of those two innings. His final line was four earned runs in seven innings to go with two walks and four strikeouts. He would have picked up the loss, but Glen Perkins blew the save for the Twins. This has been one of Noesi's better starts on the year, but his ERA still sits at 5.34. He should be off the radar in most fantasy leagues.
