Scott Carroll (fingernail) is expected to be OK to make his next scheduled start on Tuesday.
Carroll dealt with a cracked fingernail in his last outing, but White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Tuesday that the righty "looks OK." If it turns out Carroll can't go, it's possible the club will move up Chris Sale to start, which would give him an extra outing as he pursues the AL Cy Young award. Sep 17 - 9:32 AM

Scott Carroll took a tough-luck loss Sunday, going seven frames and allowing two runs versus the Indians.

Carroll allowed seven hits (six singles) while walking one and striking out one, but he was bested by Carlos Carrasco. The nice effort was Carroll's first quality start since late July. He'll try to keep it going next weekend at home against the Twins.
Sep 7 - 4:07 PM

White Sox recalled RHP Scott Carroll from Triple-A Charlotte.

Caroll was optioned to Triple-A after he was hit third in a loss to the Tigers on Friday, but the White Sox brought him back now that rosters have expanded. The 29-year-old owns a 5.07 ERA over 16 starts and six relief appearances in the majors this year and can be ignored in fantasy leagues.
Sep 2 - 2:52 PM

White Sox optioned RHP Scott Carroll to Triple-A Charlotte.

Carroll was knocked around in Friday's loss to the Tigers, but this move has more to do with him having minor league options remaining than anything else. He will rejoin the rotation once rosters expand next week.
Aug 30 - 10:30 AM

Scott Carroll was hit hard in a losing effort against the Tigers on Friday, surrendering seven runs (three earned) on 10 hits over his five frames.

Carroll struck out two on the evening without walking a batter. The Tigers jumped on him early in this one, scratching out a pair of runs in the third inning, and tacking on five more in the third with the help of a defensive miscue. With a 5.07 ERA, 1.55 WHIP and 52/38 K/BB ratio, he should be avoided in all fantasy formats for Friday’s matchup against the Indians in Cleveland.
Aug 29 - 11:41 PM

Scott Carroll was sacked with his eighth loss of the season after allowing five runs (four earned) in six innings as the White Sox fell to the Yankees on Saturday.

Carroll's tough season continues. Along with three walks, the right-hander allowed seven hits, four of which went for extra bases, and did not record a strikeout. He now carries an ugly 5.05 ERA with a 1.53 WHIP and a 50/38 K/BB ratio. Carroll will look for improvement in his next start at home against the Tigers on Friday.
Aug 23 - 4:22 PM

Scott Carroll struggled against the Blue Jays, allowing five runs in 5 2/3 innings, but escaped with the win as the White Sox earned a 7-5 victory on Sunday.

Carroll allowed a run in the top of the first, but the White Sox fought back with a six-run frame in the bottom half in support of their starter. Carroll allowed eight hits -- including a two-run home run to Edwin Encarnacion -- while walking three and striking out two. It's been a tough year for Carroll, as he has a 4.99 ERA, a 1.52 WHIP, and a 50/35 K/BB ratio. He'll have to take on the Yankees in the Bronx on Saturday next.
Aug 17 - 5:43 PM

Scott Carroll will have his next start skipped due to a blister on his throwing hand.

Jose Quintana will start in his place on Wednesday. The hope is that he'll just miss one start and be able to avoid a trip to the disabled list.
Aug 10 - 7:24 PM

Scott Carroll got torched by the Mariners for seven hits and seven runs over five innings in an ugly 13-3 loss on Thursday.

Chicago is running out of reasons to give Carroll starts. Granted, his high-wire act doesn't always end in disaster. For instance, the 29-year-old had restricted his last three road opponents to one run across 17 2/3 innings. But we often must watch him tumble from altitude: Carroll hasn't won since July 12. Owning an ugly 4.81 ERA and 1.49 WHIP, Carroll carries a bat into his next outing looking to take out some frustration against the Giants in San Francisco next week.
Aug 8 - 1:22 AM

Scott Carroll allowed four runs on seven hits in a no-decision against the Twins on Saturday.

Carroll whiffed four and walked two. As far as emergency options go, Carroll has given the White Sox a decent effort with a 4.36 ERA over 86-plus innings. Unfortunately, he hasn't won since July 12, owns a hideous 1.47 WHIP and sports a 45/29 K/BB ratio that makes men spit, women weep, and children flee.
Aug 3 - 12:11 AM

Scott Carroll limited the Twins to four hits and one run over six innings but settled for a no-decision on Sunday.

Carroll had a nice bounce back from allowing five runs in his last start. Unfortunately for the 29-year-old, his bullpen couldn't hold the lead. Carroll struck out four while walking one. Carroll owns a 4.29 ERA and 1.48 WHIP through 79 2/3 innings, and he'll get a shot at the Twins again when they square off on Saturday.
Jul 27 - 4:59 PM

Scott Carroll was roughed up for 11 hits and five runs over five innings in a loss to the Royals on Tuesday.

The right-hander, who had allowed just three hits and zero runs over his past two starts combined, gave up five extra-base hits, including a home run, in the loss. He also walked two and struck out three. Carroll owns a 4.52 ERA and 1.53 WHIP through 73 2/3 innings, and he's a non-factor for fantasy purposes going forward.
Jul 23 - 12:06 AM

Scott Carroll said after leaving Saturday's start with a stiff back that he'll be "ready to go after the All-Star break."

Carroll had to exit after five shutout frames, but it sounds like it was just a precaution. The right-hander has pitched well since re-entering the rotation, allowing just three hits over 11 2/3 shutout frames.
Jul 13 - 9:45 AM

Scott Carroll left his start Saturday against the Indians with lower back stiffness.

Carroll was pulled after pitching five innings, giving up just two hits (no runs) and recording three strikeouts. Zach Putnam replaced him on the mound. Carroll should be fine for his first start after the All-Star break.
Jul 12 - 4:53 PM

Scott Carroll allowed just one hit over 6 2/3 innings Monday in the White Sox's shutout of the Red Sox.

Javy Guerra and Zach Putnam finished up the two-hitter, which probably rates as a new low for the Red Sox this season. After all, Carroll entered the night with a 5.05 ERA and a 1.65 WHIP this season. He had allowed 73 hits in 57 innings, including 17 over 11 innings in back-to-back losses to the Blue Jays and Angels his last two times out. Carroll isn't recommended in AL-only leagues.
