White Sox reassigned RHP Scott Carroll to minor league camp.

Carroll had a very good spring, but he was never expected to make Chicago's rotation. The 30-year-old righty will function as organizational depth in 2015.
Apr 2 - 1:22 PM

Scott Carroll pitched well again Wednesday, limiting the Mariners to two hits and one run in 2 2/3 innings of work.

Carroll has been good all spring, as his outing left his Cactus League ERA at 1.59. The right-hander didn't walk or strike out a batter. Carroll isn't a consideration for a rotation spot, but he might have won himself a bullpen job with the good showing.
Apr 1 - 7:29 PM

Scott Carroll pitched well in Sunday's victory over the Indians, allowing just one unearned run on two hits over three innings.

Carroll walked one and struck out one on the ballgame. He has done a tremendous job in Cactus League competition, posting a 1.04 ERA 6/3 K/BB ratio over 8 2/3 innings. He could crack the White Sox opening day roster as a long reliever, otherwise he'll serve as rotational depth at Triple-A.
Mar 29 - 8:51 PM

White Sox re-signed RHP Scott Carroll to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Carroll was non-tendered by the White Sox last month, but the two sides have reunited. The 30-year-old had a 4.80 ERA, 1.49 WHIP, and 64/45 K/BB ratio in 129 1/3 innings last season and will serve as rotation depth.
Jan 22 - 4:13 PM

White Sox non-tendered RHP Scott Carroll.

Carroll was designated for assignment by the White Sox last week and is now officially a free agent. The 30-year-old right-hander had a 4.80 ERA, 1.49 WHIP, and 64/45 K/BB ratio in 129 1/3 innings this past season.

White Sox designated RHP Scott Carroll for assignment.

The move clears a spot for the newly-signed Adam LaRoche on the 40-man roster. Carroll, 29, had a 4.80 ERA and 64/45 K/BB ratio in 129 1/3 innings across 19 starts and seven relief appearances this past season. There's not much upside here, but he could draw some interest from other teams.

Scott Carroll pitched well in a no-decision on Tuesday, allowing two runs (one earned) in six innings against the Tigers.

Carroll was in line for the loss until David Price forked over three runs in the ninth inning. The right-hander yielded five hits and a pair of walks, striking out four. It's a rare bright spot in what has otherwise been an ugly season, as Carroll owns a 4.84 ERA with a 1.50 WHIP and a 59/43 K/BB ratio. He'll finish out his season on Sunday at home against the Royals.

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.

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.

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.
Tue, Sep 2, 2014 02:52:00 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.
Sat, Aug 30, 2014 10:30:00 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.

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.

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.
