White Sox optioned RHP Andre Rienzo to Triple-A Charlotte.

Rienzo is 4-5 with a rough 5.87 ERA and a 1.61 WHIP in 24 appearances this year for the White Sox. He should have another chance later on in the season.

Andre Rienzo has been moved to the White Sox bullpen.

Rienzo surrendered four earned runs in 4 1/3 innings on Saturday against the Twins, watching his ERA rise to 5.86. He will pitch in long relief now for Chicago, with Scott Carroll moving into the vacant rotation spot.

White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Monday that Andre Rienzo is still a member of the team's rotation "as of right now."

"We're still going over that. As of right now he is," Ventura said. "We'll continue to sit there and talk about it." Rienzo was tagged for four runs over 4 1/3 innings Saturday in a loss to the Twins and holds a 10.38 ERA over his last four starts. If the White Sox do make a move, Ventura said it would be Scott Carroll taking Rienzo's spot in the rotation.

Andre Rienzo was tagged for four runs over 4 1/3 innings Saturday in a loss to the Twins.

Rienzo held the Twins to one run over the first four innings before unraveling in his final inning of work. All told, he gave up seven hits and two walks while striking out three batters. After beginning the year 4-0, the 25-year-old has lost five straight starts. Even worse, he has allowed 17 runs in 14 innings over his last three starts. Needless to say, he's not a fantasy option.

Andre Rienzo surrendered six runs over six innings in Sunday's loss to the Royals.

In his first start since May 6, Rienzo showed why the White Sox were so willing to skip his last turn in the rotation. The right-hander served up two homers among his six hits allowed, and he also walked four. He's now 4-4 with a 5.67 ERA in 54 innings after starting the season 4-0.

Andre Rienzo's next turn in the rotation will be skipped following Tuesday's rainout.

Rienzo's next turn had been slated for Wednesday, but the White Sox have decided to keep everyone else on schedule and push the righty back to Sunday. He holds a 5.25 ERA over 48 innings for the Pale Hose this season.

White Sox manager Robin Ventura said Andre Rienzo will start Wednesday against the Tigers.

There was some thought Rienzo's job could be in jeopardy after allowing seven runs over 3 2/3 innings on Friday, the latest in a string of unimpressive starts. For now, though, he'll stay as a starter. Still, Rienzo is a risky proposition even in AL-only leagues.

Andre Rienzo was tagged for seven runs in 3 2/3 innings by the Angels on Friday.

After going 4-0 with a 4.11 ERA in his first six starts for the White Sox, Rienzo is 0-3 with a 9.00 ERA in the last three. It's probably time to give Charlie Leesman a look in his spot.

Andre Rienzo was chased after giving up three runs over just 3 1/3 innings Saturday against the Padres.

Rienzo needed 80 pitches to get just 10 outs. He gave up seven hits and two walks before being pulled in the fourth inning. The 25-year-old has an underwhelming 4.26 ERA and 36/20 K/BB ratio over 44 1/3 innings this season and isn't an option outside of AL-only fantasy leagues.

Andre Rienzo allowed five runs -- four earned -- on seven hits in a loss to the Yankees on Sunday.

Rienzo struck out seven while walking two in suffering his first loss of the season. It snapped a string of five straight starts in which he allowed three earned runs or fewer, but he owns a 4.39 ERA and 1.32 WHIP for the season and isn't more than an AL-only option for fantasy purposes. He'll look to get back in the win column Saturday against the Padres.
Sun, May 25, 2014 06:47:00 PM

Andre Rienzo struck out eight and allowed two runs over six innings in Tuesday's win over the Royals.

Don't look now, but Rienzo is 4-0 with a 4.00 ERA after Tuesday's win. He gave up five hits and walked two but, more importantly, he didn't allow a home run after serving up six in his first five starts. We're still not entirely sold on Rienzo as a mixed league asset, but he's certainly good enough to be owned in all AL-only leagues. He'll look to run his record higher against the Yankees on Sunday.
