DETROIT -- Pitching against the team he rooted for, as a boy is no longer a big deal for Zach Putnam. Pitching at home in front of his friends and family, well, that’s not as easy.
The White Sox announced on Thursday they have purchased the contract of pitcher Zach Putnam from Triple-A Charlotte and designated reliever Donnie Veal for assignment.
The White Sox have already surpassed last season’s win total against the Cleveland Indians after only four games.
He got them going early Sunday with Celine Dion in the clubhouse, and hours later Alexei Ramirez sent his White Sox teammates home equally fired up.
The confidence is there for Felipe Paulino.
His execution is not.
