As posited on Friday, more pitching reinforcements arrived today to bolster a potentially taxed bullpen. 26 year old RHP pitcher Dylan Axelrod is a former Padres farmhand who came to the White Sox in 2009 via the Windy City Thunderbolts of the independent Frontier League. In 150.2 IP between Birmingham and Charlotte this season, he gave up 126 hits, walked 35 and struck out 132.
He relies primarily on his fastball and slider. His fastball sits between 88-91 MPH. His slider is a good pitch. His third pitch, a changeup, is not particularly impressive. He throws strikes.
To free space on the 40 man roster, Tony Pena (who?) was moved to the 60 day DL.
