The Chicago White Sox have acquired pitcher Luis Patino from the Tampa Bay Rays in exchange for cash considerations.
Patino, 23, was once one of the highest-ranked pitching prospects in the game but has struggled to live up to the hype. The right-hander has appeared in just 38 big-league games, working to a 5.23 ERA and 9.9% K-BB% in that time. He's spent the bulk of the 2023 season at Triple-A where he has been roughed up for a 6.75 ERA across 27 appearances, only six of which were starts.
The Tampa Bay Rays have recalled pitcher Luis Patino from Triple-A.
Patino takes the roster spot of Calvin Faucher who was placed on the injured list due to elbow inflammation. The former top prospect has been rocked for a 7.64 ERA across six starts and 10 relief appearances spanning 35 1/3 innings at Triple-A this season.
Luis Patino has been sent down to Triple-A following Sunday's start against the Yankees.
Patino lasted just 1.1 innings, giving up 9 ER and walking 4, so this isn't too surprising. He may still see time in the big leagues again this season, but shouldn't be trusted as a fantasy option for the immediate future. A corresponding call-up has not been officially announced.
Luis Patino allowed nine runs, five hits, and four walks over 1 1/3 innings during a shaky outing against the Yankees on Sunday. He surrendered three homers, did not strike anyone out, and was charged with the loss as Tampa Bay ultimately fell to New York by a score of 10-4.
Patino has surrendered 12 runs over his last two games. He owns a woeful 8.10 ERA, 1.95 WHIP, and .313 OBA through six outings this season.
Luis Patino allowed three runs, five hits, and three walks over five innings of work against the Red Sox on Monday. He also struck out four batters but did not factor into the final decision. Tampa Bay ultimately defeated Boston by a score of 4-3 in the series opener.
Patino is 1-1 with a 4.34 ERA, 1.61 WHIP, and .280 OBA through five starts in the majors this season. He has also posted 5.30 K/9 and 4.34 BB/9. The right-hander has shuttled between Triple-A and MLB this year, and he'll likely be optioned to Durham again on Tuesday.
