White Sox's Aaron Bummer: Throwing but not running

Bummer (knee) has thrown a bullpen session but has yet to resume sprinting, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports. Bummer has been on the injured list with a strained right knee since Monday. The fact that he's been able to throw is undoubtedly a good sign, but whether or not he'll be back when first eligible remains to be seen.

White Sox's Aaron Bummer: Anticipates short stay

Bummer (knee) believes he can return from the injured list in the minimum 15 days, James Fegan of The Athletic reports. Bummer will be eligible to return May 22 and seemingly has a chance to do so, but it's unclear whether his optimism is shared by the White Sox organization. He wasn't at his best prior to the injury, as he struggled to a 4.91 ERA and 1.73 WHIP in 11 innings.

White Sox's Aaron Bummer: Hits injured list as expected

Bummer (knee) was placed on the 15-day injured list as expected Monday. Bummer hadn't pitched since Friday, so the transaction can be backdated two days, leaving him eligible to return May 22. It's not entirely clear whether or not he'll be able to do so, especially with the White Sox now referring to his injury as a strain rather than merely soreness. Joe Kelly (biceps) returned from the injured list to take his place in the bullpen.

White Sox's Aaron Bummer: Records loss in extra innings

Bummer (0-1) recorded the loss, allowing a hit, three runs and two walks with two strikeouts over 1.2 innings in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Royals. Although Liam Hendricks (back) is the team's incumbent closer, Bummer is next in line, although his four holds indicate his utility as a set-up man. If Hendricks' back injury lingers, Bummer should continue to show up in save situations, although his overall fantasy value in Chicago's bullpen is somewhat limited.

No-Fly Zone, with Aaron Bummer

One hot topic among White Sox fans to start the season has been the rollercoaster Aaron Bummer has taken us on in his first three appearances of 2022. Bummer’s results in the past year or so, while solid, have been underwhelming to many. In this piece, I’m hoping to outline what makes Bummer so special and where his issues (although minor) may be coming from. I also have a plan for how to get him back to the elite lockdown level he is capable of.

White Sox's Aaron Bummer: Secures save Saturday

Bummer tossed a scoreless ninth inning, allowing two hits and striking out three on the way to a save in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Tigers. With Liam Hendriks unavailable after blowing the save in Thursday's loss to the Tigers, the left-hander was called upon to get the save Saturday. Bummer allowed back-to-back singles to Miguel Cabrera and Jonathan Schoop to open the bottom of the ninth inning, but he was able to dance out of trouble and strike out the next three batters he faced to end the game and pick up the save. The 28-year-old has allowed two runs on four hits and a walk while striking out five batters in 1.2 innings so far in 2022.

Aaron Bummer is so important to the Chicago White Sox

The Chicago White Sox enjoyed having an outstanding pitching staff in 2021. The starting pitching rotation did their job and then some as they were one of the best in the American League. The bullpen had a few strange moments but they were certainly good as well. One reason that...

What to expect from Aaron Bummer in 2022

Rick Hahn will be among the first to tell you that there's an awful lot of volatility in relief pitching from one year to the next. Hahn, though, is the same guy who gave a long-term contract to Aaron Bummer before the 2020 season, the Chicago White Sox believing they had a reliever on their hands who would be pretty darn consistent from one year to the next.

Luck, defense, and positioning failed Aaron Bummer in 2021

As part of my 2021 review of White Sox pitchers, I mentioned that Aaron Bummer‘s 2021 season compared unfavorably to his 2019 campaign in part because of a major decrease in double-play ground balls and an increase in unfortunate singles yielded by dribblers. In addition, I suggested the White Sox infield positioning should be reviewed to determine whether it contributed to Bummer’s rough luck.

Chicago White Sox: 2021 grade for Aaron Bummer

The Chicago White Sox are a team with a great bullpen. There were a few players who didn’t live up to their potential this year but it was mostly good all around. One of those players who is great is Aaron Bummer. He is definitely a late-inning high leverage pitcher that can come in and get any type of outs. When he is on his game, he is outstanding.
