White Sox's Kendall Graveman: Coughs up three runs

Graveman allowed three earned runs on four hits while striking out one across one inning Monday against the Royals. Graveman entered the game with a three-run lead in the eighth inning, though he coughed up the advantage by allowing three singles and a double. He entered the contest having allowed only one earned run across his last 10 frames, and he posted four holds and two saves in that span. Despite his poor outing, Graveman should continue to occupy the top setup role in the White Sox bullpen.

White Sox's Kendall Graveman: Picks up second save

Graveman allowed one hit and walked one across a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save Tuesday against the Guardians. Graveman entered the game with a three-run lead and retired the first two batters he faced. He made things interesting by allowing two hitters to reach base, but he ultimately recorded his second save without much trouble. Graveman has had a strong start to the season by maintaining a 1.76 ERA and 1.17 WHIP with a 15:5 K:BB across 15.1 frames, though he only worked the ninth inning because Liam Hendriks had appeared in three out of the last four games.

White Sox's Kendall Graveman: Tallies fifth hold

Graveman threw a scoreless eighth inning while allowing one hit and striking out one Monday against the Angels. Graveman entered in the eighth inning with a 3-0 lead. After allowing a leadoff single, he made quick work of the next three batters he faced to earn his fifth hold of the season. Graveman has held opposing teams scoreless in nine of his 11 appearances this season, and he also has an impressive 14:4 K:BB across 12.1 innings. Liam Hendriks appears to have rebounded from some early season struggles and a back injury, though Graveman would likely be next in line for save opportunities.

White Sox's Kendall Graveman: Strong start to season

Graveman allowed one hit and struck out one across a scoreless eighth inning Tuesday against the Mariners. Graveman has already made three appearances this season, and he's made a strong impression with his new club. He has yet to allow a run, while also surrendering only two hits across 3.2 frames. Despite some early-season struggles from Liam Hendriks, Graveman doesn't' project for many save chances, but he has collected two holds and should also maintain strong ratios while throwing a high volume of innings.

What to Expect From Kendall Graveman

Happy lockout, y’all, and may the far-fetched dreams of Semien or Scherzer rest in pieces. Now it’s my job to get you excited about Kendall Graveman instead. The good news is that Graveman is actually pretty good. It’s understandable that some might be nervous about committing $24 million (money that belongs to Jerry Reinsdorf and is of no material consequence to fans, it should be noted) to a pitcher who had never even posted a semi-full season with an ERA below 4.00 until his 1.77 mark in 2021. You also might see some of his advanced stats and wonder whether they might have just paid up for a fluke: His 3.19 FIP and 3.71 xERA are fine, but it wouldn’t quite be the relief ace that my friend Michael Ajeto saw before any of us did in early April.
