Rotowire: May 15 / 11:13p ET
News: Duke picked up his first save of the season while tossing 1.1 scoreless innings in Friday's win over the A's.
Impact: Duke was simply stepping in for David Robertson, who had pitched in four of the White Sox's previous five games entering Friday night. The save was the second of Duke's career, and his only path to regular ninth-inning work includes an injury to Robertson.
Rotowire: May 12 / 4:31a ET
News: Duke allowed two home runs in two-thirds of an inning against the Brewers on Monday to take the loss.
Impact: He entered a tie game in the top of the ninth, and he exited with a three-run deficit. Duke has been the White Sox's most heavily used reliever this season, and he should continue to fill that role despite the clunker Monday.
Rotowire: Apr 9 / 5:27a ET
News: Duke threw a scoreless inning against the Royals on Wednesday to mark his White Sox debut.
Impact: He entered to start the seventh inning of a tied game, and he was able to pitch around two base runners with one out. Duke figures to be called on frequently in high-leverage situations this year for the White Sox, generally in the seventh and eighth innings.
