Rotowire: Apr 11 / 7:23a ET
News: Putnam allowed three runs (two earned) on three hits in an inning against the Twins on Friday.
Impact: This was the second clunker in as many appearances for Putnam, who had also allowed a pair of runs Wednesday against the Royals. He was one of the White Sox's most reliable relievers in 2014, but he may find himself out of favor (or out of the majors) if this run continues.
Rotowire: Mar 21 / 8:35a ET
News: Putnam allowed three runs on two hits and a walk in the ninth inning against the Cubs on Friday.
Impact: This was a high scoring affair (a total of 17 runs were scored), and Putnam was just one of four White Sox pitchers to allow multiple runs. Closer-to-be David Robertson has struggled this spring, and Putnam is likely on the list of replacements if Robertson's long leash gets tightened at any point.
