Chicago White Sox Player News: Pitchers

News: Nova will throw one inning to open Wednesday's game against the Twins instead of throwing his scheduled bullpen session, Scott Merkin of reports.
Impact: Dylan Covey (shoulder soreness) was scratched from that start so Nova will open the bullpen game in his stead. It sounds like this will not affect his ability to stay on turn and start Saturday's game against the Tigers.
News: Covey will not make his scheduled start Wednesday against the Twins due to shoulder soreness, Scott Merkin of reports.
Impact: Ivan Nova will throw an inning instead of his scheduled bullpen session that day, so it sounds like he may be the opener in a bullpen game. Covey is unlikely to return this season, according to Merkin.
News: Giolito's lat strain is not a long-term concern, Scott Merkin of reports.
Impact: Giolito was shut down for the season with a lat strain Monday, but described the issue as "as mild as it gets." It doesn't sound as though he'll be affected by the time next season begins.
News: Lopez (9-14) allowed five runs on nine hits and two walks over 5.1 innings Monday, striking out two batters and taking the loss against Minnesota.
Impact: On the bright side, Lopez didn't allow a home run Monday after serving up four in his last start. He's given up 11 runs over his last two outings, though, inflating his ERA from 5.17 to 5.44. The 25-year-old will look to get back on track in Detroit on Sunday.
News: Detwiler will start Tuesday's game against the Twins, Scott Merkin of reports.
Impact: Detwiler was booted from Chicago's starting rotation at the beginning of the month, but following a season-ending injury to Lucas Giolito (lat), Detwiler appears to be in line to finish 2019 as a starter. He lasted just 2.2 frames in his last outing Sept. 2 against Cleveland, surrendering four runs on four hits and six walks.
News: Giolito won't pitch again this season after being diagnosed with a mild lat strain, Scott Merkin of reports.
Impact: Giolito evidently picked up the injury during his last start Thursday against Kansas City, and as a result, he'll be shut down for the last few weeks of the 2019 campaign. Ross Detwiler will start for Giolito on Tuesday in Minnesota.
