The 22-year-old Kopech was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte on Aug. 21 and made four starts with the White Sox, going 1-1 with a 5.02 ERA. Although two of the right-hander's first three starts were shortened by rain, the 6-foot-3 Kopech was impressive in all three, allowing just one run in 11 innings.
Analysis: This is terrible news for one of the top prospects in baseball and the White Sox after the flamethrower had generated so much excited in his first two starts.
