Now that Michael Kopech is a new father, he has returned to the Chicago White Sox from the paternity list. On Friday morning, the club reinstated the right-hander and optioned reliever Ryan Burr to Triple-A Charlotte.

His new child’s arrival worked out timing-wise for Kopech as he will not have to miss a turn in the White Sox rotation. Had he still been on the paternity list through the weekend, Johnny Cueto would have pitched Saturday against the Yankees. On the season, Michael Kopech owns an 0-1 record, 1.54 ERA, 0.943 WHIP, and 33 strikeouts across 35 innings.

As for Ryan Burr, recent struggles result in a demotion to the Triple-A club. Burr has a 6.00 ERA, 7.21 FIP, and 1.333 WHIP in nine innings across eight appearances so far this season. The right-hander began the year on the injured list (shoulder strain) before joining the Chicago White Sox roster on April 29.
