The Chicago White Sox used a carousel of left-handed relief pitchers in 2022. This was all in an attempt to replace Garrett Crochet and Aaron Bummer, both of whom missed significant time due to injuries. The White Sox exhausted all of their internal left-handed options, including Anderson Severino, Bennett Sousa, and Tanner Banks.

Severino and Sousa were sent down and never returned while Banks found some success in a low-leverage role. The White Sox eventually acquired Jake Diekman at the trade deadline.

Anderson Severnio's 2022 Season

Like Banks and Sousa, Severino made his MLB debut for the White Sox in 2022. The now-28-year-old previously spent several years in the New York Yankees system. The rookie’s stay in Chicago was a brief one.

Severino pitched 7.1 innings to the tune of a 6.14 ERA and 1.5 WHIP. All of those innings came in April before he was sent down to Triple-A Charlotte.

He spent the rest of 2022 in Charlotte, where he posted an 11.40 ERA in 30 innings. Woof.

What's On Tap Next?

The Chicago White Sox DFA'd Anderson Severino on Sept. 9. It wouldn’t come as a surprise if he’s with another organization in 2023. Garrett Crochet's return and a healthy Aaron Bummer should help stabilize the Sox' left-handed options moving forward.
