  • White Sox's Tanner Banks: Converts save chance Thursday

    Banks earned a save against Seattle on Thursday, striking out two batters in a perfect 10th inning.

    Michael Kopech got the opportunity to notch a save in the ninth, but he blew the chance by serving up a game-tying solo shot to Julio Rodriguez. Chicago was able to push across a run in the top of the 10th, and Banks was handed the ball with a chance to earn a save in the bottom of that frame. The left-hander looked good doing so, fanning the first two batters he faced before ending the game by inducing a flyout. It was Banks' second save this season, and he has a 4.73 ERA though 32.1 innings. He isn't likely to see consistent save chances despite Kopech's struggles in the closer role.

  • White Sox's Tanner Banks: Squanders save chance

    Banks blew the save Sunday against the Red Sox, allowing one run on one hit with one strikeout during the ninth inning.

    Despite the White Sox's fluid closer role, Banks hadn't seen much ninth-inning work this season but took the mound Sunday with a one-run lead. He couldn't convert what would've been his second save of 2024, as he allowed a leadoff double to David Hamilton, who stole third and was brought home on a sacrifice fly by Reese McGuire to send the game to extras. While it's worth noting that Banks received a save chance, it's tough to project who'll receive ninth-inning work consistently for Chicago.

  • White Sox's Tanner Banks: Picks up first save

    Banks struck out the only batter he faced to record the final out of Saturday's 6-5 extra-inning win over the Cardinals and collect his first save of the season.

    The 32-year-old southpaw faced Ivan Herrera with the bases loaded and two outs after a rain delay that lasted over three hours interrupted the 10th inning, and Banks got the job done on four pitches. John Brebbia had originally gotten the call in the save situation before the delay, while Michael Kopech pitched the ninth, so Banks' usage was more due to the unusual circumstances than his prominence in the White Sox bullpen. On the season, Banks has a 5.65 ERA and 1.88 WHIP through 14.1 innings, but his 18:4 K:BB suggests he's been unlucky so far.

  • White Sox's Tanner Banks: Impresses as opener

    Banks (0-1) was saddled with his first loss, allowing one run on two hits over 2.1 innings during Monday's 4-0 defeat to the Guardians. He struck out five.

    Banks served as the opener and showed very well as he threw 43 pitches and worked into the third inning while recording all five outs by way of the strikeout. Banks' previous two outings only lasted one inning each and totaled 40 pitches, but the White Sox allowed him to top that combined total during Monday's loss. The pitch count was not entirely unfamiliar territory for Banks, who worked as many as four innings last season, topping 50 pitches in seven outings.

  • White Sox's Tanner Banks: Set for opener duties

    Banks will serve as an opener in Monday's game in Cleveland, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    The White Sox have utilized just four traditional starters thus far and that will continue Monday with Banks receiving an opener assignment. Banks is unscored upon in two appearances this season.

  • White Sox's Tanner Banks: Secures roster spot

    Banks will be a member of the White Sox's bullpen to begin the regular season, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Banks has been a key contributor out of the team's bullpen for the last two seasons, throwing a combined 124 innings. He hasn't been used in high-leverage roles, however, as he has just one career save and two career holds. Even so, manager Pedro Grifol has stated that the White Sox will not enter the season with a defined closer, so Banks could enter the picture if he starts the season well.

  • White Sox's Tanner Banks: Collects first career save

    Banks walked two batters and struck out one in two-thirds of an inning Saturday to record his first career save in a 7-6 win over the Twins.

    The White Sox held a 7-1 lead heading into the eighth inning, but after Gregory Santos and Lane Ramsey made a mess of things, Banks took over and escaped with the win barely intact despite walking in a run, which got charged to Ramsey. Banks hasn't had a run added to his own ledger in seven straight appearances, posting a 0.75 WHIP and 9:4 K:BB through 10.2 innings over that stretch, but the southpaw is unlikely to be a regular part of the high-leverage mix down the stretch -- he has more losses (three) than saves and holds combined (one of each) this season.

  • White Sox's Tanner Banks: Returns to bullpen

    Banks worked in relief in Saturday's 3-0 loss to the Cardinals, covering two innings and striking out four while allowing one earned run on one hit and one walk.

    Banks was making his first appearance since June 30, when he started in Oakland in what ended up being a tandem arrangement with Jesse Scholtens. The White Sox elected to hand Scholtens a start this past week against Toronto, so he looks as though he'll retain a back-end rotation spot over Banks for the time being.

  • White Sox's Tanner Banks: Takes loss against Athletics

    Banks (0-3) allowed four earned runs on five hits and a walk while striking out three over four innings to take the loss Friday against the Athletics.

    Banks started his third consecutive game, with Friday's outing marking his longest appearance of the season. He's had poor results in the new role, allowing eight earned runs across 10.1 innings to go along with a more impressive 10:3 K:BB. It's unlikely that Banks will be stretched out as a traditional starter, though he may continue in the hybrid role so long as Mike Clevinger (biceps) is out.

  • White Sox's Tanner Banks: Drawing start Friday

    Banks will start for the White Sox on Friday in Oakland, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Banks will be making his third straight appearance as a starter, though he hasn't worked more than 3.2 innings in any outing so he could essentially be serving as an extended opener. Jesse Scholtens followed Banks the last time out and is a candidate to do so again Friday.

  • White Sox's Tanner Banks: Opening Sunday

    Banks will start Sunday's game against the Red Sox, Vinnie Duber of reports.

    The left-hander allowed three runs across 3.2 frames as an opener last week and will make another start versus Boston. Banks threw a season-high 63 pitches in that outing and isn't likely to work much deeper Sunday before giving way to the bullpen.

  • White Sox's Tanner Banks: Coughs up three runs

    Banks dropped to 0-2 after striking out three and surrendering three runs on five hits over 3.2 innings in Monday's 5-2 loss to Texas.

    Though Banks was serving as the White Sox's opening pitcher of the day, he ended up working the longest of the six hurlers that manager Pedro Grifol deployed on the night. Banks gave up a run in each of the first, third and fourth innings, raising his season ERA to 4.70 across 15.1 frames. On a more positive note, he has a solid 13:2 K:BB on the campaign.

  • White Sox's Tanner Banks: Opening Monday's contest

    Banks will serve as the White Sox's opening pitcher for Monday's game against the Rangers, LaMond Pope of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    During stops in the majors and minors this season, Banks has made 11 appearances spanning between two and three innings, and while he shouldn't be expected to work deep enough into Monday's contest to qualify for a win, he'll likely offer more length than the typical opener. Once Banks exits the contest, the White Sox could turn to Jesse Scholtens to cover multiple innings behind him.

  • White Sox's Tanner Banks: Summoned from Triple-A

    Chicago recalled Banks from Triple-A Charlotte on Sunday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Banks was recalled after the White Sox placed Liam Hendriks on the 15-day injured list with elbow inflammation. Banks has been effective at the major-league level with a career 3.10 ERA in 61 innings over 39 appearances, and he'll likely be a multi-inning middle relief option for the White Sox while he's with the club.

  • White Sox's Tanner Banks: Returned to Triple-A

    Banks was returned to Triple-A Charlotte after the second game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Yankees.

    Banks was added as the 27th man for the second game of the twin bill. He did not appear in the contest but is likely to serve as bullpen depth at some point during the remainder of the 2023 campaign.

  • White Sox's Tanner Banks: Serving as 27th man

    Banks was added to the White Sox roster as the 27th man for Thursday's doubleheader against the Yankees.

    The White Sox used five pitchers in their Game 1 win over the Yankees, including several of their high-leverage relievers. Banks could reasonably be expected to see game action in the nightcap as a result, and he has performed well at the big-league level across the last two seasons by maintaining a 3.10 ERA and 54:20 K:BB across 61 frames.

  • White Sox's Tanner Banks: Expected to be 27th man

    Banks is expected to be recalled to serve as the 27th man for the White Sox in Thursday's doubleheader versus the Yankees, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    Banks holds a 3.38 ERA in four appearances with the White Sox this season and a 3.13 ERA and 30:3 K:BB across 23 relief innings with Triple-A Charlotte. He'll offer the club a bullpen arm capable of going multiple frames.

  • White Sox's Tanner Banks: Optioned to Triple-A

    Banks was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte by the White Sox on Thursday.

    Banks has yielded three runs over eight relief innings during his time in the majors this season. The 31-year-old is clearing out to make room for Lucas Giolito's return from the bereavement list.

  • White Sox's Tanner Banks: Back in majors

    Banks was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte on Thursday, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    Banks was among the last players to be optioned at the close of spring training, though he'll now get his chance in the big-league bullpen. He debuted with the White Sox in 2022 and posted a solid 3.06 ERA and 1.13 WHIP with a 49:18 K:BB across 53 frames.
