All-Decade Chicago White Sox Bullpen

David Robertson, Closer

More from Call to the Pen

  • Years: 2015-2017
  • Innings: 159
  • Saves: 84

Robertson came to the Chicago White Sox as a free agent and delivered two solid seasons as the bullpen’s anchor. He saved 34 games in 60 appearances in 2015, adding another 37 in 62 appearances in 2016.

The problem, of course, was that the White Sox were a fourth-place club both seasons, so their need for an elite closer was shall we see restricted by reality. Eventually coming to that conclusion themselves, the Sox in mid-season 2017 traded Robertson to the Yankees.


Dan Jennings, Left-Handed Setup

  • Years: 2015-2017
  • Innings: 161.
  • Saves: 1

Jennings went 9-7 in 165 appearances during his three seasons with the White Sox. He allowed 147 hits in 161 innings, with a 131 ERA+. In Jennings’ best season, 2016, he made 64 appearances, allowed just 14 earned runs in 60 innings, and rang up a 196 ERA+.


Addison Reed, Right-Handed Setup

  • Years: 2011-2013
  • Innings: 133
  • Saves: 69

Next. The Phillies All-Decade Team, 2010-19. dark

A September 2011 callup, Reed was the Sox closer in 2012 and 2013. In 130 appearances, he averaged 133 innings of work with a 3.79 ERA in 2012. Following the 2013 season, the White Sox traded Reed to Arizona for Matt Davidson.
