There was a lot of hype surrounding 2014 first-round draft pick Michael Kopech when he finally made his major league debut a couple of weeks ago. Fortunately for the White Sox, the 22-year-old flamethrower has already proven he was worth the wait.
Kopech has made three starts since joining Chicago, and even though he’s had only nine strikeouts — uncharacteristic considering his reputation for fanning hitters with regularity — he’s also surrendered just a single run.
