IT'S HAPPENING: @MichaelKopech5 is coming to Chicago!
— Chicago White Sox (@whitesox) August 19, 2018
The Chicago White Sox announced on Sunday that they have called up pitching prospect Michael Kopech. The right handed flamethrower has a 7-7 record in 24 starts with a 3.50 ERA with the Triple A Charlotte Knights. He added 170 strikeouts in 126.1 innings.
Making the trip to Chicago is his actress girlfriend Vanessa Morgan. Talk about bringing the heat. She had a special message for Kopech as she goes along for the ride.
Kopech will get his first MLB start for the White Sox on Tuesday. Let’s hope Vanessa gets a little camera time.
