Dylan Cease and his "very sexy mustache" did not make the All-Star team. Not yet, anyway. But regardless, he's pitched like one of the best in baseball for the White Sox this season.
Even as Michael Kopech rates as one of baseball's best pitchers, the White Sox will continue to manage his workload. And with Lance Lynn nearing his return, there's a lot left to shake out for the starting rotation.
Dylan Cease was incredible against the Angels on Monday, striking out 11, including three punch outs of Mike Trout, and showing how far he's come as a potential Cy Young type for the White Sox.
The White Sox head into the 2022 season with a plan of how to handle Michael Kopech and Garrett Crochet, two pitchers who are important to their title chase this year and in the years to come.
Dylan Cease and the White Sox are hoping for an even better sequel in the wake of the right-hander's breakout campaign a year ago. The team's World Series hopes depend on it.
There's a battle on for the backup catcher job, plus a buried beef from the ALDS, Yoán Moncada looking to steal some bases and more from White Sox camp.
