In a corresponding roster move, the White Sox called up right-hander Brian Omogrosso from Triple-A.
Bruney only appeared in one game with the White Sox before hitting the shelf. The 30-year-old allowed two walks over a scoreless inning of work against the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday.
Bruney had spent most of the season with the White Sox Triple-A affiliate. Over his 23 appearances, including three starts, Bruney maintained an ERA and WHIP of 1.85 and 1.000 with 9.5 SO/9 and 3.4 BB/9.
According to JJ Stankevitz of CSNChicago.com, Omogrosso will bring an upper-90’s fastball and gaudy strikeout numbers to the majors. His next appearance in the bigs will be his first, as the 28-year-old has spent seven seasons pitching in the White Sox minor league system.
Over his 21 appearances this season for Chicago’s Triple-A affiliate, Omogrosso has posted an ERA and WHIP of 4.09 and 1.030 with 10.9 SO/9 and 1.6 BB/9.
