As Hawk Harrelson might say, you can take it off the board of Daniel Schlereth’s pitching line from Friday. After a review from MLB executive VP of baseball operations Joe Torre, Alejandro De Aza’s eighth-inning triple from Friday’s game has been changed to a three-base error charged to Delmon Young. The announcement came in Tuesday’s White Sox game notes and was also reported by Chicago Tribune reporter Mark Gonzales.
The scoring change means the two runs previously charged to Schlereth are now unearned. His ERA, which was 9.00 entering today, is now 4.50.
The process of appealing scoring decisions changed under the new collective bargaining agreement. Teams and players no longer ask the official scorer to reconsider a decision. It now goes through Major League Baseball.
