My latest alphabetical review — @soxnerd style — of the 2021 White Sox continues with a look at pitcher ZACK BURDI, who was waived on Aug. 18:

*What would Burdi’s career trajectory been like if he could have mastered pitching at Guaranteed Rate Field?

The Downers Grove, Ill., native departed the Sox 0-1 with a 12.96 ERA in eight outings in home assignments. In 8.1 innings, the right-hander allowed 16 hits, including a whopping six home runs. Opponents slashed .400/.442/.875 off Burdi at 35th and Shields.

On the road, Burdi was much better for the Sox. In six road appearances, Burdi logged a 3.38 ERA while allowing just one home run in eight innings. Opponents slugged just .387 when Burdi pitched as a visitor for the Sox.

*Burdi is the only pitcher from the University of Louisville to play for the White Sox.

*Next: Jake Burger
