The Chicago White Sox added Houston Astros closer Brett Myers to their bullpen before the trade deadline, sending over two pitching prospects and a player to be named later. The player has been named latter, and it's 21-year-old pitching prospect Chris Devenski, a left-hander who was drafted in the 25th round of the 2011 draft.
Devenski's statistical line:
Devenski was a converted shortstop in college, and Baseball America had this to say about him after the 2011 draft:
Devenski ran his fastball up to 94 mph in the fall, but he's been more 90-92 and straight this spring, and there were outings when he worked in the high 80s. His slider and changeup are serviceable.
