WSC Birth Years: Zach Stewart
Born: September 28, 1986
Zach came to the White Sox from the Toronto Blue Jays with Jason Frasor for Edwin Jackson and Mark Teahen. Stewart has had flashes of brilliance, such as throwing seven perfect innings against the Minnesota Twins before giving up a hit to Danny Valencia. Then he retired the last six batters.
Stewart can be frustrating while navigating through the growing pains of a young pitcher. He does have a tendency to give up home runs to opponents. Six out of the nine home runs given up during the 2011 season while with the White Sox were to Kansas City Royals batters.
