WSC Birth Years: Tyler Danish
Born: September 12, 1994
Drafted in the second round of the 2013 amateur draft by the White Sox, Tyler made his MLB debut for Chicago on June 11, 2016, one day after first round pick, Tim Anderson made his MLB debut for the ChiSox. Making his debut against the Kansas City Royals, in front of a home crowd, Danish had a less than stellar appearance. Tyler gave up three hits and a walk, while ballooning his ERA to 13.50 in two-thirds of an inning. Manager Robin Ventura trotted him out again the next day, with much better results. Another two-thirds of an inning pitched against Kansas City, giving up only one hit, this time with no batters crossing the plate.
Danish made a third consecutive appearance on June 13th, this time against the Tigers, giving up two hits and two walks in one-third inning. Tyler would be sent back down to the minors after three games, but the experience should suit him well. He should be able to make some adjustments and come back strong, when his next opportunity arises.
