WSC Birth Years: Jhonny Nunez

Card #28 - Jhonny Nunez

Born: November 26, 1985

Jhonny only appeared in seven games in 2009. Most of those occurred in blowout games. It included his Major League debut on August 2nd in the ninth inning with two outs. In fact, four out of the seven appearances were game finishers.

5.2 innings in seven games isn't really a fair assessment of Jhonny's talent. Nunez may find a better fit on the 2010 team. There may be more chances for him. After a full year in the White Sox system, 2010 should bring a more defined role.

Jhonny came to the Sox in the Nick Swisher trade of November 2008. He was able to slip into the White Sox bullpen, after bouncing around between the Dodgers, Nationals and Yankees farm systems.

I thought Jhonny (Peralta) was a unique name. It's not?

I guess it's not so unique anymore.
