White Sox shut down pitching prospect after he reached innings limit. The pitching prospect dominated Single-A and Double-A this season.

The Chicago White Sox have shut down pitching prospect Dylan Cease for the remainder of this season. Cease reached an innings limit and won’t pitch again until 2019. The right-handed pitcher went a combined 12-2 with a 2.40 ERA in 23 starts between Single-A and Double-A.

Cease was acquired last season in a trade with the Chicago Cubs that also included Eloy Jimenez in exchange for Jose Quintana. After going 9-2 with a 2.89 ERA in 13 starts with Winston-Salem, Cease followed that up by going 3-0 with a 1.72 ERA in 10 starts with Birmingham. This past Thursday, Cease pitched five innings while allowing two walks, no earned runs and recorded 11 strikeouts.

The Sox fifth-ranked prospect pitched a total of 124 innings, a career-high. Cease had never pitched more than 100 innings in a season as his previous career-high was 93.1 innings in 2017. Shutting down Cease this season was the right call as the Sox continue being patient with their top prospects.
