White Sox Move Philip Humber To The Bullpen

The Chicago White Sox have decided to move Philip Humber to the bullpen, and it's a decision that Humber has accepted without complaint:

"I don’t think that going to the bullpen is a demotion," Humber said Monday. "That’s disrespectful to the guys who are in the bullpen to say, ‘I’m good enough to start.’ Well, I’m hoping I’m good enough to be in the bullpen. That’s the attitude I take as far as whatever role I’m given, whenever they give me the ball, I’m going to do the best I can with it."

Humber is 5-5 with a 6.14 ERA in 16 starts this season. Since throwing a perfect game against the Mariners, his ERA is 7.21.
