Samardzija threw a complete-game shutout against the Orioles on Thursday, scattering four hits and one walk in the win.

Samrdzija has surely not been the pitcher the White Sox were expecting when they traded for him in the offseason, but he held the majors' best offense to four singles Thursday. The impending free agent should be in a multitude of trade rumors over the coming month, and it would be a surprise if he were still on the south side come Aug. 1.

Samardzija took a tough no-decision Saturday, allowing just one run on three hits and two walks over 7.2 innings while striking out nine.

He's now lasted at least seven innings in six straight outings, posting a somewhat more Samardzija-like 3.73 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 39:8 K:BB ratio in 43.1 innings over that stretch. The struggling White Sox offense has made it tough for him to find wins this season, but if you need solid ratios and strikeouts, it might be worth checking to see if you can get him at a bit of a discount. Samardzija's next start comes at home against the Jays on Thursday.

Samardzija went 7.1 innings in a no-decision against the Tigers on Sunday, allowing four runs on five hits and three walks while striking out four.

The right-hander was efficient until the eighth inning, when the Tigers broke out for four runs to tie the game. That was it for Samardzija, who has now completed seventh innings in five consecutive starts, yet has only picked up one win over that span. Things haven't gone smoothly for Samardzija so far this season, but his FIP is actually a little below his career mark.

Samardzija won his fifth game Tuesday against the Twins as he allowed two runs on eight hits and a walk over seven innings with seven strikeouts.

Samardzija made it through seven innings for the third consecutive outing and finally earned the win this time after back-to-back no decisions. He has 21 strikeouts against six walks in this span and is starting to look like the top-of-the-rotation starter the White Sox expected when they acquired him. His ERA is down to 4.53.
