The right-hander was picked in the fifth round of the 2018 draft by the White Sox out of Indiana.
Here’s just a glimpse of Stiever dominating in 2019.

Overall in 2019, Stiever made 26 starts and posted a 3.48 ERA in 145 innings. That included a 2.15 ERA with Winston-Salem at High A-Ball. Incredible season for him, striking out 154 batters and walking only 27.
Should be yet another fun afternoon for White Sox fans. The future is here and it’s exciting on the south side.
