When was the last time the Sox (or MLB team for that matter) had a pitcher lose 10 games in a season without a start?
For the White Sox, it's happened 3 other times:

Wilbur Wood pulled the trick in 1970 and 1969. Clint Brown did it once in 1939.

For all of Major League Baseball, it's Matt Thornton is the 79th pitcher in history to pull a 0 GS, 10 L season, including 2 others this year; Fernando Rodriguez (Houston) and Alfredo Aceves (Boston). Here's the whole list, for those of you who subscribe to B-R's Play Index: http://www.baseball-reference.com/pl...lt_table::none
