Carroll has a major league record of 6-11 with a 4.60 ERA in 47 games/19 starts with Chicago from 2014-16. He was 5-10 in 26 games/10 starts with the White Sox in 2014 and posted a 3.44 ERA in 11 relief outings a year ago. He spent his first six pro seasons in the Cincinnati organization before signing as a free agent with Chicago in July 2012.
