5:13pm: Manager Tony La Russa tells reporters, together with Jesse Rogers of ESPN, that Anderson is “for sure” happening the injured record.
2:52pm: White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson suffered a strained proper groin throughout the fifth inning of in the present day’s sport with the Cubs. While fielding a grounder and throwing out P.J. Higgins at first base, Anderson fell to the bottom after making the play and was clearly favoring his proper leg. Anderson needed to be helped off the sphere after being examined by crew trainers, and was changed at shortstop by Danny Mendick.
In what has already been an injury-plagued season for the White Sox, shedding Anderson for any vital period of time could be the most important setback but. Anderson has been the cornerstone of an in any other case inconsistent lineup, hitting .356/.393/.503 with 5 homers and eight steals (out of eight possibilities) in 173 plate appearances.
The Sox introduced that Anderson will endure additional exams on Monday, so the severity of the pressure received’t be identified for some time but. It would appear like Anderson must be positioned on the 10-day injured record, although if it’s a lesser pressure, he may not miss an excessive amount of motion.
Mendick and Leury Garcia could be the highest candidates to play shortstop, although the White Sox are in any other case quick on skilled infield depth on the minor league stage. If Anderson’s groin harm does require an prolonged absence, it wouldn’t be stunning to see Chicago purchase a veteran infielder at the least on a minor league contract to assist present extra backup.
