White Sox Injury Report: Matt Lindstrom to throw sim game Tuesday

By on 7/28/2014 12:30:00 PM

The Chicago White Sox dropped to four game below .500 at 51-55 following a 4-2 loss to the Minnesota Twins on Sunday. At eight games out and fourth place in the American League Central, the White Sox will have to go on a roll to get back into contention in the division. At 24th in the league in ERA, the White Sox need to improve their pitching to have any chance. One pitcher who figures to help is Matt Lindstrom, who is getting closer to returning from the disabled list.

Our own Nathaniel Reeves reported on July 21 that Lindstrom threw a successful bullpen session on July 19 and would begin a minor league rehab assignment soon if he continued to progress.

An update on Lindstrom, as reported by Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times, is that Lindstrom expects to be ready to return to the White Sox when the team begins a four-game series against the Seattle Mariners on August 7.

Lindstrom started the season as the closer and was sidelined with an ankle injury.  He last pitched on May 19 and then had surgery. He's scheduled to throw a simulated game tomorrow before heading out on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Charlotte. Although Lindstrom still has mild discomfort, it does not affect his throwing.

Lindstrom has pitched for the Marlins, Astros, Rockies, Orioles, Diamondbacks and White Sox during his eight-year career. In 19 games this season, Lindstrom is 2-1, with six saves and a 3.22 ERA. In 453 career games, Lindstrom is 17-20 with a 3.55 ERA.
