White Sox Injury Update: Matt Lindstrom getting closer to rehab assignment


By on 7/21/2014 04:00:00 PM

Chicago White Sox relief pitcher Matt Lindstrom threw a successful bullpen assignment Saturday and will begin a minor league rehab assignment soon if he continues to progress well this week, reports Scott Merkin of MLB.com:


Lindstrom injured his ankle while fielding a bunt on May 19 against the Kansas City Royals, requiring surgery. He will throw another bullpen session Monday followed by live batting practice over the weekend before a decision about his rehab assignment is made.

Before the injury, Lindstrom was used as Chicago’s closer, picking up six saves while blowing three. Overall, Lindstrom has a 3.32 ERA (4.77 FIP) in 19 games this season.

It is unclear if or when Lindstrom will resume the closing duties after his rehab assignment. The White Sox have gone to a closer-by-committee approach over the last few weeks after replacement Ronald Belisario struggled in the role.
