White Sox Injury Update: Scott Carroll exits with blister

By on 7/28/2014 11:15:00 AM

Chicago White Sox starter Scott Carroll was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Minnesota Twins after six innings because of a blister on his right middle finger. Carroll had looked good through the first six innings but Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune tweeted that manager Robin Ventura said the blister had worsened to the point that they had to remove the right-hander from the game:

Carroll threw just 78 pitches through those first six innings, striking out four and allowing just one earned run. He told Kane that he had wanted to go deeper into the game but he wasn't able to finish pitches as normal, so he and the team thought it was best for him to exit early.

The next inning did not turn out well, as Carroll's pitching replacement, Ronald Belisario, promptly loaded the bases with no outs and was replaced by Javy Guerra, who allowed a sacrifice fly and single to let all three inherited runners score. The 2-1 lead thus turned into a 4-2 deficit that Chicago wasn't able to overcome.
