White Sox Injury Update: Moises Sierra starts rehab

By on 8/26/2014 11:00:00 AM

The Chicago White Sox, who begin a series against the Cleveland Indians tonight, are sitting in fourth place in the American League Central with a record of 59-71. They are coming off a 7-4 walk-off loss at the hands of the New York Yankees. There is some good news on the injury front, as outfielder Moises Sierra had a successful start to his rehab assignment last night at Charlotte.

I reported on August 17 that Sierra was placed on the 15-day disabled list with an oblique strain. Sierra was batting .236 with two home runs and nine RBI this season prior to going on the DL.

An update on Sierra, as reported at the official website of the Charlotte Knights,  is that he began a rehab assignment with the Charlotte Knights on Monday. Sierra started in right field and batted second. He went 2-for-5 with a stolen base and a run scored in Charlotte's 6-4 win over the Norfolk Tides. The is no indication as to how many rehab games Sierra will need before returning to the White Sox.

Sierra, in his third Major League season, batted .290 with a home run and 13 RBI for the Blue Jays last season.  He is a career .246 hitter with nine home runs and 37 RBI.
