White Sox Place Tim Anderson On Injured Record
The White Sox introduced Wednesday that they’ve positioned shortstop Tim Anderson on the 10-day injured record, retroactive to April 5, as a consequence of a strained left hamstring. Anderson exited Sunday’s sport as a consequence of tightness in his hamstring, and it could appear that discomfort has not dissipated. Fellow infielder Danny Mendick was recalled from the Sox’ alternate website in Schaumburg to take Anderson’s spot on the roster.
With Anderson sidelined quickly, the Sox are down two of their finest hitters early within the season. Anderson’s absence clearly isn’t anticipated to be as prolonged as that of Eloy Jimenez, who is predicted to overlook nearly all of the season as a consequence of a ruptured pectoral tendon, however his absence will probably be felt within the short-term.
Anderson, 27, was out to only a 3-for-15 begin in 2021, although his work on the plate since Opening Day 2019 speaks for itself. He’s been not simply one in all Chicago’s finest hitters over the previous two seasons however among the finest hitters on the planet, raking at a .331/.357/.514 batting line with 28 homers, 43 doubles and a triple in 739 journeys to the plate.
Mendick, a profession .260/.292/.404 hitter in 154 large league plate appearances gained’t replicate that offensive output, however he’ll give the South Siders a strong glove to put in on the place whereas Anderson’s harm heals. He’s within the lineup at shortstop right now, batting ninth for the sequence finale in opposition to the Mariners at T-Cellular Park.
