Chicago White Sox Morning BP (5/20)


What do you know, the Chicago White Sox showed some signs of life on Monday night, battling back from a five-run deficit and showing they can still play the game of baseball, winning by a 7-6 score over the Kansas City Royals.

It wasn’t a very pretty win because of what occurred early on with Scott Carroll getting hit hard, but the White Sox went back to the long ball to gain the victory with three him runs.

White Sox are 22-24 on the season

Maybe the best news of the day wasn’t the win by the White Sox, but the news of how Jose Abreu has no tear in his injured left ankle was a sigh of relief as he recovers on the 15-day DL.

In an article on the Chicago Sun-Times, it states on the Abreu situation:

“It’s not a given that Abreu will be fine when his time on the disabled list is up … (he) has posterior tibial tendinitis in his left ankle. That ankle will be in a boot for a few days, and he’ll be re-evaluated when the Sox return to Chicago (Thursday).”

Let’s all hope he’s healing well during this stint, as the White Sox will only go as far as Abreu can take them in 2014.
