The Chicago White Sox is a team that needs to avoid as many injuries as they can in 2022. 2021 was a disaster in that department so they are hoping that the tides turn this year. Unfortunately, things haven’t started on the right foot when it comes to the injured list.

It started late last week when the White Sox announced that Garrett Crochet is likely headed for Tommy John surgery. That is really tough as he was looking like someone that was going to have a big role in a very good White Sox bullpen. Hopefully, he comes back better than ever next year.

On Saturday night, Lance Lynn left a spring training outing with knee soreness which was not a pretty sight to see. Lynn was one of the best pitchers in the American League in 2021 so missing him for a long time would be devastating. He was so good that he was nominated for the Cy Young.

Well, the timetable for Lynn was announced by the White Sox on Sunday night and it isn’t great. It isn’t necessarily devastating but it is something that could make things hard in the long term. Lynn is going to be out until mid-May with this injury after having surgery on Tuesday.

The Chicago White Sox has a timetable for Lance Lynn’s return to MLB action.

He is going to spend four weeks off of the mound before getting back into it. Then, he will need some time to build it back up which could be done through a couple of rehab starts. As mentioned before, this isn’t the best news but it isn’t the worst news either.

It is better than losing him for the bulk of the season like they are with Garrett Crochet. Lynn is a workhorse that wants the ball as much as possible. He is going to work his way back quickly which is good to know for White Sox fans.

His character will be big in helping him pitch again soon. He wants to be out there competing at the highest level so he will do what needs to be done to reach that point. When he makes his season debut a month into the season, expect big things once again.
