Rick Hahn provides injury updates on Lynn, Jimenez, and Anderson

Things appear to be trending in the right direction from a health standpoint.

In his Tuesday meeting with Chicago media, White Sox GM Rick Hahn provided positive updates on Lance Lynn, Eloy Jimenez, and Tim Anderson. They are, as follows:

  • Lance Lynn has another rehab start in Charlotte on Wednesday. The goal for him is to throw for five innings, though a specific pitch count was not made clear.
  • Eloy Jimenez is once again playing left field tonight for Charlotte. He is not expected to play the full game.
  • Tim Anderson is expected to head out for a rehab assignment when the White Sox travel for their next road trip. This would set him up to begin playing as early as this upcoming Monday, June 13th.

Lynn has not pitched for the Sox at all this season after injuring his right knee, which required surgery due to a slight tendon tear. His upcoming start on Wednesday will mark his third rehab outing since being assigned to the Charlotte Knights. Previous indications made it seem that Lynn was slated to throw on three separate occasions before being re-evaluated, setting him up for a potential return by next week’s series in Detroit.

Jimenez has been out of the lineup since April 23rd, when he tore the hamstring tendon behind his right knee. Since arriving in Charlotte at the end of May, he’s had a rather slow go and will likely require at least several more games until the team feels his legs are stronger. In five games, thus far, Jimenez is slashing .200/.294/.200 with two walks, a run scored, and no extra-base hits.

Anderson’s recovery process appears to be progressing as expected. He was placed on the 10-day injured list with a strained right groin back on May 31st and, luckily, appeared to avoid a much worse outcome. With a rehab assignment coming next week and no real timetable given, the hope will be that he doesn’t reaggravate something. If things go smoothly, a return by the end of the month doesn’t seem too far out of the equation.

In addition to the three aforementioned players, we also learned that pitchers Joe Kelly and Vince Velasquez are expected to return by the end of June. Velasquez did not suffer as severe of an injury as Kelly, so he would most likely be the first of the two players to make his return.
