White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson to return Monday

by Joe Binder

In a season full of injuries, the return of key players will always be celebrated. That trend only continues for the White Sox on Monday.

Manager Tony La Russa announced prior to Sunday night’s game that Tim Anderson will make his return in tomorrow’s series opener against the Toronto Blue Jays. The former All-Star is currently slated to play shortstop and bat leadoff for the club.

As you may recall, Anderson injured himself when fielding a ground ball on May 29 against the Cubs. He left the game in pain and was later placed on the 10-day injured list with a Grade 1 right groin strain, avoiding both significant injury and time off.

Prior to his stint on the IL, Anderson was the team’s offensive catalyst with an impressive .356/.393/.503 slash to go along with nine doubles, five home runs, 19 RBIs, and eight stolen bases over 40 games this season. He just recently completed a four-game rehab assignment with the Charlotte Knights this past week, going 5-for-15 (.333) with one RBI.

Now that TA will make his return, focus will shift back over to the status of other key players such as Yoan Moncada, Liam Hendriks, and Eloy Jimenez as they all deal with their own respective injuries.
