Chicago White Sox star shortstop Tim Anderson is on the Injured List and out 2-to-4 weeks, as per the White Sox official release.
‘Prior to tonight’s game at Minnesota, the WhiteSox placed shortstop Tim Anderson on the 10-day injured list with a sprained left knee and recalled infielder Lenyn Sosa from Class AAA Charlotte. Anderson is estimated to miss 2-4 weeks after suffering the injury in yesterday’s series opener at the Twins.’
Anderson suffered the injury in a collision near third base during Monday’s victory over the Minnesota Twins.
The two-time All-Star was attempting to tag out Twins baserunner Matt Wallner, who slid into Anderson’s legs as he went into third base.
The 29 year-old Anderson is hitting .298 with four RBIs. Dating back to 2019, Anderson has posted at least a .301 batting average
With Anderson headed to the IL, the White Sox have called up promising young shortstop Lenyn Sosa, who has gotten off to a stellar start this year. Sosa is a top-10 prospect in the White Sox organization and has a .448 batting average in 36 at-bats this season.
The White Sox have started the year 5-6. Losing Anderson will be a tough blow for this team to overcome. The team is also without Joe Kelly, Eloy Jimenez, Liam Hendriks, Garrett Crochet, and Matt Foster, so the injuries are stacking up in Chicago to begin the season.
