White Sox second baseman Nick Madrigal will not return during the 2021 season.

The club announced today that Madrigal underwent successful surgery to repair the proximal tendon tears in his right hamstring. That procedure will sideline him for the remainder of this season, but he is expected to return without restrictions come spring 2022.

Madrigal suffered the hamstring injury while running out a groundball in a game vs. Toronto on June 9. The White Sox clarified the initial diagnosis of hamstring soreness as a proximal tear the following day and placed Madrigal on the 60-day injured list.

Before the injury, Madrigal was putting together a solid second season with the White Sox. He slashed .305/.349/.425 with 16 extra-base hits, including two home runs, and 21 RBIs in 54 games.

The White Sox have turned to depth options such as Danny Mendick and Leury Garcia to fill the void at second base since Madrigal’s ailment. Mendick has offered serviceable production, albeit across infrequent spurts of playing time, dating back to the end of the 2019 season. White Sox fans can expect Mendick to remain the primary option at second base for the time being.
