Thursday night was one the Chicago White Sox and their fans will remember forever. The South Siders defeated the New York Yankees at the Field of Dreams thanks to an incredible walk-off home run by Tim Anderson to put an exclamation point on a game that seemingly followed a movie script.

Lost in the shuffle of all the excitement, White Sox outfielder Adam Engel exited the game after the seventh inning due to right groin tightness.

It’s unclear exactly how Engel tweaked his groin, but an instance in the bottom of the third appears to be when the discomfort started. Engel led off the home half of the frame with a walk. Anderson then laced a one-out double down the left-field line that sent Engel from first to home to put the White Sox within one run.

Upon rounding the bases, Engel appeared to be favoring one side as he scampered toward home plate. However, he remained in the game playing right field and making two more plate appearances.

When the White Sox took the field to start the eighth inning, acting manager Miguel Cairo sent Leury Garcia out to right field in place of Engel. The team provided a brief update with minimal information, only stating that Engel was dealing with right groin tightness and he is considered day-to-day.

Engel’s name has been synonymous with lower-body injuries throughout the 2021 campaign. The speedy outfielder initially suffered a strained right hamstring in Spring Training that sidelined him until June 6. After playing in 10 just games, that same ailment sent Engel back to the injured list on June 22 (retroactive to June 20). Luckily his second absence was short-lived, as he returned to the White Sox on July 7.

With an off-day today, the White Sox likely won’t provide a further update (if needed) until Saturday when their series vs. the Yankees resumes at Guaranteed Rate Field.
