As if things weren’t already bad enough for the Chicago White Sox, starting pitcher, Michael Kopech, left Sunday’s game in the first inning. He appeared to hurt his leg while planting and throwing a pitch.

White Sox pitching coach Ethan Katz and Chicago’s training staff tended to Michael Kopech on the mound. He tried to regain his composure and get the feeling back but he ultimately left the game.

Kopech’s frustration was palpable and he looked incredibly uncomfortable after the play. On the broadcast, Steve Stone stated that it looked more like an ankle injury than a leg injury. He mentioned how awkward Kopech landed on his foot and it twisted in an unnatural way.

In his place, right-handed pitcher, Reynaldo Lopez, took over and struck out Adolis Garcia. Lopez brings a 3.96 ERA to Sunday’s ballgame against the Rangers.

*Update On Michael Kopech*

The White Sox announced that Michael Kopech left the game with right knee discomfort. He is being further evaluated.
