Chicago White Sox' starting pitcher Michael Kopech met with the media prior to Tuesday's game against the Seattle Mariners. The right-hander offered some insight into his expected return to the mound while talking to reporters.

Kopech, who expects to start Wednesday, added that he is unsure of what his pitch limit may be but assured that he is ready to go now.

Kopech has been on the injured list since Aug. 23 with a left knee strain. He suffered the injury the day before during warmups prior to his start against the Kansas City Royals. While Kopech proceeded to pitch to the first four batters, he exited the game in the top of the first without recording an out in a game the White Sox ended up dropping 6-4.  

Davis Martin has been filling Michael Kopech's spot in the rotation during his absence. However, the White Sox optioned Martin optioned to Triple-A Charlotte earlier this week. Kopech has not been reinstated from the IL at this time, meaning a corresponding move is on the horizon should he take the mound for the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday.
