The Chicago White Sox have yet another significant injury on their hands. According to Russel Dorsey of Bally Sports, shortstop Tim Anderson suffered a torn ligament in his hand. Dorsey reports Anderson will be out 4-6 weeks and surgery is a possibility.

Anderson appeared to favor his left hand following a check swing during his his final at-bat in Saturday night's game against the Rangers. He eventually grounded out to third base, but the White Sox elected to challenge the close play at first.

As Anderson stood on the base awaiting the call, he took off his batting glove and examined his left hand. The replay review indicated Anderson was out, so he jogged back to the dugout and nothing seemed out of the ordinary.
