The Chicago White Sox are one step closer to getting their rotation back together. Prior to Thursday's series finale in Oakland, Tony La Russa shed some light on who will be pitching this weekend against the Boston Red Sox. He also provided some positive news about Eloy Jiménez, who is out of the lineup once again after being struck by a foul ball in Tuesday's contest.
This is welcome news for the White Sox, who continue to be plagued by the injury bug. All three starters La Russa mentioned have missed their most recent turns in the rotation due to a variety of injuries.
With the news of Lance Lynn's start on Sunday, it will create quite the pitching matchup against former White Sox ace Chris Sale.
Meanwhile, shortstop Tim Anderson, who has remained on the injured list since September 1, was seen taking batting practice prior to Wednesday night's ballgame and fielding groundballs this afternoon. He remains without a set timetable to return.
