I guess this means Stewart goes back into the rotation.

Just a facial contusion, he's lucky. Get well soon, Philip.

Surprised he didn't go on the new 7 day concussion DL.

Sounds like Stewart will start Wednesday at LAA but nothing official.

Very fortunate he didn't have a fracture or worse.

They're dropping like flies aren't they?

Time for those great minor leaguers to get called up and fill in!

LOL

It seems like open season on pitchers this year. Humber did better than anyone could have expected this year, and showed a lot of heart despite slumping lately. Maybe the rest will do him well.

It isn't just the White Sox. Look around baseball.

Right now, the primary catcher for the Giants is Chris Stewart, 12th-round draft pick of the White Sox in 2001. He got into a few games with the Sox in 2006, but he only played 26 major league games before being called up by the Giants this year. Buster Posey and his backup are on the DL. Stewart is being backed up by a 21-year-old rookie who has only caught 4 major league innings.

The White Sox have done better offensively with their minor-leaguer filling in as their primary catcher and minor league catcher backing him up. I have been more impressed with Flowers at the plate than I expected.

As for Humber, I wonder if he might have gone on the 7-day concussion DL, but needed more rest to be a better pitcher in September.

Good thing it wasn't any worse. He wasn't even bleeding (outside anyway) which is a good sign.

I'm glad he's gonna be ok. That was awful to see.

I hope he's able to recover quickly so that he doesn't have to miss any more starts. I'm also hoping that, when he does return, he'll go back to pitching the filthy stuff he was dealing in May and June.

More precautionary business. Again, no need to risk anything.

Humber threw in the bullpen on Tuesday, will make rehab start Aug 30th,
Hopes to come off the DL and pitch against the Twins on Sept. 5th.

The bruise is completely gone. Philip to make rehab start, along with A.J. behind the plate on Tuesday.

This is good news. The Sox need Humber to be ready to start one of the games on Labor day up in Minnesota...along with Stewart. Peavy probably starts on Wed vs the Twins this week,then again on Tuesday vs the Twins. The Sox will need 6 starters to get over that doubleheader hump,and then again against Cleveland in that other doubleheader on Sept 21.

Stewart,Humber and Peavy have got to match the efforts of MB,Gavin and Danks for the Sox to have a chance. If they do, the Sox will have the best rotation down the stretch in this division,and gives them a fighting chance.
