Radio show says that Thome has an intercostal muscle strain. It's nothing to be concerned with they said, just a day-to-day thing. So, that explains Jim sitting. He'll probably sit a couple of days.

I had not heard that - I hope he returns quickly.

It's a good thing our other bats seem to be coming around.

Ugh, I hate these nagging Thome injuries. Last season when he had them, his hitting really suffered the second half. I love his dedication though to play through it.

How in the hell do you strain muscles used for breathing (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intercostal_muscle)?

It's actually common. When we did gross anatomy back in the day, I vividly remember noticing how thin those muscles were. It's a wonder that they don't totally tear at times.

Was that alliteration at the end there? I need coffee.

intercostal muscle? I thought that was the neck muscle you pull from having your head cocked while you sleep on long plane trips. :redneck

oh ... I thought it said intercoastal!

More reason to swing..and make contact. Amazing the difference it feels when you hit the ball and miss it on a swing.

Any news? I need to know whether or not to keep sitting him on my fantasy team.

Looks like he's going to be out for another 4 days.

D'oh, really? The report on whitesox.com made it sound like he'd be playing tomorrow.

The Sun-Times today said he probably wouldnt play til this weekend. So is that tomorrow or today? I would say sit him a few more days. There is no reason to rush something like this.

Sick bay update

The extra day of rest should help most injured Sox recover from nagging strains, although DH Jim Thome (rib cage) may be held out until next week's series in Seattle.

Jermaine Dye (back) would have been in Thursday's lineup against the Tigers and Rob Mackowiak (lower abdomen) says he could have been if the Tigers had started a right-hander.

"It's more of a nagging thing," said Mackowiak, who was pulled halfway through Wednesday night's game. "I can play through it."

Guillen said he did not believe Thome will have to be placed on the 15-day disabled list.
