Default Injury News

Danks - threw a good bullpen session, feels great. Will probably be ready for a rehab assignment this weekend or next week.
EDIT: 6/7 - depending on the time of Danks rehab, looking to be back in the rotation next weekend against the Dodgers or facing the Cubs.

Morel - the same.

Fukudome - has a rib injury, not back as first thought. May have to go on the DL.
EDIT: 6/7 Fukudome on DL, retroactive to Monday

Dunn - has been sick with symptoms of the flu, since last Thursday.

Konerko - http://www.chicagotribune.com/videog...rist-procedure

If Fukudome goes on the DL I'd assume we'd get a taste of Jordan Danks, no?

Maybe Johnson?

Gives you a LH bat for LF/RF/1B/3B?

I would be happy to see this.

I was hoping there was room for him on the opening night roster. He's a solid veteran bat that seemed to do well in the clutch for the Rays.

Perhaps Danks comes up as the 4th OF, and Johnson takes Lillibridge's roster spot to be the backup 1B/3B/DH and primary pinch hitter.

News on Brent Morel doesn't sound positive. He took himself out of Charlotte game last night after one at-bat.

More back issues, but Robin said pregame he's comfortable with Hudson, Escobar and Lillibridge at third base

Bruce Levine
Morel has returned to Chicago to have lower-back injury re-evaluated by team doctors

Default John Danks at USCF

Scott Merkin
John Danks just caught a first pitch from a viking and a dragon. You can't make up this stuff

Default As of June 9th

Viciedo - In 6.10 lineup
Left the 6.8 game due to cramping in both hamstrings. Still tight as of 6.9, left hamstring was tighter than the right.
He was available to pinch-hit.

Danks - Will test his left-shoulder strain on Tuesday in Columbus. "We aren't going to get too far ahead of ourselves. We are trying to take it day by day." said Coop on how many minor league starts Danks will need.

Morel - more in-depth tests to figure out what the latest issue.

I am starting to think that Morel's back may keep him out of action for the remainder of the season. Which brings us back to our overall production at 3B. I think a platoon of Hudson and Escobar (yes, I would like to see Escobar in there 2 or 3 times a week) is fine through July, but if the SOX are still in the thick of things, it wouldn't be a terrible idea to look for some short-term help.

Youk may obviously be the easiest option due to his contract. It would be a classic rent-a-player and if they were to deal for him close to the deadline the financial burden would only be roughly $4M + $1M buyout. I would assume the White Sox could get him for virtually nothing if they picked up the whole tab. I am not a huge fan of Youk, but this would not be a terrible option at that point.

There may be other options out there, but Youkilis is short-term and wouldn't cost the SOX all that much cash. I do know one thing, we are going to need better production out of our 3B as time goes on.

Robin said on the pregame show to not expect Morel to play "anytime soon". When asked what that meant, he said they need to find someone who can figure out what is wrong with Brent's and "to get it fixed". When asked what that meant, he said surgery is a serious option at this point. Not lookin' like Morel will be back this season.
