Lindstrom eyes return on next road trip
MINNEAPOLIS — Help should be on the way soon for the White Sox bullpen. Right-hander Matt Lindstrom said he expects to be ready when the Sox go to Seattle for a four-game series Aug. 7.
Lindstrom, who opened the season as the closer and was sidelined by an ankle injury that required surgery, last pitched on May 19. He is scheduled to pitch in a simulated game situation in Detroit Tuesday before going on a rehabilitation assignment at AAA Charlotte.
“I’m excited,” Lindstrom said Sunday.
Lindstrom still has some mild discomfort around the area that was repaired, but he said it doesn’t affect his throwing. He said he passed agility tests covering first base and fielding on Saturday.
Lindstrom tore the sheath in his left ankle in Kansas City fielding a bunt by Alcides Escobar.
In 19 innings over 19 appearances, Lindstrom was 2-1 with a 3.32 ERA and six saves.
