“Speed, defense, ability to play all three positions,” said White Sox general manager Rick Hahn of Goodwin. “A veteran, left-handed club who knows the role and given the injuries we’ve already had out there will provide some versatility in different options for [White Sox manager] Tony [La Russa] and his staff “.

Expected return:

According to general manager Rick Hahn, Kopech will resume sidelines and bullpen launches in the next few days and perhaps will have a simulated game in the near future.

“So far so good. We could use it,” said manager Tony La Russa. “He’s being very careful as he progresses. So far he’s fine, he’s fine. We’re taking him, we’re not just rushing, thinking we need him to get here and be okay. We are optimistic, but it is a slow game. ” (Last updated: June 10)

CF Luis Robert (broken right hip flexor)
Expected return:

LF Eloy Jiménez (broken left pectoral tendon)
Expected return:

Jiménez sustained the injury by making a reckless jump for a home run during Spring Training and underwent surgery the week the 2021 season began. General manager Rick Hahn said there would be no updates on Jiménez for 12 weeks, although Jiménez certainly looks upbeat on his Instagram page as he goes about his daily work.

“Ultimately, on both [Jiménez and Luis Robert], at some point, we hope to say that they have been allowed to resume baseball activities, “said Hahn.” At that point, given how much time they have wasted, it will take several weeks before they are ready for an assignment. rehabilitation This would be the next stage.

“And only once they are headed for rehab will I be able to give you a satisfactory answer when we can expect them to return. Each of them is immersed in Phase 1 and preparing for Part 2, which is the licensing and resumption of baseball business. ” (Last updated: June 10)
