CHICAGO – With an already overwhelming list of injuries, the Chicago White Sox are taking steps to ensure it doesn’t escalate further.
Manager Tony La Rusa told reporters Saturday that many of the White Sox veterans are “playing according to the coaches’ instructions that if they get out of the routine, they will reduce it.”
La Rusa, which has 10 players on its injury list, said the pool of players included shortstop team Anderson, who returned from a knee injury this week, as well as first baseman Jose Abreu, outfielder Louis Robert, and hitter Andrew. Vaughn was included. And outfielder AJ Pollock.
The veteran manager also admitted that fans may see some slow runs at first base as a lack of fuss, but the list is filled with “main offensive kids”, who are top picks for Chicago’s Cleveland Guardian and will be in front of Minnesota. And center for catching. Twins for first place in American League Central.
“As long as fans understand this,” La Rusa said, “they’re not lazy, but their feet are important.”
The news came on the day the White Sox lost 6-2 to the Orioles, giving Baltimore a chance to win four games for the first time this season. Chicago has suffered four defeats in a row.
