White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen was rushed to a Phoenix-area hospital Sunday morning after complaining of abdominal pain and was released after passing a kidney stone, the Chicago Tribune reports.
Following the ordeal, Guillen arrived at Chase Field about two hours before Sunday’s game against the Diamondbacks. He was advised by a White Sox doctor to lay down in his office for a bit, but he’s expected to manage this afternoon’s contest anyway.
This isn’t a first for Guillen: he previously passed a kidney stone during the 2004 seaosn, his first as the White Sox’s manager. He said at the time, “that was something I don’t wish anybody has, even my worst enemy.”
Perhaps under the influence of painkillers, Guillen has Adam Dunn making his first start of the season in the outfield Sunday. He’s even playing Dunn in right field in place of Carlos Quentin, instead of in left field over Juan Pierre.
