Philip Humber was a mess following his perfect game on April 21, posting a 7.47 ERA in 10 starts before the White Sox finally shut him down with a strained elbow in mid-June.
Now he’s on the verge of returning from the disabled list, throwing six innings of shutout, two-hit ball last night at Double-A in his third minor-league rehab start.
Humber struck out five, walked zero, and set down the final 16 hitters he faced, looking good enough that Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports that he could be cleared to rejoin the White Sox’s rotation as soon as Tuesday versus the Red Sox, in Boston.
