From beat writer Mark D. Gonzalez of the Chicago Tribune comes word that White Sox center fielder Alejandro De Aza has been activated off the 15-day disabled list. MLB rosters expanded on September 1, so no corresponding move was necessary.
De Aza wound up missing a little more than two weeks with a bruised left ribcage. He will return on Sunday to a .281/.346/.398 batting line, six home runs and 44 RBI. He also boasts 21 stolen bases.
DeWayne Wise did a nice job filling in while De Aza was sidelined and should remain fairly active down the stretch as the Pale Hose attempt to win their first division title since the 2008 season.
Chicago is currently one game up over the Tigers in the American League Central standings. The two teams play this evening in the series finale of a three-game set that has so far gone Detroit’s way.
